Epson R1800 Double image/Ghost image
Sep 14, 2008


New to this forum so hope I am doing this right. I have an Epson R1800 that until recently has worked perfectly.
Head checks and cleans are all fine- no issues with nozzle prints.

However, printing on Best Photo, uni-directional, gives both banding about every inch or so and worst still there is a sort of ghost outline of the image just to the right. It is as if someone has pulled the paper slightly when printing.

I have tried aligning the head manually and using automatic. I have replaced the cartridges and done numerous cleans but still no change.

If I print on RPM setting the problem is less obvious but the image still has a grainy appearance and nothing like it used ot be

Can anyone suggest anything I am missing? Is the printer toast? I have searched the forum and can't find anything specific but apologies if I have missed something
