Does it have a manual insert for the paper?
If it does, try putting the paper in that.
If not, or if that doesn't work, I recommend trying to reinstall the printer and drivers.

If that also doesn't solve your problem, please post back.

I am trying to print my guest receipts and it is only printing out a quarter of the sheet with no ink.


hello, lets see if we can seperate problem with computer and printer, try running printers self test, i am curios if the machine will print properly, turn printer off, then hold paper feed button and turn machine on, paper will feed and print, once the first test pass, if you want to print the rest, press paper feed button, and machine will print and cut paper, this test is rather a little long, but it will give you info regarding paper feed, and cutting as well as impressions. if paper is dragging, check to see if the paper in machine is in correctly, you might want to check this out first, if the paper is in correctly, then problem is feeding, this is a little hard to clean, but you might want to try some isoproply alcohol and put some on the lead in paper, just enough to get paper wet, and try to allow machine to feed in, or maybe, if paper is already feeding in wet some area before going into machine with alcohol, and press feed button, and allow the paper to feed thru. tear off paper and try the printer test again. if still fails then machine has a problem and will need service.

Does epson tm-t88iiip have a ribbon


No. thermal printers do not use ribbons or ink cartridges. They have thermal heads that heat up and use that heat to print on the specially treated, heat sensitive paper rolls. If the printer has stopped printing, check to see if the paper is thermal and loaded correctly (shiny side facing the front when it feeds).

Stops feeding paper at start of printing and repeatedly states there is a paper jam. why wont it feed and how do I get paper out as it is a sealed unit. initially paper was feeding too far thr so printing...


With out knowing the make and Model of the copier it can be difficult!
Suggest that you clean the rollers that pick up the paper with a clean lint free cloth and water.Ensure that you unplug the machine from the power point first.

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

DEC 29 86 m


m = 0, 1, 48 or 49 cuts paper










SELECT CUT MODE AND CUT PAPER ASCII GS V m n



feeds paper and executes full or partial cut. HEX 1D 56 m n

DEC 29 86 m n

m = 65 or 66 feeds paper to (cut position + [n x (vertical motion unit)]) and cuts the paper
n = 0 to 255
