This chapter explains the various sensors that this printer
is equipped with and the error indications accompanying them.
Sensors
Error Indications
27
Chapter 5 Sensors and Error Indications
Sensors
Printer Cover Open Sensor
This sensor reacts when the front cover is removed, indicated by the ERROR indicator
(cover open error). Printing is halted.
Head Up Sensor
If the head is moved to the head up position using the head up lever, it is indicated by the
ERROR indicator (Head Up Error.) Printing is halted.
Head Temperature Sensor
To protect the print head from overheating, this sensor functions when the head's temperature becomes high (approximately 60°C (140°F) or higher) and is indicated by the ERROR indicator (Head Overheat). Printing is halted. When the head's temperature drops
(approximately 55°C (131°F) or lower), printing resumes automatically.
Paper Sensor
5
This sensor is located in the paper path of the receipt printer and the journal printer. When
paper is inserted in the printer's paper path, the paper is loaded. If the paper in the paper
path runs out, it is indicated by the ERROR indicator (Paper End Error). Printing is halted.
Cutter Position Sensor
Cutter control is executed by means of the cutter position detection sensor. If detection of
the sensor remains ON or OF for 1 second or longer during cutter motor operation, the
printer judges that the cutter motor is locked and halts further cutter operation and printing
at that point.
28
Sensors
Paper Near End Sensor
This sensor is located on the roll paper holder on the receipt side and the journal side.
When the winding diameter of the roll paper becomes small, it is indicated by the ERROR
indicator. Since the amount of roll paper remaining may differ depending on the thickness
of the winding core, the near end sensor can be set so as to correspond to the thickness of
the winding core.
Setting Method
1. Loosen the adjustment screw holding the sensor lever.
2. Set the top end of the sensor lever on the correct step on the adjustment scale.
Adjustment Screw

Serial Interface
Protocols
X-ON/X-OFF Protocol
Control is by output of the codes for the data transmission request signal X-ON (11 Hex)
and the data transmission stop signal X-OFF (13 Hex). When sending the printer's status
to the Host, this is sent irrespective of the level of the DSR signal.
Conditions for Output of the X-ON Code
•
•
•
When all errors have been cleared.
When the remaining buffer capacity is greater than Non bytes.
After the power is turned on, when in the Ready to Receive state.
Conditions for Output of the X-OFF Code
•
•
When the printer has generated an error and has switched from Online to Offline.
When the remaining buffer capacity is Noff bytes or less.
* Even if the X-ON/X-OFF code output conditions are established, the same code is
not output two times in succession. However, times when the power is turned ON
are expected.
* When the menu setting error handshake is disabled, XON/XOFF is not output
when the error status changes.
DTR/DSR Protocol
Control is by the level of the DTR signal, Ready “High” /Busy “Low”.
If the printer's status is sent to the Host, it is sent when DSR is “High.” If DSR is “Low,”
the printer waits until it goes “High.”
Conditions for the DTR Signal to become Ready “High”
•
•
•
When all the errors have been cleared.
When the remaining buffer capacity is greater than Non bytes.
After the power is turned on, when in the Ready to Receive state.
Conditions for the DTR Signal to become Busy “Low”
•
•
When the printer has generated an error and has switched from Online to Offline.
When the remaining buffer capacity is Noff bytes or less.
* When the menu setting error handshake is disabled, the DTR signal does not change.
Conditions for Non and Noff (Units: Bytes)
•
•
When there is an 8 KB buffer.
Non=2048
Noff=1024
When there is a one line buffer.

(4) Printing in the page mode and return (FF)
Code: [0C] h
The data developed in the entire printing area are printed all at once and the printer
returns to the Standard mode.
• All the developed data are cleared after printing.
• The printing area set by ESC W is initialized.
• The paper cut is not executed.
• The head of the line is made the next printing position.
• This is valid only in the Page mode.
(5) Canceling of print data in the page mode
Code: [18] h
In the Page mode, this cancels all the data in the currently set printing area.
• Valid when Page mode is selected only.
• The portions of data included in the currently set printing area are canceled even if
they are data from a previously set printing area.
(6) Journal tab (RS)
Code: [1E] h
Moves the print position to the head of the journal paper.
[Note] Valid only when Receipt/Journal is selected, printing of the same data by the
receipt and journal printers is cleared and the print position is in the receipt area.
(7) Sending the status in real time [DLE EOT n)
Code: [10] h + [04] h + n
* (1 ≤ n ≤ 4) Data are expressed in Hex code.
The status is sent in real time according to the n specification.
• n is as follows.
n = 1: Sends the printer status.
n = 2: Sends the off-line factor status.
n = 3: Sends the error factor status.
n = 4: Sends the paper sensor status.

