SX580 programming/using #Dept for more than 5 Depts

Postby GennyFX on Tue Sep 26, 2017 12:31 am

Hey everyone,

I have managed to program the first 5 Depts by using the main DEPT keys.
These now show the correct names when i am in 'R' mode.

However, I am sure that I can program and use more DEPT's with this cash register?

I have tried to program it the same way for the #Dept's as I have done for the individual DEPT keys, but it does not program the same unless i am missing something?

I do not have a manual to refer to, so if anyone can shed any light on this, I would be extremely grateful :)

Cheers in advance to you all. :D

Yayyyy :)

Ok, I managed to suss out how to program all the other #DEPT's.

(TTL) > (ENT/RLS) > XX (= number of dept) > (DEPT#) > XXXXXXXXXXXXX (= name of dept) > (CHECK STUB)

So i now have a load of Departments programmed.... However, We are now having difficulty in using them!!!

If we wish to use the main Dept keys (Dept 1, Dept21, Dept 3, Dept 4):

We simply key in the price - press the appropriate Dept key and all is well.

But when we try to use any of the other dept keys, we get an error.

I am sure this is simply us entering the price and dept incorrectly. We have tried various ways, but the error remain.

Once again, any help with this would be greatly appreciated :)

OK.... we have now managed to use the dept's but not in the way we imagined.

To use Depts no 5 upwards;

We have to: Enter the Price > (ENT/RLS) > XX ( = the department number) > (DEPT#).

However to enter the number for the Dept, you have to use the numbered price keys and not the alha/numeric keypad on the right.

We would like to be able to use the alpha/numeric keys to enter the Depts...

Is this possible?

Again, any help extremely appreciated :)

If they don't work now then they probably never will. Different keys do different things and it's hard coded.

Cheers for the reply :)

Ah well, it would have been nice to have more than the 4 DEPT keys. I was hoping to put a DEPT map under the cover and utilise that area of the keypad.

I suppose we can't moan... at least it works :)
