    What if Something Goes Wrong?
    PROBLEM SOLUTION
    The machine won't accept your bill. Try another bill or machine, or try using coins.
    The machine gave you a receipt before you were finished. Put the additional money in and you will get an additional receipt. (To prevent problems from incomplete transactions, the machine automatically issues a receipt 40 seconds after money is entered.) Retain all receipts for proof of payment.
    If you have questions or need help. Call 301-925-9448.
