    We use the LX300, LX300+ and LX300+ II printers with some of the equipment we sell and service. I thought I had seen every problem on these models until I had a unit printing double on the NLQ fonts.



    Doing a test print, the characters look fine for the first couple of lines, then the letters start slurring. It appears the two passes required for the NLQ fonts are not aligned -- the alignment gets gradually worse and worse with each line printed.



    I have cleaned and lubricated the guide rod the print head travels on, which is usually an issue with the units we see, but the issue remains. I'm guessing the issue is either with the main board, the motor that rolls the platten or the motor that moves the head.



    I have a spare chassis with working motors I will try first. Unfortunately, I do not have any spare main boards.

I tried replacing the motors and the issue persisted, so I have to assume it was a board issue. Switching the printing to unidirectional as suggested by Albert124 took care of issue for us, as we were not concerned about printing speed, since our equipment runs at 300 baud.

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.

Epson LX-300+II, the font problem


have you check the white cable? (from the printer head to the
mainboard) .If the white cable is ok and you confirm that the 
printer head is fine, then the problem is at the mainboard.

most problems like this that i had encountered is at the transistor
at the mainboard. Try to check it out using a multitester.

Horzontally double printing & characters are not clers.


Is the ribbon tight or sticking, If ribbon can't turn, it delays entire carriage, you will notice that if you move carriage up and down by hand ribbon turns, I have seen sticky ribbon s cause problems as well as gearing that drives ribbon with wornout gears

If self test fails then all faults /i can think of on these is

  • Dry rail/dirty bearing
  • incorrectly manufactured ribbon
  • Damaged dot head
  • broken/breaking ribbon interface carriage cable
  • worn ribbon drive gears
  • worn/dirty ribbon drive rail
  • main board
