View Full Version : Question re:printer...HELP

We have an Epson Stylus CX7000F inkjet printer. Whenever we change the ink cartridges or do a head cleaning/nozzle charging we get black smears and we still don't get rid of the horizontal lines. Is this something that is going to cost big bucks to get fixed? Is there any place that doesn't charge to look at the problem? I'd rather get a new one that fork out tons of money on this one. Thanks for any info!

When I change cartridges on my printer, I clean the ends of the cartridge with a cue tip and rubbing alcohol before putting them in. I've never had smear problems since I started doing this but the first few times I did. My printer instructions actually recommend it.
