Epson Stylus Color Ink Jet Printer

Selected FAQ

I can print from DOS fine, but I am getting garbage from my Windows applications. What's wrong?
Go to Windows and make sure the correct printer driver is selected. In Control Panel Printer Connect, try setting the printer port to LPT1.DOS, disable fast printing direct to port, and disable print manager. Reinstall the printer cable and try printing again. Try installing the Epson LQ-2550 as the Windows Default Printer. Go to Printer Setup, maximize the print resolution and change the paper source to "Sheet Feeder Bin 1". Try printing again. If this prints fine, get an updated version of the Stylus COLOR IIs driver. Sometimes the video driver causes a conflict with the printer driver. To determine if this is the cause of the problem, change the video driver to the Windows standard VGA mode and try printing again. Make sure you write down the name of the video driver prior to changing the video driver to VGA. If the video driver is not the cause of the problem and the condition persists, move the cable and printer to another PC to determine if the problem is hardware or software related. A printer cable more than 10 feet could also cause this problem.