Input Data Format
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Each status shows the current state. Also, each status is 1 byte of data.
The status is sent without confirming the receiving ready state of the host computer.
Executed in the off-line state, when the receiving buffer is full and in the error
state.
This command is processed during reception.
In cases where the [10] h [04] h n (1 ≤ n ≤ 4) data string is received, even when it
is other than this command, the user's attention is necessary because the printer's
operation will be the same as when this command is executed.
[Example]
In ESC* m nl nh [dl....dk], d1 = [10] h, d2 = [04] h, d3 = [01] h.
Do not insert this command in the code strings of other commands consisting of
codes with 2 bytes or more.
[Example]
If the host side wants to send ESC 3 n, then DLE EOT 3 is sent just at the point
where ESC 3 has been sent, the printer will process the command as ESC 3 [10] h.
Therefore, the user's attention is necessary.
In cases where ASB is valid due to GS a, it is necessary to distinguish between the
status by this command and the ASB status.
Distinguishing the Sending Status
Since the values of specific bits in the status sent by this printer, it is possible to
distinguish which command's status is received.
However, in the case where ASB is used, after confirming the first byte of ASB,
process the next 3 bytes, excluding the XOFF, as ASB data. If this is not done, it
will be impossible to distinguish between status messages such as ESC u and the
second and subsequent bytes of ASB.

(8) Real time enquiry to printer (DLE ENQ n)
Code: [10] h + [05] h + n
* (1 ≤ n ≤ 2) Data are expressed in Hex code.
The printer responds to the requests from the host in real time according to the specification of n.
n = 1: Resumes printing from the head of the line where an error occurred after
recovery from that error.
n = 2: The printer recovers from the error after clearing the receiving buffer and
the print buffer.
• This command is enabled only when an auto cutter error has occurred.
• This command is processed when it is received.
• This command is executed even when the receiving buffer is full.
• In cases where the [10] h [05] h n (1 ≤ n ≤ 2) data string is received, even when it
is other than this command, the user's attention is necessary because the printer's
operation will be the same as when this command is executed.
[Example]
In ESC* m nl nh [d] k, d1 = [10] h, d2 = [05] h, d3 = [10] h.
• Do not insert this command in the code strings of other commands consisting of
codes with 2 bytes or more.
[Example]
If the host side wants to send ESC 3 n, then DLE EOT 3 is sent just at the point
where ESC 3 has been sent, the printer will process the command as ESC 3 [10] h.
Therefore, the user's attention is necessary.
• Even if DLE ENQ 2 is executed, the printer will maintain the state it was in when
an error with contents set by ESC !, ESC 3, etc. was generated. The printer can be
completely initialized by this command and ESC@.
(9) Printing of data in the page mode (ESC FF)
Code: [1B] h + [0C] h
This prints out all the data developed in the entire printing area in the Page mode at
once.
• This command is enabled only when Page mode is selected.
• The printer prints on the printing sheet selected by ESC c 0.
• The developed data, ESC T and ESC W setting values, and character development
positions are maintained even after printing.

