Repair Lightspeed Restaurant POS (O-series)


Experiencing a bug or glitch on the Lightspeed Restaurant POS (O-series) app?

Lightspeed Restaurant (O-series) has a built-in app cleaning utility that helps to flush out old cached data which may be causing it. It is a great place to start when troubleshooting.

As long as your register is online, there is no data loss in this process.

Note - DO NOT perform a repair if you are experiencing connectivity issues as this may result in data loss.
