Horizontal lines appearing on the print out


Sounds like 1 or more ink jets are not printing. Try a head print test & then if errors are there do a head clean. These functions can be found in the maintenance tab.

I bought new cartridges for my Epson Stylus CX4200 All-in-One, but the yellow and Magenta barely print. I have run the head-cleaning program on the computer, the one with the colored lines, and it...


Use "spet" (tube only). Add flexible pipe (cut from oultet pipe of head cleaning mechanic). Connect to nozzle. Fill tube with cleaner. Move head to parking position. Do suction from outlet pipe of head cleaning. It's the safely way to clean print head manually.

Lines across horizontal on my printed piece


Do a nozzle check and determine if a head cleaning is required. I'm betting that a couple of headcleanings will solve the problem.

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

Color printing problem for Epson CX4200


try this :

Please confirm that the head cleanings were done using the most effective method listed below.

1) Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing.

NOTE: You cannot clean the print head if the any of the cartridges are expended. Replace the appropriate ink cartridge before proceeding.

2) Load letter size paper.

3) Click on START.

For Windows 95/98/ME: Click SETTINGS, PRINTERS, then RIGHT-CLICK on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PROPERTIES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows 2000: Click SETTINGS, PRINTERS, then RIGHT-CLICK on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows XP: Click CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS AND FAXES. RIGHT-CLICK your EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. If this icon is not showing, select VIEW INSTALLED PRINTERS. Then RIGHT-CLICK the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

For Windows Vista: Click CONTROL PANEL,HARDWARE AND SOUND then PRINTERS. Note: these steps may vary depending on how Vista is setup. RIGHT-CLICK on the EPSON STYLUS PRINTER ICON. Select PRINTING PREFERENCES from the drop-down menu. Proceed to Step 4.

4) Click on the UTILITY or MAINTENANCE tab, then click on HEAD CLEANING.

5) Follow the instructions on the screen to clean the printhead. Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which time the printer makes some noise and the power light flashes. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing, unless the printer has not moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

6) When the power light stops flashing click PRINT NOZZLE CHECK PATTERN and then click NEXT.

7) If the nozzle check pattern has no gaps in its lines, click FINISH. If the pattern has any gaps, click CLEAN to clean the printhead again.

8) If the situation continues after three cleaning cycles and nozzle checks, replace one of the affected ink cartridge(s).

9) Once the cartridge(s) has been replaced, please follow steps one through seven up to three times.
