It’s a common problem, but a simple one! If you find your tag printer or receipt printer work fine, then stop working, but when you reboot the tags/receipts spit-out, it is a tell-tale sign that the printers are plugged-in to a power outlet that cannot handle them.
The v2.20 update for Peeps’ Software is live!
If you want to skip the boring parts below:
- Walk around your store with a pen and paper and make note of each computer and where its network cable plugs-in at.
- Make note of each network ‘box’ — e.g. you modem, router, and any little hubs/switches.
I wish someone could sit in my seat all day and see just how many calls The Computer Peeps get that seem to be issues with consignment software, tag printers, receipt printers, etc…only to find, it was a power-related issue.
The Computer Peeps monitor a variety of things for consignment store owners. There are plenty of ‘monitoring’ systems and software out there and you can pay a lot of money for said systems, but simply buying a monitoring service and trying to resell it as a ‘managed service provider’, isn’t the same as what The Computer Peeps do.
One of the most-common causes of issues with consignment software, is running it on an “unclean” system — e.g. one you’ve had for a few years, an off-the-shelf consumer system pre-bloated with marketing supplements, etc.
