Epson LQ 2090 paper issue

We are using four part paper on this printer. Lately we are having the problem that it is printing so heavily on the paper, that the first copy shreds apart when you pull the copies apart. How do I fix this please? Our customers are getting packing slips that are falling to pieces.

    I have tried that. When I put it to 5, which is the setting it recommends above for 4-part paper, it cuts it even more than when it is on level 0!!!

    Ummmm now what?!?

    chances are the platten gap needs to be adjusted on the printer itself, call manufacturer for warranty

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.

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...
