Epson Epson Stylus Color 660

Epson Stylus 660 prints sometimes

My mothers Epson Stylus 660 quite often does peculiar things. When we first got it it would sometimes leave a one to two inch gap on documents. Now we've been printing photos, sometimes they print and sometimes they'll only get the top edge printed and then the printer will keep feeding the paper. Also, sometimes a few unreadable computer icons will be printed on the page. I've downloaded the latest driver for it and have changed any settings recommended to possibly help but the problem still persists.

The computer it's connected to is a Compaq 7470. I've downloaded any updates for it including a special update to adjust the rom settings. I've also updated Windows 98 with the latest additions. I've found some definate improvements with certain aspects of the computer.. but the printer problems persist. Any ideas what could be wrong?
