ENERGY STAR Compliance
As an International ENERGY STAR Partner, EPSON
has determined that this product meets the
International ENERGY STAR Program guidelines for energy
efficiency.
The International ENERGY STAR Program promotes the
voluntary development of energy-efficient computers, printers,
and other peripheral equipment.
About Making Printer Settings
To print, you will need to make some printer settings. This printer
offers four ways to make printer settings:
❏
Printer driver (software that runs or “drives” your printer)
❏
OneTouch modes (control panel shortcuts that allow you to
make several settings quickly)
❏
SelecType (control panel functions that allow you to make
even more settings than the printer driver)
❏
Remote Control Panel utility (software that emulates your
printer control panel)
If you use a Windows application, use the printer driver that came
with the printer to make settings. For details on your printer
driver, see “Accessing Online Help” in your Getting Ready! guide.
If you use a DOS application, make the print settings in the
application. For details, see your DOS application manual.
If you cannot make all the settings you need through the Windows
printer driver or DOS application, use SelecType (OneTouch
modes) or the Remote Control Panel utility.

Printer Driver
Use the printer driver to easily and conveniently make new printer
settings. Most users may never need to use anything besides their
application software and the printer driver to make printer
settings. You can access the printer driver through an application‘s
Print command or by choosing your printer in the Printers
folder/program group in your operating system. Be aware that
settings you make in your application software overide printer
driver settings. Use the driver’s online help for more information.
To access online help, see your Getting Ready guide.
OneTouch modes
Use the OneTouch modes on the printer control panel to make
printer settings when you cannot make a setting in your
application software. The OneTouch modes are the easiest way to
make several basic settings from the printer’s control panel;
however, your software application and printer driver in some
cases override these settings. See “Using the OneTouch Modes” on
page 5-20 for more information.
SelecType
Use the SelecType buttons and display on the printer control panel
to make printer settings when you cannot make a setting in your
application software. SelecType has more detailed options than the
OneTouch modes but it may take a few extra steps to make those
settings. See “Using SelecType,” Chapter 5, for more information.
Remote Control Panel utility
Use the Remote Control Panel utility when the printer is not easily
accessible and you want to make SelecType settings. This utility
allows you to make SelecType settings from your computer;
however, it only works in DOS. See “Using the Remote Control
Panel Utility,” Chapter 4, for more information.

Loading Paper
This section covers how to manually load paper to check print
quality after each page is printed and how to choose special
media. To load paper normally, see your Getting Ready guide.
To load paper in an optional lower paper tray, see page 3-3.
Note:
If the weight of your paper is not between 60 to 90 g/m2
(16 to 24 lb), decrease the number of sheets you load.
Manually loading paper
You can manually load paper in the MP Tray. Manually
loading paper can be helpful when you want to check the print
quality after each page is printed.
This loading procedure is almost the same as the procedure for
automatic paper feeding, except you load paper sheet-by-sheet
in the MP Tray, send print data to print the first page, and
press the On Line button to print each following page.

Loading an uncommon paper size
To load an uncommon, or custom, paper size from 92 × 140 mm
(3.6 × 5.5 inches) to 330.2 × 483 mm (13 × 19 inches), use the MP
Tray (as described in your Getting Ready guide) and make the
size setting according to one of the following methods:
❑
Access the printer driver, click inside the paper size box on
the paper menu, and type an original name for your paper.
When you finish adjust the Width, Height, and
Measurement Unit settings to match your custom paper,
press the Enter key and your custom paper size will be
saved.
❑
Access the Remote Control Panel utility (see Chapter 4) and
set page size to Custom.
❑
Access SelecType mode (see Chapter 5) and set page size to
CTM (custom).
Choosing Paper
Note:
Since the quality of any particular brand or type of paper may be
changed by the manufacturer at any time, EPSON cannot guarantee
the quality of any type of paper. Always test samples of paper stock
before purchasing large quantities or printing large jobs.
You can use many kinds of media including stock paper,
envelopes, labels, and overhead projector transparencies. The
printer feeds most types of media automatically from the MP
Tray. This section describes the paper feed and delivery choices
and how to select and load paper.
The type of paper you use in your printer can affect the quality
of your printed output. The smoother the paper you use, the
smoother and sharper your printing looks.

