White bands on my prints

I have been having issues with my epson stylus photo 2200. It has printed beautifully until recently, when i started getting a white band down the left side of the print. I have cleaned the print heads which has, not surprisingly, not fixed the problem--it doesn't look like a dirty print head issue. any suggestions?

Did you try cleaning the decoder strip? It is located behind the print head, looks like the tape inside a cassette tape. If it has ink splatter or a smudge on it carefully wipe it down with a paper towel (damp). It may be easier to remove it, careful not to stretch the little spring on the left side.

My Epson 2200 prints leaving horz bands about every 1/2 inch. I have not usrd the printer for over a year but did install allnew ink.


Your print head probably has crusted ink on it, as the heads are built into Epsons. If you have tried cleaning, deep cleaning, and then priming (the last 2 aren't available on all Epsons), and it is still banding, you have 2 options:
Disassemble the printer and soak the head in alcohol and hope it works OR get a new printer.
Heads on an Epson are too expensive to bother swapping out.

Epson 2200 - vertical lines


I don't know if this will help as my printer is a different model (the epson stylus photo r280) but I have been battling the vertical line issue for weeks, ever since getting a new imac. I am printing altered photos from photoshop on epson ultra premium matte photo paper. After trying every conceivable setting, and spending an hour with less than helpful tech support from epson (where they insisted I needed to download new drivers) I just resolved it this morning at last by increasing the dpi setting on the print function to beyond what I would normally use(1440x 1440 rather than what I had been using at 720).

The prints came out great at last!

On my older computer with this same printer the prints came out fine at the lower setting. But for some reason it appears that the higher setting is now necessary to eliminate those dreaded lines.

I hope this helps.

Inkjet photo printing


This may sound idiotic, but print out a nozzle check pattern in your maintenance tab. Good chance you have a clogged printhead. Check out how to do a print head cleaning and what solutions and tools you'll need. Careful if you're using compatible inks or refilled cartridges, or long expired ink.

This one works great for me. Go GENTLY, best not to use Windex or any unauthorized solutions, as they may cause damage to plastic parts.