(10) Setting the space between characters (ESC SP n)
Code: (1B) h + [20] h + n
* (0 ≤ n ≤ 20) Data are expressed in Hex code.
The space to the right of characters is set in [n x basic calculated pitch] inches.
• When the horizontal magnification of characters is 2 or greater, the amount of
space on the right becomes larger at the same magnification.
(1) This does not effect Kanji.
• The amount of space on the right side of characters can be set independently in the
Standard mode and the Page mode.
• The basic calculated pitch is set by GS P. Also, after the amount of right space is
set, this amount of space does not change even if the basic calculated pitch is
changed by GS P.
• If there is a fraction, interpolation is carried out at the mechanism's minimum pitch.
Remainders are cut off.
• In the Standard mode, the basic calculation pitch (x) in the horizontal direction is
used.
• In the Page mode, the basic calculation pitch used according to the starting point is
as follows.
(1) If the starting point is specified as "top left" or "bottom right" by ESC T, the
horizontal basic calculation pitch (x) is used.
(2) If the starting point is specified as "top right" or "bottom left" by ESC T, the
vertical basic calculation pitch (y) is used.
• The maximum value that can be set for the amount of right space is 255/203 inch.
Settings which exceed this maximum value are rounded to the maximum value.
• The minimum value is “n = 0”.

The next printing start position is specified as an absolute position with the left margin
position as the reference. The next printing start position is [(n1 +n2 x 256) x basic
calculation pitch] inch from the left margin position.
• A specification that exceeds the printing area is disregarded.
• The basic calculation pitch is set by GS P.
• If there is a fraction in the calculation results, it is interpolated at the mechanism's
minimum pitch. Remainders are cut off.
• The horizontal basic calculation pitch (x) is used in the Standard mode.
• The following operations are executed in the Page mode according to the starting
point.
(1) If the starting point is specified as "top left" or "bottom right" by ESC T, an
absolute position in a direction perpendicular to the paper feed direction (the
character's horizontal direction) is specified. The horizontal basic calculation
pitch (x) is used in calculations at this time.
(2) If the starting point is specified as "top right" or "bottom left" by ESC T, the
absolute position in the paper feed direction (the character's horizontal direction) is specified. The vertical basic calculation pitch (y) is used at this time.
(13) Specifying/Clearing the download character set (ESC % n)
Code: [1B] h + [25] h + n
* (0 ≤ n ≤ FF) Data are expressed in Hex code.
This command specifies and clears download characters.
• In n, the least significant bit (n0) becomes enabled. The meaning of the least
significant bit (n0) is as follows.
n0 = 0: The download character set is cleared.
n0 = 1: The download character set is specified.
• Download characters and a download bit image (GS *) cannot be defined at the
same time.

(32) Specifying the relative printing position (ESC \ n1 n2)
Code: [1B] h + [5C] h + n1 + n2
* (0 ≤ n1 ≤ FF)
(0 ≤ n2 ≤ FF) Data are expressed in Hex code.
This command specifies the next printing start position with the current position as the
reference point. the next printing start position is a position [(n1 + n2 x 256) x basic
calculation pitch] inches from the current position.
• This command is disregarded if the specification exceeds the printing area.
• If a position is specified which is to the right of the current position with respect to
the character orientation, the value is a positive number (plus), and if a position is
specified which is to the left, the value is a negative number (minus).
• Negative numbers are expressed as a complement of 65536.
For example, if shifting by N pitch to the left, this is expressed by n1 + n2 x 256 =
65536 - N.
• The basic calculation pitch is set by GS P.
• If there is a fraction as a result of calculations, interpolation is carried out at the
mechanism's minimum pitch. Remainders are cut off.
• The horizontal basic calculation pitch (x) is used in the Standard mode.
• In the Page mode, operation is as follows according to the starting point.
(1) If the starting point is specified as “top left” or “bottom right” by ESC T, the
relative position in the direction perpendicular to paper feed (the characters'
horizontal direction) is specified. At this time, the horizontal basic calculation
pitch (x) is used.
(2) If the starting point is specified as “top right” or “bottom left” by ESC T, the

Except for HRI characters, this command is valid for all characters.
If the setting of either the vertical enlargement rate or the horizontal enlargement
rate deviates from the definition range, this command is disregarded.
In the Standard mode, the vertical direction indicates the paper feed direction and
the horizontal direction indicates the direction perpendicular to the paper feed direction. Therefore, in specifying 90 degree rotated characters, the vertical-horizontal relationship with respect to the characters is reversed.
In the Page mode, the vertical direction indicates the vertical direction with respect
to the characters and the horizontal direction indicates the horizontal direction
with respect to the characters.
If characters with a different vertical enlargement rate are mixed on the same line,
they are arranged along the base line.
Horizontal and vertical double enlargement can also be specified and cleared by
ESC !, but the command that was processed last becomes the valid command.
The initial value is “n = 0”.

