Question about Epson LX-300 Matrix Printer

Epson LX-300+II not printing in draft 10 cpi using visual studio .net

I was having trouble of printing crystal report of visual studio 2008 in epson lx-300+II.

This is the first time I printed in a dot matrix and I cannot determine where the problem is from ( from the printer or the vs2008)

I already set the font to "draft" but as it loads to the printer it changes to another font. I tried to print in notepad and it prints right "draft".

    The list of fonts wont allow courier but allows courier new though its a different font again.

    .Net has surely neglected the non true type fonts and go for true types only.


    Now we tend to use escape keys to send data to printer.

You can download user's manual where it explains how to use your printer's control panel to change one of 6 inbuilt fonts.

I guess you can change fonts using control characters but I don't know if you can embad tham in a word doc. No way to test it because I don't have this printer.I remember having done it in early days of DOS word processing with Wordstar.

Hold ALT and type the command character - the numbers 27. In notebook will look like an arrow to the left, followed by writing a command character, examples:
? P Selects 10 cpi
? M Selecting the 12 CPI
? ? Select dense Print - 15 CPI (this character is typed by holding the ALT key figures 15)

your solution works fine with me, but the problem is i can't able to save the settings on the printer. so everytime i need to print on that given custom sized paper type, i need to manualy select it from advance tab on printer properties before i have a good print-out..

Epson LX-300+II, the font problem


have you check the white cable? (from the printer head to the
mainboard) .If the white cable is ok and you confirm that the 
printer head is fine, then the problem is at the mainboard.

most problems like this that i had encountered is at the transistor
at the mainboard. Try to check it out using a multitester.

Epson lx300+ii with serial port to fujitsu pc


use the com1, and use a baud rate like 9600, with 8 and 1 bit stop. dont. be sure that is in ESC/P or IBM as you requiered. if your software use directly the serial port, be sure that the bios set up is properly. i think that the lx300+ have less buffer than lx300+2
and if you use high speed, could loose info.
