You don't say exactly, but I'm guessing that scanning when laying the document flat on the glass (ie, not using the document feeder) you get a printout that is fine. It's only when you use the document feeder that you get the vertical lines on the printout?
Epson repair tech in my area says this is a common problem. It is due to the aging of the calibration strip (the white strip at the underside of the flat bed glass near the "home" position). It shrinks after years and can't provide correct calibration.
This is a problem only with the pages fed through the document scanner. It sounded weird to me, but the tech said he stocks lots of replacement glass and does lots of these repairs to Epson scanners.
It might be cheaper to buy a new scanner rather than get yours fixed. He said it's pretty inexpensive to do this repair, but scanners are also pretty cheap.
Good luck.

My Epson Artisan 800 prints only 1 inch of anything and then spits the paper out


Try the following to resolve this issue.

1. Check if same issue appears when using your Artisan 800 as a standalone copy machine.

2. Try printing from a different application to isolate the issue further. You can also print a windows test page to check if this issue is caused by the application that you are printing from or by the printer driver.

3. Reinstall Printer Driver.

Did yo clean the thin glass on the extreme left side. If you lift the document feeder cover, you'll see the thin glass strip. Make sure it's clean.

I have a epson artisan 800 I'm tring to fax from the automatic feeder but it keeps making a grinding sound and then it says paper jam but paper never even went through


I took apart my artison 800 with 'paper jam' error and grinding noise. Sadly enough, it is the plastic gear attached to the stepper motor which is slipping and making the grinding noise. I tried to glue it and it worked once or twice and failed again. It is a design flaw and Epson should repair this for free if they are honest about this problem. Ir is not a user-caused problem.
