I've had many problems with Epson print heads getting clogged with ink. They don't remove easily and are not easy to manually clean.

Give this a read. It should explain everything and how to clean it inexpensively.

I would still recommend going with a new WiFi printer. My preference is HP because they support drivers for many different Operating Systems. Not just Windows and are very friendly when printing from Android or IPhone.

This is a 12 year old machine, so time to retire it. Yours is beyond economical repair. Technology moves on, quality is better and now wireless printers are so much neater.

Service and support

Epson Stylus r220 prints with white lines... i installed a CIS and it worked fine for about 6 months, now i'm getting prints with white lines (or fine spots) i tried nozzle check, which comes out good......


Nozzle check must perfect for perfect output. There are tranversal lines at vertical straight lines that represent same point of head micro piezo. If tranversal lines no clog at all, but vertical straight lines not perfectly straight, the result not good (like horizontal white banding). Check it? Head aligment is for vertical banding. If your result is horizontal banding, you don't need to realign head. It's caused by some residual at the output of head sprayer. So, the spray of ink not straight to paper. Try to print with photo/best photo.

RX500 EPSOM STYLUS PHOTO PRINTER Won't Print


I used some less expensive generic ink cartridges on my RX500 and had a similar experience with the black. If you're already using the Epson brand, done the head cleaning, realignment and nozzel checks, I'm not much help. Try Epson's support at their web site.
