Question about Epson LX-300 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Printer will not print after lightning storm

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?

    The printer is not connected to a computer, it's connected to a monitoring system. Tried restarting the system but it didn't work. When I plug a new printer into the system it works just fine

    Will the parallel port work if you connect it to a computer?



    Try printing the default settings to see if the parameters are still the same

Check all connections and make sure all devices are on. If the power was turned off during printing, cancel the print job. If the error does not clear, see your printer documentation.

Won't print (surge?) after storm; fax off the hook


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

Sorry for the bad news but hope it helped

Printer will not turn on


the UPS is unplugged from the power outlet but it is still connected to the modem

it is a lightning storm - and computer equipments & peripherals can only withstand very little amount of electricity

check your warranty status (warranty starts from the date of purchase) then call the vendor
