I know some of you guys run a business and tinker with computers so I thought I'd ask here.
I've got an old Eltron P2022 thermal printer that I can't get to work in line mode. (Send it a line and print.) I had to reprogram it for bar code labels (page mode) because the battery in the memory cartridge was indicating low and I pulled it without thinking. The memory will only last about 5 minutes without the battery.
Any way, I'd like to use it on a scale now but can't get it to print the data lines from the scale. I've checked the scale output via Windows HyperTerminal and it works there. I just can't get the printer to accept it. Both are serial 9600,8,N,1 and connected via a DB-9 cable.
Would anyone happen to have a copy of the User Manual for this old printer? Or know how to set it for line mode? I have the programming manual but not the user manual. I'm wondering if this printer will even go into line mode. HELP!
One other thing--I had the scale cable going straight to the printer and not the KDU. Would that matter?
