The quality of my printed output is unacceptable. What should I do?

  • Verify that you are using the correct printer driver for your printer model. Make sure the Media Type setting matches the paper or media loaded. Let the printer driver automatically select the settings for the best quality.

    Make sure that the printable side of the paper is face up, and check the type of paper being used. EPSON brand paper, which is specifically designed for the Stylus ink jet series of printers, delivers the best-printed output. If your output is faint, check the printer driver to make sure you have selected a print resolution other than Economy.

    Try testing the printer on another computer. This will eliminate the possibility of a defective printer cable, parallel port, or software issue. If you're still experiencing a problem, try replacing the ink cartridges with a genuine EPSON ink cartridges.
