We had a power outage and now when we try to clock in our Amano pix-55 continuously prints the time until the time card is pulled out. I have tried turning the auto print off and then back on again, and also pressed the reset button on the back but neither have helped. How do we get it to just put the time once? ============================================================================== REPLY: It's possible there is a problem or dirt on the paper detect sensor. With power disconnected, try to blow with can of compressed air. If the issue returns then it needs repair. 800 896 7035

We have a PIX-55 time clock it is printing the date fine but the time has "dots" missing and we can not tell the times the employees clock in and out. ================================================================================== REPLY: You can switch to another print style. See manual - http://tkb.amano.com/phpkb/file.php?id=114 If time still does not show, then it will need servicing.

My Amano PIX-55 can print Year, Month and date. But not printing time. How can I resolve this problem ? ============================================================================== REPLY: Reselect your print format. If this does not resolve the issue, there may be a sharp fold on the brown data cable behind the ink cartridge.

Is this unit self-totaling? ================================================================================== REPLY: Unfortunately, no but there are other clock models and also time guardian that will produce totals. Please call 800 367 6649.
Comment By Terri Fine - Thu, Apr 25th, 2013 10:59 AM
Our PIX-55 will jump an hour even after we have reset it and in March when time changed it was finally on the right time until a couple of weeks ago and it jumped or sprang ahead an hour. So it seems to always be an hour ahead. Do you have any suggestions ============================================================================== REPLY: Possibly your clock still has incorrect day light savings dates. Should be 3/10 and 11/3 for this year. See video to update your clock - http://tkb.amano.com/phpkb/article.php?id=24

Our pix-55 clock just stopped working, blank screen so no error codes... is there something we can do to reset it or is it time for a new one?

We had an extended power outage and it is now printing an error code. ’12FEBRCV’D2012. I believe this will be settled with the time resets. My question is, where is and how do I change the battery so I can avoid this in the future? Reply: There is no battery to avoid this but you will need a surge protector or a UPS device.

my pix-55 will not print- has a code showing Prt E4, I unplugged it for a few seconds and plugged it back in it worked fine for only one punch. Help!!! Reply: http://tkb.amano.com/phpkb/article.php?id=217
Comment By Cynthia Powers - Fri, Feb 10th, 2012 10:36 AM
our time was printed with unprinted lines through it - so we figured we needed a new ink ribbon (it had been awhile) - ordered new ribbon, replaced according to directions - still not printing right - checked brown ribbon behind print head, checked that ribbon was over print foot, plastic shield seems to be ok - anything else I can check? Was purchased in 2004 - so it’s not under warranty. Please advise. Reply: We are not understanding your statement "checked brown ribbon behind print head, checked that ribbon was over print foot". Normally if the PIX55 is not printing properly after replacing the ribbon, it may need to be factory reset or the brown ribbon has a sharp fold or crease which is a sign of damage. Please call us for more info, 800 367 6649.

We have an Amano PIX-55, our company time is 4 minutes behend the Amano atomic time. We would like to set the Amano clock to match the company time.

Question: We have Amano PIX=55, for some reason it doesn’t automatically print when timecard is inserted. It does print when we push the black bar underneath the timecard. How do we get it to print automatically? Reply: Cheri, here are the steps to follow to turn the Auto-Print feature on: 1. Press the PROGRAM button for 2 seconds, then release. (screen reads "dAte P1"). 2. press the CHANGE button 4 times (screen reads: "Ot hr P5") 3. Press the ENTER button once (screen reads: "Prnt 11") 4. Press the CHANGE button 3 times (screen reads: "APrt 14") 5. Press the ENTER button once. (screen will read either "P:5 on" or "off") 6. Press the CHANGE button until the screen reads "P on". 6. Press the ENTER button once. (screen will read "APrt 14") 7. Press the PROGRAM button once to exit. The clock should now print in the automatic mode.
