Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer

Vertical bars through printout

Please Help. I have an Epson 2200 which has been working fine till now. I am printing a series of photos on 6"x4" Epson Durabrite Photo paper. The first three printed fine and then I started getting vertical bars through the rest of them. I ran all the utilities - nozzle check, print head alignment, and head cleaning. All the test pages generated also have the vertical bars running through them, but all three things check out ok. Thank you so much.

Look closely at the marks on the print, and in particular the distance between the lines. Now look into the printer through the paper exit path. Take note of the metal star wheels. Does the distance between the lines match that of the distance between the star wheels? If so then the plate that the start wheels are mounted into may have dropped. You can remedy this by gently lifting the plate back up by hand. Set the machine as if you where going to print a CD and simply lift the start wheel plate at each end. Do not force it or apply too much pressure. Ease it up and then try it again. If it needs more adjustment repeat and check again. If the marks appear to be caused bu ink on one set of rollers or another, pass a really thick piece of card (like off the back of an A4 refill pad) through the paper path. Spray the rollers with a cleaning solution or windowlene (windex) and then pass the card through. This will help to clean off any ink. Again you can repeat this process as neccessary. Let us know if this helps before rating - if it does not I may have more info

Black ink marks on prints from Epson R380!


Hello:

I have been having this problem all day today and believe I resolved it. The photo paper is thicker (I'm using the Ultra Premium Photo Paper by Epson). I have an Epson 1280 photo printer. I opened the lid and moved the lever to adjust for paper thickness, and voila––no more black ink tracks down the one side. Since photo paper is thicker, this may be your problem as well. Check your manual and see if there's an adjustment for things such as printing envelopes and change the setting. Hope this works for you! I wasted about 6 sheets of paper until I thought to adjust for paper thickness. Please let me know!

Printing paper choices


The paper types available in the driver are dependent on which type of black ink cartridge is loaded in the printer. If the Photo Black ink is loaded, you should have various glossy paper choices. If the Matte Black ink is loaded, you will have a choice of plain or Matte paper types. Once the cartridge is switched, you will get the corresponding paper choices.

Epson stylus pohoto 830u paper feed


I'm afraid this series of printer (810 -830) doesn't handle heavy photo paper well - which is a bit strange for a so-called photo printer. If you hold each sheet and help it to feed it will work. But ...... for goodness sake. Your best bet is to sell it on e-bay and buy something that will handle heavy paper.
