How to Get Help

You can call, email, or submit a support ticket to get help with your issue. Our technology provider, Technology by Design, will ask you some questions to figure out what the issue is and walk you through how to get the kiosk up and running again.

When you contact Technology by Design, please ensure to provide them with

  1. Your kiosk's serial number. This can be found by clicking on the Support button on the kiosk desktop. Not sure how to find the kiosk desktop? Read more below.

If you can't access your kiosk's desktop, you can also find your serial number under the monitor bezel.
  1. Your name, your organization, and how best to contact you if you are leaving a message or are disconnected.
  2. A detailed description of the problem, its context (what was happening when the problem occurred), and its impact (severity) on your role.
  3. The application you were using.
  4. Any error messages associated with the issue.

How to Get to the Desktop

You can always find the main menu wherever you are in the kiosk in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Here you will find some icons.

  1. Web Browser: this icon will launch our main menu that can connect you with resources, programs, and free legal assistance. You can also use this as a normal web browser to check your email or surf the web.
  2. Kiosk Desktop: this icon will bring you to the desktop of the kiosk as seen in the first image above. Here you can end a session, start scanning, or launch the web browser.
