Q: How do I use the coin box to get more pages?

A: CQUEST has installed two coinbox mechanisms at the Ramsay Wright CQUEST site (Room 211) to allow CQUEST account holders to increase their print quota. The device ONLY accepts Two-Dollar coins("Toonies"). Other coins will jam the coin slot. If a coin gets stuck, you can push the Yellow button next to the coin slot to return the coin to the slot below. Operating instructions are posted by each coinbox mechanism.

Each "Toonie" will add 30 print units to your login.

"Black & White" page is 1 unit per printed side. The cost of a "Colour" page is 2 units (double the cost of Black & White printing). The Banner page is NOT charged.

Here's the Simplified Instructions.
  1. Have your coin(s) ready. DO NOT Deposit coins UNTIL prompted!
  2. Enter your CQUEST login name on the terminal and press the return key to verify your CQUEST account. (Do not use the arrow keys or the backspace key if you make a typing mistake. Just press the return key and let the display return to the initial prompt to enter your CQUEST login.)
  3. Your present quota will be displayed, then you will be prompted to start depositing the two dollar coins into the coin slot. You will have about twenty seconds to deposit your coin(s). Each accepted coin adds 30 print units to your print quota. (After each coin is deposited, the display will update how many coins you have deposited.)
  4. After depositing your coins, the terminal will update your print quota on CQUEST and display the new quota. The transaction is complete when the displays the CQUEST login id prompt.

If you have problems adding pages, send e-mail to userhelp@cquest. Please include your login id, the date, the time and which coinbox you deposited the coin(s).
