In the past few weeks I have "fried" 5 Epson LX-300+ printers. During lightning storms the printer has had something happen to it where it no longer receives data through the paralell port. The printer will print a test page and can update all status features but will not print anything that is sent to it. I can't afford to keep purchasing a new printer every time a storm knocks one out, any suggestions at what can be causing this or a solution?

Yes it would appear your printer have been damaged due to the storm. The reason your fax is "off hook" the that the photocoupler that protects the printer from surges on the telephoone line has "blown". THe printing problem is due the the surge that damaged your computer also passed down the USB cable to the Printer and has "fried" that part of the circuitry It maybe possible to repair it but you will need to take it to a Samsung Repair centre or Authorised Repair centre
Make sure you installed correct printer driver and choose the correct model .and remove the pending print job if it is there. To clear all pending job In run window type services.msc and the go to print spooler option just stop and restart the service. And switch off and switch on the printer. Have a nice day and do not forget to rate please...!
hi there, you do have a ribbon cable problem, the white strip wire which is connected to the head of the printer. repalce the ribbon head cable and add some cleaning and lubrication on your printer machine. ty
