Troubleshooting Your Touchscreen
MICROTOUCH:
Features:
- SMT-3 controller in white box
- SMT-4 controller in black box
- USB controller (open-face)
- Green LED on controller lit at half brightness, full brightness when screen is touched
- Overlay functions on capacitance.
- Touchscreen cable is on right side of CRT.
Troubleshooting:
- LED flashing from 1 to 5 times - detected error or possible defective controller
- LED not lit - Check +12Vdc. The touchscreen and/or controller may also be defective.
See Figure 1 for the touchscreen overlay connector schematic.
CALIBRATION:
1. Find the CALIBRATE button on the I/O board or the OSD board inside the CPU section, and
press it to enter the screen calibration mode.
2. Touch the center of the first cross that appears. Once you release your finger, a second
cross will appear.
NOTE: You must hold your finger on the circle for approximately 2 seconds for the calibration
to be recognized.
3. Touch the center of the second cross that appears on the screen.
4. Once the second cross is touched and released, another cross will appear on the screen. To
test the calibration of the screen, touch the cross with your finger and slowly drag your finger
around the screen. The cross should follow your movement.
5. Touch the EXIT button.
If you have enabled high resolution, the game will prompt you to go through the calibration procedure
twice.
6. The game will then prompt you to calibrate the joystick. Move the joystick as far left as it will go,
release the joystick, and then press one of the buttons on the joystick.
NOTE: Your joystick may not appear to be functioning correctly during calibration, but it is
important that you continue the calibration steps. After calibration has been completed, it will
function properly.
7. Move the joystick as far right as it will go, release the joystick, and then press one of the joystick
buttons.
8. Move the joystick as far up as it will go, release the joystick, and then press one of the joystick
buttons.
9. Move the joystick as far down as it will go, then release the joystick and press one of the joystick
buttons.
10. Then, without touching the joystick, press one of the buttons on the joystick to complete calibration.
11. Touch the EXIT button.

Troubleshooting Your Touchscreen (cont’d)
CALIBRATION or LOCKUP PROBLEMS:
•
If the calibration is off over the whole area of the screen, calibrate the screen again. If this does not
correct the problem, replace the touchscreen.
•
If the calibration is off in one area, check for scratches or nicks on the screen. If you detect
scratches or nicks, replace the touchscreen.
•
If the screen loses calibration entirely, check the ground pin on the line cord.
•
Microwave ovens and neon lights can and will interfere with the calibration of the touchscreen and
should not be within 6 feet (or 2 meters) of the game.
•
Improper grounding will affect the operation of the touchscreen.
•
If you are experiencing problems with double-touching (e.g., two cards are taken away after only
one touch to the screen), make sure the AC plug and wall outlets are properly grounded.
NOTE: If the cable was incorrectly installed, the touchscreen response will be out of sync by
180 degrees.

Hard Drive Removal
Hard Drive Identification:
To determine whether your hard drive is quick-click or non-quick-click, look for a light gray adapter
between the hard drive adapter and the hard drive mounting bracket. See Figure 1. If there is such an
adapter, then you have a quick-click hard drive; if not, then your hard drive is non-quick-click. The PATA
hard drive with a clamp will simply have a clamp as shown in Figure 1. The SATA hard drive is also
shown in Figure 1. The SATA is easily identifable by the lack of a hard drive ribbon cable and adapter.

Hard Drive Removal
Hard Drive Identification:
To determine whether your hard drive is quick-click or non-quick-click, look for a light gray adapter
between the hard drive adapter and the hard drive mounting bracket. See Figure 1. If there is such an
adapter, then you have a quick-click hard drive; if not, then your hard drive is non-quick-click. The PATA
hard drive with a clamp will simply have a clamp as shown in Figure 1. The SATA hard drive is also
shown in Figure 1. The SATA is easily identifable by the lack of a hard drive ribbon cable and adapter.

Hard Drive Removal
Hard Drive Identification:
To determine whether your hard drive is quick-click or non-quick-click, look for a light gray adapter
between the hard drive adapter and the hard drive mounting bracket. See Figure 1. If there is such an
adapter, then you have a quick-click hard drive; if not, then your hard drive is non-quick-click. The PATA
hard drive with a clamp will simply have a clamp as shown in Figure 1. The SATA hard drive is also
shown in Figure 1. The SATA is easily identifable by the lack of a hard drive ribbon cable and adapter.

15. Note the orientation of the touchscreen (i.e. the positioning of the ribbon cable and which side is
the front) before removing it from the monitor.
For 17” and 19” games: Use dental floss to carefully cut the foam tape holding the screen to the
monitor. Once the touchscreen is completely free from the monitor, remove any residual foam
tape from the screen with denatured alcohol and clean the glass with the supplied alcohol wipe.
Monitor/Touchscreen Installation
1. Clean the glass on the LCD monitor that you will be using with an alcohol wipe.
For 17” and 19” games ONLY: Cut pieces of the supplied 1/2” foam tape long enough to cover the
edges of the monitor without overlapping. After the tape is in place, peel off the backing.
For Widescreen games: If the tape on the inside of the front bezel is looking worn, remove it and
replace it with the provided neoprene tape. The tape sticks to the bezel, and the backing should
NOT be removed.
NOTE: Do NOT remove the backing of the tape that is attached to the Widescreen
Touchscreen. If there is no tape attached to the touchscreen you received, cut pieces of the
supplied double-sided foam tape long enough to cover each edge of the touchscreen without overlapping. Remove the backing from ONLY ONE side of the tape and place it around
the edge of the REAR of the touchscreen. The rear of the touchscreen can be identified by
the tracing around the touchscreen. The side of the touchscreen with NO TRACING is the
rear, and the tape should be applied to that side. Once the tape is in place, DO NOT remove
the backing.

