Question about Epson DFX-8500 Matrix Printer
Hello everyone, im new here and in dire need of some help with my epson 8500 dfx the printer is connected to a server via ip and its is shared off the server to clients. Whenever they are printing batch jobs, of more than 20 prints, the first approximate 20 prints fine and aligned perfectly, the prints the follow after, some of the fields either start moving slowly right or left or up or down. I made adjustments to my form template that clients use to print to but same thing, first 20-25 comes otu perfectly alighned and as it continues to print the batch the fields move out of alignment. Its driving me crazy, any help appreciated. thanks

This may be a mechanical problem- perhaps the belt which pulls the printhead back and forth is slipping a cog tooth in the drive mechanism. Check this belt for proper tension, and that the cogs are in good condition.
There is also a home sensor located at the left-hand side of the printhead movement area which sets the home position of the head, and from this, the start of printing is determined. If this home position sensor is defective, this will cause problems. One certain Epsons, this sensor was a switch, and this would become erratic.
These are possibilities to check...
