Question about Epson LQ-1050 Matrix Printer

Paper Out Sensor Not Working

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.

Any solution?

It seems you assume that it is not an overheating problem.
The problem is, the bulb gets really, really hot when using the projector. It doesn't matter whether it has been there without any usage. As you switch it on, it will start to get hot.
But the lamp or other parts of the projector should not get too hot. To control the temperature, air is moved through the projector with the help of fans. Air enters through air filters and move through the projector absorbing heat from hot parts. This prevents these parts from getting overheated.
But what if air doesn't flow freely? Then the parts CAN get overheated.
First, switch on the projector and check whether you can hear the fans working.
Next, switch off the projector and remove power cable.
After about 30 minutes, remove the cover and check whether the air filters are blocked. If they are, clean them with a small brush.
This would probably solve your problem.

Just had both o2 sensors replaced and now the truck won't shift from 2nd to 3rd gear. Evidently it had been slipping a bit before but now it won't shift into 3rd at all. The tranny is an E4OD......


O2 Sensors --- not related to shifting

New transmissions --- are only new once
When installed on the assy line

Has to be rebuilt if necessary

PO 147 ---O2 Sensor Heater (Bank 1 Sensor 3) don't have one of those
PO714 -- Trans Temp Sensor -heat for the slipping
PO 471 --- Exhaust Pressure Sensor -don't have that either

Pass thru sensor and flag assembly:
The tray 2 option system board did not detect a piece of paper
actuating the pass thru sensor. Remove any jammed sheets of paper
from the printer and check the pass thru sensor and flag for proper
operation by running the appropriate Tray Sensor Test from the
diagnostics menu. If the test fails, check the sensor for correct
installation and the flag for proper operation. Also check the sensor
cable to make sure it is correctly connected to the option system
board. If incorrect, replace the tray 2 option pass thru sensor
assembly.

Check these parts for signs of broken or damaged parts,
contamination on the drive rollers or wear plate and wear or damage
to the drive shaft bearings. Check the drive roll assembly and skewed
backup roller for wear, slick spots, material buildup, and oil or grease
on the rollers. Also check for proper operation of the paper aligning
assembly. Repair or replace parts as necessary.

Error 18 is a "Paper Edge Search Error".


1. Check document for damage and check it meets specs.
2. Check that Ribbon Cartridge is installed correctly.
3. Do "Form-Edge Sensor Service Check"
4. Do "Platen" adjustment.

Sensor Status Display:

1
. Start Self-Test (press and hold Start 1 on panel: then turn on printer. Keep holding button until at least "00" is displayed.
2. Use a magnet to override cover closed/open sensor to the left of the Start1 button in the indent.
3. Press Reject Off button until "4" is displayed.
4. Press Start1 button to shift to next digit.
5. Press Reject Off to display "4"
6. Display should now read "44"
7. Press Start2 button. The LED display indicates sensor status'
8. You will see changes with inserting paper or removing paper.

FORM-EDGE SERVICE CHECK:
Perform sensor status display as stated above. The sensor is located on the print head carriage on the left side.

1. The upper right vertical segment of the left LED digit is assigned to the form-edge sensor for Command "44"
With no paper the LED segment is unlit.
2. Check the sensor by inserting paper. Move the print carrier to the right to access the sensor mounted on the print carrier.
If the LED segment becomes lit when you insert the paper, and becomes unlit when you remove the paper, sensor is OK.
3. If the sensor does not work, check that the sensor cable is connected correctly. If the cable is okay, replace the following one at a time:
a. Form Edge Sensor -46H2648
b. Form Edge Sensor Cable -46H2730
c. Main Card -
1.46H2632 - Serial Interface
2.46H2634 - Parallel Interface

It has a safety switch. This switch turns machine on when it detects paper and off if it doesn't. Something wrong with sensor. Broken, paper stuck under it, out of position. Will have to open it up and check the sensor. ***Always remember to unplug any equipment before working on it***

High pitch buzz from speakers


Is this a sudden onset problem or has it always done this?

Loose analog signal cables or any cabling run near power cables can induce 60-hz hum. Sometimes simply reversing an ac plug somewhere in the system can help.

If you can, move the whole system to another room and try it there. Consider things like track lighting lamps or variable controls.

I have royal shredder and suddenly stopped. reverse side is working. There is no paper stuck in it. please help. Thanks


There are LED photo sensors in the feed path that detect paper. They can get a build up of paper lint or oil on them. The shredder needs to be taken apart and these need to be cleaned.
