Epson Photo 700 Problem

Having a problem with my Epson Photo 700. 25\% of the time when I start printing the printhead will run way to the left and print partly on and partly off of the paper. This happens with both text and with photo's. I can't figure this out. Output is great when it does print on the paper as printhead seems to be fine. Is there something I can adjust to fix this?



Just a thought...how's the carriage guide bar that the printhead / carriage slide on? Is it getting black and sticky from old oil and dirt? If so, wipe as much off as you can and apply some fresh lightweight oil.

I had the same problem,and eventually found the home position sensor to be the problem.
It's only held in position by it's own rather flimsy looking plastic clips,i went to move it and it fell away in my hand.
so i repositioned it and bent the bracket slightly upwards.
I've had no bother since.
