Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer
If head cleaning and alignment have not worked try changing the cartridges to ensure that the printer minus the cartridges is alright. If there is any fault with the cartridges, as you say black and cyan are the cause of worry, try changing them with new ones. Yes I agree it is an added expenditure but better than changing the printer and then finding out that the cartridges were faulty. Best of luck.

Thanks for using FixYa. The horizontal lines appear while printing if the ink dries up and while printing these spots are missed and it appears as dark horizontal lines. If the printer is not used for a long time, the inks in the cartridges dry up and these lines appear. Remove the cartridges, clean the cartridge slots with a soft cloth and reseat them after a minute. Please do this while printer is turned off.
You'll also need to perform printhead cleaning. To check these out in Windows XP, click Start and then Printers and Faxes. Right-click on the printer and click on printing preferences. This displays the Printing Preferences dialog box, which houses various layout and print-quality preferences, as well as the printer’s maintenance options.
Click the Maintenance tab to view what your printer can do from a software perspective. There will be 2 cleaning modes—cleaning and Deep Cleaning. Cleaning isn’t quite as time-consuming as the Deep Cleaning mode, but Deep Cleaning mode does a more thorough job and can resolve some issues that the normal Cleaning mode can’t. Just click the proper cleaning mode to start it and let the cleaning process run its course. You may have to do this a number of times to get the print head clean.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
