Are you using the APD304e driver for your printer? It has option where to cut paper, if not you can download driver from site, you will have to register first so that you will get a username and password. then go to technical resources, then select printer model then download driver

heres a screenshot of the driver info unfinished printing cut-off - 426b8c6.jpg

    In your application/POS application are you using a custom size paper? and are you using the printer driver? Or are you using esc codes?

    The latest is APD401, but i recommend the apd304e for your unit, select tm-t88II on printer list from and download the 304e driver.

    tell me if you are still getting the same thing after loading the APD304e driver

    Thats all right, youll just select the printer model from, but when you install the driver using the APD304e in the option to select printer module on the process of installation select TM-T88IV (alright?) but before reinstalling new driver, uninstall previous driver first from add/remove program. then reboot when it prompts you to. Have a Good one!

How to Install Cable Television?

The first steps in cable wiring involve identifying the location
and number of rooms, identifying the type of wire needed, and
measuring for wire length. Owners have the choice of
purchasing finished coaxial cable, which comes in specific
lengths with attached fittings on each end or unfinished cable,
which can be cut to any length and finished by the purchaser.
Cable that will not be installed behind the walls should be
placed in areas where they will not present a safety hazard,
such as along floorboards where they can be secured. Cut
holes in walls or ceilings for in-wall installations. These
installations must be done carefully so that the holes can be
replaced and repainted after the wiring is completed. In-wall
installations also require special attention to location, since the
cable may cross the path of electrical wiring. It is important to
maintain sufficient distance between cable and electric wires
for both safety and performance, since running the cable wire
too close to the electric wires can degrade performance.
Be sure to attach one end of the wire to the "out" connector on
the video device and connect the other end to the "in" on the
television or monitor.

Should I pick a pre-finished or an unfinished floor?

Re-finished flooring has a great advantage over unfinished flooring. Both floors install exactly the same; however, once the pre-finished floor is installed you're all done. An unfinished floor requires sanding and then the application of urethane. This can take an extra couple of days with an incomparable amount of aggravation.

Using the cutter

you want to print borderless on a cutsheet media? you just have to select and 'cheat' the printer in the printer properties, in there choose roll on the paper source option then enable the cutter and choose double cut on printer's set-up menu on the panel, then it'll cut before and after the printing to make it borderless from top to bottom and from edge to edge. just be sure that the cutsheet media is long enough so that the printer can still hold the media as it finishes the printing or else it'll be a waste, cause the printer wont finish the image. and take note that the epson sp9600 has a limitation in printing borderless, it'll only print borderless on (12", 17", 24", 36:, and 44") media size only i think there's also 14". trust me it'll work, ive done it! :P
