Star TSP 100 do not print in access 2003, access said is over the 22.75" limit


I hope you have solved your problem in the mean time (9 months ago!).

I just bought the same printer and ran into the same problem. After looking on the internet for a solution and finding none I read the software manual a couple of times again and came up with this solution.

Access is right when it claims that the report's length is over the 22.75'' limit. The paper size of the 72 mm x Receipt is 72 mm wide and 3,000 mm tall; 22.75 being 577.85 mm. This means that the selected paper size is more than 5 times too tall.

The simplest solution is to choose the 72 mm x 200 mm paper size.

Next you need to go to the properties of your printer (Start > Settings > Printers and Faxes > Star TSP100 Cutter (TSP143)). Select Printer > Properties. In the Properties dialog select the Device Settings tab. Under Installable Options, set the Paper Type to Receipt. Setting the paper type to Receipt will cause the pages to have a variable length.

While you're there you might set the Page Cut Type to No Cut and set the Document Cut Type to Partial Cut.

Works like a charm for me.

If you really want you can even add Access's favorite paper length to the list of paper sizes. To do that you need to go to My Computer > Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. The best way to go there is to use the Windows Explorer or something similar. Under the File menu in Windows Explorer you'll find an option Server Properties. The Print Server Properties Dialog Box is shown. On the Forms tab you'll see a Forms on: <ComputerName> list. Locate the Star paper size of e.g. 72 mm x 200 mm and select it in the list. Once you check the Create a new form check box you can give it a new name. I called mine 72 mm x Access and modified the paper height to the 22.75'' or 577.8 mm.

However, I ran some tests and it doesn't seem like this last step is really necessary. Even with the 72 mm x 200 mm paper size selected for my Access report I printed tickets that were 5,000 mm tall without any problem.

Won't print at all

I have the same printer. It can be hooked to a network using an RJ-45 cable - which looks like a wide modular phone jack - or a USB cable.

It can be hooked up such that both cables are installed, but it is much better to pick one type of communications method and stick with that.
If you use USB, it is better, simply because you need to choose a network (IP) address for the printer.

Follow the installation guide, and don't plug in the USB cable until that step is called for by the install guide.

Best of all, you can also plug it into an earlier USB link, like 1.0 or 1.1 and, of course, 2.0.

I have mine plugged into an older computer which uses a 1.1 USB jack, and the communication is perfect, and prints without any problems.

So, I would say that you may have missed one simple step in the install procedure which, when remedied, will allow that printer to work like a charm. You will love the quality of the output, especially when you use a good quality photo paper, either glossy or matte.

Make certain you choose a paper specifically for a color laser jet printer. Color paper for an ink jet printer, when used on a laser jet printer, may cause unnecessary smearing of the image.

Installed with enclosed disc

Looking at the setup guide, it does indeed tell you to not connect the usb cable until prompted by the software. It is Step 7.

Here a link to the setup guide:

Kodak 5100 AIO Setup

Kodak Support has step-by-step instructions for uninstalling and reinstalling the software. Just make sure you remove the USB cable from the computer and reboot before you reinstall.

Here is the support page to begin on:

Problem installing drivers x5470 all-in-one

Hi, Try uninstalling all the software and unplug the printer and then restart your machine befoer trying to reinstall the printer. If using WinXP your PC should see the printer and then want to install the software. If you have the original instalation manual then follow it for a complete new install, as some printers require you to install the software before you plug in and turn on the printer.
