Hi, to perform a self-test on an Epson LX300 > start with the power switch off. Press LF/FF (middle switch), without releasing that button, power on the printer. If everything is ok it will print a sel-test page. To do a Hex Dump > start at power off, simultaneously press Font and the LF/FF buttons (left & middle buttons), then power on; to revert the printer to its factory default setting(s) > start in off position, press Font (left) button then power on. (Slightly different with an LX300+) Hope this works out for you. Cheers.

My panasonic dot matrix printer kx-p 1150,slides the printhead all the way over to the left hand side and stays there as if it is jammed,making a terrible noise while it is there!help!


So many things can go wrong, from a defective sensor, so the logic does not know where the head is, to a defect on the logic board or bad cabeling.
It is ompossible to say what is wrong, without seeing the printer and being able to measure some things.
Sorry, but I don't think you can solve this with any software. It needs a tech, with some knowledge of the old school printers.

Stop print for sometimes


Dot matrix printer stops printing if the printer head is so hot already. The solution to this problem just let it be cool by itself. It is automatically stop but when it printer head becomes a little cold, then printing continues again. Good luck!

Starts to print but then the print mechanism gets "stuck" on the right-side. doesn't make any diff if there is a print ribbon in the printer or not.


Please give is some more information. For example is this an impact dot matrix printer or an ink jet?

Since you are using the term, "Ribbon," I'm going to guess at Impact printer.

Most current impact printers are bi-directional print mechanisms. This allows the print head to apply dots to the image in both directions.

Since you are saying the the print head jams at the right side there are several things that can be wrong. First, the printhead stepper motor may be driving the printhead beyond it furthermost right stop position and binding the head. The print head carrier stop may be bent or out of position allowing the carie to lock on the stop.

Second, the stepper motor may not have enough torque to bring the head back and will need to be replaced.

If I were trouble shooting this, I would first get the printhead over to the left edge, then power off the printer and see if I manually move the print head carrier left and right can I feel a mechanical bind in the carrier movement.

If not I would then check and see if any belts are loose. If there are no loose belt and no bind, I would consider replacing the stepper motor.

It wopuld reall help if you told us what printer model and manfactuer you have so the printhead drive system can be studied.

Cross printing


I'm not sure exactly what your issue is, but Epson printers should be well supported as far as drivers are concerned. Do you have the correct driver loaded? If you are trying to use a Tally driver with the Epson printer, this may not work right.

Also, when printing from Windows, some older printers print only in a single direction, from left to right, instead of bi-directional (left to right & right to left).

I've used a few different Epson dot matrix printers, and problems have been few.

NON STOP OF HEAD


Turn the printer off. Hold down the load/eject,LL/FF, and Pause buttons while you turn the printer on. This will restore the default setting for your printer.

Epson LX-300+ Dot Matrix Printer Big Problem


If you mixed up where the sensors plug into the board then the printer will not be able to sense where the carriage is. Make sure the sensors are all plugged into there proper jacks.
