Re: Prints one line and stops

Every printer has inside Rollers that help the transportation of the paper during printing.
When the Rollers are faulty then the paper finds it difficult to move successfully during printing.

Also there is a motor that spins to rotate the i think any of these may be faulty.

Try and get a printer specialist to check it for you or you can come live chat with me and i will direct you..

Good luck

When printing continuous Quicken checks with the Epson LQ-590, the first check prints perfectly but the second check prints about 2 lines lower than the first check, then the third check prints 2 lines...

It can be the margins set within the printer defaults or the margins set by Quicken. In your print preview within Quicken you should be able to see where the margins are set and adjust accordingly. Otherwise, you may need to go to your Epson's print queue and adjust the properties directly on the printer. A nice way to check it is to see if you can print some test checks to plain paper and adjust as you see fit!

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.

When printing document, half prints.

You didn't mention which paper feed you are using but I would guess tractor-feed Z-fold? If so, you may have a damaged sprocket drive.  
If not, you need to remove the platen and check for paper scraps in the paper path and if you ever use the printer with labels, you may have some residue from the adhesive impeding paper movement.
Also check that you do not have the printhead positioned too close to the paper as this can cause drag that will cause paper to slip.
These printers are just about bullet-proof with very little maintenance.
