The best way is to open the door to the machine and follow the instructions printed on the label.

 

If you cannot read the label google “Royal vendors G3 manual”

If it's the same as a GIII then you'll need to go into the programming.  First you'll need to get past the password which for Coke is usually 4231 and then hit 4 to enter. At this point you should be able to scroll through the menu - 2 scrolls up and 3 scrolls down.  Just remember to hit 4 (the enter button) each time you reach your destination.

 

Ps Intellivend 2000 is just a Coke overlay and has nothing to do with the machine model (you'll even see this on some Coke Dixies)

The 552 is not a G3 machine, it's a Merlin 2000 machine.  To access pricing with a Merlin 2000 board you must locate the door switch to the right of the delivery chute and the mode button on the logic board.  You will first press the mode button 2 times to get to dt (test vend) on your display.  Then while dt is shown you need to HOLD the door switch in while pressing the mode button one more time.  This should put you in the SP (set price) mode.  After getting to SP you then press any selection you wish to change.  The first press will show the current price and then begin raising it.  Releasing the button and pressing it again will lower the price.  Once you have the price you want, it will automagically be saved for you and you can then change another price if needed.  Pressing the door switch or closing the door will put you back in the vend mode and you can then check your prices.  

 

Now you also mentioned that you have a Coke door with 7 buttons and 8 columns but the Merlin 2000 programming should still be the same as described above.  It wasn't until Royal produced the Merlin III that they incorporated more elaborate programming for Pepsi/Generic machines and Coke machines.

Your programming probably requires you to enter a password to get to the price setting since it's a Coke door.  You will have to press the mode button which begins with Error on the display, then you will press select button 2 to scroll down through the menus looking for Pric to show on the display.  If you don't see that then it's password protected so you want to scroll to PASS.  At PASS you will press two possible button combinations in this order:  From PASS press 4, 2, 3, 1 and then 4 again.  If you see anything other than PASS or a blank screen then that was successful.  If you only see PASS or a blank screen then you need this combination:  From PASS press 4, 4, 2, 3, 1.  One of these combinations will get you to the secondary menu.  At that time you will press button 2 to scroll to Pric.  At Pric you will press button 4 to enter that menu item and use button 2 and 3 to scroll up and down through your selection numbers.  If your first press of the #2 button shows ALL on the display and you want to price all selections at the same price then you can press button 4 to enter that option and then press buttons 2 and/or 3 to adjust the price to what you want everything to be priced at.  When finished you will press and hold button 4 for one second to save the pricing.  At that time close your door and begin confirming that the prices are all where you want them.  If you set all selections to the same price then your display will always show that price when idle. 

 

If you choose to set different prices with different selections then from Pric, press button 4 to enter that menu item and button 2 to bypass the ALL option and move to the selection button number you want to change.  When that selection number is on the display then press button 4 to enter it and use 2 and 3 to adjust that selection's price.  When the price is correct, press button 4 for one second to save it and the display should return to the selection number.  Now you can use button 2 to scroll to the next selection number you want to change and repeat this process until all are priced the way you want.  When done you can press and hold button 4 to save and back out all the way back to either RTN or maybe to zeros on your display, which will be all you see on the display when the machine has different prices in it and it is also idle.
