Epson LX-300+ ''please insert paper'' error on Windows 98 system

Hi to all. I'm an IT personnel. We have an Epson LX-300+. When I installed it in a Windows 98 system, an error always pop-up saying "please insert paper''. When I click OK the printer will then starts to print. The same error occurs everytime the user prints so it gets too annoying and very inconvenient for the user. I already have uninstalled and reinstall its driver. I even download it's driver from Epson. But the error is still there. I try to install the printer to a Windows XP system and it's OK. There's no ''please insert paper'' problem. I think it's because of the status monitor, i'm not sure but i think it's the culprit. Windows XP has build in driver for this printer and it has no build in status monitor just purely driver. But in Windows 98, we have to install it's driver because it's not supported and Epson Status monitor is also installed when installing it's driver. Can anyone help me how to fix this problem.....? Please....

    Yup i try that one and it help. Thank you so much "kg4aau" for helping. But the problem why the "please insert paper" error appears is because of the paper source settings in the driver. Again thanks for helping... God Bless You.

Try using an older driver from epson, sometimes you can luck up and find one that will work. try and find the prior model the one it replaced and see what happens. any of the 9x drivers should work try several just because one won't dosent mean another wont. hope this helps

Problems installing a printer


what is your operating system? If you have windows XP or Vista, you dont need to download anything from Epson. Just go to your start menu and look for control panel. In control panel, open "printers and faxes" or "printers and other hardware" then "printers and faxes". Once you are in "printers and faxes" click Add Printer...
An "add printer wizard" will appear in a new window, click next...
On the next screen, choose local printer. And make sure that the option "Automatically detect and install..." is selected. It will start searching... If the wizard did not find the printer, it will come up with a list of manufacturers... From this list choose EPSON and a list on the right side will show you the model names. Look for the LX-300 on the list, it should be there! Install it and you're done... The driver is already included in the windows operating system. You dont need the disc if you have Windows Xp or Vista....
