2.2 Paper Installation
2.2.1 Paper Loading
SP-POS88III adopts 80mm width thermal paper roll.
If you prepare to load the paper, you can do as the following steps.
Hold down the upper cover button, open the movable upper cover, move
away the old paper roll, and put the new thermal paper in the paper holder
of printer, draw a certain length of the paper roll, put the paper end on the
print head, close the upper cover and press it downwards lightly until it
restore to original position, and the paper end appears from the paper-out
slot which is on the upper cover, then print paper installation is finished.

Caution!
1. When there is no paper in the print head, don’t press 【FEED】
button, avoiding to shorten the print head life;
2. Please don’t feed or draw the paper forwards or backwards with
hands. When returning paper, please cut the extra paper, and press
【LF】button, paper will go forwards.
2.2.2 Solution to Paper Jam
Turn power off, open the upper cover, hold down the black rubber cutter
lever, at the same time move the cutter forwards slowly, can separate the
cutter from the print head. Then lift the print head lever forwards to
maximum position, draw out the paper slowly with hand.

2.4 Buttons and Indicators
There is one button and three indicators on SP-POS88 Ⅲ printer. 【FEED】
is paper feeding button, the function of its enabling or disabling the button
on/off can be set by print command, when the button is enabled, press
【FEED】 button, then the paper presenting driver starts up and paper fed
10
SPRT
into the printer; release【FEED】 button, paper feeding stops. The green
POWER light is the power indicator, red ERROR light is status indicator, it
is dark when the printer works normally, while it flashes when reporting an
abnormal emergency, as the following form shows:

When the assemblies of printer appear the foresaid errors, parallel interface
/ERR pin became “0”signal level, and automatically send one byte
ERROR code through TXD parallel interface, the status of printer can be
transmitted by ESC v command.
Red PAPEROUT light is paper end indicator. When there is no paper in the
print head, the indicator flashes, and sends one byte 84H code through
TXD serial interface, while it goes dark in normal status.
2.5 Self-test
The self-test will check the condition of printer, if the printer prints out the
self-test receipt correctly, it means the printer works normally. Otherwise it
needs to repair.
The self-test will print out the firmware version, interface setting and 128
11
SPRT
ANK characters.
Hold down【FEED】button and turn on the power, then release the button,
self-test begins automatically at this moment.

Explanation:
Printer carries out cutting paper operation once. n=0, n=1 or 49 is for
cutting paper immediately, the said ways needn’t to specify m. When n=66,
should feed paper the number of dot lines set by m, then cut paper,
0≤m≤255. Each dot for SP-POS88Ⅲ printer is 1/203 inch or 0.125mm. It

SPRT
can realize whole cutting or half cutting through changing the cutter.
