What do we need to check before using receipt printer?
1. Check if the printer is online. On most printers, there is a light next to the "OnLine" button indicating the online status. Normally, the online light should be on. If the indicator is off or flashing, it means that the connection is abnormal. Focus on checking whether the printer power is on, whether the printer power switch is on, and whether the printer cable is connected properly. If the online indicator is normal, turn off the printer, and then turn it on again to see if the print test page is normal.mobile printer
