Specs: Windows XP
Hi every one. i have an EPSON LQ-2180 printer that prints one page of a document that spans over two or more pages and then the lights at the front panel go off and endless beeps start. Nothing can be done as the buttons at the front panel also become inactive. Printing can only resume when the printer is turned off and then back on. What can i do? Thanks in advance for the help.

Did the printer previously work fine when connected to the computer it is now on? Is this a USB or Parallel connection printer?

Did you by chance change any BIOS settings or have the BIOS go to defaults? Check the cable for good connection. Also, move it away from other wiring.

When what you describe happens check the printer in the start menu to see how it is currently being reported. Online, offline, waiting, etc.
