Re: problems with an epson lx 300+

1: replace the ribbon 2: check the large silver shaft the runs through the carriage. Make sure your fingers can glide easily across it. If not, use a little alcohol e.g. to clean it. If it still happens, us a LITTLE sewing machine oil on your finger and lightly lubricate the shaft. Not there, can't see the error. Let me know Ed

Print output

I had the same problem when printing on Windows XP Pro or Vista Business OS while the prinout was fine using DOS or Linux environment. My problem was that every other line the fonts wiggle sidewards towards the right as if it were on italics.

To correct this, simply download the LX300-II ESC/P driver then update your printer driver by re-installing it using your device manager.

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.

Printer not Print data in English Language

Hi, you may want to reset/restore the Epson LX300 to default settings. This can be done by pressing down on the FONT button while powering on the printer. If done right the LX300 will print a test page with the firmware version. It is also possible that the drivers are corrupted. In Start, Printers & Faxes, delete the LX300 printer, restart your PC and then re-install via Add Printer. In some cases, defective parallel cable can also cause problems. Unfortunately the only sure way of checking is by replacing the printer/parallel cable with a known good/operation cable. If the printer would really be requiring service, a Service Manual is available at ( Hope this be of some help to you. Good luck and pls post again how things turn up.
