Question about Epson Stylus Photo 1290 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hi We have Epson stylus photo 1290 for sublimation printing, and it keeps printing black splodges in the middle of prints, not in the same place each time, and not on every print. I can print a couple of pages and then it will suddenly do this. Any suggestions? Thanks Joy

    I have similar problem, of intermittent black blotches on my printouts, not resolved with print head cleaning or alignment. Not sure what's causing it....as if black ink has leaked onto something?

    Have you instructed the printer to clean the print heads?

Have the printer to perform the ink nozzles. If you have a continuos ink system place it at the same level than the printer.
Good luck and merry christmas.

    Joy:

    Put the printer in the "replace cartridge" position. Disconnect it to turn it off.

    By hand, clean the place where the cartridges rest. (home position). Clean with a cotton swab or towel paper or toilet paper. Remove the black ink Cartridge and visually check for a small piece.,,,a round piece like a bushing or a piece of pipe about 3 milimeter in diameter. This piece should be on the ink cartridge, but sometimes gets loose. If so, then ,too much ink will go to the printing head and/or the cartridge won´t go all the way down to its working position. Hope this helps.

    Happy New Year.

What do I have to do if I want to use sublimation ink on Epson stylus photo 1290?Thanks


what you want is not possible. the Epson Stylus Photo 1290 does not use sublimation ink. it is strongly advised to only use genuine Epson ink to keep the print quality of your print head as high as possible.

Epson 1290 - I just want to print in black and white


Unfortunately, Epson printers demand that both black and colour cartridges are OK before the printer will work at all. Now, if you are really sure that you only want to print black, the most cost-effective solution for you is to buy an Epson Chip resetter on E-Bay. This will reset your empty colour cartridge to "full", as far as the printer is concerned. You can then happily continue with your black-only printing.

Joy:
Once more have the printer to perform the ink nozzles cleaning.
If you are using a ontinuos ink system, place it at the same level than that of the printer.
With the printer in the "replace carrtidge position", put it OFF and by hand, clean the place at which the cartridge rest.
Good luck and merry christmas

Lines on prints


Hi kids! I decided to have another go at sorting out my 'lines' problem and have sorted it. See if this might work for you: I had previously done the head cleaning via the printer itself - holding the central ink/paper black button for 3 secs. This time I went to the Epson 1290 window on my Mac and clicked on the utility box. Though the Nozzle check print came out fine I went ahead and did the head cleaning in this box. The next print came out almost perfect so I ran the Head cleaning again and it printed a perfect print. Hope this might work for you. Keep on trying! All the best. Trant

This is a maintenance request. Basically the internal counter has hit it's limit and now requires that the counter is reset and the ink pads are replaced or cleaned.

Ask at http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com if they do a Rescue Kit for your machine. This should include all the goodies you need to get running again. If they have no kit for machine, let me know as I may have an alternative.

Blue lines all over the printing


Did u clean the print nozzle's as well? If that does not solve your problem, you should try and replace the cartridge. (Colour in case of blue lines and black in case of black lines)
