Normally, you lift the scanner/copy bed up while the unit is on and then the cartridge moves to the center.

Have you tried this and if so without success? let me know so I can find the secret if there is one for you.

Okay. After some internetz scouring, I found a solution for what I was experiencing. The problem is probably that your print options are optimized for speed and not quality. Check out this link to see Epson's solution: http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/pho140/pho14000rf/wwhelp/wwhimpl/common/html/wwhelp.htm?context=Epson&file=Probsolv.5.1.html#1023833

Troubleshooting

  1. Clear all print jobs waiting to be printed from the computer before turning off the printer. To fully clear all print jobs you will need to restart the computer. See the following Related Articles if you require help with this step:
  2. Once you have cancelled the print queue and restarted the computer, hold down the button-paper_trash.gif Paper/Bin/Cancel button or dx4400stopbutton.jpg Stop / Clear button for 3-5 seconds.
  3. Power off the printer/All-In-One. After it has powered off, also turn it off at the power point or disconnect its power cable, if possible.
  4. Open the printer lid/scanner unit to make sure any tape securing the ink cartridge holder/print head has been removed. Some printers have a plastic block which helps prevent the ink cartridge holder from moving during transit - make sure that this has been removed/is not in place.
  5. Check for any foreign objects inside the printer that may be causing an obstruction to the print head. Check for torn pieces of paper around the front of the printer and the ink cartridge holder/print head. Carefully remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path and inside the printer by hand.
  6. Check that the ink cartridge holder/print head is positioned on the right side of the printer (as you look at it from the front). If it is positioned on the left, see the following Related Article: How can I resolve the issue where the print head positions itself on the left / does not return to its home position?
  7. Close the printer cover/scanner unit. Press the On button to power on the product. If the error message still appears, contact your dealer or EPSON.

Printing horizontal solid lines across paper - have done all diagnostic testing but still solid lines across paper.


Hi

Well it is possible that the nozzles are clogged. You did good in troubleshooting the issue, normally head cleaning cycle will resolve that, but if it fails and out of warranty. Best suggestion is to get a new one since head cleaning cycle from printer settings will consume a lot of ink and not a guarantee to work in printers behaving like what you are getting when printing.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.


Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Epsom stylus C66 inkjet printer


Hi

This problem is probably caused by a blockage in the ink waste pads. Over time, particularly with increased nozzle cleans the pads get saturated. These can be replaced by an Epson Engineer at a cost of about £30-£40 but probably more effective to buy a new printer. This usually happens when the printer is between 2-5 years old.

Hope this helps

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
