Look for a latch on the right side tractor drive. This will unlock it so you can slide it sideways on its rail. Set it approximately where it should be, load the paper, then adjust it so you have a slight amount of tension across the paper. I think the rest is software.

Our printer is flashing Tractor1 tear. We are not able to print nor can we get this to quit flashing. I have tried turning it off and back on still having the same issue. Help?


The "Tractor 1 Tear" message is not a error as such, this is an information message showing the printer is set to the front tractor feed (tractor 1) if you press the button directly under "Tear" the printer should move the paper to the tear possition.

If the pritner is not printing I would recomend checking the following;

  1. Ensure the printer is set to "ONLINE" press the button you should see ONLINE TRACTOR 1 TEAR on the display
  2. Ensure the printer is loaded with paper, press the button under "Tear" the printer should move the paper forward if it is loaded into Tractor 1.
  3. If you are not using Tractor 1, ensure you select the paper path you are using within the menu and move the paper selection lever.
  4. Observer the LCD display for any errors that may be seen when print jobs are sent.
  5. Try printing a menu print on the printer this will identify if the printer will print, the menu can be printed in the following way.
    -Power the printer ON holding down the button, keep the setup button held down whilst the printer initializes.
    -When the printer has finished initializing ensure the printer is OFFLINE
    -Press and release the button to enter the MENU
    -Press the button under "MENU" on the LCD display
    -Press the button under "PRINT" on the LCD display

    The printer should print a menu settings page, if this prints OK the most likely causes for the problem are;

  1. The computer system is not sending jobs to the printer (check the correct printer is selected on the computer system)
  2. Connectivity problem (check cabling, IP Addresses etc)
  3. The wrong printer driver is being used

Hello sir, how to take print on A4 page? please help me


Hi The A4 paper size is an internationally used paper format. Although not often used in America, it is by far the most commonly and widely circulated paper size. At 8 1/4 inches by 11 3/4 inches, it is similar though not quite identical to the American standard U.S. letter size, which is 8 1/2 inches by 11 inches. Because of its ubiquity, all printers and programs have the ability to handle the size, and getting a printer to print to it is a matter of adjusting the settings.Put the A4 sized paper into the automatic feeder in the printer. You may have to adjust the tray guides to fit the paper in snugly. Close the tray firmly when finished.
  • Step 2.Set the printer to register the A4 sized paper inside the the tray. This varies from printer to printer but generally involves going into the print menu, scrolling to the automatic feeder and designating the tray as an A4 tray.Step 3.Select "File" and then "Page setup" in the program you are using.Step 4.lick on the drop down menumag-glass_10x10.gif next to paper size and choose "A4.Step 5.Select "File" and then "Print." Click the "Print Summary" button to ensure the file is set to print to the A4 size.
  • Step 6.Press "Print" to print the photograph.

    Paper won't feed


    Inside of the machine is dirty.
    If the inside of the machine is dirty, the printed paper may be smudged.
    Follow the steps described below to clean the inside of the machine.
    1. Ensure that the machine is turned on and there is no paper loaded in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
    2. Place A4/Letter-sized plain paper in landscape orientation, horizontally fold it in half.
    3. Unfold the paper, and load the paper in the Auto Sheet Feeder with the inverted-V edge down.

    4. Select <Bottom plate cleaning> from <Maintenance>.
    5. Select <Yes> on the Bottom plate cleaning confirmation screen and then press [OK].
    Paper will be ejected.
    If protrusions inside the machine are stained, wipe ink off the protrusions using a swab or such like.
    * Important
    Before cleaning, be sure to turn OFF the machine.
    Paper feed roller is dirty.
    Follow the steps described below to clean the paper feed rollers.
    1. Ensure that the machine is turned ON and there is no paper loaded in the machine.
    2. Select <Roller cleaning> from <Maintenance>.
    3. Select <Yes> on the Roller cleaning confirmation screen and then press [OK].
    The paper feed roller will rotate as it cleans.
    4. Repeat this operation twice.
    5. Load three or more sheets of A4/Letter-sized plain paper lengthways in the Auto Sheet Feeder.
    6. Select <Roller cleaning> from <Maintenance>.
    7. Select <Yes> on the Roller cleaning confirmation screen and then press [OK].
    The paper that is loaded in the machine will feed through the machine and be ejected.
    8. Repeat Steps 5 to 7 three times.
    Inappropriate paper type is used.
    Check to see if the paper you are printing on is too thick. See Paper Types You Cannot Use.
    Note that smudging may occur at the top and bottom edges of the paper when using Borderless Printing. Ensure that the paper you are using is compatible with Borderless Printing.
    Thick paper is used.
    When printing on thick paper, set the Paper Thickness Lever to the right.
    This widens the gap between the FINE Cartridge and the paper. Try this maneuver if the printed surface is scratched.
    Media is curled.
    If all four corners or the printing surface of the paper is curled, the paper may become dirty or may not feed properly. Use the paper after correcting paper curl as follows.
    1. Place the printing surface face up (A), and cover it with a sheet of non-printing regular paper to avoid damaging the surface.
    2. Roll up the paper in the direction opposite to the paper curl as per the figure below.
    3. Check the printing paper to confirm if the paper curl is eliminated to within approximately 2 to 5mm / 0.08 to 0.2 in (B).
    It is recommended to print on curl-corrected paper one sheet at a time.
    The media type is not selected correctly in the printer driver.
    On the [Main] tab of the printer driver, ensure that the [Media Type] selected matches the paper loaded.

    In the [Print] dialog box of the printer driver, select [Quality & Media] from the pop-up menu, and then ensure that the [Media Type] selected matches the paper loaded.
    Paper is loaded incorrectly.
    Load in the portrait orientation regardless of the print direction of the Auto Sheet Feeder.
    Ensure that paper is loaded correctly. Slide the paper guides against the paper stack.

    Paper size..


    In WIN98 with WordPerfect9 we had set up dot matrix printer Epson LQ1050 on which to print 8.5" wide by 5.5" long (half page) multipart invoices. In XP apparently MSFT changed this and there is no custom paper size in windows printers. Instead one must use the program's (Word Perfect) page setup where the page size can be entered. Problem is the Epson drivers have not been rewritten to incorporate this change. The optional paper sizes are builtin to the printer drivers. Some folks with the same situation as you have had success using the Forms menu in MS Fax to set different paper sizes. Third party programs such as FinePrint (www.fineprint.com) can also help with this. I hope you work it out ;]