For best results, store your paper supply in its original
wrapper. Your printout can be marred by moisture absorbed in
the paper. Do not store paper in a humid or damp environment.
Below are some recommendations for selecting paper and
other print media for the printer.
Labels
Use only labels designed for laser printers or plain-paper
copiers. Use the MP Tray to print on these materials.
To prevent the adhesive from coming into contact with printer
parts, always use labels that completely cover the backing sheet
so that no gaps occur between the individual labels.
You should test the label sheet for leaking adhesive by pressing
a sheet of paper on top of a sheet of labels. If the paper sticks to
the label sheet when you lift it off, do not use the labels.
Envelopes
Load envelopes in the MP Tray with the flap edge first and the
print surface facing up. The printing quality on envelopes may
be irregular because different parts of an envelope have
different thicknesses. If the printing is too light, adjust the print
density with the printer driver, the Remote Control Panel
utility, or SelecType.
Note:
Because thickness and surface characteristics are especially important
for envelopes, test a sample for print quality and proper feeding before
you buy a large number of envelopes.

Colored paper
You can use colored paper as long as it meets the weight limits
shown in the paper specifications. Do not, however, use coated
paper (paper to which a clear or colored coating has been
added).
Transparencies
You can use overhead projector transparencies and adhesive
drafting film if they are made for use with plain-paper copiers
or laser printers. Use the MP Tray to print on these materials.

This chapter shows you how to use the control panel.
Getting acquainted with your printer’s control panel may help
you get more from your printer. For more information on the
SelecType settings available from the control panel, including
the OneTouch modes, see Chapter 5.
Appendix E shows all SelecType menu categories and options.
It can be used as a guide whenever you use SelecType.
The Control Panel
Overview
The printer control panel gives you easy control over most
common printer operations. The panel is made up of three
elements: a liquid crystal display, indicator lights, and buttons.
The display and indicator lights tell you the current status of
the printer, and you can use the buttons to select printer
settings and functions. However, software settings usually
override these settings.

The coax and twinax connectors each contain a parallel
interface. Since the printer’s built-in parallel interface remains
active, this gives you three parallel interfaces and a coax or
twinax interface. Print jobs can be sent to any connection, and
the printer automatically switches between the active ports.
The twinax interface is compatible with the following IBM
systems: AS-400, System 36, 5251 (model 12), System 34, System
38, and 5294. When equipped with an EPSON twinax interface,
the printer can be used in place of the following IBM system
printers: 4210, 5224 (models 1 and 2), 5256 (models 1, 2, and 3),
3218 (non IPDS), 4214 (model 2), 5225 (models 1, 2, 3, and 4),
and 5219 D01, D02.
The coax interface allows the printer to be connected to the
following IBM control units and mainframe systems: 3174,
3276, 4274, and 3270.

Remote Control Panel Utility Overview
The Remote Control Panel utility is software that allows you to
change printer settings, such as the print quantity, paper size,
and RITech setting.
When to use the Remote Control Panel utility
You do not normally need to use the Remote Control Panel to
change printer settings. Most software programs let you change
settings that affect the final printed output, and any settings
you make from your software override those made from the
Remote Control Panel.
However, if you are not able to change printer settings from
your software program or if you are running DOS, the Remote
Control Panel will allow you to:
❑
specify the size of paper loaded in the paper tray
❑
turn the Toner Save Mode on and off
❑
change the density setting or RITech setting
❑
change the emulation mode
❑
turn the Standby mode on and off
❑
specify the Top Offset and Left Offset
Note:
When the printer is shared by more than one user, the settings may be
changed by other users. Even if the Remote Control Panel window
shows your desired setting, always click the Send button.

