The following solution is under the assumption you have installed the complete software via the supplied CD with your Epson Printer.

Windows:
Right-click the printer icon on your taskbar (in the lower right corner of your screen).
Select Head Cleaning.

Note:
If you don’t see the icon, go to your printer properties window and click the Maintenance tab, then select Head Cleaning.

How do I get my Canon Pixma ip7220 printer to stop printing blurred lines?


Hello, my name is Steve.

This is an early sign of print head failure.

Soon it will give you an error code on display or ill be observed on your computer. The print head nozzles are not firing correctly. The only way to remedy this is to:

1. Have the printer serviced and cleaned ( the cost of the new print head and a cleaning and servicing of the printer

2. Order the print head online and install it yourself. The wonders of the internet can find an give you a video of how to do this.

The part number is: Canon QY6-0082-000 Printhead (Canon QY60082000 Printhead) I hope this helps, Steve

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blurred pictures


ok..first you will need to print the nozzle check and see if all the color are printed out fine.. this feature is under the printer properties , under the utility tab.... assuming all your colors nozzle are printed fine..then the next thing for you to do is do the Print Head Alignment.. it's under the same place where you print the nozzle check.. when you press the Print Head Alignment, it will print a page out with many lines.. choose the one with the best alignment.. once u done that..try printing the image again..
oh..if your nozzle check print out is not good.. then you will need to perform head cleaning to clear the clogged head..

Not printing clearly some lines are blurred


You should run a nozzle check to verify if the heads are printing all the inks correctly. If the pattern is incomplete you need to run head cleanings.

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color


Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

Double Blurry Print


Usually hairs sticking to the underside of the print head causes this.

I gave a solution to an Epson CX6400 user who needed to physically clean his print head. Look this up in the solutions. It involves using folded kitchen roll under the print head with the printer switched off and the head unlocked and free floating.

It would take me ages to type this again so please look this up.

The user had jammed paper and cleared the jam but had paper stuch to the underside of his print head.

I hope this helps.

Print result at 1st line ok..2nd line become blur..its alternate till end of printing


Replace the ink cartridge.
The cartridge is so wide that it can print 2 lines at a time, and the upper part of it is probably partially clogged. That's why every 2'nd line is blurred, and the rest is ok.
