Question about Epson LQ-1050 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

My Epson FX-1050 matrix printer stops printing in the middle of the page. It also will not go offline. I have to turn off the printer and turn back on. Same thing keeps happening. I've cleaned the area and checked the ribbon. I also have taken the multi-part paper out and put back in. What can I do now? Thank you for any help.

    We have Windows XP Pro. We've never had this problem before. I was able to print one thing this morning, now it stops.
    At first I thought it was the paper feed on top that kept it from feeding properly and stopping the print. I took that off and it still stops. My next guess is the carriage roller may be too tight. Any suggestions there?
    I do have the manual but it's all greek to me.

    another thing is to try to install and uninstall your driver, download a driver from the epson website pertaining to the model that you have and the version of your operating system. if it still persist, the best way is to try to print from another computer and see if it will still have the same issue.

    if it still does that, i believe it would need service since i think epson does not have any significant warranty for impact printers

    cheers and hopefully that would work

2c. if on USB, open printer properties window and do a windows test page

if 2c fails, re-install driver
