My terminal displays 'Device Tampered'

If the terminal detects any attempt to modify it then it will respond by 'Tampering’ and display 'Unit Tampered'. This protection occurs regardless of whether the terminal is powered up or not. When the device Tampers it erases all sensitive information, such as the Acquirer / Bank keys used for transaction processing.

The device will not be able to perform any transactions from this point on. The device needs to be returned to Quest to reset the tamper condition. The device indicates a tamper response by displaying a particular message once the tamper event occurred.

Contact Support to arrange the repair of your terminal should your unit display that it has been tampered.
