Question about Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer
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?
I LOST MY SETUP DISC IS THERE A WEB SITE THAT I CAN DOWNLOAD A SETUP PROGRAM THANKS SOCKSQUATCH

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.
