TechTips: SBPL - Command Error

Printer feedback when detecting a command error:

When Show Error is set to ENABLE in Application mode, the command error information is shown on the error message (second line), and the print operation is paused.

This error can be cleared by pressing the LINE button, but the data in which an error was detected is discarded and cannot be printed.

Error Format - Caaa:<bb>:cc

Location of error occurrence

'Caaa' in the command error message shows the location of command error.

The number of ESC commands from ESC+A is shown in 'aaa'.

Note:The ESC+A command is not included in the number of ESC commands, which can be shown up to 999. If the number of ESC commands exceeds 999, it is shown as '999'.

Error command name

The command name, in which an error was detected, is shown in '<bb>'.

Error code

The cause of command error will be indicated in code in 'cc' where an error is being shown.

Code <cc>
