When I print a photo, vertical lines appear throughout the photo. The ink cartridges are new. No error message appears on screen.


Hello,

Please state the model of your printer.

Vertical lines appears on prints because the nozzles on your print head are blocked, it doesn't means all nozzles but some of your nozzles are blocked. A print head of an inkjet consists of many tiny little pores or nozzles, through which jets of inks are sprayed on the photo paper to create an image, if some of this tiny pores are blocked print outs deteriorates, so cleaning the print head is an option if your printer has print head inside the printer you can first clean it through the head cleaning option present in the maintainence tab of your printer software, for printers that have print head on the cartridges, you can add a few drops of isopropryl alcohol on the print head and leave it for a minute and put it back on the printer and run the head cleaning utility of your printer software.

Hope this helps you.

Ink not showing when printing


You may need to perform a head clean especially if the printer hasn't been used for a while.

The following is for XP but Vista and Win7 should be similar.

Click start/printers and faxes, right click on your printer ans select Printing Preferences from the drop down box.

Select the Maintainance tab click on head clean and follow that up with a nozzle check test page.

You may have to perform several head clean processes, once you get a clear nozzle check test page printed you should be good to go.

TIP use only one page for the nozzle checks as each check uses a page, Just reload the paper again until satisfied.

Photos print with a faint 'pinstripe' effect


that could be head alignment (most noticible on low quality settings .. there is a procedure for aligning the heads ... or it could be clogged nozzles
to check these things start to print something
then select preferences .. then maintainence then
you have a choice .. nozzle check should be done first .. if all nozzles are working then go to "head alignment" and follow instructions there .. if some nozzles are not working then run the "cleaning" utility . sometimes it needs to do that several times .. if you cant get all nozzles working then you can try "deep cleaning" that uses lots of ink so you dont want to do that often ... if that doesnt work then you need new heads .. the heads in many pixma printers are easily replacable but costly ..
if all the nozzles are working and head alignment was done but you still have faint lines then try "high quality mode" .. in that mode you should not see any lines ..

My prints are red with lines Why


Cleaning an ink-jet printer can solve minor problems, maintain print quality, and prolong periods between professional cleanings. Thin white lines across printouts indicate that the ink nozzles need to be cleaned.
  1. p 1 Collect the supplies you need: a soft cloth and cleaning fluid made for plastic. (Water is fine in most cases.)
  2. Step 2 Check the printer manual. If the manufacturer has provided specific instructions, follow them.
  3. Step 3 Turn off the printer.
  4. Step 4 Dampen the cloth with water or cleaning fluid.
  5. Step 5 Wipe the outside of the printer, making sure that no fluid gets inside.
  6. Cleaning Cartridges or Ink Nozzles
  7. Step 1 Use the cleaning buttons on your printer if it has them.
  8. Step 2 Initiate cleaning through the printer software.
  9. Step 3 Open the printer software by double-clicking on a printer icon or opening a document and then selecting Print from the File menu.
  10. Step 4 Click a button labeled Options, Troubleshooting, Clean Print Cartridges, Toolbox, Printer Utilities or something similar. (This varies by manufacturer.)
  11. Step 5 Click a button labeled Head Cleaning, Run Nozzle Check, Clean Print Cartridges or something similar to begin the process.
  12. Step 6 Follow the instructions on your screen.
  13. Step 7 Repeat the cleaning process if the results aren't satisfactory.
  14. Step 8 Go to your printer manufacturer's Web site for detailed instructions on manual cartridge cleaning and interior cleaning.

My printer catridgers change but indicater show no catridgers


Hi there,

Remove and re-seat, ( while plugged in ) this is safe to do.

Then go to...

File, print,preferences,maintainance, you have choices in here to
change ink, clean nozzles, clean the head, alignment.
probably needs aligning.

Should be good after these checks.

I have replaced my cartridges, how do I perform a nozzle check


Download the user guide from epson:
http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=72185&infoType=Overview
To do a print head clean do this:
Firstly note that this won't work if you have any error lights on.
Turn on the printer.
Press the Setup Mode (screwdriver) button to enter the Setup Mode.
Press the A (top left of the LCD Screen) or one of the Arrow buttons repeatedly until "Head Cleaning" (or Nozzle Check)
appears on the LCD screen, and then press the Color button.
Cleaning of the print head starts and "Head cleaning" appears on the LCD screen. After each clean
perform a nozzle check to confirm that the head is clean and to reset the cleaning cycle.
Note:
If the print quality has not improved after repeating this procedure four or five times, turn this
product off and leave it alone overnight. Then repeat head cleaning and nozzle checks if necessary.
If the print quality still has not improved, you may need a third party head cleaning fluid, just try googling for "inkjet head cleaning fluid".
To maintain the print quality, you should print a few pages at least once a month.
Please take a moment to rate this solution. Thanks.

Black ink not printing


You have to run a head cleaning cycle:
Follow these steps to clean the print head:

  1. Make sure the Stylus CX is on and the cp_light_183_er.gif ink light is off.

  2. Hold down the cp_button_48_er.gif ink button for 3 seconds until the cp_light_1.gif On light starts flashing. The Stylus CX runs a head cleaning cycle and the cp_light_1.gif On light flashes.

    alert_caution.gif Caution: Never turn off the Stylus CX while head cleaning is in progress. You may damage it.

  3. When the cp_light_1.gif On light stops flashing, turn off the Stylus CX.

  4. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.

  5. Press the cp_button_48_er.gif ink and cp_button_1.gif On buttons together and hold them down for about 3 seconds. The Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern, which includes a nozzle check. Shown below are some examples of what the nozzle check may look like:

    Nozzle check pattern with no gaps im_158_er.gif Nozzle check pattern with gaps im_159_er.gif

  6. Examine the nozzle check. If it does not look like the nozzle check pattern with no gaps as shown above, repeat steps 2 through 6.

alert_note.gif Note: If you don't see any improvement after cleaning the print head three times, turn off the Stylus CX and wait overnight. This lets any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning the print head again.

If you do not use your Stylus CX often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality.
