Question about Epson Stylus CX4800 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I am getting black only smears of ink at the end of each printing line all down the page. I have replaced in the ink cartridges, cleaned the heads, and wasted a lot of ink to try and resolve.
Please load the printer with at least 10 sheets of plain paper then press the start button. This will dry or clean any ink found on the rollers.
Continue to run blank pages through the printer until no more ink is found on the paper, then attempt printing. If ink stains, streaks or smudges are still present, the printer may need service.

Finally fixed black smear problem!
My prints had the black marks mostly near the edges of the paper.
I found that the printer "head", had a wad of ink soaked (cat) hair stuck to it on the right hand bottom edge, being dragged back and forth over the paper.
I got the head to stay in place by turning off the power at my power strip
when the head was in a good spot. I used needle-nosed pliers to reach in to remove the hair. Hope this helps.

I had similar problem printing a 5.75 x 4.375" envelope on epson 1800. After a day of frustration, researched on similar problem on the internet, I finally RESOLVED the problem !!!!!
here is what you need to do:
1.make sure to do "custom" size on page setup > to make sure you have the right size you need.
2.(I am using in design), then on your printer menu, pick define by printer.
3. then go to printer > extension setting > CLICK on THICK
done ! I am overjoyed now.. i finally can print my own wedding envelope !!