If replacing both the monitor and the touchscreen: Carefully place the new touchscreen over the
new monitor in the same manner that the old touchscreen and monitor were attached, making
sure that the screen is properly and evenly aligned over the monitor glass. Clean the front of the
touchscreen with an alcohol wipe once it is in place. Reattach the fish paper foam tape strip to the
top edge of the monitor/touchscreen assembly (17” games only; see Figure 8). You may need to
attach the provided wire clamps to the rear of the monitor assembly. If so, note their location on the
rear of the monitor your removed.
3. For 17” games: Replace the left and right mounting brackets on the monitor and secure each with
2 screws. Carefully slide the new monitor into the bezel, making certain that the edge of the
monitor with the fish paper is secured underneath the touchscreen controller’s mounting plate.
Ensure that the monitor is properly centered, then secure the mounting brackets to the bezel with
4 screws. See Figure 8.
For 19” and Widescreen games: Carefully slide the new monitor assembly into the bezel, making
sure (on standard 19” models) that the strip of fish paper is secured between the edge of the
assembly with the Velcro and lamp mounting bracket. Ensure that the monitor is properly centered,
then secure the LCD bracket to the bezel with 4 screws. See Figure 9.
4. For 17” games: Line up the touchscreen controller on the rectangular piece of fish paper. If you
replaced the touchscreen, connect the touchscreen controller cable to the touchscreen controller
and secure with 2 tie wraps, making sure that the wraps go around the fish paper. Position this
touchscreen controller assembly on the mounting plate and secure with 2 screws. See Figure 7.
For 19” games: Replace the inverter on the Velcro. Place the rectangular piece of fish paper on
the mounting holes on the LCD bracket. If you replaced the touchscreen, carefully connect the
touchscreen controller cable to the touchscreen controller and secure with 2 tie wraps. Position
the touchscreen controller on top of the fish paper and secure to the LCD bracket with 2 screws or
simply with Velcro. See Figure 7.
For Widescreen games: Resecure the two standoffs to the touchscreen controller bracket, making sure that the standoffs secure this bracket to the rear of the monitor. If you replaced the
touchscreen, carefully connect the touchscreen controller cable to the touchscreen controller,
and secure it with two tie wraps. Position the touchscreen controller over the two standoffs and
secure it in place with two screws (see Figure 7). Replace the inverter on the Velcro.

DIP SWITCH SETTINGS IN ION GAMES
The following table provides information on the functionality of the hard DIP switches in Megatouch
games. Make sure to read the information in the Notes column to determine what is affected when
performing these functions. After performing any DIP switch function, make sure to follow the instructions on the screen. In most cases, you will be instructed to reset the DIP switch in order to reboot the
game. If you fail to reset the DIP switch before rebooting, it could result in corruption of the hard drive.
NOTE: The DIP switch functionality is built into the software. To access the DIP switches through the
software: Turn off the game. Set DIP switch 1 to the closed position. Turn power on. When the
message Please reset DIP 1 to proceed appears, reset DIP 1 to the open position. The Merit
diagnostics page will appear. Touch ? for information on DIP switch functionality. Touch the specific
DIP switch to activate it. Touch X to exit.

Usage/Notes
• Configures the CMOS settings on the motherboard to Merit
specifications and checks the files on the hard drive.
A checksum test should be performed when the game is locking
up or rebooting. If the test fails, the program should be reloaded
onto the hard drive. After reloading, perform another checksum
test. If it fails again, the hard drive should be replaced.
• Identifies system hardware and configures the motherboard.
A hardware configuration occasionally needs to be performed
after a kit is installed and the touchscreen is not responding to
touch or the calibration is off.

Memory clear for
TournaMAXX™
and
TouchTunes®
• Clears the login name, password, access phone number, and
all call-in settings for TournaMAXX users.
• Clears all the loaded albums for TouchTunes users.
• Clears current books, coin-in, high scores and resets the
software options.
A memory clear should be performed when a game is not able to
connect to TournaMAXX and there is some question about the
accuracy of the information in the Dial-Up Network Screen. After
performing a memory clear, TournaMAXX setup information must
be re-entered, and an Update From Server should be
performed.
NOTE: TournaMAXX games must perform an Update From
Server BEFORE performing a memory clear.
4&7
Complete
memory clear
• Clears ALL memory on hard drive including the TournaMAXX
player database, TournaMAXX settings, advertising screens,
bookkeeping, high scores, coin-in, options, etc. It resets the
game to the factory defaults, and marks bad sectors on the
hard drive.
A complete memory clear should only be performed when the
game is locking up or resetting and it has passed the checksum
test. After performing a memory clear, the player database
should be reloaded, TournaMAXX setup information must be reentered, and an Update From Server should be performed.
NOTE: TournaMAXX games must perform an Update From
Server BEFORE performing a complete memory clear.

Settings for the bill acceptor are controlled by the settings for Electronic Mech 2 (2E) in
the Coin-In Menu screen.
To set the Coin-In Menu to provide a bonus credit for the use of a dollar, set the
number of coins (for Electronic Mech 2) to 4 and set the number of credits to 5. This will
provide 5 credits for each dollar entered. Meter Pulses can be set to 4 to record the
amount of “coins” in the cashbox, or it can be set to 5 to record the number of credits
played, depending on your individual need. An illustration of the coin-in menu set to
offer 5 credits for a dollar, with the meter counting coins, is shown below.

