The Nexa NC1200 is nearly plug and play but you may need custom settings for your POS Software.

For example, instead of automatically adding “Enter” after each barcode scan, you may want to “Tab” across.

Or in the case of quickbooks POS systems a tilda “~” is needed as a prefix.

My SAM4s ER-180T cash register is Displaying PEA

My SAM4s ER-180T cash register is Displaying PEA

Note: the ER-180T had been superceded by the sam4s ER-180U. The error can be cleared in the same way.

This is a tricky one with all Sam4s registers including the ER180T because PEA is actually PER. The ER180t can’t display an “R” properly so it looks like and “A”.

So the actual error is a “PER” error which literally means Paper End Receipt.

The easy answer

You have run out of paper or nearly run out. There is a little sensor in the front of the receipt printer, if there’s no paper in front of the sensor it will display the PER error until the paper roll is replaced

The tricky answer

Sam4s ER390m cash register reset without data loss

Sam4s ER390m cash register reset without data loss

If the Sam4s er390m is beeping at you and you can’t stop it by the usual methods, then use the init clear, sometimes called “init reset” to get you back to register mode.

The reasons you might want to do a init clear / reset

1. The register is stuck and you just want to reset back to the beginning of a transaction.
2. You were programming the register and now it beeps no matter what keys you push

To Perform an Initial Clear:

1. Unplug the register.
2. Turn the control lock to the P position.
3. Press and hold the key position where the SBTL key is located on the default keyboardlayout.
4. While continuing to hold the SBTL key, plug the register into a power source.
5. The message “INITIAL CLEAR OK!” prints when the initial clear is complete.

You should now be able to use the register as per normal.
