Hello

Perform a head cleaning by opening up your printer in "Devices and Printers." Click on the start menu, and then click on the "Devices and Printers" option located in the bottom right corner of the start menu panel. Right-click on the printer that is giving you trouble to bring up the printer properties.

Click "Troubleshoot" on the pop-up menu to start up Windows automatic troubleshooting. The troubleshooting program wizard will run and ask you a couple of questions about your problem. Complete the troubleshooter, and then print another page and check it to see if any lines appear.

Check your task bar for any printing software that will show you the ink levels. Check the indicators on the printer as well to make sure the ink isn't running low. If the ink is running low, replace the ink cartridges based on the user manual provided with the printer.

Clean the print head of the cartridge by removing the ink cartridge and taking a corner of the cloth and dabbing it in alcohol. Run the cloth over the ink deposit point found in the lower bottom region of the print cartridge. Allow the cartridge to air dry before reinserting it into the printer.

Check the printer for any paper jams, and run a nozzle check and cleaning from the printer. The printer has menu buttons and features with which you can manually perform much of the maintenance that is required to keep it running at top-notch levels.

GOODLUCK

When I print an excel page showing gridlines the lines are not straight but wavy and some of the numbers on the sheet are not visible


Cartridges are not alighned.
Remove one of the cartridges and insert it back.
The printer will print an alighment page. There are instructions on the page to place it on the scanner and to press the Scan button.
For alighment to be successful the printer has not to missing any ink.
Instead of removing and inserting a cartridge, you can use Maintenance tab in Printer preferencies to strat printhead alighment.

Epson Stylus r220 prints with white lines... i installed a CIS and it worked fine for about 6 months, now i'm getting prints with white lines (or fine spots) i tried nozzle check, which comes out good......


Nozzle check must perfect for perfect output. There are tranversal lines at vertical straight lines that represent same point of head micro piezo. If tranversal lines no clog at all, but vertical straight lines not perfectly straight, the result not good (like horizontal white banding). Check it? Head aligment is for vertical banding. If your result is horizontal banding, you don't need to realign head. It's caused by some residual at the output of head sprayer. So, the spray of ink not straight to paper. Try to print with photo/best photo.

New cartridges - printer not printing


Align your cartridges to solve print quality problems such as: • Characters are not properly formed or are not aligned at the left margin. • Vertical, straight lines are wavy. 1 Load paper in the paper support. 2 On the control panel, press Copy. 3 Press Options until Maintenance appears. 4 Press the right arrow until Align Cartridges appears, and then press Select. An alignment page prints. Once this page prints, your automatic alignment is complete.
Please rate this solution.thanks and good luck.
