Hi! What the model of printer do you use? When has the issue started? After last update or from the beginning of using printer? Additional details can be very helpful. Looking forward to hear from you

Hello i recently bought NETUM NT-1809DD bluetooth thermal printer from aliexpress.

It works but sometimes like 1 in 10 times it writes weird characters like in the picture below.I tried different settings and configuration it didnt worked in "other model" selection of loyverse printer settings.i tried Selecting model as epson tm-m30 it wrote but this time i think epson paper width is larger than 58mm so end of the letter and total price wasnt visable and no setting to adjust in loyverse on epson model.Are there any solution for this in the loyverse or we are only allowed to use loyverse recommended printers.

Based on the problem you described, the cause may be in one of 2 cases.

  1. First, the printer has a small buffer, and therefore when graphics are being printed, the buffer does not have time to process it and starts to choke.
  2. The second possible reason is that the printer may not support the esk / pse command flash buffer, which flushes the printer buffer before receiving a new piece of information.

Considering that your printer is bluetooth-enabled, which means that it has a slow exchange rate, I would recommend that you use text mode instead of graphic mode.

Thanks for your answer john. 
In the software they give to me there is a pos58 serial port settings and setting baud rate there which is shown on the screenshot.Default is 19200
Can i make it work with playing these settings?

      After turning my receipt printer on, it prints perfect receipts for the first order. It also lets me print multiple receipts for the first order and they are all fine. For the second and subsequent orders the receipts are gibberish. If I power cycle (off then on) the printer in it will once again print the first order perfectly, but reverts to printing garbage on all subsequent orders.
      The printer is a generic thermal printer with usb, serial, ethernet and WiFi interfaces. I am currently using WiFi. The issue exists whether I use an Android tablet or my smartphone. Presumably, I need to send some sort of start up command sequence to the printer in order to intitialise it. 
      Has anyone experienced this type of problem or can anyone offer a suggestion as to how I can rectify this issue?

      I know this has been asked a thousand times already... I have followed the instructions to change the printer to "other model" and use the Initial ESC/POS commands as 1C,70,01,00.
      That did not work.
      Saw that someone else recommended using the Hex code for the image in the Initial ESC/POS commands. But I am unable to find the Hex code in the Epson Utility.
      Has anyone gotten it to work with the T88V? or have any other solutions?

      My Epson TM-M10
      It prints everything a bit too far to the left and leaves too much space on the right margin.
      I added the following ESC/POS command
      1B,61,01
      It kinda works because it centres all the text which is not really what I want.
      I prefer to move everything about 3-4mm to the right.
       
      Anyone know what ESC/POS command to use for that?
      My printer is set up as an other printer.
       
      PS. I have gone through every setting and adjusting the paper width but 48mm is the max setting I can use.

      Hello,
      For anyone having trouble with their bills print being cut off from the right, the following command will help: B6,6C,9A
      just write in the Initial ESC/POS commands area in advanced settings
      Also you can find more command info that might help other situations in: http://www.ekka.com.ua/files/doc/ma501_4421_00_rev14.pdf
      Hope it helps!

       
      NOTE: Just to clarify, i do not own the MP-4000 TH POS Printer mentioned in the manual, but most commands did work for my off-brand Bluetooth thermal printer, so it might also work for yours
