  • Epson 1280 advice please

    I have lost the manual for my Epson 1280 printer - could someone please help me.

    I am printing on 4" roll paper. I must have missed a setting when I sent the first job to print because the paper just keeps rolling out of the printer instead of stopping after 6" like it's supposed to.

    I made it stop by turning off the printer but when I turn it back on, it just starts to roll forward again.

    Does anyone know what setting I missed to make it stop after the image is printed??

    Also, I'm using OS10.2.6 and the print dialog doesn't have the tools on it for checking ink supply etc. There is a separate printer utility installed, but the printer list is empty - anybody got any ideas??

    Thanks, Margaret

          Thank you Don, that's the page I was looking for. Chris, thanks for the link to the on-line documentation - I've bookmarked it so I can refer to it in the future.

          I think the fault for my current problems lies with Chris H. who posted a picture of his over-flowing bookshelves. That inspired me to clean up my own mess and obviously got a little too enthusiastic when chucking stuff out

              Best $200 Printer?
              by Hankster65
              Hiya all!

              The ink on my dusty old Lexmark 3200 has run out and instead of spending $70 on cartridges I've decided to spend a couple of hundred for fully filled cartridges that come with a printer attached. I've read many reviews and am more confused by the moment. What I want is THE...

              by navoff
              I've got a Canon i960 that for years produced excellent photos (so good, no one could tell the difference between them and ones printed professionally). However, now, every time I want to print something, I have to do a deep cleaning just to get an adequate image. There's usually one or two colors that...

              Problem HP 7450 Photosmart Printer.
              by Heelixx
              I've looked around the internet for a problem that i have with my HP Photosmart 7450 Printer & keep getting the same advice which really doesnt help my situation. Even the HP website FAQ's dont give any decent advice or doesnt go into detail about it for this model.
