Epson EPL-5700i Laser Printer

Selected FAQ

Q:
How can I set up the printer for the fastest printing?
A:
Faster printing with a Direct Memory Access (DMA) is possible if your printer is connected to your computer through an Extended Capability Port (ECP), a type of parallel port with expanded specifications. With the DMA and the ECP, you can send print-job data directly to the printer without going through the CPU, which increases the effectiveness of data flow. Before using DMA to transmit a print job confirm the following points.
- Check if your computer supports DMA. To confirm if your computer has an ECP chip installed, contact the manufacturer or look in the computer's documentation.
- Confirm the parallel port setting is "ECP" or "ENHANCED" through the BIOS Setup. Refer to your computer's documentation to set the BIOS. However, before setting the BIOS, uninstall the EPL-5700i printer driver. After setting the BIOS, re-install the printer driver.
