Q:
What should I do if my printed image has horizontal lines running through it?
A:
Try the following:

  • The print head nozzles may need cleaning.


  • Select a higher Quality Option or Print Quality and turn off High Speed mode in the Windows, Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.4, or Mac OS X 10.5 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 face-up. It’s usually brighter or whiter.


  • The ink cartridges may need replacing.


  • On Mac OS X 10.3 and 10.4 or Mac OS X 10.5, try using Automatic mode.


  • Align the print head.


  • Your Epson 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.
