Can anyone advise me, please.
I have an Epson Stylus Colour 600 printer. It is about 9 or 10 years old and has worked perfectly well until recently. I like it because the replacement ink cartridges are so cheap.
It has recently started printing black horizontal lines 1cm apart through everything I print. Someone suggested that it might be a faulty ink cartridge, so today I changed both the colour and the black cartridges. After I did this, I did a test print and the lines were still there. Then, as if by magic, without horizontal lines, it printed out two sheets with the options of changing the font and the language settings, and at the end stated "Switch the printer off to save the new settings." As I was happy with the settings as they were, I switched off. Then I switched on again and printed another two sheets without lines. An hour later I tried to print a letter and the lines were back!
I have looked in the trouble shooting guide in the manual. This problem isn't mentioned.
Can anyone advise me how to fix this problem, please. Or can anyone suggest another printer that would be cheap to replace the ink.
Thank you. :?
