Cross: Printing with STAR receipt printer

I am printing tickets with star tsp700 (743c) on the LPT1 with VB.NET
program (I olso use C#). I use OCX control of STAR company. If I turn off
printer or unplug cable, program for printing is blocked and it is ok (he
will not mark this ticket as printed because program is on hold). After
turning on the printer, program continue printing and at the end, he write
to DB that transaction.

Problem is when printer is on, but paper is out. Than printer gets data to
buffer, buffer is small and data is gone (First In First Out). When printer
is on and paper is out, my program recognize it like everithing is ok.
Program is not blocked, data is "sent to printer", transaction is written to
DB... How can I recognize paper out with Star POS printer component (OCX). I
am trying to use NearEnd and similar properties but I can not get info about
paper out. Does somebody know how to fix this problem? Thanks!
