Hacking Coca-Cola Machines

I wonder how many Coke machines can be compromised using this simple technique? Performing these actions are illegal so act accordingly…

    Uhm. This doesn’t “compromise” coke machines. Pretty much every coke machine menu can be accessed with the 4231 code, and there’s a reason that Coke hasn’t changed it for a long time: it’s harmless. You can’t actually do anything with the menu that you get, other than checking how many cokes are in the machine, how much money is in there, etc. You can’t get money from it, and you can’t get free cokes. Those options are only accessable from inside the coke machine, which, of course, you need a key to get into.

    Thanks for the info Exton.

  3. n3rd Says:

    Do you guys actually verify something before you add it? You got people all excited over nothing… Just a stupid menu.. :/

  4. ingmar Says:

    That isn’t true, i’ve read something about this a wile ago.
    4231 is the standard code, but the owner can change it!, so it doesn’t always work.
    With some machines, the with a larger screen you can change the prices!, you can’t change it to 0, but you can make it 0.01 :P
    I’ve tried it on school, and it worked!!

    Sometimes you can hold the button and the cans wil roll out..!

  5. dizle Says:

    I remember there was a coke machine when i was in college that would give btw 4 and 8 cokes at a time if you held down the dr peper button…probably just a bad catch inside…

  6. human V2.0 Says:

    As far I rememeber, it was a time when, money in, you could push VERY fast and a lot of time 2 differents button, each given the can it was designed. Doesn’t work on recent machines but some old ones are always available.

  7. Eagle Says:

    i just went to the cock mashine and tried the 4231 code.
    and it worked but it was showing only 4 options “Error”-”Cash”-”return”-”sale”. i tried 4 and it shows the same options.
    now how can i hack to get cheap coke??….

  8. n3rd Says:

    the cock machine? twisted little perv… :p

    I hear a lot of “used tos” and “older”. Nothing new????

  9. W. Kensington Says:

    Hey ingmar,

    You have to get on the inside of the machine to change the price. That requires a key
    . Trust me, if it was in any way possible to change the price, the Coca Cola company
    would be out a lot of money right now. More info on the exact model of machine you
    claim can give out reduced price Cokes.

  10. keyholder Says:

    Well, in my school i know a person that is assigned to refill some other vending machines, and he also has coke key !! so any1 kn,ow what to do when i’m inside so i can get free cokes without opening it (afther i hacked into it from internal)

  11. tim Says:

    http://techscoopnews.googlepages.com/ has an updated page that shows how to get inside access

  12. please help! Says:

  13. B-rad Says:

    chance try a pepsi machine or go to marvel vendors for the schematics nubes

  14. Majik Says:

    You’re not going to “screw with the menu?”

    Push the buttons you pussy!

    [...] Looks like the average joe can now read about Coke machine programing. Seems that the service manual is now readily available. When are companies going to learn to guard this material better? Go here to see a video of someone getting into the machine menu. [...]

  18. Joe NORmal Says:

    Information should be freely accessibly if it does not impede the company’s performance…… this is not hacking. it is merely looking at programming codes which will be available from any vendor upon request. Now, if you benefit from this information with no consideration for it, you should be in jail.

  19. Rob Swift Says:

    At my old High School only about 5 people, i knew em all, knew how to get free cokes from the machine. We just held down the selection that someone had just bought and 1-2 cokes would come rolling out. Sometimes you would have to press it repetedly.

  20. Tim Says:

    New site at http://www.techscoopnews.com, this has the guy who found the manual for the vending machines

  21. David Says:

    Hey guys why dont you just buy a Coke Machine key of e-bay that way you an open the door and mess aroud inside the machine !

    You did not “hack” – you cracked.

  24. GAYLORD FOCKER Says:

    Wow! OMFG! As if I didn’t know that….why didn;t he pour acid into the return slot or something…now thats a good video to see

  25. mroblivious1bmf Says:

    i think he should piss in the coin slot on a cold day.
    then it will explode,and coke bottles and money will just fly out.

    i read about it in the anarchist’s cookbook, so it must be real.

  26. jjtw Says:

    I own vending machines… All that screen is describing is the total sales on the machine, you can even scroll through to see how many each line item sold. You cannot get a free soda or screw the programming!

  27. rd Says:

    You can use 4231 to reduce price by doing the following:

    Press 4231
    Press 2
    Press 4
    Press 4 (again)
    Press 4 (again)
    Press 2
    Press 3
    Press 2 (again)
    Use 1 to increase price, 2 to decrease price
    Press 4
    Press 4 (again)
    Press 4 (again)
    Press 4 (again)
    Press the coin return to put the machine back in NOCP (Normal Operating Control Process)

    see the googlepages site for the content, the new site is now a guide on how to get anything for free

    Hi.

    It can be simplier than all this hackin’.
    mayb u might know these neodymium magnets.
    These magnets can be so strong that u might be able to activate
    the relays in the cola-machine. So it is possible to manipulate the
    relay which operates a slot where a can is provided.
    mayb it can be possible to activate the contact(s) in the
    coin-slot to “tell” the machine that a coin was inserted which is
    then actually not the case…

    Electronic and esp. electromechanic circuits and components can
    be manipulated in sometimes very easy ways.

    @home i can persuade my microwave oven to operate with an open
    door
    by manipulating the relevant relay with that kind of magnet
    even thru the ferrous metal case.

  41. dark_blade Says:

    I think the firmware is updated, maybe you should descover a new code

  42. kaz Says:

    get all the money from a cock machin by pressing 432112311

  43. Lickstaph Says:

    social engeneering is much more efficient and effective. tell the store owner that you put in the correct amount of money, you heard some noises inside, but nothing came up. he will put in a code for a free coke. if you can, try to look at the code and remember it.

    however if you just want to hack, press 4231 and 35 to change the price.

  45. Haseeb A Says:

    do they still work???

    sad we dont have any vending machines in our country!!
    maybe cause people dont use codes.. they just break the machines and take everything

  46. Loggy Says:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bUuST6GXvRE

    A dude actually putting in code into a machine and making lots of change come out!

    I have tried this at the local gym’s machine and it worked! The sound of all those coins rushing out certainly drew a lot of attention though.. :-S

  47. haha Says:

    haha, super cool how people continue it, but wh would anyone want to hack, just buy the coke!

  48. junkman Says:

    havent tried coke machines but am willing to swap info on new pepsi machines machines with those who arent full of it

  49. adder Says:

    if you really want a free coke & the cash iside the machine just use a pry bar or a hammer & screw driver. Its far less trouble!

    Actually, in Gradius V that will kill you. No seriously. Unless you do it right you will die. Just like playing Slot Machine with a Coca Cola Product.

  51. Jonny Says:

    Actually you only need to press the “select” Button when you want to switch to two player mode.

    Spot on with this write-up, I actually think this web site needs way more consideration. I’ll probably be again to read rather more, thanks for that info.