• An absolute position specification which exceeds the specified print area is disregarded.
• The data development start position does not shift in the characters' horizontal
direction.
• The starting point used as the reference is specified by ESC T.
• Movements from the starting point specified by ESC T are as follows.
(1) If “top left” or “bottom right” is specified as the starting point, the absolute
position in the paper feed direction (characters' vertical direction) is specified.
At this time, the vertical basic calculation pitch (y) is used.
(2) If “top right” or “bottom left” is specified as the starting point, the absolute
position in the direction perpendicular to the paper feed direction (characters'
vertical direction) is specified. At this time, the horizontal basic calculation
pitch (x) is used.

This command is valid only when input at the head of a line.
When Page mode is selected, if this command is input, the printer's internal flag
operation only is executed.
Setting of this command has no influence on the Page mode.
The maximum settable left margin is the same as the area in the horizontal direction that can be printed. Settings that exceed the maximum value are rounded to
the maximum value.
The basic calculation pitch is set by GS P. Also, once the left margin is set, it will
not change even if the basic calculation pitch is changed by GS P.
The horizontal basic calculation pitch (x) in GS P is used in calculating the left
margin. Also, if there is a fraction, interpolation is carried out at the mechanism's
minimum pitch. Remainders are cut off.
The left margin is set for the set sheet selected as valid by ESC c 1.
The left margin can be set independently for the receipt and journal printers, but if
printing of the same data in the receipt and journal printers is specified, the left
margin set in the journal printer is disregarded and that set in the receipt printer is
enabled.
The initial values are “n1 = 0” and “n2 = 2”.

This command is valid for printing of all characters except HRI characters.
The reduction rate is 50%.
Specification and clearing of printing reduced characters has no influence on the
line feed amount.
If printing of reduced characters in the vertical direction is specified in the Standard mode, then reduced characters are printed in the paper feed direction. Therefore, 90 degree right rotated characters are reduced in the characters' horizontal
direction.
If printing of reduced characters in the vertical direction is specified in the Page
mode, then reduced characters are printed in the characters' vertical direction without relation to the printing direction selected by ESC T.
If characters of different vertical sizes are mixed on the same line, they are arranged along the printing base line.
If reduction printing is specified, underlines are not added, even when underlines
are specified. However, the underline specifications are not cleared. Also, if an
underline is specified or cleared in the middle of a reduced printing specification,
the printer's internal flag operation only is executed.
Characters with a high dot density may be difficult to read clearly.
The initial value is “n = 0”.

(57) Setting the basic calculation pitch (GS P x y)
Code: [1D] h + [50] h + x + y
* (0 ≤ x ≤ FF)
(0 ≤ y ≤ FF) Data are expressed in Hex code.
This command sets the basic calculation pitch in the horizontal direction at (1/x) inch
and the basic calculation pitch in the vertical direction at (1/y) inch.
When x = 0, the horizontal basic calculation pitch returns to the initial value.
When y = 0, the vertical basic calculation pitch returns to the initial value.
• The vertical direction indicates the direction perpendicular to the paper feed direction, and the vertical direction indicates the paper feed direction.
• In the Standard mode, the parameters shown below are used without relationship
to the characters' direction (inverted, rotated 90 degrees to the right, etc.).
(1) Commands using x: ESC SP, ESC $, ESC \, FS S, GS L, GS W
(2) Commands using y: ESC 3, ESC J
• In the Page mode, the parameters shown below are used according to the characters' direction.
(1) If the starting point is “top left” or “bottom right” by ESC T, (characters are
developed in the direction perpendicular to the paper feed direction),
• Commands using x: ESC SP, ESC $, ESC W, ESC \, FS S
• Commands using y: ESC 3, ESC J, ESC W, GS $, GS \
(2) If the starting point is “bottom right” or “top left,” (characters are developed in
the paper feed direction)
• Commands using x: ESC 3, ESC J, ESC W, GS $, GS \
• Commands using y: ESC SP, ESC $, ESC W, ESC \, FS S
• Even when this command is executed, it has no influence on the various values
that are already set.
• If there is a fraction as a result of calculations combined with other commands,
interpolation is carried out at the mechanism's minimum pitch and remainders are
cut off.
• The initial values are “x = 203” and “y = 203”.

