First check in windows device manager in case the device is not listed or has been disabled (right-click on my computer, click properties and then device manager) Go through the windows hardware troubleshooter and see if you get any joy here is the link to the manual if you need it; http://www.office.xerox.com/userdoc/P3130/pdfs/user.pdf.en and here is the link for driver downloads and updates; http://www.support.xerox.com/go/results.asp?Xtype=download&prodID=3130&Xlang=en_US&Xcntry=USA&source=XOG&prodName=Phaser%203130 I believe that updating/reinstalling your driver should solve the problem, if you get no luck in windows - often other software can interfere with driver files. If you have access to another machine, then try installing it on that using updated drivers and see if you have the same problem. On your machine, depending on the printer connection option you are using, try a different port and/or cable. DOS is not looking for problems in the same way that windows does, so you may find a minor connection issue is the problem. Page 114 of the manual suggests checking that bi-directional communication is turned on in the driver software - DOS would not require this to be on, but windows does. Page 131 - if you have the DOS remote control panel installed, try uninstalling this in case it is causing a clash, although none appear to have been reported. Hope this helps :)

WHY DOT MATRIX PRINTER NOT PRINTING DOS BASE PRINTS


It can't.
DOS printing need LPTx parallel port because DOS don't understand/support USB.

YOU can share the printer with windows printer driver, then
go to CMD prompt
Type
Net use lpt1 \\<computername>\<printersharename>
Then print DOS job to LPT1

NOT PRINTING OUT OF DOS PROGRAM


The problem is, the DOS program tries to print to LPT1, which is your parallel port. We need to redirect this to your USB Port. First, you have to set up printer sharing: Go to Control Panel | Printers | Your printer and share the printer. Assuming that you share it with the share name "MYPRINTER" and the computer is called "MYCOMPUTER", then type go to Start | Run and type in: NET USE LPT1: \\MYCOMPUTER\MYPRINTER /PERSISTENT:YES That should do the trick, unless there's a driver problem, which is unlikely for a dot matrix printer. If that doesn't work, let me know and I can troubleshoot further.

"how to print settings for


If you are talking about one of the TallyCom print servers there is a small blue test button on the side of the box, press this when the print server is connected to a printer that is online. If you press the test button for over 9 seconds the print server will be reset to factory settings. If you want to print from DOS to a network printer as I recall you have two options; 1) Install the printer in Windows and share it, you can then print to the share name 2) Use "NET USE" command in DOS to map a local port to a network port, this is nessesaey if you can not print to LPT1 or COM1 from the application. For help of NET USE go to DOS and use the help options.

The printer can't handle the data it received and flush it out of its buffer. Goto Menu->Settings->Postscript Settings and turn "Print PostScript Erro" on. When the same print job prints, you should get a page printed out telling you what the printer doesn't like. You may also want to try forcing the printer into Postscript mode. Your PS file probably contains a PJL to set the device to PS mode before it prints. When the printer expects PCL data and received PS data(or vise versa), you can get this behaviour

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.

USB printing through DOS mode


Google for DOS PRINT USB, and you'll find some utilities that do this.

Or, you can include some commands in your batch file.

First, get the device name:

In a DOS window, type NET VIEW ComputerName (or use 127.0.0.1)

Once you know the printer share name, you use it in a batch file.

NET USE lpt1: \\ComputerName\ShareName /Persistent:Y

This captures the print queue to the shared printer.

You must also go into Printer Properties/Advanced/Print Processor and set it to TEXT

Your copy, print and other commands will work.
