Docket Printer/Cash Draw option greyed out and not working!

Hi Everyone!

 

One of the stores I look after has come in this morning, and the docket printer and cash drawer are not functioning.  Upon investigation, the check-box to "Use Docket Printer" and "Use Cash Drawer" are both unchecked and greyed-out!  So they can't be selected at all!

 

Drivers have been uninstalled and re-installed.

Machines have been reset.

Machines have had connections all checked.

 

Docket printer prints from Notepad just fine.

 

What's happened here, and how can we get a fix?

Possibly a permissions issue? RM requires full administrative privileges to read and write to the windows registry, that's where it stores settings for printers. What version of Retail Manager & Windows have you? And is it setup usually via serial (or virtual com port) or USB connection as a windows printer?

Still nothing Printer is recognised by MYOB and so is the register.
MYOB is V11 running Win7. RM has full permission
Connected via USB

Re: Docket Printer/Cash Draw option greyed out and not working!

v11 of RM requires your USB printer to have a virtual com port, it won't work with just the regular windows printer drivers. Can you go to the windows control panel, then into system, and into the device manager, take a look under ports and see if you can see a COM port number with your printer's name..

 

What make and model of printer are you using?

Welcome to the Community Forum @BacchusGT, we hope you find it beneficial for your MYOB queries.

 

I believe you are uploading the screenshot on behalf of GameTraders? If so, have you already tried to reconnect the Epson TM T88V through the top toolbar Setup > Hardware in the program? Have you also tried reinstalling the printer under a different COM port?

Please let us know how you go as we are happy to assist further.

Kind Regards
