Poor printing quality with my Epson stylus C 66

I purchased this printer 2 or 3 years ago and I never really used it a lot,I just reinstalled it after not having used it for one year. The installation is correct and ready to use,I put some new cartridges but the printing (I mainly print musical sheets) is not perfect, some lines are missing,the allignement seems o.k though.Of course I got help from some infos on line and I cleaned the head several times as suggested from the manual but the result is still the same,no improvement,what should I do?
Many thank's.

Re: poor printing quality with my Epson stylus C 66

If it sat for a long time, then  some of the nozzels are probably clogged.  Running the clean feature helps, but it probably won't work a hundred percent.  The best way is to disassemble the whole thing, take the printhead out, and clean the nozzels with a sopping wet cloth.  That takes some doing, and there's no manual to tell you just gotta tinker till you can get it apart.

If that still doesn't help, it's probably shot.

I changed black ink cartridge and now pages that are printed are really poor quality and really hard to see...faded in color and sometimes smeared in some spots. Help.

Try going into the menu and cleaning your print heads. If that doesn't work, take out the cartridge and using a cotton swab and alcohol, clean the print heads.

Someone please help me!

Hi Emma,
It sounds like your PC is printing to draft everytime, have you checked your printer settings within Control Panel, Printers? If nothing stands out to you then probably best thing to do is a reinstall of the printer driver, 99% of the time this will sort it.

If this has helped you then please rate me!
