Question about Epson Stylus R265 InkJet Photo Printer
All my prints are coming out with horizontal lines across them every 2.5 cm. The lines aren't the white ones that would indicae the need for head cleaning. Nevertheless I have cleaned the heads and performed print head alignment but the problem persists. Any advice?
same problem epson stylus photo R 340
I have exactly the same problem with my epson R265. Every 2.5cm a horizontal band appears on the page. This happends regardless of colur being printed. I printed a test page containing vertical columns of each colur and the band is present across all colours.
I would describe it as being 0.5mm strips of a darker shade of the intended colour.
I've run numerous head cleaning, and nozzle checks etc and still no joy.
Your laser scanner or your paper path might be defective. Try replacing the laser scanner or the engine controller board. For the paper path, you might also need to change your fuser.

I have an Epson SX215, worked perfectly until today, any image with black on it is only printing in black bands. Have done numerous head cleans and changed the ink but still not working.

I hope my english is good enough to help you.
i have observed the same problem on my printer R 265 and also stylus 1400.
It could be also a very simple problem... After inserting the cartrige several times even if it is a cartrige from a CISS...makes no difference, the cartrige places get used...how ever..so the cartrige does not keep tight enough to printer head, or the seal-rubber on the cartrige is used to much
and sometimes the printer head sucks air, or the color-ink from the ink on the left or right side of other cartriges.You must first find out wich cartrige is not tight, not sealing enough to the printer head ; After that you can make a sealing ring out of rubber-from a rubber glove as example(very thin)in diameter of about 10mm with a hole
in the midle(fitting good to the pipe...), putting it over the little pipe where the cartrige is conected to the printer head.So the conection will be sealed and the printer head will **** only his own color-ink. If this solution is not helpful than you have got a real problem with the hardware
hope i could help

If its doing it on all types of paper despite of any setting on printer driver, chances are you are having a hardware issue with the product.

Change your print quality to photo, that should do it

clogged nozzle, run the clean head then test page in this order at least 5 times in a row, you should see an improvement on each test page, sometimes you need to keep doing this clean/print until the nozzle becomes unclogged, if you don't see a difference in the 5-10 clean/test page then you need a new head
hope this helps
Thanks for your rating
