Hi, I'm having the same issue. I have managed to clean part of it by opening the printer and clearing some of the build-up paint (and hair) around the print head. It prints better, but not perfect. I am going to have another go. Have you opened your printer?

Prints in stripes


Hello ron.. Epson printers are engineered to print stripes when you use generic printer cartridges. That sounds like your problem. These printers have a chip that will detect if it is generic. When using generic cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. Joe

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Head problem


Sir,
Try to cleaning the print head. We even turned it off between uses to ensure the print head correctly parked on the rubber boot in the ink-purge area.
