    Default help with hopper ..

    Hi .. new to these machines .. i have an older big bang that has been modified to take quarters with a shim on the track .. i didn't do this , i got it this way .. i read about it and others have done it as well. my issues is that when the machine pays out it doesn't think the quarters are there. if the hopper is full of quarters it will empty them all into the tray and go into error mode. if its all tokens it counts them out perfect. if its a mix it will put extra quarters in with the token payout. any ideas how to change the hopper if its even possible ? ..


    i will get more info on the machine if needed.

    thanks for any insight!

    Obviously we don't recommend converting machines to accept currency (or discuss converting them) and doing so will often cause problems

    But are you saying the machine is working okay with tokens?

    Okay so your machine is working as designed then?

    It's playing with tokens and paying out tokens?

    sorry if I'm misunderstanding but I'm confused as to what you are asking, why do you need to change the hopper?

    sorry about that , new to these machines , didn't know that was law .. either way i fixed it! . it was easy .. theirs a bar that breaks a light beam and when the "other tokens" would go through it didn't push it over far enough .. i moved the mount holding the sensor over as far as i could and presto , it works .. easy peasy ..

    sorry again. thanks for the reply!
