Clean the mech assembly. any oil or graphite will mess it up. the unit is designed to ride dry, two brass sleeves on a chromed carriage bar.

as long as there are no bent parts in the mech assembly the problem is cleanliness. dissasemble the unit and clean it with a non-residue degreaser. also clean the printhead carrage gears ( the ones that turn the ribbon) they will mess thins up too.

try these solutions then see if there are still problems.

Cost of print head replacement: $600-$700 and not realistic choice. What large format printer is available that will not have a regular print head failure every two years from light useage ?


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir, In Epson Printers if print head is struck and it don't move then it may be because of several reasons.Mostly problem of print head struck is because of Paper Jam, actually their may be small bit paper jam in side the printer head,There are some "micro-sensors" that detect a paper jam. There will be tiny piece of paper, or a lump of dust, inside those sensors, thus "tripping" the sensor and it struck the Print Head.Open printer cover and check to make sure no paper or foreign objects obstructing the printer feederIf you become sure that now really there is no paper, dust or foreign objects then
Turn the printer off, and disconnect the AC power-cable. Open the printer cover & now give the printer a "blow-job" by compressed air.It will clear the printer jam and it may allow you to move print head.
If problem still exist then it may be due to dirty or clogged print head which hinder a regular flow of ink from the ink cartridge to paper. The first step is actually knowing where the print head is and what it does. As you print a document, ink droplets leave the ink cartridge through the cartridge nozzle and go to the print head. The print head then lays the ink on a precise point on the paper. As you print, tiny droplets of ink can get stuck around the print head opening. If these drops get time to dry, they can form a crust around the print head and print head struck because of it. This problem can be solved if you clean the print head with software, There are a few ways to go about cleaning the print head. Potentially, the easiest way is to let your printer clean itself. Many inkjet printers will have maintenance options in the printers software that will actually clean your printer for you. You can use them to clean it, After cleaning it may allow you to move the print head.If the built-in cleaning functions don't seem to do the job then There are a few ways to clean your print head manually. Its technical because you need to open the Printer, First remove the ink cartridge from the print head and take the print head out of your printer and then dip a cotton swab in hot water or isopropyl alcohol and rub it against the print head. This should loosen any crusted ink. Put some isopropyl alcohol or hot water into a saucer and set the printer head in the saucer. Let it soak for at least an hour. If it's really dirty, it might be a good idea to let it soak overnight. Let it air dry, reinstall it in your computer, and run a cleaning cycle,This should get rid of any dried ink that was loosened during the soaking. Be careful, especially if you use isopropyl alcohol to clean your print heads, Some printers use rubber gaskets; if you get isopropyl alcohol on the gaskets, it could dry them out.This process surely helps you but its highly technical so i recommend if your product is in warranty or out of warranty.If your product is in warranty, Simply contact to Epson Service Center or from where you purchased it and claim the warranty. Your problem will be solvedI hope this solution helps you and you have clear picture in your mind
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.

Sir/Ma'am, Your Rating as Five Stars for this solution and Words of appreciation as Feedback for me will be really esteemed
Thank You for taking my service

My printer jammed and after removing the jammed paper, the printer will no longer print correctly. It skips lines and the text that it does print is blurred and lightened.


Hello.
Check under the print head itself to see if there is any clogged pieces of paper. you will need a torch as the bits may be soaked in ink and black in colour. sometimes small pieces can get stuck under after a jam.
Also make sure the print head is sitting low enough to the paper being printed on. you may have shifted it up when pulling out the jam.
I hope this helps Regards GM

Had paper jammed - removed jammed paper - but nerror light still on


Before you can clear a "PAPER JAM" or "PRINTER JAM" error, you must locate where in the unit the paper is jammed.
First, unplug the machine for safety and disconnect the telephone line. Next, follow these instructions based on where the paper jam is located.


Paper is jammed inside the paper tray:
  1. Pull the paper tray out of the machine.

