To solve this, ensure that DIP switches 2 to 11 are set to OFF. Also make sure the printer port is set to SPP or Normal in the Computer's BIOS.
Cannot Print in Windows 98
If you cannot print in Wondows 98, make sure that the printer port is set to either SPP, Standard, or Normal in the computer's BIOS.
Prints blank even with new Cartridge
After installing a new cartridge the printer only prints blank pages, or prints a few lines and fades quickly. Typically you need to perform 2-3 head cleanings before printing anything. Also insure the orange tape is removed from the new cartridge.
When printing text files, prints 2 lines on platen before feeding next sheet
This problems arises when printing simple text files from dos where no page end or formfeed indication in the file. Set Dipswitch SW #10 ON (Canon BJ-130e mode) or use Epson LQ mode
