Euro Symbol Printing

I am trying to print the euro symbol on a Toshiba Tec B SX5T printer. I currently print the pound symbol with the ascii value 156, however the euro ascii value of 0128 drops the leading zero and prints the incorrect symbol.

0128 is not a recognisable sysmbol Go to the Toshiba web site and the tech Support team- evidently there has been an error in the printed instruct as to the symbol number.

Have a label with colours of gray and black. Toshiba B-SX5T printer does not print the gray colour very well at all. Shoppy print of areas on the label that are gray. Printer issues?

You must either modify your graphics or try another driver ou driver options.
Take care that this printer only print black dots and the grey is obtained by not printing all the dots.
With some algorithms the grey color is not correctly interpreted.

How to send printer commands to TEC SX5 printer

A lot of printers you can put special commands in a text file and just send it as a print job. You will want to consult toshiba for commands. Also lots of printers accept commands via telnet. You can use putty to telnet to the printer. Also many printers have web interfaces to configure them.

My TEC B-572 Printer is sporadically displaying various error codes.

Two things:
If firmware prior to 3.1 the you should not use topix graphics
You can use ascii or compressed. If you use topics and the printer doesn't understand it then the line is displayed with error condition.
Else you have a bad monitoring of the spool. B575 has monodirectional centronics port.

We've a problem with our TEC printer B-SX55. Sending a job via parallel interface only results in an error message showing up: XS;I,0001,0012C5 Can anyone tell me what to do to get it up and running...

This type of error message usually means a command error has been found in a command received by the printer. 16 bytes of the command error, hence the XS;I,0001,0012C5 message. It starts from the command code, XS.

I am not sure of all the command codes but I would suggest starting by re-installing the printer driver.
