    Port and cable are the same as I used for old printer. Remember

    my system is DOS with commands, not Windows!

    Thanks for trying.

Can i install two(2) EPSON TM-U220 printer on a terminal?


You can have as many printers as you want but each has to have a port defined. When you installed the driver, you must have defined both as one printer and now it's confused the system. Uninstall ALL printers and start again making sure each has a unique port.

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.

Did you change the dip switches? I believe that for the serial printer to work with ethernet, you need to have switches 2 and 4 on bank 2 set to on.

Epson TM-U220 Matrix Printer not printing in WinXPP


hi basiime

possible issue is port configuration. if the generic text driver works, apd driver should work too.

what may be happen is that when you install the apd driver the other printer drivers that you have were still using the same port that your apd driver were using. example, you have generic txt assigned to lpt1 and then the apd were assigned on the same port, this is were you get the trouble.

what you must do is, first, check any printer driver that you have using the lpt, say for example, you generic text is using lpt1, when you install the apd driver set it to lpt2. apd drivers will create a new port normally called esdprt. try to use that port but if that will not work reassigned the port of your apd driver to lpt2 printer port then uncheck bi-directional support. from there you should be able to print..

hope that resolves your issue.. =)
