Just like any Computer, in rare circumstances, you may need to reset your reader.
The reset connector has two functions as follows:
- Soft Reset: Allows you to perform a quick reset of the reader system to a state just after the reader is turned on. Apply a momentary short circuit to the reset connector pins. The reader will immediately reset.
- Hard Reset: Allows a power-reset of the reader as if it had just been powered off and back on using the power button. Apply a short circuit (by placing a piece of metal across the pins) to the reset connector pins for 20 seconds. The reader will emit a constant tone during this time to warn of the upcoming power reset. After 20 seconds the reader will perform a complete power off for 3 seconds, then power itself on again. Remove the short from the reset connector.
Thanks for your feedback.
