Remove the printer cartridges. Clean the contacts on the print head and on the back of the cartridges.

<Cause>
On some types of paper (especially those with a high calcium carbonate content), toner offset to the fixing film can
start to cake, moving from the fixing film or the pressure roller to the face or back of paper.
<Field Remedy>
Use the following service mode item to change the timing at which the fixing pressure roller is cleaned:

1: execute cleaning during last rotation every 500 printouts
2: execute cleaning during last rotation every 200 printouts

I've been having problems with my Epson 7600 large format printer, I recently took it all apart to unblock the light black tube. I reassembled the printer and everything is back to normal apart from I now...


The most common cause of horizontal banding is generally missing, deflected or clogged nozzles. To see if this is the cause you should first print a nozzle check and examine the printout with a 10x or better eye loupe for any missing or deflected nozzles. If nozzles are missing or deflected you will need to perform cleaning cycles to recover these nozzles. Once all missing nozzles are recovered try printing your document again.
If no nozzles are missing or deflected, check that you are using the correct driver settings for the type of media you're printing on. Also try printing at a higher resolution and turning high-speed (bi-directional) printing off.

The most common cause of vertical banding is over-saturation of the media, usually created by paper "rippling". To correct this effect, decrease the saturation and lower the paper suction. If vertical banding is still apparent print the image with high speed off (uni-directional). If this corrects the issue, align the print head, as described on page 5-6 of the Users Guide.

Big black vertical line on back of the paper.PIXMA CanoniP4200


Your black ink seems to have spilled a bit at the nozzle. The fact is even if you do nothing it should seize staining the back of the paper after a while, so long as the spill is only temporal. But if you want it over with quickly, you may try printing quite good number of pages till you see that the stops. With every print you will most certainly observe that the stain will reduce. Otherwise if you can reach into the printer with a stick or something, you may try to clean it.

There is something on your scanner glass. Clean the glass with glass cleaner. If this happens when using the automatic document feeder, open the top side cover where the paper feeds into. There is a narrow glass strip there. Clean that as well.

If this fails, the scanner head has a bad sector on the CCD and will need to be replaced. You will probably find that it will be cheaper to replace the printer entirely if that is the case.

No setting for black and white printing only


The setting isn't on your printer, its in windows.

The next time you print, instead of just clicking "Ok" to send the document to the printer, click "properties." this will look different depending on your OS and whether or not you have printer software installed so I can't give you step by steps but there should be an option here to either set the printing defaults to greyscale or just a straight up black/white dropdown/checkbox. save that as default and you are done.
