As per my knowlege follow the above steps one of this surly work.

1 clean the head bar with oil (both front and reare)
2 remove head clean it with brush "SOFTLY".
3 remove the head cables and check whethe you see silver pins perfectly and it connects inside.
4 turn the printer on, see the movement.
5 now...turn printer off and keep holdin FORM FEE,LINE FEED AND LOAD/EJECT buttons and
6 keep paper mode for single paper.

Till your problem solves then ok else

1 open the printer change the data cable of your printer and check.
2 clean the entire printer.
3 see logic board if you see any dust on "ANY DIRTY THING ON LOGIC BOARD" clean it.
4 if possible clean logic boad with ISO profile.

if non of these solves your problem try another logic board.

It seems the LQ 1170 was supported with the EPSON Universal P6 Printer Driver 2.0.0
.. up to Windows 7 but no further.

It seems the only likely solution is to just try plugging the printer in and crossing your fingers. If it installs the simple driver you're in luck.

Given the age of the printer and that driver specific support for the model was discontinued pre-Windows-XP it's unlikely other solutions will arise.

Cant print continuosly in epson lq300+

Sounds as if the format is wrong. You must set the paper format in the PC wordprocessor or invoicing software to the same size as the actual paper size of the invoice.

Sounds very much like you using a incorrect printer driver not the driver for LQ Dotmatrix. Uninstall and reinstall make sure you using correct LQ series driver and this is your default printer.
