Question about Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer
Document stops moving and lines print over top each other.
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.
