    Vintage iButton Bling

    Back in 2010 I was doing quite a bit of experimentation with 1-wire devices and networks, see thread here: https://picaxeforum.co.uk/threads/one-wire-devices-networks.15306/ I bought some devices from Chine ( via the *bay) and on receipt found that they did not have the standard “device type” as...

    Parallel printing with a 20m2 picaxe

    Now looking at the parallel comms timing diagram in the manual there is a busy period that does not have a specified duration. that could take some finite time to print the characters on a row and automatically advance to the next line. So to jump ahead and modify Alan's code: #picaxe 20m2...

Here is a link to a Rev J from 2003 although at a glance now significant changes: 1000 SERIES PORT.PTR USER MAN. - Oatley Electronics (yumpu.com) Now at a PC and can see the manuals - no need for any guessing, it is all...

    picaxe to lcd displays

    Looking in the forum help: Help | PICAXE Forum "You may attach up to 5 images, max size 1024k each. Supported types are jpg and png." One way to reduce the file size is to use MSPaint - available with MS Windows. As a guide, if your file is say 2 MB then you need to halve the file size. In...

    Parallel printing with a 20m2 picaxe

    Alan is highly likely on the “right track” as to the problem. Try printing “aA” you may have to repeat that lower and upper case character pair 20 times Do both characters print as “aa”? If so then the data line 5 is held high - through open circuit, wrong connection or fault.

    Parallel printing with a 20m2 picaxe

    Looking for a Citizen manual online, closest I found was Citizen IDP-560RS for a 40 character/column wide dot matrix printer which is a serial comma version. The manual at page 18 has the same control codes as folks have already mentioned: 10 for line feed 12 for form feed 13 for carriage return.

    picaxe to lcd displays

    Peter, You mention a statement from back in 2008. However the manual part 3 was updated in 2010 and that error corrected. as IWP has indicated, I suggest you stay with one thread. Rather then keep starting a new thread on the same topic over and over. To that end, I will consider to merge some...

    RevEd once sold the FRM015 serial to parallel printer interface chip; https://picaxe.com/docs/frm015.pdf The instruction/data sheet may have some useful information.

    Parallel printing with a 20m2 picaxe

    If you advise the make and model of the printer that may help folks provide an answer with more information. whether serial or parallel interface, those older printers used in-line control codes. Data for printing was accumulated in a buffer until either: 1. The buffer was full, or 2. A print...

    How drive LCD with I2C?

    As lbenson suggests/asks did you not obtain a suitable answer to you own thread? Here you are making a statement without a specific question to a 12 year old thread. If you were expecting input/response from those who had posted here then I suggest that is unlikely - a check shows most have...
