Question about Epson FX 890 Matrix Printer

1 Answer


When we print our paychecks our FX-890 drops a line each check printed so we must stop after every 2 paychecks, tear off and reset form feed to print 2 more checks... etc.
What can we do to fix this?

It sounds like the paper type is not setup properly on the PC, what program are you using to print your checks with? Have you performed printer setup within that program?

Your weekly paycheck is 20 percent less than your coworker's. your two paychecks total 890. Find the amount of each paycheck.

x will be my paycheck and y will be coworker's paycheck:
  • my paycheck is 20 percent less than coworker's so x is 20% smaller then y:
  • These two paychecks total 890:
  • We substitute x in previous equation:

  • y=890/1.8=494.4
  • x=890-y=395.6

II hope I helped you :)

Everytime I print there is un usual text that eppear in the upper left corner of my print out paper.. The error shows like this; @EJL 1284.4 @EJL

When a printer prints garbage, it usually indicates a faulty cable or a loose connection. Power OFF your printer and computer. Disconnect and reconnect the cable on the printer and computer. Once the cable has been reconnected, power the printer and computer back ON.
If you are still getting the error, take the cable and printer to another computer and it works fine, have your computer's port checked. If it still gives you garbage from another computer, have the printer taken in to be serviced.
