Quiz Machine will not take coins.

This is one of the most common calls we receive after “not paying out”

Modern Quiz machines (SWPs) are computer based; nearly all of them run some form of Windows operating software, and just like your PC at home, they freeze up and stop responding.

The best solution to this is a simple.

 

  • Turn the power off
  • Count to 10
  • Turn the power back on.

 

This will fix most coin handling or frozen touch screen problems.

But if the problem reoccurs just give our service line (01299 827559) a call and one of our trained engineers will attend site.
