  1. Hello have a customer with a FSI 3076 Their old bill validator is a old conlux mB2-16a-400 27 volt. it is no longer taking bills but it is taking coins. There is an upgrade path from usi/vendnet for a coinco ba32f bill validator both 117 and 24 volt model (buying the data and power cable from USI/Vendnet) but the question is this, will a mei 24 or 117 volt validator work on this machine at all? Thanks for the help!
  2. Hello, so recently I bought myself a used old polyvend machine. I believe the model may be an R40, however I do know that it was made around 1995. I was able to successfully test all the motors and see them all work, the only issue I seem to be having is setting the price on the machine and with the bill acceptor. My machine does not have a coin acceptor, however I thought I could try to bypass this by placing it on force vend and only allowing bills to be accepted. The bill acceptor I have is a Coinco BA32SA. It blinks 5 times which indicates a bill jam, however there is no bill stuck upon checking. When I try to change the price on the machine, it will tell me that I have an Error code 3 which indicates the control board has lost communication with the changer. I was wondering if it would be okay to use the machine without a coin acceptor and how to get rid of these messages so that it may become functional.
  3. I just bought a Dixie-Narco DNCB 501T/MPC-8 for $150. The previous owner said the machine just stopped charging people for the soda, and dispensed them for free. But the first issue I’m having is that I can’t seem to go through the menu how I’d like, and it seems to do what it wants. After plugging he machine in the display screen started going up in .50 increments non stop up to $99 and then seems to go trough all the menu options for a bit before doing it all over again. I followed the instructions from another member of the forum who replied to a comment asking about how to operate and set the prices of this machine. (Link) https://des.az.gov/sites/default/files/media/dn_501_e_and_t_operators_manual.pdf After pressing 1&2 at the same time to try to get the menu to appear, the display seems to react as it stops going through menu options or increasing the price by .50 so fast but that’s all it does. It doesn’t seem to go through the menu when I hit the buttons but just slow or pause it for a couple seconds. But it did change the price a little as the display was increasing from $1 to $1.50 to $2 etc. But after messing with the buttons it’s now jumping from $1.14 to $1.64 to $2.14 etc. But I can’t seem to get the machine to react like this and change the prices again, unintentionally or not lol. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!
  4. For some reason my bill acceptor will only take one bill at a time (per purchase)? does anyone know of a setting or why this is happening? Example: If an item is $1.50 you can only put in one dollar bill and the rest has to be coins it won't take 2 one dollar bills.
  5. I replaced the bill acceptor with one I bought online. Still won't work. Am I missing something else?
  6. Good afternoon, I'm new to vending and was curious what bill acceptors could replace a mag32sa with the least extra parts required. The machine will be used mostly outdoors under cover and moved inside while not in use. I also need the new bill acceptor to take new 5$ bills and preferably be one with a high bill capacity of at least 500 bills. Some extra info about my machine: it is logic interface and currently uses a coinco 9302-LF coin changer with a 15 pin connection. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Patrick
  7. Hi, Has anyone ever added a MEI machine that takes credit cards on their Crane Machines? If so, can you explain how and what was needed to accomplish this. I currently have a MEI series 2000 and would love to put an MEI 4-1 instead. Thank you, cLAW
  8. I have an API SNACKSHOP 4000 with a bill acceptor I cant seem to get working. I've decided to buy a new one instead and I was wondering what model or makes will work with this machine? Im pretty new to these machines so sorry if this is a really basic question.
  9. Hi everyone! I'm a little new to this and I'm having trouble figuring out what's wrong. I have a Snack Shop 4000 machine with a Coin Co BA50B bill acceptor. The coin acceptor works perfectly but the bill acceptor won't take any bills and the red power/diagnostics light isn't on which makes me think it's not receiving power. I've attached a couple images of what I believe could be the problem. There is one broken wire but that seems to be connected to the coin acceptor and then there's a white pluggish type wire that can't reach the bill acceptor. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you for taking the time to read this.
  10. Greetings. I have done some searching on this site, and have not found any results on my topic, so I am hoping somebody can help. I am working on a Gaines VM750 vending machine, with an ICT P70 bill acceptor. The vending machine had this model of bill acceptor in it, but it has failed. I ordered a new P70 bill acceptor, but I cannot get it to function properly. I believe the issue is with the dip switch settings on the bill acceptor itself. I have the bill acceptor dip switches set to the defaults according to the instructions sent. When you put a bill in it, it takes the bill, but it does not count the money in the credit counter (pardon my terminology, I am new to this vending machine subject). If you put in coins, it counts the coins, but if you put in bills, it does not count the bills. I fear that the board that the bill acceptor plugs into may be malfunctioning as well, but I hope that is not the case. I have spent a few hours aimlessly searching the web for into on the Gaines Vending machine, but have had no luck...until I found this site. I would greatly appreciate any information. Thank you.
  11. Good morning guys. I am having an issue with one of my machines. So, I have replaced the Coinco Mag50B 3 times now in my machine. I am beginning to realize that it's not the bill acceptor that is the problem, but it must be the wiring? I get almost constant jams. So the question is. What could be happening? I notice that when I put a dollar in, it sounds very weak, almost like the acceptor is not getting enough power. I suck at fixing my own machines as I'm new to this, but constant jams are killing me slowly! I called the company where I bought it from, and they wanted me to test the power, but I am no electrician! Please help guys.. Hope everyone had a great new year!
  12. I have a back rubber on location. And the owner says that the bill validator acts up sometimes, and needs to be unplugged to work again. I have practically no knowledge of these machines. What should I check when I visit the machine to troubleshoot?
  13. I have a Coinco BAQ32R that is working fine but spontaneously decided to not accept fives, both old and new Ones still vend. I cleaned the lenses and checked the dip switches as set ok. Does anyone have such experience, and is there a cure other than replacement? Possible update reprogram?
  14. Hi. I would be greatly appreciated if someone can help me out. I have a ICT bill acceptor (V7E), coin acceptor (CC6100), and a small coffee vending machine from Korea (DSK-C10-FA). The coffee vending machine originally had a very simple coin mechanism without any change giving function, so it just get an 'ok' signal from coin mech. The coffee vending machine doesn't have a industrial standard VMC. I need to connect these up to make it into a proper 'vending' machine. I am thinking of using Arduino to act like a VMC. So the Arduino communicates with the bill/coin acceptors and after it's done its computations it send an 'ok' signal to the vending machine. So to sum it up, basically I need to connect the ICT bill acceptor (V7E) and coin changer (CC6100) to Arduino to coffee vending machine. example: bill/coin acceptor <-------> Arduino ---'ok'-------> Coffee vending machine Any thoughts, suggestions, tips and possible solutions would be greatly appreciated!
  15. Hey Guys, I have a couple ICT bill acceptors that are having trouble accepting bills. They only accept perfect dollars. In the past I have just bought new units but that gets expensive. Does anyone know what the most common issue is that causes that? I wanted to attempt to repair them myself. Thanks
  16. Looking for a Bill Acceptor / Recycler that is MDB compliant. What has your experience been with the various brands? Coinco, MEI etc Looking for reliability, value, service and support and any other info you may add. Thanks
  17. Does anyone have a coinco bill valitator compatability chart? They used to have something on their website but it's been taken down. Thanks
