Why is my printer skipping lines when printing?
If you have an Epson printer and your prints are coming out faint, incomplete, or streaked with lines, chances are you have a clogged nozzle –a common problem many users have with Epson printers. It’s unavoidable that print heads clog over time as small amounts of ink residue dry up and collect in the nozzles.

Do not clean the ink nozzles on the bottom of the cartridge. Allow the contacts to dry for about 10 minutes. Clean the contacts in the carriage inside the printer. Either let the carriage contacts sit for 10 minutes to allow the cleaned area to dry, or use a new swab to dry it.
