SOURCE: epson LQ -590 PRINTER PROBLEM

  1. You text page is larger than the printer page,
    margins are set wrong, or there are special
    formatting marks and/or characters at the end
    of your documents.

  2. Check default printer paper-size settings:

    START --> Printers & Faxes -> Chose printer -->
    right-click --> properties --> ....

    This sets the default settings, that are in effect every time
    an application starts up.

    Also note, that if printer settings are not listed within
    your START menu, you can find them in the Windows
    control panel. You can change what shows in the
    START menu and what doesn't by right-clicking the
    task bar.

  3. Now start your application and do the same thing under
    the file menu:

    File --> Print --> Settings ...
    File --> Printer settings ...
    File --> Page setup .... and also margins. etc...

    This sets the actual settings for this application or the
    current document. These settings over-ride the global
    default setting in item (2)
  4. To clarify, the settings in item (2) should be setup to
    reflect the way you use the printer the most often.

    The settings in item (3) reflect the actual document you
    are trying to print now.

  5. Be careful that the paper size settings (3) accurately
    reflect the paper in the machine, do not confuse
    metric sizes: A1, A2, A3, A4, A5 ....

    with English sizes: Letter, Legal,..... etc

    These do not line up exactly.

  6. Also check your document, to make sure that there
    are no extra characters at the end of your document:

    Paragraph marks, Page Brakes, Form Feeds, etc.

    Also check the paragraph settings (in Word for Windows,
    for example, to make sure that is not the cause of the
    problem.

    In word for Windows, for example, you can also go
    into tools, options and change the way your document
    is displayed, such that all formatting marks become
    visible (or click on the paragraph tool)

  7. Finally, most Windows applications offer some kind
    of print PREVIEW facility, so that you can see what
    you are going to get, before you physically print it.



I hope this solves your problem, please rate my answers.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer Paper feed Problem

Assuming that you are feeding the paper into the correct end of the printer :), it seems that the printer is defective, but

First unplug the printer from the wall, wait a few minutes,
and see if it resets. If that does not work, read on.

  1. Printer rollers (and sometimes head movements as well)
    are controlled by "Stepping Motors"

    Unlike an ordinary DC motor with two wires, that spins
    clockwise or counter clockwise depending on the voltage
    polarity,

    a stepping motor contains several pairs of wires, that
    are pulsed in a controlled sequence, causing the motor
    to spin in precise angular steps. Depending on the
    number of wire pairs (poles) and internal gears, the
    stepping motor can have a resolution as course as
    90 degrees, and as fine as 0.05 degrees per step,
    depending on the cost and applications.

    Linear stepping motors can even move an object in
    a straight line.

    The benefit of these stepping motors is that, unlike a
    linear servo motor, they do not need complex positional
    feed-back for precise control, they simply step as many
    times as you tell them to. Four steps left, two steps back
    .... etc.

  2. These stepping motors are in turn driven by semiconductor switches (transistors) which are
    ultimately controlled by a central processor within the printer.

    Depending on the printer model, and how sophisticated
    the printer's internal processor is, the paper and head
    movements can be either automatically controlled by
    SOFTWARE (firmware) within the printer itself, or by the device drivers installed in Windows.

    The more self-sufficient the printer is, of course, the less
    hassle and CPU overhead on your PC.

  3. When any of the components within this chain of command fail, the stepping motor will move incorrectly:

    a) Skip steps
    b) Get stuck
    c) Oscillate back and forth
    d) Spin backwards.

  4. The causes could be:

    a) One bad wire in the ribbon connecting the motor
    to its controller board.

    b) Bad motor driver transistor: Open or shorted.

    c) Bad data line from the printer's internal control
    processor to the driver transistor array.

    d) Bad processor chip, memory or firmware within
    the printer, e.g. a burned out register or firmware
    memory location.

    e) Defective internal power supply, causing everything
    else to malfunction.

    f) Bad paper position sensor

    d) Crashed control program, which is probably the
    only thing that is fixable:

    i) unplug the printer from the wall socket, wait a
    few minutes, and see if it resets.

  5. It is also remotely (theoretically) possible, that
    the Window drivers are corrupt but this is very unlikely.

  6. If you are fairly brave and want to take the printer apart, and have some electronics knowledge and a few basic instruments, probe the roller drive motor wires, and see what gives. Is one wire stuck consistently low or high ?

    Is one of the motor windings open or shorted ?

    Is one of the driver transistors fried ?

    This very much depends on your level of skill, and the test equipment you have to work with. If you don't have a decent oscilloscope you will not get far. Without a digital multimeter you will not get anywhere at all.
Also do not forget that printers are dirt cheap, less than the ink when it runs out, so this may not be worth your time and effort.

Call the manufacturer, scream blue murder, accuse them of setting your house on fire and giving your dog diarrhea ....

and see if they will send you a freebee.

Hope this explains it.

SOURCE: My Epson LQ-590/LQ-2090 keeps having paper jams

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.

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!

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.

1 Answer

Prints one line and stops


hello,
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 Rollers.so 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
