I had this trouble, went through cleaning & realignment, then various print options. What i found was that dark colours had faint dark horizontal lines 5mm apart when printing on Photo in the epson driver. Changing it to Best Photo solved it.

SOURCE: epson photo 995 - black ink not printing

This is a common problem I have found with Epson printers. If you don’t use the printer on a regular basis the printer heads can clog. I have found no way to clean the heads once this occurs. I will now only purchase HP printers because the printer heads are part of the ink cartridges. With every cartridge change you get new heads, end of that problem!

SOURCE: When I print photos, they have uniform vertical streaks.

Issue: Banded or streaked prints
Solution: Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows)

Change the Print Quality Settings (Windows) The Quality setting controls how finely ink droplets are placed on the printed page. Depending on the type of paper being used a higher Print Quality setting does not always insure a better print. Print speed will decrease as the Print Quality setting is increased. Follow the instructions below to change the print quality settings in the Canon printer driver for the Windows operating system through a printing application.

  1. Click 'Properties' in the Print dialog box.

    Note: Depending on the Application software, 'Properties' may be displayed as 'Preferences'.

  2. Set the desired print quality in the 'Print Quality' section.

  3. Select 'High', 'Standard', or 'Draft / Fast'.
To set more detailed print quality settings, follow this procedure:
  1. Select 'Custom' and click 'Set'.

  2. In the Set Print Quality dialog drag the slide bar from 'Fast' to 'Fine' to select the print quality.

    Note: There are five options in 'Quality'. However, selectable options are limited depending on the media type.

  3. Select 'Auto', 'Dither', or 'Diffusion' from the 'Halftoning' section.

Why are my prints only printing the reds and blues in photos?


Please next time put the question in the correct category. I still will try to help you.
If your printer does not tell you any cartridge is empty, and it still does not use that colour it could be the nozzles of one cartridge are blocked. Check this by printing a test page, as told in the user manual. Sometimes called an alignment print.
Then check if all colours appear correct. Looks like yellow is not working correct.

Printer will only print purple


on a colour printer, black is mixed with the other colours. Try printing a black and withe photo and you always get a colour cast. If your black cartridge is empty or the nozzles are blocked, you get bad colour and fussy prints.
test all nozzles, like is explained in the manual.
Check, if you know how to do, if nothing fell in the printer, that is now on the print head. Sometimes just dust or paper scraps are picked up by the printhead, making it difficult for the printer to print a normal page.

Hi My Epson Stylus R200 print is nearly unreadable. The status monitor says status is OK and the nozzle check is fine


Ensure the nozzle check has 6 colours if it doesn't you will need to try head cleaning. you may also need to align the print head. All this can be found in the same place as the option for nozzle check.

If that is ok try a different paper type, ensure you are using relativly fresh ink.

Wont print out accurate color when printing a Greyscale photo


Hi, I recommend doing a nozzle check first to ensure all the colours are printing fine.
Within the advanced option of the printer driver you have an option to select greyscale, it might be worth enabling this feature.
If you are using glossy media the problem might be down to the ink reaction with the glossy resin as this can cause casting or bronzing. To check this try printing on matt paper.
If you are printing from Photoshop check your colour matching settings, the easiest way to do this without messing to much is try printing from another application, I would recommend Epson's own, Easy Photo Print.

Wrong colour


Have you done the nozzle check print? It would show if any colors are missing. While ready with the green light on, press and hold the resume button until the green light flashes twice and release, it will print the nozzle check. You also can't use the photo magenta or photo cyan in this machine, you need the regular cartridges.

Lines in the print


Nozzle check perfect? No ink drop outside lines? Cyan lines is random position. Print blank pages. It is still appear cyan lines? If yes, it caused by waste ink at bottom plate. Print blank pages more, it will clean itself.

Color is way off from photo I've taken


What I have looked at online could be the idea of maybe your printer nozzle in cloggged for that colour and is over compensating with another colour. Do a colour test and see if this is true. Then try to adjust the other colours to match what you would like printed.

R300 - quality terrible and no status monitor


If you're getting gaps in the nozzle checks and cleaning isn't resolving it, it is possible a nozzle is blocked with dried ink. You can get cleaning cartridges which contain a solvent that disolves the clogged ink.
I'll not suggest any brands, but talk to your local friendly computer shop, or do a search. Something like epson r300 cleaning cartridge should work.
When you say the status monitor is greyed out, is this on the computer or the printer? And I'd hope you're not using HP inks... It's an Epson printer ;) But on a serious note, I've not yet had any problems using non-Epson inks.

HTH,
Neil

Blue lines all over the printing


Did u clean the print nozzle's as well? If that does not solve your problem, you should try and replace the cartridge. (Colour in case of blue lines and black in case of black lines)
