Q:
What should I do if my printout is blurry or smeared?
A:
Check the following:

  • Make sure your paper meets the specifications for your product.


  • Use EPSON papers to ensure proper saturation and absorption of genuine EPSON inks.


  • Make sure the paper type setting in your product software matches the type of paper you loaded.


  • Remove each sheet from the output tray as it is printed.


  • Avoid handling printouts on glossy paper right after printing to allow the ink to set.


  • Turn off any high speed settings in your product software.


  • Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged. Then clean the print head, if necessary.


  • Align the print head.


  • Clean the paper path.


  • Note: Your product will not operate properly while tilted at an angle. Place it on a flat, stable surface that extends beyond the base of the product in all directions.
