Recipt printer not printing

We switched a license from multi store to stand alone.  I uninstalled and reinstalled but now the receipt printer will not print a receipt.  I can print a test page from inside POS and also from windows.  Preview will not work also 


Hello there, mike,

The possible reason you’re unable to print the receipt is that the receipt printer driver is not installed.

Let me walk you through on how to install your receipt printer driver.

Here’s how:

  1. Download the Star TSP100 driver, this works with Windows 10, 8.1/8, 7, and Vista for both 32-bit and 62-bit types.
  2. If prompted, save the file to your desktop.
  3. Double click the file to open the Install Shield wizard.
  4. Follow the installation process:
    1. Click Next, select Typical Installation, and then click Next again.
    2. Click Finish.
  5. Ensure that your printer is turned on and has paper loaded.
  6. Plug the printer's USB cable into an available port on your computer. Windows installs the printer.
  7. The installation process is done when you see this message "Your device is ready to use".
  8. Open Point of Sale and go to File then Hardware Setup Wizard to setup your printer.

For reference please check this article: Install compatible hardware drivers for Point of Sale.

Please let me know how it works so I can extend my help. Wishing you all the best in business and in health. Have a great day!

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
