Note:
Most software programs control the character table and auto line
feed. If your software program controls these features, you may
never need to set them with the control panel.
Mixed text/graphics mode
Default settings descriptions
This feature is for software that has problems printing
scalable font text combined with graphics. Leave the mixed
text/graphics mode set to off if you do not notice any
problems in your printout.
Character table
Auto line feed
Character tables contain the characters and symbols used by
different languages. The printer prints text with the selected
character table. When you select this feature, the font lights
on the control panel go on or off to indicate the current
selection.
When the auto line feed feature is on, each carriage return
(CR) code is accompanied by a line feed (LF) code. If your
printed text is unexpectedly double-spaced, set this feature to
off. If text lines print on top of each other, set it to on.
Auto print direction
This feature is necessary when an optional interface card is
installed and interface cables are connected to both the
parallel interface and the optional interface card.
Auto interface selection
When auto print direction is set to on, the printer switches
automatically between bidirectional (for text data) and
unidirectional motion (for graphics data). When this feature
is set to off, the print head motion is controlled by your
software.
When this feature is on, the printer determines which
interface receives data and then switches to that interface
until the end of the print job (when no data is received from
the selected interface for the amount of time specified by the
Auto interface wait time). Usually, you should set this
feature to on.
Continuous-paper page length
When you are printing on continuous paper, this feature lets
you select from four page lengths.
Skip-over-perforation
When this feature is on and you are using continuous paper,
the printer leaves a 1-inch (25.4-mm) margin between the last
printable line on one page and the first printable line on the
next page. This causes the printer to skip over the perforation
between continuous sheets.
Most software takes care of the top and bottom margins. Do
not turn on skip-over-perforation unless your software does
not provide these margins.
Adjust your top-of-form position with the micro-feed feature
to get half of the margin at the bottom of one page and half at
the top of the next page.
Network interface mode
If your printer is connected to a single computer, leave this
feature off. If you want to use the printer in a network
environment and share it among multiple computers, set this
feature to on.
Note:
When this feature is set to on, data may be present in the printer’s
buffer even though the printer is not continuously printing.
Always make sure the DATA light is off before turning off the
printer.
When this feature is set to off, the printer receives data only
from the interface specified by the DIP switch on the optional
interface card.
Auto interface wait time
This feature is necessary when the auto interface selection
is set to on. If the data from the computer is not sent within
the specified period, the printer re-determines the source of
any new data. Otherwise, the printer receives data only from
the currently selected interface and ignores data from the
other interface. You can set the time to either 10 seconds or
30 seconds.
Tear off
You can set this feature on to select tear-off mode. Use the
tear-off feature only with continuous paper. Do not use the
tear-off feature with labels.
Changing the default settings
To change the printer’s default settings, follow the steps
below:
1. Make sure the printer is turned off and paper is loaded in
the paper feeder.
2. Hold down the ECONOMY/CONDENSED button and turn
on the printer to enter the default-settings mode.
The printer loads a sheet of paper and prints a brief
summary and instructions. It instructs you to select the
language that you want messages printed in (English,
French, German, Italian, or Spanish).

Installing the Ink Cartridge
Each ink cartridge contains enough ink to print about 700
pages. The exact number of pages a single cartridge can print
varies according to the amount of text and graphics on each
page.
5. Open the foil package containing the ink cartridge and
remove it from the protective cardboard. Be sure to
remove the tape seal from the ink cartridge.
6. Lower the cartridge into the holder with the label face up
and the arrow mark on the cartridge toward the arrow

automatically.
3. Open the printer cover.
4. Pull the top of the ink cartridge clamp toward you to
open it.
8. Press the ALT button again to charge the ink delivery
system. It takes about one minute. The PAUSE light flashes
throughout the cycle and turns off when the ink charging
has finished.
c
Caution:
Do not turn off or reset the printer until the ink-charging
cycle is complete.
9. Close the printer cover.

Testing the Printer
After you charge the ink delivery system, you can use the
built-in self test to make sure the printer is working properly.
You can run the self test with paper from the built-in paper
feeder or by feeding a sheet manually. This section describes
loading paper in the paper feeder.
3. Move the center support to the center of both edge guides.
When you load A4 or A3 size paper in the landscape
direction, adjust the center support until you can see the
paper size you are using through the cutout in the center
support.
Loading paper in the paper feeder
1. Open the paper feeder cover while holding up the lever on
the right side.
4. Fan a stack of paper; then tap it on a flat surface to even the
edges. While aligning the paper’s edges with the edge
guides, insert it with the printable surface face down all
the way into the paper feeder until it meets resistance.
2. Slowly slide the right edge guide as far to the left as it will
go, and align it to the guide mark. Then adjust the left
edge guide to match the width of your paper. You may
also use the guide mark for A4 size paper. When you load
paper 420 mm (16.5 inches) wide, move the right edge
guide as far to the right as it will go.
* Right for 420 mm
wide paper
A: A4 portrait
B: Letter/legal portrait
C: Letter landscape
D: A4 landscape
E: Legal landscape
F: B4 landscape
Note:
The paper feeder holds up to 100 sheets (the maximum for 64-g/m2
or 16-lb. paper). Do not load paper higher than the mark on the
edge guide.
5. Close the paper feeder cover.
When you send data to the printer or when you run the self
test, the printer advances the paper to the loading position
and starts printing.
Now you are ready to run the self test.

