SOURCE: Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer Paper feed Problem

Assuming that you are feeding the paper into the correct end of the printer :), it seems that the printer is defective, but

First unplug the printer from the wall, wait a few minutes,
and see if it resets. If that does not work, read on.

  1. Printer rollers (and sometimes head movements as well)
    are controlled by "Stepping Motors"

    Unlike an ordinary DC motor with two wires, that spins
    clockwise or counter clockwise depending on the voltage
    polarity,

    a stepping motor contains several pairs of wires, that
    are pulsed in a controlled sequence, causing the motor
    to spin in precise angular steps. Depending on the
    number of wire pairs (poles) and internal gears, the
    stepping motor can have a resolution as course as
    90 degrees, and as fine as 0.05 degrees per step,
    depending on the cost and applications.

    Linear stepping motors can even move an object in
    a straight line.

    The benefit of these stepping motors is that, unlike a
    linear servo motor, they do not need complex positional
    feed-back for precise control, they simply step as many
    times as you tell them to. Four steps left, two steps back
    .... etc.

  2. These stepping motors are in turn driven by semiconductor switches (transistors) which are
    ultimately controlled by a central processor within the printer.

    Depending on the printer model, and how sophisticated
    the printer's internal processor is, the paper and head
    movements can be either automatically controlled by
    SOFTWARE (firmware) within the printer itself, or by the device drivers installed in Windows.

    The more self-sufficient the printer is, of course, the less
    hassle and CPU overhead on your PC.

  3. When any of the components within this chain of command fail, the stepping motor will move incorrectly:

    a) Skip steps
    b) Get stuck
    c) Oscillate back and forth
    d) Spin backwards.

  4. The causes could be:

    a) One bad wire in the ribbon connecting the motor
    to its controller board.

    b) Bad motor driver transistor: Open or shorted.

    c) Bad data line from the printer's internal control
    processor to the driver transistor array.

    d) Bad processor chip, memory or firmware within
    the printer, e.g. a burned out register or firmware
    memory location.

    e) Defective internal power supply, causing everything
    else to malfunction.

    f) Bad paper position sensor

    d) Crashed control program, which is probably the
    only thing that is fixable:

    i) unplug the printer from the wall socket, wait a
    few minutes, and see if it resets.

  5. It is also remotely (theoretically) possible, that
    the Window drivers are corrupt but this is very unlikely.

  6. If you are fairly brave and want to take the printer apart, and have some electronics knowledge and a few basic instruments, probe the roller drive motor wires, and see what gives. Is one wire stuck consistently low or high ?

    Is one of the motor windings open or shorted ?

    Is one of the driver transistors fried ?

    This very much depends on your level of skill, and the test equipment you have to work with. If you don't have a decent oscilloscope you will not get far. Without a digital multimeter you will not get anywhere at all.
Also do not forget that printers are dirt cheap, less than the ink when it runs out, so this may not be worth your time and effort.

Call the manufacturer, scream blue murder, accuse them of setting your house on fire and giving your dog diarrhea ....

and see if they will send you a freebee.

Hope this explains it.
Please rate my answers.

SOURCE: paper won't feed

My CX4800 developed the same problem. It was an excellent machine until then. I tried everything I could think of, and finally decided it must be the rather large feed in rollers at the right of the paper bin (one below and one above the paper) that had worn too smooth to pull the paper in. It works fine if I will give the sheet a "push" when it starts to go down - but who has time to stand there and push each piece in! It would really be nice if Epson would provide us with inexpensive replacement rollers and instructions for installing them. Guess they had rather we just buy a new printer - which I did, a CX7800, only to find that it will not take the heavy weight photo paper. :-(

Sorry I couldn't help more.

SOURCE: Paper won't load. Media loaded incorrectly.

Okay.. 1st off I'm probably going to the jumped on for this... But.. I fix and/or make them work printers, computers and all sorts of electronic gear. For a living... Yes .. the manufacturer will tell you not to use alcohol to clean the rollers. but it does work. Windex (ammonia) will clean the heads at times. I also use Scotch brite pads to clean the pickup rollers. We get them in about 8x10 inch pads.
I will spay some alcohol on the end where the pick up roller is. Place the pad in normal paper tray. Most printers have a cam shaped one on the right, left or in the middle. That gets the paper moving. The pad is way to thick to actually move and will cause a jam indication on the printer. But what happens is the roller will slip on the pad and clean itself. Pretend you cleared the jam a couple of times and the printer will try to pick up the 'paper' and jam again. A couple of these and the pick up roller (cam shaped) will usually be good to go. The other option (the best) is to buy a new pickup roller for the printer. But cleaning will work for the short term. What happens on most printers is the roller gets very smooth from normal use and then won't pick up the paper for the rest of the trip through the printer. I have used a piece of fine grade sand paper, but you have to hold it so it won't go through the printer and it makes a gritty mess... Once I orderd a 'printer cleaner' from HP and all it was, was a couple of pieces of scotch brite glued to a fancy holder to match the spacing of the rollers. That's when I started using sheets of the stuff. Just pretend they are a piece of printer paper. In the worst case I have used belt dressing and then alcohol to clean most of it off. Alcohol has a tendency to soften the rubber on the pickup roller. That's why the company says don't use it. But you can by rubber rejuvenator that is mainly alcohol.. Go figure.........

How to install my tvs msp 345 champion printer?


This is a dot matrix printer made by TVS Electronics of India. It used the older parallel port interface (and had an optional serial interface). To hook it up, you'll need a PC with a parallel port, a parallel port cable and drivers. Most PC's no longer have parallel ports, so you'd need to add a parallel port card or use a USB to parallel port adapter.
