    Exclamation Help Needed Please

    Hi everyone.

    I have a fat spanner quiz machine but the computer is gone and I have all my 1 coins still in it... I know you can empty the cash if the computer is running but how do I get it all out when the computer is knackered?

    Thanks for reading and any advice you may give.

    Lydney, forest of dean Gloucestershire.

    I probably sell the machine and I also have a crystal maze machine... works, it excepts money but doesn't pay out when you win.
    I have all the keys for both.

    I don't think people are being deliberately unhelpful but this Forum is mainly read by quiz machine players of various degrees of interest/age/dedication, as opposed to us being operators or owners of the actual machines, so most of us wouldn't have a clue where to start.

    Speaking thus as a non-expert, there seem to me to be two basic options:

    (1) Do the keys get you inside the cabinet to where the cash is kept? If so, just use them. However I assume they don't, otherwise why would you be asking?

    (2) If you don't have the right keys then you need to work out how to physically open it to retrieve the money while causing the least damage in the process.

    As a side issue, who are you hoping to sell it to when, as you say, the computer is gone? It's not going to be worth much to anyone if you can't demonstrate it is in working condition.

    Thanks Nils.

    I have all the keys but cant see a way of getting the money out without maybe doing damage.
    If the computer worked I know how to extract the cash.

    I need the room so will be getting rid of both my machines.

    you will need to remove the hopper, which is a cnut of a thing to do.

    whoever built these machines never bothered too much about service access.



    i take it your selling for parts anways, just remove what yiou need to gain access.
