ezPower / Re: what to do when items are not scanning
« on: October 21, 2009, 05:21:09 AM »
1) If an item is not scanning open the item in the Product Edit window and scan the barcode into the UPC field.  Click Save.

2) Turn on the Quick Add option in the Settings / General.  This will allow you to add an item into the database quickly.  Just enter a price, description... whatever you want quickly.  It will open Quick Add window when you scan an item and it's not found int he database.

Serial Print Fast & Open Drawer

If your serial printer is slow you can use two drivers, one to print fast and one to open the drawer. Thanks to Tim for this suggestion.

OK. Here is a perfect workround for me any anyone using Epson integrated tills.

Download and Epson T88ii driver
Add a new printer using the Epson driver downloaded
Add a second printer - Generic text found on Windows Operating system
Set Cash Draw to open using Epson Opus
Choose Printer 1 - Epson T88ii and set No of receiptsto print to "0" ZERO
Choose Printer 2 - Generic Text Printer and set No of receipts to print to "1" ONE

Providing printers are set to same COM port, the printer will print at lightning speed and the cash draw will open.

I hope that saves some trial and error time for anyone having the same problems as I have had.

ezPower / Epson TM88III serial print faster

To make the Epson TM88III serial print faster, cut the paper after each print and open the cash drawer.

Follow the previous instructions to increase the baud rate sent on 11/28/05 at 05:05 PM, then go to the printer properties, and under the general tab click on printing preferences. Under the Main tab, change the print resolution FROM (180 x 180) TO (90 x 90). This has printed alot faster with the EZPOWER epos on every occassion.

To cut the paper and open the drawer, go to the printer properties, and under the general tab click on printing preferences. Under the Operation tab, go to Start of document - Open drawer option - choose open drawer 1 or 2 depending on your connection either via the receipt printer or via a serial connected drawer.

To cut the paper, set the paper cut under the Operation tab - Start of Document to manual. DO NOT tick the feed to cut position before cut.

Then go to End of Document button, and set the paper cut option to Partial Cut. Do not make any changes to the Start of Page or End of Page options, and this will not affect the paper cut function.

The main reason as to why the paper or open drawer function can disable itself, is due to setting the paper cut option to partial or open the drawer in more than one setting. You have 4 Setting options / buttons: At the Start of the Document, Start of Page, End of Page and the End of Document. The printer needs to know what to do at each of these 4 stages. If you ask it to cut the paper or open the drawer in more than one of these stages, it will automatically reset the request as it can only carry out the function of cutting the paper and opening the drawer ONCE, which must be during one of the 4 stages above. You can ask it to open the drawer at the beginning of the Document, and cut the receipt paper at the end of the Document, but ALWAYS make sure you leave the other settings inactive.

Any questions please forward to this forum. Thanks

From Peter Moore at Barcode Index:

I registered with, located the manual for the TM88lll, went to page 2 of the users manual, it shows the dip switch table settings for serial connection printers.
(2) I then unscrewed the bottom metal plate underneath the printer (It has 2 dip switches 1 and 2), under dip switch 1 - I set it according to the transmission speed settings on the manual which states dip switch 1 - button 7 and 8 should be switched on, and that should increase it to rate 38400 from 9600

I then switched the printer back on with the feed button depressed, which confirmed that the dip switch settings had changed. I then went back to the port settings, changed the baud rate to 38400 and restarted the computer and printed off a test page at least 10 times faster than before
