Is that top half or left hand half? If it's only the top half it sounds to me like the USB link isn't responding to a request for more data. Some information about your computer and version of Windows might help.
Hi hzhzhz. Does the printer head scan the full width of the page? If it does that without leaving any ink on the page then I think it has to be a fault in the printer. I'm guessing here, but it sounds like either a mechanical fault causing the print head to be lifted off the paper, or a logic fault causing the addressing of the print head position to be missread. Is the edge of the print precise or blurred and coloured?
Lots of possibilies here . You will have to run a test or two. 1. Uninstall the printer and reinstall following precisely the Epson instructions - it is very fussy on this point. Check also the usb cable. If you able, swap slots Do not forget also to turn off A/V software whilst doing this. Then run a test page. Try also printing an image. Then come and tell us all Also- What Operating system 98/ME/2000/XP?
Ive just installed printer in another pc and using the usb cable it has always used. The printer printed a page of text and graphics perfectly. So the problem lies in its usual pc. I'll keep you posted. Thanks all.
