Epsom 1290 inkjet printer makes black lines on pri

  Adam Patrick 16:09 21 Sep 2009


I own an Epson 1290 inkjet printer.

Has worked well in the past but recently in last few days there has been these black lines down the prints.

From people's experience, would you suggest this was a specific cause that can be solved or could it simply be a sign of old age ?

Any help would be appreciated

ink leakage onto rollers is always a favourite a good clean and a run of blotting paper though it may solve your problem.

I'm still running an Epson 600 that's got to be 7 or 8 years old now.

This can also be an indicator the waste collection pad are getting full.
To remedy this the machine will have to be stripped down and the pads washed and dried.