Setting the Coin-In Menu (for Games with 2007 and Later Software):
Game cost can be controlled two ways: by changing the number of credits required to play a game
or by changing the cost of a credit. The Coin-In Menu allows you to adjust the cost of a credit, and
provides a way to give players “bonus” credits for depositing a higher amount of money. On the
Cash-In and Credits Table, the “-” and “+” buttons are used to change the number of credits, while
the corresponding price value for the credits is entered by pressing the Edit button in that row.
NOTE: The “Edit” button will bring up a numbered keypad, limited to 2 decimal places.
The Cash-In and Credits Table is ordered, so values must be set in increasing increments
from top to bottom of the screen. The final two values, however, can be entered as “0”,
which is the equivalent of N/A. As each row on the table is filled in, the “Edit” button will
appear for the subsequent row below it.
Likewise, when programming the channels on the Coin-In Menu, Channel 1 is set for the
lowest value coin, Channel 2 for the next-lowest value, and so on. The meter pulse, which
is the highest common divisor of all the monetary values of the channels, is independent of
the credits and tracks only the smallest unit of currency. Operators can use this number to
determine the amount of money earned on a game by multiplying the meter pulse by the
reading on the hard meter.
NOTE: Changing the values of the channels on the Coin-In Menu may change the meter
pulse. Therefore, a Cash Settlement Collection should be performed prior to adjusting the
channels in order to accurately reflect coin drop based on the hard meter reading. Adjusting the channels will not affect the Cash-In and Credits Table.
To give customers bonus credits for inserting larger denominations, manually adjust the credits
earned per dollar value on the Credit and Values Table. Coins may be deposited in any combination of values and the game will automatically register the highest number of credits for the total
amount of coins deposited. Once a game is played, any remaining fractional credits are saved
and applied to the next purchase.
NOTE: If you are enabling bonus credits, it is recommended that the game be set to display in credits and not money. If the game is set to display in money, all money values will
be based on the value of 1 credit, which is typically the most expensive credit.
The type of currency registered can be adjusted by touching the Change Currency button at the
bottom right-hand corner of the Coin-In Menu. Touching the Default Settings button just below it
will return the Coin-In Menu to its factory settings. This setting can be adjusted (as previously
described), but will return if the game memory is cleared.

Monitor Adjustment Procedure
The vertical/horizontal controls and brightness/contrast controls are located on the OSD board, which
is attached to Velcro inside the CPU section. Pressing the button labeled MENU on the control board
will show the on-screen display on the monitor. Use the LEFT and RIGHT buttons to move through the
menu. Press MENU again to select the option you want to change. Use the LEFT and RIGHT buttons
to increase or decrease the value of the selected option. Press the MENU button again to deselect the
option. The AUTO button will automatically optimize all display sets such as video offset, gain, position, phase, and frequency. Press the EXIT button to exit. Adjust the monitor controls until the screens
look as suggested in the following steps.
1. Set the game to the Checkerz game screen.
2. Adjust the vertical and horizontal size and vertical and horizontal position to make sure that the
game screen fills the monitor screen and that the game screen is centered.
3. Adjust the brightness and contrast controls until the top sets of checkers are a rich red and the
bottom set are a dark gray. The feet on the “Checkerz” character should be white. (Adjusting the
brightness and contrast can also correct for a lack of sharpness.)
NOTE: Auto adjustment and brightness can be controlled without calling up the OSD menu.
Press and hold the EXIT button for 3 seconds to perform the auto adjustment. Press and hold
the LEFT and RIGHT buttons to adjust brightness.

Field Bulletin
Date: 3-20-06
merit industries, inc.
Issue:
Merit has received field reports of intermittent touchscreen problems on
some Ion games, which can make the calibration drift or result in missed
touches. Our investigation into the matter revealed that a small number
of games were manufactured in September 2005 without touchscreen
insulation tape, which became necessary when our touchscreen supplier
changed their manufacturing method.
Games affected:
The potentially affected games are Ion EVO, Ion Elite Edge and Ion
Wallette games manufactured in September 2005 only. The first six
digits of the serial number of these games will be 09XX05
(where XX can be any number).
Symptoms:
The touchscreen may not recognize touch, the calibration may be off or
may drift and performing a touchscreen calibration does not correct the
problem.
Solution:
If your game is experiencing calibration problems similar to those
described above, and the serial number of the game is in the indicated
serial number range above, unlock and open the front bezel and make
sure it is properly taped. Figure 1 shows where to look to determine if
the bezel is taped. If you determine that the touchscreen does not have
the tape, contact your distributor for a free tape kit or install your own
one-inch wide electrical or polyester tape. Follow the instructions on the
reverse side of this bulletin to install the tape.

