INSTALLATION. Installation was very simple
using just the posters: unpack, remove packing tape and restrainers,
connect cable, pug-in power adapter, insert print cartridges, load paper,
turn on the computer, insert the CD and install the software when prompted
by Windows when it detects the printer. I had no problems when installing
the printer to use a parallel printer interface. When I first installed
the USB interface the printer would quit after printing a page with a Windows
98 error stating that printer was not ready. It turns-out that
the printer's USB driver is not directly compatible with the VIA MVP chip
set on the Epox Super7 motherboard in my test machine, specifically the VT82C586B
chip. Fortunately, VIA had
a fix for the problem called the USB Filter Driver. Once I downloaded
and installed the driver the printer USB'd just fine.
Cartridge installation is really quite simple: take a cartridge
out its box, remove the tape over the print head, lift the cover over the
printer assembly (the head assembly then moves to the center of the printer
where it is easy to get at), lift the blue lever on top appropriate cartridge
bay, lower the cartridge into the bay, and secure it by snapping the lever
in place--a no brainer and no mess. Putting paper in the printer is
even simpler--no fidgeting is required to fill the well-designed, 100-sheet
