For the ALPS printers, make sure you are using Windows XP SP2 or older. There are no Win 7 drivers and there can be problems with a Win XP SP3. Join the Yahoo ALPS group. In the files section they have a full description of the problem along with a work around. It usually is a conflict with the bi-directional communication and the LPT port. The LPT port needs to be motherboard based - not an add-on card.
Sounds like you have a problem with the anti-curl motor.
Assuming you are using Alps drivers, and not the Microsoft drivers that are loaded by XP, you can disable it by the following process:
1. Click File->Print 2. Click the Properties button in the dialogue that opens. 3. Check the checkbox labelled "Print on backside" in the Media Type box of the properties dialogue.
If you are using the Microsoft driver (And it sounds like you are, as the Alps drivers have a printer monitor that will inform you of any problems that the printer encounters), you will need to download and install the Alps drivers. You can get them by joining the alps and alpsdecal groups at http://groups.yahoo.com. They are in the Files section of one of the groups.
