Question about Epson WorkForce WF-2540 All-in-One Inkjet Printer

1 Answer

I just bought a brand new printer a couple months ago. It recently started only printing every other or every couple lines of print. If I type up a letter it will print one line and then skip a line. There are all new ink cartridges so what could the problem be?

Do a head cleaning at least 3 times and then print a test page and see what you get. Also in printer settings see if you are on "Default" or you changed it somehow........

SOURCE: epson 440 won't print

The ink dried up in the print head. A printer should be used at least every two weeks to keep from drying up the ink. You may have to replace the print head or have it serviced.
This is not much help. Bud

SOURCE: Black lines printing through words on printer.

Have you tried printing a Nozzle Check using only the printer - this eliminates problems caused by the computer. Have a look at the online guide at:

http://support.epson-europe.com/onlineguides/en/sc60/index.htm

Choose Maintenance - Checking the Print Head Nozzles - Using the Control Panel Buttons, and follow the instructions to produce a nozzle check printout.

Does this produce your lines? If not - the problem lies with your computer. If it does, you need to have your printer checked out by a technician since it appears you have some sort of ink leak from your print head..

SOURCE: Brand new Epson black ink cartridge won't print

Leaving an inkjet for two weeks with an empty cartridge is a definite way to get clogged printheads. Try doing 4 to 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with anozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:

Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Hope this helps.
Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.

SOURCE: MY PRINTER IS NOT PRINTING CORRECTLY

you need to use the head cleaning tool in the printer properties, youll need to keep running it untill it runs clear and it uses alot of your ink while it does it.

youll find the cleaning option if you go to your
start/settings/printers and faxes, right click on your printer and go to printer preferences then maintinence

Hi wolst, try updating your printer drivers:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop. Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done

Photo printing problems


Try to manually clean the printer head. Take a cotton cloth and dab a little bit of alcohol (like whiskey) and then clean the printer head & the cartridges with it. Do remember it is a delicate process and if you messup, you might damage the printer/cartridges. So be careful & lemme know the result.
