Question about Computers & Internet
There is a series of tasks, dependent upon what machine you have. When you find out what machine you have, click on my name, and then my message board.
This is how you can go through the MENU.
To enter the menu, there's a button combination. HERE'S THE ONLY THING YOU HAVE TO REALLY REMEMBER:
The buttons are numbered depending on how they are positioned. They will either be vertical (more likely), or in horizontal rows of 4 buttons per row. If it is vertical, the first button is #1, the one below it is #2, and so forth. If the buttons are in horizontal rows, the first button is #1, and the one to the right of it is #2. The numbers work like a type writer after that. In rows of 4, the first button of row 2 will be button #5. So, to review, getting in to the debug menu looks like this:
[ Coke ] <-- Hit this button last
[ Coke ] <-- Hit this button second
[ Diet Coke
] <-- Hit this button third
[ Sprite ] <-- Hit this button first
[ And so on ]
Some text should show up on the LED (probably the word "Error", we'll explain what it means next sections). If nothing happens, your machine doesn't have the debug menu.
To navigate from option to option (What they are is next section), remember the numberings we gave the buttons. They work as follows:
Button [ 1 ] - Exit/Back
Button [ 2 ] - Up
Button [ 3 ] - Down
Button [ 4 ] - Select
Depending on the age of the machine, you will get a varying amount of options.
On older machines: SALE, VER, EROR, and RTN
On newer machines: CASH, SALE, EROR, and RTN
The CASH option will display how much money is in the machine currently. It generally takes a second or two to load. From here, you can scroll up and down through 12 or 16 different options, depending on the machine age. These other options display how much money was spent on each individual item, classified through its button (or slot, as I like to call it) number.
A neat side note about the slot numbers is that there are more slot numbers than there are actual slot, so usually the last 4 buttons contain zero money. This could be so that the same OS could be used on bigger machines, but the newer machines have even more slot numbers.
The SALE option displays how many drinks have been sold out of the machine. This tends to be cumulative, but not on all machines. The stock guy is probably supposed to reset this each time he re-stocks. Also, this has the same sub-options as the CASH option, where you can scroll up and down and see how many drinks have been sold from each slot.
This option will cause a large alphanumeric string to scroll across the LCD. The number looks very much like a serial number, but doesn't vary from machine to machine. It is most likely the OS or machine version number, but of the older machines that have the option, I haven't seen one that doesn't have the same number.
The most mysterious of the options, the ERROR function will usually display the word "NONE" across the LCD. Almost all machines show NONE, but we came across one old one by a Food Lion that actually said something. This is an error log. If an internal error occurs, it will list it. So far, I know of "DOOR" and "STS" errors. If you get an error, you can select it, and it will clarify which part exactly had a problem, as in "STS002" or "STS005".
This is simply the return option. Selecting this will exit the debug menu. On newer machines, pressing the BACK button at the main menu will not exit, and RTN must be selected.
A side note: The menu can also be exited by pressing the coin return button.
By holding in the coin return button and not releasing, on the newer "big-button" machines, this will display the internal temperature in Fahrenheit, as in "42F".
This is of absolutely no use, as there is NO way to gain free drinks or money from this. "
The last part "There is absolutely no way to gain free drinks". Is mostly wrong, There is a way but 1 that would be completely illegal, and 2 if you want to risk it go to one of those sites like I-hack.com or astalavista.com. But I suggest not trying to do it. (The way isn't completely free, but you can change prices of the soda)

No. Cola and Pepsi, as well as their diet products contain a very low
amount of sodium. Regular Cola contains about 50 mg. of sodium. Diet Cola
contains only 30 mg of sodium per 8 oz. and Diet Pepsi only contains 25 mg. of sodium
per 8 oz.

Chemical hand warmers can cost anywhere from 50 cents to 6 dollars each. I prefer to buy the 50 cent ones since they only last for a few hours anyway.
