Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer
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
