TSP 700 printer on 32 bit windows 7. It doesn't stop printing and the paper just keep coming out. I've tried to reinstall driver and swapped the printer with the same model with another comput

Check if interface at the back of printer is interchangeable to the type of port your computer will support it. Direct USB to USB or direct connection is recommended to avoid future issues.

Trying to set up star tsp100 printer as a receipt printer on averasell pos software. Have installed the printer and it prints test page fine. However when I try and do an invoice on averasell the cashdraw...

... For windows 7 YOU MUST go to your printers properties and click the advanced tab and change it from PRINT SPOOL to PRINT DIRECTLY TO PRINTER...

and if you want your receipt to print off to the right size... install a second copy of the STAR TSP100 and set it as (COM3)... (make sure in the properties you change the paper size to 72 X receipt and cut to partial) i'd do it on both copies

as well go in to the virtual port config and add COM 3 and COM 4

then go to the averasel station properties and set cash drawer as com 4 with the generic/text printer and then under invoices set the print drivers as the star tsp100 copy (the one that is on com3)
and set the actual printer as Star Tsp100(the one that is usb)

sorry for the some what confusing step's perhaps someone else can word it better as i do not have the software in front of me right now...

but my end result was a cash drawer that opened
a printer that printed TO THE RIGHT SIZE and not a full page

The star tsp700II receipt printer I have was working great and then one day it started feeding paper before each receipt. So it wastes about 6inches of paper on every receipt. I cannot figure out what...

Our Star TSP700II leaves about 1/4 inch of unused paper on the roll when the error light comes on and the printer stops printing. Is there any way we can make an adjustment so that we're not wasting so much paper?

Connect my laptop

I may need more information, but are you trying to create a local area network? SOunds like you want to access your information on your base computer and also have the ability to print. If so, you have to create a home network. There's a couple of ways to do this, but probably the easiest is to download a copy of network magic, and let it do all the work.
