Epson lx350 not printing continous

Specs: Windows 7
I bought an Epson LX350 printer to print Continuous Form Paper, 5 1/2" x 9 1/2".However, when I print a receipt the printer produces two pages, one with the printed details and another extra blank page.I can not print continuously and I have to tear off every receipt before sending another one.I thought it was something to do with paper size but adjusting did not seem to make any changes.Is it that this model only supports A4 size papers?Please help .

Sounds like a problem with your POS software. have you tried contacting the manufacturer of the software about the issue?

Hi Waru, I suspect the fault relates to form length.setting, either in the program, printer or both. Or Top of Form setting.

Advise which is the length measurement?

What is happening, is the final instruction from the program is throw to top of form.

I do not know this printer, but generally you first position the (tractor feed?) paper, so the FIRST print starts in the correct position.

Then before printing, on the printer,press the button to tell the printer it is at tof.
Thereafter on completion of printing the form or forms it throws to this position, which hopefully raises enough the perforations high enough to tear off the form..

Good Luck - Keep us posted.

if you do not have documentation for the printer, see:-

On that relating to using the Control Panel there is reference to tear off point etc.

Well I am not using the printer on a POS system but just a normal computer running windows XP.However, non continuous printing is also happening when I use the Computer on Win7

Now to make it worse, my printer Epson lx350 prints perfectly when installed on any windows 7 PC.However, when installed on Windows XP , the printer chews every paper it tries to print.It took me two weeks before realising this .I kept taking the printer for check up and all guys said there was no problem with the printer.What they did not do is test it on WinXP.I actually installed the printer at my work place where the accountant used it the whole day and believe me it chewed no paper.At first I thought it was the quality of my continuous printing paper but this is not the case.I also tried its drivers for WinXP and no difference.

Have anyone ever encountered such a case??

I am now trying to connect the printer on the same OS (WinXP) but this time with a parallel/serial cable en see if it works otherwise an upgrade to windows 7 will be the next step .

I just hate this new model of dot matrix printer.I would recommend the older version Epson LX300 II.