Bezel Tape Installation Instructions
1. Turn off and unplug the game.
2. Unlock and open the CPU section and place something in front of the game to brace the bezel once
the strain relief cord is undone.
3. Remove the screw and washer fastening the strain relief cord, then remove the remaining 5 screws
fastening the LCD mounting bracket to the game. The dongle socket ground wire will also be
removed in the process.
4. Remove the nut, wire and bolt from the dongle socket assembly located on LCD mounting bracket,
then remove and carefully set the bracket aside with wire connections intact.
5. Loosen the 3 screws on the monitor side of the hinges in order to raise the hinges and allow room to
remove the monitor.
NOTE: Elite Edge games may require you to remove the joystick in order to allow the necessary
room for loosening of the hinge screws. To remove the joystick, carefully place the game on its side.
Remove the 2 screws securing the protective bracket on the bottom of the game and remove the
bracket. Disconnect the joystick connector and remove the joystick. Return the game to its upright
position.
6. Carefully remove the monitor from the bezel, leaving the wire harness connections intact.
NOTE: You may need to disconnect some wire harnesses to allow for more maneuverability when
applying the tape to the bezel. Make sure any disconnected harnesses are returned to their proper
position during reinstallation of the monitor.
7. Apply the supplied tape to the inside edge of the bezel as shown in Figure 2. Tape each side so that
the width of the tape covers the entire plastic lip, from the edge of the bezel to the bend in the plastic.
8. Carefully slide the monitor into the bezel, under the loosened hinges. Ensure that the monitor is
properly centered, then tighten the hinge screws. Make sure to reconnect any wire harnesses you
may have disconnected.
NOTE: If you removed the joystick on your Elite Edge, carefully return the game to its side and
reconnect the joystick connector to the connector in the game. Place the protective bracket in its
previous position, sliding it under the lazy Susan and making sure the cutouts are placed around the
installed screws. Make sure all wires are secured inside the bracket, then reinstall the 2 screws
securing the bracket. Return the game to its upright position.
9. Reattach the LCD mounting bracket using the 6 existing screws. The dongle socket ground wire and
strain relief cord will also be fastened in the process.
10. Replace the dongle socket assembly by securing the bolt, green wire and nut over the LCD mounting
bracket.
11. Close and lock the CPU section.
12. Plug in and turn on the game.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
215-639-4700 or 1-800-523-2760 or by E-mail: TechCenter@meritind.com

Issue:
Force 2006 and Ion 2006 games have been reported as slow to
transition between the idle screens, the main player menu, and the
operator setup screens. The response of the touchscreen has also been
reported in some instances to be slower during high-speed play.
Games affected:
Only games running Force 2006 and Ion 2006 software.
Symptoms:
The game is slow to come out of the idle screens, main player menu and
setup screens. This can also cause a problem with the display of the
icons on the main player menu. Some players may notice that the
response of the touchscreen during high-speed game play is also
affected.
Solution:
Merit Industries is providing a free software upgrade disc to correct this
problem. The upgrade should be installed on all games running Force
2006 and Ion 2006 software. It will update the software to the 20.10
software release. This disc will be supplied to all distributors who
received the affected kits and games. It is important to note that this is a
full upgrade, which will overwrite data. Therefore, any operatorcustomized settings will need to be reset following the installation. Also,
make sure to perform an Update from Server before installing this disc
if your game is connected to MegaNet or TournaMAXX so that all player
information is retained. Follow the instructions on the reverse side of this
sheet to install the disc.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at

A memory clear should be performed when a game is not able to connect to
TournaMAXX™ and there is some question about the information in the Dial-Up
Network Screen being correct. After performing a memory clear,
TournaMAXX™ setup information must be re-entered, and an “Update From
Server” should be performed.
NOTE: TournaMAXX™ games must perform an “Update From Server” BEFORE
performing a memory clear.
Clears ALL memory on hard drive including the TournaMAXX™ player
database, TournaMAXX™ settings, advertising screens, bookkeeping, high
scores, coin-in, options, etc. It resets the game to the factory defaults.
It also marks bad sectors on hard drive.
A complete memory clear should only be performed when the game is locking up
or resetting and it has passed the checksum test. After performing a complete
memory clear, the player database should be reloaded, TournaMAXX™ setup
information must be re-entered, and an initial connection and “Update From
Server” should be performed.
NOTE: TournaMAXX™ games must perform an “Update From Server” BEFORE
performing a complete memory clear.
When the watchdog timer is enabled, it will reboot the machine within 2
minutes after a failure, allowing the game to automatically reset itself if a
problem arises without needing a technician present.

Re: DVD Software Updates
Merit will be switching from CD to DVD Force software updates beginning with the September software
release. In response to operator feedback that software updates take too long, coupled with the
inexpensive cost and increased reliability of DVDs, Merit has decided to make the switch to DVD
technology. This will decrease the amount of time required to install software, as DVD readers have a
faster data transfer rate. In addition to faster installation, DVDs hold more data, which means fewer discs
to install. The entire Force 2006 update will fit on one DVD.
DVD readers also read and install CDs. Since the Maxx platform will continue to use CDs for software
updates, this allows operators to use one reader to update both Maxx and Force games.
DVD readers are readily available at retail consumer electronics stores and on the Internet. Merit has
tested and approved the following DVD reader for use with all DVD and CD updates: Sony model
DDU1613. The Lite-on brand DVD, model SOHD-16P9S, has also been approved for all DVD updates
and CD updates to all games with the exception of games that have Telco motherboards. Due to
variations within a model number, manufacturer changes, and other variables, Merit cannot guarantee the
functionality of any reader. We recommend that you test your reader with all your Merit products. Other
DVD readers may also be compatible and we will continue to test and approve more readers for use with
the software.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
215-639-4700 or 800-445-9353, or by E-mail at TechCenter@meritind.com.

Re:
Testing the Coin Mech and Bill Acceptor in Megatouch Games
Megatouch software provides a screen in operator setup to allow for bill acceptor and coin mech testing.
If you are testing the coin mech or bill acceptor in your game, you should only use this I/O Test Screen in
order to perform testing. Testing the bill acceptor any other way will accrue money on the game, which
can affect the value of a credit and therefore affect cash settlement fees for premium services related to
linked music and certain games. To test the coin mech and/or bill acceptor, follow the steps below.
1. Press the SETUP button to enter operator setup.
2. Touch the Diagnostics button and then touch I/O Test.
3. Test the bill acceptor and/or coin mech by inserting money and ensuring that it registers correctly
on the Diagnostics Screen. A green light next to the appropriate channel will register each time
that channel is tested, and the number next to the channel should increment appropriately with
each test. NOTE: On most U.S. games, one dollar will give you 4 pulses.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
215-639-4700 or 800-445-9353, or by e-mail at TechCenter@meritind.com.

