Retail Equipment Overview
Most everyone associates cash registers with retail establishments, but there are many types of electronic equipment which are used to help facilitate the entire retail process, from manufacturing, to production, to sales, to customer service, to employee and business management. Some of these devices are designed just for employee use, while others (like self-service kiosks) are meant for direct customer use and engagement. The modern retail experience would look and feel very different without these essential pieces of equipment, and it can certainly be frustrating whenever one or more of these devices aren’t working properly.
Here’s a list of just a few of the types of electronic equipment we’ve successfully repaired and serviced for retail clients:
- POS System Devices & Components
- Poster Printer
- Industrial Printer
- Large Format Printer
- Power Supply
- Label Printer
- Flatbed Scanner
- Film Scanner
- Receipt Printer
- Photo Processing Printer
- Servo Drive
- AC/DC Drive
- Printed Circuit Board (PCB)
- Commercial PC
- Servo Motor
- Scale Displays
What Are Some Common Issues with Retail Equipment?
Just as is the case for any electronic equipment, medical devices and support technology can wear down or even breakdown over time. And once that happens, the other components of your connected system may also be rendered useless until the faulty equipment is addressed. Here are some of the more common issues we see in our repair and refurbishing work on medical equipment at AES:
Power surges & power source issues
One spike or surge is all it takes to inflict some damage upon your electronic retail equipment. Connecting your equipment to a power protection device can help to prevent some of these issues in the first place. But if your equipment has suffered a power surge or another power-related problem, it may be time to reach out to the pros at AES to schedule some repairs or service.
Issues with cables and connections
In busy retail, food service, or restaurant environment, it’s pretty commonplace for an employee to accidentally trip over a cable or cause some damage to an equipment connection. For this reason, it’s wise to invest in a proactive cable management system to help prevent some of these kinds of issues. But even so, cable or connection problems can and do still occur with regular equipment usage over time. AES can provide needed repairs whenever needed.
Sometimes, your equipment hardware itself may be fine, and the problem may be internal. Keeping all your software and drivers updated is a good first line of proactive defense, but glitches can still develop from time to time. Some of these issues may be things you can troubleshoot yourself. But if you get to the place where you really don’t know what else to do, go ahead and reach out to the AES team!
Spills, humidity, & contaminant intrusion
Unwanted spills can land on your retail equipment from time to time, especially in food prep or food service environments. And moisture itself – including excess humidity – is a common threat to electronic devices of all types. Other contaminants can infiltrate and shorten the life of your equipment too, including dust, dirt, oils, and chemical vapors. If you’ve got some issues with your electronic components, let the AES service experts help.
Even if you’ve made every effort to keep your retail equipment well-maintained, eventually, some problems can and will still develop over time – especially if you use your retail devices on a daily basis. Some retail environments can be more stressful on equipment than others, too. If you’ve got some equipment which needs repairing and refurbishing, AES can take care of that!

Our cleaning process is very thorough, and we know how to remove all intruded contaminants and residual moisture.
