PicoMarket+ RMA - Hardware Replacement Guide
Updated

Overview

This article is specifically for the PicoMarket+, which is the PicoMarket with a bill validator. If you are looking for instructions on hardware replacement for the PicoMarket, which does NOT have a bill validator, click HERE. 365 Support will deem whether or not an RMA is necessary. If an RMA is needed for either the Pico device or the bill validator, the operator keeps the stand.

  • In the event the Pico is being replaced, only the Pico device is removed/replaced - not the entire stand. The old Pico must be removed from the stand, and the new one installed. The operator will need to return one of the antenna cables/antenna and the scanner shield that comes in the RMA kit when they send back the old Pico device. If these pieces are NOT returned, a flat rate of $30 will be charged. Additionally, if a SIM card is in use, the operator will need to remove it from the old Pico and insert it in the new one.
