My printout has lines running through it. What should I do?

  • Try the following:
    • The print head nozzles may need to be checked and cleaned.
    • Select a higher Print Quality and turn off High Speed mode in the printer software.
    • Make sure the Media Type setting matches the paper you loaded.
    • Make sure the printable side of the paper is face-up. It's usually brighter or whiter.
    • On a Macintosh, try using Automatic mode.
    • Make sure you're using genuine Epson ink cartridges and you use them within six months after you open the packages.
    • Align the print head.
    • The ink cartridges may need replacing.
