Question about Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

First line not printing

I am printing on continuous label sheets. I have my labels set up in WordPerfect as 4 to a page (even though it's continuous paper). This is what worked on my previous dot matrix. The printer won't print the first line of every 4 labels. It doesn't matter where my TOF is. My top and bottom margins are zero. I want to print right up to the perforation. It does this on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th label, but on the 1st, 5th, 9th, etc., it leaves off the first line. Very frustrating. Have a ticket in with Epson but they don't like problems they can't solve with a ready made answer. :(  If anyone can help, I would SO appreciate it! Thank you!

It sounds like you are trying to get too much onto the labels or onto a sheet of labels. Try a few pages with a size smaller font and if that solves the problem, the issue is too much info for the epson to fit on.

WP will push the limits of any printer if you make it do so like this and the printer maker may have rounded the specs in the driver.

Update your driver.


Try changing from inches to cm or points etc to see what the limits are.

Then respect that the printer can do no more with that particular driver.

Good luck

How to print only one sheet at a time not all sheets


This can be a little tricky. If you haven't used any of the labels yet, simply put the address in the first label and simply print. The printer will print the address on the first label and all you have to do is remove it and put it in place. Next time you need to make another label, set up the program that you are going to use to print the label and once the "Avery 8168 Inkjet" label is on your screen just move the cursor to the second label (With Corel WordPerfect just hold the ctrl key and hit the Enter key) and print your return label. Using this procedure you can use one sheet of labels without having to print all labels at once or using a new sheet.

Make sure the option for bidirectional printing is set correctly.

Try it both ways

Make sure you are not printing too far to the left or the right - the print head can hit the end of its run and lose its place.

Alignment wrong when using label stationery - OK with plain paer


Hi,
open the related word document.
select 1 line above the Text in question, press enter twice.
That way, the text will drop by 2 lines.
try a test page on this, alternatively try using a different label layout, until you get the desired result.
Other than the AveryL7160.

Zebra TLP 2844-Z Thermal Label length problem


how are you sending the data to the printer and what type of media are you using? you can set the page hight via the ZPL command ^LL ,the value you send with ^LL is in dot, so if I wanted to set the label hight to 10cm I would send ^LL800. Or if you are printing via a windows driver configure the printer to continues media.

Avery laser addressing labels l7160


What software are you using? I use Microsoft Word to print my Avery labels, and quite often have to tweak their templates by simply adjusting my margins on the page. I do a 'select all' and then add one tenth of an inch at a time until the proof sheet looks just right. If the labels are a bit off, you can also adjust the pitch in the label options dialoge.
