I have an Epson printer that's a year old. Why is it printing stripes?

This can be caused by several things. First, do you print with it often or do you leave it off for days at a time? Leaving it off causes the ink residue in the heads to clog. Do you replace ink cartridges as soon as they are empty or do you let them sit empty in the printer? You should always have ink in your cartridges and leave your inkjet on. It takes very little power and every so often it circulates the ink so it doesnt clog. If you do leave your printer on and dont let your cartridges sit empty, the problem may be with the specific cartridges you have.
