    Printer produces blank lines


    I am operating an Epson Expression XP425 in Windows 10. I am not sure when the problem arose since I rarely use the printer. Printing a page of text I get a blank line approximatel every fourth line. I assumed this to be mechanical but have realised that using the copier function there are no blanks.

    The "break" is crisp, I may get lines of text cleanly cut off at half height. What I have also realised is that, on my most recent test page, blocks of text that had been formatted to only cover part of the page width to allow a photo insert did not have gaps, nor did the photos.

    I have tried contacting Epson and using the Windows "troubleshooter, without success. Any ideas?

    :)

  3. After installing W10 my printer produces blank pages.

    Hello

    Since installing Windows 10 my printer produces blank pages. Actions so far...

    Contacted OEM for Epson: updated latest driver and followed all their actions, can print their test page in full colour/B&W

    followed the instructions for the windows printer fix, except the spooler delete files as I cannot find them using %windir%\System32\spool\PRINTERS,

    So far I can print a test page but cannot print from the net, word or pdf.

    Any further advice appreciated, thanks!!
