Hi guys, first post here and hope some of you can help or have
I just bought a new TM88III thermal receipt printer (serial) and a
serial cable from the POS-WAREHOUSE ; i am using RETAIL PLUS 2.0
download/trial version to test out the POS.
I have a PC running Win XP.
When I was testing the POS, I have no problems of the POS software
after a transaction is done, we hit ENTER and it will print out an
invoice from our inkjet printer. This mean the POS program is stable.
I have gone to download the driver software A301.gk (or something like
that) from official EPSON support website and install/configure it. I
selected serial driver, and COM PORT 1 (serial port 1) and install,
then reboot. After that, i do see a printer driver (set as default).
Then when i try to use NOTEPAD to print out a line of numbers, it takes
a long while for anything to come out (5-10 minutes) and it prints out
some Garbage characters. And when i used the POS software, and simulate
a transaction, hit ENTER/PRINT, the hour glass appears, and like 5-10
minutes, then a receipt prints out with Garbage characters.
I googled some comments, and tried "deactivating" ADVANCED PRINTING
FEATURES, PRINT DIRECT TO PORT, none of them seem to improve the
It doesn't print properly and it takes a long time ....does anyone of
you have any advise ?
Tks in advance.
I have implemented BusinessVision with TM U200 receipt printer before
with my last POS and i found this time round. it is hard.
