    Looks like you have a bad driver. Uninstall the printer completely and download the drivers from Epson directly.

    If that doesn’t work your printer cable might be the problem.

    Most often when I’ve seen garbage print from an Epson its usually software related (drivers)

    Also check bios setting.

    An easy way of checking the printer and cable is to install it on another computer and seeing if it works. Use xp if possible , drivers are built in, if not use the one listed on the Epson site.

    If it doesn’t work on another computer I would suspect main logic board. In that case buy a new printer!
