While printing in black, why are there faint ink smudges?


It could be the "clean print head" sponges. The area under where the print head sits is where the ink go during the head cleaning cycle. They can become saturated with ink and smear onto the print head and then onto the paper.

5x7 inch paper moves towards end of print and black ink smudges edge of paper


Check for any small paper jam. Check the rollers, also use an alcohol swab to clean the rollers and check for ink leaking. Check you ink pad, it could be time for a new one.

My officejet pro 8500A prints black vertical lines down the page when I make a copy. I have cleaned and aligned the printheads. What else can I do?


Happened with me too. Turned out to be a small sticky smudge on the ADF glass. That is the smaller glass scan area to the left of the large glass scanning area.
When using the ADF to scan or copy, make sure the smaller glass area is clean along with the rollers.

My Epson 1290s is printing with lines running through, less than a centimetre apart. the lines are always in colour, and even occur on black and white printing. the lines always appear to be magenta.


Go to your printer settings and navigate to the "Maintenance" options. Run the options for alignment and nozzle checks. If this does not work, the print heads may need to be cleaned, especially if the printer has not been used for a while. You will have to remove the ink heads and use alcohol to clean them if you feel comfortable doing so. Otherwise, it may be cheaper just to go out and buy a new printer if the print heads are defective.

Too much toner on paper which then smudges


Try reducing the print resolution using the menu buttons. Does it smudge with coloured prints? If so then the fuser unit is faulty. If it is only black that smudges it is likely to be the K Developer unit. Ensure that you are using genuine toners, not refills or third party as the quality of toner can cause similar results.

Banding only when printing with black cartridge.


Print at a higher resolution. Not ideal - but if you print at a photo or photo RPM mode the printer will make more passes over the sheet... If this doesn't work, consider updating your drivers.

Epson 1290s printer


Have you set the paper size correctly? If you try to print on A4 and the printer is set to "letter" - which is the default for a number of printers. Also check that "Borderless" is selected in the driver.

Epson Stylus CX5000 blurry or smudged printing


epson uses pigmented ink and compatibles use dyes and thus if the paper is not of good quality then you can have this problem.

do the following

change the paper and try.

As there will be ink in the head and the ink feed tubes , print some 10 -15 copies of all color prints so that the original ink starts to get into the head and then the paper.

this should solve your problem

Also use your printer every 2 -3 days if you dont have any prints then give a noozle check and then switch off the printer. This will avoid the printer from doing a head clean very time you switch on the printer and also the ink will give you more output as there is less amount of head cleaning

bye
