Question about Epson Stylus Pro 4800 InkJet Printer

Color test strip is printing each time before a legitimate print is printed

My Epson Stylus Pro 4800 prints out a color test strip ( half of a 8x10 sheet of paper) before each and every print. This is using up a lot of extra ink. This problem started when I upgraded to OSX10.5.2 Macintosh operating system. New drivers are still not available!!! This is so frustrating. Is it a driver problem having to do with upgrade to OSX 10.5.2 or another issue?

Does not print


Hi,
First of all please check the ink level. If it is not finished try followings:

First try to run a cleaning cycle. To do that:
- Load paper in the paper tray. - Access printer utilities. (Right click your printer icon, select printing preferences and click the utility tab to access printer utilities) - Click the nozzle check icon. - Print to check it.
Then click the clean button to clean the print head. - Try it a few times.
İf it doesn't help you can try to run power cleaning cycle. But it uses much ink. There must be enough ink in the cartridge.
Hope this helps.

Sometimes, if you have a long USB cable, the information becomes corrupted. Try using a USB booster or a shorter cable.

Epson Stylus Pro 4800 InkJet (Color printing problems)


If you do a nozzle check...do a cleaning...then do another nozzle check, you can "read" the patterns to see exactly what the problem may be. If the first nozzle check is missing half, then you do the cleaning, and the second is missing half also, check the pattern of the box to see if the missing nozzles are jumping around. If the pattern is exactly the same, you have clogs. If the pattern jumps around, you are having ink starvation issues, and may need dampers.
