Converting Epson printers used with Aloha and Micros to Lavu

Question

MPI is here to solve your problem with getting your older existing Epson printer that you use with your current Aloha or Micros system to work using an IP/Internet connection with POS Lavu.

Buy Epson Ethernet network cards from us on our store site at store.mpiprocessing.com, install them into your printer and follow these few short steps to have your printer up and working over an IP connection in no time.

I have done this with an Epson T-88iV printer, as well as an older TM U220B printer. If you are unsure whether this will work with your existing printer, give us a call at 800-518-5020 or send us an email at lavu@mpiprocessing.com, and we will walk you through it. 

T-88iV—

1. Turn printer upside down.

2. Unscrew and open small silver compartment on the bottom.

3. Make sure while printer is laying upside down, that the two little boxes that are on the bottom next to the compartment, that say DSW1 and DSW2 (Dip Switch 1 and Dip Switch 2) are upside down.

             ---What is a Dip Switch you ask? A Dip Switch is an arrangement of switches in a dual in-line         package used to select the operating mode of a device such as a printer.

4. When looking into the compartment, DSW1 is in the upper right section of the compartment, and DSW2 is in the lower left section.

5. Please make sure that DSW2 has the little mini switch #8 moved into the “on” position, which is when it is up.

6. Mini switches #1-#7 on DSW2 need to all be off/down.

7. Leave mini switched on DSW1 alone.

TM U220B--

1. Turn printer upside down.

2. Unscrew and open small silver compartment on the bottom.

3. Make sure while the printer is laying upside down, that the two little boxes that are on the bottom underneath the compartment, that say DSW1 and DSW2 are right side up.

4. Dip Switch 1 will be in the upper left hand corner, and Dip Switch 2 will be in the lower right hand corner.

5. Please make sure that on DSW1, there are no little switches turned to the “on” position. They all should be down or “off”.

6. On DSW2, mini switches #2 and #4 should be in the “on” position, which would be up.
