Thank you, Bry. I set my connections up via this wiring diagram.

The video is linked below. I'm all out of options now. The green LED on the coin mech doesn't start flashing red until it is discovered by the coinkit software. I don't know if any experts can see something I'm missing. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for that, Bry.

Yes, it seems to be the correct one that I bought already, but there was 3 of them in the parcel. I'm wondering now if there was difference between the 3 as I just used a random one!

"XTVTX 3PCS PL2303HX USB to TTL Serial Converter´╝î USB to RS232 TTL Serial Adapter Converter 4 Pin Female Socket Compatible for Arduino Download Cable"

I'll take that video later as I passed out last night!

Whenever I hit a dead-end, the LED on the SR5i usually blinks from green to red - if that means anything? I'll upload a video of the "sequence of unfortunate events" before bed and post the link!

The operating system is Windows XP. Could the problems be down to the type of serial cable I've used? - Would there be a difference between a 2.0 and a 3.0 for instance? As Brian only stated it was a serial cable, I simply searched Amazon for something that looked similar with the same "ends" as which were shown on the video. It looked like one that was described as a TTL cable. I don't even know what TTL stands for, but that's the one I got. Money's no object, I'd just love to get this machine accepting coins.

Hi Steve,
I've been alternating between an SR5 and an SR5i. The SR5i has an LED which proves power is actually getting through.
I've been doing a little research and I've heard it could be down to the serial cable I've been using. Apparently an "ser2pt.sys" could work? - It just seems like one problem after another but I'm remaining persistent! The PC knows which port the coin mech is connected to, and the power light is on - that's keeping me optimistic!

What coin acceptor is it ? (model number) or picture of label...

I've finally got the PC online and managed to get the coinkit software up on the screen. I did splice through two of the wires coming from the PSU on the PC and the green light on the coin mech is on. I surprise myself sometimes!

I auto detected the COM port (currently it's showing on COM12 - but I have tried them all over the last hour) I then go to Diagnostic but there's "No reply, trying to reset coin acceptor" - I have a feeling I'm so close but desperately needing your expertise! Any help would be appreciated.
