My epson 434 is only printing partial lines, or 1 line and not the next, its not even a year old, how can i fix this

You need to do a head clean it could take several goes to fully clear.
To do a HEAD CLEAN go in to Maintenance settings then click on HEAD CLEAN
After this it should offer to do CHECK NOZZLE print or this can also be found in Maintenance settings.
All the colours should print perfect lines with no breaks in them.
It is an ink eater so only do as you need.
Let me know how it goes.
Regards Craig

Head cleaning is for fixing horizontal band. If some point of head cloged, print out will show horizoantal banding. For vertical banding, try using head alignment. Have yo tried printing without high speed (disable high speed option)

Jagged lines on paper

You did not say how much printing you do. A year old printer that is heavily used can have quite a buildup of ink. It may need the entire paper path and mylar strip professionally cleaned. It's not a big deal, but the printer covers do have to be removed. This is best accomplished by an Epson Certified technician, usually employed by one or more of your computer dealers or sometimes office supply retailers.

If you bought the printer locally, I'd first try there. If you purchased it from Epson Direct or from another online retailer, try Best Buy, Office Depot, or perhaps Staples. If they do not provide such service themselves, they may have a recommendation for a reputable business that does.

My epson cx6400 printer won't print it not been use for several

I'm not sure what you mean by not printing, is it trying to print but only blank pages?

Make sure its on and the "!" is off.

Try copying first using the unit itself since this is an all in one printer. If it prints then we know its working.
If scanner is not working you can try printing without using the scanner featured on the unit. press on the setup button use the left or right arrow repeatedly and select on nozzle check then press on the color button.

If it prints but the pattern is incomplete (gaps or breaks on the lines) you can try head cleaning.

Press setup use the arrow left or right repeatedly and select on head cleaning then press on the color button then it will clean it.
Make sure that everytime you clean it you have to print on a nozzle check so that you will know that it prints properly.
If there are no gaps or breaks on the lines print on a document or picture it will give you good printouts

Very Faint Printouts

I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

Blank pages are indicative ofdried ink.

If the printer has not been used for a long time ink may have settled and dried in the heads.

You may need to replace the cartridges (IF they are very old) and run several head cleanings if there is no improvement.

I typicall try to print a few test pages to see if some of the color work.
