This may be a mechanical problem- perhaps the belt which pulls the printhead back and forth is slipping a cog tooth in the drive mechanism. Check this belt for proper tension, and that the cogs are in good condition.

There is also a home sensor located at the left-hand side of the printhead movement area which sets the home position of the head, and from this, the start of printing is determined. If this home position sensor is defective, this will cause problems. One certain Epsons, this sensor was a switch, and this would become erratic.

These are possibilities to check...

    Oh, first! the guide bar on which the printhead rides might need cleaning and relube. Use some light machine oil (like 3 in one, or Singer sewing machine oil). Use a small cloth, tissue paper, paper towel to clean the bar prior to oiling.

My Epson LQ-590/LQ-2090 keeps having paper jams located just beyond the tractor feed.. help

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.
