    How to change boud rate from 19200 to 9600

    Here are the complete steps to change your LX-300 bit rate to 9600.

    1) Load a paper with the friction lever up.

    2) Hold the FONT button and switch on the printer. The printer must sense the loaded paper and must start printing some stuff. If not it rolls and tries to load the paper. In such case insert the paper again and press PAUSE button. Now the printer will print the stuff i.e) the current printer settings.

    3) After the printing finishes (the print matter will be around 25% of a 11inch page length), press LF/FF. You will find the current settings. Check the current bit rate which is indicated in the 10th line of the current settings table.

    4) Now press LF/FF which takes you to the Table B.

    5) Now you are in table B and the lights 1, 2 and pause must be Blinking, Off, Off conditions respectively.

    6) Now press the FONT button 9 times. After pressing FONT nine times, Light 1 = Blinking : Light 2 : Blinking : Pause light : ON.
    This means that you are in Bit rate menu now.

    7) Press PAUSE button.

    8) Note down this order of bit rate and the status of 1, 2 and Pause lights.
    --300 = ON-OFF-OFF
    --600 = OFF-ON-OFF
    --1200 = ON-ON-OFF
    --2400 = OFF-OFF-ON
    --4800 = ON-OFF-ON
    --9600 = OFF-ON-ON
    --19200 = ON-ON-ON
    From the current bit rate you are in now, press the FONT button a particular number of times accordingly.
    Suppose you are in 1200 bit rate currently, the lights status will be ON-ON-OFF. If you want to set to 9600 you have to press FONT button 3 times and the lights status change to OFF-ON-ON , which indicates 9600 bit rate.

    9) Now, press PAUSE button so that the settings get saved.

    10) Switch off the printer and turn it back on after 20 seconds.

    11) Switch it off again, Hold the FONT button and switch it in again.

    12) After printing finishes, press LF/FF and check the bit rate in the current settings that is printed.

    You can have the user manual for your reference.

    Thats' it. You're done!

    Serial port settings Epson LX-300+

    Make sure you have at least 10 sheets of paper loaded.

    Turn the printer off for at least 5 seconds, hold down the Tear-Off button, turn it back on, then release the button when the language menu starts printing.

    After the language menu prints, verify the left and right Font light are off and the Pause light is on (for English). If not, press the LF/FF button until the lights are lit in this order. Press the Tear-Off button to select English.

    Once the current settings print, press the Tear-Off button to enter setup. Follow the directions to change the serial port settings.

    Okifax 5750 baud rate

    Try the following with the machine in standby mode. (no document fed)
    Press MENU/EXIT key ONCE.
    LCD display should indicate "Technical Prg."
    Press DOWN ARROW key ONCE
    LCD -display should indicate "2 Setup"
    Press RIGHT ARROW key ONCE
    LCD display should indicate "Setup"
    Press the DOWN ARROW key TWELVE times.
    LCD display should indicate "13>H/Modem Rate"
    Press the RIGHT ARROW key ONCE.
    Press the DOWN ARROW key repeatedly to change the setting to 4.8, 9.6, 14.4, 28.8 or 33.6K.
    For "9400" set it to "9.6" (9.6K = 9600 Baud)

    Also note that for this to fix your problems I would expect to find your machine is currently set to 14.4 or higher.
    Change it and see how it works for you. If it is no good, you can always change it back to the original setting.

    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.
