Epson 1000 ICS All-in-One Printer

Selected FAQ

What can I do about vertical banding or misalignment?
If your printouts contain misaligned vertical lines, you may need to align the print head. You can align the print head directly from the EPSON 1000 ICS control panel. Load plain paper that's at least 8.27 inches (210 mm) wide to prevent ink from spraying inside the EPSON 1000 ICS and smudging your printouts.

1. Make sure the EPSON 1000 ICS is turned on and plain letter-size paper is loaded.
2. Press the left Menu button on the control panel several times until you see Print Head Alignment and then press the Copy button to print a test page.
3. On the test page, select the pattern with the two vertical lines most precisely printed on top of each other. You may need to use a magnifying glass or loupe. Select one pattern each for rows 1, 2, and 3.
4. Use the Value buttons to select the number of the best pattern for the first row, then press the Copy button. Repeat this step for the second and third rows.
5. If pattern 8 was the best aligned in each row, your print head is properly aligned. If other patterns were better aligned, repeat the steps above.
