Check out this link for Stylus drivers for your printer. What I have found is that you can always go down with printer model for updating drivers but not up. Just copy and paste into your browser.

My epson printer is printing the black from all the other colors, and ignoring the black ink cartridge


If you are printing "graphic" images ie photos, pdf's, fancy type-faces, lines or grayscale - your print is defined as colour and will be printed using colour shaded with black.

Printer only prints top and bottom lines on page


All web based documents, especially bank statements, require a COLOUR cartridge, so if your cartridge is empty, it will print blank pages. Although the font may look black... it is normally NOT. Altentaively you may also need to instruct your printer to print "background images".

The blue colour has run out but the black is fresh and it won't let me print a black text document-is it possible with out having to go and get a blue cartridge?


The Epson DX4850 will print black only. You can find a check box in the settings to Print Black only in the advanced options.

This works fine for me when all my colours are empty.

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.

Blue lines all over the printing


Did u clean the print nozzle's as well? If that does not solve your problem, you should try and replace the cartridge. (Colour in case of blue lines and black in case of black lines)

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.
