Run or performa maintenance page..


Perform a nozzle check page.
- Make sure that the printer is turned off.
- Hold down the maintenance button and press the power button to turn on the printer. Release only the power button first. When the nozzle check starts, release the maintenance button.

pls let me know if it solve the problem..

My Epson 1290s is printing with lines running through, less than a centimetre apart. the lines are always in colour, and even occur on black and white printing. the lines always appear to be magenta.


Go to your printer settings and navigate to the "Maintenance" options. Run the options for alignment and nozzle checks. If this does not work, the print heads may need to be cleaned, especially if the printer has not been used for a while. You will have to remove the ink heads and use alcohol to clean them if you feel comfortable doing so. Otherwise, it may be cheaper just to go out and buy a new printer if the print heads are defective.

Hi, When printing photos, my photos have horizontal light coloured lines across them. When I print the nozzle check pattern all colours match the guide with the exception of the light magenta....


Epsons are notorious for this sort of problem, especially in used infrequently as ink residue dries on the print head; try using a cleaning cartridge, or swab around relevant print head with cotton bud and ethanol/isopropyl alcohol. Here are examples of cleaning carts, there are others http://www.internet-ink.co.uk/epson-cleaning-cartridges/ http://www.icompinkcartridges.co.uk/epson-r200-r300-r220-r320-r340-cleaning-kit.html

What do I have to do if I want to use sublimation ink on Epson stylus photo 1290?Thanks


what you want is not possible. the Epson Stylus Photo 1290 does not use sublimation ink. it is strongly advised to only use genuine Epson ink to keep the print quality of your print head as high as possible.

Ink cartridges come off carriage


I'm not too familiar with the 12xx family of printers, but sounds to me like you have broken the print head track arm. Look carefully at the side that has come off the track. The traditional Epson print head design is to have the top track arm as part of the print head, and the bottom track arm as part of the print head carrier. The print head and carrier clip together thus providing a closed arm over the track rail. The key question is, have you merely unclipped the print head and carrier? If so all you need to do is position the upper and lower jaws over the track and push the print head and carrier parts together until they click. Alternatively, is a lower or upper jaw missing? In which case, one or other is broken - disaster I'm afraid.

Remember, I'm talking about generic Epson design of the 1290 vintage. I have the 1290 service manual, which is of the usual Epson rubbishy standard, but it's not the same as having actually dismantled one, which I haven't. However, if you look carefully at the side of the print head that's come off the track rail, you should be able to spot if anything is missing i.e. broken off.

Lines on prints


Hi kids! I decided to have another go at sorting out my 'lines' problem and have sorted it. See if this might work for you: I had previously done the head cleaning via the printer itself - holding the central ink/paper black button for 3 secs. This time I went to the Epson 1290 window on my Mac and clicked on the utility box. Though the Nozzle check print came out fine I went ahead and did the head cleaning in this box. The next print came out almost perfect so I ran the Head cleaning again and it printed a perfect print. Hope this might work for you. Keep on trying! All the best. Trant
