In the printer setting, you can add a printer by pressing the ‘+’ key, customize a name of the printer, select ‘other model’ in the ‘printer model’, ‘Bluetooth’ in the ‘interface’, search and select the Bluetooth of the innerprinter, select the 58mm in paper width. After setting the parameter, save and finish. This is the tutorial video: http://bit.ly/30Ois2E
(2) Q: Is it possible to print from browser, image in gallery and document like PDF?
A: Yes, but you need to download the printer plugin service to get supported.
For model IPDA032 and IPDA049, you can download the ‘Sunmiprinterplugin’ on the App store(The application with orange icon that comes with the device) to print. You can refer this video about printing on Gmail: http://bit.ly/2HtYZwE
*Now, our most IPDA032 and IPDA049 has pre-installed the plugin before the shipment.
For model IPDA045, there is no official plugin to support, but you can download and use the ‘ESC POS Bluetooth Print Service’ on Google Play.
(3) Q: Can I connect the printer with other devices?
A: No, the innerprinter has been connected inside on hardware, and the Bluetooth is virtual. So it is only able to connect with the device itself and doesn’t support to connect with other devices.
(4) Q: The printing result is not very clear, how to make it clearer?
A: First make sure the receipt you are printing is in 58mm size that fits our printer so it will not cause the font reduction. There are 3 ways to help making the result clearer.
① Set the print density to larger value in Setting.
IPDA032/049: Setting ---> innerprinter ---> print density.
IPDA045: Setting ---> printing ---> print density.
② Clean the printer head and the roller with cloth and alcohol. Because after a period of use, the stains on the printer with make the printing not as good as previous.
③ The printing print quality is also related to the paper you are using, you can load up with new paper in good quality to make sure the printing could be clearly printed.
