Question about Epson LQ 570+ Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Pause light blinking, machine beeping, no printing

The pause light is blinking, the machine is beeping; I have turned it off and held down the font and condensed buttons and turned the machine back on, that allowed me to print one label. There are lots of lables in the machine - I use this printer every day for mailing letters. Now we are back to square one. No printing at all, just beeping and blinking!

Probably needs a good cleaning - with a vaccuum and some compressed air.

Dot matrix (impact) printers usually have a couple of optical sensors - disks with holes in them - to let the printer know where the head is, how fast it's moving, if it jams, etc.

If there is too much dust, dirt, or bits of paper interfering with the beam of light passing through the rotating disks, most printers will stop and indicate some sort of error, rather than force the motor - which may damage the plastic teeth on the gears.

Wont start


First you have to find the error code.
So! To recall an error code,

Wake the machine by pressing any button

Wait 5 seconds
Press and hold the Start and Pause Cancel buttons simultaneously

Ail LEDs will go blank and after a few seconds the control will signal the stored code using audible beeps and blinking LEDs. The control will repeatedly signal the code, as long as the Start and Pause Cancel buttons are pressed.
A two-second pause between repeats affords you the ability to make accurate counts to identify the correct error codes.

As long as the buttons are held, the failure code will appear in the display as an E followed by two numbers, a number and a letter or two letters, please post back with the error code for further assistance.

How to change boud rate from 19200 to 9600


Here are the complete steps to change your LX-300 bit rate to 9600.

1) Load a paper with the friction lever up.

2) Hold the FONT button and switch on the printer. The printer must sense the loaded paper and must start printing some stuff. If not it rolls and tries to load the paper. In such case insert the paper again and press PAUSE button. Now the printer will print the stuff i.e) the current printer settings.

3) After the printing finishes (the print matter will be around 25% of a 11inch page length), press LF/FF. You will find the current settings. Check the current bit rate which is indicated in the 10th line of the current settings table.

4) Now press LF/FF which takes you to the Table B.

5) Now you are in table B and the lights 1, 2 and pause must be Blinking, Off, Off conditions respectively.

6) Now press the FONT button 9 times. After pressing FONT nine times, Light 1 = Blinking : Light 2 : Blinking : Pause light : ON.
This means that you are in Bit rate menu now.

7) Press PAUSE button.

8) Note down this order of bit rate and the status of 1, 2 and Pause lights.
--300 = ON-OFF-OFF
--600 = OFF-ON-OFF
--1200 = ON-ON-OFF
--2400 = OFF-OFF-ON
--4800 = ON-OFF-ON
--9600 = OFF-ON-ON
--19200 = ON-ON-ON
From the current bit rate you are in now, press the FONT button a particular number of times accordingly.
Suppose you are in 1200 bit rate currently, the lights status will be ON-ON-OFF. If you want to set to 9600 you have to press FONT button 3 times and the lights status change to OFF-ON-ON , which indicates 9600 bit rate.

9) Now, press PAUSE button so that the settings get saved.

10) Switch off the printer and turn it back on after 20 seconds.

11) Switch it off again, Hold the FONT button and switch it in again.

12) After printing finishes, press LF/FF and check the bit rate in the current settings that is printed.

You can have the user manual for your reference.
