Star SP200 printing issues?

Did you ever figure out what the problem was with the Star SP200 and the slow printing, power light flashing? I'm having the same issue, and would prefer not to have to buy a new printer. Thanks for any advice...

try reinstalling the printer in the printer and faxes window under the controll panel by clicking on it and hitting the delete key, now select add a printer from the sidebar, and follow the instructions in the Wizard. Also check the printer settings and see if they are set to the defaults

My star sp200 will not print when asked. The "online" light is not lit up (I'm not sure if it was on before the problem) When I unplug the printer port cord, the online light comes on and the feed button...


1. check the usb or parallel cord to the PC to see if it is connected proper ly
2. clear all print document on the pc
3. If the "online" light will not come on this may mean that the cord is not completely in the connection socket.
4. check Dip switch for parallel cable ( should be 3 ON, 4 ON, 5 ON) this is for USA settings
5. check paper roll ( if at the end of roll it will shut down if proper paper load is loaded.
6. When temperature at the print head is high printer will go "offline"
7. check the alignment of the ribbon also

Right in the middle of printing it will stop, and the power light blinks. This problem is intermittant and frustrating! What does this mean? Thanks.


Its caused due to a Paper Jam , What you can do is turn upside down the printer and shake to see if any paper has got stuck. then replug and check for a test page.

Trying to use star sp200 with quickbooks pos and keep getting spread out printing


Sounds like the "template" is set for "letter size" paper rather than "receipt" paper.

Go to "Workstation" Preferences, and then "Printing". Verify the template selection.

Star SP200 printing issues?


There are many causes of this problem. I am more familiar with stratix printers though.

Check the cutter (if it is automatic) If it is jammed or not all the way retracted it will take the printer off line.

if you are using the serial/parallel port for the printer check to see if it has a cut in the wire.. Change cable if necessary.

The power supply may be introducing noise into the logics of the printer. If you are adventreous open the printer and inspect the power board for capacitors that have a round top or have dryed up oooze on them. They will need to be replaced or the board needs to be replaced.. Depends on your skill level.

Star SP200 no LED or Power


Obvious checks you may have already made...

Try another power cord (unless hard wired)...also, the power supply could be bad.

I would check the voltage on the power cord coming from the wall...if you have power...the power supply is bad...

Good luck my friend.
