Question about Epson LQ-2180 Dot Matrix Printer

Open Question

I cannot print with epson lq-2180

Well the printer was working fine and after some time next day i got a message from my brother that the printer says i should specify the correct port to print to.
the computer is using win-98 and when i went to the printer properties i found out that the port was LPT1 and i tried all it was not working and when i tried after some time it told me that the printer had been put offline but still i could not even print a test page.
so after some time it was telling me that user intervation is needed.
i uninstalled the printer and installed it again and the same problem.
now it was telling me that i should put paper yet i had loaded paper in the printer and there were no problems of paper jam.
so when i try now to use another port it does work and tell me that i should lord the paper into the printer yet the printer has paper.
so i change the port to LPT0 and when it dint work i tried to put back LPT1 and now it tells me that it is an invalid port.
will be greatful to be helped.
thanks in advance

The default paper height is 12". If you want to change it to 11" you should refer to printer manual and follow the steps. Otherwise if you are using a software for printing. Ask your developer to give following command for setting paper height

Chr(27) + Chr(67) + Chr(0) + Chr(11)
