Bum! not solved.
I have just put a sheet of Ilford Galerie Gold Mono Silk through and there is a strip of wet black ink vertically down the top of the first image (4 to a page).
Its a "pool" about 1" long by 1/8" wide
I'll have to get in touch with the Epson Chat help line

Just run off a colour page and this time its chucking out horizontal strips of wet ink across the page.
Its aggravating as the print quality is still as good as ever, but I can't keep on wasting paper like this
Well, that may be a result, so far I'm very impressed with the Epson Chat Helpline.
I've been told that there appears to be a leak in the printer, they confirmed I have a 3 year warranty and they have arranged for an Epson engineer to contact me to arrange a home vist to sort the problem
If it all works I shall be highly delighted! (I've heard some bad stories about their help in the past, but so far, so very good )
Watch this space
just had a call from the Epson Engineer to tell me he will be bringing round a replacement printer shortly!
Apparently it comes without inks though, so I will have to transfer all my cartidges over - hope that doesn't result in any problems
Still - if it solves my problem I will be a happy bunny
the good news, he arrived as promised
the bad news, the ethernet port on the replacement printer is not working so he will have to take it away, leaving me waiting for another replacement, this time to be deliverd by courier.
Wasted a fair bit of ink cleaning the nozzles on the duff replacement so I'm going to try to get Epson to send down one that works + some replecement inks
Hmm, no luck with replacement ink but I "should" be getting a working printer tomorrow - fingers crossed
Well, the 2nd machine arrived today and seems to be working fine, with one really irritating problem (which I feel I should be able to sort myself but I'm being stupid today)
The only way I can get it to work is using the USB port
The previous machine was set up and worked fine using LAN but for some reaon I can't get either the LAN or Wireless connection to work
Epson help has not been helpful in this case (I followed their suggestions but with no success)
Has anyone any ideas what I need to be doing?
The printer LCD is showing a strong Wireless signal is being received and I have set the router password correctly yet its not showing the printer on the driver page
I have rebooted the machine and reset my router
It can't find the printer via LAN set up either
Any help appreciated
I've finally sorted the problem and will detail the solution in case anyone else runs up against the same difficvulty in th future
It turned out that I had to manually reset the IP address of the printer then create a new port for it in Printer Properties and assign the new address manually to that port (it seems that it was trying to find the old printer IP via an auto routine previously assigned)
About 6 hours wasted time in total but at least its all up and running
Shame the Epson Help didn't spot the problem and offer the quick solution - but at least the replacement machine appears to be working fine now
