Streaking on the reverse side suggest dirty rollers.

1. remove cartridges form the printer
2. disconnect all cables
3. check full paper path for presence of debris, lint, bits of paper, remove if necessary (you can put printer on it's back or sides for esy removal)
4. mount on long skewers lint free clothing or tissue
5. wet tissue/cloth in isopropyl alcohol and whipe all rubber rollers on paper path till no discoloration to the tissue
6. connect all cables
7. insert inks and print test page

if necessary, you need to clean rollers again, but once is usually sufficient. to keep printer in good condition, you need to print at least one page per week and periodicaly clean the rollers, that depend on amount of printing done.

The S20 has the orange light on and I cant turn it off.


Unfortunately with Epson printers it is all or nothing with them. The same thing happened to me with my stylus - I needed to replace all the cartridges, as they have a timer on them and won't let you print even if one is low or empty - there also isn't just a print in black options. These reasons are why I stopped buying Epson printers.

Make sure that there isn't any debris covering a sensor or any little bits of paper left over from a former paper jam in the printer.

Epson stylus s20 problem. Printer will not print if just one of the four colour cartridge is empty. Can the printer be programed to print with what cartridges are avalible? The printer message does not say...


Unfortunately, all cartridges must be used in unison. In order to print one color you can usually go into your settings and set it to black and white only, but some models will not even do this. To be frank, these Epson models have a horrific reputation on the Internet for not recognizing cartridges, only printing 10's of pages before the ink runs out, and just general overall problems. I am sorry, but I would professionally suggest buying the cheapest Kodak/HP/Brother at Wal-Mart over even trying to troubleshoot this model at all.

Why does my epson stylus 1400 leave streaks in the print?


The tracking wheels (spiked wheels) can pick up ink and lay it back down. They can also accumulate debris that collect ink and put it down in the form of streaks. This is especially true if you use dusty or moist papers (or frosting sheets).

Epson S20 does not recognise cartridges


It should be returned to the seller for exchange under warranty.

I presume you have removed the tags on the cartridge and ensured they have chips on the cartridge case? If all that has been done then i would be making a warranty claim

Epson scanner V100


Check the calibration strip to make sure it isn't soiled. This can cause streaking in your scans. Also check the glass where the paper is. Make sure it is clean as well.
