Chapter 5. Hexadecimal Dumping
This feature allows experienced users to see exactly what data is coming to the printer. This
can be useful in finding software problems. When you turn on the hexadecimal dump function,
the printer prints all commands and data in hexadecimal format along with a guide section to
help you find specific commands.
To use the hexadecimal dump function, follow these steps:
1.
After you make sure that the printer is off.
2.
Set DIP switch 8 to On.
3.
Turn on the printer, then the printer enters the hexadecimal dump mode.
4.
Run any software program that sends data to the printer. The printer will print all the
codes it receives in a two-column format. The first column contains the hexadecimal
codes and the second column gives the ASCII characters that correspond to the codes.
1B 21 00 1B 26 02 40 40
02 0D 1B 44 0A 14 1E 28
00 01 0A 41 0D 42 0A 43
