Epson 1900 inket print head clogged
Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead
1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning
And if that not work
Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.
There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.
Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Color mismatch and blurry/smudgy prints
Remove ink catridges and clean print head, shake inks and reinstall the inks, if problem persist, Uninstall the driver and reinstall. thats should help. Some time if the print head are dirty it prints multi color. You have to make sure the Head is Clean and install th inks properly.

Lines in photo
If you have white horizontal lines in your prints then most likely you have some blocked print head nozzles.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent blocked print head nozzles. You may have blocked print head nozzles.
Try the printer maintenance to clear the printer nozzles.
After several deep cleaning attempts and there is no improvements in the print then a new print head is required.
A new print head maybe expensive and it maybe more cost effective to purchase a new printer.

What is causing ink smudges?
inside the epson on the right side, there is a small windshield wiper for lack of a better word. This wipes the tip of the head. Things you can try but not factory recommended. When the ink containers are parked they are on the right, in order to see this black 1.5 inch strip you will need the ink to be on the left. generally turn it on and unplug it when it goes to the left. you can take a cotton swab now and gently dry off this wiper. after you have done both sides of the wiper, you can put some windex on a new cotton swab and go over the wiper one more time. wait 2-3 minutes for it to dry. then try to use it again.
If you have already tried the maintenance tab on the Ctrl-P, Properties, Maintenance for a windows vista OS, nosel check, head cleaning and printing adjustment....if your not broke yet on print cartridges, as these all take ink try printing only in black and white, or Grey scale. If you don't know most black comes from combining all your colors and some black. Yes I know we all thought that when we print black that it only used the black unit but no!