In the case of (1):
• When m = 1 or m = 31, a partial cut (1 point left) is executed.
In the case of (2):
• When n = 0, after executing paper feed to the cutting position, the paper is cut.
• When n ( 0, after executing paper feed [n x basic calculation pitch] inch from
the cutting position, the paper is cut.

This command is valid if it is input at the head of the line.
When the Page mode is selected, if this command is input, the printer's internal
flag operation only is executed.
Setting of this command has no influence on the Page mode.
The print area width is set for a setting sheet enabled by ESC c 1.
The print area width of the receipt and journal printers can be set independently,
but if printing of the same data in both the receipt and journal printers is specified,
the print area width set in the journal printer is disregarded and the setting of the
receipt printer is enabled.
If a value which exceeds the printable area of one line is input, it is set with the
entire area except the left margin used as the print area width.
The basic calculation pitch is set by GS P. Also, once the print area width has been
set, it will not change even if the basic calculation pitch is changed by GS P.
The horizontal basic calculation pitch (x) in GS P is used in calculating the print
area width. Also, if there is a fraction in the calculation results, interpolation is
carried out at the mechanism's minimum pitch. Remainders are cut off.

When developing a bit image (or a downloaded bit image), if the print area width
does not fill the bit image's minimum horizontal width (2 dots for single density, 1
dot for double density), the following processing is carried out for that line only.
(1) The print area is enlarged to the right until it is equal to the minimum horizontal width of the bit image, as long as it doesn't exceed the printable area.
(2) If a sufficient amount of space still cannot be secured by the processing in 1,
the print area is enlarged to the left (the left margin is reduced).
The initial value is “n1 = B0”, “n2 = 1”.

(60) Specifying the relative position of characters in
the vertical direction in the page mode (GS \ n1 n2)
Code: [1D] h + [5C] h + n1 + n2
* (0 ≤ n1 ≤ FF)
(0 ≤ n2 ≤ FF) Data are expressed in Hex code.
This command specifies the position in the characters' vertical direction of the data
development start position as the relative position with the current position as the reference, in the Page mode. The next data development start position is the position
after shifting from the current position [(n1 + n2 x 256) x basic calculation pitch] inch.
• This command is disregarded except when the Page mode is selected.
• If the downward direction from the current position, with respect to the characters,
is specified, the value is a positive number (plus). If the upward direction is specified, the value is a negative number (minus).
• Negative numbers are expressed as a complement of 65,536.
For example, if moving in the upward direction by N pitch,
n1 + n2 x 256 = 65536 – N.
• A relative position which exceeds the specified print area is disregarded.
• Operation according to the starting point by ESC T is as follows.
(1) If the starting point is specified as “top left” or “bottom right”, the relative
position in the paper feed direction (vertical direction of the characters) is specified. At this time, the vertical basic calculation pitch (y) is used.
(2) If the starting point is specified as “top right” or “bottom left”, the relative
position in the direction perpendicular to the paper feed direction (vertical direction of the characters) is specified. At this time, the horizontal basic calculation pitch (x) is used.
• The basic calculation pitch is set by GS P.
• If there is a fraction, interpolation is carried out at the mechanism's minimum pitch.
Remainders are cut off.

