The Epson LX-400 9 pin dot matrix printer was introduced to replace the LX-800. Although it had an identical specification to the LX-800 it had been reduced in price and was now coloured in Epson's new grey livery. The printer has two sets of DIP (Dual
In-line Package) switches located on the rear panel of the printer. These switches control certain printer functions and default settings, the details of which are listed below.
