    Payout machine help

    Hi. Picked this up at the recent Lloyd’s auction. The family love it, but it’s now displaying the “hopper Empty” message and is “suspended”. I assumed it was the rotating coin hopper so placed dollar coins there, but no luck.

    Any help appreciated, especially if anyone knows where I could source a manual.

    There is a password for these can't remember what it is off the top of my head. Don't know if it will be the same for that one but you have to go into the settings and set the float. If I remember I will see if I can find it tonight. It is something like "Technician 3.14159"

    Thanks for that. Yes, when you unlock the door it comes up with a Username then Password screen. I contacted the seller who said they never used either so didn't know what they were. Love to find out if I can change the settings.

    It’s a payout game machine. Has deal or no deal, monopoly, spot the difference and about 6 other games. Great fun.

    I checked the hopper and put coins in it. I don’t think that’s the problem. It’s “suspended” for some other reason.

    Not even sure who supplies these sadly so cont contact them. Inside looks like

    No idea why it has suddenly decided to be “suspended!

    Sometimes machines have a play counter that then trips them into a shutdown mode until a tech comes and resets it. For example, they might set that to 10,000 plays, once you play to 10,001, then turn the machine off, when it powers up again , you get a service message. this then forces the owner to get the service company out to check the machine and reset the play counter. Good luck getting a Username and password, could be incredibly tricky to fix.

    Sneaky tech stuff! The automatic shut down would make sense. It was working perfectly then just stopped.

    I’ll try that password stuff - the number you referred to is the serial number on the sticker?

    All else flails I’ll have to see if there is a poker machine tech or something to cal out .

    Thanks for the input
