The results of your Epson L3110 printer are striped? The way to solve it is very easy

Why, follow the steps in this article. How are you? Hopefully you and all of us are always in good health.

In this article, Mimin will share experiences in overcoming yield problems striped print on the Epson L3110 printer when used to print document.

So, the story is that about a week ago, Mimin was using a printer Epson L3110 at home to print your thesis for exams.

Mimin then put the paper into the printer, then executed the command print as usual, and the printer starts the printing process.

However, there is something strange about the print results, the writing printed above the paper appears streaky, as if the ink did not print perfectly.

Mimin thought oh maybe this is because the L3110 printer hasn't been working for a few days used, so the ink does not flow completely.

Mimin then repeats the print command hoping that the print results will improve, but it turns out it still has the same lines as the first one.

It seems that this printer really needs further treatment and that's fortunate mimin has already overcome a similar problem, only on the Epson printer series other.

However, whatever the printer series, the cause of striped print results is the same.. OK, here's the description...

Causes of Epson L3110 Striped Print Results

For your information, the striped print results on the Epson L3110 printer are caused by a problem with the printer head component which results in the ink output path being disrupted so that the document does not print perfectly.

The problems that often occur with printer head components include:

  • Dirty or clogged is caused by residual ink deposits covering the nozzle.
  • Damaged so it can no longer be used.

Print results that are dotted, striped or blurry are mostly influenced by the print head components, although sometimes they also occur because the ink hose is caught in air.

To find out the condition of the print head, you can do this by checking the nozzle.

To overcome striped print results on the Epson L3110 printer, you can do this by running the Head Cleaning command.

Head cleaning aims to clean the printhead components from all dirt or remaining ink so that the ink output path can run smoothly again.

The Head Cleaning command itself can be done manually using the buttons on the printer (without a PC/laptop) or it can also be done with the help of the Windows system (using a PC/laptop).

OK, here I explain the two methods...
