My sharp xe-a101 cash register will not initialise. It is continually beeping and has no display, and before you ask, I have removed the batteries before plugging it in.

    The power point is ok, no assistance from Sharp.

    It gave me some ideas on where to look, and what to look for, and allowed me to eliminate possible faults. Prompt replies at all times.

Iniatialization of machine starts from detecteng it's sensors next is the moving mechanism..if one of them fails a beeping sound will activate indicating an error in a device.when you first power on and beeping activates probably there is an error in the sensors. try to locate the sensors usually sensors are found on the cover of the machine,at the limit of moving mechanism,at the money drawer,paper feeds and ink cartridges clean those sensors by wipeng the dirt on it.check the terminals of the sensor whether the wirings are connected,next the mechanism be sure they can move freely without a paper jam.lubricate all moving parts using a lubricant also the main CPU board be sure there is no foriegn object place on it such as metallic coins.staple etc. good luck just post a message if you have any other inquires ill be glad to help you..thanks!pls rate my help.

    all the sensors tested ok. The fault turned out to be a tiny spring in the printhead assy which was not located correctly..

    if you have the same machine maybe you can compare that mechanism to give you the guide to where it is placed.or you can figure it out by close look at the mechanism for sure there is a mounting bracket for that spring..thanks again.good luck.

Is the power supplied to the electrical outlet? (Plug another electrical device into the outlet for confirmation.) Is the power cord firmly connected to the electrical outlet? Call 1-800-BE-SHARP and they can help you with the beeping and no display problem

Make sure the switch is on REG mode. Make sure there are NO batteries in it. Turn power off at wall for a few minutes. Turn on and it should beep three times. Then put the batteries in. If it beeps more than three times, the printer is probably jammed or faulty. Make sure it can turn. Try taking the ink roller out as it sometimes gets sticky and jams the printer.

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.
