Unable to print with EPSON TM-T88III Receipt Printer

Hi Guyz,
I have EPSON TM-T88III Receipt printer installed on Windows XP. (This is installed using windows drivers). In the Printer Properties>On Font tab, it's not displaying the list of
supported fonts & font sizes. Please guide me in this. I am unable to print with this printer.Also it's displaying the status of this printer as 'Not Available' Why is it so?
Thanks & Regards, Sam

We use OPOS driver for our TM-T88III with no problems. It seems to me in previous posts there have been a lot of issues using Epsons window's drivers. Most people end up using OPOS. If you must use window's drivers you might be better off switching to a Star printer. There doesn't seem to be any issues with their window's drivers. Craig

I use TM88III's and IV's. My old III's are parallel interface. Here is my install notes. Hope it helps!
use Epson WINDOWS APD driver for TM-88-III receipt 3 - parallel i/f and install usb driver
after installing - in Win printer settings change port to USB virtual and uncheck bi-directional
printer settings/operation add open drawer command for Start of Document add cut for end of page

I forgot to note - those III's are parallel interface - BUT installed with a usb-parallel adapter cable, as they are now on PCs without parallel ports.

Hi Guyz,
I have reinstalled my EPSON TM-T88III printer and installed it as Serial 'Com1'. This has solved my problem.
Thanks for your valuable replies.
Regards, Sam
