Connecting Epson TM U220D printer with Laptop (having Windows XP)

Hi,
I am not able to connect Epson TM U220D printer with my Laptop (Compaq series with Win XP).
I bought a USB to parallel port convertor, but "Device not recognized" error does not go. The UBS port shows "Unknown Device" .

Please suggest.

Thanks and regards,
Amit

If you have the Cables2GO USB to Parallel converter, it is a pain to get working.  Go to Radio Shack and buy the GigaWire USB to Parallel.
Then once plugged in, go the printer that will be using the converter.  Go to the printer properties, select the PORTS tab.  Select the 'VIRTUAL PRINTER PORT FOR USB'.  That worked for me!

Please verify if you properly install the port converter, its drivers.

Epson TM-U220D. Parallel to USB connection. Which drivers should I install?


Hi Ali

The problem by doing this is that not all Parallel to USB cables work right out of the box with your equipment.

What you need to do first is make sure that your computer sees the device through the cable. Then when it prompts you for the drivers for the printer install the driver set (parallel) the connection should not matter at this point. However the step of the computer detecting the device first is very important.

I hope this helped.

Epson TM-U220D Printer Status


Hi, On the PC that will not display printer status correctly, pls run MSCONFIG (start, run, type "msconfig", OK); in the System Configuration Utility Window, click on the tab Startup, see if the EPSON Status Monitor is present and checked. If it is not present, check if you have Lavasoft Ad-Watch or similar program running. This prevents the EPSON Status Monitor from registering and running correctly. If such a program is running, temporarily remove Automatic setting and reinstall the EPSON Status Monitor. Accept any registry modification at this point. Restore all settings once installation is finished. If still a no go, try wiggling the parallel connector a bit and make sure it is snug and fit. If all else fails, you may have to consider: Installing to only 1 PC, share and make it a print server assuming you have networked all your PCs; or re-installing Windows (Ouch!) Hope things work out for you. Pls post again how things turn up. Kind regards.
