Unistall the printer using the Control Panel

Go to Epsom www.epson.co.uk/

Obtain the drivers for the printer and copy them to a location on your hard drive re-install the printer using the Add Printer in the Printers and Faxes area if XP finds the LX allow it to install.

Once it is installed do a Print Test page , if the print is correct you are on a roll if not go to Device Manager and ask it to update the driver
It will ask you if you have a better driver say yes and point it to the entry you made on your hard drive

Preprinted 4 part paper crunching up when being printed in epson lq680 printer


Mustafa:

The printer is not meant to use multi-copy carbon invoices. The cause of your problem is the double-feed prevention pad below the paper pickup roller. When the first form is fed, the double feed prevention pad will stop multiple paper feeds. With multi-page carbons, the paper feed roller is trying to feed the form, and is pulling the top page of the form into the feed rollers while the double-feed prevention pad is stopping the bottom form from feeding and the top and bottom pages are sliding because of the carbon paper between the sheets. The only solution that I know of is to buy a printer with a tractor feed and pre-printed fan-fold forms with tractor feed strips on the sides of the forms.

When I print tables, the lines come out crooked. Any idea what the problem could be?


do the print head alignment... to do this..first switch OFF the printer and then load paper, press the Pause button while switching ON the printer.. the printer will then print the instruction for you to align the print head. Just follow the instruction and select the best printed line.

If when you print text or line, and you notice there is some part missing, this show that you print head have broken pins. If this happen, you will have to replace the print head.

Speed of print


A printer is designed to print at a certain ppm (page per minute), so really there is only one way to speed it up. When you select the print option from the File menu, you can select properties and see if you can change the dpi (dots per inch) of the document. Your document will print faster but you will lose quality.

Sounds very much like you using a incorrect printer driver not the driver for LQ Dotmatrix. Uninstall and reinstall make sure you using correct LQ series driver and this is your default printer.

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.
