Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

Printer printing unwanted Barcodeish blobs.

I had printed over half my portfolio (that is going to be part of a packet I am mailing to a Grad School TOMORROW morning), and I stopped at around 7 AM to sleep. I had been experiencing no problems until now...and printed several sheets. But then, when I woke up and printed my first sheet, the same old problem came back.

This has been a reoccurring problem, but whenever I leave it alone for a while (usually out of disgust), and come back to it months later, it works well.



There is a scan of the problem. More often than not it always has happened half way through a page like that, after I have printed several successful prints. I tried nozzle cleaning and checking, just to experience more barcode-looking things. I am at a total loss for options save throwing this thing out the window...which isn't really a helpful one.

Well, I turned it off for around 4 or 5 hours, tried it once more and it was working again. I'm not sure if it got overheated or merely needed some time to sort itself out, but every time it started doing it again I just opened the lid, waited a bit, and printed nozzle checks until it snapped out of it.

Funny thing, technology...

When printing not all the colors are displaying. Also, printing a document the printer prints every other line. Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Every other line prints only bottom half of text.


I have a psc 2355 printer which only prints half of text then the next lines are ok then it repeats only printing half text. I removed my ink cartridge and wiped the ink ports with a tissue heavily moisten with water. Repeated this several times and then gently dried with a tissue. The problem was fixed!!

Apparently a solution has already been posted here: http://www.fixya.com/support/t345435-ip4300canon_printer

The author provides instructions on opening the printer and gluing the sensor into the "open" position (assuming that the sensor still works).

Printing won't cancel


When you say it is printing "unwanted pages," what is it printing? Are they blank? If so, you may need to reformat your pages. What program are you printing from?
