This sounds like your pinter is printing a self-test page every so often. Could be a lil' glitch in the printer. Try resetting your printer: 1. disconnect all the cables from it. 2. hold down the large GO button and plug in only the power cord. 3. Keep holding it until the lights start cycling or for 25 seconds, whichever comes first, then let go. The printer should go back into the ready state. 4. Reconnect the printer cable and restart the pc the re-establish communication. If that didn't help, it might have some malfunctioning component and requires a technician to troubleshoot!

My canon MX882 printer has become VERY slow at printing pictures. Almost undo able

This all comes down to file size of the picture and the quality you are printing in. Check your printer settings and see if you are printing in least, normal or best quality. Also look at the actual size in pixels of the picture you are printing.

Xerox Phaser 8560DP shows annoying 'print completion' message

Someone installed the "Printing Scout" on this computer. You may need to uninstall or check all the settings in the printer driver. I'm not really familiar with Macs but I know the 8560 inside out, upside down, and backwards.

My printer model 5700 desk jet is squeaking

Often times dust or paper debris becomes lodged around the printer feed wheels. Use a can of compressed air to throughly blow out all areas accessable. If the printer is older it is usually cheaper to replace it than trying to repair.

Epson Stylus c42 - how to take the printer apart ?

Do you mean that the print head has come off the guide rails at the back? The following pictures show the upper and lower guides from each side of the print head, which keep the print head on its track. The upper guides are connected to the actual print head assembly; the lower guides are connected to the cartridge carrier assembly. The print head assembly and the cartridge carrier assembly simply clip together.

Now, if you are lucky, all that has happened is that the two assemblies have become unclipped. If so, position the upper guides on the track and then squeeze the two assemblies together so that the lower guides go under the track - you should hear the assemblies click together.

If you are unlucky, it means you have managed to break one or more of the guides. If so, the print head or cartridge carrier, or both is probably scrap, I'm afraid.

I recommend you purchase a copy of the service manual before you attempt this task - they are not expensive. If you require any more assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.

Cleaning or replacing printhead / hose

Buy them at a official EPSON service center or throw away the printer and buy a HP.
Actual EPSON printers uses 5 ml ink cartridges for each color and black. HP printers has the same volume cartridges but there are only 2, tricolor and black.
If a HP printing head becomes clogged (don't worry, it almost never happens), just throw away the cartridge and install another (the print head comes with the ink cartridge). If a EPSON print head becomes clogged you have no other choice than buying another printer because EPSON's print heads are expensive and become discontinued 12 months after the printer model was launched to the market.

Also, HP Printers are cheaper than those from EPSON and offers excellent print quality on any paper. Compare a 10 years old HP printer with actual EPSON's and the HP has the sharpest black printing. The color is another story.
