Question about Epson POS TMT88IV Thermal Receipt Printer

1 Answer

I have an HP laptop 6730s with Windows Vista Busness OS. I got an Epson TM T88IV printer but couldn't work and i cant print. I am using USB Parallel Cable to connect the printer to my Laptop. I initially install the printer driver for Vista, but the status of the printer remain NOT AVAILABLE, after tidious research on the net I got and install the ADP_403EMW DRIVER of the printer. This change the printer status to READY but still yet i cant print, because printer queue always show Printing Error. Each time i plug the USB end of the cable to my Laptop windows try to install drive which always failed. After several failed attemp, This make me to uninstall the printer driver and reinstall and ever since then the status of the printer remain USER INTERVENTION REQUIRED and will never print even from a simple Notepad. I notice there are no LPT under the Ports Tree in the Device Manage but ZTE Diagonistic Port FF1 (COM 40) ZTE GPS Port FF1 (COM 41) ZTE Service Port FF1 (COM 38) ZTE Voice Port FF1 (COM 39) The Properties of the printer shows it is using Port - ESDPRT001, Description - COM1. which i guess it created by itself. I also notice that the Ports Tree in the Device Manage is not included at times and another time it will be included. I have been on this for almost a week now and it is fustrating, i have make several research and also google but no success. PLEASE, I would be greatful for your assistant. THANKS

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.

What do I need to hook up TM-T88IV to my computer to print out receipts?


Well according to EPSON the ways you can connect your printer to a computer are RS-232C, IEEE 1284 parallel; RS-485; high-speed USB; 10/100Base-T/TX; wireless. However the way they get you is you have to buy the interface from them. Contact EPSON and see what the cheapest one is. If you're only using it from one computer just a simple parallel cable will do the trick. If you live in the Washington DC area feel free to contact me and if you send me a picture of the back of the printer I can tell you what kind of connection it is. I'm at http://www.inovagent.com

I have an epson tm-t88IV on a USB port it is very slow to react when sent a print job, I did not have this issue with the Parallel Port, is there anything that can be done?


Have you used EpsonExpert.com yet to find the solution?
Go there (it's an Epson site) and set up a free user account.
From what I'm reading, it has to do with using Windows drivers slowing the response and printing. There are drivers on Epson Expert which should solve your issue.
