Hi Kory
Inkjet printers are very fussy about the type of paper they use. The safest bet is to stick with paper made by the same company as the printer. Photo paper contains a texture that absorbs the ink and if the ink isn't soluble to that texture it won't dry right.

Another possibility is are you using re-manufactured or refilled ink cartridges? Although cheaper, this solution for expensive ink cartridges is not always good for the printer. You could have a bad cartridge in there.

Let me know about these things and we will go from there. Thanks!

My RX580 leaves horizontal stripes on my prints. Any suggestions?

Your print heads inside the printer are clogged. You may have to run a LOT of cleaning cycles to get it to clear. Even then, if it's been clooged too long that may not remedy the problem. Once the leftover in drops dry in the heads (from being empty and/or sitting idle too long) it's difficult to remedy. First, If you are using compatible ink carts, try changing to Epson carts.

I have Windows XP with Rx580 Epson Printer and need black print

Get one of the resetters for the ink cartridges (might not be easily available in the US - I know they are available in Thailand. Reset (electronic resetting of the internal chip) the color cartridges to "full" and then set the printer to "BLACK ONLY". Don't print in color and you can print black. Alternately get a set of refillable cartridges (I got a set again in Thailand for about $20 for the set of 6) fill the black and ignore the others. it will ONLY print BLACK