Page Protect
Use this list to make use of the Page Protect function. This
allows you to allocate additional printer memory for printing
data, as opposed to receiving it. You may need to use Page
Protect if you are printing a highly complex page. If a Print
Overrun error occurs, change the setting to ON and reprint
your data. This reduces the amount of memory reserved for
receiving 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 if set to Auto. 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 erased.
Resolution
Selects the resolution you want to use for printing. The
available settings are 600 dpi (default) and 300 dpi.
RITech
Allows you to adjust the RITech (Resolution Improvement
Technology) setting or turn it off. See “Optimizing Print
Quality” on page 7-27 for more information about RITech.
Ordinarily, the RITech setting should not have to be changed.
The RITech options are Light, Medium, Dark, and Off.
Density
Adjusts the print density to make the printout darker or lighter.
Click the appropriate arrow key to darken or lighten the output.

Auto Continue
Permits the printer to automatically recover from a Print Overrun,
Mem Overflow, or Paper Set error. The printer continues printing
within a few seconds after one of these problems occurs.
When Auto Continue is off, you must press the button on the
control panel to resume printing. In most cases, leave Auto
Continue off so you can tell when an error occurs and make
the necessary corrections. You might want to set Auto
Continue on when printing long jobs or when you are away
from the printer for long periods.
Toner Save Mode
Turns the Toner Save mode on. When turned on, the printer
saves toner by substituting a gray shade for the black inside of
characters. The characters are outlined in full black on the right
and lower edges.
Image Optimum
Reduces the amount of graphics data when the data reaches the
memory limit, allowing complex documents to be printed.
When this mode is on, graphics quality is reduced. The options
are Off, On, and Auto. On and Auto are the same.
Paper Type
Allows you to use various types of paper. Thin W is useful for
the regular size plain paper under 75g/m2. Thick N is useful for
irregular size plain paper and envelopes that are less than
257mm wide. Trnsprnc is useful for transparencies. Paper Type
usually works best if set to Normal.

the page length setting automatically returns to the default
setting for each paper size.
AutoCR
Use the automatic carriage return option to perform a
carriage-return line-feed (CR-LF) operation whenever the print
position exceeds the right margin. If Auto CR is Off, the printer
does not print characters beyond the right margin, and it does
not perform a linewrap until it receives a CR. Most software
programs take care of this function.
AutoLF
If you set AutoLF to Off, the printer does not send an
automatic line feed (LF) command with each carriage return
(CR). When you set AutoLF to On, the printer adds a line feed
to each carriage return it receives. If your text lines overprint
each other, set AutoLF to On.
BitImage
With BitImage set to Dark or Light, your printer can correctly
emulate the graphics densities set with the printer commands.
If you select Dark, the bit image density is high. If you select
Light, the bit image density is low.
With BitImage set to BarCode, your printer converts bit
images to bar codes by automatically filling in any vertical
gaps between dots. This produces unbroken vertical lines that
can be read by a bar code reader. BarCode is not available in
I239X mode.
This mode reduces the size of the image being printed and may
cause some distortion when printing bit-image graphics.

Top Offset
Allows you to adjust the vertical printing position on the page.
The setting is in millimeters. You can move the printing
position by approximately 0.5 mm increments from the top
edge (the parameters are from -9 to 99).
Left Offset
Allows you to adjust the horizontal printing position on the
page. The setting is in millimeters. You can move the printing
position by approximately 0.5 mm increments from the left
edge (the parameters are from -9 to 99).
Standby
Sets the Standby mode to Enable or Disable. When Standby is
enabled, the printer goes into a sleep mode if it is not used for
30 minutes. The printer begins warming up as soon as you send
data; it warms up and is ready to print in about 60 seconds.
When Standby is disabled, the printer stays warmed up and
ready to print.
Timeout
Sets the length of time the printer waits before looking for the
next print job. If the printer is online and receives no new data
for the number of seconds specified, the printer automatically
switches to the next channel that receives data.
Paper Size Ignore
Selects whether a paper size error is ignored when it occurs.
Turning this item on causes the printer to print even if the
image size exceeds the printable area for the specified size of
paper. This may cause smudges, because of toner that is not
transferred onto the paper properly. When this item is off, the
printer stops printing if a paper size error occurs.

