Hi!

I have Epson SureColor P600 printer.
I bought it six months ago and have used it sporadically about once a week. The mileage is very low. I have noticed that my prints are miss aligned.

The problem occurs regardless:
Attempts to align the head
Type of paper (I use only original Epson paper)
Single or double-sided printing options on/off

What could be wrong? The printer looks very clean inside, when not in use I covered it with the factory foam it was wrapped in.

Look at pictures only few lines of text are correct.

Is this a new printer ? Since when do you observe the effect ? It appears to be a horizonal alignment problem - is the printout the same if you turn off bidirectional printing - there is typically fast/high speed option on the regular driver page.

Yes the printer is new. If I turn off bidirectional printing the problem still exist. Calibrating the head does nothing, so I gave up and posted here on the forum.

Is there any option to do horizontal alignment?

I'm not familiar with the details of the head alignment for the P600, there are variations between different models, what do you get as the first page when you start the alignment process via the driver ?
Since when do you have the problem - have you been in contact with Epson service already ?

I have only 9 lines of squares. Its look like only vertical alignment not horizontal. I have this problem since two weeks.

I think it is too early. I printed ~70 sheets of Archival Matte A3 and maybe 40 of Photo A4.

I have this problem since two weeks.
this is irritating me - what happened 2 weeks ago - a new driver installation on another computer ? Some malfunctcion with an error code ?
Wiping off the timing strip is a standard measure in case of alignment problems , and it's always good to have a clean timing strip.
And I'm puzzled as well that changes to the alignment settings is not resulting in a visible change - could it be that the last hit on the enter key is missing ?
Please scan the page with the alignment patterns and post the scan here - let's see if we can go through it.
