Hi there, Please help. Everything I print has vertical lines running through it. I have tried to change my printer and paper settings and the lines either appear further apart or darker but never disapear. Any help is very much appreciated. Laura.

Take it back, and get one that does work correctly.
> VERTICAL lines ACROSS the whole photo
Hold the paper in "portrait" mode, not "landscape" mode.
Are the lines HORIZONTALLY-ACROSS the paper,
or VERTICALLY-DOWN the paper?
If those lines are WHITE and HORIZONTAL,
then some of the many ink-jets inside the print-head are *CLOGGED*.
Run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle" to try to unclog it.
Or, exercise the WARRANTY, and get it replaced.
it sounds as if you may have the picture quality set to draft, its worth a check, especially if printing is ok. Does it print colour writing well too or just black, one of the colour inks may have a block or be low, go into printer settings menu and check what print quality its set for.
Sounds like you need to re-align the print cartridge . The reason the text comes out ok is probably because it is only using the black cartridge for text. The color cartridge is the one that's out of alignment. You may have some sort of Cannon utility running in the task bar that will allow you to easily allign the print cartridges. If not, go to the main "Printers and Faxes" window, RIGHT-click on the printer and select "Properties". You should be able to find a button in the properties that's labeled something like re-align print cartridges. It will print out a series of test pages and ask you to select the set of lines that looks the straightest and type it in. It's a good idea to do this every time you replace a cartrige. Hope this helps, If I was able to FixYa, please remember to rate me. Thanks.
I don't know if this will help as my printer is a different model (the epson stylus photo r280) but I have been battling the vertical line issue for weeks, ever since getting a new imac. I am printing altered photos from photoshop on epson ultra premium matte photo paper. After trying every conceivable setting, and spending an hour with less than helpful tech support from epson (where they insisted I needed to download new drivers) I just resolved it this morning at last by increasing the dpi setting on the print function to beyond what I would normally use(1440x 1440 rather than what I had been using at 720).
The prints came out great at last!
On my older computer with this same printer the prints came out fine at the lower setting. But for some reason it appears that the higher setting is now necessary to eliminate those dreaded lines.
open the related word document.
select 1 line above the Text in question, press enter twice.
That way, the text will drop by 2 lines.
try a test page on this, alternatively try using a different label layout, until you get the desired result.
Other than the AveryL7160.
