Epson 9800 Prints black dotted vertical line

Our epson 9800 has been printing a black single dotted line on the left hand side of any image we print. It is always 1/2 inch from the image in the border regardless of the sheet size. We have cleaned the cap assembly, flushed the sponges and removed all lint. Still the single dotted line. Is this maybe a head issue? please help

This is a workaround - I too need a definitive answer. Symptom: black dotted vertical line 1/2 to 3/4" from leftmost image edge. I have begun adding single vertical line to my prints .25" from the left edge of the paper to force the "dots" off my print - this seems to have the desired affect, but it does not answer the cause or provide a true remedy (it will save many of your prints while we wait for complete solution). dkh

    Did anyone ever work this out? I have the same problem. I will take a tip from who10 above as thats a great idea, but what is this issue? I have had it from when the printer was relatively new, and it only does it when printing on paper, not canvas.

Epson artisan 810 prints vertical black lines on all documents


this problem is usually fixed easily. this commonly occurs when print head is clogged. I use a facial tissue and alcohol to clean the head with the ink cartridge in an upside down position (if possible) then i print one or two test prints to get it back to normal.

Printer only prints top and bottom lines on page


All web based documents, especially bank statements, require a COLOUR cartridge, so if your cartridge is empty, it will print blank pages. Although the font may look black... it is normally NOT. Altentaively you may also need to instruct your printer to print "background images".

My MP600 printer prints horizontal stripes on glossy photo paper. Also, a single line of black dots prints vertically. I have deep cleaned the nozzle and realigned the printing. The wide black cartridge...


First your white horizontal lines are due to you not printing in the best quality. Go into the printing preferences and change the quality to best/quality.

The dots printed vertically are possibly due to ink getting onto the star wheels on the doc exit rollers. Also its possible that the printing media is a bit on the thin side and may need to be supported when exiting the machine.

Those should solve your problem. A new printhead wont make any difference.

Good luck

I'm printing out of photoshop to our epson 9800, and every print comes out with a line of tiny black dots on one side. how can i fix this?


Is it on left side? if yes. Please follow these:
1. Look at your printers left side. There is a sponge/fome on the left, that is put on a rectangle hole.
2. Pick up it.
3. Wash it with fresh water.
4. Set it again sothat it can't contain a single drop of water.
Then print with your printer.
I think you will get rid from your printer problem.
Thank you

Epson 9800 wont print large images


Hi,

make sure that the printer is not managing color by selecting "off (no color adjustment)" in the Printer Color Management option of the printer settings.

Could be a head clog, could be ink starvation, could be head overheating...

How old is it ... ?

Vertical print residue left about half inch past the longest line printed


inside the front cover, under where the head parks, you will find a vertical wiper. Clean it.

Power off. open front door. push down cutter (blue) and slide head to the left. To the right of the cleaning pad is the wiper. clean with rubbing alcohol on both sides.

Run a normal cleaning.

All set
NOTE: you do not need to put the head back in place. when you power on it will automaticly park itself

Printing Borderless at 42" width?


Set the roll size to 44 inch, set your left margin to 0 (in your preprint software), experiment. With margins set at 0, using Onyx Productionhouse 7.3, the 9800 will print approx 41.8 inch image on 42 inch roll 43.8 on 44, etc. This is considered borderless printing. No matter what size roll you tell the printer it has in it, it will print to about an eighth to a sixteenth of an inch short of the paper's actual edge (that's the left side of the roll paper coming out of the printer - the right side of the print). If you load, for example, a 36 inch roll, tell the printer its a 44 inch roll, and send a 40 inch wide print, with a left margin of 0 it will print around 35.8 inches, cutting off the image just before it would overprint and get ink on the machine (1/8 - 1/16inch before the edge of your 36 inch stock). It is possible that these tollerances will be different depending on what software you send your images with... hope this helps!
