How to turn your Terminal on and off

How to turn your Verifone EFTPOS terminal on and off

Android terminals

Once your charging base is set up, placing the terminal on it will power the terminal on. You can also turn the device on by pressing the power button on the side of the terminal.

To power off or restart your terminal, press and hold the Power button for 1 second and then tap Power off or Restart. You will need to remove the terminal from the base first, if you have one, to turn it off.

VX 680 & VX 690

If you have a mobile terminal (VX 680 or VX 690) take the device off the charging base, or unplug the charging cable, and then hold down the red X key until the device shuts down. While you're holding the red X key the terminal will continually beep until it shuts down.

CAUTION: Do not remove the battery to power the terminal off unless advised by us as this may damage your terminal. To power a mobile terminal back on, hold down the green Enter key or place the terminal back on the charging base.

V240m and V210

Connect the terminal to a power supply OR press and hold the ENTER key until the display turns on. 
Enter key:Confirm

NOTE: The battery charge level needs to be high enough for the terminal to turn on.

To turn the terminal off press and hold the Cancel key (5 - 20 seconds) until the display turns off.

Cancel key: Cancel

VX 820 Duet or VX 520 Colour

You can either unplug and then re-plug the power cord from the base, or switch the power off at the wall. Wait five seconds then switch it back on (be sure you get the correct switch!).

NOTE: When you turn your terminal on it will automatically configure itself and run through a ‘start-up test’ - this takes approximately 1 minute.