Panel utility.
❑
Application programs may send commands to the printer
that override SelecType settings. If you are not getting the
results you expect, check your application software settings.
❑
To see the current SelecType settings, print a status sheet.
❑
A map of all available SelecType menus is included in

Back Shift
Adjusts the printing position on the back side when printing on

you expected. This item is available only when the Duplex Unit
is installed.
Size Ignore
Selects whether a paper size error is ignored. Turning this item
on causes the printer to print even if the image size exceeds the
printable area for the specified size of paper. This may cause
smudges because of toner that is not transferred onto the paper
properly. When this item is off, the printer stops printing if a
paper size error occurs.
Auto Cont
Permits the printer to automatically continue printing after a
certain period of time when one of the following errors occurs:
Paper Set, Print Overrun and Mem Overflow. When this option
is off, you must press the Continue button to resume printing.
Page Protect
Allocates additional printer memory for printing data, as
opposed to receiving it. You may need to use Page Protect if
you are printing a highly complex page. If a Print Overrun
error occurs, change the setting to ON and reprint your data.
This reduces the amount of memory reserved for receiving 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 if set to Auto. 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 erased.

When this mode is on, graphics quality is reduced.
Paper Type
Allows you to use various types of paper. Thin is useful for the
regular size plain paper under 75g/m2. Thick is useful for
irregular size plain paper over 75g/m2 and envelopes that are
less than 257mm wide. Trnsprnc is useful for transparencies.
Paper Type usually works best if set to Normal.

Interface
Specifies whether the printer can receive data through all the

Time Out
Sets the length of time the printer waits when it is on line and
no new data is received. When this time is up, the printer
searches for new print data on other channels.
Standby
Saves power by reducing the power to the fixing heater if the
printer receives no data for 60 minutes. In this mode, the
printer begins warming up as soon as you press send print
data; it then warms up and is ready to print in about 70
seconds.

Using Other Emulation Modes
Your printer is designed to work best in its LJ4 emulation
mode. If you want to use an emulation other than LJ4, you can
select ESC/P 2, FX, I239X, or GL/2 emulation mode.
Match the emulation mode in the Emulation Menu with
drivers or print data already formatted for EPSON LQ or FX
series printers, or IBM printers. The available emulation modes
are LJ4 (default), GL2, I239X, ESC/P 2, and FX.
The printer’s intelligent emulation switching (IES) feature
automatically switches between emulation modes, depending
on the received data. To enable intelligent emulation switching,
select Auto on the Emulation Menu using the printer driver
[confirm], the Remote Control Panel utility, or the SelecType
mode.
Changing emulation modes
To change the printer emulation mode, follow these steps.
1. Press Menu to enter SelecType.
2. Press Menu several times until EMULATION MENU appears
on the display.
3. Press Item to select the interface you want to configure.
4. Press Value to select the emulation mode. When your
desired emulation appears, press Enter. An asterisk (*)
appears at the right of the display.
If you need to make more SelecType changes, continue to read
the following section. If not, press On Line. The printer goes
back to on line status, as indicated by the On Line light.

ESC/P 2 or FX Mode
This section lists the ESCP2 menu and FX menu options. Unless
specifically mentioned, the same items are available for either
mode.
Font
The Font option selects a font by typeface.
The factory default font is Courier. After selecting the desired
font, you can also adjust the character spacing and size of the
font with the Pitch and Condensed options described below.
Pitch
You can select a character pitch of 10, 12, or 15 characters per
inch (cpi), or choose proportional spacing.
Condensed
Use this option to change the character spacing. Condensed
printing is useful for spreadsheets and other applications that
need to fit a large amount of information on each line.
However, 15-cpi characters cannot be condensed.
T.Margin
Use this option to specify the distance from the top of the sheet
to the baseline of the first printable line. This is measured in
0.05 inch increments.
Text
Use this option to set the page length in lines. The unit of
measure for this option is a 1/6 inch line.
If you change the Orientation, Page Size, or T.Margin settings,
the page length setting automatically returns to the default
setting for each paper size.

