Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Can a Sharp Cash Register ER-A440 be programmed to use the automatic Sales tax key & just three Dept., keys to enter various items all at different prices? Also, how do I remove everything entered in the Register & start fresh with the above? I have the manuel but it seems that everything is so complicated that I can't figure it out. Thank You. Pat

    I would like to have an answer to my original problems with an ER-A440 Sharp Cash Register.
    I'm very disappointed that no one can help me.
    I've never used a site like this & won't use it again. It seems to me that an expert should be able to help me.

    trying to program the tax tables onto a Sharp ER-440. I have plotted out the rates in exel and compared them to the example in the manual it does't make ann sense. A simple hand held calulator can do the task but not the Cash register without having a programming class????

Put the key in program 2
Press the Tax or VAT key
Enter a number for this tax rate, here in Ontario, Canada we have GST and PST so Tax1 can be GST and 2 can be PST.
Press the multiplication key (Circled X)
Enter the tax rate in %, 4% key in 4
Press multiplication Key
Enter the lowest taxable amount in cents, $.12 would be keyed in as 12
Press the TL key to finalize programming.

The register should print our a report showing you the changes you made.

This is all described on page 26 of your manual.

I have not found a way to reset the register to factory defaults in the manual.

Hi-

Just to verify if I understand the issue, so the thing is that you already have it working but you can't configure the program to make it work the way you want it, right? chances are application overrides the settings of your Sharp cash register, if you are using a special software then i think that's the 2nd thing that you need to check on, since this is the only application or program where you can change the settings and another thing is that you nay need to change some settings/enter codes on the software itself. if you have already called SHARP regarding this, second option is to call your application vendor.

Keep us posted for other details so that we can actually figure this out, thanks!

1. Perhaps you received solutions about a fax machine because you put your question in the fax machines category.

2. Why are you getting mad at people? If it can't be done, it can't be done plain and simple. Getting mad at the messenger doesn't help; get mad at Sharp or, perhaps the person that purchased the cash register that couldn't do what you needed it to do.

I know what I'm about to say is irrelevant, but you have my sympathy. I have a cash register at my shop, that I've had for three years and still cannot program. For Pete's sake, I can program computers and tear laptops completely apart and make them work, but I can't program an overgrown calculator. I am now using Quickbooks for calculating and receipts and the register for money storage. I hope someone can help with this, and if you find any "easy bake" cash registers please let me know.

    After reading the manual (what a headache), there is no automatic setting where you just hit the total key and the sales tax is automatically calculated into the sale. You will have to program the tax percentage into a tax key, then the key sequence after entering the item prices will be; sub total, tax key, then total. As far as clearing the machine, there is no automatic reset, you will have to override and reprogram any preprogramed key with the new settings you want. It's complicated, and there's no simple solution, personally, I would see if there is a service tech in your area and have he/she program the machine. It would save time and possibly costly mistakes at your business.

WE HAVE A SHARP ER-A610 CASH REGISTER WE WOULD LIKE TO CHANGE THE ITEM LABEL FOR EACH DEPARTMENT KEY BUT DON'T KNOW THE JOB # AND PROCEEDURE FOR DOING IT I DON'T HAVE ALL THE PAGES OF THE MANU


Sharp uses a 3-digit ASCII code for each character. The ER-A610 manual has a table of the codes, but if you've lost that part of the book, you can find ascii tables online, like this one:
http://www.ascii.cl/
Note that many of these show 2-digit codes; add a leading zero to those, so A is 065, B is 066, etc.
the 00 key on your ER-A610 has a special purpose here - it is used to enter each character's code, so to spell FOOD you'd enter:
070 00
079 00
079 00
068 00
where each of those double-zeroes is the double-zero key, not just two zeroes.
You need to know the number of each department you need to change. If you're not sure what order they're numbered in (It's completely customizable, so don't count on them being in order, unless you're sure.), print out your current department programming:
(In PGM1 or PGM2 mode)
1100 @/FOR CA/AT
will print out all the depts. CA/AT is the Cash key at the bottom-right corner of the keyboard. It stands for CAsh / Amount Tendered, which isn't exactly obvious, so some folks relabel it.
Note that on the tape you printed, the name is printed below the dept. number.
Now we're ready to start. In PGM2 mode, enter:
2114 . @/FOR (Is the decimal point after the 2114 visible here?)
[dept. number] @/FOR [character codes] SBTL
[dept. number] @/FOR [character codes] SBTL
[dept. number] @/FOR [character codes] SBTL
(etc. until done)
CA/AT
For [dept. number], enter the number on the keypad, not by touching the actual dept. key.
[character codes] is the sequence of 3-digit codes and 00 key presses, like the FOOD example above.
If the departments you're changing are sequential, life is a little easier. When you finish Department 6 (for example) by touching the SBTL key, it will automatically count up to 7. You can do a series of depts. by entering the first of them as above, then after using the SBTL key, go straight into the character codes for the next in line. Continue this way for as many are in series. You can jump ahead or back at any time by with [dept. no.] @/FOR and keep going from there.
SBTL in all the lines above, means the key that normally shows your subtotal including tax. It might be labeled #/SBTL. The MDSE SBTL key won't do the trick.
If you use PLU's in you register, their names are programed exactly the same, except that instead of starting with 2114, you use 2214. Simple, no?

Can't change the tax rate on a Sharp ER-2386 cash register


The amount that goes in the blank is the minimal amount that the tax can be applied. Put the number 1 in the blank to indicate all sales over $.01 will be taxed. Also, 8375 won't work. It's looking for a 5 digit number so if you're trying to indicate a 8 3/8% tax rate, it should be entered 83750. Post back if you have any questions.
