NOTE:  Do not follow these instructions for Elite Edge.  Please see the Elite Edge
Instruction section.

1. Turn off and unplug the game.

2. Unlock and open the CPU section, then place something in front of the front bezel to keep the

touchscreen from being scratched when the cash tower section is opened.

3. In the CPU section, locate and disconnect the coin mech harness (blue and gray ribbon cable)

found near the lower edge of the motherboard (see Figure 1) and remove it from the cable
clamps.  Also disconnect the counter harness on the left edge of the motherboard, opposite the
touchscreen controller (see Figure 1).  Then pull both connectors back through the access
hole below the board (see Figure 

2

) and out of the game.

4. Close and lock the CPU section.

5. Unlock and open the cash access section.

6. Pull out the bill acceptor magazine.

7. EVO only:  Disconnect the bill acceptor power connectors, as well as the fan and LED board

connectors (see Figure 

3

).

EVO Wallette only:  Remove the 2 screws fastening the bill acceptor mounting clip to the
game and gently pull up on the bill acceptor so that you can access the two connectors on the
right side.  Disconnect the 2 connectors and remove the bill acceptor and mounting clip from
the game.  Then remove the other two screws fastening the clip to the bill acceptor.  See Figure

 

4.

  Skip to “Bill Acceptor Installation”.

8. Remove the 6 screws fastening the bill acceptor mounting plate to the CPU section (see Figure

 3). 

One screw also fastens the strain relief cord.  Once the screws are removed, pull the
harnesses attached to the CPU section through the access hole in the bill acceptor mounting
plate so the CPU section can be pulled free of the bill acceptor.  Disconnect the IEC power
connector from the CPU section, then place the CPU section down with the touchscreen side
facing up.

9. Remove the 4 screws on the reverse side of the mounting plate fastening the bill acceptor

bezel to the plate (see Figure 

5

).  One screw also fastens the cable clamp.

10. Remove the 4 screws fastening the bill acceptor to the mounting plate (see Figure

 5

) and

remove the bill acceptor.

Bill Acceptor Installation

1. Remove the magazine from the new bill acceptor.  If you are replacing the bill acceptor on

an EVO Wallette, skip to step 5.

2. Using Figure 

6

, insert the bill acceptor into the mounting plate, then fasten the bill acceptor to

the plate with the 4 screws.

3. Reattach the bill acceptor bezel to the mounting plate by replacing the 4 screws on the

reverse side of the plate (see Figure 

5

).  Also replace the cable clamp.

4. Reconnect the IEC power connector on the CPU section, then route the harnesses from the

CPU section back through the access hole in the bill acceptor mounting plate.  Use the 6
screws to reattach the plate to the CPU section (see Figure 

3

) and fasten the strain relief

cord.
