6032 Printer FAQs

 

  1. How do I get my printer to "beep" when the trigger is pressed?

     
    bulletThe "beep" function was introduced February 2003. Older units prior to this date may 
    need the firmware updated. Send the printer in to Service with a note requesting the 
    latest firmware with the "beep" function installed.
     
    bulletCheck the volume of the printer. Contact technical support for more information.

    Caution: The connection to the speaker may become disconnected if the printer was dropped or hit hard. Contact technical support for more information.

  2. My printer erases characters when I press the backspace button. Previous versions used to underline the character.

    Firmware version 1.5 of the 6032 uses the backspace key just like Scout 6020 and 6021 printers which erases characters. Reflashing the printer to version 1.5 or higher will update the printer.

    Note:If your printer is still under warranty, send it to service with a note requesting firmware 
    1.5. This is covered under the standard warranty agreement that came with the printer.

    Warning: Incorrect loading of the printer can cause physical damage to the printer that requires repair/replacement of parts, and may not be covered under warranty.

  5. My printer will not communicate through my cable.

     
    bulletFor models 6030 and 6035: Make sure the ring around the communications port on the 
    printer is not pressed in. Make sure the pins in the cable are no bent.
     
    bulletFor model 6037: Make sure that the cable is pressed all the way in. If connected correctly,
    the cable will click into place.
     
    bulletMake sure all parameters on the Host and Printer's Serial port match exactly. There is no one specific setting that works for everyone. Make sure that you're using the settings given to operate on your system configuration.
