    Have you used the printer's software the try and run a clean on the carts? If so, this is a problem with epson printers as the printhead is integrated into the printer instead of the cartridge and will wear out eventually. Answer back, and if the software clean doesn't work, there is something else you can do...

XP-310 Changed black ink cartridge it now prints the bottom half of the 1st line, prints the next 4 lines and then 1/2 the next then prints the next 4 lines


Sometimes when you change ink carts on Epson printers, you can trap some air in the print head. Let the printer sit overnight, and then run a "head cleaning" followed by a "nozzle check". You can repeat the head cleaning up to 3 times before it doesn't really help any more.

Epson workforce 610 printing improperly


have the printer being discussed in this thread.... the Epson WorkForce 610. I just encountered the same issue, many lines were missing from the page that I wanted to print. Ink levels were fine, but every time I try to print the same thing, the same lines were missing. I read through the solutions mentioned above and I decided to see what the printer had in its maintenance toolbox on the printer itself.

Here's a solution that worked for me!

1. Go to "Setup"
2. Under Setup, select "Maintenance"
3. Select "Head Cleaning"

The printer does the head cleaning automatically. Print another page, all of the lines should show up!

Simple, no need to buy another printer or clean the ribbon...

I have a NX 400 and replaced the ink with Epson cartridges but now the pages have white lines across the page .I have replced the ink many times before and this has never happened . Thank You , Don


The print head appears to have plugged ink jets in several positions or maybe the ribbon cable to the head is damaged in some way. Try cleaning the print head from the software. If no help, try cleaning the head face with rubbing alcohol. Beyond this, you may need professional help. Hope this helps!

The top half of letters on certain lines of print are offset by about half a letter space from the bottm half of the letters. Usually but not always the same lines. help please


This usually indicates a need for a new print cartridge or the printer head is dirty. You can run the automatic printer cleaning utilities. Note: do them several times.
Also, if you are a little handy, use Qtips and rubbing alcohol and clean the print head.

Need to clean print head. some lines are blurred


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.

Everytime I print everything is smeared. I can't understand the words. Epson styluss nx 400


Do a printer check first. Print a nozzle check pattern. If you see any gaps or breaks or missing colors on the pattern, clean the printhead.
Possible paper setting issue too. Make sure that you are selecting the correct paper type on the print settings page.

Smearing my printouts


Possible that the printhead got affected when it jammed the paper.
Take all the cartridges out and put them all back into the printer. Let it charge like it normally does.
Print a nozzle check pattern if you see any gaps or breaks or any missing lines on the pattern, clean the printhead.

You need to clean the print head on the cartridges , please follow these steps\
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.

1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.

# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
