    The Epson SC-P900 Printer Review

    Terry, I’m not sure I understand the problem. From your attachment it seems that the group of printed photos are not centered with more margin left than right, and there is a bar of smudged colour down the right side which seems out of place (I’ve highlighted it with the red rectangle in the attached. But I don’t see there anything bleeding off the top.

    I’m sorry I didn’t explain more and used the term bleed wrong. I think my brain was bleeding trying to figure out the problem.

    After 2 1/2 hours with tech support at Epson we figured out it was a defective printer that would only print to 13×19 paper despite being told by the driver to print on 17×22 paper. It appears that all prints were printed as if on 13×19 paper, so nothing was centered even if it was smaller than 13×19. Must be a bad ROM chip or small toad or dwarf causing havoc.

    I have to give Epson support two thumbs up though for their tech staying with me the whole time until we figured it out. It was a far different experience from my 7990 and its recurrent print head failures, where I was politely told “sorry”.

    Sorry for the calamity here! A new printer will be on the way sometime and they will courteously take the old one back.

    That’s the course of action I was going to recommend and the outcome I expected. Very good! Glad to hear it is resolved.

    After re-reading your article, I also couldn’t think of anything I was doing wrong in terms of settings, so I called them and was very pleased with the help.

    It’s really good to hear that the tech support was both knowledgeable and forthcoming.
