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?

Using 3 star 512 printers on 2 station pos network using printfil to control printers. can not get cash drawer to open unless I turn off raw cash drawer opens but print is unreadable


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.

PP8000B printer just prints garbage..and Cash drawer doesn't open have tried the O POS manager , tried almost everything .. Any suggestions welcome...HELP


Every POS software has commands that opens the cash drawer and prints the ticket. It also controls how long the receipt ticket is, if it prints in color. Then there are two types of cables that communicate between the cash drawer and the printer to pop the drawer. Then there are dip switches in the printer that change how the printer operates according to the software. When it prints garbage, the driver that comes from the POS software is not synced with the printer. Sorry you asked. Call the POS Software company.

Hi!
Are you using the Epson TM-T90 driver? When you go to printer settings through Printers and Faxes there is an option to Open Drawer after or at the Beginning of the transaction.
One other way to check if you have the correct commands for it is by checking on printers Manual and Technical documents of it where you can get online. Click HERE. Register and wait for an Email for Username and password.
Hope this helps.

I can't get my cash drawer to work is there a secret. I have enabled the cash drawer in digital dining but it won't open


You must be sure the voltage to the cash drawer and the printer are correct. A 24 volt RJ12 printre connection to the solenoid of a 12 volt cash drawer will cause damage. If the drawer was working and stopped, it is possible the solenoid may be the problem.

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.

Cash drawer


Greetings,

From the computer (application to be exact), you send a signal to the printer to kick the drawer open but is there a confirmation signal from the printer going back to the computer that it successfully opened the drawer (not just successfully carried-out the command) ?

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.
FixYa for all your troubleshooting needs.
