Question about Epson 1000 ICS All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Everything I print is underlined

Eveything I print is underlined. This just started happening for no reason about a month ago. I have checked printer settings, alignment, cleaned the nozzles, and heads etc. (though you can tell it is NOT stray ink or anything) It is ask if "something" is telling the printer to underline everything. I have searched manuals and online support and cannot find the help I need to make these lines go away. I reset my computer to before it started and it fixed the problem for a day then it went right back to underlining. I tried another restore to that earlier date and it did not fix the problem. I am pulling my hair out! Any suggestion????????
HELP! :)

Re: Everything I print is underlined

To determine if it is the printer, try these :

>windows test page (printers & faxes, printer's properties page)

>self-test ;
Please perform the following steps to ensure your printer is physically functioning.

1) Disconnect the printer cable that is connecting printer to the computer, by unclipping or unplugging it from the back of the printer.

2) Turn the printer ON by holding down the POWER button for about 3 seconds.

3) Load A4 or LETTER size paper in the sheet feeder on the back of the printer.

4) Press the MENU button on the control panel until NOZZLE CHECK appears. Press the COPY button.

5) The printer will print a pattern displaying a number and a nozzle pattern with black & color. Examine the nozzle check pattern that has printed. Each staggered horizontal line and straight vertical line should be complete.

Canon MX860 prints crooked!

Does this happen when printing from the cassette (bottom tray), or the sheet feeder in the back, or both? Check that the paper guides are set snugly (touching but not buckling the paper) against the edges of the paper.

Prints purple instead of black on photos only

My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!

Ricoh CL3500N - not printing all characters on the page

It might be a print driver problem. I think there several different drivers. Go to and download all the drivers for the operating system you are using and try them. If there is a rpcs driver that might be your best bet.

Printing problem

Try to clean the light sensor inside the printer, you will see a white led on the top part of the case, match it to the bottom you will see a small hole on a plastic peice, that is the hole for the sensor.

Placing one sheet at atime is worse usually as these units feed off a minimum level. Keep them topped up to at least no less than 10 sheets. The printers sound like the have a paper feeding issue. Could be a jam. Open unit, check for paper jam. Cheers lilacgerry xxx
