Hey, @Eureka_Jack

 

I had a chance to run this by our Retail team, who hasn't seen any other reports of the recent update affecting how your cash drawer operates. They did mention that if you see the "no sale button" as greyed out, then that means your printer is not connected. If the till is plugged into the printer, then this would explain why the till is not opening as the printer controls the opening of the drawer. 

 

The Bluetooth may have been interrupted, which can cause this to happen. Typically restarting the iPad, and/or resetting the connections should resolve the issue. If not, please let me know as I can verify your account and take a closer look.

Hi Peter,

Many Thanks for your quick reply.

The POS works once at start of the day then 'No sale' button greys out for rest of the day.

The only way I can open the till (star mPOP) for the rest of the day is via mPOP utility app, which works just fine.

The POS works once at start of the day then 'No sale' button greys out for rest of the day.

Does this happen after a specific amount of transactions? Is there a regular pattern of when the button greys out?

 

If you're using the mPop, would you mind trying these steps?

 

  • To start, ensure that there is paper in the receipt printer. If this is empty, other functions of the cash drawer will not work.
  • Test the cash drawer by tapping 'Test cash drawer' in the Store > Hardware > Bluetooth Receipt Printer menu of the POS app. Gently pull on the drawer after you hear it click open. If it resists, there may be something stuck inside.
  • If the load on top of the hardware exceeds 8kg (17.6 lbs.), the cash drawer may not be able to open. The very front of the cash drawer (over the LED display) is also not designed to bear weight.

The Cash drawer requires a connection to the receipt printer in order to operate. If the cash drawer is not "popping" open when a cash sale is made, then check the receipt printer connection. The cord that comes with the cash drawer to connect to the printer may look the same but have labels on either end of the cord-marked printer and cash drawer. It is crucial that these are plugged into the correct device.

Hi Peter, Thanks for your advice & reply.
The till and printer are working just fine using Mpop utility ver.1.7.0 app
as stated earlier. It's only using since upgrading the Shopify POS app
newest version 5.51.0 has the problem occurred.
I have tried all points you kindly mentioned - till roll supply, foreign
object etc.

Still greyed out 'no sale button'