Running the self test
Tips for Using the Paper Feeder
1. Make sure the printer is turned off.
2. While holding down the FONT button, turn on the printer.
It loads a sheet of paper automatically from the paper
feeder and begins the self test.
In LQ mode, the printer prints characters in each font, in
the order the fonts appear on the control panel. Here is
part of a typical self test:
Following the tips below will give you the best performance
when printing with the paper feeder.
❏ Load paper into the paper feeder before you turn on the
printer and send data. When the printer receives data
from the computer, it loads a single sheet automatically
and begins to print.
❏ If the printer runs out of paper during a print job, reload
the paper feeder and then press the LOAD/EJECT button
to continue printing.
❏ Press the LOAD/EJECT button if you need to eject a sheet
of loaded paper.
❏ You can switch to manual loading or to the optional push
tractor without removing the paper supply from the
paper feeder.
❏ You can adjust the loading and print positions with the
printer’s micro feed feature.
3. The self test continues until the paper in the paper feeder
runs out or you press the PAUSE button. To resume the
test, press the PAUSE button again.
4. To end the self test, press the PAUSE button to stop printing
and then press the LOAD/EJECT button to eject the paper.
5. Turn off the printer.

LQ-850+/1050+
LQ-550/1010
LQ-2550
LQ-800/1000

Printer Care
Replacing the Ink Cartridge
When the INK OUT light on the control panel flashes, the ink
in the ink cartridge is low. The printer continues printing
until the cartridge is completely empty. When it is out of ink,
the printer stops and the INK OUT light stays on. Printing will
not resume until you insert a new cartridge.
Paper Jams
To clear a paper jam follow the steps below.
1. Open the printer cover and the paper feeder cover.
It’s a good idea to keep a spare ink cartridge on hand. Use
EPSON ink cartridge S020025 to ensure proper operation and
preserve the life of the print head. Other brands of ink may
clog the print head or damage it.
2. Pull the access panel away from the rear of the printer, as
shown below. When loading continuous paper, remove
the push tractor.
Follow these steps to remove the empty cartridge:
1. Make sure the printer stops printing and both the INK OUT
and PAUSE lights stay on. Then open the printer cover.
2. Hold down the ALT button for several seconds and release
the button when the print head moves to the ink cartridge
replace position.
3. Pull the ink cartridge clamp toward you to release the
cartridge. (The clamp pushes the ink cartridge up so it is
easy to grasp.)
3. Pull the paper out gently. If the paper tears, make sure you
remove any remaining pieces.
4. If the paper is caught in the paper ejection area, gently pull
it out of the printer.
5. Push the access panel back onto the rear of the printer.
When loading continuous paper, replace the push tractor.
Close the printer cover and the paper feeder cover.
Preventing paper feed and paper jam problems
If you have frequent paper feed or paper jam problems, refer
to this checklist of corrective measures:
❏ Use a higher-quality paper, one that is not too thin or
rough. Some types of paper require manual feeding.
4. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly.
Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
❏ Fan the stack of paper and then tap it on an edge to align
it before you load it.
w
❏ Be sure that you do not load too much paper in the paper
feeder.
❏ Try turning the stack of paper over in the paper feeder.
Most packages of paper indicate the best side to print on
with an arrow on the end of the package. Make sure the
best side is loaded face down.
Warning:
The ink cartridge is self-contained to prevent leaks. However,
if ink gets on your hands, wash them thoroughly with soapy
water. If ink gets on your hands, flush them immediately with
water.
5. See “Installing the Ink Cartridge” for step-by-step
instructions on installing the new cartridge.
Note:
When you replace the cartridge, the printer will not recharge
the ink delivery system again. However, the print head may
start moving as the printer performs normal maintenance
procedures. This can take up to 40 seconds to complete.

Cleaning the Print Head
If print quality diminishes, use the printer’s built-in printhead cleaning cycle to ensure that the nozzles are delivering
ink properly. To avoid wasting ink, clean the print head only
if print quality declines.
Follow these steps:
1. Make sure the printer is turned on and the PAUSE light is
on. If the PAUSE light is not on, press the PAUSE button to
pause the printer.
2. Hold down the ALT button and press the PAUSE button for
two seconds.
The cleaning cycle takes about 40 seconds. The PAUSE light
flashes throughout the cycle and then stays on when the
cleaning cycle is finished.
3. Press the PAUSE button to resume printing.
