Hi,

I am sorry to say but your unit needs to be sent for repair. The TOC error shows up when the unit can't read the Table Of Contents of the disc (and simply shuts down after trying)....and in your case, you said it can't read any disc. This indicates that the lens unit has malfunctioned and needs to be repaired or replaced.

I have a casio CE3700 cash register. The machine locked up. I followed the normal procedures to resolve this, however when I turned the power back on from the socket the machine fails to turn on at all...


It sounds like there is a good reason for it locking up the first time then. Most commonly it is caused by a printer problem. Most Casio models will run the printer before they turn the display on, so if you can't hear the printer run at turn on, I'd start there. Look for paper jams. make sure the motor can turn freely. If the motor is okay, check the battery. You can experience weird problems if the battery has not been replaced on time. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have just put a blank disc into my sony mds s40 to record but now nothing works on the player....i just keep getting a small red flashing toc, i've tried unplugging from mains then re connecting but...


You may have the disc shutter closed preventing recording. You should never interrupt the recorder when it is trying to write to disc, you probably corrupted the table of contents (TOC) on the disc and need to reformat it to use it again.
If your deck is older you may have worn out the recording heads preventing it from writing to the disc in the worst case.

Sir good evening i have cash regester casio 160cr.Error code is e94 pls help how i can run my cash regester thanks.


I suggest you to reset your equipment.Here is how:
Remove AA batteries and unplug register from wall for 15 minutes.

Two more options;
Option #1:
To print the transaction details before clearing the journal memory:

VERY IMPORTANT: Do not interrupt once printing begins or the journal will not be cleared.

1. Make sure the paper is full in the register.
2. Turn to Z mode.
3. Hit the RC key until the screen displays "E94".
4. Hit Cash Amount Tender.

Once the printing is completed, the journal is cleared and the register is ready for use.

Option #2:
To clear the journal memory WITHOUT printing the transaction details:

1. Turn to Z mode
2. Hit RC key until the screen displays "E94 Clear"
3. Hit Cash Amount Tender

Hello i have a sharp xe-a1010 cash registar and it froze. ive tried unplugging and reseting it but no luck. ive also tried the clear-escX2-subt# and nothing works.. help please thanks


I think you mean an XE-A101. Try turning the key to REG mode, take one battery out, turn off at wall for 10 minutes, turn on at wall. Put battery back in. NOTE you will lose any sales in the machine. If this doesn't work, then it is usually a keyboard or printer problem.

I got te-8500f, while i open it, the display shows: cpu Exceptional Error! Error no. 100 error point c00d8f6 access adrs 1f7 any help? Thanks in advance.


This indicates the actual processor in the machine has failed. Unfortunately the processor is the most important part of the whole register. If it is in fact a Casio register it can be repaired, but you will need to contact them. They are open right now actually, give them a call at 1-800-706-2534

Thanks

Hi i want to empty all program and make a new program for pcr-t2000 what should i do?


This is not recommended. You will make more work for yourself. All you need to do is edit the existing programming and you are away. It sounds like you will need to do a lot of editing, so I'd suggest getting a manual and going through it to see what settings will suit your business. If you get stuck, let me know.

Ive just got a mini disk player and its comeing up toc error,can you help me please


Probably not. There are various reasons that TOC errors occur, some are fixable and others not, but Sharp MD units were really known to suffer from them for multiple reasons all at once. TOC means Table Of Contents; it's an index file on the disc which tells the host machine where everything on the disc is located and the TOC is modified whenever you edit a disc. Sometimes the file gets corrupted, but often the machine itself simply becomes unable to read the disc and as the TOC is the first thing it tries to read then you get a TOC error.

If you're lucky the TOC error is limited to a single minidisc; if this is the case then it's just one faulty disc and although there are ways to perform TOC cloning they usually involve hacking the host machine in various ways which may cause permanent damage. Unless the disc is important, just chuck it away and use a new one. If the fault is with the player then again, just chuck it into the nearest electronic waste recycling bin. Spares are not available, and as it's a Sharp, diagnosis will be difficult and the fault likely to return.

Many MD players are practically worthless these days so they're often available on FreeCycle and Freegle groups: Sony are the preferred choice by far, and are also the most commonly offered brand, but take whatever is on offer without complaint and worry about problems later; after all, they are free.

Kenwood MD plays ok but recordings fail to play; U TOC error?


Without a decent Table Of Contents, your MiniDisc will NOT work, as you've found out. Does it matter what brand of MD you use? I would record it at "1X" and NOT 4x speed too. Try erasing a blank minidisc first and then shut off the unit and then turn it back on and see if the TOC works. Try adding a title, then turn it off and back on. Then try the CD to MD.

What does toc err mean?


TOC is table of contents. Typically if its on a recorded cd try burning a cd from antoher computer and try it, if it works its most likely that your burner or software or ccd's your using are bad. Also is it a MP3 disc your trying to play? If so then you MUST burn it as a MP3 cd. You cant just burn MP3's to a CD and it read them. If this is the case thats why you are getting the TOC error because its not writing to the CD whats on the CD on the TOC area of the disc.
