there is lines in black print
When I xerox with my Epson l210, it come linings in black side
remove your cartridges and grab a cotton ball and some alcohol and under the black cartridge clean with damp cotton ball and then try again and that should take care of the problem :)
Please do a print head alignment from the printer driver.
That’s either an air in the system or a clog problem. Sadly, on the factory CISS Epsons the problem is servicing it is much harder, due to how they embed the CIS on some while others are snap-in units like the 3rd party units that have been used before this system for years. These things and the firmware bomb practice on the “black shell cart” Epsons (2010+) as I refer to them killed their viability for me due to the fact I mostly scan with these things and if I need to print, I’m not blowing $50 on ink for small runs.
The old ones like the 88/69/68 started their present BS train (physical wetness sensor), and the “desirable” models like the T048 cart series printers such as the R200 are 10+ years old, and a support question mark :(. Seriously - used business laser>any Epson (even with 134k pages on the clock, especially if it still runs strong!)
NORMALLY I advise against this with Epsons which are a question, but try a printhead cleaning and see if it makes a dent on the issue. If it does, you may need to “deep clean” the printhead. If not, then you have an air issue. I am going against the “no printhead cleaning” rule because these are a proper PITA to take apart - especially 3rd gen.
For air issues, you need to remove the CIS system, and force ink through the head directly with compatible ink (find open box Epson bottles, or 100% compatible 3rd party - NEVER MIX BRANDS BLIND WITH EPSON as it tends to “bind” and often leads to a FUBAR printer), get the “cartridge block” out and then push ink through. You want direct head access for this, to get the best results. Injecting it through the carts inserts a layer of complexity you need to avoid on a issue like this.
