Programming the SAM4s ER-5200M Cash Register

The ER-5200M is a great register that is pretty easy to program. Following is some help on programming the tax rates for this register.

Straight Percentage Tax Rate Programming


When tax requirements may be met using a straight percentage rate, use the following method to
program a tax as a straight percentage.

Programming Straight Percentage Tax Rates and Status

1. Turn the control lock to the P position.

2. If the tax is a percentage rate, with a decimal. (0.000-99.999). It is not necessary to
enter preceding zeros. For example, for 6%, enter 06.000 or 6.000.

3. For the type of tax:
If the tax is a percentage added to the sale (normal add on tax), enter: 0
If the tax is a percentage value added tax (VAT; calculated as part of the
sale), enter:2

4. Enter 0 here for all taxes, unless if you are programming tax 4 as a Canadian GST. If tax
4 is a Canadian GST, enter the sum of the options below:

OPTION VALUE = SUM

GST (tax 4) is taxable by rate 1? Yes = 1 No = 0

GST (tax 4) is taxable by rate 2? Yes = 2 No = 0

GST (tax 4) is taxable by rate 3? Yes = 4 No = 0

5. Press the Tax Shift key for the tax you are programming.

6. Press the CASH key to end programming.

Below is an example of a tax rate of 8.8% NON GST regular sales tax rate

Programming Chart  8.80000

The last two zeros are the answer to Steps 3 and 4

I think the manual is posted here for the ER5200M

i have a sam4s 5200m and have an error message over limit error/e07. can anyone help with what this error message means. many thanks

 
At 3:01 PM, Blogger Dave said...

I did not look up in the manual however in most cash register Over Limit means you are trying to enter to large a dollar amount into whatever is giving you that error. This is to prevent overrings in open PLU or Group entry in most cases although some registers also control the media keys in this way.

An example would be if you had an open entry or even a pre-set that could be over written and it was set not to allow anything over 4.00 to be entered and you entered $4.01 it will give you that error.

Here right from the manual page 104"Program 200 - PLU Price/HALO Programming If a PLU is open, set the HALO (high amount lock out) here. If a PLU is preset set the preset price
here."

So most likely this is what this is. If you do not have a manual I think we have one posted here SAM4s Cash Register Manuals

That is just the basic error message so it could be any number of things from an open drawer, to entering something wrong, to key in the wrong mode etc. If you bought from us you can call and I will trupble shoot for free but if you did not buy from us you can pay for support or call the place you bought it from.

Looking for help. I have a Sam4s ER 5200M and I am trying to program cash tender keys so the clerks just have to press the key for the denomination the customer gives them. I cannot find instructions for this in the manual.

 
At 11:22 AM, Blogger Dave said...

The pre-set tender keys are Macro Keys. Page 155 in my manual (sometimes page numbers vary depending on the age of the manual)

Of course you must have the macro key(s) placed on the keyboard.

Hope that helps

I have a sam4s 5200M. I used the pc utility software to change some system and print setting and now my PLU and Daily Sales Report do not work. They were working before I made changes. I have tried setting everything back to the likely defaults to no avail. Any suggestions you have will be greatly appreciated.

 
At 4:26 PM, Blogger Dave said...

Do you mean you can not take the reports or that they are all zero? I hope you did not download from the software before you had uploaded first so you were editing your existing program and did not download a blank program? So tell me a bit more. What happens, error or print zeros or what?

Yep program 700 on page 156 and it allows you to program the lines of logo text. you can also program the 5200M to use a graphic logo and then use the pc utility to download a black and white logo.

I have a 5200m and in reg mode error E39 *warning req valid* shows up can u help me fix this?!???

 
At 11:23 AM, Blogger Dave said...

It sounds like you have programmed one of your payment keys, or departments to require validation "warning reg valid" so you need to do an init clear to first get out of this error. After the error has been cleared go through the same as the last transaction and see where the validation is required and re-program that item. It will lock up again of course while do this test.

Look on page 17 of the manual. It is tax shift 1 that was there maybe you removed it? It can be put back if you need to but chances are it is there and maybe not labled or labled something else?

i need help in programming a coded clerk key. Put in all the values and the cash register remains closed when I type the code in. It wont open the register doing so. Can you help? Its a Sam4s 5200m. Thanks

 
At 11:23 AM, Blogger Dave said...

