Question about Epson LQ-590 Matrix Printer

1 Answer

Screwy Print If I print two or more pages, the printer mis-prints everything on the page. It swaps portions of my header (my company's name & address) and prints a strip of it at the top of the page, and a strip at the bottom, and back up to the top. Everything is jumbled up & even printing on top of each other...

Could be a driver issue...
try uninstalling and reinstalling the printer driver
also make sure that the paper size that you are printing is correctly set on the driver..

you can either download the epson driver from or add the resident driver built in to your computer (if you are using xp)

Prints blank pages

hi jcruisedirec

Test print shows that there is no problem with he printer.
Do this:

Type just one or two words in a new document and try to print. Before printing, look at the print setup and make sure you have the correct printer name selected.
Also when you go to print, there are few options like:

  • Print All
  • Current page
  • Pages
  • Selection
If you attempt to print "selection" without actually selecting a certain portion of the document, you get blank page.
So first check that the correct name of the printer is selected.
Then test printing one page
Hope this will help you. Good luck.

Prints on only 1/2 of sheet of paper

Let's verify the main source of the problem:
Are you possibly printing web pages? Some are not very printer friendly, and could fit the description you give.
If you can print successfully from another application (notepad, MS Word, etc.), your printer is working and the issue is software related (setup, etc.), and not the device. Check your page setup to see if you have the correct page size, orientation and offsets set correctly.

If all apps fail, check your printer's User Guide for more information.

Fax confirmations

i have read the manual end to end and I don't think you can.
Only thing I see is this.

Customizing your settings using the Lexmark Fax Solutions You can adjust the fax settings in the Lexmark Fax Solutions. These settings apply to the faxes you send or receive.
  1. Click Start onestep.gif Programs onestep.gif Lexmark 7100 Series onestep.gif Lexmark Fax Solutions.
  2. Click Adjust speed dial list and other fax settings. hfaxsetutil.jpg
  3. Click each tab and change the settings as desired.
  4. Press Save Settings after you finish your updates. Nothing is saved until you press this button.
  5. Click Close.
The following table contains the Setup and Settings tabs for the Lexmark Fax Solutions.
On this tab
You can
  • Enter your company name and fax number.
  • Enter your name, company name, phone number and address as you want them to appear your cover page.
  • Select a cover page for your fax.
  • Choose to use error correction.
  • Choose to use fax header.
  • Select a maximum send speed and a print quality for outgoing faxes.
  • Choose whether to scan the entire document before dialing the number.
  • Select when to print a fax usage report.
  • Select when to print a fax activity report
Select when to print an activity report is the only close item I can find. Nothing whatsoever about a confirmation report.
