N. If you cannot print a test page, please check the following - and then print a test page after each possible solution (see Printing a Test Page, below, on how to do that) ...

- Make sure your printer is turned on, with the paper loaded correctly, and all cables are connected securely.

- In the case of a serial connection, make sure you are using a Null Modem cable.

- In the case of a parallel connection, make sure you are using an IEEE certified parallel cable.

- Is the port you are connecting to correct? (COMx for a serial printer, LPTx for a parallel printer). To check/change the port, right click on the printer and select Properties from the pop-up menu. Click on the Ports tab. In most cases, you should have COM1 selected for a serial printer, or LPT1 selected for a parallel printer. If the wrong port is selected, just select the correct port and click the [Apply] button.

- In the case of a serial connection, are the communications conditions set correctly in the printer properties? To see the driver settings, right click on the printer and select Properties from the pop-up menu. Click on the Ports tab and then click on the [Configure Port] button. Check the printer manual for the communications settings (or port settings) and compare them against what is set for the driver.

- If none of the above resolve the problem, check the printer manual, or contact Epson for additional assistance in connecting your printer correctly. Do not contact Corporate Consultants at this stage as this is not a problem with the program.

Printing a Test Page
