The reason for writing magnetic error is improper debugging of the magnetic writing device. When the magnetic writing is rewritten, the original magnetic stripe information is not completely erased, and the magnetic card is improperly processed in the transportation and storage process, causing the writing magnetic error. It is worth mentioning that the early delivery is Some punching devices or punching devices produced by individual manufacturers may cause different degrees of write magnetic errors when writing magnetic cards of different thicknesses without adjustment.

The issuing bank only needs to use the simple terminal cleaner. This type of cleaner comes with a card cleaner that removes the fluff and dust from the surface around the terminal. Proper maintenance of the terminal head can improve the terminal's card reading capability and reduce the card reading failure rate by 30%.
