  1. Thanks ahead for your input
    i have 2 Epson Stylus pro color printer
    both show the same problem
    often (15% of the time) it start printing in the middle of the page...
    i can feel it when it is to do that cause the sound of the motor sqeek
    but it is not lube it is more like a ac signal driving the stepping for a
    sec.

    The print head assy and roller assy may require changing. It may be worn
    or defective. If the printer is out of warranty, it will not pay to
    service it, unless it is a very high end model. In any case, Epson will
    not sell the parts or service information, you will have to bring them
    the printer.

    I have three Epson 1200 Photos and one of them had similar problem.
    With me, it was special bit of teflon that was inserted in plastic head
    holder and was meant to slide over metal and give the head more or les
    constant height over the paper.

    That bit has fallen off its place, so whole holder was kinda hanging and
    head assembly was dangerously low. Every now and then head has collided
    with something else during printing and that caused effect that you
    mention. Take a peek at the point where head holder slides over the metal
    area...


    I would snap a photo or two, but right now I'm in a middle of conversion
    from Win2k to Gentoo Linux and I am lacking the tools at the moment....


    Regards,
