What is the life expectancy of a Verifone vx820? What is the repair rate?

I'm doing a research paper, and would like to add information about the repair portion. Does the vx 820 have a high repair rate? And what is the life expectancy of a machine before it needs to replaced.

If it gets obsolete, it will be replaced with new model, but you still get support for the old one. Check here, maybe it says something about what you want to know Verifone 3750 manual

There is not a life expectancy for a terminal. they will be "sunsetted" or "retired" when they become obsolete. that is dependent largely on the industry and how many new and improved machines are introduced to the market. the terminal can continue to work for years to come- but because the industry changes and security is tighter the terminal may become non compliant and it will need to be replaced with a compliant terminal. the cost changes from provider to provider

Change paper

Paper roll installation is deceptively simple.  No need to feed paper through any slots inside the machine as you might expect.  Just put shiny side of paper down, feed edge of roll out of machine and under the roller that is attached to lid, and that is all there is to it!

Spits out extra paper

This is a VERY common problem for these printer models and occurs as the terminal ages. This is caused by a faulty paper feed sensor and needs to be sent in to an authorized service center to have the sensor replaced and paper feed adjusted.

Sorry it wasn't better news, but at least it can be repaired fairly inexpensively. Good luck!

Error code jam 2displays after removing paper jam. Samsung printer SCX 4100


You have had several excellent solutions brought forward in your premium post, especially to look for little pieces of paper that interfere with the LED lights and the light sensor for that area that sends a paper clear or paper occupied signal to the printer.

When this type of issue arises it is normally after the normal term of life the engineers who designed the printer expect from the printer. Most all rollers have sleeve bearings on either end and these bushings become eccentric vs. round after a predictable amount of print jobs. When these holes do become eccentric one side of the roller turns slightly faster than the other that actually has difficulty keeping up with the other end of the roller. This will cause paper to feed at an angle through the paper path.

Ultimately this leads to a paper jam. Once you begin to have one jam, here and there, you eventually have jams more and more often. When this occurs and actually prior to this series of events, the printer has reached its end of life expectancy. This is a value expressed in pages printed per month or months of service where the engineers expect so many pages per day to be printed. This whole design and life expectancy is exactly the same for copiers and why Xerox, for example, has to come on site at the job or library and do a system overhaul. These overhauls are a replacement of bushings and belts used within the power train.

What this all means is that your printer is either outside its life expectancy and probably its warranty as well.

If you are still in warranty, don't mess around trying to find a band-aid fix for this problem and have it serviced under warranty. You'll receive a refurbished machine in return. This is the best way to proceed. If you are out of warranty and like the machine get a refurbished one.

So, to repeat:
a. Look for small pieces of paper that could be blocking the light sensors and sending a paper jam signal to the printers CPU.
b. If you are out of warranty get a new printer or refurbished one.
c. If you are in warranty get it replaced under warranty for a refurbished model.

Inserting Paper into Verifone Credit Card machine

I do not have a pictur eor video but it is not difficult. Open printer door, place paper in printer with the paper coming out towards the keys of the terminal from underneath the roll. Pull slacked paper over keys of terminal and shut printer door.

Check your power supply. I believe the Current is rated at 2 amps. If you have a supply that is generating less than that it will result in having this same issue with the printer.
