Epson Epson Stylus Color 600

Epson stylus color 600 test pattern problem

The Good News: The cleaning solution appears to have worked.

The Bad News: When I print the nozzle check pattern, the stepped pattern with the top row consisting of two sections of black steps side by side, and the cyan, magenta, and yellow sections below, are printing double, triple, and quadruple lines where there are supposed to be single lines. This is repeatable and occurs with three different computers including a Mac, but prints slightly different each time. Also, it will print text, but the text is difficult to read and has the multiple layered lines that appear in the test, though much smaller. Everything looks ok inside the case. Is it possible that the ribbon like wire running along the top of the printer could cause this sort of problem if damaged in an area I haven't spotted? It looks like it could be delicate. I have another Stylus 600 that prints fine with the same drivers. Thanks again - Steve
Steve,I have the same printer with the same problem. Took the entire head out and soaked it in warm water and put it back. did not help. I quit. I'll find another brand of printer (HP maybe).
