Auto Tear off for Epson LX300+

When I use continuous paper with the push tractor, paper should advance the paper perforation to the tear-off position where I can easily tear off the printed page. When the printer receives data, it should automatically reverses the paper to the top-of-form position and starts printing only the data given for print and paper should stop at end of the print.

you have to get the exact page size of your continuous paper. then you go to start -> printer and faxis -> then go to file -> and server properties.then create one paper which is exact sixe of your paper. Then go to printer preferances and select that paper.

to switch on tear off refer manual.

Hope this can solve the problem.

Printer will not advance to tear after print

I can't give the exact solution for this printer, however, I use the Epson POS thermal printer and here was our solution. In Windows 7 go to Devices and Printers. Click on Printer Properties. Then see if you see a tab that says Document Settings. Under that setting click on Paper Source. You should now see several options; I have mine set on Document(Feed, No Cut). There are other options but we prefer to tear ours off. You can chose Document(Feed, Cut) and it should advance then cut the paper for you.

How to set half half size paper

Look for a latch on the right side tractor drive. This will unlock it so you can slide it sideways on its rail. Set it approximately where it should be, load the paper, then adjust it so you have a slight amount of tension across the paper. I think the rest is software.

Configuration of page length

Most of these older printers use a special key to enter setup...usually upon power-up. Have paper inserted, because that is where it prints it's configuration.
It will probably use some of the feature buttons to change the paper size and tear-off options. Sorry I can't help with a manual, but I hope this helps.

Printing on the same line after a few pages printed

I first oiled the bar once more and while the printer was off, moved the head across the bar forcefully several times until it felt the ease to move. I then typed a document with numbers 1 to 10 each number typed two lines below the other and tried printing this document several times. This worked perfectly and the printer is now in order.

Label not advancing to tear-off perforation

Try this to have the printer auto-sense the size of the labels:
1. Make sure that printer power is off.
2. Press and hold the feed button.
3. Turn printer power on.
4. When the status light blinks, release
the feed button.
5. The printer advances the media to
measure and verify the length of
individual labels or tags. The printer
then prints a status summary and
remains in diagnostic dump mode.
6. To begin normal operation, tap the
feed button. The printer prints "out of
DUMP" and advances a label.
