DHPOS timer bug

Post by Fifo » Wed Nov 05, 2014 9:46 am

Hi everyone,

When I use the “Timer” feature, DHPOS prints “at 0 per unit” on receipts instead of the actual unit price.

Any ideas on how to fix it?

Dale, you might want to update phpBB to version 3.1. It contains some amazing new features!

Bump.

Off-topic: why are you so bad over serial printer usage in DHPOS!? I am using a serial Epson TM-U220A and it works fine!

Fifo,

I am fine with serial printers. I have never tried to use one so I personally have never been disappointed by one.

However I receive lots of email, phone calls, and posts from folks that have been struggling with their serial printer for days or weeks with no luck in getting it to work.

So while you may have no problems can you please explain to me why so many users seem to?

Dale

Tell them to try this:

Code: Select all

1. mode com1=9600,n,8,1
2. mode lpt1=com1
3. set DHPOS to use LPT1

It’s probably because:
1. their printer isn’t feeding paper and they don’t know how to enable “Forced line feed”
2. the program can’t access the serial port

The only trouble I've had is when using whole milk. Otherwise nothing says breakfast like a byte of serial.
Though after dinner I prefer Serial port red wine.

Hehe.

I’ve been using the COM1=LPT1 redirection for a while now and it’s working flawlessly so far!
