How to Reset a Samsung Cash Register

by James Clark; Updated September 26, 2017

A Samsung electronic cash register can be manually reset if the machine ever locks up. Rather than clear all the data in your cash register, which could require a lot of your valuable time to reprogram with tax settings, product stock numbers and pricing, a clear reset may get your register working again.

Step 1

Disconnect the cash register from the power source. The register must be unplugged at least 10 minutes for a clear reset.

Step 2

Insert the operator's key in the lock on the control panel and turn the key to the "P" setting.

Step 3

Press and hold the "Subtotal" key.

Step 4

Reconnect the power while continuing to press the "Subtotal" key.

Step 5

Turn the key to the "REG" setting and wait for the register to print a receipt tape.