(0 ≤ n3 ≤ 1) Data are expressed in Hex code.
This command executes the contents defined by a macro.
• The meanings of n1~n3 are as follows.
n1: Number of times the macro is executed.
n2: Wait time when a macro is executed.
The printer waits n2 x 100 msec each time a macro is executed.
n3: Macro execution mode
n3 = 0: Specifies continuous execution.
n3 = 1: Specifies execution when the paper feed key is pressed.
Continuous Execution: The macro is executed continuously the number of
times in n1, with the time interval specified in n2 inserted between executions.
Execution by pressing the paper feed key: After waiting the length of time
specified in n2, the ERROR indicator blinks and the printer waits for the paper
feed key to be pressed. When the key is pressed, the macro is executed one
time. This operation is repeated the number of times specified in n1.
• If this command is received during macro definition, it means that the macro definition is terminated. At this time, the contents of the definition are cleared.
• If the macro is not defined or if n1 = 0, nothing is executed.
• During execution of a macro in the case that n3 = 1, paper feed cannot be done
using the paper feed switch.
• During the time the printer is waiting for macro execution, the ERROR indicator
blinks.

If even one of the status items is enabled, the printer sends the status when this
command is executed. After that, each time a status that is enabled changes, that
status is sent. At that time, each status expresses the current status, so it is possible
that a status that is not enabled for ASB will change.
If every status is disabled, the auto status sending function (ASB function) is disabled.
If the ASB function in the initial state is enabled, the status at the point when
communications were first enabled after the power was switched on is sent.
The 4-byte status shown below is sent without confirm whether the host is ready to
receive or not. Except for the XOFF code, the 4-byte status is always continuous.
This command is executed when the receiving buffer is developed, so there is a
possibility of delay between the reception of the command and sending of the
status due to the status of the receiving buffer.
Even at times when the printer specification is disabled due to peripheral device
selection (ESC =), if the status changes, the 4-byte status is sent.

In the case of (1):
• This command is ended by a NULL code.
• In the case of UPC-A and UPC-E, the bar code is printed at the point when 12
bytes of bar code data have been input, then data following next are processed as
ordinary data.
• In the case of JAN13, the bar code is printed at the point when 13 bytes of bar code
data have been input, then data following next are processed as ordinary data.
• In the case of JAN8, the bar code is printed at the point when 8 bytes of bar code
data have been input, then data following next are processed as ordinary data.
The number of data in an ITF bar code is always an even number. If the number of
data should happen to be odd, the final data are disregarded.
In the case of (2):
• s indicates the number of data. Then from the next data, n bytes are processed as
bar code data.
• If s deviates from the definition range, command processing is terminated and
processing of data from the next data is as for processing of ordinary data.
In the case of the Standard mode:
• If D deviates from the definition range, a paper feed only is executed and processing of data from the next data is as for processing of ordinary data.
• If the horizontal width of a bar code exceeds the one line printing range, the bar
code is not printed, but a paper feed only is executed.
• Paper feed by the amount of the bar code height (including HRI characters when
HRI characters are specified) is executed without relationship to the line feed amount
set by ESC 3, ESC 2, etc.
• This command is disregarded when data exist in the print buffer.
• When character code Dn is a character that cannot be printed, subsequent data are
treated as ordinary characters.
• After printing of a bar code is completed, the head of the line is made the next print
position.
• Except for inverted characters, the print mode (bold characters, double strike characters, underline, character size) has no influence.
In the case of Page Mode:
• Development of the bar code only is executed and printing is not done. When
development of the bar code is completed, the next dot after the last bar code data
is made the development start position for the next data.
• If D deviates from the definition range, command processing is terminated and
processing of the next data is the same as for ordinary data.
• At this time, the data development start position is not shifted.
• If the horizontal width of a bar code exceeds the print area, the bar code is not
printed and the data development start position is moved to the left edge of the
place where it deviated from the print area.

This commands sends the specified status.
n = 1, 31: Sends the paper sensor status.
n = 2, 32: Sends the drawer kick connector status.
• When the printer has Serial interface specifications:
In the case of DTR/DSR Control: After confirming that the host computer is ready
to receive, the status is sent. If it is impossible
for the host to receive, waiting continues until
it is possible for it to receive.
In the case of XON/OFF Control: The printer sends the status without confirming
if it is possible or impossible for the host computer to receive.
• This command is executed during development of the receiving buffer, so if a
command is received in accordance with the receiving buffer's state, there is a
possibility of a delay occurring while the status is being sent.
• If ASB is enabled by GS a, it is necessary to distinguish between the status from
this command and the status from ASB. See pages 50~53 for the identification
method.