CG Table
Use the character generator table option to select the graphics
character table, or the italics table. The graphics table contains
graphic characters for printing lines, corners, shaded areas,
international characters, Greek characters, and mathematical
symbols. Selecting the italics table defines the upper half of the
character table as italic characters.
Country
Use this option to select one of the fifteen international symbol
sets. See “Symbol Sets” in the Appendix for samples of the
characters in each country’s symbol set.
AutoCR
Use the automatic carriage return option to perform a
carriage-return line-feed (CR-LF) operation whenever the print
position exceeds the right margin. If Auto CR is Off, the printer
does not print characters beyond the right margin, and it does
not perform a linewrap until it receives a CR. Most software
programs take care of this function.
AutoLF
When you set AutoLF to Off, the printer does not send an
automatic line feed (LF) command with each carriage return
(CR). When you set AutoLF to On, the printer adds a line feed
to each carriage return it receives. If your text lines overprint
each other, set AutoLF to On.
Bit Image
With Bit Image set to Dark or Light, your printer can correctly
emulate the graphics densities set with the printer commands.
When you select Dark, the bit image density is high. When you
select Light, the bit image density is low.

The BarCode setting converts bit images to bar codes by
automatically filling in any vertical gaps between dots. This
produces unbroken vertical lines that can be read by a bar code
reader. BarCode is not available in I239X mode.
This mode reduces the size of the image being printed and may
cause some distortion when printing bit-image graphics.
ZeroChar
This option determines whether the printer prints a slashed
zero (0) or an unslashed zero (0). This feature is useful for
clearly distinguishing between an uppercase letter O and zero
when printing documents such as program lists.

Note:
Because the toner on the paper inside the printer may not have
been fixed on the page, toner may come off on your hands when
you remove the paper. If you spill toner on your clothing, rinse it
off with cold water. Using hot water may leave a permanent stain.
3. Reinstall the Imaging Cartridge. Then close the printer cover.
4. After a paper jam, the jammed page’s print data is
automatically reprinted.
Preventing paper feed and paper jam problems
If you have frequent paper feed or paper jam problems, use
this checklist of corrective measures:
❑
Use a higher-quality paper, one that is not too thin or
rough.
❑
Fan the stack of paper and then tap its edges to align it
before you load it.
❑
Be sure that you do not load too much paper in the tray.
❑
Be sure to adjust the paper guides so that the paper can
slide in and out freely.
❑
Never let more than 500 sheets accumulate in the output
tray on top of the printer.
❑
Try turning over the stack of paper in the tray. Most
packages of paper indicate the best side with an arrow on
the end of the package. Make sure the best side is loaded
face up.

Replacing the Imaging Cartridge
The Imaging Cartridge prints up to 10,000 pages depending
upon the complexity of your print jobs.
If your printed images become faint, enter the SelecType Setup
menu to use the Toner function to find out approximately how
much toner remains in the imaging cartridge.
Simply count the asterisks between the E (empty) and the F
(full) on the display. Each asterisk represents about 25% of the
total toner capacity. If you see only one asterisk on the display
indicating that there is less than 25% toner left, you should get
ready to replace the Imaging Cartridge.
When replacing a cartridge, be sure to use the S051035 Imaging
Cartridge. Even if you have a cartridge other than S051035, do
not use it; order the S051035 cartridge that is specially designed
for your high-quality 600 dpi printer.

