Solution to the Epson LX-300+ printer is printing symbols

This post will help you find a solution for the Epson LX-300+ printer when it is printing symbols.

The Epson LX-300+ printer was created to print invoices, receipts, inventories and some listings. This printer is one of the most sold printers on the market and ranks among the best- selling impact printer, it has nine points, a serial and USB port. It also compatible with Windows 98/2000 / XP / Me and NT 4.0 systems and uses the tape for Printer LX-810/300/300 + FX-870/880.

At some point, this printer will start acting up and print some random symbols instead of the work needed. For example, you send a printing request from the program you are using or just on your operating system and the document appears with only symbols. If you are working on a really important project this can be a bit upsetting. That is why we have come up with this post to resolve this matter, just correctly follow the instructions given below, and if you have any question you can contact us by leaving a comment in the comments section below this post.

Solution to change the data cable

You can change the data cable, the most logical reason of this problem is that the printer is not getting the corresponding information, it is recommended to change the USB cable if using USB connection or change the bidirectional parallel cable.

It is possible that this issue is creating a conflict and the documentation or the data sent to the printer is not properly arriving. Before buying another cable try with an extra cable you have at home, or that you can borrow from someone else, avoid spending your money before being sure of what is causing this problem.

Solution to change the data cable port

As we stated before the reason why this problem is happening is because the printer is not receiving the information correctly; this is including the fact that the printer cannot be well connected or is connected to a port that is not resistant enough to send the correct info to the printer, please test different ports until you can figure out which one is the right port.

Uninstall and install the drivers again

If you have tried the possible solutions mentioned above, the next step is to uninstall the driver of the printer and download it and install it again, we recommend the unzip installation.

Follow the instructions given the previous link, if you have any issue please contact us by leaving a comment.

Verify that the print queue is on EMF

The print queue has to be on EMF and not on RAW, to change the setup you have to go to printers in the Control Panel or in the Start menu and after that in printing devices.

When you are in printers what you have to do is to right click until you get to printer properties, when you get there you have to look in the top menu where it says details and then in setups, after that go to where it says printing queue, if it is on RAW change it to EMF.

Check the paper sensor

Check if the paper sensor that indicates when the printer takes the paper correctly and it is not pressing down, you can find it under the black plastic cylinder, located in the middle of the printer.

In case it is pressing down without having pages this could be the problem, it could be that the printer is taking the pages in the wrong moment and it causes the error.

Cancel the printing and try to print again

After seeing that the printer is printing symbols along the page, go to the printer and cancel the document to be printed, better do it with the left click and then cancel, after that turn off the printer and unplug it too, leave the printer to rest for a moment and then plug it and try to print again.

Restart the PC and try again

When your printer is having this problem turn off the printer and restart the PC, when the PC is on again try to print one more time, in case the problem is still there contact the Epson client support for this printer.
