Install Printer Epson LX-300 on Windows 7

Having problem installing Epson LX-300 printer on your Windows 7 Operating system? And you don’t even have the drivers for it? Yes, that’s a big problem indeed, since even Epson don’t have the support for it anymore. Although, this kind of printer STILL exist and we can’t just throw it away just because it’s not compatible with your operating system, or either, we don’t have to revert to Windows XP.



View Windows 7 Compatibility Chart

As we can notice with the link above, when we search for LX-300, it’s not there, but rather LX-300+.
But then, there is a tweak on how we can install this printer WITHOUT a driver. Just follow the steps below.

Step 1: Connect  the Printer
Step 2: Go to Control Panel then find Device and Printers

Step 6: In this section you will then choose your manufacturer, and in our case, select Epson located on the left side, then on the right side locate for Epson LX Series 1(80) series then click next

Step 7: Type your desired printer name, but then I prefer that you will name it with its model then just add your computer name (ex. Epson LX 300 – User), to avoid confusion (in my own personal experience though)

Step 8: In this section you will just have to choose whether you would like to share your printer or not, just share it.. Sharing is loving! : )

Then that’s it, you can do a test print and make it your default printer.
