Question about Epson Stylus R265 InkJet Photo Printer
All my prints are coming out with horizontal lines across them every 2.5 cm. The lines aren't the white ones that would indicae the need for head cleaning. Nevertheless I have cleaned the heads and performed print head alignment but the problem persists. Any advice?
Check status monitor see if cartridges are low or nearly empty , if new or full take out all cartridges and soak nozzles upright in cleaning solution overnight , or untill ink starts to bleed out:
Dab dry and re - fit , make up a A4 paper page with 6 colour bands about 1" high x 8" wide and print about 4 to 6 pages ,
check which colours are poor , if improvement is observed run
again a few times:

clogged nozzle, run the clean head then test page in this order at least 5 times in a row, you should see an improvement on each test page, sometimes you need to keep doing this clean/print until the nozzle becomes unclogged, if you don't see a difference in the 5-10 clean/test page then you need a new head
hope this helps
Thanks for your rating
