I have an Epson L130 at home and it works fine but from last 2-3 days it has been printing double letters for some reasons I do not know. I have checked the cartridges and inkhead and everything seems to be fine with it. I have also tried a hard reset but nothing helped. Can anyone here help me resolve the issue?
If your Epson printer is printing double characters then you have to check these troubleshooting measures:
Sometimes, a print job gets stuck due to a number of reasons. At that time, you should do a simple thing i.e., cancel all print jobs. If your Epson printer is still printing garbage text then perform a hard shut down on your Epson Printer that is accomplished by pressing the Power Off button.
If you are unable to perform a hard shut down on printer then disconnect the printer from the power supply as a last resort.
Once your Epson printer stopped printing double characters then restore the power supply and connect print the page again. If still, your Epson printer is printing double characters then send a different print job.
By doing this, you will understand the problem is related to the file or the communication between printer and computer.
Corrupted drivers may be the main reason behind printing double characters, so you have to reinstall Epson printer driver. Go to the printer’s manufacturer website and downloads the latest drivers by visiting the Downloads section.
Before installing the new driver, first, remove the previous one and go ahead. After reinstalling printer driver, send the original print jobs and check if your Lexmark printer is printing properly.
After reinstalling the Epson printer, if the problem continues then you should replace USB cable because a broken USB cable can corrupt the print jobs. By replacing USB cable can eliminate printing issue that you are facing currently.
If still, Epson printer is not printing letters properly then there is some problem with printer’s internal memory.
I hope these measures will help you to evade the Epson printer printing double letters issue.
