Question about SiPix Pocket Printer A6 Mobile Thermal

1 Answer

Hey! I recently bought SiPix A6. It works almost perfectly as it shuts down everytime when i have printed one page. Same thing on AC or batteries. If i try to remove batteries and reinsert, or remove AC and put it back, it still doesnt work. If i try to print, it just shuts off. It needs ~15 minutes after on page to "cool down" and then i can print again. Is this normal or is my printer faulty?

I don't have a real solution but I do have that problem. first page prints fine. If I try to print again, the printer shuts off. I'm using a usb to serial adapter and I realized that if I unplug the usb plug then plug it back in, VIOLA it works agail BUT only for 1 more page! After each page, I have to unplug and replug the usb cable from the computer. I definitely think that this is a driver problem and not a power problem. On one laptop it work ok but starts making the above problems when changing paper settings.

I've read on the web about this problem. Does anyone have a solution?

I require a driver for my palm t/x and palm lifedrive for my sipix a6 pocket printer, is there anyway of getting a driver for it please and thank you sir or madam


The instruction manual says you can download the latest drivers from support pages on the SiPix and IS/Complete sites. When I checked, neither site had these up.

Good luck try uninstalling the software then reinstalling you will have to go control panel and use uninstall.

Hope this helps these printers are great when you can get them to work a little slow but handy,

64 bit Windows 7 and the SiPix Pocket Printer A6...any solutions?


I have one of these printers. If you have the 32 BIT VERSION of vista, or 7 this printer will work via the serial RS232 port using the windows 2000 driver.
This driver does not work with the 64 bit versions of these operating systems. I don't know of any driver for 64 bit systems.
32 bit versions of Ubuntu do have a driver for this printer as of the 2016 version.

the Sipix A6 pocket printer uses these settings on the com port:

11520 Bits per second
8 data bits
no parity
2 stop bits
hardware flow control

I hope this info helps out.

Windows 7 should be able to use Vista or XP drivers, but you should have no trouble downloading Win7 drivers:

And....some info...
Software
The Pocket Printer uses a special version of IS/Complete's IrPrint. This allows it to print from all the built-in applications. I think it handles this in a very cool way. In order to print something, just launch the IrPrint application. This brings up a screen with large buttons to open any of the built-in apps. Tap on one of these and the actual application will be opened. You can do anything you would normally do in this app, plus each now has an "IrPrint" option added to its first drop-down window. Clicking on this will open the print driver.

That explanation might not be clear so I'll walk through an example. Say you have an Address Book entry to want to print. First, open the SiPix application and choose Address. This will open the Address Book app allowing you to look up the address you are interested in.This is the regular Address Book; you could add, edit, or delete any entry at this point. But instead you want to print one so you find it and open it. If you tap on the Menu silk screen button the Record drop-down box will appear. At the bottom of this drop-down box is a new entry: IrPrint. Tap on it. At this point, it is necessary to be pointing your palm's IR port at the Pocket Printer's. The Palm will spent a few seconds finding the printer then open a window of options.

SiPix Pocket A6 Printer Windows Vista Driver.


SiPix never had a Vista driver. Most new computers, like mine, do not have serial ports. Here is how I got my A6 working with Vista --

1. Purchase a serial to USB converter cable. (I got mine on Ebay for about $4.00.) Plug one end into the serial cable that came with the A6 and the other end into a USB port on the computer. Vista automatically picked up and installed the converter cable. In Device Manager, it shows up under Ports and gives it a com port number. Right click on the device and click on Properties. Click on the Port Settings tab and change Bits Per Second to 115200, Data Bits to 8, Parity to None, Stop Bits to 2, and Flow Control to Hardware per your A6 Owner's Manual. Click OK.

2. Now go to Printers in the Control Panel. Click to add a printer. Follow on screen prompts. Whe asked what port the printer is on, highlight whatever port the USB converter cable was assigned to. (In my case, Com 4.) When asked for the driver, direct it to the CD Drive where you have the A6 driver disk. Direct it to the Windows 2000 driver. If you try to use the XP driver, it will tell you it is the wrong OS. The 2000 driver will install. Your A6 should now be installed and show up in your list of printers.

My A6 now prints from any program or the internet using Windows Vista.