Sorry but I have to assume operator error. I would double check that you are entering the code correctly CLERK XXXXXX CLERK do not put in leading zeros etc unless you programmed them into the code. The above it for coded entry for direct it is just # Clerk and 0 Clerk to sign off.

All this is on page 26 and 27 I think in the manual.

If the cash register works fine in program and Z then chances are ypu just are entering it wrong

I'm not sure I understand what you are asking? The daily report shows a transaction count by media not sure if it shows a total or not. Are you saying you want a total transaction count regardless of the type of transaction?

At 9:50 AM, Blogger Dave said...

Nancy I reccomend spending some time with a tech to learn how to program since you are not the person that bought the cash register who would have been trained to do those things. Everything you mentioned can be done of course. Your special items are just programming a PLU and you could even set it to be open or pre-set and you can change the name whenever you wanted to as well. Start with programm 100 page 99 for the items. For the discount key (coupons) Program 70 page 147 is a good place to start.

One of our tech could spend an hour or two over the phone with you. We do charge for this of course but they can teach you the basics up to programming and everything in between. You can call us at 1-800-863-2274 and keep in mind when a person buys one of these machines it is no uncommon to spend 5 hours with a tech learning how to use and program sometimes more.

Dave,
Ok. I was able to program the percentage discount key but it looks like I will be spending some time familiarizing myself with the book. Thank you for the option to falkland I probably will. Is there a range of per hour charge for this service. Thanks

 
At 10:34 AM, Blogger Dave said...

Once you have programmed a few items it all starts to make more sense. Yes we do charge for the support by the hour. The rates depend on how much time you need. In your case I don't think you would need much to get you going. Some end-users pre-pay for time so they can call/email whenever they need help and doing it that way the rates come all the way down to $80.00 per hour. We also offer a short phone consultation for $50.00which often solves the issue.

I have a sams4s 5200m and after grouping some of the PLU keys the register will no longer send orders to the kitchen printer. Can anyone help?

 
At 10:15 AM, Blogger Dave said...

With the SAM4s 5200M cash register the items that print to the kitchen are controlled by what group they are link to and the group is programmed to go send items linked to it to the kitchen printer or not.

Sounds like maybe you moved some PLU group links to different groups and I would guess that the groups you moved them to are not programmed to send items to the kitchen printer. Page 153 of the manual

I have a ER-5400M and was adding new items and noticed it wasn't charging taxes so I tried fix it and now my register isn't charging taxes on anything!!! Please help

 
At 9:01 AM, Blogger Dave said...

It sounds like you wiped out your tax programming on your SAM4s ER-5200M Cash Register so it will need to be re-entered.

You only have to set the rate once and than you make items taxable or non-taxable so you should not have been programming tax at all in this case. The fact that it does not charge tax on anything now indicates the rate was removed. If charging tax on some items still than all you need to do is make the items that are not being taxed taxable. That register can have 4 tax rates so you will probably be using tax rate 1.

So you can't delete a clerk number in the SAM4s ER-5200M. You will need to reporgram the same one. If not used change the name to Clerk Five for example and remove the code by setting it to zero. If you don't want it used at all change the code number to something only you know.

That is a pretty easy change. You need to just program the register to turn off the setting stopping use with the drawer open. I'm away from a manual right now but pretty sure it is one of the system options programming choices. SAM4s ER-5200M cash register

At 11:58 AM, Blogger Dave said...

You can only bypass by performing an init clear (kind of like re-booting a PC) however that will not fix the problem. You need to figure out where you changed the program to require validation and change it otherwise it will just continue to happen.

You could use price levels that would be $0.25 less than the normal price or you could just use a discount key to deduct $0.25 each time you press it following an item sale.

Not sure about the error 29 however if you are using the free utility software you first must upload the register program even if empty before creating or editing items before you send to the register. At least that is what we have always been told to do first. Is that something you did?

i hqve updated the tax on it several times, but when i attempt a transaction, the tax does not apply

please help

 
At 1:56 PM, Blogger Dave said...

Well probably a simple fix here. The ER-5200M is capable of 4 tax rates. First thing to check is did you change the rate you are really using? If items are taxable by tax rate 1 and you changed tax rate 2 of course that would not work.

Another potential cause is that you have changed the sales tax rate correctly however the items must still be programmed to be taxable in the first place by the same rate. Get people call all the time that have programmed a rate but machine does not charge tax, because they forget to program the items/departments taxable!

