I need the printer codes for the Workforce 500

I am modifying a 1980's DOS program to print on an Epson Workforce 500- I need the printer codes to complete my task - Any help? I'm sure it's in the developers manual, but Epson wont provide them to me - probably afraid of failure and liability.

    Thanks for the spec.s. I already had them.

    I know that Epson says DOS is not supported for the Workforce 500. Nevertheless, if I can get the printer codes I can modify my DOS program and fool the Epson drive. Does anyone have the printer codes.

Check for the compatibility of the paper you're using by visiting and selecting your region. Also, I might add that make sure paper is properly loaded.
