to send the proper opening codes to the printer, which will then send the signal to
open the Cash Drawer. Consult the documentation or manuals for your particular
printer for the proper open codes.
 If using Printer-driven Interface: Verify the correct end of the RJ-12 printer cable is
connected to the cash drawer as well as the printer.
 If using a Multi-Serial, Standard Serial or USB Interface please refer to their
individual User Manuals for specific instructions on troubleshooting. .
 Verify correct position of the lock. To open electronically the lock would need to
be in the 12 o’clock position.
