How do I download driver for Mitsubishi P90 Printer?


You could try this page which appears to have a general driver installer download link: http://xpdrivers.com/printer/_1_18.cfm (Post 1994 Prtr)
However, it may be you can still print WITHOUT drivers if you just send PLAIN TEXT (*.txt) files IN THE DOS PROMPT windows environment. Eg "copy c:shopping.txt LPT1".
Good Luck

How Send EPL2 commands to USB


Use the Zebra ZUD driver. Latest version V5.5.7.25 (Download from Zebra website). When driver is installed, go to printer & Faxes folder and double-click on the installed printer icon.

Click Printer/properties/printer/advanced (+)/tools (Click on tools) This opens a text box. Type commands in here and send directly to printer. E.G type U click send and it will print a config sheet.

This definately works.

Zebra printers & MS Word


HI Les1810,

You should be printing faster with Zebra fonts.
Which driver are you using? Version?
I strongly recommend the Zebra Designer V1.3.08, available at Zebra.com

To isolate the problem, capture the output to a file.
Define a local port as C:\output.txt and set that as the port in driver properties.
Now print your document. The printer commands will be in C:\output.txt.

Send c:\output.txt directly to your printer.
For LPT1, use the DOS copy command to send the file. (Copy C:\output.txt LPT1)
For serial connections, use Hyperterm to send the file.
For network connections, use ftp.
No easy USB method is readily available.

Does this print faster than printing the original document from Word through the driver?
If yes, then update your driver.
If no, debug your communication to the printer (LPT1, serial, network, etc.)

Help me with Zebra TLP 2844


The printer only understands EPL code. (Eltron Programming Language) If you are trying to print text from DOS it wont understand (interpret) the txt codes.

To verify that the printer is working.

Open a DOS box, start the dos editor. Type Edit. Dos editor will open.


Type a single capital letter U. and print. Send to printer. The printer will print a configuration label.

EPL code to reset printer is

^default.


If you want to print a text file. use the Zebra Universal Driver. Zebra TLP2844. Open any windows application. E,G, Notepad. type text and send it to printer. Print as normal.

USB printing through DOS mode


Google for DOS PRINT USB, and you'll find some utilities that do this.

Or, you can include some commands in your batch file.

First, get the device name:

In a DOS window, type NET VIEW ComputerName (or use 127.0.0.1)

Once you know the printer share name, you use it in a batch file.

NET USE lpt1: \\ComputerName\ShareName /Persistent:Y

This captures the print queue to the shared printer.

You must also go into Printer Properties/Advanced/Print Processor and set it to TEXT

Your copy, print and other commands will work.

Printing from Dos Prompt


1. Save your text file (.txt).

2. On the command prompt navigate to that directory

3.Type "Lpr -S 192.168.1.200 -P lp text.txt"

Substitute 192.168.1.200 for your copier's ip

Substitute text.txt to filename.

 

Or you can: to print from MS-DOS apps.

1. Share the printer on a networked windows computer. Make sure you make the name MS-DOS compatible.

2. At a DOS prompt, type the following command:
"net use lpt1: \\servername\printer_share/persistent:yes"

NOTE Servername=computer name

printer_share=printers share name
