Sharp ER-A410 in short supply! Make that NO SUPPLY!

Sharp ER-A410 cash register

The Sharp ER-A410 cash register has been a best seller now for quite awhile. Currently (July, 2013) however the Sharp ER-A410 cash register is on back order from the Sharp company. I have tried every distributor we know of in the US and everyone is sold out. Everyone we have spoken to regarding this problem claims that Sharp will have more in the US in mid to late September. Given this news should you need another ER-A410 in the short term you will either have to wait it out or switch to a different model or even a different make?

In the Sharp family there are a couple choices. The first is the Sharp ER-A347 cash register which comes out of the box with 20 departments, has both a receipt and journal printer and a nicer display than the ER-A420 register. The ER-A347 can not have a Datacap Twintran credit card interface like the A420. The A347 also used 2.25" thermal paper instead of 44mm thermal like the 420.

The next choice is the Sharp ER-A520 cash register, little larger then the A410, receipt and journal, standard 2 line display, large cash drawer and will interface with the Datacap Twin Tran.

You can also look at the SAM4s brand of cash registers which have lots of very popular models. Need help selecting a replacement model? call us at 1-800-863-2274

Sharp cash register keyboard templates

It is very easy to change the keyboard on your Sharp cash register when you have a keyboard template. You can find Sharp cash register keyboard template for download, which will allow you to change and re-print when ever you like or just when you make changes. Don't pay a cash register dealer big bucks for a print out and do it yourself.

If you can't find the model you need try printing one from a model that is close and see if it fits. You will be surprised how many keyboards are the same, however in case it does not print then you might be able to alter the template you downloaded.

Sharp ER-A320 registers are gone

Sharp cash registersOn Friday the 12th we sold our last Sharp ER-A320 cash register. Bitter sweet day because that was one of the best selling Sharp cash registers we have ever sold however compared with the newest machines it was quite dated. Sharp has still not come out with a specific replacement model for it yet.

When Sharp ended the ER-A320 they ended production of any register that uses bond receipt paper. All of the current Sharp models use thermal paper.

We still have supplies like the IR-90 ink roller and the 44mm bond paper as well as the keyboard cover. If you need help programming we do offer phone support for a fee 1-800-863-2274
