What causes white specks on prints?
Dec 28, 2012

Hello everyone,

Happy Holidays!

Just started using my new Epson 3880 printer and really like it. I do have a question with regard to specks on some of my prints.

Ive noticed that on about one out of every 4 or 5 that i get a single tiny speck of white that is somewhat noticeable (more on dark colors of course) and they are totally random. Im not sure if it is dust on the paper, a printer issue or an ink issue.

What ive done up to this point is simply reprint the image and that has worked fine, but of course its a piece of paper and ink wasted and somewhat annoying. I have run a check in the Print Utility and all looks good there.

Have you ever had this happen and if so how did you deal with it? Any tips/suggestions/comments would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for your help! 

best to you,
