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.

Processing time on the computer system is not included in the print speed. The several factors where printing is slow are mentioned below:

    Print a test page form general tab of your Epson driver
    Step9: Perform
    If printing is still slow try reducing the size of the data sent to printer

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.
