❏ Because the printer weighs approximately 34.6 kg (76.3 lb)
with consumable products installed, one person should not
lift or carry it. Two people should carry the printer, lifting it
by the correct positions as shown below.
❏ Be careful not to touch the fuser, which is marked CAUTION
HIGH TEMPERATURE, or the surrounding areas. If the printer
has been in use, the fuser and the surrounding areas may be
very hot. If you must touch one of these areas, wait 30 minutes
to allow the heat to subside before doing so.

1. Do not insert your hand deep into the fuser unit.
2. CAUTION HIGH TEMPERATURE
❏ Do not insert your hand deep into the fuser unit as some
components are sharp and may cause injury.
❏ Avoid touching the components inside the printer unless
instructed to do so in this guide.
❏ Never force the printer’s components into place. Although the
printer is designed to be sturdy, rough handling can damage
it.
❏ When handling a toner cartridge, always place it on a clean,
smooth surface.
❏ Do not attempt to modify a toner cartridge or take it apart.
They cannot be refilled.
❏ Do not touch the toner. Keep the toner away from your eyes.
❏ Do not dispose of used toner cartridge, photoconductor unit,
fuser unit, or transfer unit in fire, as they can explode and
cause injury. Dispose of them according to local regulations.
❏ If toner is spilled, use a broom and dustpan or a damp cloth
with soap and water to clean it up. Because the fine particles
can cause a fire or explosion if they come into contact with a
spark, do not use a vacuum cleaner.
❏ Wait at least one hour before using a toner cartridge after
moving it from a cool to a warm environment to prevent
damage from condensation.

❏ When removing the photoconductor unit, avoid exposing it
to room light for more than five minutes. The unit contains a
green-colored light-sensitive drum. Exposure to light can
damage the drum, causing dark or light areas to appear on
the printed page and reducing the service life of the drum. If
you need to keep the unit out of the printer for long periods,
cover it with an opaque cloth.
❏ Be careful not to scratch the surface of the drum. When you
remove the photoconductor unit from the printer, always
place the unit on a clean, smooth surface. Avoid touching the
drum, since oil from your skin can permanently damage its
surface and affect print quality.
❏ To get the best print quality, do not store the photoconductor
unit in an area subject to direct sunlight, dust, salty air, or
corrosive gases (such as ammonia). Avoid locations subject to
extreme or rapid changes in temperature or humidity.
❏ Be sure to keep consumable components out of the reach of
children.
❏ Do not leave jammed paper inside the printer. This can cause
the printer to overheat.
❏ Avoid sharing outlets with other appliances.
❏ Use only an outlet that meets the power requirements of this
printer.

Ozone safety
Ozone emission
Ozone gas is generated by laser printers as a by-product of the
printing process. Ozone is produced only when the printer is
printing.
Ozone exposure limit
The recommended exposure limit for ozone is 0.1 parts per
million (ppm) expressed as an average time-weighted
concentration over an eight (8) hour period.
The Epson laser printer generates less than 0.1 ppm for eight (8)
hours of continuous printing.
Minimize the risk
To minimize the risk of exposure to ozone, you should avoid the
following conditions:
❏ Use of multiple laser printers in a confined area
❏ Operation in conditions of extremely low humidity
❏ Poor room ventilation
❏ Long, continuous printing together with any of the above
Printer location
The printer should be located so that the exhaust gases and heat
generated are:
❏ Not blown directly into the user’s face
❏ Vented directly out of the building whenever possible

Sharing the Printer on a Network
Sharing the printer
This section describes how to share the printer on a standard
Windows network.
The computers on a network can share a printer that is directly
connected to one of them. The computer that is directly connected
to the printer is the print server, and the other computers are the
clients which need permission to share the printer with the print
server. The clients share the printer via the print server.
According to the versions of Windows OS and your access rights
on the network, perform the appropriate settings of the print
server and clients.
Setting the print server
❏ For Windows Me or 98, see "Setting up your printer as a
shared printer" on page 129.

Making the print quality settings

You can change the print quality of printouts through settings in
the printer driver. With the printer driver, you can make the print
settings by choosing from a list of predefined settings, or
customizing the settings.
Choosing the print quality by using the Automatic setting
You can change the print quality of printouts to favor speed or
detail. There are three levels of print output, Fast, Fine, and Super
Fine. Fine and Super Fine provide high quality, precise printing,
but requires more memory and slows the printing speed.
When Automatic is selected on the Basic Settings tab, the printer
driver takes care of all detailed settings according to the color
setting you select. Color and resolution are the only settings you
need to make. You can change other settings such as paper size
or orientation in most applications.
For Mac OS X users

Using the Control Panel
Using the Control Panel Menus
You can use the printer’s control panel to access a variety of
menus that allow you to check the status of consumable products,
print status sheets, and make printer settings. This section
describes how to use the control panel menus, and when it is
appropriate to make printer settings using the control panel.
When to make control panel settings
In general, printer settings can be made from the printer driver,
and do not need to be made using the control panel. In fact, printer
driver settings override settings made using the control panel, so
use the control panel menus only to make settings you cannot
make in your software or printer driver, including the following:
❏ Changing the emulation modes and selecting the IES
(Intelligent Emulation Switching) mode
❏ Specifying a channel and configuring the interface
❏ Choosing the size of the memory buffer used to receive data
How to access the control panel menus
For a complete description of the items and settings available in
the control panel menus, see "Control Panel Menus" on page 216.

