What do I want to change, fix, or improve? What’s the expected/desired outcome?

A customer gets upset when their card isn’t read by the POS card scanner for their purchases.  The CSR informs the customer they’ll have to withdraw money from an ATM or leave their items at the store, further upsetting the customer and prompting them to call for a manager.  How can the CSR better troubleshoot the card reader system to assist the customer?

What do I know about this? How should I proceed?

With thousands of transactions every day, card readers can experience issues.  The CSR should use their quick troubleshooting guide to try to fix the problem before advising the customer on alternative purchase methods.
