Epson Epson Stylus Color 740

Horizontal stripes when printing with Epson SC740

I was given an Epson Stylus Color 740 that dows not work well. Thin horizontal black lines appear over the real printed matter throughout the whole travel of the printhead. from the "nozzle check" test it appears that these lines correspond to the lowest black nozzle only. The problem usually disappears after printing several pages, or if the printer is left turned on for some time. It also depends on the printing density selected (normal/fine/superfine...). Any suggestions?
