What if the Epson printer prints with stripes?

When the Epson printer prints with stripes, it does not have to talk about the quality of documents: such defects make an impression unsuitable to further use. The reasons for the emergence of a problem can be a lot, but almost always they are associated with the hardware of the equipment and are quite easy to eliminate. About what to do and how to remove horizontal stripes on the inkjet printer when printing, it is worth talking in more detail.

Manifestation of malfunction

Print Defects – not uncommon when using inkjet and laser printers. Depending on what exactly caused the problem, it will look different on paper. The following options are most common:

  • The Epson printer prints with white stripes, the image is shifted;
  • There are horizontal strips of gray or black when printing;
  • Some colors disappear, the image is partially absent;
  • vertical strip in the center;
  • Defect on the edges of a sheet with 1 or 2 sides, vertical stripes, black;
  • Strips have a characteristic graininess, small points are visible;
  • The defect is repeated at an equal interval, the band is located horizontally.

This is the main list of found defects with which the printer owner may encounter.

It is also important to consider that troubleshooting on laser models is easier than in the jet.

Causes and their elimination

Colored and black and white prints when the seal defects appear are unreadable. About what to do and how to remove them, many questions arise. Solving problems will be different, it all depends on whether the inkjet is a printer or laser. When using dry dye, and not liquid ink, act when the bands appear it is necessary.

  • Check the level of toner. If the strip appears in the center of the sheet, this may indicate that it is not enough. The wider there will be a defective printing area, the sooner the refueling will need. If when checking it turns out that the cartridge is full, the problem is the feed system: it will have to contact the service center.

  • Check the bunker with toner residues. If it is full, stripes made up on a sheet, composed of a variety of small points begins to appear. Clear bunker yourself quite easily. If the problem persists, it is worth checking the positioning of the dosing blade: most likely, it occupied the wrong position when installing.

  • Check shaft. If the strips are wide and white, perhaps on its surface there was a foreign body. It may be forgotten clip, piece of paper or adhesive tape. It is enough to find and remove this item to disappear. If the bands fill the entire sheet, have deformations and curvatures, then, most likely, the surface of the magnetic shaft is dirty or cleaning requires an optical system of the device.

  • Check magnetic shaft. About his wear says the appearance of transverse black stripes on a sheet. They are weakly scratched, distributed evenly. Eliminate a malfunction when the breakdown can only be replaced by a defective node: the entire cartridge or the shaft directly.

  • Check photored. That it requires a replacement will report the emergence of a dark strip of 1 or 2 edges of the sheet. The worn item is not subject to restoration, it can only be dismantled to install a new. With the appearance of equidistant bands located horizontally, the problem is in the violation of the contact between the drum and the magnetic shaft.

Cleaning or complete replacement of the cartridge will solve the task.

In case of Laser printers Of particular difficulties in restoring the performance of the device usually do not occur. It is enough just to step by step to check all possible sources of malfunction of the device, and then eliminate the reasons for the appearance of the strips.

IN jet models are all a bit more difficult. Here are used liquid Ink drying with prolonged simple equipment, Most of the defects are connected with this.

In case of Printed equipment in which the SRHCH or a single cartridge for monochrome printing is applied, Strips also do not appear by themselves. Their occurrence always have reasons. Most often they are related to the fact that the ink in the tank is tritely ends: Their level can be checked through a special tab in the printer settings or visually. If the device is rarely used, the liquid dye may thicken and dried inside the printed head. In this case, it will have to be cleared in a software manner (suitable only for separately installed elements) in the following order:

  • Place a pure paper in the printer tray;
  • Through the control center, open the service section;
  • find the item “Cleaning the print head and check nozzle”;
  • launch the cleaning process;
  • Check the print quality 2-3 hours after its completion;
  • repeat the operation if necessary.

In the models of inkjet printers, the head of which is located in the cartridge, eliminate the defect will help only Full replacement of the entire block. Cleaning here will be impossible.

The reason for the appearance of strips in jet printers can be Depressurization of the cartridge. If this happens, when dismantling the part from its body, the scattering paint will appear. In this case, the old cartridge is sent to disposal by setting a new one in its place.

When using SSRCH, the problem with strips on prints is often associated with a system loop: It can be shifted or damaged. It is quite difficult to diagnose this problem independently, one can only make sure that the contacts are not departed, there are no mechanical clamps.

The next stage of the diagnostics of the inkjet printer – Inspection of air hole filters. If ink got into them, the staff work will be broken: dried paint will begin to interfere with air exchange. To remove stripes when printing, it is enough to replace the scored filters in good quality.

If all these measures did not help, the cause of bad printeering and image offset can be Encoder tape. It is easy to find: this film is located along the carriage.

Cleaning is carried out by a lounge napkin moistened in a special solution.

Prevention measures

As prevention measures recommended for use on printers of different models, you can use Periodic cleaning of the most vulnerable blocks. For example, before each refueling (especially independent), the cartridge needs to be cleaned, removing the traces of dried ink from the nozzle. If in the design there is a hopper with a spent toner, it is also empty after each new refueling.

Revealing pollution on the surface of the nozzle or printhead, it is important not to use conventional water or alcohol for their cleanings. Optimally, if specialized fluid will be purchased for these purposes, intended for cleaning office equipment nodes. In extreme cases, it can be replaced with the composition for washing windows.

On inkjet printers periodically it is worth checking the calibration of the head. Especially if the equipment was transported or moved, as a result of which the carriage changed its location. Stripes in this case will appear just after changing the location of the printer, while the cartridges will be normally filled, and all tests will show excellent results. Fix the position will help log in to the control center, followed by the launch of automatic calibration. The printed head will fall into place, and the defects displayed on paper will go with it.