Re:
New Security Keys Used with Ion and Force 2007 Software
Due to increased sales and supplier issues, Merit is now using multiple vendor components for security
keys in order to accommodate market demand. Because the new keys are a different component, the Ion
and Force 2007, version 22.02, software had to be updated in order to work with the new keys.
Therefore, you must keep the key and software together to ensure proper functionality. If you install a
new key into a game running version 22.02 software, you may receive the error message, “Key Range
Mismatch”. If this happens, you must either install the security key that came with the software or
update the game to a later version of 22 software.

Re:
Wireless Networking
Because of inherent limitations in wireless technology, intermittent wireless communication problems can
occur. These problems can happen for a number of reasons, including radio signal interference from
various consumer electronics, obstacles, such as walls, in the way of communication, and overloading the
router with too many devices. In order to prevent some of these problems, care should be taken when
placing the Megatouch game(s) and, if applicable, the router. Position all communicating devices so that
the number of walls or ceilings between them is minimized. Keep them in a centralized location with good
airflow and keep them away from electrical devices or appliances that generate RF noise.
If you lose your wireless network connection for any reason, simply reboot the game and the connection
will be reestablished. Additionally, after configuring or changing your wireless network settings, reboot
the game in order to ensure that your wireless network is properly established.
It is important to note that if you are using security, the Megatouch only supports 64 or 128-bit WEP
encryption. Additionally, if you are unsuccessful with your initial connection attempt, try changing the
channel on the router to a lower channel. Most routers default to channel 6, if you are having difficulties,
try changing it to channel 3 or 4.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
215-639-4700 or 800-445-9353, or by e-mail at TechCenter@meritgames.com.

Re:
Replacing 500-Note with 700-Note Bill Acceptors in Aurora Games
If desired, you may replace the 500-note bill acceptor in your Aurora game with your own 700-note
stacker. To do so, you must have a rear door with one of the bosses on the door removed (see Figure 1).
If your door does not already have the specified boss removed, then you may carefully remove it,
making sure not to damage the plastic or finish in the surrounding area.
THIS BOSS MUST
BE REMOVED
FIGURE 1 – AURORA REAR DOOR FROM THE INSIDE
After installing the 700-note stacker, you will also have to remove the locking cash bracket and not
reinstall it. Although each cash bracket has a different key, all Aurora games built with 500-note stackers
have the same key for the rear door, so it may be beneficial to change the lock on your game.

Issue:
When linking a Merit Megatouch® game and a TouchTunes® jukebox,
several errors have been reported.
Games affected:
Any Megatouch game linked with any TouchTunes jukebox can exhibit
these errors.
Symptoms:
The album covers on the TouchTunes jukebox can turn solid black.
Because the Megatouch game displays exactly what is shown on the
TouchTunes jukebox, the game will also display the black album covers.
It is important to note that while the album artwork is missing, the album
information is still visible and selectable and the jukebox will continue to
play music.
A second issue has been reported where the communications module on
the TouchTunes jukebox will crash. If this happens, the game can no
longer communicate with the jukebox. If a customer selects music from
the game, the game will try to communicate with the jukebox, and
because the jukebox module is not running, it will eventually time out.
This will result in displaying the error “Jukebox Connection failed –
rejected or timed out.”
Both of the above issues can be temporarily resolved by performing a
complete reboot of the TouchTunes jukebox.
Solution:
TouchTunes released version 2.4.0-45 software, which greatly reduced
the occurrence of the problems above; however, the black album covers
would still intermittently appear. TouchTunes released another version,
2.4.0-95, which appears to resolve the issues above. Both Merit and
TouchTunes have tested and approved TouchTunes software version
2.4.0-95 linked to a Megatouch game running version 23 software. In
order for proper functionality, all TouchTunes jukeboxes linked to
Megatouch games should be running these versions of software.

Re:
Linking Megatouch® Games with TouchTunes® Gen 3 Jukeboxes
TouchTunes is releasing Gen 3 hardware and software, which does not currently support the link with
Megatouch games. TouchTunes may also decide to upgrade existing Gen 2 units to Gen 3 software in
the future. If you are linking your Megatouch game to a TouchTunes jukebox, be advised that in order for
the link to continue to work, the jukebox has to remain at Gen 2 (version 2.4.0-95) software.
Merit remains committed to continue support for the existing Megatouch / TouchTunes link. If you have
any concerns about Gen 3 software, you should contact TouchTunes, as they have dropped the support
for the link in their latest software release and do not currently have plans to implement it.

