if you are asking if you can do this on your VX510, the answer is you can not check prior activity for any credit card on a credit card machine, that would require contacting the bank that issued the credit card. if it is your card they will provide information, if not your card, you will need owner of card to call.
Most likely because you settled the day in the morning and your processor only allows one batch settlement per day.
The type of terminal in this case doesn't matter. Hypercom, Ingenico, PAX, Verifone etc... It is all about what the processor allows in the programming.
This problem could have multiple causes. It sounds like you are receiving a settlement error, which are specific to each merchant services provider. You will have to call the merchant services provider so that they can look up the error message on their end and tell you what is causing the error. For example, the error message that you would receive if you use First Data would be different than the message you would get if you used Bank of America. Your terminal will not let you run any more cards until you resolve the settlement error. This is to prevent you from continuing to run cards in a corrupted batch, or a duplicate batch.
ANY card swiped when machine returns settlement failed error will probably return the same error. It's not the card - it's the batch stuck inside the machine. Whether manual batch or autobatch, sometimes the data IS actually transferred completely out of the machine but somehow the machine doesn't get that message from the backend server that settlement was completed *settlement failed* , there may have been some corrupted files, or maybe the settlement really did fail and is stuck and needs to be settled/batched out/transmitted to free up that terminal. Try simply settling that machine - press the down arrow (far left purple function key) ; press F2 Settlement and follow prompts.
Yes, digital phone lines work fine for credit card authorizations, because it's a quick dial out and transfering of data. But batching process takes longer and you will have communication problems with your terminal on any digital, VOIP, or cable phone lines. Analog is the only way to fix this problem. NO credit card machine is immune to this problem.
