Question about Matrix Star SP200 Receipt Printer

Open Question

We lost our electricity for about 10 seconds

We have a Star sp200-2 sp212FC parallel port receipt printer.

We lost our electricity for about 10 seconds during a windy rain storm (not an electrical storm). The receipt printer did not come back on after that power failure. I unplugged and re-plugged it in and I turned the toggle switch on and off but it still doesn't work. We've had the pritner for almost 6 years.

try reinstalling the printer in the printer and faxes window under the controll panel by clicking on it and hitting the delete key, now select add a printer from the sidebar, and follow the instructions in the Wizard. Also check the printer settings and see if they are set to the defaults

Star tps 100 not producing reciept intermittantly


Is this the networked Star TSP or the USB version? If it's networked you may want to make sure that you're still connected to the network by printing out a test receipt (power the printer off, hold the feed button down while it's off and continue holding the feed button after turning the printer back on until it prints a test receipt - the second receipt will give IP configuration information).

If you're not receiving a valid IP address you may be having network issues - you might consider assigning the printer (you might need to power cycle your router and printer to get initially connected again in order to do this).

You can also try resetting the printer to its default configuration - you can find instructions here:

... For windows 7 YOU MUST go to your printers properties and click the advanced tab and change it from PRINT SPOOL to PRINT DIRECTLY TO PRINTER...

and if you want your receipt to print off to the right size... install a second copy of the STAR TSP100 and set it as (COM3)... (make sure in the properties you change the paper size to 72 X receipt and cut to partial) i'd do it on both copies

as well go in to the virtual port config and add COM 3 and COM 4

then go to the averasel station properties and set cash drawer as com 4 with the generic/text printer and then under invoices set the print drivers as the star tsp100 copy (the one that is on com3)
and set the actual printer as Star Tsp100(the one that is usb)


sorry for the some what confusing step's perhaps someone else can word it better as i do not have the software in front of me right now...


but my end result was a cash drawer that opened
a printer that printed TO THE RIGHT SIZE and not a full page

you might need to fiddle around with the usb virtual printer port configuration , when you add printer. when adding a printer, uncheck the install automatically tick box, then on the NEXT page click on the drop down list of "use the following port" and try virtual port. it might work.

1. check the usb or parallel cord to the PC to see if it is connected proper ly
2. clear all print document on the pc
3. If the "online" light will not come on this may mean that the cord is not completely in the connection socket.
4. check Dip switch for parallel cable ( should be 3 ON, 4 ON, 5 ON) this is for USA settings
5. check paper roll ( if at the end of roll it will shut down if proper paper load is loaded.
6. When temperature at the print head is high printer will go "offline"
7. check the alignment of the ribbon also

Is it possible to connect an old, still very efficient HP 5L Laserjet Printer which uses parellel port cable to a new computer via a USB cable? If yes, what do I need?


Yes it is. You just need a Parallel to USB adapter. Here is a link to an example of what you need.

Parallel to USB

I have done this several times with Parallel Receipt Printers. Works Great!!

Another option would be to add a Parallel Port to your new computer. Here is another link.

PCI Parallel Card

The 1st option is probably the cheapest and easiest.

Good luck and have a great day!

Mb password lost


Only solution is to buy, or make on your own, a parallel port password removal key. You can probably get a cheap one on eBay for around $10, or make one using an old, parallel printer cable. The wiring schematics is available for free (just google it). Plug the key into the parallel printer port, turn on the laptop, and the CMOS password will be removed.

Epson TM-T90 wont work with USB plug


I have the same problem...Epson does not work with a parallel to usb cable or adapter. If you still want to use this printer you will have to use the parallel port or change the interface on the printer to USB.
