    I have the same problem but with black lines. The lines strart 1 cm of the left of the print and stop 1 cm before the right margin. it only happens with full colour photos so I presume the settings are wrong on my computer but don't know how to fix them.

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)

Black marks on the printing


You could have a build up of ink on your rollers, and as the paper is pushed through it is leaving marks. It could also be causing your ghosting effect or double lines. By having your printer cleaned by a certified technician it should reslove your issue.

My Epson is printing fine lines of different colours across and over the images that I am printing, if i am printing black the lines are blue, if in colour the lines are magenta or blue in different parts...


Check out this link for Stylus drivers for your printer. What I have found is that you can always go down with printer model for updating drivers but not up. Just copy and paste into your browser.

What do I have to do if I want to use sublimation ink on Epson stylus photo 1290?Thanks


what you want is not possible. the Epson Stylus Photo 1290 does not use sublimation ink. it is strongly advised to only use genuine Epson ink to keep the print quality of your print head as high as possible.

Epson stylus photo 1290 printing black splodges


Joy:
Once more have the printer to perform the ink nozzles cleaning.
If you are using a ontinuos ink system, place it at the same level than that of the printer.
With the printer in the "replace carrtidge position", put it OFF and by hand, clean the place at which the cartridge rest.
Good luck and merry christmas

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
