    Hi I have an Epson DX8400 All In One Printer I have had no problem since I bought it about four years ago but I was printing off a document and I noticed it has bits missing across the page I have cleaned it and used up catridges doing it and put in new catridges but it still does it, is it done.

    Check the fuser and roller pickups. Could clean the heads.

    I checked the heads using the Epson utility and the nozzle print out was ok.

    Does it just do it on certain files.
    Test others files or documents.
    If other files print normally; then, the file that causes the problem maybe corrupt.

    Also, if the printer is doing it on all documents, try re-installing the driver and/or printer from scratch...
    Remove all vestiges of the software(s) and drivers including any scanner software, utilities, etc.

    Sorry, it is still not working properly.
    It may be just on it last leg... You can either tear it down and try to service it... which is real fun (being sarcastic here).
    Or, get a new one.

    Do what I do when time to get a new printer... Write down all the features you need or want; like, DPI, paper handling, photo needs, scanning ability, fax ability, ink costs, wireless or not, bluetooth or not, network capable or not, android support (or support for other OSes), etc.
    Then, start pricing them. What one person thinks is great, may not suit your needs.
