What is the most common repair on Bally and IGT slots?
Slot machines are rugged and dependable. Many customers report their machines have worked for over 20 years without a problem. Most of the problems with slots made from the late 1980's to today are related to "SRAM" battery failure. On IGT and Bally slots the factory installed a new Lithium Ion battery that can last up to 20 years. Most fail every 5 to 10 years and can cause an error code to show on your LED display. The game is frozen and requires special equipment to re-start. Simply soldering in a new battery will not work. A technician must run a sometimes complex SRAM reset procedure just to get the game started then setup several game options to make everything work again.
