HI there,

May I know the model# that you have?

Initially the print head alignment was available on the printer maintenance software installed on your pc.

  1. Go to Printer & Faxes
  2. Select and right click the printer installed on your unit that you need to re align the print head
  3. Select Properties
  4. Printer dialogue box will appear
  5. Click on the Maintenance tab, there you will see the different types of maintenance tools.
Note: This procedure will vary depending on what printer model you have.

Just let me know for further clarifications.

Why after installing new ink cartridges, the system says to realign scanner. never saw this before.

Realignment procedure is typical when replacing ink cartridges. It is a pretty straight-forward process and takes only a few moments. Most printers provided detailed instructions on the alignment page it prints - otherwise Google your printer for instructions. Alignment ensures that there are no gaps or white lines in text or images.

Replacing ink on an epsom wf7010 with generic ink

Try Genuine Epson cartridges and if the white strips disappear then you know it's the generic carts. If not then clean the printer heads, if that doesn't do it then get a new printer.

Have just installed a new black ink cartridge. message tells me to realign the print head How do I do that?

You could clean the black ink cartridge. For this you need to remove the black ink cartridge which is present in the printer. In order to clean the laser or scanner block you could use a cotton swab as it would fully clean the dirt. You need to clean the grime and the dried ink present in the printer. This would remove all the hindrances which prevent the ink from flowing. Cleaning the printer heads would also help to solve the problem.

I keep getting a couple of streaks across my printed image, as if the ink skips over these areas. I've tried cleaning and realigning the heads, as well as printing with the high speed printing mode...

A problem with the ink cartridge.

Sometimes, after some refills with the cartridge and those resets procedures for the printer to stop detecting the ink volume... the cartridge really will be on its last leg.

If after flushing the ink cartridge in a tap water and soaking it in a mixture of ammonia and water will not clear the print head of the cartridge to let the ink out proportionally..... the very last option is to replace the cartridge with new one.

I hope that helps.

The ink light is blinking orange and the printer will not take in paper and print but the ink cartridges are about half full.

Reset the ink cartridges by taking them out and reinserting them! Make sure the ink in the cartridges is liquid. that should solve the ink light problem.
If the printer does not take the paper, try realigning the paper in the paper loader so the printer sensors knows its there. Hope this helps:)
