ET3000 Long boot delay with Mag-Stripe reader

Last Updated: Nov 30, 2017 10:33AM PST
Problem:
There is a long delay, with a black screen, lasting about 30 seconds, between boot progress bar and terminal manager screen (or login panel).  

Cause:
The terminal is attempting to write config program code to magnetic stripe reader but reader is hung up.  This causes multiple retries delaying the boot cycle.

Solution:
There are three possible solutions to this problem, in order of simplicity:
1. unplug / replug keyboard and reader from terminal
2. unplug / replug power cord from terminal
3. replace reader
