Roll
A fast, quiet thermal printer is built into the Vx5xx/Vx6xx terminal. Before you can
process transactions that require a receipt or record, you must install a roll of
thermal-sensitive paper in the printer.
The ITP uses a roll of single-ply, thermal-sensitive paper 57 millimeters (2.24
inches) wide and 25 meters (82 feet) long. A pink out-of-paper indicator line
appears on the edge of the paper approximately 18 inches before the end of the
roll. After this line appears, there is enough paper remaining on the roll to
conclude at least one transaction.
CAUTION
Poor-quality paper can jam the printer and create excessive paper dust. To order
high-quality VeriFone paper, refer to Accessories and Documentation.
Store thermal paper in a dry, dark area. Handle thermal paper carefully: impact,
friction, temperature, humidity, and oils affect the color and storage
characteristics of the paper.

Smart Battery
NOTE
The Vx6xx wireless terminal uses an Li-ion smart battery (see Accessories and
Documentation for ordering information). The internal logic of the smart battery
prevents both overcharging and undercharging (a fault condition in which the
battery level goes well below the minimum acceptable charge and the battery
becomes unusable).
The Vx6xx terminal will operate on battery power or on power pack power. The
smart battery charger in the terminal will be active whenever the power pack is
connected.
The following are features of the smart battery:
•
Two Li-ion cells
•
A fuel gauge module that
•
•
monitors state of charge (voltage and current),
•
communicates with the terminal (charge parameters and status to indicate
full discharge),
•
determines full charge capacity (on charge cycle and uninterrupted
discharge cycle), and
•
automatically shuts down when cell voltage is extremely low.
A safety circuit that
•

TERMINAL S ETUP
Smart Battery
NOTE
•
activates when the battery is left in an unused terminal for extended
periods, and
•
resets when battery voltage reaches a preset threshold during the charge
cycle.
Conserve battery power by turning the Vx6xx terminal off when not in use. If the
terminal is not to be used for several days, remove the battery from the terminal
as it continues to discharge even when the terminal is turned off.
Installation The Vx6xx smart battery fits in a slot on the back of the Vx6xx terminal, as shown
in Figure 20. The locking tab clicks when the battery is in place. The slot is keyed,
so that there is only one way to insert the battery.

Charging After unpacking your Vx6xx terminal, install the battery and connect the power
pack to the unit for 6 hours.
It is also recommended that the smart battery receive a periodic full discharge. To
ensure a full discharge, use the unit until the battery is fully drained.
The smart battery has a safety circuit to protect the Li-ion cells from overcharging
and over-discharging. If the battery is over-discharged, the safety circuit shuts
down the battery. The battery must then be recharged to restore operation.

27
TERMINAL S ETUP
Install/Replace SIM Card (GSM/GPRS Models)
NOTE
The Vx6xx terminal automatically shuts off when the smart battery reaches the
critically low charge state. If this occurs, the smart battery must be recharged for a
minimum of 1/2 hour before it can power the terminal. It may take several
recharge attempts to reset the safety circuit when charging a smart battery that
has been discharged below this critical state.
Battery Life The Vx6xx smart battery can be charged and discharged hundreds of times, but
will eventually wear out. When operating times are noticeably shorter than usual,
it is time to buy a new battery (see Accessories and Documentation for ordering
information).

CHAPTER 6
Troubleshooting Guidelines
The troubleshooting guidelines provided in the following section are included to
assist you to successfully install and configure your Vx5xx/Vx6xx terminal. If you
have problems operating your Vx5xx/Vx6xx terminal, please read through these
troubleshooting examples.
If the problem persists even after performing the outlined guidelines or if the
problem is not described below, contact your local VeriFone representative for
assistance. Typical examples of malfunction you may encounter while operating
your Vx5xx/Vx6xx terminal and steps you can take to resolve them are listed.
NOTE
The Vx5xx/Vx6xx terminal comes equipped with tamper-evident labels. The
Vx5xx/Vx6xx contains no user serviceable parts. Do not, under any circumstance,
attempt to disassemble the terminal. Perform only those adjustments or repairs
specified in this guide. For all other services, contact your local VeriFone service
provider. Service conducted by parties other than authorized VeriFone
representatives may void any warranty.
CAUTION Use only a VeriFone-supplied power pack. Using an incorrectly rated power
supply may damage the terminal or cause it not to work as specified. Before
troubleshooting, ensure that the power supply being used to power the terminal
matches the requirements specified on the bottom of the terminal. (See Chapter
3, Specifications, for detailed power supply specifications.) Obtain the
appropriately rated power supply before continuing with troubleshooting.

