    I have an epson stylus rx 580 and every time I try to print a photo from the computer I get evenly spaced vertical black lines through the picture. It does it regardless of the program I am using - I have tried several. I have replace the ink cartridges. It does not do it if I put the memory card into the slot on the printer and use the screen on the printer to select and print the photo. I have tried printing the same photo twice, once from the computer program and immediately following that from the memory card in the slot on the printer. The first time I got the evenly spaced black lines and the second print (from the memory card) did not have the lines. I have tried this multiple times with different photos, different programs and different ink cartridges and I always get the same results. Please help me.

Lines on photo's that i print


Hi,
Usually the refilled cartridge is not guaranteed to print very well. But still the follwowing tips may help you out.
1. Clean the print cartridge nozzles with an ear bud dipped in light water. Dont touch with hands and other materials.
2. Using your printer utility software installed in your machine, activate the clean cartridge functionality (usually HP printers will have such options)
3. Most important tip - Align your print cartridge ( Again using your printer utility software installed in your machine). It will print some sample lines and colors to a paper and you have to enter appropriate details back into the printer utility for proper calibration of your printer. Just follow the steps shown by the printer utility software. This step have to be done even if you install a new cartridge.

If none of the above step solved your problem, then its time to get a new cartridge for your printer.

I hope this is helpful to you :)

Color prints come out too light with lines


Okay, the driver for the printer (hal.dll) needs to be reinstalled.

Do the following:

Press the windows key and R
Type in command
In the command prompt that comes up:
Type in cd C:\Windows\System32
Type in taskkill /f /im "hal.dll"
Type in del hal.dll
Then restart your computer

What taskkill does is kill the printer application that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the printer driver, and the problem will be fixed!

Horizontal lines in pictures


If you are using original cartridges then there should not be a problem. The horizontal lines come from the cartridge. Can you pinpoint if it is a color or black line that is missing? My guess is that during the alignment procedure, you are asked to choose a number or letter that corresponds to picture of a the lines that show the best alignment. If you did this correctly, may I ask how many pictures you printed before seeing that line. Is it on the first print or 10th printing? Cuz if it is on the 5th or more full color picture, then the problem is that you you really have the wrong printer. The F380 capacity for printing full color pictures is miniscule. 1 ml per color. So usually after the 3rd color picture, the ink starts to run out. Let me know if this helps.
