When i print the test page on my epson TM-T88IV it displays the "paper out" error when the paper is there. What could be the problem? Please help because they are two of them doing the same.


Hi,
Try to take out paper roll and try reinstalling it, make sure cover is closed properly as well.
If same issue persist, call your dealer or Epson for Authorized Service Centers. Or you may Visit their website at www.support.epson.com
Hope this helps.

TM-T88III print speeds and other issues


Try setting both switch 1-7 and 1-8 to ON for 38400 baud, set switch 1-2 to OFF to give a 4k buffer, set switch 2-5 to OFF to release the busy buffer at 256 bytes, set switches 2-3 and 2-4 to ON & OFF for medium print density and OFF & ON for dark print density or OFF & OFF for normal print density.

Also remember that the thermal TM-T88III also prints faster when the print head is cooler and slower when it heats up. The print speed is adjusted automatically depending on the voltage applied and head temperature. So make sure your power supply is providing a steady 24VDC at full load and has enough capacity to provide a peak of 7.7A in full speed mode. If you are using the printer in high temp and humidity you might want to swap the unit out for a Star Printer which performs faster and uses the same protocol or use a cooling fan.

Also make sure you use a good quality paper and that the humidity is within range at 10 – 90% RH although the paper performance will be greatly diminished at higher humidity levels.


Specifications:

High-speed = Approx. 150 mm/s {5.9"/s} max.; 47.2 lps, max. (3.18 mm {1/8"} feed);
35.5 lps, max. (4.23 mm {1/6"} feed, at 24 V, 28°C {82°F}, density level 1).

Low-power: Approx. 16.5 lps (4.23 mm feed {1/6"}); 70 mm/s {2.76"/s}
Ladder bar code: Approx. 42 mm/s {approx. 1.7"/s}

High-speed mode: Mean: Approx. 1.8A Peak: Approximately 7.7A @24VDC
Low-power mode: Mean: Approx. 1.2A Peak: Approximately 6.6A @ 24VDC

Operating temp = 5 to 45°C {41 to 113°F}
Operating Humidity = 10% - 90% RH

I have a TM u220 printer. I can't get it to auto cut. Any ideas? Is there a code?


TM 220a and TM 220b should come with auto cutters
You have to unscrew the metal tab under the printer, you will find two sets of DIP switches. upper one is DWS 1 and the lower one is DWS 2. On DWS 2 you need to have jumper #2 ON. this enables or activates the auto cutter on printers. Good luck...

User Intervention required on Epson TM-U220PD


I had the same problem with the user intervention required status on the printer. I tries reinstalling it several times through the Epson Driver Utility but got the same message each time. I got it to work after making two change but do not know which one (if either) got it to work. First i uninstalled the printer driver through Add/Remove Programs and not through the Driver Utility. I also set Dip switch 1-1 to on which enables auto line feed with parallel interface, with other interfaces this switch changes other things.

EPSON TM T88IV


The TM-T88IV printer is a thermal printer and does not have ink or a ribbon.

If the printer is not printing you may have the wrong type of paper in the printer. You must have thermal paper in order for the printer to work. Paper for a dot matrix printer will not work in this printer.

The printer has a self-test that you can perform by turning the printer off, holding down the Feed button and turning the printer on. A test strip will print. Press the Feed button again to print a longer test strip.

TM-U220 printer is not printing anything.


do a self-test first. Perform by holding down the feed button then powering on the printer. if it prints then it is not a printer issue, but a driver or cable issue.

How to auto tear paper after printing receipt is completed.


moz-screenshot-2.jpgIf you are using the generic driver you can get the code from epsonexpert.com site or try this

SELECT CUT MODE AND CUT PAPER ASCII GS V m



executes full or partial cut. HEX 1D 56 m


DEC 29 86 m


m = 0, 1, 48 or 49 cuts paper










SELECT CUT MODE AND CUT PAPER ASCII GS V m n



feeds paper and executes full or partial cut. HEX 1D 56 m n

DEC 29 86 m n

m = 65 or 66 feeds paper to (cut position + [n x (vertical motion unit)]) and cuts the paper
n = 0 to 255
