Re: my epson r290 produce streaking lines during photo...
Did you install continuous ink with your R290? The shadow image is usually the delayed printout as a result of the restrictions or limited movement of the INK CART. Adjusting the placement of ink pipes support positions and its length that should just be enough so the cart could move freely on both sides of the printer. Good luck.

i hope this helps.
Sure can be printhead can be cleaned but remember one thing you are dealing with a delicate thing and need to take care while doing this.
1. remove the head from the printer 2. Take little lukewarm water in a container (remember not to submerge the complete head in water) 3. Take a Syringe with little water in it and insert in the tip where the ink is supplied to the head from cartridges. 4. be gentle and do not force the water too much as this will damage the head gaskets. 5. keep in water again for some time and repeat the same process once more but this time do the suction from the same syringe so the dirt can come out into the syringe. 6. Install back the head and do the head cleaning 2 times
Are your alignment tests show good results? If they are, try head cleaning 3 consecutive times without printing nozzle checks. After 3 head cleanings do the nozzle check. If problem persists try printing at BEST PHOTO or whatever is the slowest print setting for your printer. Good luck!
Assuming you have aligned the head to produce the minimum noticeable amount of white streaks and gioven all the cleaning, deep cleaning and alignment you have done there are two conclusions.
1. If the printer has been performing OK and using the same ink supply in the CISS and the actual printed results are OK then simply continue withthe setup as is.
2. If the setup as is is producing unacceptable results then you will have to consider changing the print head for a new one.
Check nozzle. Is there some lines missing? Do head cleaning procedure from peinter maintenance. Wait for 15 minutes. Check nozzle again. If there is just little missing lines, you can print with fine/photo quality fot better result.
Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).
Are you confident the new cartridges are full and in-date? Can you confirm that the old cartridges were not removed until immediately before the new cartridge was installed. Did you remove the yellow tape from the new cartridges before you installed them? Were the cartridges changed properly such that an ink charging cycle occurred. Have you carried out any head cleaning cycles recently? If not, do it. Then do a nozzle check print. Any improvement? Yes, but not perfect? If so do a couple more head cleans and nozzle checks. If still not perfect, let it rest for 24 hours to disperse air bubbles. Then repeat.
If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have good ink cartridges properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean/nozzle check again. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.
