Windows 7 x64 & LQ-570+ ESC/P2 @EJL solution (should also work for other printers/OS, but not tested yet):

Try modifying .dpg file.

Print the windows test page.

There should be written the location and name of the file (Data file), so print the test page and look up the file path. It is located in the sam folder as dll (config file). In my case it is in "C:\Windows\system32\spool\DRIVERS\x64\3\".

(Sience I coulden't find x64 driver for LQ-570+ ESC/P2 I used LQ-590+ ESC/P2 Ver 2.0 driver. It's working ... )

Now, when you found .GPD file, (make backup copy just in case) you have to add your computer account to list of accounts that has full controll of file or you won't be able to save changes.

Delete only @EJLl 1284.4 and @EJL in line that looks like that:
*Cmd: "<0000001B01>@EJL 1284.4<0A>@EJL <0A1B>@<0D1B>t<011B>6<1B>R<001B>P<1B>(U<01000A>"

(If you delete anything else at that line it won't work ...)

Save file an enjoy printig :P

    windows 7 64-bit does not have driver for EPSON LQ-570+ ESC/P2 because that matrix printer it is simply too old and no loger supported by manufacturer - calling tech support in this case would be waste of time. As you can clearly see from my description, I used driver for another printer. Problem is not in cable since I get the same thing on cable and on print server. Because it's annoying to have two extra lines printed I modified that file and that's that.

    I am also having the same issue. "STSM" appears and I totally cannot remove it. Unlike the "@EJL" issue, I am unable to find "STSM" anywhere to be deleted.

Preprinted 4 part paper crunching up when being printed in epson lq680 printer


The printer is not meant to use multi-copy carbon invoices. The cause of your problem is the double-feed prevention pad below the paper pickup roller. When the first form is fed, the double feed prevention pad will stop multiple paper feeds. With multi-page carbons, the paper feed roller is trying to feed the form, and is pulling the top page of the form into the feed rollers while the double-feed prevention pad is stopping the bottom form from feeding and the top and bottom pages are sliding because of the carbon paper between the sheets. The only solution that I know of is to buy a printer with a tractor feed and pre-printed fan-fold forms with tractor feed strips on the sides of the forms.

Everytime I print there is un usual text that eppear in the upper left corner of my print out paper.. The error shows like this; @EJL 1284.4 @EJL

When a printer prints garbage, it usually indicates a faulty cable or a loose connection. Power OFF your printer and computer. Disconnect and reconnect the cable on the printer and computer. Once the cable has been reconnected, power the printer and computer back ON.
If you are still getting the error, take the cable and printer to another computer and it works fine, have your computer's port checked. If it still gives you garbage from another computer, have the printer taken in to be serviced.

Cant print continuosly in epson lq300+

Sounds as if the format is wrong. You must set the paper format in the PC wordprocessor or invoicing software to the same size as the actual paper size of the invoice.

Printer duplicate rows from the document

I dont even get working...
When I turn on the printer and put on-line this happens:

1. "hardware connected" alert sound ("tiru")
2. printer gets initialized.
3. "hardware disconnected" alert sound ("turi").
4. go to 1.

This stops when I turn off the printer.
