For United States Users
This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio or television reception. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio and television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna
- Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/ TV technician for help.
The connection of a non-shielded equipment interface cable to this equipment will invalidate the FCC Certification of this device and may cause interference levels which exceed the limits established by the FCC for this equipment. It is the responsibility of the user to obtain and use a shielded equipment interface cable with this device. If this
equipment has more than one interface connector, do not leave cables connected to unused interfaces.
Tips for printing on single sheets
There are a few things you should know about printing on single sheets as opposed to continuous paper. When you print on single sheets, you may notice that your printer prints the first page of your file correctly but then prints too low on the next page, or that it prints the last few lines from one page onto the next.
These differences in print position are easy to adjust; you can simply change some of the settings in your application program as described below to get the right results.
Connecting the Printer to Your Computer
If the self test printed correctly, you are ready to connect your printer to the computer. Use a shielded twisted-pair parallel cable to connect your computer to your printer’s built-in parallel interface.
Connect the parallel interface cable as described below:
- Make sure both the printer and computer are turned off; then plug the cable connector securely into the printer. Squeeze the wire clips together until they lock in place on either side of the connector.
- Plug the other end of the cable into the computer. (If there is a ground wire at the computer-end of the cable, attach it to the ground connector at the back of the computer.)
Using Continuous Paper
You can load continuous paper through either the front, rear, or bottom paper slot, depending upon the position of the tractor unit and the placement of your paper supply.
Your printer can handle continuous paper up to 254 mm (10.0 inches) wide on the LQ-870 and up to 406 mm (16.0 inches) wide on the LQ-1170.
To print on continuous paper, you can install the tractor unit in one of the following positions- front, rear, or pull. Be sure you set the paper-release lever correctly before you print. See Setting the paper-release lever at the beginning of this chapter for a description of each position.
