Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
I have followed Epson instructions by doing nozzle check followed by print head cleaning. I have repeated this 4 times and still no improvement.
Sometimes you are just printing with the wrong paper setting. Instead of just clicking on the small printer picture icon in your toolbar to print, go to "FILE" then scroll down to "print", that will bring up the grey printer text box in the middle of your screen. In the "advanced" settings you will find that you can input many, many, different types of printer paper types to coordinate with the actual paper you are using. The printer will then adapt its feeder to accommodate the specific paper.
So, lets say you aren't using Epson photo paper, but you are using HP photo paper, you need to specify that and then the print might produce a better quality image.

OK Guest - I'm sorry you aren't prepared to respond, so here's the best I can do without it.
Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select head clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print.
If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have good ink cartridges properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean/nozzle check again. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

Hi it's Gill again. I've been looking around more on the net and I think the problem is our printers need new printheads which I'm told are spare parts easy to change. Hope this helps. Gill
