7193 Service Guide
Chapter 1: About the 7193 Printer
Chapter 1: About the 7193 Printer
The 7193 thermal receipt printer is fast, quiet, and very reliable. With thermal printing
technology, there is no ribbon cassette to change, and paper loading is extremely simple.
The printer is small enough to fit almost anywhere and is easy to use with the receipt
exiting from the top. There is no journal as it is kept electronically by the host system.
Models
There are several models of the 7193 depending on the communication interface and the
combination of options selected.
Communication Interfaces
•
RS-232C
•
Parallel
•

Thermal Printhead
The 7193 uses a thermal printhead which is extremely fast and quiet. Because it uses heat
to print directly on paper, there is no cassette or ribbon to change, eliminating soiled
fingers and paper dust.
The printhead is designed for a very long life, but it may be replaced if needed. See
“Troubleshooting” later in this book for information on when to replace the printhead. See
“Removing the Printhead” in “Disassembling and Reassembling the Printer” later in this
2

7193 Service Guide
Chapter 1: About the 7193 Printer
book for instructions on replacing the printhead. See “Cleaning the Printer” later in this
chapter for cleaning instructions for the printhead.
Cleaning the Printer
Cleaning the Cabinet
Clean the cabinet as needed to remove dust and finger marks. Use any household cleaner
made for plastics, but test it first on a small unseen area. If the receipt paper bucket is dirty,
wipe it with a clean, damp cloth. The cabinet materials and finish are durable and are
resistant to the following items:
•
Cleaning solutions
•
Lubricants
•
Fuels
•
Cooking oils
•
Ultraviolet light
Cleaning the Thermal Printhead
If the printhead appears dirty, clean it with cotton swabs and rubbing alcohol.
Caution: Do not spray the thermal printhead with household cleaner as this may damage
it and the electronics.
If spotty or light printing problems persist after cleaning the thermal printhead, contact
your NCR authorized service representative.
Note: The thermal printhead does not normally require cleaning if the recommended
paper grades are used. If non-recommended paper has been used for an extended period
of time, cleaning the printhead with the alcohol pen will not be of much benefit.
If this is the case, the printhead will need to be changed. See “Removing the Printhead” in
“Disassembling and Reassembling the Printer” later in this book for instructions on
replacing the printhead.

Choosing a Location
The 7193 is compact and requires little counter space. It may even be mounted on a wall if
space is at a premium. See “Mounting the Printer on a Wall” later in this chapter. The
power supply, if used, may also be mounted on a wall or under a table. See “Mounting the
Power Supply on a Wall” later in this chapter. Be sure to plan for the length of the
communication and power cables when choosing a location.
Make sure there is enough room to open the receipt cover and change the paper. The
following illustration shows the actual dimensions of the printer, but leave several inches
around the printer for connecting and accessing the cables.
Setting Switches
The DIP switches control communication between the printer and host computer and are
located on the bottom of the printer. The switches are used for the following purposes:
•
To set variables for several printer functions (see the sections for the various printer
functions in “Level 1 Diagnostics” in the “Diagnostics” chapter)
•
To perform diagnostic tests (see the sections for the various diagnostic tests in “Level 1
Diagnostics” in the “Diagnostics” chapter)
•
To set communication parameters for the RS-232C communication interface
(see “RS-232C Switch Settings” later in this chapter)
•
To set the data buffer for the Parallel communication interface (see “Parallel Switch
Settings” later in this chapter)
•
To set the address bits for the LCSIO (RS-485) communication interface
(see “LCSIO—RS-485 Switch Settings” later in this chapter)
Caution: The DIP switches are set at the factory to predetermined settings and should
generally not be changed. If you must change the settings do so carefully to avoid
changing other functions.
Before changing any of the switches, first run the print test to print out the current switch
settings on the receipt. See “Testing the Printer” later in this chapter for instructions on
running the print test and for a sample printout.

Connecting Cash Drawer Cables
The cash drawer option is available with RS-232C interface and Parallel interface models.
This option allows up to two cash drawers to be connected to the printer in a system with a
PC that has no connectors for the cash drawer cables. The cash drawer cables usually come
with the cash drawer.
The cash drawers are operated by software command from the host computer through the
printer. For additional information on the printer commands used by the host computer to
activate the cash drawers, see “Appendix E: Commands.”
1.
Plug the cash drawer cables into the connectors on the printer.
The connectors are standard phone connectors.
2.
If only one cash drawer is used, plug the cable into the connector labeled 1.
Note: Some 7193 models may appear slightly different than what is shown in the
illustration. The procedures are the same for all models unless otherwise noted.

