    Yep - Same problem here. It occurs when I print large amounts of color. I have reason to believe that the lines are occurring when the print heads "rest" on the page, before beginning again.

    Any suggestions? The checks all come out clean...

    I just set up my printer and the first 2 prints were fine, then the white lines started. The files have a lot of color, but was expecting more from an epson. Any suggestions?

    I'm dealing with the same thing. This printer is right out of the box. I printed a few pages and everything looked awesome. Then I sent multiple pages at once and I've got white/faded color lines running through the page. Regardless of how saturated the color, this really isn't acceptable.

Okay. After some internetz scouring, I found a solution for what I was experiencing. The problem is probably that your print options are optimized for speed and not quality.

Epson printer 1400, is printing vertical blue lines through my prints. How can I eliminate them?


If the lines are vertical to the direction of the printhead movement, you need to clean the paper rollers and the small "pizza wheels" of your printer. Also check for any traces of stuck paper in the paper path. I recon you ars not using genuine inks, right? Try to slow down your print speed by selecting a best quality setting.
If the lines are parallel to the printhead movement, your printhead is either clogged our stuck.

Hi,

Your problems states that photos are being blank when trying to print it.
Please try these tips.

  • Make sure your printer is selected in the Print window or in the Macintosh Page Setup and Print windows.
  • The print head nozzles may need cleaning.
  • Make sure your printer software settings are set for the paper size you're using.

Plus,i also wanted to know if you can print ordinary documents or print a test page.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Poor print quality, not fully black with white lines through text/images.


The white lines are caused by some CLOGGED ink-jets that are not spraying the ink onto the paper at the appropriate time.

Start the Epson printer-software, and run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", to try to UNCLOG those ink-jets.

Change black ink and now prints with white lines through the words on every other line


It is CLOGGED print-heads that cause the ink to _not_ be sprayed onto the paper, resulting in "white" horizontal lines.

Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", using the Epson software installed when you installed the printer.

My epson 1400 printer doesn't print


try printing a nozzle check to see if the nozzles are clogged by dried inks that why nothings printing. turn off the printer than press and hold power and paper button together for 3 sec. then release, it will print, if blank, all nozzles are clogged. do a head cleaning. hold the ink button for 3 seconds. wait until the power light stops flashing then print nozzle check again until all lines are complete,

Epson r390 printer prints blank(no text on paper)


Check condition of head first. Move head to parking position (head cleaning position). From outlet pipe of head cleaning mechanics, do suction. It's there is ink, the head is not clog (and the flow of ink is ok). Make nozzle check. If nothing lines appear, the problem is in board (cause you just reset). Using resetter, do initial setting. Good luck.

Epson Stylus Photo R800 Print Head Nozzles ??


Don't use nozzles clean function, besides ink consuming it can cause damages that cannot be fixed: black lines on the back side of the page that will be permanent. Instead put two photo paper together (2x260 gr) and push the two papers together into the printer while printing a motive including many colors. Do so a couple of times and the clogg usually disappears. Good luck! jonk
