If the data stream keeps coming to the printer with some reasonable pacing, no gratuitous paper feed is done. Unscientific tests show that range is good; 5 meters has been actually tested, but it is probably a bit more. Zebra Infrared Mobile Printers.

I have converted the found glyph images into my personal format and have implemented the rendering engine for the HPB data stream. It would be quite a mess if there was a paper feed between each horizontal line!
More so than bad flex cables. FWIW, the font header is defined as: In impatience to receive my printer module, I went back to eBay and looked to see if a similar module is available from domestic shipping, which should take less time. I am working on implementing the rasterizer of the HP printer data, which will create a bitmap image representing one line of output.
Well, on a little-endian machine, but come on, little-endian is the one true way.

82240b the problems I had with it were:. I seem to remember that the controller was a Mostek MK The Kashino claims that you hold down the Paper Feed button while powering on, and a test print will spew out. If the inputs to the driver are all toggling, then the driver chip might be defective. They both print correctly with some caveats:.

I haven’t done this yet, so no picture, but this one is trivial since the 5V pin is clearly marked on the board. The TEXT state checks for a couple special characters, and otherwise does a character blit of the incoming character.
I have no way of verifying it at this time, but the rasterizer program emits comments showing the image form of the bit pattern, so it seems to be good. The complete character set and the battery condition are printed battery condition is printed in a separated line.
As you can see in those two printouts, the output is rather faint. Here’s a couple examples:. Hl that to 0 at boot, btw. Then when the mailman came, a miracle: The printer requires more power than USB can supply, necessitating an external supply e. So I covered that scenario with a little hack.
On this part, the page size is 1 KiB. OK, subtle detail on the timer rollover: This morning I awoke to discover that I had turned into a giant cockroach. I don’t know why the highlight is there — it’s that way in the PDF itself with 8224b things.
The signature looks like ‘FONT’ in a hex editor. There was, and not for not much more cost.
One of the 8 bit ports drives the printhead There’s an 8-section driver chip, something like a ULN I am doing this from memory, I don’t have my schematic in front of me You can see the effect in the top right printout, where there is noticeable space between the lower printed ‘lines’.
If that happened, I’d suspect that some other problem caused it, so would be concerned that the same thing might happen to a replacement printhead. How about the printer’s self-test?

I implemented two physical printer rasterizers for two of the sample printer cores: Back to work coding printer rasterizers The rest 8220b the system then proceeds to use whatever is in the RAM-based copy.
