Epson stylus cx7400 prints color pics with vertical rainbow lines

I've had this problem for a while and it seems to come and go. epson stylus cx7400 prints color pics with vertical rainbow lines ever since i changed the ink cartridges the first time. i've tried epson ink and combatibles and the only difference is the lines are less noticable with epson but still present. i've done multible nozzle cleanings and head alignments and i even get some vertical unwanted lines during these processes. i've wasted so much ink trying to get rid of these stupid annoying lines. hope there's a solution because i like this printer but i might be trading it in on a kodak or something similar that is noted for printing pics with reasonable ink prices.

Why does my Epson Stylus NX300 print a rainbow color band at the bottom of vertical 4x6 pictures


DOES THIS COLOR SHOW UP ON YOUR PRINT PREVIEW?

IF NOT, THAN GO INTO PRINT CARTRIDGES ON YOUR COMPUTER AND CLEAN THEM UP!

THAN DO A TEST ON A SEPERATE PIECE OF PAPER THE SAME PICTURE TO MAKE SURE IT HAS STOPPED WITH THE RAINBOW PROBLEM YOU'RE HAVING.

YOU MAY ALSO HAVE PICTURE SETTINGS WRONG ON YOUR COMPUTER, YOU CAN CHECK THESE UNDER PRINT PREFERENCES.

IF NON OF THE ABOVE WORK, THAN TAKE YOUR PRINT CARTRIDGES OUT AND CLEAN THE CONTACTS WITH SOME RUBBING ALCOHOL AND A Q-TIP.

EPSON Stylus SX600FW printer. Recently changed


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Blurred black printing


GENERIC CARTRIDGES DO THIS.

Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges.

Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, etc.

All Generic Cartridges, will print lines thru the words, or just print the top or bottom, and also do a mix match with the colors. That's what the Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges.

Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Cartridges for the PRINTERS.

Since you do not mention if you're getting any ERROR Code, this is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Vertical banding (rainbow effect)


You need to scan the prints at the same resolution that they were printed. Otherwise you'll get that screen door effect (moire pattern). I think this effects most scanners. I'm currently looking for a photoshop solution to this problem since I don't have the originals. Not fun.
