  1. Hi can I ask for your assistance, Epson FX-2190 ribbon is not moving so that the print output was blurry and faded. How can I fix it? tnx.

    Note: The warranty of this printer was over, so I cannot return it to the manufacturer. :)

    If bought with credit card, may have extended warranty.

    "not moving" is difficult to diagnose as it probably needs 'hands on' evaluation, but you can try:

    Remove and inspect cartridge.

    Clean cartridge and cartridge receiver and ribbon drive assembly (a slight build up of paper waste, etc could misalign). Watch for a slipped belt.

    Try a new cartridge.

    Replace ribbon drive assembly ( http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Dot-...r/492100932.html?spm=2114.40010308.4.2.mdcKI2 )
