Question about Epson TM-T88III (C420863)

Open Question

Greetings! I have a TM-T88iii - parallel connection version. Connected to Win XP Sp3 computer, through an ad on multiport Startech card (parall 2 serial ports) As I check printer ports connections choice in printer properties, I see LP3 and ESDPRT001 - which also seems to be a parall port. Might have been installed by TM-T88iii? First i leave the printer connected to LP3 - RESULTS: 1. we have a commercial money wiring program (akin to WesternUnion) installed. Epson printer prints receipts OK 2. trying to print off Win program (Notepad) OR printer's own "Test Page": result - "Page failed top print - ... - State of the printer is invalid" THEN I CONNECT the Epson printer to ESDPRT001 port. RESULTS: 1. Money wiring program does not print receipts 2. Win (Notepad) prom and Printer's Test Page send docs to spooler where that stay withjout ptinting. LAST, while docs are in the spooler (see above 2.) - I switch the printer to LP3. RESULT: docs in spooler now print. Will appreciate any input. I have reinstalled adon I/O parall/serial card. Thanks

SOURCE: Connecting Epson TM U220D printer with Laptop (having Windows XP)

If you have the Cables2GO USB to Parallel converter, it is a pain to get working.  Go to Radio Shack and buy the GigaWire USB to Parallel.
Then once plugged in, go the printer that will be using the converter.  Go to the printer properties, select the PORTS tab.  Select the 'VIRTUAL PRINTER PORT FOR USB'.  That worked for me!

SOURCE: Epson TM-T90 wont work with USB plug

I have the same problem...Epson does not work with a parallel to usb cable or adapter. If you still want to use this printer you will have to use the parallel port or change the interface on the printer to USB.

SOURCE: Epson TM 88II not working with Win XP SP2

Are you confident this is using a parallel interface?

The ones I used to work with used a 25pin to 9pin serial connection. The 25 pin connection on the printer is the same as a parrallel port on a PC, but if you think of a normal parallel lead the printer should use a 'centronics' connector to conform to this. I think you may need a 25pin to 9pin serial lead which aren't very common but plenty of people should still make them.

SOURCE: I have reinstalled an Epson

The cash drawer is loking for a signal from the printer to fire the drawer. It is usually on one of the pins of the cable comming from the printer. You will probably have to contact the cash drawer manufacture for that information.

You can contact Southeast Digital Networks, Inc. for more info.

SOURCE: I have a retail store with 7 x Win 7 Workstations.

Hi, details below for creating a ersistent connection from LPT1: to you \\computer\\printername printer. Do the following on the other workstation that is not printing.

Use the net.exe command to establish a persistent connection.

To do this, use the following syntax at a command prompt:

net use lpt1 \\printserver\sharename /persistent:yes

where printserver is the print server that is sharing the printer, and where sharename is the name of the printer share.

For example, to map LPT1 to a printer shared as Laser1 on a print server that is named Pserver, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
3. Type net use lpt1 \\pserver\laser1 /persistent:yes, and then press ENTER.
4. To quit the command prompt, type exit, and then press ENTER.

Note In Windows XP, non-administrative users cannot map an LPT port to a network printer path when the LPT port exists on the computer as a physical parallel port.