TROUBLESHOOTING G UIDELINES
Smart Battery Will Not Charge
Smart Battery
Will Not Charge
NOTE
The Vx6xx smart battery must initially receive a full charge to calibrate its full
charge capacity.
Allow the Vx6xx terminal to remain connected to the power pack for 6 hours to
ensure the battery receives a full charge.
Conserve battery power by turning the Vx6xx terminal off when not in use. If the
terminal will not be used for several days, remove the battery from the terminal as
it continues to discharge even when the terminal is turned off.
NOTE
Blank Display
The Vx6xx terminal automatically shuts off when the smart battery reaches the
critically low charge state. If this occurs, the smart battery must recharge a
minimum of 1/2 hour before it can power the terminal. It may take several
recharge attempts to reset the safety circuit when charging a smart battery that
has been discharged below this critical state.
When the Vx5xx/Vx6xx terminal display screen does not show correct or clearly
readable information:
•
Check terminal power connection.
•
Remove and reapply power to the terminal.
•
Check all cable connections and verify that the telephone line is properly
connected.
•
If the problem persists, contact your local VeriFone service provider.
Terminal Does If the terminal does not dial out:
Not Dial Out • Check the telephone line connections.
•
Check that the telephone line is working by plugging it into a working
telephone and listening for a dial tone.
•
Replace the telephone cable that connects the terminal with a cable you know
is working correctly.
•
If the problem persists, contact your local VeriFone service provider.
Printer Does Not If the printer does not work properly:
Print • Check battery status or terminal power connection. The printer will not print if
there is an insufficient charge remaining in the battery to complete the print
operation. (For Vx6xx terminals only.)
44
•
Check if the printer is out of paper and that the roll is properly installed. Open
the paper roll cover and install a new roll of printer paper or ensure that the roll
is feeding from the bottom.
•
Verify that the printer roller and paper roll dust cover are properly installed.
•
If the problem persists, contact your VeriFone distributor or service provider.

Printer Paper Jam
Printer Paper If paper jams inside the printer:
Jam • Press the button on the side of the terminal to unlatch the paper roll cover,
then open the cover.
WARNING
•
Remove the damaged paper from the paper roll and clear the feed
mechanism.
•
Install a roll of printer paper, as described in Install the Paper Roll.
•
If the problem persists, it may be due to poor paper quality. Install a new
roll of higher-quality paper.
Poor-quality paper may jam the printer. To order high-quality VeriFone paper,
refer to Accessories and Documentation.
Peripheral If any peripheral device (PINpad or smart card reader) does not work properly:
Device Does Not • Check the power cord connection to the peripheral device.
Work
•
Check that the device connected to the proper port has power and is
functioning properly. If possible, perform a self-test on the device in question.
•
The cable connecting the optional device to the Vx5xx/Vx6xx terminal serial
port may be defective. Try a different serial cable. See Connect Optional
Device(s).
•
If the problem persists, contact your local VeriFone representative.
Keypad Does If the keypad does not respond properly:
Not Respond • Check the terminal display. If it displays the wrong character or nothing at all
when you press a key, follow the steps outlined in Transactions Fail To
Process.

•
If pressing a function key does not perform the expected action, refer to the
user documentation for that application to ensure you are entering data
correctly.
•
If the problem persists, contact your local VeriFone representative.
There are several reasons why the terminal may not be processing transactions.
Use the following steps to troubleshoot failures.
Check the Magnetic Card Reader
•
Perform a test transaction using one or more different magnetic stripe cards to
ensure the problem is not a defective card.
•
Ensure that you are swiping cards properly. With the Vx5xx/Vx6xx card reader,
the black magnetic stripe on the card should face down and inward, toward
the keypad and must be inserted from the top of the terminal (see Figure 30).

TROUBLESHOOTING G UIDELINES
Transactions Fail To Process
•
Process a transaction manually, using the keypad instead of the card reader. If
the manual transaction works, the problem may be a defective card reader.
•
Contact your VeriFone distributor or service provider.
•
If the manual transaction does not work, proceed to Check the Telephone
Line.
Check the Smart Card Reader
•
Perform a test transaction using several different smart cards to ensure the
problem is not a defective card.
•
Ensure that the card is inserted correctly and that the card is not removed
prematurely.
•
Ensure the MSAM cards are properly inserted in the cardholders and that the
cardholders are properly secured (see Install/Replace MSAM Cards).
•
Contact your VeriFone distributor or service provider.
•
If the manual transaction does not process, proceed to Check the Telephone
Line.
Check the Telephone Line
46
•
Disconnect the telephone line from the Vx5xx/Vx6xx terminal and connect it to
a working telephone to check for a dial tone. If there is no dial tone, replace
the telephone cable.
•
If the problem appears to be with the telephone line, check with the party you
are trying to call to see if their system is operational. If they are not
experiencing difficulties with their line, contact the telephone company and
have your line checked.
•
If the telephone line works, contact your local VeriFone representative for
assistance.
