Hello Sanjaypk,

Printer problems can be a real headache.

This definitely sounds like a driver issue because you are able to print a test page so that tells us the computer is successfully communicating with the printer port. What is happening here is the Computer is communicating with the printer through the Operating System (Windows or Apple etc) but the driver IN the software for the POS is not. You didn't mention the computer Operating System you are using or the POS software but the dates of each are ctitical.

The tm-u220d is a high speed printer so make sure you set your LPT1 settings for High Speed Bi Directional printing. (You do this in the Printers Configuration area.)

As far as a driver, check the dates of the driver and look for updates. If you like what I've told you so far then let me know and I'll be glad to assist you further.

Best Regards and Best Luck!

SOURCE: 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.. =)

SOURCE: Connecting Epson TM U220D printer with Laptop (having Windows XP)

If you have the Cables2GO USB to Parallel converter, it is a pain to get working.  Go to Radio Shack and buy the GigaWire USB to Parallel.
Then once plugged in, go the printer that will be using the converter.  Go to the printer properties, select the PORTS tab.  Select the 'VIRTUAL PRINTER PORT FOR USB'.  That worked for me!

The Epson works fairly well with XP. It is to be connected to
a parallel port, usually LPT1
using an IEEE certified parallel printer cable. The computer BIOS
setting is best set for standard parallel port, SPP, bi-directional port
or similar. If possible, do not set it to ECP or EPP or ECP & EPP.

The only native driver for the printer is on the Windows CP CD. Install
using the Add Printer wizard.

The Epson LQ-860 drivers, and a few others, can be used. Using these
drivers, you will discover that the printer actually has some resident
fonts (in printer ROM) that are not accessible from the Stylus
driver. However, with this driver, graphics printing quality is
compromised.

Windows 9x drivers _cannot be used_.

Let us know.

Epson POS driver will not install on a Win2K3 machine due to the InstallShield Wizard w/c checks if your running XP/2K or not.

Download the driver from EPSON POS site & extract the contents first on an XP machine.(Installing the driver will create a C:\Epson folder where ACTUAL driver is extracted).
