Epson Stylus Color 640 Ink Jet Printer

Selected FAQ

How can I print from DOS, from older applications, or with ESC codes?
The Stylus Color 300/400/440/640/660 and Stylus Photo series inkjet printers are not DOS compatible. Unlike other EPSON models, they are designed primarily for Windows therefore will not accept printer ESC codes. These Stylus Color printers use ESC/P Raster language and the LQ models use ESC/P2. The difference in the languages prevents the printers from emulating the LQ or any other models.
You can try selecting one of the following Epson LQ models in your driver selection, but the results may not be positive.

LQ-2550 (color)
LQ-860 (color)