  1. Pull out the jammed paper to remove it.
3-ug-1732.gif
  1. Reload the paper in the paper tray.

  2. Reinstall the paper tray.


Paper is jammed inside the machine:


  1. Remove the jam clear cover on the back of the unit. Pull the jammed paper out of the machine.

  1. Re-insert the jam clear cover.

  2. If you can not pull out the jammed paper, lift the scanner cover from the right-hand side of the machine until it locks securely into the open position.

  3. Remove the jammed paper.

  4. Check the print head's position. In the example photo the print head is positioned at the left hand side of the platen area.

  5. Gently move the print head to the center.


    scr2.jpg

    Note Be careful to not force the print head to move.
    If the print head is positioned at the far right hand side, you cannot move it. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".



  6. Examine under the print head. If anything is found, remove it.

    scr3.jpg

    Note Use a flashlight if necessary to check thoroughly.





  7. Lift the scanner cover to release the lock. Gently push the scanner cover support down and close the scanner cover.

  8. Reconnect the power cord and telephone line.

Note To prevent paper jams, do not put multiple kinds of paper in the paper tray at the same time.

If the message continues to appear on the LCD, the machine will require repair. Please contact Brother Customer Service from "Contact Us".

The error light on the Epson TM-T88IV keeps flashing whats wrong with it?


The following is from the Epson Users Manual:
Troubleshooting
No lights on the control panel
Check the power supply cable connections and the power outlet.
ERROR LED on (not flashing) with no printing
If PAPER OUT is on, the roll paper is not installed or is near the end.
If PAPER OUT is off, the printer cover is not closed properly.
ERROR LED flashing with no printing (and no paper jam)
Printing stops if the head overheats and resumes automatically when it cools.
If overheating is not the cause, turn the printer off, and after 10 seconds, back on.
Removing Jammed Paper
CAUTION:
Do not touch the thermal head because it can be very hot after printing.
1. Turn the printer off and press the cover open button.
2. Remove jammed paper, reinstall the roll, and close the cover.
3. If paper is caught in the cutter and you cannot open the printer cover, open
the cutter cover as shown in illustration J.
4. Turn the knob until you see a triangle in the opening. This returns the cutter
blade to the normal position. There is a label near the cutter to assist you. See
illustration K.
5. Close the cutter cover.
6. Open the printer cover and remove the jammed paper.
Cleaning the Thermal Head
CAUTION:
After printing, the thermal head can be very hot. Be careful not to touch it and
to let it cool before you clean it. Do not damage the thermal head by touching
it with your fingers or any hard object.
Turn off the printer, open the printer cover, and clean the thermal elements of the
thermal head with a cotton swab moistened with an alcohol solvent (ethanol, or
IPA).
Epson recommends cleaning the thermal head periodically (generally every
3 months) to maintain receipt print quality.

It sounds like your print head is overheating. Clean as instructed above.

Printer made machine gun noise. will not print.


The print head is stuck - something has jammed it and the noise you are hearing is the carriage for the print head. Open the top and try moving the head by head sideways to see what has jammed it.

Paper jam


For this and any other print jam problems try this;
Open the scan bed tray and push down the button at the front (scan bed tray open switch)
I found if your print jam occurs and you go through this procedure, the jam clears itself.
With the tray still up and switch held down, try and print something.
See how far the paper goes through the print cycle before jamming. If it jams when it reaches the print head...clean under the print head and try again.

Hope this helps

TROUBLE PRINTING



These are following cases for this symptom.

If the access indicator flashes in green:

The data size of the image is large and it takes longer to process it for printing. Printing will start as soon as the data processing finishes.

If the paper error indicator flashes on the LCD:

The paper is jammed. Turn off the printer and turn it on again, take out the paper tray, and then remove the jammed paper from the paper outlet. If you cannot remove the jammed paper, consult with your Sony dealer or service facility.

If no indicator is lit or flashing:

The thermal head may be overheated. Leave the printer until the head cools down and the printer resumes printing.
