My Star sp200 printer dosent print with POS s/w

I have installed POS on my system and then connect printer to CPU and cashdrawer to Printer, It works initially but all of sudden it stop printing. I wandered how come this problem appears now as it was working fine before. When I am trying to giving any print command, sound is coming from the printer but it just print 2/3 words in weird languages. I have also installed and registered OPOS star micronics printer/cashdrawer. With this we can test printer & cashdrawer by clicking button on it and as a result the cashdrawer should open. It works well before however after 3/4 hours this problem suddenly appear and even cashdrawer is not opening now after I am pressing the button of cashdraw in system. Can someone assist me what to do to make this run properly.
My device name key is SP242FC

Trying to set up star tsp100 printer as a receipt printer on averasell pos software. Have installed the printer and it prints test page fine. However when I try and do an invoice on averasell the cashdraw...


... 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

Trying to use star sp200 with quickbooks pos and keep getting spread out printing


Sounds like the "template" is set for "letter size" paper rather than "receipt" paper.

Go to "Workstation" Preferences, and then "Printing". Verify the template selection.

Cash Drawer Command


The cashdrawer is SERIAL, you'll need to connect it to a COM port. The
software you're using has to be capable of sending data to the COM port
the cashdrawer is connected to when the cashdrawer needs to be opened.
From the site you mentioned:

Be sure drawer lock is not engaged.
Exit your system to a DOS prompt. Type the following commands (substitute
the correct com port for com1):
c:\>mode com1:300,n,8,1
c:\>echo "000000000000000000000">com1
The cash drawer should open.

About the cashdrawer RJ11 connection on the printer: You can connect any
solenoid driven cashdrawer to this port. The port uses pin 2 and 4 for
the voltage output, which is normally 24V on Epson receipt printers.
Sending a specific ESC character (every POS software should be capable of
doing this) to the printer will be recognized by the printer and the
printer puts 24V on the 2 pins mentioned for 300ms and voila, the drawer
opens.

Star SP200 no LED or Power


Obvious checks you may have already made...

Try another power cord (unless hard wired)...also, the power supply could be bad.

I would check the voltage on the power cord coming from the wall...if you have power...the power supply is bad...

Good luck my friend.