Auto Eject Page
Specifies whether or not to eject paper when the limit specified in
the Time Out setting is reached. The default is Off, which means
paper is not ejected when the time-out limit is reached.
Size Ignore
If you want to ignore a paper size error, select On. When you turn
this item on, the printer keeps printing even if the image size
exceeds the printable area for the specified paper size. This may
cause smudges because of the toner that is not transferred onto
the paper properly. When this item is turned off, the printer stops
printing if a paper size error occurs.
Auto Cont
When you turn this setting on, the printer automatically continues
printing after a certain period of time when one of the following
errors occurs: Paper Set, Print Overrun, or Mem Overflow. When
this option is off, you must press the N Start/Stop button to
resume printing.
Page Protect
Allocates additional printer memory for printing data, as
opposed to receiving it. You may need to turn this setting on if
you are printing a very complex page. If a Print Overrun error
message appears on the LCD panel during printing, turn this
setting on and reprint your data. This reduces the amount of
memory reserved for processing data so your computer may take
longer to send the print job, but it will allow you to print complex
jobs. Page Protect usually works best when Auto is selected. You
will need to increase your printer’s memory if memory errors
continue to occur.
Note:
Changing the Page Protect setting reconfigures the printer’s memory,
which causes any downloaded fonts to be deleted.

Printout Problems
The font cannot be printed
Cause
What to do
You may use the printer fonts
substituted for specified TrueType
fonts.
In the printer driver, choose the Print
TrueType fonts as bitmap button in the
Extended Settings dialog box.
The selected font is not supported
by your printer.
Make sure that you have installed the
correct font. See "Available Fonts" on
page 446 for more information.
Printout is garbled
Cause
What to do
The interface cable may not be
plugged in securely.
Make sure that both ends of the interface
cable are plugged in securely.
You may not be using the correct
interface cable.
If you are using the parallel interface,
make sure that the cable is a
double-shielded, twisted-pair interface
cable no more than six feet in length.
If you are using the USB interface, use a
Revision 2.0 cable.
The emulation setting for the port
may not be correct.
Specify the emulation mode by using the
printer’s control panel menus. See
"Emulation Menu" on page 221.
Note:
If a status sheet does not print correctly, your printer may be damaged.

The color looks different from what you see on
the computer screen
11
11
Cause
What to do
Printed colors do not exactly match
the colors on your monitor, since
printers and monitors use different
color systems: monitors use RGB
(red, green, and blue), while
printers typically use CMYK (cyan,
magenta, yellow, and black).
Although it is difficult to match colors
perfectly, selecting the printer driver’s
ICM setting (for Windows XP, Me, 98, 2000,
or Server 2003) or ColorSync setting (for
Macintosh) can improve color matching
between different devices. For details,
see "Using the predefined settings" on
page 64 for Windows, and "Using the
predefined settings" on page 148 for
Macintosh.
For Macintosh, the System Profile
setting is not in use.
To apply ColorSync properly, your input
device and the application must support
ColorSync, and a System Profile must be
used for your monitor.
PhotoEnhance may be selected in
the printer driver.
The PhotoEnhance feature corrects the
contrast and brightness of the original
image data, and so may not be suitable
for printing vivid images.

Note:
If there is an error in the bar code character string, such as
inappropriate data, the bar code will be printed as it appears on the
screen, but it cannot be read by a bar code reader.
Notes on inputting and formatting bar codes
Please note the following when inputting and formatting bar code
characters:
❏ Do not apply shading or special character formatting, such as
bold, italic, or underline.
❏ Print bar codes in black and white only.
❏ When rotating characters, only specify rotation angles of 90°,
180°, and 270°.
❏ Turn off all automatic character and word spacing settings in
your application.
❏ Do not use features in your application that enlarge or reduce
the size of characters in only the vertical or horizontal
direction.
❏ Turn off your application’s auto-correct features for spelling,
grammar, spacing, etc.
❏ To more easily distinguish bar codes from other text in your
document, set your application to show text symbols, such as
paragraph marks, tabs, etc.
❏ Because special characters such as Start bar and Stop bar are
added when an EPSON BarCode Font is selected, the
resulting bar code may have more characters than were
originally input.

Information about Fonts

❏ For best results, use only the font sizes recommended in
"BarCode Font specifications" on page 435 for the EPSON
BarCode Font you are using. Bar codes in other sizes may not
be readable with all bar code readers.
Note:
Depending on the print density, or on the quality or color of the paper,
bar codes may not be readable with all bar code readers. Print a sample
and make sure the bar code can be read before printing large quantities.

Selecting Fonts
C
Whenever possible select fonts in your application. See your
software documentation for instructions.
If you are sending unformatted text to the printer directly from
DOS or if you are using a simple software package that does not
include font selection, you can select fonts using the printer’s
control panel menus when in the ESC/P 2, FX, or I239X emulation
mode.
Downloading Fonts
Fonts that reside on your computer’s hard disk can be
downloaded, or transferred, to the printer so they can be printed.
Downloaded fonts, also called soft fonts, remain in printer
memory until you turn off the printer or otherwise reset it. If you
plan on downloading many fonts, make sure your printer has
sufficient memory.
Most font packages make it easy to manage fonts by providing
their own installer. The installer gives you the option of having
the fonts automatically downloaded whenever you start your
computer or having fonts downloaded only when you need to
print a particular font.

Symbol Sets
Introduction to Symbol Sets
Your printer can access a variety of symbol sets. Many of these
symbol sets differ only in the international characters specific to
each language.
Note:
Since most software handles fonts and symbols automatically, you will
probably never need to adjust the printer’s settings. However, if you are
writing your own printer control programs, or if you are using older
software that cannot control fonts, refer to the following sections for
symbol set details.
456
Information about Fonts
Downloaded from ManualsPrinter.com Manuals
When you are considering which font to use, you should also
consider which symbol set to combine with the font. Available
symbol sets vary depending on which emulation mode you use
and which font you choose.
