As you're using your reader, you'll see multiple status lights on the device. Here's what they all mean.
A red LED light - the device is starting up or the battery is being charged.
The red LED light is off - the device is fully charged.
A flashing red LED light - the device is low on battery.
A solid blue light - the device has successfully paired with the EMV reader and is ready to accept credit card payments (Bluetooth is connected).
A blinking blue light - the device has not paired with the EMV reader or it's in sleep mode (the device is in standby mode/waiting to connect with Bluetooth or Bluetooth has been disconnected).
A blinking blue and white light - the reader is actively trying to send data or you're trying to charge a credit card.
A flashing red and green light means the reader is powering up.
What does a flashing blue and red light mean?
Hi Dalton... I'm not sure, but I'd guess it indicates two issues - low power (flashing red) and trying to connect (flashing blue). Try charging the reader to full and see if it still happens. If it's still a problem, please contact support.
That is correct. The reader will show 2 separate statuses at the same time. This is also why people sometimes see a purple light.
