Introduct ion iii

This manual is a supplement to your printer manual. It gives you the additional information necessary to use the PostScript CARD with your printer. Keep these manuals together.

iv Introduction

Precautions

Available printers

This card can work with the page printers listed below:

EPL-7000/7100/705OC

EPL-4000/4100/4200/4300, ActionLaser

EPL-8000/8100

It does not work with these printers:

GQ-3500, GQ-5000

EPJ-200, EPI-4000

EPL-6000, ActionLaser, ActionLaser PLUS

If your printer is not listed above, ask your Epson dealer whether this card can be used with your printer.

Required memory

Before using the card, make sure your printer has more than 1.5 megabytes (MB) of memory. If you connect your printer to more than one computer, you must assign at least 1.5 MB of printer memory to the channel using the PostScript CARD. See your printer users guide for more de tails.

Note: l You cannot assign the PostScript mode to more than one

channel even if your printer has more than 3.0 MB of memory.

l When the memory is insufficient for your paper size, the printing area might be clipped. Minimize the receive buffer size and the FULL PRINT setting, or both, using SelecType or install extra memory.

Introduction v

Printing area

If the NOTE option is selected in the PAGETYPE menu, the printing area of A4, Letter, or Legal paper will be offset towards the left and top of the page.

Note: Start page When the START PAGE menu is set to ON, your printer prints the start page every time the printer mode switches to PostScript (for example, during auto sense mode). If you change your printer mode often, it is recommended you set the START PAGE menu to OFF.

vi Introduction

Available interfaces

Unless you are using a Macintosh, you can use any built-in or optional interface to connect your printer to your computer.

Note for Macintosh users: l When you install this PostScript CARD in your printer, you

can connect it to your Macintosh with the optional LocalTalk interface C82312*. Do not use the serial interface for this purpose, because the Macintosh does not have a printer driver for the serial interface.

l This card returns one of the following messages on the screen: status:initializing initializing PS mode status:idle no job currently processing status:busy processing job status:waiting waiting for data for current job status:printing printing page status:printing test page printing start page

l Applications listed below are not supported: LaserTalk SmartArt

l If some objects are clipped at the right or bottom edge, use A4, Letter, or Legal size instead of small size. To select these sizes, use the Larger Print Area setting in the option dialog box of Page Setup in the Macintosh File menu.

Introduction vii

For EPL-7000/7100 Users

Your printer always reprints jammed pages after a paper jam error is corrected, even if JAM RECOVERY is OFF.

You may get a PAPER SIZE ERROR if you try to print on a paper size that cannot be selected with SelecType. If this error occurs, press RESET until the display shows RESET.

When your printer is used with two computers, the PostScript CARD should be used with channel S. If you want to use the card with channel P, set the MEMORY menu to S 0:l0P.

You cannot connect the EPL-7000/7100 to a Macintosh computer.

For EPL-4000/4100/ActionLaserII users

If you are using your printer with more than one computer and you are using an optional interface, you must use the PostScript CARD with the optional interface.

If you are using more than one computer but not using an optional interface, you must use the PostScript CARD with the serial interface.

For EPL-4200/4300/8000/8100 or later printer users

To assign the printer mode to PS mode when you are using two or more interface channels in INDIVIDUAL mode, turn the printer off and then back on. Otherwise, an INVALID ASSIGN error may occur.

viii Introduction

Chapter 1 Handling the PostScript CARD

Care and Handling

Do not drop, crush, or bend the card. Its natural curvature does not affect operation, so do not try to straighten the card by bending it.

Avoid touching the gold connectors along the cards edge.

If the card becomes dirty, clean the connectors by wiping the edge with a clean tissue. Do not use water, alcohol, or other solvents.

Keep the card in the protective case and blue antistatic bag when you are not using it.

Do not store the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source. When stored, the card can withstand from -30C to 65C (-20F to 150F) temperatures and up to 90% humidity.

Be careful when you insert and remove the card. You can damage it by inserting it the wrong way or using too much force.

Handing the PostScript CARD l-l

Installing the Card

Insert the card only when the printer is turned off.

Always insert it into slot A of your printer.

If the slot is horizontal, insert the card with the Epson logo on the upper side of the card. If the slot is vertical, insert the card so the Epson logo faces the A label. Follow the steps below to install the card:

1. Turn off the printer.

2. Hold the card so that the arrow on the card is aligned with the arrow on slot A.

3. Gently slide the card into the slot until it locks in place.

4. Turn on the printer.

Once you insert the PostScript CARD, you can select it using SelecType.

Note: l Make sure your printer has at least 1.5 MB of memory,

including an optional expanded memory board or chips. You will get an error message if you select the PostScript CARD when not enough memory is installed.

l Do not insert the card while the printer is turned on. If an error occurs, refer to your printer manual for instructions.

1-2 Handing the PostScript CARD

Selecting PostScript

Because your printer is set to operate in one of the resident printer modes, you need to change the mode setting through SelecType before you can use the PostScript option.

If you are not familiar with SelecType, see your printer manual. You may also find it helpful to refer to the Quick Reference card (located at the back of the manual) whenever you use SelecType.

First, find the MODE or MODE ASSIGN menu in your SelecType map. (The menu for changing the printer mode is not identical in all printers.) You can change the printer mode to PS from these menus.

The following two sets of steps describe how to change the printer mode for the EPL-4000/4100, ActionLaserII, and the EPL-7000/7100 printers. See your printer manual for more details.

1-6 Handing the PostScript CARD

Removing the Card

Follow these steps if you need to remove the card:

1. Make sure the printer is turned off.

2. Remove the card by grasping it at the center and gently pulling it straight out.

Note: Never insert or remove the card while the printer is turned on.

3. Turn on the printer.

If the CH. (EPL-7000/7100) or the FEED light is flashing, press FEED; the printer then prints one page of data from the buffer.

Note: Never remove this card while the printer is on line, in SelecType mode, or while resetting. If you do, a REINSERT CARD, REMOVE CARD, or SERVICE REQ. message may appear on the display. See the section on card error messages in your printer manual.
