Setting switches – NCR 7156 User Manual
Chapter 2: Setting Up and Using the Printer
7156 Setup and User’s Guide
A group of switches, called DIP switches, are used to set communication
parameters for the RS-232C communication interface. The switches are located
behind the front cover.
The DIP switches are used for other functions. See the “Diagnostics” chapter
in the Owner's Guide for more information.
The DIP switches are set at the factory to predetermined settings and
should generally not be changed. If you must change the settings do so carefully to
avoid changing other functions.
Before changing any of the switches, first run the print test to print out the current
switch settings on the receipt. See “Testing the Printer” earlier in this book for
instructions on running the print test and for a sample printout.
