    the leading edge of photo prints have a yellowish tint on the first 1/4 inch or so. Tech wanted to replace everything but the hubcaps. I think it is likely a software problem since the remainder of the print (letter size to 13x19") is flawless. Would try the driver reload solution except I have another 2200 with the same driver (replace USB cable, etc.) and it works fine.

    I have the same problem with the single band 1/4" from starting edge. I did nozzle check and aligned the heads (which usually helps) but nothing seems to help now. I'm using the same high quality matte paper on which I've already printed about 100 great photos already. How long do I keep the 2200 before considering upgrading printers? I've had this about five years.

Before the printer starts the actual image it prints a line above where it should start.

I'm using Mac OS X 10.5.8. My Epson 2200 has gone nuts. It prints reds as green, etc etc. Completely unusable prints


Good Day!
Try "Head Cleaning". you can find it under printer properties, maintenance tab, then hit on head cleaning. once done, hit on print check pattern, please continue doing this until the print out goes clearer. after this, try to print a document again.
i hope this helps.

My Epson 2200 prints leaving horz bands about every 1/2 inch. I have not usrd the printer for over a year but did install allnew ink.


Your print head probably has crusted ink on it, as the heads are built into Epsons. If you have tried cleaning, deep cleaning, and then priming (the last 2 aren't available on all Epsons), and it is still banding, you have 2 options:
Disassemble the printer and soak the head in alcohol and hope it works OR get a new printer.
Heads on an Epson are too expensive to bother swapping out.

Epson 2200 - vertical lines


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.

I hope this helps.

Inkjet photo printing


This may sound idiotic, but print out a nozzle check pattern in your maintenance tab. Good chance you have a clogged printhead. Check out how to do a print head cleaning and what solutions and tools you'll need. Careful if you're using compatible inks or refilled cartridges, or long expired ink.

This one works great for me. Go GENTLY, best not to use Windex or any unauthorized solutions, as they may cause damage to plastic parts.

White bands on my prints


Did you try cleaning the decoder strip? It is located behind the print head, looks like the tape inside a cassette tape. If it has ink splatter or a smudge on it carefully wipe it down with a paper towel (damp). It may be easier to remove it, careful not to stretch the little spring on the left side.