Re:
Game Cleaning and Maintenance
As preventive maintenance to keep your Megatouch video games running at peak performance, it is
important to clean your games on a regular basis.
Cleaning the Fans and Vents: The fans and vents should be cleaned of any dust and grime on a
regular basis to ensure proper ventilation of the game. We recommend that you check the fans every 6
weeks. To ensure proper operation of the game, it is important that all fans are operating correctly and
that the airflow is unobstructed. Make sure nothing is placed inside the cabinet or next to the fan vents
that would inhibit the flow of air. Also, if any fans are not operating, it is important that they be replaced.
Checking the Fan Speed: It is also important to check the CPU fan speed of your Megatouch at regular
intervals. Do so by going into operator setup, pressing Diagnostics, then pressing System Info. The
CPU fan speed will be displayed on the following page. If the fan speed is below 3500 RPM it is
recommended that the CPU fan be replaced. If it below 3000 RPM it is recommended that the CPU fan
be replaced immediately. Additionally, a physical check of all fans is highly suggested, especially if there
are any unusual noises coming from a fan.
Cleaning the Cabinet: The cabinet should be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Always
apply the cleaner to the cloth and not directly on the game. Liquids could enter the cabinet and damage
electronics inside.
Cleaning the Joystick: The joystick should be cleaned with a damp cloth and mild detergent. Always
apply the cleaner to the cloth and not directly on the game. Liquids could enter the housing and damage
electronics inside.
Cleaning the Touchscreen Monitor: ·The touchscreen glass should be cleaned with a damp cloth and
isopropyl alcohol or a non-ammonia cleanser. Do not use any abrasive or vinegar-based cleansers, as
they will damage the touchscreen glass.
NOTE: DO NOT USE ANY ABRASIVE SOLVENTS, ACID OR VINEGAR-BASED CLEANSERS ON THE
MONITOR OR SIDE DECALS. OVER TIME, SUCH CLEANSERS COULD HARM THE TOUCHSCREEN
AND ERASE THE DECALS. BE CAREFUL NOT TO USE COMMERCIAL CLEANERS CONTAINING
ANY OF THESE SUBSTANCES.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
215-826-1400 or 800-523-2760, or by e-mail at TechCenter@meritgames.com.

Re:
Bill Acceptor Upgrade for the New Five-Dollar Bill
Merit’s bill acceptor supplier, MEI, has developed recognition software for the new five-dollar bill that
recently entered circulation. There are two options to upgrade the bill acceptor in your Megatouch game.
MEI offers a handheld programming device and an adapter cable (9-pin AC power cable, MEI part
number 01-12-139), which can be used to perform the update. You can also take the bill acceptor to an
authorized MEI service center to have it reprogrammed. A list of authorized service centers is available
on MEI’s Web site at www.meiglobal.com.
Merit began using the newly programmed acceptors in manufactured games on January 16th. Therefore,
all games with the serial number 011608XXXXXXXX or greater (the first 6 digits indicate the date of
manufacture) already have the new bill acceptor installed and require no additional programming.
For games that require reprogramming, follow the instructions below if you are programming the bill
acceptor yourself.
1. Turn off the game and disconnect it from its power source.
2. Disconnect the 2 connectors running to the side of the bill acceptor, taking note of how they are
connected so you can reconnect them later.
IMPORTANT: Make sure to take note of your bill acceptor connectors before removing
them. If the connectors aren’t properly connected and aligned when replacing them, you
can render your bill acceptor inoperable.
3. Connect the 30-pin connector on the harness attached to the handheld programming device to
the same location on the bill acceptor where you just removed the previous 2 connectors.
4. Connect the 9-pin connector from the separate AC power cable to the mating 9-pin connector on
the harness attached to the programming device. Plug the other end of this cable into an outlet.
5. Locate the switches on the opposite side of the bill acceptor and turn on switch 8 (all other
switches should be off).
6. Plug in and turn on the game. The software will download to the bill acceptor.
7. Once the software is downloaded, the bill acceptor will perform a run and stack. Wait for the run
and stack before disconnecting the device.
8. Turn off power to the game and disconnect the 30-pin connector from the bill acceptor.
9. Return switch 8 to the off position.
10. Reconnect the 2 bill acceptor connectors as shown in Figures 1 and 2.
IMPORTANT: Make sure to take note of your bill acceptor connectors before replacing
them. If the connectors aren’t properly connected and aligned when replacing them, you
can render your bill acceptor inoperable.
11. Close and lock the game.
12. Turn on the game.
13. Test the functionality of the bill acceptor to make sure that it is properly registering and giving the
appropriate number of credits for the new five-dollar bill.
If you have any questions please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
800-523-2760 or 215-826-1400, or by e-mail at TechCenter@meritgames.com.

Re: Ion 2008.5 Software Update
All operators should be aware that if they downloaded the 2008 software update via the broadband
download (V24.25) and they wish to upgrade their Megatouch to 2008.5 software (V25), they must do so
via download. If the 2008 software was done by download, the 2008.5 must be done in the same manner
and not by delta disc. The broadband download to 2008.5 can be done remotely by computer and there is
no key change, so there is no need to actually visit the site. In most cases the 2008.5 download can be
fully completed overnight with little to no interruption of game operations.
Additionally, updating in this manner is an advantage to the operators in that the download is safer – it
partitions the drive so that it stores both the old version and the new version (in the event that there is any
need to revert to the older software version).

Issue:
Certain games updating from 2008 to 2008.5 software may lose the local
AMI music catalog after installing the software update.
Games affected:
Only certain games using the delta disc to update from version 2008
(V24.04, V24.05 and V24.06) to 2008.5 (V25.01) software that are linked
to an AMI jukebox may be affected.
Symptoms:
The local music catalog will not appear. All album jackets in the local
catalog will appear as Music On Demand.
Solution:
There are three options to receive the catalog after installing the 2008.5
software update:
Option 1: If you used the broadband software download, your game will
download the local catalog automatically during the next call into the
server.
Option 2: Before going to the game location, download the latest AMI
catalog from our Web site (www.meritgames.com/amidatabase.asp).
Follow the online instructions to copy the catalog onto a USB pen or
disc. After installing the 2008.5 software update, install the AMI catalog
via disc or USB pen.
Option 3: The game will also download the latest catalog automatically,
but you will have to clear the current catalog from the machine first. To
do this, press the setup button to enter operator setup. Then touch
System, AMI Setup, and then Clear Info. Touch the box next to
Catalog to clear the catalog and then touch Yes. Confirm that you want
to continue by touching Yes again. When complete, the game will return
to the AMI Setup Screen. Touch Connect on this page to start the
download process. This process could take anywhere from 30-90
minutes. If time is a factor for you, we recommend using option #2 to
install the music catalog.

