First Timer Thermal Print Setup Issues

Hi, Thanks for the great app and for this great community support.

I’m setting up SambaPOS for the first time and having hard time with the printer setup. Following is my issues:

  1. There’s “B” letter that always showing up at the top left, and it shift any text even bmp image.

  2. The < T > command, showing a Chinese character instead of =====

I tried to change from codepage Turkis to 437 .
I tried char replacement: 鞍=O,░=O , it doesn’t work.

  1. How do I set for 58mm paper?

I tried to limit from the “Line Character Count” to 31 , what happened is that it overlap my product name.

  1. The last line is also printed below of the cutter, which mean I have to press feed button on the printer .

Oh, yes I’m using the EPPOS T58Z thermal printer
Sorry for my bad grammar.

Is it set up as a Ticket, Text, HTML, Raw, or Port printer?

Copy/paste your Printer Template here in the forum, highlight it, then click the code button </> so that it is displayed here properly.

Post screenshots of your Printer settings from SambaPOS.

Look in your Printer Driver or Printer Utility to see if there is a language/code page/character set setting available in there. This is also where you should find settings for <CUT>. Otherwise, you may need to add blank lines to the bottom of your Template.

Hi Sir,

Thanks I just simply don’t use that special character and replace with another characters. The only problem that still left now is only the “B” letter, but is not SambaPOS problem instead is the printer problem, even if I print using Notepad also come out that letter.

So I will change this to answered question. Thanks so much

Lesson learnt, cheap printer is bad… no setting on the printer etc.

what kind of thermal printer that qualify to sambaPOS?

SambaPOS will use any windows printer. If it shows up in windows as a printer then Samba can use it.
