Hey, sounds like the print heads, but replacing all the cartridges is best option first sometimes fixes the problem, if it dont you should look for epson 1290 cleaning cartridges on the internet they aint expensive, as head cleaning doesnt always unblock the print heads...

All the best

Red and blue lines across printouts


open printing preferences and click on maintenance. Run the print head alignment utility. Sometimes this will remove the horizontal banding. I had this same problem and had to uninstall the printer and reinstall just like it was new, running the alignment feature before it was corrected. Worked ok for a few days then started again. I assumed that the printhead is bad. To costly to repair and bought a new printer.

Unable to clean Epson C88 Nozzle


In view of leke0513's lack of interest in this problem, I think we may say it has been "solved by poster".

Lines on prints


Hi kids! I decided to have another go at sorting out my 'lines' problem and have sorted it. See if this might work for you: I had previously done the head cleaning via the printer itself - holding the central ink/paper black button for 3 secs. This time I went to the Epson 1290 window on my Mac and clicked on the utility box. Though the Nozzle check print came out fine I went ahead and did the head cleaning in this box. The next print came out almost perfect so I ran the Head cleaning again and it printed a perfect print. Hope this might work for you. Keep on trying! All the best. Trant

All pictures printed are blue


Do head cleaning. If your using Windows XP: click on start;control panel;printers and faxes; right click on the stylus photo 1290 icon and then left click on printing preferences.
Go to maintenance tab.Try to do 3 head cleanings. After head cleaning, try to print.If the picture is still bluish; go to printers and faxes; go to printing preferences; click on advanced button.
On the upper right part of the window you should see there color management, click on ICM and turn off, click on apply and ok.
try to print, if it is still the same, try to use another program to print your pictures.

Hi,

Hope this will give you hints. To pin point directly you need to replace printer head. But before replacing please consider suction cartridge caps or nozzle by cleaning and freeing clogged airways by dettaching manually. I understand that the long time being not used has caused the problem. However if you can still use black and other colors then used it than complicating downtime in repairing procedures. Yes, you are right no need to clean deeper more than three times it will consume inks half empty. Have a nice day.

Besr regards,

Printing problems


It could be that the underside of your head has a clump of ink on it and this is dragging across the paper. Contact http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com for there document about head cleaning - the document is not listed on the site but they can email it you. If this is not the issue then it could be that a cart has leaked into the cart carriage and is colouring one of the other inks. This is not that likely however as blue is a primary colour and can't be made by mixing inks. If it was for instance green bands that it would be plausible that blue ink was leaking into the yellow or vice versa. Another option is that the piezo thing that actuates the ink being fired is capput and allowing blue to leak through to the nozzles all the time. Or that the print head or main board is faulty. I'd try the cleaning first - it's the easiest option.

Blue lines all over the printing


Did u clean the print nozzle's as well? If that does not solve your problem, you should try and replace the cartridge. (Colour in case of blue lines and black in case of black lines)
