Epson Epson PictureMate Photo

epson D92 Printer

When printing photo's (4" by 6")using 180g glossy photo paper, I am seeing three distinct serrated lines on the print - I have re-aligned and cleaned the printer heads etc.

Any help would be appreciated
I'm not familiar with this particular printer but home inkjets often use small, spiked disks which press against the surface of the prints as part of their paper feed mechanism where a rubber roller would be inappropriate as it would be touching onto the freshly printed and still wet ink. Sounds very much like the lines are a symptom of this ...you may be able to see these parts if you shine a torch inside and look through the openings at some odd angles.

If this is the case your best bet is to try a lighter paper - say 130g/m²

Hope this helps,

Mike
