EPSON LX 300 Printer FONT Selection Not Working Repaired
Customer visited my workshop with LX 300 Printer complaining that he is not able to change the FONT through control panel.
I have powered on the printer and tried to change the font with the switch but it is not working.
In this printer process is like these – first power ON the printer then you have to press paper out /pause button for 3 second then you will get the beep sound from the printer then you have to press the FONT button to get the required FONT.
(Caution: This type of printers having multiple internal setting option by using these combination Keys you can customize paper size, width, height adjustment and so on. So please refer the user Manual before the process. Remember each printer model having different combination Keys so this setting is not applicable to any other Printer manufacturer and printer Model.)
Now for this problem my first suspect is FONT Switch itself. So I have removed top cover as follows…
I have desoldered this micro switch for testing, while testing with multimeter I found this switch is not working properly hence I have washed this switch by isopropyl alcohol and tested again this time it gives me positive result .
Hence by giving power to the printer I have followed the process as said above for testing the FONT switch it works perfectly and now I am able to change the FONTS as per my requirement.
