Epson Stylus Photo R320

I have a white thin line down the middle of my printouts. It actually has some chalkiness to it. I have cleaned the nozzles and realigned everything, but the line remains. What do you suggest?
Thank you,

Lauren

I had a printer come in for repair for pretty much the same problem, a bit of chalk had fallen in were the paper goes and got fed through under the exit rollers

Not too sure on the R 320 but on a lot of the Epson printers the exit rollers are spring loaded - the are the little rollers just before the head - Have a look and see if you can spot anything, esp in the area were your mark is, if you cannot see anything, does the area look a bit raised?

If there is something there, what you can try is tilt the printer back so to paper in part is near the floor, then try and lift the exit rollers up a bit and hope that the object will drop out the back - be very careful lifting the rollers

You don't need to do head alignment, because it is for vertical banding in printout. Vertical banding can be minimized by disabling high speed option without doing head alignment. If your printout have horizontal white lines, do check nozzle and head cleaning, or you can minimize white lines by printing in best quality (photo).

Epson Stylus Photo R800 Print Head Nozzles ??


Don't use nozzles clean function, besides ink consuming it can cause damages that cannot be fixed: black lines on the back side of the page that will be permanent. Instead put two photo paper together (2x260 gr) and push the two papers together into the printer while printing a motive including many colors. Do so a couple of times and the clogg usually disappears. Good luck! jonk

EPSON Stylus CX3810 thin white line in every printed line


Hi there the likely thing is that there is a small blockage in the print heads not allowing the jet to fire and causing a blank line. You could remove the print head turn it upside down using a soft cloth clean the print head also use a alcohol based fluid to aid you.

Try this if it's doesn't work then the print head will need replacing you will be able to buy online.

Thanks J
