I am unable to print with the printer TM-T88 III. the status of this printer is 'Not Available'. OS is Xp , and i install the driver APD_412.e. Please advice, george


Your printer is probably set to Off Line. You'll need to go to Start-Printers and Faxes, and in the new window right-click the Epson TM-T88III icon and from the popup menu select the Use Printer Online setting.
If this doesnt work check to see if the USB cable is loose both at the PC end and at the printer end. While you're at it, see if the printer shows any signs of life (any lights on, any messages on the LCD)? There just may be an issue of loose power cable, so you may want to check that also.

TM-T88III print speeds and other issues


Try setting both switch 1-7 and 1-8 to ON for 38400 baud, set switch 1-2 to OFF to give a 4k buffer, set switch 2-5 to OFF to release the busy buffer at 256 bytes, set switches 2-3 and 2-4 to ON & OFF for medium print density and OFF & ON for dark print density or OFF & OFF for normal print density.

Also remember that the thermal TM-T88III also prints faster when the print head is cooler and slower when it heats up. The print speed is adjusted automatically depending on the voltage applied and head temperature. So make sure your power supply is providing a steady 24VDC at full load and has enough capacity to provide a peak of 7.7A in full speed mode. If you are using the printer in high temp and humidity you might want to swap the unit out for a Star Printer which performs faster and uses the same protocol or use a cooling fan.

Also make sure you use a good quality paper and that the humidity is within range at 10 – 90% RH although the paper performance will be greatly diminished at higher humidity levels.


Specifications:

High-speed = Approx. 150 mm/s {5.9"/s} max.; 47.2 lps, max. (3.18 mm {1/8"} feed);
35.5 lps, max. (4.23 mm {1/6"} feed, at 24 V, 28°C {82°F}, density level 1).

Low-power: Approx. 16.5 lps (4.23 mm feed {1/6"}); 70 mm/s {2.76"/s}
Ladder bar code: Approx. 42 mm/s {approx. 1.7"/s}

High-speed mode: Mean: Approx. 1.8A Peak: Approximately 7.7A @24VDC
Low-power mode: Mean: Approx. 1.2A Peak: Approximately 6.6A @ 24VDC

Operating temp = 5 to 45°C {41 to 113°F}
Operating Humidity = 10% - 90% RH

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.
