I purchased this printer 2 or 3 years ago and I never really used it a lot,I just reinstalled it after not having used it for one year. The installation is correct and ready to use,I put some new cartridges but the printing (I mainly print musical sheets) is not perfect, some lines are missing,the allignement seems o.k though.Of course I got help from some infos on line and I cleaned the head several times as suggested from the manual but the result is still the same,no improvement,what should I do? Many thank's. Thierry.

Re: poor printing quality with my Epson stylus C 66
If it sat for a long time, then some of the nozzels are probably clogged. Running the clean feature helps, but it probably won't work a hundred percent. The best way is to disassemble the whole thing, take the printhead out, and clean the nozzels with a sopping wet cloth. That takes some doing, and there's no manual to tell you how...you just gotta tinker till you can get it apart.

It sounds like your PC is printing to draft everytime, have you checked your printer settings within Control Panel, Printers? If nothing stands out to you then probably best thing to do is a reinstall of the printer driver, 99% of the time this will sort it.

2. TRASH and REINSTALL the drivers 3. Try a different application and file 4using a PHOTO PRINTER (Stylus PHOTO) try to set the QUALITY OPTION to BEST PHOTO or PHOTO RPM 5. Go to PRINTING PREFERENCES and hit ADVANCE 6. Choose the right PAPER TYPE, SIZE and SOURCE then disable HIGH SPEED 7. Once all those are set choose PHOTO RPM under the COLOR MANAGEMENT box and try printing 8. This will print a lot slower but will be using alot of ink and eliminate the lines
