NewDeal Technical Support Document 242
Even if your printer doesn't appear on NewDeal's list of printers, you may still be able to use it with our software. Only the printers on the list in Preferences/Printer have been tested in our compatibility lab. If your printer is not listed, you may be able to use the information in this document to make your printer work with NewDeal, but we cannot guarantee success.
An example of this is the Star NX-2420 color printer, which emulates the Epson LQ860 printer. If you have a Star NX-2420 printer, and you select the Epson LQ860 Color in your NewDeal software, your Star printer will print just fine.
You may need to set a few switches on the printer itself to make the printer's emulation work. Some printers do not have physical switches, but come with a software that is used to set the printer's emulation mode.
If there are no emulations listed in your printer manual, visit the manufacturer's web site, or call your dealer or the printer manufacturer and ask them if they can suggest an alternative driver that will work with the printer. As a last resort, see our support document 214 (General Printing Help) for a list of commonly emulated printers, or look to see if there is information about your printer in document 272 (Specific Printer Notes).
If you are certain you have everything configured correctly, but your printouts don't look exactly right, your printer's emulation may not be 100% perfect. Try selecting Medium Quality mode when you print. Also, run Preferences, Computer and set your LPT port to BIOS or DOS instead of 7.
