Question about Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer
I am printing long continuous graphs using program designed to produce same (obviously does not want s-o-p). I am using fanfold NCR tractor feed paper. Even though printer is set to not s-o-p and set for "roll paper", it skips anyway (Tried using both remote software and printer buttons to change defaults). Epson had me install LQ-570 driver and set up new paper type for 8.5" x 43". Using this driver, the printer does not s-o-p (finally), but does indent the graph about 1/4" for a few lines every 43" (bummer), then continues on with the job to the end. This workaround is ok for drafts, but not for finished work. Hint: the LQ-590 setup does not see the new paper type, so I have to use the LQ-570 driver to get anywhere. Any advice on how to REALLY overide the s-o-p in the LQ-590? Is there some other command that is interfering with the s-o-p setting?

When a paper jam occurs during printing for some reason, the printer beeps, displaying the message <PAPER JAM> in the display. When a paper jam occurs, remove the jammed paper using the following procedure, and then resume the job. If the message that indicates the paper jam does not disappear even after removing the jammed paper following the procedure, there is a possibility that torn pieces of paper are still left inside the printer. Inspect each part of the printer again, and completely remove all pieces of jammed paper.