Issue:
Several errors have been reported in TouchTunes software when their
jukeboxes are connected to Merit games.
Games affected:
Merit games linked to TouchTunes digital jukeboxes using certain
versions of TouchTunes Gen 2 and Gen 3 software.
Symptom 1:
Gen 3 Software
Song purchases from a Merit game to a TouchTunes jukebox running
Gen 3 Software (release 3.3.1-84) can cause an error in the number of
Merit credits used, regardless of the number of credits configured on the
Merit game. This error will charge only one credit no matter how the
system is configured.
To resolve this issue: Upgrade your TouchTunes Jukebox Software to
version 3.4.5-33.
Symptom 2:
Gen 2 Software
On TouchTunes Gen 2 Software (release 2.8.2-x), about 2.5 hours after
a jukebox reboot, the Merit game will no longer be able to communicate
with the jukebox (though the jukebox buttons will still be visible on your
Merit game). Rebooting the jukebox will solve the problem temporarily,
but it should not be considered a fix.
To resolve this issue: Upgrade your TouchTunes Jukebox Software to
version 2.8.2-30. This release and all subsequent builds will have a fix
for this issue incorporated into it.
Symptom 3:
Gen 2 Software
On TouchTunes jukeboxes running Gen 2 Software (release 2.8.2-12), if

Issue:
Occasionally some coins fail to be accepted into the mouth of the coin
box inside coin & bill Aurora systems. These coins can slide into the
interior of the system and/or get lodged in or under the motherboard.
Games Affected:
Some coin & bill Auroras built before June 17, 2008. The first six digits of
the game’s serial number indicate the date of manufacture.
Symptoms:
Coins are found loose inside the game cabinet. These coins can also
slide down to (and under) the motherboard, which can cause
functionality issues in the game.
Solution:
There is a new wide-mouth coin box now available for coin & bill Aurora
systems. This coin box (MP0117-01) is available free from your
distributor for any coin & bill Aurora made before June 17, 2008. All
Auroras made after that date will have the new coin boxes already in
place.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
215-826-1400 or 1-800-523-2760 or by E-mail: TechCenter@meritgames.com.

Re: Force & Ion 2009 Incompatibility
All of the advancements in Merit’s Ion 2009 platform have moved this software release outside of the
technological window of Force systems. Due to this, 2009 Ion and Force software will not be
interchangeable. Force software will only work on Force machines, while Ion software will only work on
Ion machines. This also means that Ion hard drives and Ion installation discs will work only on Ion
systems. The same holds true for Force hard drives and Force installation discs, as they will only work on
Force systems.
Merit still maintains its solid commitment to its Force platform. This change is due to Ion technology
advancing to the point that it surpassed the capacity of the older system.
If you have any questions please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
800-523-2760 or 215-826-1400, or by e-mail at TechCenter@meritgames.com.

Issue:
Under certain limited conditions, a bookkeeping error may occur that
causes a Megatouch-connected TouchTunes jukebox to record double
the correct amount of money in its bookkeeping functions for remote
jukebox plays.
Games Affected:
This issue has been reported where U.S. version Megatouch systems
are connected via Gamelink to TouchTunes jukeboxes, and where
BOTH of the following conditions exist:
1) The Quick Price Setup feature on the Megatouch is being used.
-AND2) The selected setup is “4 credits for $1”.
Symptoms:
To determine if your system is affected, please conduct the following
procedure:
1) Enter the Operator Setup on the Megatouch.
2) Touch Credits/Pricing.
3) Touch Quick Price Setup.
4) Touch 4 Credits for $1.00 (see Figure 1).
SELECT
“4 Credits for $1.00”
FIGURE 1 – QUICK PRICE SETUP
5) Touch Main Menu at the top-center of the screen.

8) At the jukebox, activate the Operator menu and navigate to the
Money Æ Bookkeeping menu.
9) Record the “Linked Coinage” value displayed (see Figure 2).
FIGURE 2 – TOUCHTUNES BOOKKEEPING MENU
10) Initiate a remote play from the Megatouch. If your system is affected,
Linked Coinage for the remote play will be double the correct amount
on the jukebox’s Bookkeeping screen.
Solution:
This issue will cease to occur when the credit settings are configured
manually on the Megatouch. To do so, please follow these steps:
1) Enter Operator Setup on the Megatouch.
2) Touch Credits/Pricing.
3) Touch Coin-In.
4) Manually configure your credit settings.
5) Touch Main Menu at the top-center of the screen.
6) Touch TouchTunes.
7) Set “Merit Credits per Song” to any desired value.
8) To verify the success of this process, initiate a remote play from the
Megatouch. If this procedure has been successful, coinage for a
linked play will be recorded correctly on the jukebox’s Bookkeeping
screen – i.e. the value specified on the Merit “Value of Credit” menu.
NOTES:
If the Coin-In table is set up for bonus credits, the TouchTunes unit selects the most expensive
credits to use.
- Wireless linking of Megatouch systems and TouchTunes jukeboxes is not supported.

