I see horizontal or vertical lines in my printout. What should I do?

  • Perform a nozzle check from the printer's control panel or the Epson printer driver, then do one of the following:

    • If there are gaps in the nozzle check pattern, clean the print head nozzles. See your product's online User's Guide for instructions.
    • If there are no gaps in the nozzle check pattern, try the following:

      Horizontal Banding

      • Increase the print resolution.
      • Turn off Simple Settings and uncheck the High Speed setting in the printer driver.
      • Select an alternate paper profile for ink coverage.
      • Select the correct paper type in the printer driver.

      Vertical Banding

      • Turn off Simple Settings and uncheck the High Speed setting in the printer driver.
      • Align the print head.

      Note: If cleaning the print head or performing a print head alignment does not resolve the problem, try adjusting the paper feed on the product control panel. To adjust the paper feed, do the following: Select > Paper Settings > paper source > Print Adjustments > Paper Feed Adjust > Manual, then follow the on-screen instructions to make adjustments.
