Thin dark lines across Epson prints
Oct 8, 2010

My Epson RX595, ~ 3 years old, recently added some thin dark lines across prints, about 1" apart. Obviously not blocked jets but I ran the clear jets thing anyway, and the dark lines went away. Until next day, when they returned. Sometimes they would clear by themselves. IIRC these were all printed from Photoshop CS4. After days of frustration I got an Artisan 810 , which was fine for a few days. Then - occasional dark lines again.

I had not yet taken the RX595 to the recycling depot - I'll hold it until I get this resolved.

I'll be doing some more rigorous tests, e.g. printing from QImage and Picasa, and from another computer.

My 'net searches found several reports of dark lines, but no clues about a fix.

  • Perhaps I should not have got another Epson, but the likely alternatives seem to have their own problems, and my 7880 has been and is great.
