Time master tc100 wont stop punching by itself-how to fix it?


Is it printing automatically when you insert a time card or printing without a card inserted (randomly)?

The Time Master TC100 can print both manually via the print button and automatically, depending on your print method settings. If the print method is the problem, follow these steps:
  1. Press the Mode button until P5 (Program Mode 5 for Print Format) is displayed.
  2. Press Settings to choose the print method. 1 = Automatic (default setting) - The TC100 automatically prints when the time card is inserted; 2 = Manual - After inserting the time card, press the Print Button to activate printing.
  3. Press Select to confirm the Print Method chosen.
  4. Press Mode to return to normal operation mode.

To see the full instruction manual you can visit http://www.royalsupplies.com/clocks/Instruction%20Manual%20TC100%20English%20GOLD-2005.pdf
If the issue is that the time clock is randomly printing times, I would suggest either checking the mechanism that senses a card for issues or calling Royal.

Won't print to right tray


I had this problem and solved it like this:

  1. Right click on printer driver in printers and faxes.
  2. Select printing preferences
  3. Choose paper quality tab
  4. Set paper size (A4 in my case)
  5. Set paper source to printer-auto-select. This is different from the default "Automatically select"

As long as tray 1 is empty, tray 2 should now kick in. Setting the paper source as tray 2 didn't work at all.

You seem to have to set this on each client computer though - even if you are sharing the printer over a network (4200n).

Ok,

I've went around and around with the same problem (bug) and finally found a solution. Here is the deal. You have to exactly match the settings for the MPF tray in the aplication softwares to the MPF tray settings set from front panel on the printer.

I found this problem when trying to print on gloss paper. The MPF tray had to be set for "Coated 1 Side 2" in both the application and on the front of the printer.

Lets say I'm printing a Word Document. Go to file, print, select the Dell printer, then select properties, select paper tray, set paper source to MPF, set MPF settings to ""Coated 1 Side 2". Click OK.

Now do the printer setup. From the front panel on the printer.
Press Menu, press the down button to Tray Settings
Press center button to select.
Display now asks for paper type. Press center button.
Displays MPF. Press center button.
Push down button until you see Coat1 Side2
Push center button to select.
Press Menu to exit.

I only print on gloss so I have to set the MPF tray to Coated 1 Side 2. I was told this slows the feed and that is needed for coated papers. Now you could probably use another setting as long you set both the MPF tray in both the application and the control panel to match exactly.
