Epson 7600 Stylus Pro, lines on image

I have the Epson Stylus Pro 7600 UltraChrome Ink.
I am trying to print large format, high quality images (24"w X ??") on Premium Glossy Photo paper.  Faint lines are appearing across the images with every passage of ink. The lines tend to be more visible in more saturated colors and less with the black.
I have run it through a cleaning cycle, a nozzle check, and a power cleaning cycle. I have replaced all cartridges that are almost out of ink.  This is a very inconsistent problem. It tends to happen more when the printer has not been used in a while, however does not really improve after multiple cleaning cycles.
There seems to be no problem with printing on matte paper.
How do I eliminate the lines?

SOURCE: printer cartridge problem

I have a 440 and have had the same problem. Of course, I have been using cartridges from Printpal, Inkgrabber, etc. that are not official Epson. I have found that it takes several cleanings and after the cartridge has been in the position for the ink to go down it will start. My last order from Printpal said to set all the cartridges in the position they are in when installed in the printer for several days prior to installation. Of course, every cleaning of the print head uses up more of your ink. You don't have much choice though.

SOURCE: Very Faint Printouts

I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus Photo R800 Print Head Nozzles ??

Don't use nozzles clean function, besides ink consuming it can cause damages that cannot be fixed: black lines on the back side of the page that will be permanent. Instead put two photo paper together (2x260 gr) and push the two papers together into the printer while printing a motive including many colors. Do so a couple of times and the clogg usually disappears. Good luck! jonk

The difference in choosing the paper type will have an impact on how head squirts ink onto the media. For Epson printers, the best choice to fit the color is plain paper.However, to the maximum dpi (best photo or photo rpm), plain paper does not support.This can be overcome by adjusting the color management of the program that we use.Or convert to bitmap all objects (such as Corel Draw), or also in print as bitmap option.

I have an Epson 7600 that I just purchased on EBay. I tested it when I picked it up and it worked fine. When I try to print from home I get a "Command Error" and all the ink lights flash red.


In addition to searching for the Model number of your printer, try adding the P/N (part number) which is usually found on the bottom of the printer. I have found that some models of printers can have different drivers especially when they have been manufactured a couple of years apart. When I searched for your printers driver, I came up with a file very similar to yours except that it was called epson12167.exe. Here is the link to that file. I hope it makes the difference:

I've been having problems with my Epson 7600 large format printer, I recently took it all apart to unblock the light black tube. I reassembled the printer and everything is back to normal apart from I now...


The most common cause of horizontal banding is generally missing, deflected or clogged nozzles. To see if this is the cause you should first print a nozzle check and examine the printout with a 10x or better eye loupe for any missing or deflected nozzles. If nozzles are missing or deflected you will need to perform cleaning cycles to recover these nozzles. Once all missing nozzles are recovered try printing your document again.
If no nozzles are missing or deflected, check that you are using the correct driver settings for the type of media you're printing on. Also try printing at a higher resolution and turning high-speed (bi-directional) printing off.

The most common cause of vertical banding is over-saturation of the media, usually created by paper "rippling". To correct this effect, decrease the saturation and lower the paper suction. If vertical banding is still apparent print the image with high speed off (uni-directional). If this corrects the issue, align the print head, as described on page 5-6 of the Users Guide.

Poor print quality, not fully black with white lines through text/images.


The white lines are caused by some CLOGGED ink-jets that are not spraying the ink onto the paper at the appropriate time.

Start the Epson printer-software, and run a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", to try to UNCLOG those ink-jets.

Epson 9800 wont print large images


Hi,

make sure that the printer is not managing color by selecting "off (no color adjustment)" in the Printer Color Management option of the printer settings.

Could be a head clog, could be ink starvation, could be head overheating...

How old is it ... ?

Lines in print?


It could be that the module unit of the 7600 needs to be replaced. If you don't want to pay for that, you could try cleaning off the wiper blade in the cleaning unit. You can kind of reach that from through the front door, but it is better to remove the side panel. The wiper blade will get ink built up on it, causing it not to clean well.
Also, when doing a cleaning, run it about eight times. After each cleaning, run a nozzle check. This causes the 7600 to do a more thorough cleaning job.
