Tried custom paper size in XP and different emulations on the printer with no luck. Works great in win98 on both Genicom printers. Any help would be fantastic!!!

There may be a number of causes for the problem you are seeing. There are a number of places which may hold the origin to the page length problem you are seeing, in order of precedence these are;

  1. The page size set in the software package printing the 6 x 4.25 cards
  2. The page size set the printer driver printing to the printer
  3. The page size set on the printer
I would recommend the follwoing;

  1. Set the form length on the printer to 6 inches (i am assuming this is the length of the card)
    The form length can be set through the menu and is normally set in lines (normaly the print size is set to 6 LPI) so the form length should be set to 33 lines
  2. Create a custom form size in SERVER PROPERTIES on the Windows XP machine to match the form size you are using.
    Ensure you select this form size in both PRINTER PROPERTIES and PRINTING PREFERENCES
  3. Try printing some Windows Test pages to see if these respect the page size selected withing the printer driver properties.
If the Windows Test Pages do not print correctly I would recommend checking how you are creating the CUSTOM SIZE form, perhaps create a new form and double check the form properties one it has been saved to confirm these are correct.

Check you are using the correct printer driver for the printer, you should be using the 2265+ printer driver. As a test you may wish to install the GENERIC TEXT printer driver or the EPSON LQ2250 driver, these will be included in the Windows Add Printers Wizard and should print OK to the 2265+.

If the Windows Test Page prints OK I think you would need to look at the software package printing to the printer. Ensure the correct page size is selected here also, perhaps try printing from another software package selecting your custom size form to see if these print correctly.

It is passable your software package is sending escape commands to the printer to call up the page size, I note you say Genicom printers printed ok from Win 98. The 2265+ may not have the same emulations as the Genicom printers.
You can print a menu print on both Genicom (if these are available) and 2265+ and compare the settings on these.

I do not believe the 2265+ has a Genicom emulation as standard, but you may be able to load an alternative version of firmware into the 2265+ which provides the Genicom emulation. If the data going to the printer contains Genicom Escape command to set form length this may resolve the issue.
You may need to contact your TallyGenicom support department for the firmware (I think it may be called 7265+ firmware)
If you are able to provide Hex Dumps of the data to the TallyGenicom support people they should be able to say what is going wrong with the form length setting.

How to add custome page size to tallygenicom 6306 printer with windows xp i have to use width 15in height 12 please rplay soon


Ok, I think the problem you are having is when printing from a version of Windows, basically the problem is the 6306 can only print 13.6 Inch Wide, it looks like you are trying to define a paper size 15 inches wide.
As the paper size defined is wider than the capability of the printer, you do not see this paper size within Windows.

The solution to the problem may be much easier than you might imagine as it is very unlikely you actually want to print 15 inches wide, you more than likely want a paper width of less than 13 inches but are including the sprocket holes and margins at the side of the paper.

Simply define a paper size the width of the printable area of the paper, so long as this is less than 13.6 inches you will then be able to select this within Windows.

I have created a custom paper size 14' * 4' but i am unable to select the same paper size to set the page setup.


The maximum paper width the 6306 can print on is 13.6 inches, you will not be able to select a custom size form larger than the printer is capable of handling.Simply set the for size to 13.6 inches or the maximum width you will be printing.

Using Win7 - switches to NLQ mode every time regadless of driver used - Okidata Elite (Microline) 520, Okidata Elite (IBM) or Okidata 520. Tried changing drivers - none other available for Win7. With the...


This is a SNIP of a rather LONG FIX:

Found here:
http://forums.windrivers.com/showthread.php?7080-RESOLVED-Okidata-Microline-184-Turbo

"Just purchased this thing and am running it a machine to print checks with (Win95, p1-200, 48 Mb ram). The Oki dot matrix printers don't give you drivers, they tell you to use the drivers from Win95 disk. Sure... (just lazy if you ask me :-) OK using the Oki Microline 184 IBM Turbo driver the thing works fine, EXCEPT that it *always* prints in NLQ mode no matter what the settings in the control panel, it just switches to NLQ before each print job. So... we switch to a "generic text" driver and it works fine that way EXCEPT that it no longer recognises the custom paper length (8.5" wide X 7" long) Now here's the wierd part... IF I switch back to the win95 driver, re-accept the custom paper size, print a test page (in NLQ of course), switch back to the generic driver, re-accept the the custom paper size, switch the printer to normal (non NLQ), and print it works fine with the custom paper size and non-NLQ mode until the next time it needs to print. The printer remains ON 24/7, so its not reseting itself. It just seems that with the Win95 driver there is no way to set it to print in anything but NLQ AND the generic driver refuses to keep the custom paper sizes in memory. Anyone seen this before? Never came accross this myself. I may just end up sending this thing back and getting an Epson or someting else."

AND THERE IS THIS:
"This is like going back to the dark ages....most of those old impact printers had dip switches to set things like default print quality. Additionally, Oki's usually came in two 'flavors'--plain Oki and IBM Oki. It's important that you install the correct driver between the two options..."

Custem size paper are not creat


am using an Epson LX-300+II dot matrix printer in Windows XP. I am
trying to print checks that are tractor feed 8.0" x 3.66". I added the cusotm
paper size in the print server and it is saved correctly, however, when I try
to print, the print properties dialog does not show the paper size. In fact,
there are many paper sizes in the print manager that do not show up in the
list of available paper sizes.

I have limited option for my TVSE HD-745 Dot


Paper size and pagelength are normal set by the incoming print datastream.

You can usually set this up from within the application you are using to generate the print datastream.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Tally 6212 - Landscape Documents Printed Vertically


You do indeed have problem-- the printer is doing what you are telling it to do changing the print from Portrait to Landscape on a dot matrix printer has the same effect as that on a Laser printer, it rotates the print by 90 degrees.

The correct solution of to define a custom size of paper which is the same size as the paper you are printing on.
If you are using Windows 2000, XP, 2003 etc you can create a Custom Size paper in the following way;

  • Ensure you are logged in with administrtor rights
  • Open the Printers Folder
  • Go to the FILE DROP DOWN MENU
  • Select SERVER PROPERTIES
  • Ensure the FORMS tab is selected
  • Tick the CREATE FORM button
  • Enter a NAME for the form
  • Enter the dimensions (be careful of the units you are using --- best results use inches)
  • Do NOT set margins printable areas etc
  • Click on the SAVE button
One you have created the custom size form you should be able to select this by name in the printer driver properties and the software package you are using.

TallyT2240 Dot Matrix only prints the middle part of the caracters


It sounds like you have one of two problems;

1) The ribbon cartrige it warn out or damaged, leading to no ink in a particular area.

More likely

2) The print head is damaged or warn out or is not connected correctly to the pritner. The print head may need to be reseated or if this does not fix the problem the print head may need to be replaced.
