Cash register preparation

1289This section guides you through the important tasks to be done prior to using the touch cash register:



Important notifications:

Always give the cash register 2-3 hours to acclimate so that no moisture condenses inside the device.

Leave the Dotypos MOBILE (8" cash register) switched off and charge it for at least 4 hours continuously before use. So the battery can be formatted.

The plastic wrap with the initial cash register text display can be stuck to any other transparent protective wrap to be used for protecting the display. You can also remove this wrap from the display without worries.

The best way to plug the touch cash register is into a separate 220V outlet.

We recommend using an Ethernet (LAN) cable to connect any printers, which will not be connected by USB cables directly to the cash register, to the active element (router).

Use the Wi-Fi connection only if you have a stable wireless network with strong coverage for the installed cash register and printers. Do not use a Wi-Fi network shared with other users, such as restaurant guests or neighboring establishments.

To print properly from Dotypos MOBILE (8" cash registers), disable the Android system function Standby intelligent power saving. The procedure for disabling this function is described in this chapter.

After first switching the Android system on, if it does not start (the Dotypos logo is displayed for a long time), hold down for about 15 seconds the POWER button and the cash register will switch off. Now switch the cash register on again and it will start smoothly. Follow the same procedure if the cash register shows the text BOOT MODE or displays Chinese characters after being switched on.
