Question about Epson TM-U295 Matrix Printer

Tm-u295 firmware problem?

I bought 3 refurbished epson tm-u295 slip printers with serial interfaces and only one of them is printing from my windows xp station.

I built the cables myself with the help of an expert on this site and tested them all with working printers and they work fine. The first of these printers that I tested worked well with no hickups. But the other two are not printing anything from the computer with the same cable, driver etc.

I ran the self-test by holding and releasing the release button while turning on the power to the printers and they all print. When I run the test, the first printer(the working one), prints "Version 1.08 ESC/POS" followed by its interface info.
The other 2 printers print "Version 2.01 EP" followed by all its characters but no interface info.
All the printers have the same DIP switch settings(all switches are set to off) and the port configuration correspond.
I'm using Windows XP sp2 with Epson Advanced Printer Driver ATM_304E.
The company I bought the printers from don't seem to be much help.
Any additional questions or advice would be welcome.
Thanks.

    Where do you get the .bin files? 


    Do you have instructions or a link to some regarding upgrading/downgrading the firmware on these Epson TM printers?


    Thanks

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.

You need to adjust the print head spacing. This is a lever along the side inside the printer by the print head. It just move the head closer or further away from the paper. The closer it is the harder it strikes the bottom pages and it should print darker on them. If you get it too close it can catch the paper and cause a jam so you have to give it a bit more space. You may end up redoing this if you use a different brand or type of nc form paper. Just open the cover look for a lever on the side and lick it a notch (should show circles so go to the smaller one) and try printing. You might have to waster a few pages before it behaves but this is all you need to do.

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 on Windows XP with serial


you need to use the printer cable that was design for the printer. if you don't have the cable anymore, then you have to take the commercial cable apart and reconfigure in accordance to page 43 of the manual call outs.

Besides the cable, the printer software is only good for Windows 2000. Windows XP will not work unless Epson provide you with the printer driver. (which I did not see on the website).

all in all if you must use this printer with Windows Xp. you need to create a file in Autoexec.bat to enable the printer and allow the USB to connect to the printer.

that is going take time to do. if you need help on that. please post the request here.

Thanks
