Receipt too long

This printer will print a receipt 9" long for one cup of coffee. Is there a way to condense the information to save money on ink and paper.

According to the printer manual http://www.citizen-systems.com/support/downloads/CD-S500UM5_101.pdf
the length of the receipt is set by your POS software only the width is set in the printer to make sure all the letters fit, or wrap to the next line if needed
There must be some settings in the software that allow headings or other text in what is now a blank space.
Instead of Blanks, there must be an 'off' selection for those items (logo motto operator name etc) and a length for a 'cutoff margin'
cant tell you
don't know the software used
try google for 'configure receipt printing in "software"'

Sharp XEA22S cash register....will it work without paper....we don't have any thermal paper and the cash drawer will not operate


No it will not. If you have bond (non thermal paper) it will work with that but you will not see any printing on the receipt. If you are still stuck, cut a piece of A4 paper to the width of the printer. Insert it in the printer and press CLEAR (CL). Once the machine accepts it, turn the receipt off and you can operate it without printing. Remember, you can't print end of day reports though. ------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have a Casio PCR-T275, but the printer does not work well. The receipt just printed out half as it supposed be! Can u give me a hand on what to do? My email address is yunyun.c@hotmail.com


This is the standard problem with this model. The printer fails after a while as it has a short life span and prints only one side of the receipt. I've now lost count of the number I've replaced. You will need a new printer unit. It is not too expensive but it would be a good idea to sell it once you have it fixed. I've seen some machines that are on their fourth printer. If you don't have it in paper save mode so you only issue occasional receipts, it will race through printers.

Hi.
I don't have information on this model, but it sounds like it is one of the very low end registers. These machines can not have the printing turned off. They were designed to be journal printers or continuous receipt printers. You need to buy a machine with receipt memory to get this function. (PCR-T series and above)

What Cash Register can I use that will allow me put my store name and phone number on the receipt CASIO TEM80 TILL


Hi.
Yes, the TEM80 will allow you to put your name and phone number on the receipt. The only ones that dont are drum printing registers. these are the ones that spin little wheels in the printer that tap out numbers on the paper. If the printer is a thermal type (such as the TEM80) then it can definitely print a receipt message.

Zero tk 6500-1 casio till


if all you want to do is clear all totals, turn the program key to off. hold down the RECEIPT FEED button and turn the key to PROGRAM. release the button and now you should see a line of F's. enter 8888888888 and press subtotal. this will clear all the totals and leave the program intact.

Won't print


If the roll is feeding, but not printing, you may have the paper backwards, or wrong paper. If it is not feeding, you may have the receipt turned off.
If this doesn't help, please supply more information.
