If your printer is not listed above, ask your Epson dealer whether
this card can be used with your printer.
Required memory
Before using the card, make sure your printer has more than 1.5
megabytes (MB) of memory. If you connect your printer to more
than one computer, you must assign at least 1.5 MB of printer
memory to the channel using the PostScript CARD. See your printer
user’s guide for more de tails.
Note:
l
l
You cannot assign the PostScript mode to more than one
channel even if your printer has more than 3.0 MB of memory.
When the memory is insufficient for your paper size, the
printing area might be clipped. Minimize the receive buffer
size and the FULL PRINT setting, or both, using SelecType or
install extra memory.
Introduction v
Printing area
If the NOTE option is selected in the PAGETYPE menu, the printing
area of A4, Letter, or Legal paper will be offset towards the left and
top of the page.
Note: Start page
When the START PAGE menu is set to ON, your printer prints
the start page every time the printer mode switches to PostScript
(for example, during auto sense mode). If you change your printer
mode often, it is recommended you set the START PAGE menu to
OFF.
vi
Introduction
Available interfaces
Unless you are using a Macintosh™, you can use any built-in or
optional interface to connect your printer to your computer.
Note for Macintosh users:
l
l
l
l
When you install this PostScript CARD in your printer, you
can connect it to your Macintosh with the optional
LocalTalk™ interface C82312*. Do not use the serial interface
for this purpose, because the Macintosh does not have a
printer driver for the serial interface.
This card returns one of the following messages on the screen:
status:initializing
initializing PS mode
no job currently processing
status:idle
status:busy
processing job
waiting for data for current job
status:waiting
status:printing
printing page
status:printing test page printing start page
Applications listed below are not supported:
LaserTalk™
SmartArt™
If some objects are clipped at the right or bottom edge, use A4,
Letter, or Legal size instead of small size. To select these sizes,
use the Larger Print Area setting in the option dialog box of
Page Setup in the Macintosh File menu.
Introduction
vii
For EPL-7000/7100 Users
Your printer always reprints jammed pages after a paper jam
error is corrected, even if JAM RECOVERY is OFF.
You may get a PAPER SIZE ERROR if you try to print on a
paper size that cannot be selected with SelecType. If this error
occurs, press RESET until the display shows RESET.
When your printer is used with two computers, the PostScript
CARD should be used with channel S. If you want to use the
card with channel P, set the MEMORY menu to S 0:l0P.
You cannot connect the EPL-7000/7100 to a Macintosh
computer.
For EPL-4000/4100/ActionLaserII users
If you are using your printer with more than one computer and you
are using an optional interface, you must use the PostScript CARD
with the optional interface.
If you are using more than one computer but not using an optional
interface, you must use the PostScript CARD with the serial
interface.
For EPL-4200/4300/8000/8100 or later printer users
To assign the printer mode to PS mode when you are using two or
more interface channels in INDIVIDUAL mode, turn the printer off
and then back on. Otherwise, an INVALID ASSIGN error may
occur.

Introduction
Chapter 1
Handling the PostScript CARD
Care and Handling
Do not drop, crush, or bend the card. Its natural curvature does
not affect operation, so do not try to straighten the card by
bending it.
Avoid touching the gold connectors along the card’s edge.
If the card becomes dirty, clean the connectors by wiping the
edge with a clean tissue. Do not use water, alcohol, or other
solvents.
Keep the card in the protective case and blue antistatic bag when
you are not using it.
Do not store the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source.
When stored, the card can withstand from -30°C to 65°C (-20°F
to 150°F) temperatures and up to 90% humidity.
Be careful when you insert and remove the card. You can
damage it by inserting it the wrong way or using too much force.
Handing the PostScript CARD
l-l
Installing the Card
Insert the card only when the printer is turned off.
Always insert it into slot A of your printer.
If the slot is horizontal, insert the card with the Epson logo on the
upper side of the card. If the slot is vertical, insert the card so the
Epson logo faces the A label. Follow the steps below to install the
card:
1. Turn off the printer.
2.
Hold the card so that the arrow on the card is aligned with the
arrow on slot A.
3. Gently slide the card into the slot until it locks in place.
4. Turn on the printer.
Once you insert the PostScript CARD, you can select it using
SelecType.
Note:
l
l
1-2
Make sure your printer has at least 1.5 MB of memory,
including an optional expanded memory board or chips. You
will get an error message if you select the PostScript CARD
when not enough memory is installed.
Do not insert the card while the printer is turned on. If an
error occurs, refer to your printer manual for instructions.
Handing the PostScript CARD
Selecting PostScript
Because your printer is set to operate in one of the resident printer
modes, you need to change the mode setting through SelecType
before you can use the PostScript option.
If you are not familiar with SelecType, see your printer manual. You
may also find it helpful to refer to the Quick Reference card (located
at the back of the manual) whenever you use SelecType.
First, find the MODE or MODE ASSIGN menu in your SelecType
map. (The menu for changing the printer mode is not identical in all
printers.) You can change the printer mode to PS from these menus.
The following two sets of steps describe how to change the printer
mode for the EPL-4000/4100, ActionLaserII, and the EPL-7000/7100
printers. See your printer manual for more details.
