  1. DN 276 E

    I changed out the control board. At that point, the validator did not even try to accept the dollar bill. WHAT THE HE** !! What did I gain today? More knowledge, and extra control board and finding out that (two) recently rebuilt working validators are non-functioning. I decided to try a Coinco BA30B & BAM!! it worked. What a relief. Thanks for all the feed back. Respectfully, nrod7
  2. DN 276 E

    The harness I replaced was the Coinco bill validator to MDB power harness cable. The bill validator(s) did try to accept the bill. The led indicator on the validator was not flashing, but was on steadily. There is no card reader on this machine. I will completely fill the coin mech today. and check all connections. Thanks for the help. nrod7

    Thanks NYCandyman. Not going crazy yet. I did remember to fill the coin mech with change and product. Also changed the coin mech to validator harness. Respectfully, nrod7
  4. DN 276 E

    I am Working with a DN 276 E. Using Coinco mdb coin mech and Magpro 30. The unit will accept coins, but not dollar bills. I did Replace the Magpro 30 (bill validator) twice with bill validators out of working machines. I am certain that the bill validator is not the issue. I removed the control board cover. Both fuses are intact. However, under the fuses, I notice a small plug-in (light tan in color circuit/fuse?) that looked "burnt" Would a bad control board be the cause of the bill validator not accepting bills? What else should I check before. I replace the control board. If, I replace the control board, are there any special instructions to be aware of? Thanks, nrod7
  5. I pulled one of the columns/ selections that is set up to vend 20 oz. bottles of Gatorade. I was hoping that a Sam's warehouse brand of 20 oz. bottled waters would be the solution. I did notice that Sam's brand bottle is not made with the same quality plastic as the Gatorade bottle. The Sam's bottle kept jamming the rotor/cup. Any suggestions on a 16.9 oz bottled water that is compatible with this machine. The color of clip(s) and settings would also be appreciated. Respectfully, nrod7
  6. Will do. Thanks for the information. nrod7
  7. Not really important on why, but it sure seems strange. Strange that this machine has been on location for almost 3 years., and I have never had an issue locking or unlocking this machine. The last time I serviced the machine it was very difficult the lock the machine. 1. I did take the T-lock apart to stretch out the springs. 2. I pulled the "bracket nut"out of the bracket (mounted on the inside of the machine) to check if the threads might be bad on the stem or the nut. They both seemed O.K. 3. I made sure T-handle stem lined up to the bracket before closing the door, it seemed to catch at first, but ultimately the T-handle would not crank down in order to lock the machine. I had the leave the bracket loosened in order to lock the machine ( this unit has a T-handle lock cover). What could be the problem? Thanks, nrod7
  8. DN 276 E conversion

    Thanks for all the help. TVF is the Best!!! Respectfully, nrod7
  9. DN 276 E conversion

    I appreciate the help. Yes, I do have the harness hooked up. Thanks AngryChris. Your absolutely right Chard, I am trying to run a MDB coin mech with a 110v validator. I will check the pulse settings. Thanks AZ, If all fails I will use a Mars 24 volt validator. If any one can remember the exact setting I would really appreciate the info. Just glad the location is near my shop. Respectfully, nrod7
  10. Recurring problems with Dixie Narco 276 E in a dusty outside location ( dollar bill validator). Presently, working with a Coinco Mag 30 bill validator and a coinco mdb coin mech. I want to convert to Mars (110 volt) and keep the coinco mdb coin mech. The board is a SII D. I have bought the conversion harness from the board to the Mars validator. I removed the "Y" coin mech harness from the original setup. And then plugged the coin mech directly to the harness from the board. I am getting a "Coin mech disabled from validator" from the blinks off the Dollar bill validator. What do I need to check to resolve the problem? program issue? bad validator? Thanks, nrod7
  11. Vendo 475

    Replace only one part at a time. Have the validator rebuilt or replace with a working validator. Got it. Thanks AZ
  12. Vendo 475

    This machine has a Coinco Dollar bill validator BA30A and a Mars TRC 6800 H coin mech. The DBV is flashing blocked bill path. The Coin mech will not take change I have spare parts. I have also inserted both a DBV and a coin mech from a working machine, and then the working parts will not work. What else should I check on the Vendo 475? nrod7
  13. DN 368/8

    Thanks, I will check the setting in the programming. nrod7
  14. DN 368/8

    The machine has a 24 volt mars dollar validator ( 2500 series) and a Coinco mdb coin mech. Vend price is .75. If, I insert change the machine will dispense the product. with no issues. If, I insert 1 dollar bill the machine will dispense the product, but it will not drop the .25 cents in change. Also, the LED will reflect the .25 cents credit. if I push the coin return, then it will drop the change/credit. I have already swapped out the DBV, the coin mech, the harness and checked the three fuses on the mother board. I am stumped. nrod7
  15. Vendo 475 various issues

    This Vendo is a single price machine. Your clarification is noted and appreciated. I hope that will help with the other issues. Thanks, nrod7
