You will need to go to the support section for Epson, and read their troubleshooter, but I reckon you will have to manually remove the cartridges and then clean/ change them, then clean the printer, try then re-calibrating after that and see how you go.
I hope this is the fixya for you and look forward to hearing how you get on.
You don't say exactly, but I'm guessing that scanning when laying the document flat on the glass (ie, not using the document feeder) you get a printout that is fine. It's only when you use the document feeder that you get the vertical lines on the printout?
Epson repair tech in my area says this is a common problem. It is due to the aging of the calibration strip (the white strip at the underside of the flat bed glass near the "home" position). It shrinks after years and can't provide correct calibration.
This is a problem only with the pages fed through the document scanner. It sounded weird to me, but the tech said he stocks lots of replacement glass and does lots of these repairs to Epson scanners.
It might be cheaper to buy a new scanner rather than get yours fixed. He said it's pretty inexpensive to do this repair, but scanners are also pretty cheap.
The Calibration of the scanner and calibration of the monitor - a complex process. Prcess requiring special equipment and experienced specialist. Not advantageously buy high-priced equipment for Calibration of its one scanner and monitor. If work high skilled, you it is necessary to return in service for calibration if you want this execute themselves, recommend to build apart monitor on test list, but then on test table by means of regulations adjusting the scanner on colour and density of the scene to build scanner

Here's the tip I used years ago on CRT's suffering this same fate.
Take one of your printed photo's and hold it next to the screen (with the same photo on it running in whatever software you want to print from)
Now using the monitors controls, make the monitor look like your photo that you have printed.
Nice and dark now like the photo, good =)
Now adjust the software to what you want it to look like when printed.
Looking good so far..ok
Save those settings in the program. then re adjust the monitor back to how you want it to look normally (as it was before basically)
Not the ideal soloution, but it works and it's free.
This sounds like a calibration problem. The first thing I would try is to un-install the driver, download the latest drivers from the manufacturer's website then reinstall the new software.
I'm not familiar with the drivers of this printer but look to see if there is a printer/monitor calibration area try the settings there.
The other obvious place to look in is the software you are printing from. Try printer/Monitor calibration in the help menu
PIM uses the exif-info in your original jpg. I'm not sure, but I think if you edit the picture this exif becomes useless (because it relates to the original), even if you save the file including the exif-info.
Also, you apparently you need additional printing software to make use of PIM. This was in the news on this site sometime ago. If you search, you can find out where to download this software.
If you've got photoshop, you should also have a program called adobe gamma. With this you can calibrate your monitor. You should be able to find it under start->configuration.
When you have calibrated your monitor, you should of course not use the settings on your printer that push up the saturation/contrast of your images, or else you will get Disney-colors. (I made the mistake of using 'digital camera correction' on the 1270 myself).
I get good results printing from photoshop, with a calibrated monitor as well as some media profiles for the paper I use (just calibrating your monitor will probably be enough to get pictures that are close to what is on the screen, I just haven't tried that yet). If you want to calibrate your monitor, there are some good tips on http://come.to/digitaldarkroom. (it's where I got what I know about this). Btw, I cant seem to reach the site right now, but it will probably be up again in a few hours.
