I have a client which needs to change the print spacing (line spacing ) via windows application printing. Hes currently using an excel/word to send off to the printer. Problem is line spacing is set to default which overlaps some of his receipt paper since it has store logos on etc.
I read there are ways to change config of printer by sending commands to printer, howver i dont see anything mentioned for windows on IBM POS OS 46XX. Can this be done from windows printing? Any suggestions?
I've already tried sending hypertermal commands via serial to printer. It looked like it worked but then the printer spits out the commands i sent over. lol. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

It can be a connection problem, since the printer and the computer are not communicating, probably the cable is bad, so if you have a different cable that we can try that will be better so we can check if its only a cable problem ...
had the same problem and my solution was to install the latest driver available at the IBM service/driver website. Then unistall it with another IBM driver cleaning tool, then repeat both processes a couple of times, until the printer responded. There is some bug on these latest drivers an older Windows versions, so only after some installations and repairs on the first install, windows gets it right. VERY STRANGE but it worked in 2 machines, both IBM terminal and 4610-tf6 IBM printer.
By the way; RS232 ibm cable...I believe its a null modem 9 pin...not a regular serial cable. Dip pin config: my printers have 4 so; 1ON 2ON 3OFF 4OFF which means 1 size of paper you are using 80mm 2 if you use an IBM software or other:other 3 if xon/off or DTR/DSR:hardware 4 com speed: 9600baud or 19200baud, 9600
That's what I igured out. If you need any more info: mail email@example.com
Sounds like the configured paper sized does not match the actual paper page height. So that when it does Top Of Form paper movement the paper stops slightly too low. Doing several form feeds should confirm this. If this is it then reconfigure the paper size to match the paper. Also measure to paper to see if it matches what you want it to be.
The 4610 has several common routines. One of these common routines is CR.BUFFER.GUILOTINE This routine buffers the guillotine cuts written to the receipt station. I believe you need to be sure that this routine is inserted in the printing program in order for the guilllotine mechanism to cut.
The routine should have the following defination:
SUB CR.BUFFER.GUILLOTINE PUBLIC The other routine is:
Also simply listen to hear if the knife mechanism is trying to activate after printing a receipt.
