    I have the same problem. I did not get any warning of it during my printing. It was printing fine then pages came out with what looks like barcode across the page. The toner has been replaced. I am thinking it could be the photoconductor. Is that possible?

    My printer was printing fine on Thursday, Monday I come in and it is printing garbage, I changed the toner, thinking that would solve the problem, but so far, no success.

I have the same problem. I have replaced both toner and photoconductor, did not solve the problem. I have been using XP for some time before my printer started acting up.

    I'm having the same problem. On my old Windows 98 computer, the NEC 870 prints text OK, but all of the graphics have the bar code look. I hooked the printer up to my newer (still several years old) Windows XP machine, and from their everything prints bar code look, graphics and text. Entire test page. I uninstalled and reinstalled the printer on both machines; made no difference.

Epson TMU-295 prints in condensed mode with Windows 7 from web application while the same printer prints the same output in normal mode with Windows XP. How comes?


window is not the faulty one if you are using a third party software of sent print option from internet then problem must be with in drivers..... print a self test page if ok then print test page from system (control Panel) if both point ok then there must be problem in online software/ERP.

I loaded the windows update driver and connected my PSC 2115 all in one printer. It prints text documents and the test page without any issues. It displays images in print prieview but won't print them.


You need to get the manual for this printer, it has a printing language all it's own. The encoded text tells it where to put the bar code on the label, how to encode it, what text to put under it, etc. It's looking for a specially designed print file that's plain text. There may be a way to turn that off and turn it into a bitmap printer, but you would need the manual for that.

The printer can not print any paper


First of all we need to check weather it's a hard ware problem or software so try to copy something or press a self test page by pressing the x button and the colour copy button together if that prints fine then it means that its a software issue now click on the start button go to control panel then open printers right click on printers and go to properties print test page from there if it prints a blank page then go to the advance tab of properties and go to print processor then select "winprint" and in next line select RAW now try to print
if still the same then check the operating system if its windows Xp then it should be service pack 1 and above if you do not have service pack download the windows xp service and install it now try to print if still the problem persist then please post the exact model number of the printer and the operating system on your computer

IBM 6400 Dot Matrix Printer - Need Drivers for Windows XP


Try running couple of these test, to see if it might be another issue.
It should be printing these test at 1500 Line Per Minute... ?
1500LPM is at 10CPI if you have (Font size: 6, 8, 12, 14) it will make a difference.
Change your driver to Generic/Text, rerun your report... any difference?

Printing Problem in Windows XP


Does it seem to print the Windows test page faster than the self test print? If so it is probably printing the self test in a higher resolution than the Win test print (Win test prints are usually printed in low res)

Try printing a simple graphic or document from a piece of software. First in DRAFT mode and then in the HIGHEST Quality setting. See if you notice the "jerky" sensation in the DRAFT mode.

It could be normal for you printer.

An extra cut about 1 inch after the invoice is printed


Go into printer friendly setup, then select the receipt printer and choose the option 'Cut at this station'. Make sure it is unchecked. Your problem solved ;)

Vista problems with NEC SuperScript 870


If you load the printer drivers from a Windows XP install disk (in the i386 directory), that worked for me.
