The message Urgent - Battery Low appears and your franking machine will not print mail.


One of the two internal batteries is running low and approaching end of life.


The battery is part of the franking machine security device that protects your postage funds. If your battery is allowed to expire, you will lose this information.

Press Clear / Back to clear the message and allow you to run mail temporarily.

If the error remains, reboot the franking machine:

  1. Unplug the power cord.
  2. Wait one to three minutes.
  3. Plug the power cord directly back into a wall outlet. Check that the wall outlet is functioning correctly.

If the battery message returns after rebooting, contact customer support.
