What is the difference between parallel and serial communication?
Parallel and serial communications are two distinct ways of getting data from a PC to our printer. Serial communication transmits data on only 2 wires, one for sending and one for receiving one bit at a time. Parallel communication transmits data across multiple wires simultaneously. This provides a faster means of data transmission than serial. A parallel printer must be connected to a parallel port, commonly labeled as an LPT port on a PC. The LPT port should be set for bi-directional, standard, or SPP. A serial printer must be connected to a serial port, commonly labeled as a COM port on a PC. The COM port settings must match the printer serial settings to communicate properly. Please consult your PC’s literature to learn how to change these setting.
What printer driver should I be using?
The correct printer driver depends on what Operating System you are using. You can find the drivers on our website. Drivers & Downloads
Why won’t my cash drawer open that is connected to my printer?
The Ithaca 9000 printer has an RJ11 cash drawer port for connecting a cash drawer. This port is hard wired for an EPSON configuration. When purchasing a cash drawer to use with this printer, an Epson cash drawer cable must be ordered. Cash drawer cables are not available from TransAct. Once you have the correct cable, you will still need to send the correct cash drawer command code to the printer to open the drawer. The cash drawer code depends on the Emulation Mode the printer is in. This can be determined by printing a configuration listing. See Manual Configuration for how to print out this listing. The follow are the codes for the common Emulation Modes:
Why won't my printer cut?
The printer will cut the paper when the printer receives the cut command from the system. This command code depends on the Emulation Mode the printer is in. This can be determined by printing a configuration listing. See Manual Configuration for how to print out this listing. The follow are the codes for the common Emulation Modes:
When I print to my Ithaca 9000 printer nothing prints?
The Ithaca 9000 printer is a thermal printer that requires thermal paper. Verify the paper you are using is thermal paper. Make sure the paper is loaded properly. To load paper, simple drop the paper roll into the printer with the paper coming from the bottom of the roll. Pull the paper out a little bit, and close the lid. Printer should cut the paper, and be ready to print. (No error LED, just solid Green LED) Verify you have selected the correct communication port on the system. If the printer has a serial port, make sure you are connected to the serial port of the PC with a serial null-Modem cable. Verify that the configuration settings of the printer are set to the correct Emulation Mode and communication settings for your system. See Manual Configuration for how to print out this listing.
I have an ethernet interface on my printer, and I can ping to my printer, but I can't print to it. Why?
The most common reason why this happens is because the "Enable bidirectional support" checkbox is checked under the Ports tab in the Properties of your printer. To uncheck this, go to your Printers and Faxes/Devices and Printers page, right click on your printer and select Properties/Printer Properties, click the Ports tab, uncheck the "Enable birdirectional support" checkbox, then click the Apply button, and then click the OK button.
Why do I get an “Error encountered in opening lang mon Registry” when trying to save changes in the properties of the Windows driver?
The “Lang Mon” error is due to the driver's lack of privileges writing to the registry.
If you encounter this error, please use the “TransactPrinterProperties.exe” program found in the Utilities folder that comes with the Windows drivers.
Note: You must Right Click the TransactPrinterProperties.exe program and select Run as administrator to allow the changes to be saved to the registry.
Change values as you want them, and then click the Save Changes button.
Then Select Yes to allow the Windows Print Spooler to be restarted for the change to take effect.
