Question about Epson LQ-1050 Matrix Printer
I have a sudden onset problem. The paper out (PO) sensor doesn't seem to be working: the PO red LED is always out, no matter whether paper is in the printer or not.
When using the tractor feed and having labels in the printer, pressing LOAD/EJECT used to move the first label back to the tractor: pressing ONLINE fed the labels to the correct start position.
Now pressing LOAD/EJECT causes the printer to eject about 1.5 A4 pages worth of labels (ie it backs them out and they fall off the push tractor instead of stopping as soon as they're clear of the roller). Then pressing ONLINE, the printer goes online without feeding the label to the proper start position. Even though there's no paper, it doesn't give a paper-out warning and will happily print onto the bare platen.
I've removed the roller, there's no obstruction: the paper-out sensor lever moves up and down freely and is correctly depressed when you manually advance the labels.
Its only problem with paper sensor .
adjust the sensor arm , which can get touch the paper guide which cause the same problem
its a mechanical sensor and it can be removed , clean and adjusted if contact problem of sensor arm

Try pressing the load/eject button and switch off the printer then switch on again