Testing the Printer
Run this test to check the printer. The test prints the settings for several functions, prints all
variations of the character sets, and partially cuts the paper between each variation. See the
“Diagnostics” chapter for a description of the functions.
A sample printout (RS-232C) is shown later in this section. The printouts for other models
are similar. The test ends with a partial cut, then begins again. Several feet of paper can be
used to print one pass of the test.
Running the test is slightly different for printers receiving power from the host computer
and printers receiving power from a power supply.
Additional diagnostic tests may be performed. For more information, see “Diagnostics”
later in this book.

Chapter 2: Installing the Printer
Mounting the Printer on a Wall
Use the wall-mount kit to mount the printer vertically on a wall. See “Appendix B:
Ordering Paper and Supplies” for information on ordering the printer wall-mount kit.
The kit contains a mounting bracket, screws with plastic anchors, and a label. Once the
printer is mounted on the wall, the operator panel will be upside down. The label corrects
this so the panel can be easily read.
Select a wall that is accessible, but away from main traffic to keep the printer from being
bumped or knocked off. Be sure there are no hidden wires or other obstructions in the wall
where you mount the printer. Keep in mind the length of the cables when mounting the
printer on the wall.
Be sure that the rubber pads have been attached to the bottom of the printer. The rubber
pads help the printer to fit snugly against the mounting bracket.
You will need a 1/4 inch drill bit and either a Phillips or standard screwdriver (screws are
combination Phillips and pan-slotted).
1.
Using the bracket as a template, mark and drill a hole for each plastic anchor 1.25
inches deep.
2.
Insert the anchors into the holes so they are flush with the wall surface and screw the
bracket against the wall, tightening the screws so that the plastic anchors expand and
hold firmly in the wall.
Do not overtighten the screws.
Note: Because the power cable and communication cable connect to the bottom of the
printer, they must be connected before the printer can be attached to the bracket. If you
haven't connected the cables to the printer, do so now. See “Connecting Communication
and Power Cables” earlier in this chapter.
3.
Line up the tabs of the bracket with the slots on the back of the printer and attach the
printer to the bracket.
4.
Place the label on the cover.

Chapter 3: Diagnostics
The following diagnostic tests are available for the 7193:
•
Level 0 Diagnostics
Performed during the startup cycle
•
Level 1 Diagnostics (setup mode)
Available in a dedicated environment and accessed through the DIP Switches
•
Level 2 Diagnostics
Performed during normal printer operation
Level 0 Diagnostics
The printer performs level 0 diagnostics during the startup cycle when power is supplied
to the printer. Models that receive power from a power supply (remote) also run Level 0
Diagnostics when the printer is brought on-line (On Line button is pressed). Level 0
diagnostics comprise the following actions:
•
Motors are turned off
•
Microprocessor timing is checked, CRC check of the firmware ROM is performed,
external RAM is read (failure causes level 0 diagnostics to stop; the printer beeps once
when the test is successfully completed)
•
Checks if paper is present
•
Homes knife (failure causes a fault condition)
•
Checks if receipt cover is closed (failure does not interrupt the startup cycle)
When the last step is complete, the Paper Feed button is enabled and the printer is ready
for normal operation. Information about the test is available to the communication
interface through the commands.
If the printer has not been turned on before, or a new EEROM has been installed, the
default values for the printer settings (set in Level 1 Diagnostics) will be loaded into the
EEROM. The printer beeps twice when this occurs. See the tables in “Level 1 Diagnostics”
for the printer settings. If the printer beeps twice at any other time, it indicates that the
EEROM has failed.

