    exactly, you must reinstall your driver, because you must know where the problem is.
    you have: one computer, one printer and one cable. with such a problem describe upper, you must proceed by eliminate one by one.
    when you reinstall your driver: you eliminate the cable and many potentially problems that may came from computer.
    if reinstall works fine you may focus on your printer, just may defective one.
    also you may have a virus computer or something like this.

    are to many solutions for you. to many causes. you must eliminate one by one.

    tips: if your reinstall driver work fine, it may be a defective printer. solution: must buy a new one.

When printing continuous Quicken checks with the Epson LQ-590, the first check prints perfectly but the second check prints about 2 lines lower than the first check, then the third check prints 2 lines...

It can be the margins set within the printer defaults or the margins set by Quicken. In your print preview within Quicken you should be able to see where the margins are set and adjust accordingly. Otherwise, you may need to go to your Epson's print queue and adjust the properties directly on the printer. A nice way to check it is to see if you can print some test checks to plain paper and adjust as you see fit!

My Epson LQ-590/LQ-2090 keeps having paper jams located just beyond the tractor feed.. help

When a paper jam occurs during printing for some reason, the printer beeps, displaying the message <PAPER JAM> in the display. When a paper jam occurs, remove the jammed paper using the following procedure, and then resume the job. If the message that indicates the paper jam does not disappear even after removing the jammed paper following the procedure, there is a possibility that torn pieces of paper are still left inside the printer. Inspect each part of the printer again, and completely remove all pieces of jammed paper.

Make sure the option for bidirectional printing is set correctly.

Try it both ways

Make sure you are not printing too far to the left or the right - the print head can hit the end of its run and lose its place.

When printing document, half prints.

You didn't mention which paper feed you are using but I would guess tractor-feed Z-fold? If so, you may have a damaged sprocket drive.  
If not, you need to remove the platen and check for paper scraps in the paper path and if you ever use the printer with labels, you may have some residue from the adhesive impeding paper movement.
Also check that you do not have the printhead positioned too close to the paper as this can cause drag that will cause paper to slip.
These printers are just about bullet-proof with very little maintenance.

My printer stops printing

I don't know how many hours your Epson has behind it but several printers in this series have some power supply problems relating to service hours and the decay of certain capacitors in the supply. Finding ones that need replacement requires the availability of a capacitance meter with DF (Dissipation Factor) measurement capabilities. Sometimes, a failed electrolytic will deposit some chemicals on the board around its base.

Screwy Print

could be a driver issue...
try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver
also make sure that the paper size that you are printing is correctly set on the driver..

you can either download the epson driver from or add the resident driver built in to your computer (if you are using xp)

Prints one line and stops

Every printer has inside Rollers that help the transportation of the paper during printing.
When the Rollers are faulty then the paper finds it difficult to move successfully during printing.

Also there is a motor that spins to rotate the i think any of these may be faulty.

Try and get a printer specialist to check it for you or you can come live chat with me and i will direct you..

Good luck
