Help with Magtek (21080057)

I work at a hotel and the Magtek credit card reader is flashing a red light at me. We just recently replaced the keyboard that has a USB port instead of the typical round plug... could this be the reason and how so I fix it?

I was just researching this and from what I can find, that code means that the internal tampering sensor has been triggered, meaning the your device is no longer usable. It either has to be repaired or replaced by MagTek.

Magtek check reader stalled in the middle

First. Check equipment connections. Verify that your equipment is set up the way it should be.
Second. Try a multitude of checks for testing purposes, if they still don't work it's the check reader.
3. If the check is stopping half way, I want you to use compressed air to remove any debris along the path of the reader.
4. Now, try it again. If it still stops halfway through, then it's a bad wheel. That wheel becomes overheated and looses it's rigidity. It's a passive wheel and contacts the check and compresses/guides it against the account scanner. But if the wheel is loosing its rigidity, it will fail to scan checks and fail to wheel the check in correctly.
