WF2510 printer driven by WiFi
Asus laptop, 8 years old, with W10.
Non-Epson ink cartridges.

Affecting only black printing, every 7 or so lines of text
is blurred, faint or missing.

I have changed the black ink cartridge to no avail.

Any clues or solutions, please?

TIA.

Is the replacement cartridge genuine or non-genuine?
What is the expiry date?

That old enough for folklore? There is a printer group somewhere.

Ah, ink ribbon on 9 pin dot matrix. That explains it. So the 7th pin
might be worn out. ;-)

Get a daisy-wheel printer. ;-)

SCNR.

Well I have no idea. Try the printer group if no one can help here.

I think you'll find that the 2510 has ink tanks. It does not
have cartridges with a printing head.
.
Try cleaning the print heads using the cleaning process
that you can direct from the maintenance dialog box.
