Welcome!
Your EPSON Stylus® Photo 700 is the ideal printer for optimum photo-quality
printing—print any image from your favorite photos to letters and everyday
documents.
Everything You Need for Photo-Quality
Prints
The EPSON Stylus Photo 700 CD-ROM includes all the software you need for
photo-quality output: your printer software and EPSON Digital PhotoLab™.
What Is Your Printer Software?
To print, you need some printer software (also known as a printer driver) to tell the
printer how to print. This software is what you use to select settings that control the
look of your documents. A step-by-step guide to printing starts on page 19 for
Windows® and on page 23 for Macintosh®.
What Is EPSON Digital PhotoLab?
To help you get the most out of your printer, EPSON Digital
PhotoLab includes award-winning photo-editing, photoorganizing, and photo-layout software. This creative software
collection is described in more detail on page 15.

Printer Setup
Setting up your printer is easy. Just follow the simple steps on the following pages.
Before you set up your printer, make sure your system meets the requirements
listed in the Introduction of your User’s Guide.
1 Unpack the Printer
Remove any packing material from the printer. See the Notice Sheet in the box for
details. Save all the packaging so you can use
it if you need to transport the printer later.
You need the following items to
set up your printer:
■
paper support
Your printer and paper support
■
Ink cartridges (black and color)
■
CD-ROM with your printer
software and EPSON Digital
PhotoLab
■
Printer cable (not included)
color ink

this guide)
Note:
To connect to a PC, you’ll need a shielded, twisted-pair parallel printer
cable (6 to 10 feet long). To connect to a Macintosh, you’ll need an
Apple® System Peripheral-8 cable (Belkin brand recommended).
Place the printer flat on a stable desk near a grounded outlet. Leave plenty of room
in back for the cables and enough room in front for opening the output tray.
Do NOT put the printer:
2
■
In an area with high temperature or humidity
■
In direct sunlight or dusty conditions
■
Near sources of heat or electromagnetic interference, such as loudspeakers
or cordless telephone base units.

black and color ink out lights come on, and the ink cartridge holders move
left to the installation position.
Caution:
Always use the power button to turn the printer on or off. Never use
an external switch—such as a power strip—to turn off the printer.
5. Lift the two ink cartridge clamps.
6. Remove the ink cartridges from their foil packages. Then remove only the
yellow part of the tape seal on the top of each cartridge. Do not remove the
white part.
Caution:
You must remove the yellow tape seal from the top of the cartridge or
you will permanently damage it. It’s OK if the tape does not tear off
exactly along the dotted line. Do not try to remove the clear seal from
the bottom.

7. Insert the ink cartridges into their holders. Be sure the labels are face up and
the arrows point toward the back of the printer. The black ink cartridge goes on
the left and the color ink cartridge goes on the right.
8. Push down the clamps until they lock in place.
9. Press the
cleaning button and close the printer cover.
The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system.
Charging can take two to four minutes. During this time, the power light
flashes, and the printer makes various sounds. Don’t turn off the printer or
interrupt the charging process or you’ll use more ink than necessary. Charging
is complete when the power light stops flashing and stays on.
Caution:
Never turn off the printer when the power light is flashing. But if the
light is still flashing after five minutes and the printer isn’t moving or
making noise, you may turn off the printer.
4 Connect the Printer to Your Computer
Connecting to a PC
1. Turn off the printer and your computer.
2. Connect the cable to the printer’s
parallel interface; then squeeze the
wire clips together to lock them in
place. (If your cable has a ground
wire, connect it now.)
3. Connect the other end of the cable to
your computer’s parallel port and
secure it as necessary.
Note:
The printer is automatically assigned to parallel port LPT1; if you want to
use a different port, see your Windows documentation for instructions.

Your EPSON Stylus Photo 700 CD-ROM includes printer software (also called a
printer driver) and EPSON Digital PhotoLab for both Windows and Macintosh. You
must install the printer software for the printer to work correctly.
Note:
If you don’t have a CD-ROM drive, you can use another computer
with a CD-ROM drive to make printer driver diskettes. See page 29 for
instructions. You can also order the printer driver software on diskettes
(see the inside back cover for instructions) or download it from
http://www.epson.com.

If you installed the ink cartridges and the printer started making noise . . .
The first time you install ink cartridges, the printer must charge its state-of-the-art
ink delivery system. Charging can take two to four minutes. Please wait until
charging is finished before you turn off the printer. If you turn off the printer while
it is charging, it will begin charging the system again and use up more ink than
necessary.
