EPSON Remote Configuration Manager
The EPSON Remote Configuration Manager lets you change the printers default settings, update the printer with the new settings, and save them in a configuration file which you can use any time. This is especially convenient in a multi-printer network environment; individual configuration files can be created for each printers specific application requirements. The program works on these printers: FX-880+ FX-880+ in Okidata mode FX-1180+ FX-890 FX-890 in Okidata mode FX-2190 FX-2190 in Okidata mode LQ-590 LQ-2090
Note: If you are using Windows 2000 and the printer is connected to the parallel port, Remote Configuration Manager may not work. In this case, do one of the following: Before running the program, set the printer driver to the LPT2 port. Then use Remote Configuration Manager to check or change the default settings as described in this book. After you finish using the program, remember to return the setting to LPT1. Connect the printer to the USB port instead.
Starting the Program
1. From the Start menu, select Programs (or All Programs), Epson Remote Configuration Mgr, and then click Epson Remote Configuration Manager. You see this window:
Select Create New Configuration and click OK. (If you want to make changes to a configuration file that was created earlier, see Using an Existing Configuration File on page 9.) You see the printer model window:
Turn the printer off, wait a moment, and turn it back on. Choose your printer from the list and click Select. If you are using your printer in Okidata mode, be sure to select the Oki version for your printer. You see the Remote Configuration Manager screen:

This chapter covers some important instructions you need to load and use paper in your printer. For complete paper handling information, see the Reference Guide.
Setting the Paper Release Lever
Before you start printing, be sure to set the paper release lever to indicate the paper source you want to use, as described in the table below.
Description Single-sheet position For loading single-sheet paper from the top or front slot. Rear push tractor position For loading continuous paper with the tractor installed in the rear push position or when using the rear push and pull tractors in combination. Front push tractor position For loading continuous paper with the tractor installed in the front push position or when using the front push and pull tractors in combination. Pull tractor position For loading continuous paper from the tractor installed on top of the printer in the pull position. You can load paper in the front, rear, or bottom slot.
Adjusting the Paper-Thickness Setting
Before you start printing, make sure the paper-thickness setting is correct for the type of paper you are using. Turn the printer off and open the printer cover. The paper-thickness lever is located on the left side of the printer. The numbers next to the lever indicate the thickness setting.
Select the correct setting according to this table:
Paper type Ordinary paper Thin paper Carbonless multipart forms with: 2 parts (original + 1 copy) 3 parts (original + 2 copies) 4 parts (original + 3 copies) 5 parts (original + 4 copies) 6 parts (original + 5 copies) 7 parts (original + 6 copies)* Continuous paper with labels Postcards Envelopes Lever position 0 or 1 (single sheets) 0 (continuous paper) or 6
* Available when using the tractor in the bottom or front pull position. Note: When the temperature is 41F (5C) or lower, or 95F (35C) or higher, set the paper-thickness lever one position lower to improve print quality. When the temperature is 41F (5C) or lower, or 95F (35C) or higher, multipart forms with 7 parts cannot be used.
Loading Continuous Paper with the Front Push Tractor
1. Make sure the printer is turned off. Then open the front cover and the flap. Make sure the tractor is installed in the front push position. (You may need to move it from the rear push or pull position.)
Set the paper release lever to the front push tractor position. Also set the paper-thickness lever to the proper position for your papers thickness. See Adjusting the Paper-Thickness Setting on page 18 for instructions. Release the left and right sprockets by pushing the blue lock levers backward.
Slide the left sprocket approximately 0.5 inch (12 mm) from the far left position and pull the blue lever forward to lock it in place. Then slide the right sprocket to match the width of your paper, but do not lock it.
Remove the front cover by pulling it straight down.
Make sure your paper has a clean, straight edge. Then open both sprocket covers and fit the first four holes of the paper, with printable side up, over the tractor pins. Close the sprocket covers. Slide the right sprocket to remove any slack in the paper; then lock it in place by pushing the sprocket lock down. Attach the front cover with the continuous paper positioned as shown.
7. 8. 9.
10. Make sure the paper guide is lying flat on the printer and slide the edge guides to the middle of the paper guide.
11. Turn on the printer. When the printer receives data, it automatically loads the paper and starts printing.
If the first line on your page appears too high or low, you can change its position using the Micro Adjust function as described on page 32.
c Caution: the knob to adjust the top-of-form position; this may damage the Never use
printer or cause it to lose the top-of-form position.
Loading Continuous Paper with the Rear Push Tractor
1. Make sure the printer is turned off, the tractor is installed in the rear push position, and the paper guide is removed. (You may need to move the tractor from the front push or pull position.) Set the paper release lever to the rear push tractor position. Release the left and right sprockets by pulling the blue sprocket lock levers forward.
Slide the left sprocket approximately 0.5 inch (12 mm) from the far left position and push the blue lever back to lock it in place. Then slide the right sprocket to match the width of your paper, but do not lock it.
The triangle mark on top of the printer indicates the point furthest to the left where printing can begin.
Using the Micro Adjust Function
The Micro Adjust function allows you to move the paper forward or backward in 1/216-inch (0.118 mm) increments to adjust the tear-off and top-of-form positions.
Adjusting the tear-off position
If your papers perforation is not aligned with the tear-off edge, you can use the Micro Adjust function to move the perforation to the tear-off position, as described below. Your tear-off position setting remains in effect until you change it, even if you turn off the printer.
c Caution: the knob to adjust the tear-off position; this may damage the Never use
printer or cause it to lose the tear-off position. 1. You may need to press the Tear Off/Bin button to advance the paper to the tear-off position. Make sure the Tear Off/Bin light is flashing (the paper is at the current tear-off position). Hold down the Pause button for about three seconds. The Pause light begins flashing and the printer enters the Micro Adjust mode.
Open the paper guide cover, then press the LF/FF D button to feed paper backward, or press the Load/Eject U button to feed paper forward, until the paper perforation is aligned with the tear-off edge of the printer cover.
Tear-off edge of the printer cover
Note: The printer has a minimum and a maximum tear-off position. If you try to adjust the tear-off position beyond these limits, the printer beeps and stops moving the paper. 4. 5. Tear off the printed pages. Press the Pause button to turn off Micro Adjust mode.
When you resume printing, the printer automatically feeds the paper back to the top-of-form position and begins printing.
Adjusting the top-of-form position
The top-of-form position is the position on the page where the printer starts printing. If your printing appears too high or low on the page, you can use the Micro Adjust function to adjust the top-of-form position, as described below. Your top-of-form position setting remains in effect until you change it, even if you turn off the printer.
Make sure the printer is turned on. Load paper. (If the tractor is in a push position, press the Load/Eject button to advance continuous paper to the current top-of-form position.) If necessary, lift up the printer cover so you can see the paper position. Hold down the Pause button for three seconds. The Pause light flashes and the printer enters the Micro Adjust mode. Press the LF/FF D button to move the top-of-form position up on the page, or press the Load/Eject U button to move the top-of-form position down on the page.
Press the Pause button to exit the Micro Adjust mode. Note: The printer has a minimum and a maximum top-of-form position. If you try to adjust it beyond these limits, the printer beeps and stops moving the paper. When the paper reaches the default top-of-form position, the printer beeps and stops moving the paper briefly. You can use this setting as a reference point when adjusting the position. The top margin setting made in some software overrides the top-of-form position setting you make with the Micro Adjust function.
Using the Control Panel
This chapter describes the buttons and lights on the control panel, plus: Selecting a font and pitch Changing the printers default settings Emulating the Okidata Microline 320/321 Turbo printer
Buttons and Lights
Button/Light 1 Font (ItemD) button Font lights 2 Reset (Font and Pitch) buttons Pitch (ItemU) button

