Epson Epson Stylus Photo 1200

Epson 1200

I have an Epson 1200 which prints fine except sometimes it prints black and yellow ink where ever yellow ink should be. The black is always a lower percentage than the yellow except when I print the test page (the one with four diagonal bars of each color) I get 100\% black and 100\% yellow where the yellow bars should be. Any suggestions?
Try cleaning the cap assembly and wiper pad.

David: Its also possible that your problem is being caused by a build-up of dust, dirt, lint and hair that sticks to the wet ink on the bottom side and backside areas of the Printhead Assembly. That build-up acts like a small paint brush and can transfer wet ink to the paper as the printhead assembly moves back-n-forth. Sometimes that build-up simply smears the wet ink already on the paper, during the normal printing process. Once those two areas are thoughly cleaned, the problem may simply go away. Check for a couple of e-mails from me that should help in that area, in case you want to do that cleaning and at least eliminate that possibility...Good Luck! Denny Conway
