Anoterh Vertical Line Problem!

I am having the exact same problem as pchowdhry with vertical lines through my prints on my Epson 2200. I am interested in trying Inky's solution of gently lifting up the bar, but I do not know how to set the printer as if I were going to print a CD. How do I do that? (I didn't even know I could print CDs! Does this mean I can print photo labels on them? I would love to know how to do that!) Thanks, TW

Re: Anoterh Vertical Line Problem!

So many questions Vertical lines suggest [you do mean vertical do you - up/and down?] is new one to me try Printing CD's is not a 2200 thing, it is the province of the R series. Printing lables is easy purchase CD labels and suitable CD print software - A kit including labels software and label applicator is available at many computer stores Other labels- download the Avery-Dennison free lable software.

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.

Vertical print residue left about half inch past the longest line printed

inside the front cover, under where the head parks, you will find a vertical wiper. Clean it.

Power off. open front door. push down cutter (blue) and slide head to the left. To the right of the cleaning pad is the wiper. clean with rubbing alcohol on both sides.

Run a normal cleaning.

All set
NOTE: you do not need to put the head back in place. when you power on it will automaticly park itself

Epson 9800 Prints black dotted vertical line

This is a workaround - I too need a definitive answer. Symptom: black dotted vertical line 1/2 to 3/4" from leftmost image edge. I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh

Vertical bars through printout

Look closely at the marks on the print, and in particular the distance between the lines. Now look into the printer through the paper exit path. Take note of the metal star wheels. Does the distance between the lines match that of the distance between the star wheels? If so then the plate that the start wheels are mounted into may have dropped. You can remedy this by gently lifting the plate back up by hand. Set the machine as if you where going to print a CD and simply lift the start wheel plate at each end. Do not force it or apply too much pressure. Ease it up and then try it again. If it needs more adjustment repeat and check again. If the marks appear to be caused bu ink on one set of rollers or another, pass a really thick piece of card (like off the back of an A4 refill pad) through the paper path. Spray the rollers with a cleaning solution or windowlene (windex) and then pass the card through. This will help to clean off any ink. Again you can repeat this process as neccessary. Let us know if this helps before rating - if it does not I may have more info
