Installing ub-u05 interface card

Hi,

We ordered a couple of TM-t88IV printers and they arrived without an interface card that allows you to connect them via a USB cord to our computers. The network cards have arrived, but I cannot discover any way to get the printer housing off to install them. Is there a trick to getting into the space successfully that will allow me to install the ub-u05 interface card?

Thanks,
Patricia Furr

You should not need to take a housing off you simply need to unscrew the parralel port at the back and then insert the other cards hope this helps

How can I set up Wifi or bluetooth connectivity?


Hi, I've looked at all TM receipt printers no such model. You may need to purchase the interface board to make it Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. If you can provide more info maybe I can help you. How old is the printer? These things change often, New technology it's outdated the day it hits the shelves. Not really but you get the gist.

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.

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.

Printer not responding message on epson TM-T88iv


You must first uninstall the printer from the Control Panel. Reboot the PC. Then reinstall the printer with the printer NOT connected. Then connect the printer and allow Windows to detect the printer and load its drivers. When you get a message in the right bottom corner of the screen "The new HW has been installed and is ready for use" then fireup the word processor and set this printer as default printer and start printing. All the best to you.

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
