Troubleshooting and support

My terminal is not responding

Solution: Reboot the terminal. If the terminal is still not working as expected after reboot, contact our POS support team. They will work with you to solve the problem and, if necessary, will set up a replacement of the terminal. 

To reboot a wired terminal: Turn the device off and then on again.

To reboot wireless terminals: 

  • Make sure that the terminal is not charging 
  • Press the red button until the screen displays the message "shutting down". 
  • Press the green button for a short while until the terminal's display is active again.

The terminal shows a message indicating that no network is connected

Reconfigure the Wi-Fi connection as explained above in the configuration instructions.

You can also charge the device for several hours. If the battery is too low, the terminal will not connect to Wi-Fi. Connect the device to a power source to resume the network connection and try again after a few hours of charging.

The terminal does not boot up

Solution: Ensure that the power supply is plugged in, and charge the device for at least 30 minutes. If the device still does not boot up, contact our customer

The terminal does not show the normal idle screen with the company logo

Solution: Contact AnyRoad Customer Support

The terminal does not recognize payment cards

Solution: If payment cards are not recognized by the terminal, it's possible the system has lost its configuration. Re-board the terminal. 

The terminal does not charge

Solution: If a terminal does not charge, ensure it is connected to power and that the battery is correctly inserted into the device. If this does not resolve the issue, try to charge the terminal with another charger if available. If the terminal still does not charge, you will need to replace it.

The terminal is not connected to the Internet over Wi-Fi.

Solution: There are several possible causes and solutions for this issue:

  • Battery status - If the battery is too low, the terminal will not connect to Wi-Fi anymore. Connect the device to a power source to resume the network connection.
  • Changed settings - If you have changed settings on the Wi-Fi network, such as a change of password, this can result in a lost connection. To solve this issue, ensure credentials and settings are correct in the Network menu.        
  • Poor Signal - Network specialists should analyze the network range and try to improve it. If the problem is interference, switch to a 5ghz network 
  • Lost connection not picked up automatically - Attempt to connect manually using the network menu. If this does not work, it is likely that the software on the terminal is outdated. In order to prevent this issue, we recommend regular software updates.

The terminal boots up normally but transactions fail, and it is not possible to access the Internet on other Internet-connected devices such as a computer, POS systems, and so on.

Solution:  If there is an Internet issue, contact your IT department or your internal help desk for assistance.
