    I have been printing images on my epson 9900 beautifully until suddenly today, without knowledge of changing any setting, my images are being printed as a series of vertical bands containing the same light ghost image of only 2 inches of the image repeatedly over and over across the paper! Crazy! I have done the usual suspects of alignment, head cleaning, high speed off, power off, multiple images etc. I am at a total loss as I can find nothing on the internet that others have posted. 911!!!! Help!

    Hi Zag,
    Have you found the solution? I recently posted the same problem. Thank you
    Hi friends,
    I would like to ask you about a problem I have with my Epson 9900. I am desperate because I cannot find the solution anywhere. As you can see in the image that I send you, the printer prints gray lines around any image, it is as if it could not mask the gray color. All other colors go perfectly. It is a printer problem, it does not matter from which program you print or from a different computer, the problem continue. A simple nozzle check gives this problem.
    Forgive my audacity to disturb you, but perhaps you have ever seen this and can suggest a solution.
    Infinitely grateful

    What settings did you select when printing. Looks like it may either be a fast setting of printing which can leave those lines or a incorrect setting that isn't matching the media properly.

    Or it may be the image itself where it's set up to do this on the print; not the space the image isn't hitting. It could be different reasons, but normally make sure nozzles are firing properly, media type and other settings are selected correctly. If all good, it's probably the mage. Hopefully not the head. Even though nozzle checks and cleanings may look ok, you're not able to see every nozzle issue since there are near 1000 nozzles per color and they are microscopic.


    Can you provide a picture of this issue. Sometimes details may be ok, but seeing a visual may help better with options.
