Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Imagestore - Brainydeal SC9-2012 High-speed 58mm POS Receipt Thermal Printer USB Black (Office Product)
This product works great! It is USB just as described. Yes the instructions are a bit confusing because of translation but it didn't take long to figure out.
Here are some tips to help you with instalation for windows 7:
On the instal CD choos file named Drivers. Install driver POS58 in the instal dialog it will give you the option to select a port. Do not choose LPT1 instead choose USB001 and procede with instalation.
In your POS system set up your page margin to 0 for all sides. If your pos is web based also take away the title, page number etc. from your page printing setting for your browser. You can do this under page setup.
If you want to spend more go ahead but this product is a great value for the cost.

Thank you! Thank you!! I was about to call Amazon for a refund because we couldn't get the printer to print from our POS software. All we needed to do was change the port on the properties and now it works like a charm. Didn't even think to do that until we read this review. Much appreciated!!

The problem is your printer port. Make sure you have changed it to USB001. The Mode light will always be red so don't worry about that. To change the printer port follow the following instructions:
insert install CD open file named tools. Now Open IPrinter then open the Iprinter icon (the one with the color blocks).
Under Select Comm Port: choose USB001 and save. That should get your printer working properly. Also make sure to set up your margins properly. This instructions as well as the ones above are for windows 7 systems.
Hope it helps

Does anyone know what the decimal code to this printer is? My pos software asks for it to get my cashdrawer to work. If I can't figure it out I'll have to return.

Have you tried to change the printer settings to open the drawer after the receipt is printed? Try that.

I'm having problems installing it to Windows XP, with windows 7 it works like a charm but not XP. The strange thing is that when I print something it sends the information but it just doesn't print at all. Also, when I disconnect it the printer folder doesn't acknowledge it is not connected.

Hoping you still looking into this, I created a POS system, this is what I programmed to open the drawer from one button.
Make sure your drawer is the same 12VCD as the printer, or 24VDC. both must be the same.
Private Sub OpenDrawer()
Dim drawer As String = Chr(27) & "p" & Chr(1) & Chr(20) & Chr(20)

I have a lame question. I am not the most familiar with setting these up but how do I know if my cash drawer is 12vcd or 24vdc and how do I change it so they are the same?
The other thing is my system that we are using has up to 8 blank squares and you can put only 3 numbers in each square. Any ideas how Chr(27) & "p" & Chr(1) & Chr(20) & Chr(20) would translate to Decimal ASCII? That is what the system is looking to ask for. Thanks!

If your drawer sounds when sending those commands but it wont open, then you have a mistmatch there between the receipt printer and your drawer, one of them are 12 and the other 24.
The code that I have written, it is the ASCII code, so perhaps you want the hexadecimal? If so, then use this code: 0x1B ,0x70,0x00,0x40,0x50
