CX6600 horizontally cuts text

Hi all, My CX6600 for some reason cuts text horizontally when printing. It doesnt seem to have an issue with images. Some lines are printed in full but others only half print (either the top or the bottom half). Any ideas? thanks hardeep

    Just another thing to add, i changed the colour of the text from black to yellow and the print out looks ok. I have just changed all 4 print cartridges so black ink is fine but yet this problem still exists.

    thanks all

    I am experiencing the same problem and have already tried the suggested solutions with no success. Oddly the cuts appear an inch apart down the length of the document and color printing is not effected.

The problem may be that you have a clogged nozzle in the print head. Run a nozzle check pattern and check the results. If the pattern printed is broken for any colour, run a head clean. You should also check the print head alignment, as it may have gone askew. I f you do not have the facility to run an alignment check, get hold of the Epson Adjustment software (try http://www.TheServiceManualShop.com) and that will do the job for you.

Why does every other line of print have the top half of the print cut off?


The print head prints two lines of text/image at one time. If there is a partial print of alternating lines, you probably have a partially clogged print head. Print a test page to see what you get, and perform head cleaning process if needed.

Printing black horizontal lines below text/on top of pictures


Check the waste recepticle under where the ink cartridges rest in the home position. Over time, ink sprayed into this cup during cleaning cycles builds up to form a small mountain of congealed ink. If this gets too high, it makes contact with the printhead and drags ink across all your prints. If there is a ***** of ink present, scoop it out with a spoon or a popsicle stick.

Horizontal lines and tones specks around text


Only known causes are a dirty corona wire or a dirty/bad drum. If you know the drum is good, a thorough cleaning of the drum and cleaning the corona wire should clear up your printing.
