    I'd suspect your bill validator is in need of a rebuild or replacement. Lots of folks upgrade their machines to the much more robust MEI bill validators when the stock Rowe validators become unreliable. I upgraded my machines to MEI validators using a kit form Vendors Exchange.

    I have a couple of Rowe bill acceptors available for sale that would be good back-ups.

    Have you turned it off, let it sit for 5 minutes and reprogrammed the computer board?
    One upgrade to the MEI (Mars) is a complete conversion kit that replaces the computer and the validator. I paid distributor cost of about $900.00 for the entire kit with a new validator. You only retain the Rowe hoppers. There are partial upgrades available which continue to use the existing computer board, but I always bought the complete kit because I also had numerous times I needed to reprogram the Rowe computer when it lost memory.  Google search to find who sells the various types of upgrades which should be mostly vending suppliers.
