If after cleaning the print head and changing the cartridge yellow still doesn't print, it sounds like there may be a problem with the print head or the board that controls the print head. The print head may not be receiving the signal to turn on. Check the circuit boards on the machine for obvious damage or a burn smell. Depending on the model printer it may be cheaper to replace the printer than to have the board or print head replaced.
Your print head probably has crusted ink on it, as the heads are built into Epsons. If you have tried cleaning, deep cleaning, and then priming (the last 2 aren't available on all Epsons), and it is still banding, you have 2 options:
Disassemble the printer and soak the head in alcohol and hope it works
get a new printer.
Heads on an Epson are too expensive to bother swapping out.
I think it must be the ink blow-by, you must clear the ink path through the printer head. Try to activate the cleaning of the head pins. Just go to the printer icon then right click and click the printing preferences then look for the head cleaning menu. then try to print test by doing a cold reset.
try printing all 7 color individually as a 1st step in diagnostic so you'll know w/c color is actually giving you the problem, no need to do the software this is a hardware problem, it could be one of the ink cartridges,
Buy them at a official EPSON service center or throw away the printer and buy a HP. Actual EPSON printers uses 5 ml ink cartridges for each color and black. HP printers has the same volume cartridges but there are only 2, tricolor and black. If a HP printing head becomes clogged (don't worry, it almost never happens), just throw away the cartridge and install another (the print head comes with the ink cartridge). If a EPSON print head becomes clogged you have no other choice than buying another printer because EPSON's print heads are expensive and become discontinued 12 months after the printer model was launched to the market.
Also, HP Printers are cheaper than those from EPSON and offers excellent print quality on any paper. Compare a 10 years old HP printer with actual EPSON's and the HP has the sharpest black printing. The color is another story.
Did you try cleaning the decoder strip? It is located behind the print head, looks like the tape inside a cassette tape. If it has ink splatter or a smudge on it carefully wipe it down with a paper towel (damp). It may be easier to remove it, careful not to stretch the little spring on the left side.
actually all printer design by ink its automatic clean up... by head of ink wipe up. if u encounter in printing for you ink printer - make sure your cartridge has an ink black/colored - make sure you u use your printer every month so that it wont be frozen.. - just wipe the head with clean soft cotton with water.
