    Hi everyone. I am brand new here. I have been working on and restoring antique radios and other electronics for many years. I have a Japanese Pachislo machine that I caused a short in while changing a light bulb. I traced some bad components in a power supply, and found two bad resistors and a bad diode. I would like to replace the bad components and hopefully get the game working.

    If any of you know about these machines, it's an Eleco Beast Sapp.

    Does anyone know what diode that might be? Is that a critical diode, or would something close work? For scale, that red pointer is a straw from contact cleaner spray.

    Take a magnifying glass and see if you can read any characters that might be inked onto the diode.

    I have not been able to see anything, but I plan to remove it for closer inspection.
