    Hello All,

    I am looking to find the 5"white ribbon in the pictures below. I have been unable to find any location on-line where I can purchase this replacement ribbon. If you look closely in the second picture you can see where the ribbon has a small tear in it and I believe this is my issue as to why the ae2451 does not work. Do any of the fellow operators have any lead on where I can find a replacement ribbon? It would be greatly appreciated.

    Loren

    Buy a junker off of Ebay and strip it for parts ?

    Definitely thinking about doing that Lloyd. I wanted to ask if any other Op's around have a good parts place for these acceptors.

    Searching, all I found was repair places. Didn't seem like any sell parts.

    I was having the same problem. Found one place that sold about 15 parts, but not the one I need of course

    HOLY COW, I did look at capital vending and must have missed that. THANK YOU sooooo much, I will be buying that.

    If you can't find something in normal searching, try something not normal. For instance :

    Google - MEI Mars Ribbon Cable - then scroll through Images. You find an image, see where it leads you.
