    Default Coin stuck in arcade coin slot.,

    I have an arkaniod arcade table top unit I just got off craigslist. It works great but it has 2 flaws, I seem to have gotten a quarter or 2 stuck in one coin slot. Is there an easy way to fix this without opening it up?

    Also one of the red lights on the coin eject is burnt out. Is this easy to fix as well without a lot of technical knowledge?
    Thanks

    Take something small and long, like a toothpick, to try and knock the coins loose. That's what I've had to do in an arcade once, when my quarter got jammed half-way through the slot and there wasn't any staff around to help.

    does the top not open? Honestly- if it does, it'd be a 2 second job to open up that coin mech. May save you some hassle.
