This is a feature provided by the manufacture to protect the print head overheat for small dot matrix printers. Here giving printer head connection diagram, the last two row have temperature sensing (thermister) connection pin 1 to 1. If the thermister is faulty in the print head the printer will auto pause abnormally. Check the printer with compatible / EPSON recommended print head. These kind of small printer only for POS printing not for continues printing. 2_17_2012_8_31_04_am.jpg

You need to reset the board, all dot matrix have some kind of a chip set as well that mostly can be remove. Just make sure you are grounded, its a last resort that I normally do for dot matrix that can't seems to stop printing or the panel are always lights on.

to print, the print properties dialog does not show the paper size. In fact,
there are many paper sizes in the print manager that do not show up in the

How do I get the macaddress of the Epson LQ-300+II?


If the dot matrix printer does not have a built-in network card then it will not have a MAC address. Dot matrix printers are very old printers and I have not come accros any with built-in network card or print servers.
The dot matrix can be connected to a network print server and this will have a MAC address and a configurable IP address.

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.
