Question about Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer

2 Answers

My printer stops printing

Hello,
I own an Epson LQ590 printer. When I print something, it is very slow and then it stops and all of the lights (paper out,Pause,Tear off bin,Font light, and Pitch light) all blink at the same time. The manuel says to turn it off and wait a few minutes. This does not correct the problem. Any ideas?
Thanks,Brian

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.

Does not print


***hi there,il be willing to help you on that. ****
the nozzles of the printer might be clogged by dried inks thats why when your printing, its feeding the paper, as if its printing but no inks on the paper. print a nozzle check to see which part or color have clogs, if there are gaps or breaks, do head cleaning untill no more gaps then try printing.
Running a Printer Check
1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Turn off the Epson Stylus NX100 Series. 3. Hold down the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.1.jpg Stop button as you press the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.2.jpg On button to turn the Epson Stylus NX100 Series back on. Hold down both buttons until the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.3.jpg On light begins to flash, then release the buttons. 1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Turn off the Epson Stylus NX100 Series. 3. Hold down the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.1.jpg Stop button as you press the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.2.jpg On button to turn the Epson Stylus NX100 Series back on.

Hold down both buttons until the nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.3.jpg On light begins to flash, then release the buttons. 4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines. nx100_tx100_ug.1.96.5.jpg 5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean and you can continue printing. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head. If your printouts are unexpectedly light, or dots or lines are missing, you may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.
You can also clean the print head by holding down the stop button on the printer for three seconds. (This only works when the red ink light is off.) Run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean.
Caution: When you don’t turn on your printer for a long time, print quality can decline, so turn it on and print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality. ***if my troubleshooting steps are helpful, pls vote for me, i will appreciate it, so that I can be a part of fixya, thanks, Godbless****

Printing too slow


hi it's normal to print slowly u can configure the printing settings to choose the printing qualtiy so if change ur printing quality to draft it will be faster but if u choose the resolution to be higher then the speed of printing will decrease and so on.

check if your LQ590 is set for manual feedor continuous feed. There is a toggle switch somewhere near the rubber rollers,there are symbols that will indicate for continuous paper printing or manual, select manual printing. Also in your print window,select printer properties, select manual printing. Yourprinter might be set up for sheet feeder or continuous paper printing. hope this helped.

EPSON SYLUS C80 indicates "printer error: paper jam"


Epson has an interactive troubleshooting guide on their support site. http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/SupportIndex.jsp From the link above, choose your model printer. You will then be brought to the main page of your printer. Then, click on the "interactive help program" link under the Troubleshooting Guide section. Through this, you will be able to find an article describing what all the indicator lights mean and how to possibly resolve the issues.
