SOURCE: epson t88iii will not print

I would like to say sorry to you I got my serial port mixed up with the parallel port. I have resolved the problem, it was a DIP switch change which needed to be set. If anybody can not get their computer to communicate with the printer then I would suggest they download the Epson Technical reference guide and read it thoroughly, but only use the guides for your method of connection which is dependent on your model of printer. I found that for a baud rate of 38400 DIP switch SW 1 numbers 7 & 8 should be switched to ON .I hope this helps some else.

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: In installing an old Epson T88III receipt printer

Hi

Ignore the message to install the Epson TM-2.01 and proceed to install the correct driver for your Epson T88III.

Just set up or add the correct printer driver and make you choose USB port connection not parallel port. Then try to print the test paper and if prints, then you are properly configure your printer.

If not, you have to configure the correct driver and the correct PORT connection to your printer.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

Regards and thank you for using Fixya !

How do i change the ink


The Epson TM-T88III is a thermal printer so it does not use ink, it prints on special thermal paper only. Be sure you have the correct paper in the unit. If it is correct and the printer still does not print then you have a problem with the print head and the printer will need to go in for 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).

How do I get the cash drawer to pop using the Epson TM-T88III and windows driver? I am currently using RMS as our point of sale system but do not want to use OPOS drivers as this printer and cash drawer is...


You can set this up under printer settings - Under Windows XP - At the control panel, click printers, right click the tm-t88iii printer and select properties. Click the 'Device Settings' tab and there *should* be a option to open the cash drawer after printing.

Espon TM-T88III Not Feeding or Printing


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.
