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.

Friends
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.

We had a power failure and now our Lexmark 2391 dot matrix printer will not print from the top of the page. i need to know how to setup/reconfigure the top of the page? thank you


  1. Push the ALT button and then the PARK LOAD button to back the paper out.
  2. Push the PARK LOAD button to reload the paper. The Ready light should now be blinking.
  3. Use the MICRO up or down buttons to adjust as needed, making sure that the top of form is set on the very first page that enters the printer. Typically, the top edge of the first sheet of paper should be even with the ribbon.
  4. When the page is lined up properly, press the START/STOP button. The printer will record the current position as the top of form and then feed paper to the tear off position.
  5. Use the MICRO up and down buttons to place the top of the paper at the tear off bar.
  6. After the tear off is positioned properly, press the START/STOP button twice to save the tear off position.
  7. Test the positions with a sample print job. If the alignment is still off, follow this entire procedure from the beginning again as needed.

HOW DO I MAKE THE PAGE ADVANCE AUTOMATICALLY TO THE POSITION I NEED IT TO BE TO TEAR OFF ?


Setting Top of Form, Forms Tear-Off ON

(Step A)

! If you turn the platen knob when the printer is turned

on, you will cause the Top of Form to mis-align. Always

turn the printer off before turning the platen knob!




1 Turn the printer ON.

2 Park the paper.

3 With paper out of the unit, (red alarm light should be on)

press SHIFT (1) and QUIET/TOF (5) to reset the current

Top of Form.

4 Press FF/LOAD (3) to load the paper.

5 Press SEL/MENU (6) to take the printer off line.

The SEL light goes out.

6 Wait until the paper moves up to the tear position, then

press and hold TEAR (4).

The paper moves to the current Top of Form.

Keep pressing and holding TEAR.
7 Press and hold SHIFT and release TEAR.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

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.
