Epson stylus photo 1290 printing black splodges

I use an Epson stylus photo 1290 for sublimation printing and keep getting black splodges in the middle of prints, not every time, and in different places on the page. Any ideas? Thanks, Joy

    Just to let you know that someone suggested I switched the lever on the right hand side to '+', from '-', and it worked!

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

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.

Black Won't print on my 1290


I have had these issues before (that's why I never use refill carts anymore: false economy) You'll just have to keep running the clean cycle until it goes through. This may take several tries, and will waste tons of ink - hence the false economy of refills!

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)
