These instructions are intended for Bluetooth enabled printers by Star Micronics, specifically the SM series.
If your printer doesn't match the specifications above, the Bluetooth selection process may be different.
Please consult your hardware manufacturers manual for detailed instructions on switching your Bluetooth mode for Androids.
Android Bluetooth Mode
Some Star Micronics printers have a mode called Bluetooth (iAP). This mode is intended for Apple/iOS devices only and won't work properly with Android devices.
Even if the device appears to be pairing with the printer in the bluetooth settings area.
To fix this you must go into the printers settings and change the Bluetooth Mode from Bluetooth (iAP) to Bluetooth Mode or Bluetooth.
|It may be called something slightly different depending on your printer model, just make sure to switch to Bluetooth without the iAP suffix.|
To enter the Printer Settings hold down both the Power Button and Feed Button simultaneously for roughly 5 seconds. You should see the printer enter settings mode (LED will flash). After 5 seconds have passed let go of the buttons. You have now entered the Printer Settings configuration area.
Follow the instructions to pair your device to the OperationsCommander Android application.
Once done, perform a test to ensure you can print from your Android device.
