Need second opinion! horizontal lines every couple inches
PLEASE, NEEDING A SECOND OPINION BEFORE I MAKE NEW PURCHASE
Hello, I have an Epson Stylus Photo 1400 series wide printer. I realize it is obsolete but it has been working just fine until... I am getting a horizontal line every 2-3 inches when I print. Ex. shipping label on reg. white paper, picture the bar code with a white line going through horizontally. Like I said it happens evenly every 2-3 inches.
I've done the regular maintenance i.e. nozzle check, head cleaning etc.. I have cleaned everything I can get at with alcohol swabs, removed ink cartridges and cleaned in there, I've run through cleaning sheets...I'm thinking something may be stuck on a roller or something that I can't see because it is so consistent.
I have a shop on Etsy and need to print a lot of shipping labels particularly. If this sounds like something you can advise me on I would appreciate. If you say to, this old granny is willing to follow the steps to disassemble my printer to get at the cause. I Just need to know where to look...Thank you so much
