Hi, anyone know anything about Mars TRC 6000, it wont direct any coins into the tubes it goes directly to the drop box. It was working and no settings have been changed. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

It's the cylinoid that has gone bad more than likely. You have to either repair it or replace your whole coin mech. Cost around $80 to $100 for replacement coin mech and around $40 - $50 to repair.

It could also be that the changer thinks that the tubes are full, so it could be bad tube sensors or they may just need to be cleaned. Midtenn suggested this on one I had and it fixed it. In my case it was only doing it with the quarters not all the tubes, so C&J's suggestion is more likely in your case but you could try cleaning before spending the $$.

Thanks for the help I'll check the solenoid, I guess I need to find a back up coin mech to do repairs. Thanks again for your help. Is there a good place to get these parts? any suggestions?

TRY TUNING IT FIRST:




Preparing TRC Coin Changers
If you are using MEI's TRC6000, TRC6800, TRC6010XV or TRC6510, you can enable dollar coin acceptance by ensuring that Switch 3 is in the ON position. If you are using a TRC6200 or TRC6800 coin changer, you can enable dollar coin acceptance by placing Switch 1 in the ON position. Finally, you can enable dollar coin acceptance on MEI's TRC6512 coin changer by placing Switch 2 into the ON position.

After you are sure that dollar coin acceptance is enabled, drop a few dollar coins into the coin changer to see if the coins are accepted. Unless the dollar coin channel has been erased in the past or taught to accept other coins or tokens, the coin changer should accept dollar coins immediately. If the dollar coins are not accepted, you'll need to reteach the coin changer using the following procedure:

If teaching is required, follow these steps before beginning the actual teaching procedure:

Interrupt power to the changer by removing the changer Power Plug.
Lower the Acceptor / Gate Assembly
Set the changer option switches as follows:
Short the two teaching pins (upper set of pins on TRC6800) by touching both simultaneously with the tip of a conductive screwdriver.
With the screwdriver still touching the teaching pins, re-instate power to the changer.
Remove the screwdriver.
Press the Acceptor / Gate Assembly back into position until the spring clips engage.
The changer is now in the Teaching Mode.
In Teaching Mode, the changer can be taught to recognize a set of coins. These coins are placed into eight (8) different teaching locations - ten (10) teaching locations on TRC6510 and TRC6512 coin changers - two locations per each denomination coin (nickel, dime, quarter, dollar, two tokens for TRC6510 and TRC6512). Depressing the coin return lever during the teaching procedure skips a teaching location.

After you've placed the coin changer in teaching mode, follow the following procedure to teach the coin changer to accept the coins you need:

Insert (1) U.S. nickel; it will be rejected.
Insert second U.S. nickel; it will be rejected.
Insert (1) U.S. dime; it will be rejected.
Insert second U.S. dime; it will be rejected.
Insert (1) U.S. quarter; it will be rejected.
Insert second U.S. quarter; it will be rejected.
Insert (1) dollar coin; it will be rejected.
Insert second dollar coin; it will be rejected.
After teaching, the changer switches to a calibration mode. This mode serves as a fine-tuning function. To calibrate, insert 20 coins of each denomination (following the teaching order) into the changer. Acceptance may be poor at first. However, it will improve with the number of coins inserted.
