Question about Epson LQ-2180 Dot Matrix Printer
When i try to print out my documents by using the 3-ply computer form paper, i adjust the paper thickness lever to no.2. The 3rd ply of the computer form comes out to be very blur. So, i try to adjust it to no.1, the 3rd ply is clear but the problem now is the 1st ply of the computer form paper becomes very dirty with the drag ink line accross the paper. Then i try to adjust it to no.0, the thing is getting better and the drag ink line is not there. I'm just wondering, does it mean that it's time to change my printer head or the paper thickness lever got problem already? How should i solve the problem then?
I think there's a problem with the pin of your print head. it becoming worn-out. so replace it, or you buy the head print new one...