Chapter 3: Diagnostics
7193 Service Guide
Level 1 Diagnostics
Level 1 Diagnostics (setup mode) allow you to change the settings for various printer
functions (described on the following pages) and to run certain tests using the DIP
switches.
Keep the following information in mind when changing the settings:
•
Turn the power off (not required, but recommended).
•
Remote models: press the On Line button (although the printer still receives
power, this is sufficient for changing the DIP switches)
•
Integrated models: turn the host computer off.
•
The settings can only be changed when the printer is in level 1 diagnostics (setup
mode): switch 1 must be set to On.
•
Turn the power back on. The printer beeps, and the On Line light (green) blinks
(remote models only).
•
Once the settings have been changed and stored in the EEROM, the DIP switches must
be set back to the on-line settings for the printer to operate.
•
The stored settings for the functions are printed with a dump of all resident characters
during a print test. See “Testing the Printer” in “Chapter 2: Installing the Printer.”
•
The default settings are set at the factory and are stored in the history EEROM.
Caution: If you change the switch settings, be sure they are the correct settings for that
particular function or test to avoid accidentally changing the settings for another function
or test. If the settings are accidentally changed, use the switch settings shown in the tables
throughout this section to change those settings.
The functions and tests are described in the following order in this section:
22
•
Setting Data Error (RS-232C) and Data Buffer (RS-232C and Parallel) options
•
Setting printhead resistance
•
Setting default lines per inch
•

This chapter explains how to completely disassemble and reassemble the 7193 printer. The
7193 is a relatively simple printer with a straightforward design and is easy to service. This
information may be used as an aid for training service personnel as well as a reference
guide for servicing the printer in the field.
Note: Some 7193 models may appear slightly different than what is shown in the
illustrations. The procedures are the same for all models unless otherwise noted.
Getting Started
Tools
You will need the following tools to disassemble the printer:
•
Torx® drivers
•
#1 and #2 Posi drivers
•
1½ mm hex driver (for disassembly of optional knife)
•
Small flathead screwdriver
Caution: Before working on the printer be sure that it has been turned off and unplugged
from both the host system and the power supply (if the power supply is used). Wear a

Removing the Receipt Cover
1.
Turn off the host system or unplug the power supply (if used).
2.
Disconnect the communication and power cables.
Models receiving power from the host system (integrated) use one cable for
communication and power. Models receiving power from a power supply (remote)
use one cable for communication and a separate cable for power.
3.
With the printer facing you, lift the receipt cover, pull it upward and slightly to the
right to detach it from the printer at its hinges.
While removing the cover, hold down on the printer with your other hand.
Removing the Platen (Non-Knife Units Only)
The platen can be replaced on non-knife units only. In some cases, it may be better to
replace the entire receipt cover.
Caution: Be careful when removing the paper guide. It may break. If it does break, you
need to replace the entire receipt cover. The paper guide is not stocked as a separate item.
1.
Remove the paper guide by pulling out from the center.
The sides should bow slightly releasing the paper guide arms from the tabs.
2.
Remove the platen by prying on one side of the platen shaft with a screwdriver from
behind until it pops out.
The other side will slide easily out.

Density of Receipt Print Lines
When the 7193 prints high density print lines (text or graphics), it automatically slows
down to a rate slower than 600 lines per minute. High density print lines are defined as
lines with over 57% of the dots printing on the line (there are 448 total dot columns on the
print station).
Duty Cycle Restrictions (Printing Solid Blocks)
There are restrictions on the duty cycle because of the heat generated by the receipt
thermal printhead when printing solid blocks (regardless of the length of the block in
relation to the print line). The restrictions are ambient temperature, the percentage of time
(measured against one minute) of continuous solid printing, and the amount of coverage.
Caution: When the duty cycle approches the limits shown in the table, the receipt
printhead will heat up and shut down. This may damage the printhead.
To avoid this problem, do one or a combination of the following:
1.
Reduce the amount of coverage.
2.
Reduce the time of continuous solid printing.
3.
Reduce the ambient temperature.

Appendix E: Commands
The commands control all operations and functions of the 7193 printer, from selecting the
size and placement of characters and graphics on the receipt to feeding and cutting the
paper.
Note: All versions of the 7193 use the same commands as listed in this section unless
otherwise noted. For example, the Parallel interface does require unique commands for
controlling the cash drawer.
The 7193 commands emulate two printers: the NCR 7150™ Multifunction printer and the
Epson TM-T80™ Thermal printer. Any of the commands from either set may be used in
any combination to program a host system to communicate with the 7193 (unless otherwise
noted).
Some commands listed here are not implemented in the 7193 (they are identified as not
implemented). If received, they are ignored and not sent to the print buffer as data. Nonlegal commands are sent to the print buffer as data.
