You first need to create a new inventory item.
1. Create a standard item in the INVENTORY Maintenance.
2. Call it NOTES and put it in the NONE department.
3. Uncheck all boxes under OPTIONAL INFO, the OPTIONS tab.
4. Click the ADDITIONAL INFO tab, uncheck all boxes but PROMPT DESCRIPTION.
5. Under PRINTERS, add the kitchen printer.
6. Save the inventory item.
8. Click on one of the 16 buttons in middle of page, an unused one. It should turn green.
9. On bottom half of page, set it to a FIXED ITEM.
10. Set caption to KITCHEN NOTES.
11. Check box to display button.
12. Picture can be left blank.
13. In ENTER ITEM NUMBER, type NOTES, the new item you created.
14. Click SAVE AND EXIT.
15. Log out of RPE. When you log back in, you should have a KITCHEN NOTES button. You have a limit of 30 characters. However you can hit button as often as you like to continue your message to kitchen. This should not print on customer's receipt.

Our kitchen's printer is reading as "offline". The printer is making intermittent printing sounds but no paper is being fed through the top.

Your paper roll is empty but if it's not the paper sensor is not working. Send it to a technician if sensor is bad or buy a new printer.

Kitchem printer misses items or sometimes an entire ticket.

It sounds like a software glitch. I would begin looking for new programs, and possibly a new system for the tickets entirely.

Hi Rick,
Does it send to kitchen at all? When you hit resend, are items listed set to go to kitchen in inventory setup? If they are, you may need to reload/repair RPE.
Feel free to email me with more details if need be.

All closed checks in the dining room print in the kitchen. I am wasting a ton of expensive paper. RPE manual does not answer this question. Thanks. Danielle

Have you checked the settings in FRIENDLY PRINTER SETUP to make sure they haven't changed. Next from the windows printer screen, send a test page to receipt printer and kitchen printer to make sure windows still has them configured properly. Contact me if you can't get it figured out.

How can i write a note to my kitchen?

Create a new inventory item in the NONE department with no price and set it to prompt for description and add the kitchen printer to it under printers. On your touch screen configuration, set one of the bottom buttons to a fixed item and make it the new item you just created. Now you can touch one button and send a note to kitchen with any order. You are limited to 30 characters/spaces but just hit button again for second line. After sending to kitchen, you can recall and delete lines if necessary.

Too many printers listed

Not sure what happen to this but I had the same problem. What you need to do is highlight each one except the first HP Photosmart 4100 series, and delete all the other ones.

So delete the following 6 printers.

Send to One Note 2007
Microsoft XPS Document Writer
HP Photosmart C4100 series (copy 1)
HP --------------------" ------" (copy 2)
HP....................................(copy 3) AND
HP ..................................(copy 4) which is the only one that works!!!!!

Now the one that is left should be the default. Do a test page or print something out to make sure.

This should fix your problem. Please rate.