Ok wish I had an easy answer but the error is pretty wide open at this point. It could be you have the USB to Serial adapter on the wrong USB port if you have multiple as most PC's do. You could move it from one to another and try each one. You could go into device manager and make sure you have plugged into the correct one that you hast selected in the software.

Also could be your USB to serial adapter? We sell one that we have deployed over and over that works well, we have seen cheaper and more expensive one work and some that don't. We don't try to fix those, just go with what works. We sell them for $50.00

Hi, i have an es 5200m. I need to program clerk buttons but i only have the one clerk button (top right corner) and not the four that are shown on demonstration videos. When i press clerk the alarm sound goes off. The register is obviously programmed to work as is with no clerk sign on (unless one is signed on already). We have a problem with theft so im desperate to make people accountable.

Any help?

 
At 11:44 AM, Blogger Dave said...

You only need the one cashier button for security. You need to program for compulsory log in clerk, pop up, and use secret codes. If you used 4 buttons they would just press someone else button, if you don't make pop up they will just ring under the last cashiers number and of course if not made compulsory it would negate all your efforts. Yes all this is a pain in the rear, your cashiers are going to whine and moan. Don't give in because in our experience it is the one crying and whining the most that is stealing the most. They often will quit soon after you tighten up. For anyone else reading this, if you have employees it is a matter of time before you are stolen from not a matter of "If"

Best to also limit to one cashier if possible? The more people in the drawer even with the codes it can be hard to pin on someone. You may also want to invest in a text inserter to connect keystrokes to text inserted on a DVR system and never tell them!

If the running grand totals look at System options Option #9 and set to reset after Z1 page #113 in my book and that will do it!

What do you mean my 3rd step of set up? The error you encountered is a Reg mode error most often for to many digits it all. Unless something wrong with the machine you have not finished something you started maybe even whatever you did for step #2

Do an init clear and start on the tax again. It is like a re-boot and you won't lose data.

Dave...Help....I found hope in your post with trying to get my Sam4s cash register to charge tax only on the discounted amt. instead of the original amt. But...for clarification can you tell me the step by step process/button to push to make the discount key taxable? I am new with a register. Greatly appreciate your knowledge!! Tammara

 
At 3:59 PM, Blogger Dave said...

Tlburch so you have to make the discount taxable that way as an example if you apply a 15% discount the register will apply a 15% discount plus the tax on the 15% so in effect tax the sale after the discount. Same method for percentage discount or dollar amount, however I know some cites require you to pay tax on dollar amount coupons where they do not on percentage discounts so make sure and check with the state DOR if you have any doubt!

I think the initial manuals were printed wrong. I'm looking at a manual V1.28

Here is the programming

_ _ . _ _ _ ?1 ?2 ?3 TAX1 CASH

?1 = Tax Type
0=Normal Add On Tax
2=Vat TAX

?2 = Enter 0 here for all taxes, unless if you are programming tax 4 as a Canadian GST. (if GST leave another comment and I'll address.

?3 = The number of the tax rate you are programming choice of 1 through 4. If you have only one tax rate always use Tax 1.

So if I were programming a normal tax rate of 8.5% for tax 1 it would be. Key to Program

8.500001 TAX1 CASH

That is it!

It sounds like you may have maybe programmed those buttons as inactive. I would need to know what program code you used. You can take a program scan and it will show you the settings for each department or PLU and if you made it inactive it will show.

Thanks a lot for any help

 
At 10:23 AM, Blogger Dave said...

Helen, the macro programming is Program 1500 - Macro Key Sequence Programming and in my manual it is on page 155 (manuals differ depending on release) In table of contents it is under Misc. Programming.

As far as you cashier log in / log off question I don't belive you can do that. I did not study the manual however here are the way most registers work. You can have cashiers set for POP UP and after every transaction they auto pop up and the next cashier logs in again even if it is the same cashier. So this forces a log in every transaction. The pop up method provides the best security, however many people don't like logging in every transaction. On the SAM4s 5200M you can also have Stay Down cashiers which mean once logged in the cashier stays logged in until they log off. This is the most common set up on the SAM4s ER-5200M register. When set up in the Stay Down mode you must log off before logging on. I'm pretty sure that is the only way to log a new one in is after the log off.

Hi there is there an easy way to change a plu to have two price levels instead of 1? Thanks

 
At 10:47 AM, Blogger Dave said...

