DFX-5000+ Impact Printer

Selected FAQ

Q:
When I print from an MS-DOS application, everything is double-spaced. When I print from Windows applications, characters have a white line in the middle. How can I correct this?
A:
Try to print the self-test. If the self-test prints correctly, make sure dip switch 2-3 is OFF. If it is ON, turn the printer off, move dip switch 2-3 to the OFF position, then turn the printer back on and try printing. If you still experience the same issue, the cable you are using may be causing problems. You may be getting interference or "static" which can cause the printer to insert an extra line feed. Try changing the cable. If it still is not working, take the printer to another computer, with the same cable, and try printing. If it prints fine on another computer, you may be having problems with your computer's port. Have the computer checked. There is a very slight chance the error is in the printer's port, but if necessary, have the printer serviced by an authorized EPSON service center.
