YTo me as electrical engineer it's a lesson that no technology is perfect, but we are working on it. Chocolate coin proof coin-star machines are just around the corner. - e-inspired 184.108.40.206 15:36, 27 February 2013 (UTC)
Candies do have monetary value. You buy them. 220.127.116.11 09:25, 22 May 2014 (UTC)

To be fair, Coinstar doesn't do so hot with regular coins- though that has more to do with the habits of the coin owners. 18.104.22.168 14:13, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Moderatly certain this had nothing to do with any anti-theft system, just a standard error beep that pretty much all machines with hardware for beep codes give. One long beep being the typical obvious error message, that doesn't tell you crap about what the actual error is (might be followed up with a beep code). Unless coinstar machines give just one loud long beep if you trigger the anti-theft mechanism.
