A. Printer prints with with strips
 
Reason: insufficient pressure or clogged ink nozzles
Decision: Turn off and turn on printer,again. At a stage of self-checking - the pump enlarges pressure of inks.
If it didn't help, start procedure of self-cleaning of a printhead (in the printer driver the sheet Maintenance)
If also it didn't help, it is necessary to wash out the nozzles by special solvent:

1. Turn on the printer and at the same moment pull out a power cord from printer.After that you will be able to move freely the carriage with a print head to the left and to get access to the pampers (sponge pad).
2. Heat the bottle with a solvent to 50-60 degrees Celsius (hold it under hot water) and drip on the pampers with slide.
3. Move the carriage with a print head in the extremely right position-nozzles will contact with solvent on a pampers.
4. Wait for 1-2 hours
5. Turn on the printer.
 
Avoid reducing ink below indicated on the bottle(wavy line on the label colors), otherwise pipes can get air!

Decision: should be removed all color profiles from used software.
In the printer driver must be fixed following settings:
-Paper: Epson Quality InkJet
-quality: Photo or Best Photo
-When printing Black & WHITE or Grayscale images change the tone for Gray in the advanced options

Decision: CISS needs a complete washing, bring the printer to our service.
 
C.The printer shows that runs out of ink (ink indicate lamp is red), but ink is still quite
 
First reason: Insufficient ink pressure
Decision: Turn off and turn on printer again. At a stage of self-checking - the pump enlarges pressure of inks.
