Follow the steps below to clean the print head using the Head Cleaning utility.
Make sure that the printer is turned on and the ink out light is off. Access the printer software. Click the Maintenance tab, then click the Head Cleaning button. Follow the on-screen instructions. The power light flashes while the printer performs the cleaning cycle. Never turn off the printer while the power light is flashing. Doing so may damage the printer. When the power light stops flashing, load a few sheets of paper and click Print Nozzle Check Pattern in the Head Cleaning dialog box to confirm that the print head is clean.

    If all this fails, simply replace the cartridges.

I have feint lines across photos and have done head clean. Epson Stylus photo R220.


Well, here's your problem: that's a six year-old printer. I used to have it and and 2007 I replaced it with an Epson Stylus Photo RX595 AIO because like the R220, the RX595 has the ability to print directly onto inkjet printable CD's/DVD's. Your printheads/nozzles are shot and all the cleaning in the world will not fix them and it's certainly won't be cost effective to have repaired when you can get a current model for less than the repair price. Mine went after two years. Honestly, it's amazing that this printer lasted as long as it has. Six years has to be some kind of record.
Here are the current CD/DVD printing models from Epson.

Epson r220 print head goes left and then makes a grinding sound


Your printer needs a service reset. Epson printers will only accept x number of cartridge changes / print head cleans. Basically it's telling you that the waste ink pad is saturated. It will cost about £30.00 from a local service centre

Epson r220 printhead cleaning


Helps to turn the printer off when not in use as the heat tends to dry out the ink. Sometimes the heads just quit and have to be replaced. If you are sure it's just blocked remove it and flush with soft water, then buy some windex window cleaner, make a solution of 100 mls cleaner 200 mls soft water and soak overnight , flush with soft water and shake dry, hope it works.

E-90 error at epson stylus pht 250


I see now that your printer is an Epson Stylus Photo 250. The error E90 is not defined, other than "contact Epson". However, other users have reported that clearing an obstruction fixed the problem. Try this.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head starts to move, pull the power lead out of the printer, or turn it off at the mains. The print head should now be free to move by hand. Gently move it backwards and forwards to see if there is any obstruction. Look into the print head parking area on the right - does anything there appear to be causing an obstruction? Report back.
