ERROR indicator is blinking red
This is caused when there is no paper present in the printer. Open the printer, replace the paper, and close the lid. The ERROR indicator should stop blinking and the READY indicator should light up.
If you feed the paper into the receipt printer at an angle, then a paper jam is likely to happen. If this happens, then turn off the printer, open it up, and feed the paper in again.
If you're trying to make your receipt narrower than the specified 3 inch width, then make sure that you use the divider provided. Don't fold the paper when you feed it into the printer.
You can customize both the basic receipt layout and the transaction description.
