Question about Epson TM-U220D Matrix Printer
Need to install two tm-u220d for POS on same computer. The one installed on serial port just prints the test page but does not work with the point of sale programme. Second printer just does not install on serial or parralel port. The printers does not come with installation cd. Help
Yo tengo el mismo problema con la miniprinter TM U220D, en este momento, pero ya analice diversa informacion y el problema parece ser, que segun sus caracteristicas, debe comunicarse con el puerto RS-232 o Paralelo bidireccional y segun sanjaypk, el lo tiene conectado al serial, igual que yo y aunque si imprime la pagina de prueba, no imprime desde el programa punto de venta.
La solucion, conseguir un cable paraleo o en su defecto, un convertidor para conectarla al puerto paralelo.
Espero les sea de utilidad, ya les contare si a mi me funciono.
Saludos desde Mexico. Sorry, por respuesta en español.

Printer problems can be a real headache.
This definitely sounds like a driver issue because you are able to print a test page so that tells us the computer is successfully communicating with the printer port. What is happening here is the Computer is communicating with the printer through the Operating System (Windows or Apple etc) but the driver IN the software for the POS is not. You didn't mention the computer Operating System you are using or the POS software but the dates of each are ctitical.
The tm-u220d is a high speed printer so make sure you set your LPT1 settings for High Speed Bi Directional printing. (You do this in the Printers Configuration area.)
As far as a driver, check the dates of the driver and look for updates. If you like what I've told you so far then let me know and I'll be glad to assist you further.
Best Regards and Best Luck!
