Epson WorkForce 40 Inkjet Printer

Selected FAQ

What should I do if there are lines running through the printed image?
Try the following:

  • Print a nozzle check pattern. If there are gaps in the lines, clean the print head nozzles.

  • Select a higher Quality Option or Print Quality and turn off High Speed mode in the Windows or Mac OS X 10.5 or 10.3 and 10.4 printer software.

  • Make sure the paper type or media type setting matches the paper you loaded.

  • Make sure the printable side of the paper is loaded face up in the sheet feeder. It’s usually brighter or whiter.

  • The ink cartridges may need replacing.

  • With Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.4 or Mac OS X 10.5 (in the Print Settings pop-up menu), try using Automatic mode.

  • Align the print head.

  • The printer won’t operate properly if it’s tilted or at an angle. Place it on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the base in all directions.
