HATE IT with a seething passion! BUYER BEWARE! I purchased the Epson joyfully to replace a HP model that just stopped printing.

When I got my computer back in 1999 I chose the Epson Stylus color 777 printer; I wanted something that would perform very well in printing out my fam... Build Quality: average. When I first took this printer home, it felt nice and solid, and it felt like it would last.

Even if you print exclusively in black and White, it expends color from the color cartridges which you MUST replace if you want to use the printer.

Fascinating and informitive although there are some facta that get cut off or start partway through.... also the developer seems to love turkey facts Totally worth it. Some of the facts have typos, and some make zero sense at all, but the vast majority of the TEN THOUSAND facts are way cool! Get it Great app had it for a few months now and i look at the widget everytime im on my phone. Be cool if we could chose how often the fact changes.

This chap ter d escribes how to u se op tional equ ip m ent w ith you r p rinter, inclu d ing cu t-sheet feed ers, a roll p ap er hold er, and interface card s.

Cut-Sheet Feeders

Tw o cu t-sheet feed ers are available for u se w ith you r p rinter:
Printer model LQ-670 High ca pa city (bin 1) C80678V Second bin (bin 2) C80679V
The a sterisk (V) is a sub stitute fo r the la st d ig it, whic h va ries b y c ountry. Co nta c t yo ur loc a l EPSON d ea ler for the p a rt num b e r in yo ur c ountry.
You can install the high-cap acity cu t-sheet feed er by itself, or you can assem ble and install a d ou ble-bin cu t-sheet feed er by com bining the high-cap acity and second -bin feed ers. When the d ou ble-bin cu t-sheet feed er is installed , the high-cap acity cu t-sheet feed er is u sed as bin 1 and the second -bin feed er is u sed as bin 2.
Not e: The second-bin feeder can be used only in combination with the high-capacity feeder.
Before you install a cu t-sheet feed er, read the m anu al that com es w ith it. The cu t-sheet feed er m anu al p rovid es instru ctions on how to com bine the tw o cu t-sheet feed ers to create the d ou ble-bin cu t-sheet feed er.
You can load u p to 150 single sheets of p ap er, 40 single-sheet m u lti-p art form s, 25 envelop es, or 50 p ostcard s in the high-cap acity cu t-sheet feed er (bin 1 of the d ou ble-bin feed er). You can load an ad d itional 50 single sheets in the second -bin cu t-sheet feed er (bin 2 of the d ou ble-bin feed er). With the d ou ble-bin cu t-sheet feed er, you can load tw o d ifferent typ es or sizes of p ap er at one tim e.
Not e: For detailed paper specifications, see A ppendix A.
Insta lling the cut-sheet feeder
The cu t-sheet feed er com es w ith a sheet gu id e for stacking p rinted sheets. To install the cu t-sheet feed er, you need to attach both the cu t-sheet feed er and the sheet gu id e. Follow the step s below.
Not e: Y ou install both the high capacity cut-sheet feeder and the double-bin cut-sheet feeder the same way, as described below. Before you install the double-bin cut-sheet feeder, however, assemble it as described in the cut-sheet feeder manual.
1. 2. Make su re the p rinter is tu rned off. Close the sp rocket covers if they are op en, and lock the sp rocket u nits by p u shing d ow n the lock levers if necessary.
Not e: Y ou do not need to remove your continuous paper from the tractor to use the cut-sheet feeder. For information on switching between the cut-sheet feeder and continuous paper, see page 5-13.
Move the p ap er release lever to the single-sheet p osition. H old the cu t-sheet feed er by p lacing you r hand s on both sid es of it. While hold ing d ow n the bu ttons on both sid es, fit the notches on each sid e of the feed er over the m ou nting p osts on the p rinter. Low er the cu t-sheet feed er u ntil it rests on the p rinter. A55new

If you r p rinting becom es faint, you m ay need to rep lace the ribbon cartrid ge. (See Chap ter 7, Trou bleshooting, for m ore inform ation.) If you d o need to rep lace the ribbon, EPSON recom m end s the u se of the EPSON Ribbon Cartrid ge (S015016) for best resu lts. Genu ine EPSON ribbon cartrid ges are d esigned for you r EPSON p rinter; their high qu ality ensu res the p rop er op eration and long life of the p rint head and other p rinter p arts. Other p rod u cts not m anu factu red by EPSON m ay cau se d am age to you r p rinter not covered by EPSON s w arranties. To rep lace the ribbon cartrid ge, follow these step s: 1. Press the Op era te bu tton to tu rn off the p rinter and then op en the p rinter cover.
W arning: If the printer has been used recently, the print head may be hot. Let it cool before attempting to replace the ribbon cartridge.
Make su re the p rint head is at the ribbon installation p osition (the m id d le p osition w here the front m etal p late is ind ented ), as show n below. If the p rint head is not at this p osition, m ove the p rint head to the correct p osition.
Not e: The print head moves to the ribbon installation position automatically if the printer is on and no data is sent to the printer for several seconds.
Squ eeze the tabs on each sid e of the cartrid ge, and p u ll the cartrid ge ou t of the p rinter.
Rem ove the new ribbon cartrid ge from its p ackage and tu rn the ribbon-tightening knob in the d irection of the arrow to rem ove any slack in the ribbon.

