Epson LQ-2180 continuous printing problem

The default paper height is 12". If you want to change it to 11" you should refer to printer manual and follow the steps. Otherwise if you are using a software for printing. Ask your developer to give following command for setting paper height

Chr(27) + Chr(67) + Chr(0) + Chr(11)

I don't have the correct driver for Vista, using printer to print technical drawings

When the drivers are not available, you can install VMware virtual machine and be able to use windows xp and xp drivers to run your print jobs. The basic VMware is a free download and works well on my Vista machine.

Want to print draft mode in dot matrix printer in XP

Not all dot matrix printers will print in draft mode. When operating from DOS it was usually necessary to send an Esc(ape) code such as ESC @ in ASCII code. I don't think it can be done from Windows; in fact some windows programs will not even talk to a dot matrix printer. Some printers have one or two banks of DIP switches, but before changing them you need to read the manual to see what they do. There could be one which allows Draft MOde.

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.

Epson LQ-2180 continuous printing problem

An Emulation driver will fix everyones problem... Do this:

1. Click on "Start", then "Control Panel" and then "Printers and Faxes".
2. In the left hand column choose the option "Add Printer". The "Add Printer Wizard" comes up, click on "Next".
3. At the "Local or Network Printer" screen choose "Local" and remove the check from "Automatically Detect".
4. Click on "Next".
5. At the "Select Port" screen choose the appropriate port (usually LPT1: recommended printer port).
6. At the install printer software screen choose "Epson" under "Manufacturer" and LQ-1050 for the printer, then click "Next". If you wanted to install the Windows universal driver, choose "generic" under "Manufacturer" and choose "Text Only", then click "Next".
7. At the printer name screen choose "Next".
8. When asked if you would like the printer to be default make the appropriate selections and then click "Next".
9. Finally click on "Finish". You may need your Windows XP installation disk.
