How to eject cash drawer pos

I have cash drawer connected to pos printer epson how to eject the drawer? please help

    I use the printer with a POS system written in MS Access on a USB port running XP. The computer recognizes the printer. I use it by updating data in a table to reflect my current sale then printing a report that is tied to that table.

    Works fine. Ejects the printer drawer.

    Thing is, I'd like to have the option of ejecting the drawer. I don't need it opening if we take a check or it's a credit card sale.

    I have no problem with having to select a report based on this criteria, i.e., one report open the drawer and the other doesn't, but it seems that simply writing data to the printer triggers the kick drawer action.

    In a previous iteration with a close relative of this printer I wrote raw data through the serial port and I could control this. Alas, the new computer has no serial port so I bought the U220 and began using USB.

    Any suggestions?

Hi

Please make sure that all the cables are connected firmly. If so then you will need to uninstall and re-install the printer drivers from the CD provided with the printer. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The cash drawer is loking for a signal from the printer to fire the drawer. It is usually on one of the pins of the cable comming from the printer. You will probably have to contact the cash drawer manufacture for that information.

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.
