Unpacking the Printer

Your printer box should include these items.


Printout guide
BB1-01 BB1-02 BB1-03 BB1-04 BB1-05 BB1-05a Paper-feed knob Paper supports
Ribbon cartridge Power cord
In some locations, the power cord is attached to the printer.
Caution: There are several versions of this printer designed for different voltages, and it is not possible to change the voltage. If the label on the back of the printer does not show the correct voltage for your country, contact your dealer.

Slide the print head to the middle of the printer.


Turn the ribbon-tightening knob in the direction of the arrow to remove any slack from the ribbon so it is easier to install.


Insert the ribbon cartridge into the printer as shown; then press both sides of the cartridge firmly to fit the plastic hooks into the printer slots.


Use a pointed object, such as a ball point pen, to guide the ribbon between the print head and ribbon guide. Turn the ribbon tightening knob to help feed the ribbon into place; it should not be twisted or creased.


Slide the print head from side to side to make sure it moves smoothly. Re-install and close the printer cover.
When the printing becomes faint, you need to replace the ribbon cartridge. To remove the old ribbon cartridge, first move the print head to the center of the printer. Then remove the cartridge by lifting the posts on the either side and taking it out of the printer.

Plugging in the printer

1. Make sure the power switch on the printer is turned off. It is off when the N side of the switch is pressed down.


Check the label on the bottom of the printer to make sure the voltage required by the printer matches that of your electrical outlet.
Caution: If the rated voltage and your outlet voltage do not match, contact your dealer for assistance. Do not plug in the power cord.
If the power cord is not attached to the printer, connect it to the AC inlet on the printer. Plug the power cord into a properly grounded electrical outlet.

Running the Self Test

The built-in self test function demonstrates that the printer is working properly. You can run the test with either continuous paper or single sheets; this section describes the easier way, with single sheets. 1. Make sure the printer is turned off and the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. Raise the paper guide upright.


Caution: You should use paper at least 210 mm or 8 1/4 inches wide to run the self test; otherwise, the print head prints directly on the platen.
While holding down the LF/FF button, turn on the printer. The PAUSE light flashes.


Slide the left edge guide until it locks in place at the guide mark. Next, adjust the right edge guide to match the width of your paper.


Slide a sheet of paper down firmly between the edge guides until it meets resistance. The printer loads the sheet automatically. Press the PAUSE button, then the printer begins to print.


Caution: Always close the printer cover while the printer is printing. The printer cover helps the paper feed.
To stop printing temporarily, press the PAUSE button. To end the self test, make sure the printer is not printing. Press LF/FF to eject the sheet; then turn off the printer.

Here is part of a typical self-test printout:


Note: If the self test did not print satisfactorily, see Chapter 3. If it prints correctly, go on to the next section.
Connecting the Printer to Your Computer
Your printer includes both a Centronics -compatible parallel interface and an EIA-232D serial interface. Before you begin, place the printer upright, as shown below. (This makes it easier to connect the cable.)


Connect your computer to the desired interface as described below. You can connect a cable to both interfaces; the printer switches automatically to the appropriate interface when it receives data.
Using the parallel interface
You need a shielded, twisted-pair cable (not longer than 2 meters6 feet) to use the parallel interface.
Turn off both the computer and the printer. Plug the parallel cable connector securely into the printers parallel interface. Squeeze the wire clips together until they lock in place on either side of the connector.


Guide the interface cable through the slot on the side of the printer so that it does not block the paper supply as shown in the illustration on page 1-16.
Note: If there is a ground wire at the end of the cable, attach it to the ground connector at the right of the interface.
3. Plug the other end of the cable into the computers parallel interface. (If there is a ground wire at the end of the cable, attach it to the ground connector at the back of the computer.)
Using the serial interface
1. Turn off both the computer and the printer. Plug the serial cable connector securely into the printers serial interface. Tighten the screws on either side of the connector.


Note: If there is a ground wire at the end of the cable, attach it to the ground connector to the right of the interface.


Guide the interface cable through the slot on the side of the printer so that it does not block the paper supply.


Plug the other end of the cable into the computers serial interface; then tighten the screws on either side of the connector. (If there is a ground wire at the end of the cable, attach it to the ground connector at the back of the computer.) Use the Printer Setting mode to change the baud rate, parity bit, data length, or ETX/ACK if necessary. See Changing the Printer Settings in Chapter 2.


To separate the incoming paper from the printed paper, attach the paper guide by holding it horizontally and fitting its notches over the printers mounting posts as shown below. Then slide the paper guide toward the front of the printer until you feel it click.


6. Slide the left edge guide to the center until it stops at the guide mark. Then slide the right edge guide to the opposite guide mark.


