Wrong adjustment using epson LQ-2180

Hi,
I got problem. my printer (epson LQ-2180) can't load paper (I use continuous paper), I must to roll manually when printer on, then printer will "catch" the paper automatically. and also, the result, sometime fonts seem fade out.

and, when I press LF/RF button (to rewind/forward paper), the printer can't roll paper correctly. when I press to rewind, printer roll forward.

how to fix it, or what is the problem?

really appreciate your help. thanks

Check to see if the pinch roller is set for standard sheet feeding the printer must feed by the tractor feed only.Does the paper get damaged when you try to feed or reset the page beginning, What we are looking for is a piece of one of the sheets loged in the pinch roller.Also check the pressure adjuster on the right side if you are not using multiple copie printing it should be set to medium . Let me know what you found... Be mucho blessed... Mark

Hi

My friend we have LQ2180 in our office, there i a lever in the right side of the printer that indicates when you print your document. Adjust to upward to print the document from rear tractor and to print from the front push the lever downward. Maybe you accidentally, push down the lever.

Any problem, just message me. Regards.
