What would cause my Epson SX405 to produce veritcal red lines when printing photos?

by on September 4, 2011

Q: My Epson SX405 printer produces vertical red lines about 2cm apart when I print off photographs. Epson said fault could be that I was not using their ink! (only one of the 4 cartridges is Epson) They also said it could be a fault with the motherboard. Any help would be appreciated.

    You might have some bad ink cartridges. I suggest you try to replace them to find the the problem. Trying actual epson ink might be worth a shot to. However since printers cost less than an ink cartridge you might just want to try a different printer.
