If you see this indicator this can mean one of two things. There is no memory back up batteries loaded in the cash register. The batteries loaded in the unit are dead. To clear this sign just press the AC/C key.


Whenever the low battery indicator appears on the display, load a set of 2 new AA batteries as soon as possible.

Make sure to keep the power cord of the cash register plugged in whenever you replace the batteries.

If there is a power failure or you unplug the cash register when the indicator appears, you will lose all of your sales data and setting and the till will have to be rebooted from scratch.

+ SE-G1 - My till is frozen and cannot make any Transactions?

If your till is frozen and you cannot make any transactions but the till still bleeps when pressing any buttons or has been set up incorrectly. You will most likely have to hard reset the till.

Hard Resetting will incur switching off the till by turning the key to off mode, unplugging the till from the mains and taking out the batteries from the till underneath the till receipt reel.

This will have to be left for at least 5 -10 minutes, mainly for the fact of allowing the internal memory and the till itself to drain power.

After 10 minutes:

  1. Place the batteries back into the compartment behind the receipt reel.
  2. Then plug the till back in the mains but make sure the till key is still in off mode.
  3. When you turn the power on via the mains, the till will print a receipt asking for the language country code(For UK, please press 0 and the CA/AMT TEND) button (If the register does not ask you for a language country code, please carry on by inputting the date).Once pressed the register will ask you to input the date in 2 digit form (day/month/year).

(no need to press CA/AMT TEND when done, will automatically prompt you for next step)

  1. The till will print another receipt to ask to input the time. (If you are resetting till after 12pm, please input the time in 24-hour format.

The till will print a receipt to confirm that this is complete.

You can now turn the key to REG mode and take transactions.

If there is no digital display or backlight for the till, then a Hard reset would be advised. If the problem persists depending how old the till is, you can take the till back to the dealer you bought it from under their warranty otherwise if not, we can locate a nearby dealer to you to try and fix the issue.

But the callout will be chargeable to you.


Hard Resetting your cash register will cause you to lose your sales and programming data and will have to be re-programmed again.
