Question about Epson TM-T88III (C420863)

1 Answer

Connection My Epson TM 888III prints sometimes and not others. I think there may be a problem with the connection, I changed cables and it still does not work. Sometimes when the cash drawer is closed hard it starts spitting out receipts that did not print earlier. It will work one day and then not the other. For example it worked fine 1/2 of today and then stopped working. Please Help!! Thanks

Try to install the printer in another computer, i suspect your operating system is not working properly or it got virus. to have it working back to normal scanned it with anti virus to remove any viruses that is in your computer.

Epson UB-U03II not working


I had huge issues with my TM-U220. It does not play well with a Centronix-to-USB cable or with Windows 64-bit. I played for AGES to try and get it all to work.

I installed the USB device driver[1] I was able to print the Test Page proving that the connection between Windows and the printer sort of worked, but when I tried printing anything from Unicenta POS, it always failed.

I finally bought a new Centronix-to-USB and a new parallel port card, used Windows 32-bit, and problem solved.

They key is to uninstall everything, including searching through the Registry to delete everything.

Epson TM-U220D. Parallel to USB connection. Which drivers should I install?


Hi Ali

The problem by doing this is that not all Parallel to USB cables work right out of the box with your equipment.

What you need to do first is make sure that your computer sees the device through the cable. Then when it prompts you for the drivers for the printer install the driver set (parallel) the connection should not matter at this point. However the step of the computer detecting the device first is very important.

I hope this helped.

Unable to install Epson TM-U220B[U220 with UB-U02III usb interface] on Windows 7 AND XP!


Hi!

Are you using a third party USB adapter or a USB interface? On the self test page that you printed does it say USB connection or something that will say about USB? or does it say parallel or serial connection? try to check the dip switches setting if its configured properly. visit epsonexperts.com site for more info.

Epson TM 88II not working with Win XP SP2


Are you confident this is using a parallel interface?

The ones I used to work with used a 25pin to 9pin serial connection. The 25 pin connection on the printer is the same as a parrallel port on a PC, but if you think of a normal parallel lead the printer should use a 'centronics' connector to conform to this. I think you may need a 25pin to 9pin serial lead which aren't very common but plenty of people should still make them.

What do I need to hook up TM-T88IV to my computer to print out receipts?


Well according to EPSON the ways you can connect your printer to a computer are RS-232C, IEEE 1284 parallel; RS-485; high-speed USB; 10/100Base-T/TX; wireless. However the way they get you is you have to buy the interface from them. Contact EPSON and see what the cheapest one is. If you're only using it from one computer just a simple parallel cable will do the trick. If you live in the Washington DC area feel free to contact me and if you send me a picture of the back of the printer I can tell you what kind of connection it is. I'm at http://www.inovagent.com

Epson t88iii will not print


I would like to say sorry to you I got my serial port mixed up with the parallel port. I have resolved the problem, it was a DIP switch change which needed to be set. If anybody can not get their computer to communicate with the printer then I would suggest they download the Epson Technical reference guide and read it thoroughly, but only use the guides for your method of connection which is dependent on your model of printer. I found that for a baud rate of 38400 DIP switch SW 1 numbers 7 & 8 should be switched to ON .I hope this helps some else.

My Epson R1800 keeps resetting itself


You have done all the usuall checks, but you may have a usb power problem, try the printer without any other usb peripheral in and see if it stays connected. If not, then the usb connection or workings in the printer may be faulty and keeps disconecting, hence the bing bong as it re connects to windows. You may have faulty hardware, leave the printer disconnected from usb and mains for 15 mins or so then try again.
