Double striking letters in middle of sentence

I have had my 2210 for about 5 years, works without issues, until now, recently started printing either the same letter more than once or strikes over top of another letter, if there is a graphic involved, it is also double struck . Have tried all the usual solutions without luck.

This was one of the BEST All-In-One printer HP had ever made
Its a real fortune to still have it.

Verification of color out – happens only after keeping the unit idle for quite some time.
1. Are the cartridges out of ink – check ink levels
2. check self-test report patterns (missing lines or streaked bars)
3. Look for missing colors or ink smears.
4. Was this issue showing up because of any one single color?
5. Was it stored in a warm environment (Stored under direct sunlight?)
6. Manual Cleaning & Cleaning from Driver

There is very likely a few plugged print head on your black cartridge. The printer or its software should have some maintenance options to do a cleaning.

Otherwise, you would need to try a new cartridge to see if the problem reproduces itself or take a look inside. There are a few possibilities.

#1: Some dirt/dust/hair/etc... has gotten stuck under the print carriage and is blocking certain print heads, unlikely as you would get some spotching and messy prints.

#2: The contacts behind the cartridge either on the cartridge or in the carriage are dirty and blocked so the signal is not getting to some of the print heads.

#3: The trailing cable going from the engine board to the carriage is damaged and is causing some printheads not to fire.

#4: The engine board is faulty, unlikely since the printer still seems to print well.

The short answer is that it's not economical to repair the printer further than replacing the cartridge. If you're fairly certain the cartridge is clean or that a new cartridge won't or hasn't fixed the problem then it's time to replace your printer.

Have fun!

Printer prints just part of sentences


Heeheehee do I feel stupid I just checked the printer for the upteenth time and finally found the problem.
I had a piece of paper (sticky price tag paper ) on the ink track so that was what was causing my problem. It was covered in ink LOL.

Lost reverse side printing option


Yepperz

The double sided printing option relies on Status monitor working correctly. If information cannot travel from the printer to the computer, the option will be greyed out.

Make sure you have a direct connection to the computer without any hubs. If that doesn't work, try the following.

1. Open START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, PRINTERS
2. Right click on your Epson printer name, and click CANCEL ALL DOCUMENTS.
3. Confirm cancelling all documents.
4. Right click on the Printer again, and select DELETE.

1) Click on START, SETTINGS and CONTROL PANEL.
2) Double click on the SYSTEM folder and select the Device Manager tab.
3) Click on the "+" for "Universal Serial Bus Controller"
4) Right click on "USB Printing Support" and select "Uninstall" and confirm it
5) Disconnect the USB cable and reconnect it.