Issue:
There are certain conditions that can lead to touchscreen calibration
issues in Ion systems. Please see Symptoms.
Games affected:
Certain Ion systems running software versions 2007 (V22) through
2008.5 (V25), as well as systems running operator-installed 2009
software. Please note that games manufactured with 2009 software
will have this patch already incorporated, so this issue will not affect
these systems. This patch will NOT work with 2009 Beta software.
Additionally, this patch will only work on systems with touchscreen
controller versions 3.0 through 4.1. To check your version number, press
the Setup button to enter Operator Setup, then press Diagnostics, then
press System Info. The version number will be displayed under the
heading “TouchScreen”.
Symptoms:
Your Ion system is having the following calibration issues, which can be
resolved by power cycling:
-
Solution:
the touchscreen is responding while there is no one touching the
screen
the touchscreen appears to be locked up, but the LED on the
touchscreen controller will be illuminated as if the screen is being
touched
the game’s calibration is drastically off
If your system is experiencing the above calibration issues, Merit is
providing a FREE OF CHARGE Touchscreen Controller Firmware
Update on USB pen (part number: SB0555-01), which addresses these
potential issues and can be ordered from your distributor.
PLEASE NOTE: IF POWER IS INTERRUPTED DURING INSTALLATION IT CAN DAMAGE THE
TOUCHSCREEN CONTROLLER. PLEASE MAKE EVERY EFFORT TO ENSURE THAT THIS
DOES NOT HAPPEN DURING INSTALLATION.
To Update Via USB Pen:
1. Turn off the game.
2. Gently slide the provided USB pen into the USB port on your system (for details on locating the
USB port on your Megatouch, please refer to your Owner’s Manual).
3. Turn on the game. The update will automatically download. This will take approximately 5
minutes.
4. When the update is complete, the message “Update Complete Touchscreen firmware is now
revision 4.40” will appear on the screen. Turn off your system, remove the USB pen, then turn
your system back on.
5. After the system reboots, you should perform a touchscreen calibration. Press the Setup button
to enter Operator Setup, then touch Diagnostics, followed by Touchscreen Calibration. Follow
the on-screen instructions to calibrate.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at

Issue:
On 2009.02 (V29.10) software, the games Luxor and Luxor: Survival
have been experiencing loading problems.
Games Affected:
Both Ion and Force 2009.02 (V29.10) software. Note: If your system is
running V29.11 you will not experience this issue.
Symptoms:
When the 1-player button is pressed to start either Luxor or Luxor:
Survival, the game attempts to load but fails to do so. The system does
not crash, it remains on the game selection screen, and player credits
are used.
Solution:
Merit is issuing a free patch that will automatically install on all MegaNetconnected Megatouch systems. If you have a non-connected machine,
the patch can be installed via USB pen. This patch (and instructions for
USB installation) are located on Merit’s Web site
http://www.meritgames.com/luxor.asp. The patch should be downloaded
from the Web site to your computer, then uploaded to a USB pen for
transfer to the Megatouch. This patch will update the software on the
system to V29.12.
If you do not have a computer to download the USB patch, and if your
games are not MegaNet-connected, this issue can also be remedied by
disc(s). Contact Merit Customer Service or your distributor for this
update (part number SB0612-01). The disc(s) will update your system to
V29.11. For disc installation instructions, please see the reverse of this
field bulletin.
Please note: There is no difference in V29.11 and V29.12 software
other than the installation method, so if your Megatouch is already
running V29.11, there is no need to address this issue.

To Update Via Disc
Connecting a DVD Drive
1. Turn off the game.
2. Connect the 2 x 20-pin IDE connector to the IDE interface connector on the DVD drive. Make sure
the red stripe on the ribbon cable matches up with pin 1 on the IDE interface connector.
3. Connect the four 4-pin power connector on the ribbon cable to the DC power input on the DVD drive.
4. Connect the centronics connector on the ribbon cable to the centronics connector on the game. (If
you need further instructions in doing this, please refer to your Owner’s Manual.) NOTE: When
positioning your DVD drive, it is important that you find a suitable place where the DVD drive
will not be in danger of coming in contact with any components or wires inside of the game.
Program Installation
Performing this upgrade will delete previous information and files on your hard drive. If you want
to retain any pertinent information (ex: Books Screen information), you will need to document that
information before performing the upgrade.
The update process could take from 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the speed of your DVD drive.
5. If you are connected to TournaMAXX or TournaCHAMP, you must perform an Update From Server
before beginning this installation so that no information is deleted.
6. For Force Games: Insert the Force Disc into the drive. If you don't get the disc into the drive before
the game starts to boot-up, turn off the game and turn it back on.
For Ion Games: Insert Ion Disc 1 into the drive. If you don’t get the disc into the drive before the game
starts to boot-up, turn off the game and turn it back on.
7. The message “By continuing with this installation program, you indicate that you accept the
terms of Merit’s software license agreement” will appear on the screen. If you accept the terms,
select Yes, I agree.
8. For Force Games: Skip to step 9.
For Ion Games: When the first disc is finished installing, the message: "Please replace the current
disc with disc #2 then close the door to continue" will appear on the screen. Remove the first
disc, insert the disc labeled Disc 2 and close the door.
9. When the installation is complete, the screen will display the message “Installation Complete!
Please remove the disc and Reboot.”
10. Remove the disc and turn off power to the game.
11. Carefully disconnect the ribbon cable from the centronics connector on the game. Be sure to grasp
the connector and not the cable itself.
12. Turn on the game. When the game boots up, you will be prompted to calibrate the game. Follow the
instructions on the screen.
13. If you are connected to TournaMAXX or TournaCHAMP, you must perform an Update From Server.
You will have to re-enter the dial-in settings first. Refer to the MegaNet manual for instructions.
If you have any questions, please contact Merit Customer Service and Technical Support by phone at