Turn on the printer. Make sure the printer cover is closed. Press the LF/FF button to feed the paper to the loading position. When the printer receives data, it begins printing automatically. When you finish printing (the printer receives no data for three seconds) the printer feeds the perforation of the continuous paper to the edge of the printer cover so that you can tear off the last sheet. The PAUSE light flashes.
Note: t Set the Auto tear off feature in the Printer Setting mode to on. Otherwise, the printer does not feed the perforation to the edge of the printer cover.
t If the perforation and the edge of the printer cover do not match, adjust the paper position by following the steps in Adjusting the loading position, while the PAUSE light is flashing.
When you send more data, the paper automatically feeds back to the loading position. If you want to change the position where printing begins on the page, follow the steps on page 2-5 to adjust the loading position.
Switching back to single sheets
To switch to single sheets, press the FONT and LF/FF buttons at the same time; the printer feeds the paper backward into the paper-park position. Then, follow the steps in Loading single sheets.
Caution: Always tear off paper before back-feeding; back-feeding too many sheets can cause a paper jam.
Printing with the pull tractor
To load continuous paper using the pull tractor, you must move the tractor to the pull tractor position, as described in steps 1 through 3 below. If your tractor is already installed in this position, make sure the printer is off and skip to step 6.
Caution: When using the pull tractor, set the Auto tear off feature in the Printer Setting mode to off; otherwise the paper may jam.
Turn the printer off; then remove the paper guide. Pull the paper-release lever forward to the continuous paper position as shown in the illustration on page 2-7.
Squeeze the tractors lock tabs gently and pull the tractor away from the printer. Remove the printer cover.


Lift the tractor forward to the mounting slot at the top of the printer and tilt it into place as shown below. When you push the tractor onto the posts, you should feel the notches snap into place.


Use the table below to select the appropriate paper thickness.
Paper type Standard paper (single sheets or continuous) Multi-part forms 2-sheet 3-sheet Labels Envelopes 18 to 22 lb 24 lb Lever position 2 3
Close the cover. When you finish printing, move the paper-thickness lever back to position 0.

Multi-part forms

You can use the built-in tractor to print on carbonless multi-part forms of up to three parts (one original plus two copies). Before you print on the forms, set the paper thickness lever as described in the previous section. These tips will help you get good results: t Load multi-part forms with the tractor only, not in the cut-sheet feeder or paper guide. For instructions, see Printing on Continuous Paper on page 2-7. Use only multi-part forms that are joined by spot gluing and that are free of wrinkles and waves. Never load multi-part forms joined by metal staples, tape, or continuous gluing. If you need to adjust the loading position, use your software program or change the loading position as described on page 2-5. When you use side-crimped multi-part forms, the copies may not align with the original. If this happens, raise the paper guide.


You must use the tractor as a pull tractor to print on labels. Keep these tips in mind: t Choose labels mounted on a continuous backing sheet with sprocket holes made for use with a tractor. Do not print labels as single sheets, because the shiny backing sheet almost always slips a little. You load labels the same way you load continuous paper, except that the paper thickness lever should be set to 1. See page 2-11 for loading instructions.
Because labels are especially sensitive to temperature and humidity, use them only under normal operating conditions. Make sure the printing stays entirely within the printable area. (See the Appendix for specifications.) Dont leave labels loaded in the printer between jobs; they curl around the platen and may jam when you resume printing. To remove the labels from the printer, tear off the fresh supply at the rear of the printer; then press LF/FF to advance the remaining labels out of the printer.

Caution: Never feed labels backward through the printer; they can easily peel off the backing and jam the printer. If a label does become stuck in the printer, contact your dealer.


You can feed envelopes individually using the paper guide. t Before loading an envelope, set the paper thickness lever to 2 or 3. See page 2-16. To load an envelope, follow the steps in Running the Self Test on page 1-10. Insert the wide edge of the envelope into the printer first, printable-side down. When you insert the envelope between the paper guides, push it firmly and hold it until it feeds into the printer. Use envelopes only under normal temperature and humidity conditions. Make sure the printing stays entirely within the printable area. The print head must not go past the left or right edge of the envelope or other thick paper. (See the Appendix for specifications.) Its a good idea to print a test sample using a normal single sheet of paper before you print on the envelopes.
Changing the Printer Settings
Your printer has internal settings that control simple functions such as the page length and character set. These settings take effect each time you turn on the printer, so they are also called default settings. Because the factory printer settings are designed to meet the needs of most users, you probably will not need to change them. See Printer Settings on page A-9.
Note: Because software settings always override the printers default settings, use your software program to control the printer, if possible. See your software documentation for more information.
If you cannot use your software program to change the printers settings, you can use the Printer Setting mode. Heres how:
Caution: Use paper at least 210 mm (8 1/4 inches) wide for single sheets or 240 mm (9 1/2 inches) for continuous paper; otherwise the print head prints directly on the platen. Also make sure you have enough sheets of paper because the printer prints several pages of help text.
Turn off the printer; if you use continuous paper, make sure the paper is loaded correctly.
Hold down the FONT button while you turn on the printer. If you are using single sheets, insert a sheet of paper. The printer automatically loads the paper and prints out a table of languages from which you can choose. You can print instructions in English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish, as shown in Table A below.

