Am running windows7 and when i try to add a form with 21" width and 30.50" height my form is not added.

The form width you are trying to create is wider than the T6215 is able to print on. The maximum page width that you can print is 13.6 inches, if you try to create a custom size paper wider than 13.6" Windows will not show you this form within the T6215 printer driver. As you can not physically print 21" wide you do not need to define a paper size this wide. Simply create a paper size which reflects the maximum print width or 13.6" You will then be able to print the maximum width the T6215 is capable of and also see this form in the printer driver.

Star TSP 100 do not print in access 2003, access said is over the 22.75" limit


I hope you have solved your problem in the mean time (9 months ago!).

I just bought the same printer and ran into the same problem. After looking on the internet for a solution and finding none I read the software manual a couple of times again and came up with this solution.

Access is right when it claims that the report's length is over the 22.75'' limit. The paper size of the 72 mm x Receipt is 72 mm wide and 3,000 mm tall; 22.75 being 577.85 mm. This means that the selected paper size is more than 5 times too tall.

The simplest solution is to choose the 72 mm x 200 mm paper size.

Next you need to go to the properties of your printer (Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes > Star TSP100 Cutter (TSP143)). Select Printer > Properties. In the Properties dialog select the Device Settings tab. Under Installable Options, set the Paper Type to Receipt. Setting the paper type to Receipt will cause the pages to have a variable length.

While you're there you might set the Page Cut Type to No Cut and set the Document Cut Type to Partial Cut.

Works like a charm for me.

If you really want you can even add Access's favorite paper length to the list of paper sizes. To do that you need to go to My Computer > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. The best way to go there is to use the Windows Explorer or something similar. Under the File menu in Windows Explorer you'll find an option Server Properties. The Print Server Properties Dialog Box is shown. On the Forms tab you'll see a Forms on: <ComputerName> list. Locate the Star paper size of e.g. 72 mm x 200 mm and select it in the list. Once you check the Create a new form check box you can give it a new name. I called mine 72 mm x Access and modified the paper height to the 22.75'' or 577.8 mm.

However, I ran some tests and it doesn't seem like this last step is really necessary. Even with the 72 mm x 200 mm paper size selected for my Access report I printed tickets that were 5,000 mm tall without any problem.

How do i clean the print head to a good printout

This is a Thermal Printer, which means it uses tiny hot wires to create dots on special paper to form the characters. There may be little to nothing you can do to make output better. You can try unplugging the unit from the power source and using a cotton swab dipped in alcohol to clean any paper fibers or residue from the face of the print head. More likely than not however is the possibility that you will have to have the print head replaced in order to restore crisp printouts. These print heads, much like the older dot-matrix print heads, have a limited lifetime because of the way they function.

Re: How to make a enlarged document

In some printers there is a enlarge document printing support. Like Konica Minolta heavy duty printers or copiers. They support custom paper size in printer properties and also can support a large paper form a paper roll.
You are using inkjet printer so I feel there in no limit of paper size so you can print a custom size paper what you want.
Before printing just go to the properties of the printer and add a new custom size in paper menu then put that size paper into printer hope it’ll work. You must change the paper size from the application from where you are printing that paper.

Trouble printing a thicker form

I have come accross this problem on a number of sites. It may be the Paper Out sensor. It works by emitting light from one half of the sensor reflectiong it of the paer and picking it up with the other half of the sensor. When no paper is present, the light cannot reflect and hense a paper out error is reported. I have seen this error occur when paper with dark backing ( like that for bank and tax forms ) is used.
