Question about Epson TM-U220PB Matrix Printer
After installing my new Epson U220 PB it says printer not available and always print once.
if you are using lpt1 we expect that your printer is using a parallel cable. make sure that your printer is indeed using parallel cable and then check if there's a communication in between the 2 devices. to find out open your command promt then type in, dir>lpt1, your printer should print with or without a printer driver. if it will print, then possible issue is port configuration.. just make sure from the printer properties that you are using lpt. you can use esdprt lpt1 with bi-dir or lpt printer port without bi-dir support. you should be good to go from there. otherwise you may uninstall and reiinstall your printer driver..
Hope you can now use your printer..=)

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.. =)

do a self-test first. Perform by holding down the feed button then powering on the printer. if it prints then it is not a printer issue, but a driver or cable issue.

print the self-test, push the feed botton while powering on...
you can see there the serial interface...
baud rate, data bits, parity, stop bit etc...
then go to the printer and faxes,
right click the epson driver and click properties...
go to the ports window...
click on the epson tm u220 reciept.
click configure port...
adjust the baud rate as same as in the self test...

If you can browse your printer, then try to delete the printer queue
and re-add it. You do this from your Mac's System Preferences, Print
and Fax application.
The C6180 is connected through a wired network. Funny thing is that I can print a test page....but when I go to print the document never leaves the print queue.
I get the following message from the print queue....the retry goes from 5 seconds to 10 seconds through 30 seconds but stops at 30 seconds.
you could try to get into your system setup to check whether USB ports are disabled by default (you will probably see during system startup a brief message saying something like "Press F2 to run system setup", or perhaps some other key like F1, ESC, etc.) When you see your docs in the print queue, do you see some error/warning message associated to that job? You could make right button click on that job and see its properties. You could check whether you should restart that job or whatever else option you may find there.
As for the installation CD, you could investigate on that disk to see whether there exists a file with whatever name ended in ".PPD" (without quotes). You could use that file: in System => Admin => Printers, see the properties of the corresponding printer and then use the option "Change driver". You will be asked for your printer model or provide a .PPD file. Use the one you found in your installation CD.
