Why do my photo prints take days to dry?

I am using an EPSON PHOTO STYLUS 750 with genuine EPSON inks and my prints take days to be touch dry.
I have used different photo papers and still have problems.
Anybody any ideas?
I have resorted to cooking them over the radiators!

except, have you got your printer set up for the right paper settings - Photo paper, or Premium photo glossy?

They should be dry as they finish printing, are you sure the printer is not faulty?

my photo prints are a slightly tacky just after printing but not wet and are dry in a few mins.

as above select the correct paper in printer/properties/main if set to normal plain paper there may be too much ink being used.still should not be wet though i think.

100gm + would make a difference ideal around 170gm paper or the dedicated photo glossy paper.

If you have been using 80gm the ink soaks into the paper and can be visable on the opposite side.

Are you using compatible cartridges ? it may be the quality of these or possibly that the inkheads or the ink resouviour inside the printer is fairly full and neads a cleaning service.