Optimizing Print Quality
Adjusting RITech
Resolution Improvement Technology (RITech) is EPSON’s new
printer technology that improves the appearance of printed
lines, text, and graphics.
The RITech setting
The factory setting for RITech gives the best quality text and
graphics for nearly all purposes. You may not need to set or
adjust anything. Occasionally, however, adjusting the RITech
setting may further improve the print quality. For example, you
may want to change the setting after you replace an imaging
cartridge or if you notice that your printing is not as smooth
and crisp as it should be. Before adjusting the RITech setting,
print a status sheet for a RITech test pattern to help you in
determining which setting is best for you.
Note:
Before printing a status sheet, turn the Toner Save Mode off with the
Windows driver, the Remote Control Panel, or the SelecType mode.
The RITech test pattern is not printed when the Toner Save Mode is
on.

If the test pattern seems too heavy, change the setting to Light
as described below; if it seems too light, change the setting to
Dark; if you are printing gray shading or screen patterns,
change the setting to Off.
To change the RITech setting, follow these steps:
Using the printer driver:
Changing the RITech setting on the Printer SelecType menu in
the printer driver.
Using the Remote Control Panel utility:
Bring up the Remote Control Panel utility by typing EPRCPO
at the DOS prompt; select the appropriate emulation from the
main Remote Control Panel window; click the Printer Setup
button; then change the RITech setting.
Using SelecType:
For information on using SelecType, see Chapter 5.
If the pattern still needs to be improved, you may have to
change the print density setting. For a darker RITech setting,
make the print density lighter and vice versa. See the next
section for more information.
Adjusting print density
Do not change the print density unless it is necessary.
Changing the print density affects all text and graphics, so
check the new setting by printing several pages with various
kinds of text and graphics.
If your test pages are too light or too dark, adjust the print
density by using the printer driver, the Remote Control Panel
utility, or the SelecType mode.

nStrobe/HostClk
Compatibility mode: Latch pulse used to read in print data. When low,
DATA is valid.
negotiation phase: Latch pulse used to read in extensibility request values.
Nibble mode: Always high.
ECP mode: Used to transfer data and addresses from the host to the
printer with handshaking via PeriphAck (Busy).
DATA1 to DATA8 (bidirectional, but may always be an input if
ECP or EPP mode is not supported)
Compatibility mode: Forward channel data.
negotiation phase: Extensibility request value.
Nibble mode: Not used.
ECP mode: Bi-directional data.
nACK/PtrClk/PeriphClk
All modes: DATA8 is the MSB, DATA1 is the LSB.
Compatibility mode: Acknowledgment low pulse in order to indicate that
data was transferred from the host.
negotiation phase: Low signal indicates IEEE 1284 is supported; set to
high afterwards to indicate that the Xflag and “data available” flag are
valid.
reverse data transfer phase: In nibble mode, a low signal indicates that the
nibble data is valid.
reverse idle phase: When switched from low to high, generates an
interrupt that notifies the host that there is data available.
ECP mode: Used to transfer data from the printer to the host with
handshaking via HostAck (nAutoFd).

Busy/PtrBusy/PeriphClk
Compatibility mode: High signal indicates that the printer is not ready to
receive data.
negotiation phase: Reflects the BUSY status of the forward channel.
reverse data transfer phase: In nibble mode, this signal serves as nibble
data bit 3 and then 7.
reverse idle phase: Reflects the BUSY status of the forward channel.
ECP mode: Used for forward direction flow control. In reverse direction,
this signal is used as a ninth data bit that indicates whether the data
signals indicates a command or data.
PError/AckDataReq/nAckReverse
Compatibility mode: High signal indicates that a feed jam occurred in the
paper supply section, or that there is no paper in the paper tray.
negotiation phase: High signal indicates whether or not IEEE 1284 is
supported or not. Afterwards, this signal conforms with nDataAvail
(nFault).
reverse data transfer phase: In nibble mode, this signal serves as nibble
data bit 2 and then 6.
reverse idle phase: High until the host requests a data transfer.
Afterwards, this signal conforms with nDataAvail (nFault).
ECP mode: Low signal authorizes nReverseRequest. The host looks at this
signal in order to determine whether or not it has permission to drive the
data signals.
Select/Xflag
Compatibility mode: Always high.
negotiation phase: Xflag indicates the extensibility flag. Used to respond
to the extensibility request value sent from the host.
reverse data transfer phase: In nibble mode, this signal serves as nibble

