Epson FX-800/1000


The Epson FX-800/1000 9 pin dot matrix printers were launched in November 1986 to replace the FX-85/105 and discontinued in March 1987 when they were superseded by the FX-850/1050 respectively. They can print at up to 240 characters per second and have a choice of three typefaces - draft and two near letter quality. Each printer has two sets of DIP (Dual In-line Package) switches located on the rear panel of the printer. These switches control certain printer functions and default settings, the details of which are listed below.
