You should try alcohol (from the drugstore) to dissolve the ink on the rollers.

How can I cure streaking on the reverse of the paper? Epson S20.

streaking on the reverse side suggest dirty rollers.

1. remove cartridges form the printer
2. disconnect all cables
3. check full paper path for presence of debris, lint, bits of paper, remove if necessary (you can put printer on it's back or sides for esy removal)
4. mount on long skewers lint free clothing or tissue
5. wet tissue/cloth in isopropyl alcohol and whipe all rubber rollers on paper path till no discoloration to the tissue
6. connect all cables
7. insert inks and print test page

if necessary, you need to clean rollers again, but once is usually sufficient. to keep printer in good condition, you need to print at least one page per week and periodicaly clean the rollers, that depend on amount of printing done.

Why does my epson stylus 1400 leave streaks in the print?

The tracking wheels (spiked wheels) can pick up ink and lay it back down. They can also accumulate debris that collect ink and put it down in the form of streaks. This is especially true if you use dusty or moist papers (or frosting sheets).

Black Ink Smears on Photo Prints

I wouldn't give up on the clean cycles unless you have run 20-30 of the annoying things. If there is ink on the roller (probably on the bottom of the ink head)
you can clean this fairly easily using some household white vinegar and lint free paper towel. Just wet the towel and very gently wipe. The vinegar dissolves the inks. This will usually clean things far better than anything else and can restore an old dead printer to the point it can print like new.

I have a epson stylus 660 i am trying to print

A full cleaning of the head requires removal from the printer. The "cleaning funtion" will still leave dribbles on the bottom of the head which cause streaks. SOMETIMES you can wet a couple thicknesses of paper and drag under the heads to clean the area. Use 91% isoprophyl alcohol.

If the ink has bled out of the heads it takes a lot of patience to get the ink cleaned out. Also the paper rollers often need cleaning.

The rollers jst need a good cleaning. If you don't know how to service the printer, take it to your local service agent for cleaning.

Hi, I have an Epson NX 400 (quite new) and it has been feeding the paper at an angle so it jams. We are also out of ink so nothing happens when I try to feed paper thru. Dont want to spend money on...

To correct the paper issue, dampen a cloth and dab it with dish detergent. Then clean all the rubber rollers you see. Also, check and make sure there is no paper residue stuck in the rollers.
When you finish this, try to form feed a piece of paper.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
