Question about Epson Stylus Photo 1280 InkJet Printer
My E1280 puts red lines all over my great photos. Any ideas? I have horizontal red parallel lines spaced about 1/8" apart and have tried everything! I called Epson about service in my area and they were of no real help. I only use Epson printer inks and would like to repair or replace this 1280 as it has been good over the years. Or find a similar Epson product. I would rather not go for the multiple in cartridges. Any suggestions?
I tried FixitDan's solution prior to reading his post and it seemed to minimize the problem, in that it does not happen as often, but still happens. Looks like there is something "dragging" on the printhead itself, or perhaps the firmware is firing the nozzle at the wrong time. In any event, can the print head be replaced easily on the 1280? As others have mentioned, this has been a really great printer for the past seven years.

Suggestion: Open up the "hood". All the way on the right side of the top of the plastic case, you'll see a large switch. Switch it up from "0" to "1". This will give the paper a little more room and might help.