Compatibility mode: Not used.
negotiation phase: In order to request 1284 mode, this signal is set low and
IEEE 1284 Active (nSelectln) is set high. Afterwards, this signal is set high
when PtrClk (nAck) is set low.
reverse data transfer phase: In nibble mode, setting this signal low
indicates to the printer that the host is ready to receive data. When this
signal is subsequently set high, it indicates that the host received the data.
reverse idle phase: This signal is set high in response to a PtrClk (nAck)
low pulse in order to return to the reverse data phase. If this signal is set
high at the same time that IEEE 1284 Active (nSelectln) is set low the IEEE
1284 idle phase is aborted and the interface returns to compatibility mode.
ECP mode: Used for reverse direction flow control. Also used for
handshaking via PeriphClk (nAck).

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:
Normally, your software handles fonts and symbols, so you probably never need
to adjust the printer’s settings. 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.
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.

Your printer has the ability to emulate the following printers depending
on the printer emulation mode:
LJ-4
Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 4 (PCL5e)
ESC/P 2
EPSON LQ-570 (24-pin)
FX
EPSON FX-870/1170, or LX-100 (9-pin)
GL/2
Hewlett-Packard GL/2 graphics language
In addition, the following printer control languages are supported:
PJL
Printer Job Language
EJL
EPSON Job Control Language
This appendix lists the printer commands for these modes. Most of the
commands closely emulate the original printer or the control language;
however, some have operational differences because the printers use
different technologies. Additional information is provided in the
descriptions of control commands with these differences.
For more information on emulation modes, refer to the following sections:

Read this section if you would like to know more about fonts
and see samples of the installed fonts.
To select a font, use your application program.
Font problems are uncommon but some may occur, such as:
❑
The printer substitutes a font other than the one you
selected with your software.
❑
The printed page does not exactly match what is on screen.
These kinds of problems usually occur if you use an emulation
other than LJ4 or when you are trying to print fonts that are not
installed in the printer. If you have font problems, read “Printer
and Screen Fonts” below to find out how to fix them.
Printer and Screen Fonts
Fonts are installed on both the printer and the computer. The
printer fonts, which reside in printer memory, are used by
the printer to print text. Screen fonts, which are stored in
your computer, are used to display text on screen to
represent the fonts that will be printed.
Two separate sets of fonts are needed because the monitor
and printer have different requirements for producing fonts.
The monitor normally uses bitmap fonts that are specially
designed for the screen’s resolution. A bitmap is a dot-by-dot
representation of an image or character. The printer, however,
uses an outline font that is created from a mathematical
formula that describes the outline of each character. Using
outline fonts allows the printer to render any character in the
requested size.

Note:
The distinction between printer and screen fonts is not as important
when you are using TrueType fonts, which are included with
Windows. TrueType is an outline font format that can be used by
both the printer and the screen.
Available Fonts
The following table lists the fonts that are installed on your
printer. The names of all the fonts appear in your software’s
font list if you are using the driver provided with the printer.
(If you are using a different driver, all of these fonts may not be
available.)
The fonts provided with the printer are shown in the following

Adding More 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
reinitialize it. If you plan on downloading many fonts, make
sure your printer has sufficient memory.
Downloading fonts
Most font packages make it easy to install 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.
If you’re running Windows, you can also install fonts by
clicking on the Fonts icon in the Control Panel. Once installed,
the fonts are available in all your Windows applications.
Selecting Fonts
Whenever possible select fonts from the font list in your
software 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 with the Remote
Control Panel utility. For instructions, see Chapter 5.
Note:
Selecting a font using the Remote Control Panel utility is not
recommended. Selecting fonts from your software program is easier,
and any font selection you make from your software overrides the
selection you make from the Remote Control Panel.