Table A

FONT Lights O O N N N N F O N F Language English French German Italian Spanish
F = flashing, N = on, O = off
To choose a language, press the FONT button repeatedly until the FONT lights match your desired selection. For example, to choose Spanish, press the FONT button until FONT 1 is on and FONT 2 is flashing. Press the LF/FF to select the language. The printer prints the current settings in the language of your choice, and then stops. Press the FONT button now to print help text that guides you through the operations. (Once you are experienced with the Printer Setting mode, you can skip this step by pressing LF/FF instead.) The printed instructions include submenu tables that list all of the settings you can change and show you how the control panel lights appear for each selection. After printing is finished, go on to step 6. At this point, you are in Table B. Press the FONT button to move through the printer settings listed in Table B, and notice how the control panel lights change to indicate your position.

The paper may be too long. Use paper that is within the specified range. See the paper specifications in the Appendix.
Continuous paper does not feed properly
The tractor does not feed the paper. Check that the paper-release lever is pulled forward to the continuous-paper position. If not, turn off the printer, move the lever, and turn it on again. The paper may have come off the tractor. Reattach the paper to the tractor. Paper feeding is crooked or the paper jams. The position of your paper supply may be preventing it from feeding straight. Make sure the paper supply is not obstructed. Make sure that your paper supply is positioned within 1 meter (3 feet) of the printer. Make sure the printer cover is closed. Make sure the edge guide postions are correct. Position the edge guides at the diamond-shaped guide marks. Check that the holes on the sides of the paper are aligned with each other. Also, make sure the sprocket units are locked and their covers are closed. Check that the paper size and thickness are within the specified range. See the paper specifications in the Appendix. When you use side-crimped multi-part forms, the copies may not align with the original. If this happens, raise the paper guide to keep the printing position accurate.
The paper does not eject properly. The page may be too long. Tear off the fresh supply of paper and eject the page from the printer. Use only paper that is within the specified length range described in the Appendix. When you switch between single sheets and continuous paper, the beeper sounds five times and the PAUSE light comes on. You may have tried to change the paper-release lever position while paper remained in the printer. Return the paper-release lever to the previous position and eject the paper. Then change the paper-release lever position.


When you use the cut-sheet feeder, the paper does not feed properly
The paper does not feed. The cut-sheet feeder may be incorrectly installed on the printer. Re-install it as described on page 2-25. Make sure the paper-release lever is pushed back to the single-sheet position. You may have loaded too many sheets in the cut-sheet feeders bin. Paper may be jammed near the print head. Look for a paper jam. Make sure the edge guide positions are correct. Position the edge guides at the diamond-shaped guide marks. There may be only one sheet left in the bin. Add more paper.

Two or more sheets feed at one time. You may have loaded too many sheets in the cut-sheet feeders bin. You may have forgotten to fan the stack of paper before loading it into the bin. Remove the paper and fan it. The paper feed is crooked. The paper may be old or creased. Use only new, clean sheets of paper. There may be too much paper in the stacker. Make sure that the paper guides are set correctly and that your paper is the proper size and quality. See the Appendix for paper specifications. One page of printing has spread to two pages. Check that the page-length setting and lines-per-page setting in your software are correct. See Getting the results you expect on page 2-6.
Switching between the cut-sheet feeder and the push tractor does not work properly
The desired paper type does not load. The paper-release lever may not be in the proper position. Pull the lever forward to load continuous paper or push the lever back to load single sheets.
Using the pull tractor with the push tractor, continuous paper does not feed properly
Paper feed is crooked or the paper jams. The pull tractor and push tractor sprockets are not aligned correctly. When using both tractors, be sure that the sprockets on both are positioned evenly. The paper may have too much slack. Adjust the position of the sprockets to take up any slack along the width of the paper. Remove slack lengthwise by rotating the paper-feed knob. The paper may be caught on the edge guides. Make sure that the paper guide is installed over the paper and that the edge guides are positioned correctly.
With color upgrade kit installed, printer doesnt operate properly
The lights on the control panel do not go on. Did you install the motor in the color upgrade kit? Follow the instructions on page 2-32. The desired color or certain characters are not printed. Your software program may not be properly set up for color printing. Use the programs setup (or install) procedure to check the printer setting and adjust as needed.If your software program is capable of sending control codes, select the color using the ESC r command. (See the Command Summary in the Appendix.) The ribbon cartridge may not be installed properly. See Chapter 2.

Command Summary

Sending printer commands
Most actions your printer performs are controlled by your software. Software commands instruct the printer to print in a particular typeface, feed the paper a certain amount after printing each line, start printing on a particular place on the page, and so on. The commands your printer recognizes are listed in this command summary. Some software programs let you send these commands yourself. How you format commands depends on the software you are using. Some software programs accept only the decimal format, while others let you type in ASCII characters. (Some programs dont let you insert printer commands at all.) In addition, your software probably specifies certain punctuation you must use to enter the command. The software manual should explain the required format and punctuation.
Using the command summary
The following section lists and describes all the commands by topic. If a command has no parameters, it is merely listed. If it has parameters, they are explained. The parameters are indicated by lowercase italicized letters, usually n. The examples below show how the parameters are indicated. ESC @ is a command with no parameters. ESC U 1/0 is a command that uses 1 to turn the feature on and 0 to turn it off. ESC K n1 n2 is a command with two parameters. ESC D nn is a command with a variable number of parameters. For further information about using printer commands, see the comprehensive ESC/P Reference Manual published by Epson.
