i have a Merit Megatouch Sapphire that i replaced a DBA in and have a stupid
question about!

it is a 2511 U3 VN with a jumper to take new $5 and for amusement acceptance
which i already have in another Touchmaster touchscreen that works fine. my
question is probably easy but i am having troubles with making the $1 give 4
credits and same with $5 giving the correct 20 credits(now gives $1=1cr and
$5=5cr). menus option somewhere i'm missing????

is there an easy solution for my problem? i have went through the menus
several times but can't figure out what i need to do!!!

TIA,
Kelly

The VN was designed for the Vending machines (not amusement machines) That
is why you have to use the jumper. Now as for the pulses per dollar. The
AE validator has a switch setting for pulses per dollar, the VN does not.
The VN standard settings are 1 pulse per dollar.
The only way to change it is to "coupon config" the validator. The coupon
is found in the instal guide if you still have it and you just fill out the
boxes with a #2 pencil. If you don't have it call 800-345-8172 during the
week and press the buttons for Tech support. They should be able to fax out
a coupon to you.

Important, the AE and VN coupons are different, make sure you get the VN
one.

Those are the right settings. If you have ANY dip switches in the ON
position it will override the coupon config. Basicly when you use the
coupon you are re-configuring the "default" settings in the BV.

So, put all switches to the OFF position, press the blue button on the back
of the bv and insert the coupon.
The BV should return the coupon immediately and the LED should flash 10
times.
IF the BV holds the coupon for 10 seconds and then returns it the LED will
flash the number of times to correspond to the section of the coupon that is
incorrect. (eg 5 flashes indicates a problem with the bezel lights section)

Hope this helps.

i've been there already(did exactly what you suggested) and did that a first
before messing with the dips.

i thought i might have one setting incorrect but if this is the right
settings then what else could it be??

thanks for the info,
Kelly

Were the settings accepted ? (eg it returned the coupon immediately and
flashed 10 times) ?

i got it. apparently when i did the coupon trick it was not plugged into
the touchscreen itself but did this at the MEI distributors office. then, i
switched the dips around thinking "this will make double sure that it works
correctly"!

i did it again while in touchscreen and left dips alone(all OFF) and
credited up fine!

i just thought i needed dips set also i guess!

thanks for the help Felix,
Kelly
