Question about Epson STYLUS CX3900 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Strange Characters in Print Set-Up page for cx3900f

When I go to Print a page and go to Printer Options, I cannot read anything. The page is just a series of symbols - all lines and squares and letters in brackets etc such as llll[B] . To me it seems that a driver must be not installed correctly. This is a new machine and I have downloaded and installed exactly as instructed on the CD. It prints fine - test page is perfect, but the Printer Options are in gobbledy gook. Any ideas please.

Poor Print Quality


the print head has a series of pins that shoot back and forth striking the ribbon and placing a dot on the page, a series of dots create a letter etc. one pin is not working correctly. it could be the head but try re-instal drivers to eliminate that as a cause. if the line persists then i'm afraid it may well be the head to be replaced. good luck
