Remote credit setting
Credit may be purchased from Credifon, using the Credifon re-setting system, in units of £10, minimum £50.00, maximum £1000.00 or to a credit limit as agreed.
Check that the Telephone Cable is connected to the Telephone Socket at the rear of the machine and the other end to an adjacent telephone line outlet.
The machine only requires connection to the telephone line outlet during the re-credit transaction or when the message “INSP REQD” is displayed.
As a Credifon user you will have been issued with your own CREDIFON PIN, therefore to initiate a valid credit-resetting sequence, the correct PIN must be used.
1. From Ready Mode or ‘Inspection Due – Recredit’ screen, press the money bag button. The prompt to enter your CREDIFON PIN will be observed, please remember this is NOT the same as your User PIN.
2. Enter your CREDIFON PIN.
3. Using the numerical key pad, enter the credit amount you wish to purchase (e.g. £50). Press: 5 , 0 , and “OK” to confirm.
4. You will now be asked to verify the amount before proceeding.
• If amount is incorrect, press “ESC” and start again from the Enter Amount screen (step 2).
• If the amount displayed is correct, press “OK” to confirm.
5. On completion of recrediting, a RECREDIT DONE screen will be observed. Press “OK” to return to Ready Mode.
If an incorrect CREDIFON PIN was entered, the transaction will be aborted and a WRONG PIN screen will be observed. In this case, press “ESC” to return to Ready Mode, then wait for approximately two minutes before attempting to add credit, this time using the Correct CREDIFON PIN.
If for any other reason the re-credit transaction is aborted before the transfer has been completed, a RECREDIT FAILED MESSAGE will be observed.
Press “ESC” to return to Ready Mode, then wait for approximately two minutes before attempting to try again. If a re-credit transaction is aborted the value is automatically reset to that previously selected for any subsequent retry.
If recrediting satisfactory, press “OK” to return to Ready Mode
