This is a feature provided by the manufacture to protect the print head overheat for small dot matrix printers. Here giving printer head connection diagram, the last two row have temperature sensing (thermister) connection pin 1 to 1. If the thermister is faulty in the print head the printer will auto pause abnormally. Check the printer with compatible / EPSON recommended print head.

There is an adjustment which moves the printhead closed to the paper. Try adjusting that. Also check that your ribbon is transporting correctly and the the head is not printing on one spot of the ribbon too long.

I have an LQ Epson printer which has refused to print it passes out the paper which is blank. when i command a job, it just prints a blank page with out any writings

Do you hear the sound of the solenoid of the printer head during printing? if not then there is a cut traces on the head cable. if you hear it then you have to change the ribbon. try also to check the lever adjust bar on the printer (usually found with a blue head on the left part if it is an lq-2180++ model or on the right part if it is an Lx300++)

I have an Epson LX-300 dot matrix. The problem is the print is smudged/with black lines patches along the printed matter. The ribbon mask is lost. I'm curious to know the purpose of this ribbon mask. Does...

The mask stops this sort of problem and the print head could do with cleaning so that the pins don’t get stuck. The ink coagulates over the years and causes the pins to jam and eventually tear up ribbons of just burn up the driver coils in the head assembly. The head face needs cleaning with a cotton bud or two or three with isopropyl alcohol to remove all the ink residue from the pins and shafts. If you can remove the head assembly this is much easier to do.
