Customer Question
I have a letter...

I have a letter of about 25 lines in Word. About 10 lines print in their entirety including the signature line andebt a couple of ps's. The top line prints the bottom half of the words, next line blank, next bottom half, next 2 has the top half, next blank, next perfect, etc. Hope you can help - have hurricane on the way and need to get this into tomorrow's mail!!!

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model number of your printer? How old is it?

Epson xp-400 about 8 years old.

Technician's Assistant: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?

Dell PC all-in-one. I don'the know what OS is - really miss my IT guy since I retired!

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

Have not printed anything in a while. Earlier in the summer it wouldn't print in black, but that has resolved. I ran it's maintenance things several times.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Printer Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of. Thanks
