Question about Epson Stylus Photo R260 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Lines Lines Lines

I own a Epson 260 and so far have loved the print outs. Unfortunately now I have fine lines across every printout I do? I have purchased and installed every cartridge as they were low but not out of ink (Still had quarter in each). The lines are still there, I did print nossle cleaning, and countless ink and cartridge checks, but to no avail. I am not sure how to clean the rollers or the rest that is why I am writing to see if this needs to be done. The lines about 2 inches apart from one another and the printer itself I purchased from wallmart about 3months ago. Please help

    I too have lines. No warranty, however. Any idea what the source of the problem is?

Hi when i print lines appear in my printout - i have ran the maintenance checks and nozzle check utility seems fine although the black looks a bit fuzzy - do you know how to resolve this problem please?...


If you haven't done so, run the alignment setup again. If that doesn't work, put in new cartridges and see if there are still lines in your printout. This will check if it's a printer issue or cartridge issue. Here's a PDF from epson on how to run the alignment setup. See page 11. http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/r300__/r300__pg.pdf

My Epson R320 prints blue lines across and over all my printing including DVD printing is the anyone out there that can help it loohs just like a writing pad that contains lines peter


Epson told me it needed to be serviced but I did not accept that. It was hardly used. But everything I tried failed at first. Cleaning the print head barely showed any inprovement. Finally I just removed all the ink cartridges, then just put them back in. Something reset is my guess. Cleaned again and now it is printing without any lines. As good as new so far...

Am getting black streaks on my printouts from my EPSON Stylus CX4800. They are darkest on the margins of the paper but the lines are visible across the entire page.


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

When i print i have blue lines running across the page spaced about 1 inch apart


My printout looked like it was printed on ruled paper that we had as kids. I tried everything like head cleaning etc.I was ready to start looking for a new printer since repair is not that economical. So as a goof..I tried taking each cartridge out and then put it back in..simple. So far I'm good believe it or not.

The printer is only printing in two colors and only in lines going across the page. not a full print


Make sure that the ink you have, is Epson Ink.

I bought a compatible, supposely ink, and when I put it in, Colors did not come out the same. Lines and words, did not print out properly.

So I threw the ink cartridges, and bought original, Epson Ink, and Ooh-LA-LA, Printed out just fine.

Go Figure.

Good Luck

No black when printing color


Dear Sir,

You are getting black lines in green color,and apperence of parallel light and dark lines because your colour catridge is almost empty.So solution is replace the catridge and take a printout. There is no proplem with a printer. i think it solves your problem.


good luck

Red and blue lines across printouts


open printing preferences and click on maintenance. Run the print head alignment utility. Sometimes this will remove the horizontal banding. I had this same problem and had to uninstall the printer and reinstall just like it was new, running the alignment feature before it was corrected. Worked ok for a few days then started again. I assumed that the printhead is bad. To costly to repair and bought a new printer.

Epson al cx11nf print problems: Lines on side of output


This could be caused by a dirty lens on the laser unit. Try cleaning the laser window. Open the front panel (where you change the toner) and the right you will see a blue lever/handle - pull it out towards you. Now on the right side panel of the printer you will notice a little plastic panel about 2"x0.75" - open that and you will see inside another handle. Pull this handle out and back in a few times. This draws a cleaner pad across the lens. If toner has fallen onto the lens it makes the are it has fallen onto create blank lines on the print. If this does not solve your issue then the next suspect would be the PCU. Just get another one (same as C1100 if you can borrow one) and try it.

Colour lines across the page


Hey Paul, Can you post a scan of the printed paper? It may help diagnose your problem. The most common cause of lines accross the page is either the PhotoConductor Unit or the 2ND BTR Assy.
