You will then be treated to a sequence of bloopers from the film.

It should change the symbols into a message saying "The future is not set" and the Terminators eyes will light up and a new entry will allow you to access the alternate ending. If nothing happens then try entering each number then pressing enter (i.e. Press 8, enter, 2, enter, 9, enter etc.) If you still cannot access this menu then play any version of the film and change the title to "3" and it will access the extended edition without using the menu.
