Sgolembiewski0903 Posted June 14, 2018 Share Posted June 14, 2018 Hi all! This is kind of a two part question... first part is something I've been wondering about for a long while, second is an issue I'm having! 1) I have like 6 bill acceptors in storage that all have all have different cords (i.e. some have several wires where some just have a few, some have wires going into __x__ position in the clip and others go into __X__ position on the clip... It just seems like there are a BUNCH of varieties of cords for these acceptors... can anyone make sense of them for me? Also, I would say the same thing for the oppositie end of the cords, the cords that actually plug into the acceptor... Some plug into the side-computer(?)-thing and some go right into the acceptor itself. I feel like a COMPLETE rookie with these things, the only thing I feel comfortable with is perfect fits, which seem hard to come by unless you're talking MDB cords! 2) I have a MARS Series 2000 on a an old DNCB single-price that today when I arrived on account seemed to be working fine. There were a few bills in the acceptor and the lights in front and the rear-led-light indiciated it was working fine. An employee came in and told me the acceptor wasn't taking his money... so lo-and-behold I tested it and it made noises but didn't take the bill. I then checked the rear-LED and it indicated a bill-jam. There was no bill-jam so I unplugged the machine, and then too out the mech and cleaned the sensors with water/rag. I turned the machine back on and the bill acceptor pretty much completely stopped working. There was no rear-LED light but 2 of the 4 red lights in the big diamond-shaped sensor on the bottom on the ramp would blink once every few seconds or so... And then the stacker moved and got stuck in the forward position, enough so that I couldn't put the casette back on... Never seen an issue like this. I tried another bill acceptor (one of the really old metal Mars acceptors), it was the only one I had with matching cords (thus my Question #1). The acceptor itself is kind of messed up so it doesn;t suck up bills but it did try, indiciating to me that the machine was able to get power to the test-acceptor... Any ideas on a fix? I'm wondering if 1) I could replace just the cord for the MArs2000 OR 2) Do I just need to replace the entire acceptor/have it serviced? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
