Handling Cautions
Install the cash register in a location not subject to direct sunlight, unusual temperature
changes, high humidity, or splashing water.
Do not operate the cash register with wet hands. Water can cause internal component failure.
The cash register plugs into any standard wall outlet (120V AC ± 10%). Avoid connecting any
other electrical devices on the same electrical circuit since such connection could cause the
cash register to malfunction.
For Easy Set-up,
See “Getting Started”
When cleaning the cash register, use a dry, soft cloth. Never use volatile liquids, such as
benzine or thinner. Chemicals can discolor or damage the cabinet.
3. Install a new ink roller.
1. Be sure the cash register is plugged in.
2. Turn the mode switch to the REG position.
For protection against data loss, please install three new “AA” batteries before using the cash

Batteries must be installed in the cash register to
prevent data and programmed contents from being
lost from the memory in case of accidental
disconnection of the AC cord or power failure. Please
install three new “AA” batteries before programming
and operating the cash register. Once installed, the
batteries will last approximately one year. When it is
time to replace them, the “l” symbol will appear on
the display to indicate a low battery voltage. If the
symbol appears, you must replace them within two

When you program the tax status for a department,
tax will be automatically added to sales of items
assigned to the department according to the
programmed tax status for the department. You can
also enter tax manually.
There are two tax programming methods. The tax
rate method uses a straight percentage rate per
dollar. The tax table method requires tax break
information from your state or local tax offices. Use
the method which is acceptable in your state. You
can obtain necessary data for tax programming from
your local tax office.
For tax table programming, see "programming"
Tax Rate Programming
The percent rate specified here is used for tax
calculation on taxable subtotals. Turn the mode
switch to the Z/PGM position and use the following
sequence to program the tax rate:
➝ Tax number(1-4) ➝
Before you can proceed with registration of sales,
you must first program the tax that is levied in
accordance with the law of your state. Your cash
register comes with the ability to program four
different tax rates. In most states, you will only
need to program Tax 1. However, if you live in an
area that has a separate local tax (such as a Parish
tax) or a hospitality tax, your register can be
programmed to calculate these separate taxes.
In order to program the tax to be collected in
accordance with the law of your state, you must
specify the tax rate(s) and minimum taxable
where R and Q represent the following.
R: Tax rate (0.0000% to 99.9999%) x 10000
Enter the rate in 6 digits (leading zeros may be
omitted). If the rate is fractional (e.g., 4 3/8%), it
should be converted to its decimal equivalent
(4.375) before entering.
Q: Minimum taxable amount (0.01 to 99.99) x 100
Smallest amount for which tax must be collected. In
some states, sales whose amounts are less than the
minimum taxable amount are not subject to tax. If
amounts $0.01 to $0.10 are not taxed, the value of
Q would be 11 (for $0.11), the lowest of the first
taxable category.

Tax 1
where R, M and Q represent the following:
R: Tax rate (0.0000% to 99.9999%) x 10000
If the rate is fractional, it should be converted to its
decimal equivalent before entering.
M: Cycle (0.01 to 99.99) x 100
In tax table 1, you can see that the breakpoint
differences repeat in cycle. The value of M may be
viewed as the taxable amount which is covered by a
cycle. Thus, it can be determined by adding all of the
breakpoint differences in a cycle or by simply taking the
difference between the first breakpoint of the cycle and
the first breakpoint of the next cycle.
Q: Minimum taxable amount (0.01 to 99.99) x 100
This represents the smallest amount for which tax must
be collected. In some states, sales whose amounts are
less than a specific minimum taxable amount are not
subject to taxation.
Breakpoints (0.01 to 99.99) x 100
The tax amount increases in stages. The value of a
taxable subtotal at which the tax amount changes is
called a breakpoint. The difference between one
breakpoint and the next is called the breakpoint
difference. A group of breakpoint differences is
repeated at regular intervals and each of these intervals
is called a cycle. A maximum of 18 breakpoints (for tax
types 1 and 2), between 0.01 to 99.99, can be
programmed. Intervals between breakpoints must be
less than one dollar.