Easy is a very subjective term so I will answer by saying some registers program levels easier then the 5200M for sure. With the SAM4s ER-5200M the level programming is done with the modifier function and you then program a new PLU and toggle between them with the Mod keys. Look at the program 70 on page 138.

hi
we have a sam4s er-5200 register i
have changed a plu to be a cash out button for when people want to take money out over eftpos, i currently have a button programmed as eftpos but i can only use it if i have the key turned to X i would like to change it so it could be used in reg mode. i have looked in the manual but could not find the option to change this, the closet option i got was here: http://www.ebs4pos.com/Registers/pdfs/5240mManual.pdf page 101 but could not work it out i kept getting an error when trying to program the N9 part.
i also have a problem with the till changing plu's pricing
when i program a plu it does not change unless i use more then one plu eg:(p-mode 200 sbtl plu17 enter price x/time then select plu20 enter price x/time then cash) but this will change plu17-20 to the same price as 17 even if i enter different prices
i know i have asked alot, any help will be greatly appreciated
thanks.

Hello, the n9 is just to override a pre-set price. If you have this PLU set to pre-set the only way you can enter an amount is in X if you have that setting. Perhaps don't make this item preset. You will find the setting to be in N1 to make it open. hope that helps

I have a sam4s 5200m. I programmed a coupon $5 on PLU. It works fine, but still add to the gross sales when I do a Z reading. My total is $10.61-5coupon = $5.61. So $5.61 s/b my total gross sales. How do I fix it? Thx!

Hi there I need help to remove gst from some plu that I have programmed. Ive done it before but its been a while just wondering if anyone knows where I need to look thank you in advance

You need to tell that PLU in PLU Status programming that it is Hash or Non-Add. Still will count in the drawer but not the sales totals. Pretty easy just look in PLU Status programming SAM4s

 
At 11:49 AM, Blogger Dave said...

To program the SAM4s ER-5200M to stop charging GST you have to change the PLU status programming to select the taxes you wish it to add. It is capable of 4 different rates. Just select the one you wish to apply. If you need support call 1-800-863-2274 or go to Support for SAM4s cash registers we can help at our standard rates if you did not buy the register from us.

"req valid error" On the SAM4s ER-920 means you have programmed your register to require validation after that item. You will have to change the programming of the item or it will continue to happen. Programming and support for SAM4s cash registers

The SAM4s ER-5200M has a charge button by default. If you have taken it off you can replace with function key placements. for support 800-863-2274 regular charges apply. SAM4s ER-5200M programming"

I have spent about 2 weeks studying this manual and programming this thing.....I had it all perfect.. ran all my test... was ready to take it back to the rest.. when all the sudden the thing says (after I had completed a transaction...) warning Req. Valid....
now I know this means I have a validation stuck somewhere where I don't want it... how do I find it

Gena, you have something program for validation required. Could be an item or a payment key. You need to do an init clear to get out of that state and find which item you programmed for Comp Validation and re-program. It will continue to happen until you find and fix it.

Hi Dave,
I have a Sam4s SPS-530
How do I program a 20% off discount key?

At 9:54 AM, Blogger Dave said...

The discount key is programmed under the function key programming. They can be pre-set, open, taxable or not, item or sale. The programming is lead through and pretty easy.

We do have tech support available for a fee if you did not buy the register from us at 800-863-2274

Hi my Sam 4s er5200m would not send orders to the kitchen printer today. It printed twice at the register but nothing went to the kitchen printer. I checked the manual but don't know how to fix this. Please help. Thank you Mary

The 5200M printed the kitchen order back to the register because it lost the kitchen printer. Could be as simple as kitchen printer is turned off, could be a cable issue. It prints back at the register so you know it did not find the kitchen printer. We can trouble shoot this for you for our normal service rates at 800-863-2274

Hi I am a new owner of a buisness and I would like to erase the user defined logo all together. I am a Mac user and do not have a Lc or the cord to connect to the register. Is there a way to just erase it internally.

 
At 5:01 PM, Blogger Dave said...

Yes you can program the register to use a text logo instead of the graphic one. Easy fix. If you need support we are available for a fee at 800-863-2274

I have a 5200m and want to program a Credit card Tender button, how is this done?

 
At 3:06 PM, Blogger Dave said...

The ER-5200M already has a credit tender button by default unless you have removed it. You can add it back on with the function key location programming.

We offer support for a fee and can walk you through programming your SAM4s cash register you can call us at 800-863-2274 to arrange for support.
