Hi Jan, Funny that you mentioned it's an Epson. I guessed it might be from reading your previous emails before I actually read this one. I have an Epson Stylus Color 880 and it used to work great (it's about 2 years old or so). I've been having nothing but problems with mine lately - lines all throughout the pages, etc. even when I use new ink; I can clean the print heads until the cows come home, and nothing. I bought a lot of ink cartridges for the printer, and I even bought print head cleaning kits, I still can't get it to print right anymore. I've been using more ink to try to clean the print heads than to actually print something! I have tons of baby pictures that I took on my digital camera and I can't print them out. Tomorrow I'm going to buy some film for my 35 mm camera (if it still works! LOL). In the meantime, I have no idea what to do about the printer. I still have a bunch of ink cartridges for it. I think for sure the print heads are shot. If you get another printer, maybe you should get another brand. I think I might. The Epson's print heads are in the printer. Some printers have the print heads on the cartridge, which is better because every time you change a cartridge, you get new print heads. The Epson was great, but it only lasted two years. My brother had an Epson, too, and his didn't last that long, either. So, I, too, would like to know info about a good printer, not too expensive (the Epson I bought was $150) but that prints pretty nice photos from digital cameras. Thanks.

The first Epson quit working within the warranty period and was replaced by the company. This is the replacement and has worked flawlessly until this little hiccup.
