Question about Epson DFX-8500 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Epson DFX 8500

When printing a large reconciliation file of 232 pages, the progress stops every time at 2.12MB of the 3.53MB document. The printer stops and retarts from the beginning again and again. Normally the report takes 3 hours but after 10 hours still not completed. Only started recently and there have been no software or hardware changes.

regards

    We have broken the file into three and it prints fine. The dilemma is that last month the report was 199 pages and it printed fine. Why is it now not printing? Is there a setting that causes this? Is it a memory issue? Spooler issue? Timeout issue? We can not seem to get to the bottom of this.

    Regards

The file maybe too big to process, try printing the file in different method, like separating the sequence, divide the prints into parts in this way spooling will be easier and it will be queued anyway and will print, just be mindful of pages and sequence

    of course you know that it depends on the file size you're trying to print and not on the number of pages.



    also you can try to print on different drivers like PCL5 or PCL6 if it does have a PS it would be better on spooling,



    memory has something to do with this virtually, you might want to increase the capacity soon



    cheers

Re dfx -9000


Please perform the following steps to ensure your printer is physically functioning.

1. Turn the printer off and disconnect the interface cable.
2. Load plain, single part tractor paper into the printer.
3. Press the LOAD/EJECT button while turning on the printer.

NOTE: The self test prints over several pages. After the first or second page has printed, press PAUSE and turn the printer off.

If this self test prints correctly, then the printer hardware is functioning correctly.

>Try printing from other applications.
>Check cables as they can cause communication errors.
>Re-install the driver.
