Vending Machine Hack?



Has anyone ever tried this? I'm curious to see if it actually works. Well as you know, for whatever reason, Soda Machines and I suppose Vending machines in general, are getting more elaborate. You should see the ones in my school, once you make a selection, this loud, overally dramatic sound hums out and this big mechanical arm reaches up, takes your selection from the shelf and gingerly drops it in the receptacle. All these flashy doo-dads and crap require some sort of programming, meaning they, with the right amount of knowledge can be hacked. Let me preface this by saying, following this will lead to theft, it should be tried with just the advantage of knowledge and pure fun.

What you'll need:
Time
A Machine not out in the open
A bit of luck


Well like I said, I'm not sure if this will even work, it requires that the vending machine still be set on "default" mode. So I'm thinking that any high traffic area won't work. Like a vending machine inside a mall, or movie theater, or anything like that, probably will be changed out regularly, and the default setting probably taken off. So your probably better off trying this on a machine that's not visited so frequently. Once you locate a machine that seems to be out of the way of traffic, look at its number pad, or selection pad. Usually the numbers appear as they do on your keyboard's numpad. But in some cases of new machines, there are no numbers, but just big buttons with the drink on them. So instead of pressing F2 for a coke, you just press the big Coke button. These buttons are technically numbered as well, but its harder to tell how the numbers are ordered. Now according to this hack, if you press the buttons in a sequential order, a navigation menu will appear on one of the LCD screens. The number order is 4,2,3,1. Meaning you'd press those buttons in that order and you'd be taken to a menu screen. Like I said newer machines have those big square buttons but those too are assigned numbers, you just have to find out what number corresponds to what button. Usually the screens are pretty small, allowing only one line of text to appear at a time, so its good if you have no one in back of you waiting to use the machine. You have to scroll through all the options one by one. You'll see options for price changing, finding out how much money is in the machine currently, the version of the machines firmware, and some errors that the machine can run into (jammed, selection switched etc..) So yea this according to a few people can allow you to enter into any vending machine. Now as I said this won't work if the default password of 4,2,3,1 has bee changed. In which, you'll have to guess what password the machine is set too, which would be waaay to many combinations to just randomly guess. If your going to try this make sure no one's waiting in back of you, cause it'll probably take some time, and make sure the owner isn't around, or you'll have some explaining to do. And finally like I said, this may not even work! If anyone is willing to try it let me know, I'll try it on Friday when I'm at school. And I'll let you guys know how it turns out. If you've ever tried this, or heard about it, leave a comment to your findings!

  1. I used to hack the soda machine at my old work. It wasn't a new elaborate one though. Just look up the model number and you should be able to find the codes fairly easily.

  2. I've wanted to try this out but most soda machines are out in the open. That or I don't have enough balls to do it.

    ReplyDelete
  3. the codes usually work, but for a diagnostic menu. the rest is not easy to figure out and not worth the time...

    note, do NOT do this.
    a paper towel in the coin slot, wait, and use a lighter in said coin slot. change.

  6. I used to do this at my school. Though it only let me check the temperature of the drinks as well as absolutely nothing else.

  7. interesting topic!!
    at my school there were sensors in the bottom of the coke machine, so if you caught the coke before it hit the sensors (by holding the lil door shut with ur hand) u can get ur money back while holding the door shut so the coke doesnt hit the sensor.

    hope i was clear.

  20. I try some of this recently but non work but im sure to try the ones you blog about. Also in the past i remember i could just press the button many times really fast and it would give me 2 bottles but that was in 1998 must have been a bug.

  21. I luckily managed to find a coke machine left unlocked (as in the keyed push bar wasn't pushed in all the way) I simply unscrewed the front door and helped myself to the $20+ in change and a backpack full of coca-cola products....

  24. supposedly in old machines if you push 432112311 then hold down the change return for 5-6 seconds it will give you change.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I can get my self to the menu bar with the sales, Uers, and rtrn(return). But can't change the price I heard if you go to sales and pick the one you want by holding down that button you'd get a free pop but it didn't work for me

    ReplyDelete
  26. Any code that drops all the change is what I'll need to get my money back, from paying a lot on prize machines and not winning, or not getting back of who owes me, etc.!

  28. On the late 1970's/1980's maybe 1990's coke machines I learned in around 1992 to quickly press two buttons one after the other,has to be almost like you hit them at the same time. Every week I would do it and get 2 cans of coke product for 50 cent.

  29. As a vending machine owner you guys are just stealing...luckily I know that most of you "successful" people are just out and out lying or maybe the 60's & 70's were really good to you.
