Citizen iDp 3550 prints double-spaced

We have Citizen iDp 3550 printers here at work. They used to print single-spaced, but for some reason they print double-spaced now. I can't make sense of the manual I found online. We're wasting lots of paper for receipts! Anyone know how to fix this? Any help is much appreciated! =] I am having the same problem. I do not have access to make settings from the computer. I need to do any changes totally from the printer and I have not found the compination to getting the printer into a mode to do this. Does anyone have a solution. I am desperate. I need an answer so that I can get this reset before my snack bar opens tomorrow for the holiday weekend.

Thanks,

It is a dip switch setting, on dip switch #6, it needs to be "On" It will then single space the lines. After re-setting the switch under the cover, turn off the printer for 30 seconds to clear the buffer...then holding the "LF" button, turn it back on, until its self test is complete. You problem will be over.

Printer double spaces between lines


That is a setting in your printer setup menu under options or advanced. Page set up should come up under advanced or as its own tab.

After installing printer & drivers printer is still showing an error. Error light is flashing and "sel" button will not remove flashing error. Printer has paper installed correctly, ribbon is...


After installing the printer and the software you must reboot the computer to register the hardware changes. After booting up open your "printers" from the Control Panel or Start "settings - printers".
Make sure that the printer is listed. If it is listed, right click on it and select "properties". Now the printer control panel will come up. Select - "Print test page". If the software and cables are installed correctly the printer will be listed and it will print the test page.
In the same way, with a right click on the printer you can select to make it your "Default" printer.

New operating systems will see the new hardware and offer to install it for you. If you say yes and OK the computer will do an internet search and it should find the correct drivers for your operating system. If it does not find the correct drivers for your operating system you may have to the companies web page and select support - downloads and find your correct driver.

Printer is printing jibberish = looks like a lot of "f"s underlined.


Try to turn the printer off and then on again. If that does not clear it you need to re-install the driver, the driver may be corrupt.

Documents in single space print in double space


There may be a dip switch somewhere on the printer which enables/disables the extra linefeed. If both CR (carriage return) & LF (linefeed) are both enabled, you will get the double-spacing. In years past, I've run a few different Epson dot matrix printers, and seems like they had such a dip switch. Also, on the software end, you may be able to disable either CR or LF- check in your printer driver software.
