    When using StarPRNT emulation

    To use the StarPRNT emulation, set the emulation setting of the printer to “StarPRNT”. To change the emulation, proceed as follows. (For SM-L200 and SM-L300, it does not need to switch the emulation.)

    1. Turn the printer power and open the printer cover.

    2. Press and hold the POWER button and the FEED button simultaneously. As soon as the ERROR lamp flashes five times, release the buttons. The emulation switchover takes place automatically.

    3. After setting a paper, close the printer cover. The set emulation is printed out.

      ESC/POS : EMU = ESC/POS

      StarPRNT : EMU = StarPRNT

      If the emulation is not switched correctly, repeat the above steps 1 to 3.At that time, in step 2, make sure not to release the buttons until the lamp completes the 5th flash.

    4. Please reboot the printer after switching the emulation. *It will be valid after rebooting the printer.

1.5. Connecting a printer to a Device

1.5.1. Bluetooth Interface

If you are using a Windows device, please disable Auto Connection setting. The setting can be confirmed by Test Print which can be executed by holding down the printer’s feed button while turning the printer on.

All Star Bluetooth devices have each initial device name as a factory default setting, such as “Star Micronics” and “DK-AirCash”. When using multiple devices, which have same device name, it is useful to change the device name for identifying each device easily.

You can change the LAN/Bluetooth settings of the Star POS device, such as changing the Bluetooth device name. Please use the Utility/Driver .

  • TSP100IIIBI

    When using, set the TSP100 futurePRNT software “Continuous printer connection setting” function to disabled.If this function is enabled, applications other than futurePRNT will be unable to communicate with TSP100IIIBI.

  • About setting change

    Please use TSP100 future PRNT software

1.5.2. Ethernet Interface

Assign an IP Address to the Star Printer and connect it to the network.Standard Star Printers do not ship with an IP Address pre-assigned; this can set by a DHCP network.

Use Star POS Printers with the #9100 Multi Session disabled.The setting can be confirmed by Test Print which can be executed by holding down the printer’s feed button while turning the printer on.

Refer to “guidelines-ethernet_en.pdf” for how to confirm and change the #9100 Multi Session setting and how to set the Static IP Address.

You can set up your POS Printers which can connect to TCP/IP. Please use the Utility/Driver .

TSP100IIIUtility and Star Setting Utility cannot be used with printers where an IP address has not been assigned (IP address 0.0.0.0).

This software uses TCP communication port 9100, TCP communication port 9100, UDP communication port 2222.

1.5.3. Wireless LAN Interface

Connecting Tablet/PC. See the Online manual (Setup - Connect Tablet/PC) .
