It sounds like either one the print cartridges is faulty or the printer needs cleaning. If you installed refurfurbished cartridges, they would be highly suspect. There are utilities available with most printers these days that can test these things for you. They are usually installed with your printer's software.
I recommend changing the printer cartidges one at a time and see if this fixes it. I also recommend loading the most current printer drivers and utilities from the printer manufacturer's website and running the cleaning utilities found under the the printer's utility icon after you install the software.

Let us know how it goes.

Print a self-test report
1. Load A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
2. Press and hold the Cancel button and then press the Start Copy Color button.
The product prints a self-test report, which might indicate the source of the printing problem.
3. Make sure the test patterns show a complete grid and the thick color lines are complete.
• If more than a few lines in a pattern are broken, this might indicate a problem with the nozzles. You might need to clean the print cartridges.
• If the black line is missing, faded, streaked, or shows lines, this might indicate a problem with the black or photo print cartridge in the right slot.
• If any of the color lines are missing, faded, streaked, or show lines, this might indicate a problem with the tri-color print cartridge in the left slot.

Puts a black ink line down the back side of the paper when printing fades after it prints about 5 sheets


This is usually a piece of paper stuck in the machine after a paper has gotten jammed. look carefully around the area where the printing is done and near the exit slot.

Printing won't work.


Good day sir/maam, hi, when you test print it usually prints letters and no lines are printed. try first if the printer is setup to economy/draft or pictures, if lines are faded, the ink cartridges maybe dirty. manual cleaning is needed, the ink path starts from the ink cartridge to the cradle or carrier then to paper. so any dried ink that blocks the path can affect the printout. you can use warm water to loosen dried ink. remove the cartridges and cradle from the printer as you clean them.

Dell printers are junk. But you have put a lot of money into this thing. Check the alignment of the black drum, could be that something is keeping if off track a little bit.

Mac leopard -epson tx400 - printer grabs paper - printer very noisy, desk shakes with vibration - now the print on paper is faded help!!


Hello, sorry to hear you are having trouble,
So, are we to understand that your printer did not shake with vibrations and make a lot of noise before ?
Most of these ink jet printers have heads that travel very quickly and abruptly from side to side causing shaking and vibrations, especially if it is on a light weight desk or table, sometimes to the point of almost throwing itself right off the table. This is a normal state for the printer to be in.
Then, you say the paper is printed on, it goes right through to the end, no paper jam, but the colors are faded...
How often do you print on this printer ? Sometimes, the Epson print head dry up and only small amounts of ink get through even though the system indicates that the ink is full...
You can certainly perform a head cleaning operation, I recommend doing it several (3) times to be sure, unfortunately, it's a terrible wast of ink.
Finally, have you replace the ink cartridges? If you get a faded output with new cartridges, you may have inadvertently activated the ink saving or draft mode, go through you page set-up or printer option thoroughly.
I'm pretty sure something here will get you out of this mess.

Try printing out the test page from the printer, this will show you if any of the inkjet holes are getting plugged. If you can't print a test page without the skipping try changing the ink cartridge(s), the test page will show you which one is clogging.
