SOURCE: Cleaning Printhead on a Epson RX650 Printer

Truely, this is a job best left to the professionals. I have been doing these for a few years now and I can tell you that it is fiddly and tricky. The best solution for cleaning a printhead is through software. This is how the professionals do it and it is the only successful method. Removing the printhead in these unit is only ever done when they are replaced and this is not something that can be done without the epson service software as there is a printhead number that must be entered into the eprom to make the head work.
If cleaning of the head through the soft ware has failed, try moving the head to the left of the unit. where the head parks is the ink system assembly, also known as the purge unit. Make yourself a solution of dishwashing liquid and water, about 70% water. Fill the small pad area that the head sits on to almost over flowing and move the head across to park position. Leave the printer for 24 hours and then conduct the deep clean from your software. If you are still unable to clear the heads, than the head is faulty and will need to be replaced. Again, there is codes to enter through service software that is unavailable to all except registered epson warranty service centres, so it will be something to be done by the professionals.

I hope this is helpfull.

SOURCE: trying to scan to email on Epson Artisan 800

If you are scanning wirelessly, you have to launch the epson scan software from your computer and scan to e-mail from there. You can scan using either professional or home mode.
Please take note that scanning from the printer only supports direct connection, which means you have to plug in the printer to your computer via a usb cable.
If you cannot launch epson scan, please let me know. And include the operating system that you are using too.

Otherwise, it's unorthodox, but some users have found that this works in your situation.

Then reseat the cartridge and print...

SOURCE: print head clogged

Routine maintenance and keeping full ink tanks will prevent this problem, however if you have the problem you can resolve it by doing the following:
1. Clean your print head using denatured alcohol solvent which can be purchased from most hardware stores. If unavailable, use 91% Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol (first aid antiseptic) which is available for less than a dollar at most Walmart pharmacy departments.

*Warning: You may want to use a pair of latex exam gloves as this is a messy process and can stain your fingers.
Time necessary 45-50 minutes
Supplies needed:
Isopropyl Alcohol or denatured alcohol
paper towels
latex gloves
sink, bowls and or basin
can of compressed air
very small screw driver
tablespoon or baby bulb type syringe
warm water

PROCEDURE:
1. Lift print head from printer. It pulls out easily because it is held in with the same down lever that holds the cartridge in place.
2. Put two layers of paper towels in the bottom of a dish to protect sensitive sprayer heads.
3.Put enough solvent in dish to cover the screens on which the cartridges sit when in use.
4. Take the two small screws out that hold the white ceramic piece
5. Gently, pry the ceramic piece back and away , to reveal the underside (No need to pull away the glued points on the sides.)
6. Gently, move head up and down to slosh solvent around it the best as you can. Use a table spoon or syringe to pour solvent over all orifices in the print head, turning it upside down and then back a few times.
7. Use canned air with a plastic straw to blow into and through all orifices, alternately sloshing/swishing and pouring solvent over head (be careful not to touch any of the holes, screens, or sprayer heads with anything)
8. Empty dirty solvent from bowl and replace with paper towels and clean solvent. Soak for approx 10 minutes. Rinse again with clean solvent poured directly on all parts, letting solvent overrun and fall into dish or basin.
9. Gently shake the solvent off the head, take it outside and spray with compressed air into all orifices to clear out and help evaporate any remaining solvent. Let sit on a clean paper towel for approx 20 minutes. (There may be a little ink bleeding out of the head, but once it dries completely it does not present any problems.
10. Reinstall head, cartridges and it will print like a new printer.

SUGGESTION: For many years of problem free printing, keep a double set of ink cartridges, one set full at all times. Whenever a cartridge runs out of ink, replace it IMMEDIATELY, with a new one or a refilled one. This gives the print head no chance to dry out and create clogged heads. Routine maintenance of cleaning the heads every 24 months does wonders for keeping your printer in new condition.

Hope this helps. .

SOURCE: Epson Artisan 710 won't print black

Hi,


The nozzle may be blocked. So take out the colour cartridge and place its nozzle in a bit of water for about 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded paper. If the tissue is blotted with the three colour it means you have unblocked the nozzle. Try now to print after returning the colour cartridge. You may need to repeat to get good results..


Thank you!!

Epson Artisan 800 won't print with ink in the cartridges.


Have you run the head cleaner function under the maintenance section? You may have to run it several times. Then make sure that you print something that uses the colors every week.

Epson Artison 837 printing a blank piece of paper.


INK PROBLEM
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

I have an Epson Artisan 810 printer. All of a sudden, the printer will not print the black color. I just changed that cartridge and that didn't help either. Thanks!


Hi you should clean the print head and you need to take out the cartridge and pay close attention as you put it back into the printer because it may not be fitted in place properly.
