Sounds to me as if you may have one or more blocked heads, was it OK originally?

If you haven't already done so run off print head check print then try putting it through a cleaning cycle, also check the ink levels to make sure you aren't running low on one or more of the colours (all obvious checks which you may have done but its always best to start at the beginning Smile )

I may be stating the obvious but have you thought about cleaning the printer heads - not talking about running the head clean program on the printer as this can just waste ink but physically using an appropriate cleaner and pad to remove debris from the bottom of the print heads. I've had lines in my prints before, usually photographs and it can be caused by small paper dust particles being caught in the ink jets.

Seems Epsons are prone to this due to the printing process they use.

Check this link for some tips on cleaning the Heads

Hope this helps Eric
