I recently acquired an Epson 9600 and started fresh with a new print head, but I can’t get this thing to make clear prints no matter what I try. I’ve run all the alignment sequences half a dozen times, but every print still seems to have its edges printed double, ie, every line is printed twice slightly offset. I have images, but they don’t seem to show up here when I put the html links in this post.
The color blocks on the alignment prints seem incorrect as well, and don’t look like the ones shown in the Epson service manual. If the patters for the alignment aren’t even right, I don’t see how doing the alignment again will improve anything.
I also keep getting intermittent ‘no paper’ errors even when fresh paper is loaded. Is there a chance that a paper sensor could be contributing to my woes?
My art business really needs easy access to large high-res printing, but I’m at my wits’ end with this thing. Worse, I’ve yet to find a repair place that will even look at it. Help?
