EPSON Singapore Statement
on Year 2000 Issue

Introduction

This document addresses the Year 2000 compliance issues of EPSON printers, scanners, digital cameras, multimedia projectors, personal computers and notebooks.

Explanation of "Year 2000 Problem"

Year 2000 problem" (or "Millenium problem") is the collective term for the computer malfunctions expected to occur when the calendar flips from 1999 to 2000.

Currently most computer systems and programs handle dates in YY/MM/DD format, with YY being the last two digits of the calendar year. Thus computers treat 1950 as 50, 1997 as 97, and so on. Problems can arise when hardware and software which use a two-digit format roll from 1999 to 1900. As a result they may fail completely, malfunction or cause data to be corrupted.