Changing the Printers Default Settings
While you can often change the printers settings through your software or printer driver, you may sometimes need to change one or more of the printers default settings. There are two ways to do this: Using the EPSON Remote Configuration Manager on the printer software CD-ROM. (See page 15.) From the printers control panel using the default-setting mode.
For instructions on using the Remote Configuration Manager, see the PDF manual on the CD-ROM. To use the control panel, see below. For detailed information about default settings, see the Reference Guide. The following table shows the options available for each printer setting.

Follow the steps below to enter the default-setting mode. If you use single sheets, you need to load a new sheet of paper each time the printer ejects a printed page. 1. Make sure the printer is on and paper is loaded. Then press the
Menu buttons (ItemU and Set) until the printer beeps and both the
Tear Off/Bin lights turn on. The printer enters default-setting mode and prints a line showing which language is currently selected for printing the instructions. The selected language is underlined. 2. 3. 4. If you want a different language, press the ItemD button until the printout shows the language you want underlined. Press the Set button to accept the language. The printer prints a line asking if you want to print all the current settings. To print a list of all the current settings, press the Set button. The printer prints all the settings and then the first setting again. Go to step 5. To go through the settings one at a time, press the ItemD or ItemU button. The printer prints the first setting and its current value. 5. Press the Set button to scroll through the options for the selected setting until you see the one you want. Press the ItemD or ItemU button to select the next or previous setting you want to change. 6. 7. Repeat step 5 for any other settings you want to change. When you finish, press the Menu buttons again to exit default-setting mode.
c Caution: on the left side of the printer to clear paper jams only Use the knob
when the printer is off. Otherwise, you may damage the printer or change the top-of-form or tear-off position. 5. Close the printer cover and turn on the printer. Make sure the Paper Out light is not flashing and the Pause light is off.
Printing a Self Test
Running the printers self test helps you determine whether the printer or the computer is causing the problem. If the self test results are satisfactory, the printer is working properly and the problem probably results from your printer driver settings, application settings, computer, or interface cable. (Be sure to use a shielded interface cable.) If the self test does not print properly, there is a problem with the printer. See the Reference Guide for possible causes and solutions to the problem. You can print the self test using either single sheets or continuous paper of at least the following width:
Paper type Continuous paper (including perforated border) Single sheet FX-890 9.5 inches (241 mm) A4 or letter size FX-2190 14.8 inches (376 mm) A3 landscape
Make sure paper is loaded and the printer is turned off. To run the test using the Draft font, turn on the printer while holding down the LF/FF button.
