Printing question marks on the receipt paper

When we go to process a sale it prints a ton of questions marks all over the receipt. I tried to mess around with the dip switch settings but that didn't work. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    No, it is connected to a POS system. Is there a dip switch setting that might need to be changed?

    Yes change baud rate. On the Ellix printer I have it's a matter of turning three of the little switches inside the paper holder. Look up the service manual.

It'll be the BAUD rate, try changing it in the till software to 9600 or 128200

Try to print clean page ,
Print a cleaning page During the printing process, paper, toner, and dust particles can accumulate inside the printer and can cause print quality issues such as toner specks or spatter, smears, streaks, lines or repeating marks. Follow these steps to clean the printer's paper path.
  1. Load copier-grade paper (not bond, heavy, or rough paper).
  2. On the printer's control panel, touch the Menu button.
  3. Touch Configure Device .
  4. Touch Print Quality .
  5. Touch Process Cleaning Page .
A Cleaning message appears on the printer control panel display while the cleaning is taking place. The cleaning process takes a few minutes to complete. Do not turn the printer off until the cleaning process has finished. A page will be printed when the task is complete. Discard the page. You might need to repeat the cleaning process to thoroughly clean the printer. Print a few more pages to see if the problem is resolved.

MY PRINTER IS PRINTING A LOT OF QUESTION MARKES.......??????????.....


your printer is printing garbage because the file you tried to print corupt or the printer driver is corupt restart printer and pc then try printing a test page from the printer driver if this works then that file you printed and did come out properly is corrupt suggest you delete or if it a word file copy and paste into a fresh word document should sort out the corrupt file if the test page also comes out as garbage the uninstall the printer driver and reinstall it then test again

Paper jam/ printing problem


I have this printer and when this did it to me like its doing to you the FEEDER had to be replaced. Now you might want to see if all the rollers are rolling and nothing is in the paper path. Also check you paper weight and size and adjust accordenly. A new feeder is like $27 bucks and you would have to go 3rd party to get it. I got mine from a USED lexmark someone was saling off ebay for my fix.

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.

How to print adhisive labels using mfc 7340


Buy laser-specific adhesive labels. Those that say "Laser printer compatible". If you have an inkjet printer, print the labels with it, with the laser is more risky because of the temperature the paper needs to get in the printing process. If one label gets out of the support paper or the paper gets sticky inside the printer, it will cause a real mess.
Try inkjet first, or buy high-quality labels and print one full sheet at a time, not label by label.

make sure you have selected the correct media in the printer driver. The tracking mode has 3 options, (1) Web Sensing (Cut Labels), (2) Mark Sensing (Black marks on back of liner) and (3) Continuous . In your case select continuous. It sounds like the printer is in the wrong media mode and is feeding labels looking for a mark or gap and when it doesn't find one it flags a media error.
