Epson TM-L90 Plus Label Printing Issue On Clover POS
By: POSGuys Support - 9/21/2022

The Epson TM-L90 series printers come from the Epson factory with a setting enabled on the units, to conserve power, called the USB Power Save Mode. This power save setting on the USB port interferes with the Clover POS terminal from properly communicating with the printer. Once this setting is disabled on the printer itself, Clover POS should recognize the printer right away, and be able to print to it, via USB connection. To change the USB setting on the L90 printer, you will need to power off the printer, and hold down the FEED button while turning the printer back on. Once the self test ...

ZD410 & ZD411 Comparison - What's Changed? What's Stayed the Same?
By: Colton Redtfeldt - 8/4/2022

The ZD411 has been released as a replacement for the ZD410 and many of our customers are wondering what the difference between the two units is. The short answer? Not much. The primary difference between the ZD411 and ZD410 is that the ZD411 has a model that prints on thermal transfer labels. Previously, Zebra’s TLP 2824+ was the only 2-inch printer in their portfolio capable of thermal transfer printing. Zebra also replaced some internal components with ones that are easier to source. This was done in response to strained supply chains that made it difficult to build the ZD410. These replace...

They've already tried reaching out to the seller or the manufacturer and either received no response or very superficial support of little value. So then they call us as a last resort. Unfortunately, there is little we can do to help out in this scenario. These sorts of scanners often have speci...

A Radio-Equipped Barcode Scanner? - Datalogic PM9600 Product Review
By: Colton Redtfeldt - 5/10/2022

Are you looking for that extra bit of communication range in your barcode scanner? Are you looking for something you can program with special function commands? The new Datalogic PM9600 might be the scanner for you! Unlike most wireless barcode scanners on the market today, the PM9600 uses a radio frequency instead of Bluetooth to pair with it's communication cradle. Because it’s using radio, you’re going to be able to get pretty far away from the cradle without losing connection. The scanner's spec sheet quotes a range just below 500 feet with a direct line of sight - compare that to it’s c...
