I got a picture in a book, but it just has 6 functions on it. Maybe that's good enough, but I've seen the ATM's with a few more functions.
Currently I'm learning what all these functions mean.

I know this one: お金を引き出す (おかねをひきだす)  withdraw money


Does this one 記帳 きちょう Is this the one you stick your bank book in to get an update on your account?

Banks are so uptight I couldn'y imagine them allowing that on the machine....but I googled and apparently you can. It may depend on the bank, though.

SMBC, for example, says to look for 暗証番号変更 or 各種サービス

Get a teller to help you do this. You don't want to take a chance messing this up. This is one of those few things in life here you don't want to use as a learning experience.

Thanks, Mike.
I'll take your advice on this one. I know Yamaguchi bank allows it, others I don't know.

I can't even remember the last time I used an ATM.

I wouldn't be surprised if you can only do it on ATMs belonging to the same bank as the account you want changed.

I'm curious if there's a particular reason for this? My mother takes a strange kind of pride in "never having used an ATM" but she is often paid in cash and anyway you can pay for pretty much anything with a card in the UK. It seemed to me that it was not possible to pay by card in most small shops in Japan so it would be difficult to avoid ATMs (unless this has changed recently?)

Maybe his wife manages the cash flow. That's pretty common in Japan.
I just seldom have a need to have more than one or two thousand yen on me at a time. I work six days a week and am at home very little. My wife works three or four days a week and it just makes sense for her to have the cash card. I don't really have much chance or need to do any shopping while at work, with the exception of convenience stores. Most things I can't get at a convenience store I buy through Amazon and let the delivery man do the toting.
