My printout is blurry or smeared. What should I do?

  • First make sure you are using paper recommended by Epson. Remove each sheet from the output tray as it is printed. Do not touch or allow anything to come into contact with the printed side of paper with shiny finishes. After printing, documents that are printed on glossy media should not be handled for a few hours to allow the ink to set.

    Follow these steps to clean inside the printer:

    1. Turn on the printer.
    2. Load and eject dry paper several times.

    If the problem persists, ink may have leaked inside the printer.
    Wipe the inside of the printer with a soft, clean cloth.