Cleaning the Printer

To keep you r p rinter op erating at its best, you shou ld clean it thorou ghly several tim es a year. Follow these step s: 1. Tu rn off the p rinter and rem ove any p ap er as w ell as the p ap er gu id e. If an op tional cu t-sheet feed er is installed , rem ove it. Use a soft bru sh to carefu lly bru sh aw ay all d u st and d irt from the other case. If the ou ter case and the p ap er gu id e are still d irty or d u sty, clean them w ith a soft, clean cloth d am p ened w ith m ild d etergent d issolved in w ater. Keep the p rinter cover closed to p revent w ater from getting insid e the p rinter.
Caut ion: t N ever use alcohol or thinners to clean the printer; these chemicals can damage the printer components as well as the case.
Be careful not to get water on the printer mechanism or electronic components. Do not use a hard or abrasive brush. Do not spray the inside of the printer with lubricants; unsuitable oils can damage the printer mechanism. Contact your EPSON dealer if you think lubrication is needed.

Transporting the Printer

If you need to transp ort you r p rinter som e d istance, carefu lly rep ack it as d escribed below , u sing the original box and p acking m aterials. 1. 2. Tu rn off the p rinter and rem ove any p ap er load ed in the p rinter. Unp lu g the p ow er cord from the electrical ou tlet; then d isconnect the interface cable from the p rinter. If an op tional cu t-sheet feed er is installed , rem ove it.

Caut ion: W henever you turn off the printer, wait at least five seconds before turning it back on; otherwise you may damage the printer.
2. To ru n the test using the Draft font, hold d ow n the LF/ FF button w hile you press the Op era te bu tton to tu rn on the printer. To ru n the test using the p rinters letter-qu ality fonts, hold d ow n the Loa d / Ejec t button w hile you tu rn on the printer. Either self test can help you d eterm ine the sou rce of your p rinting problem ; how ever, the d raft self test prints faster than the letter-quality test. See pages 4-5 and 4-6 for m ore inform ation on u sing fonts.
After a few second s, the printer load s the p ap er autom atically, and then begins p rinting the self test. A series of characters is p rinted. Not e: To temporarily stop the self test, press the Pa use button. To resume the test, press the Pa use button again. 3. To end the self test, p ress the Pa use button to stop p rinting. If paper rem ains in the p rinter, press the Loa d / Ejec t bu tton to eject the p rinted p age. Then tu rn off the p rinter.
Caut ion: Do not turn off the printer while it is printing. A lways press the Pa use button to stop printing, and the Loa d / Ejec t button to eject the printed page before you turn off the printer.

Using Hex Dump Mode

If you are an experienced user or a p rogram m er, you can p rint a hexad ecim al d um p to isolate com m u nication p roblem s betw een the printer and your softw are program. In hex d um p m od e, the printer prints all d ata it receives from the com pu ter as hexad ecim al valu es. To print a hex d um p , follow the steps below. 1. Make su re that A4 (m m , 8.3 11.7 inches) or w id er p ap er (su ch as letter size paper) is load ed in the p rinter. 2. To enter hex d u m p m od e, hold d ow n both the LF/ FF and Loa d / Ejec t buttons w hile you press the Op era te bu tton to tu rn on the printer.
3. Open a softw are p rogram and send a print job to the p rinter. You r printer prints all the cod es it receives in hexad ecim al form at.
By com paring the characters p rinted in the right colu m n w ith the p rintou t of the hexad ecim al cod es, you can check the cod es being received by the printer. If characters are printable, they app ear in the right colum n as ASCII characters. N onprintable cod es, su ch as control cod es, are represented by d ots. 4. To tu rn off hex d u m p m od e, p ress the PAUSE bu tton, eject the printed page(s), and then turn off the printer.

The p ap er release lever is set to the tractor p osition.
The platen does not rotate and the printer does not feed the paper.
The p ap er on the p ap er gu id e Move the p ap er a little to the left or is p ositioned too far to the left right. or right for the p ap er sensor to d etect it.
The platen rotates but the printer does not feed the paper.
The ed ge gu id es are p ressed too tightly against the p ap er. The p ap er release lever is set to the tractor p osition.
Reinsert the p ap er all the w ay into the p rinter. Make su re that the ed ge gu id es are not too close to the p ap er. Set the p ap er release lever to the single-sheet p osition. See Setting the p ap er release lever in Chap ter 3.
Paper feeding is crooked or the paper jams.
The p ap er gu id e is not p rop erly installed. The ed ge gu id es are not p ositioned correctly. You m ay not be u sing the right typ e of p ap er for the p rinter. The p ap er is old or creased.
Rem ove the p ap er gu id e and install it as d escribed in Attaching the p ap er gu id e in Chap ter 1. Move the ed ge gu id es so that they m atch the w id th of you r p ap er. Be su re you re u sing the right typ e of p ap er. See the p ap er sp ecifications in Ap p end ix A. Use only new , clean sheets of p ap er.
Not e: If paper is jammed in the paper path, see Clearing a Paper Jam later in this chapter.
The printer does not fully eject the paper.
You m ay not be able to fu lly eject you r p ap er u sing the LF/ FF bu tton. You r p ap er m ay be too long.
Use the Lo a d / Eje c t bu tton to eject the p ap er. Make su re the p age length of you r p ap er is w ithin the sp ecified range. See the single-sheet p ap er sp ecifications in Ap p end ix A. Also check and ad ju st the p ap er size setting in you r ap p lication or the p rinter d river.
