Question about Epson Stylus Photo R220 InkJet Printer
How do i print a test page without hooking it up to a computer?
Go here, and you can download a manual that has detailed instructions. Here are the instructions from the reference guide problem solver:
Running a printer operation check
If you are unable to determine the source of the problem, performing a printer operation check can help you determine whether the problem comes from the printer or the computer.
To print a printer operation check page, follow these steps.
Make sure both the printer and computer are turned off. Disconnect the cable from the printer's interface connector, then turn on the printer. Make sure that Letter size plain paper is loaded in the sheet feeder, the CD/DVD tray is not inserted into the printer, and the CD/DVD guide is closed.
Compare the quality of the printed check page with the sample shown below. If there are no print quality problems, such as gaps or missing segments in the test lines, the printer itself is fine and the problem probably lies with the printer software settings, the application print test page - 36p_good.gife interface cable (be sure to use a shielded cable), or the computer itself.
If the check page does not print satisfactorily as shown below, there is a problem with the printer. For example, if aprint test page - 36p_ng.gif of the printed lines is missing, this could mean a clogged ink nozzle or a misaligned print head.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
