Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in 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 thanreplace the print head.
How long have you been using your printer? and how many pages have you printed and the quality of it?
The reason am asking is that it could be that your printer has reached a certain limit of its parts based on the no. of pages it has printer. Please take note that each part of your printer, especially the mechanical parts has certain limits based on the no. of pages it has printed. Based on my experience with epson printers is that, first to reach its limit is the porous pad, if it reach it limits it will disable your printer from printing further to protect it from further damage. Everytime you print some ink goes to waste and goes to the porous pad which means it could get full. Please bring you printer to an authorized epson service center to have the pad remove or whatever parts the limits reach first. After parts replacement the technician will use a software tool to reset the counter and voila :) Your printer should be working fine until it reach another limit. Note: All printer brands uses counter to protect their unit.
this is usually caused by clogged print heads, unfortunately epson is still one of few brands that still manufactures most of their printers with the heads built into the machine and thus upon print head clogging the printer must be taken in to be serviced or buy a new printer that does not have the print heads built in but rather built into the ink cartridges. hope this helps.
epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)
Could be the jts are clogged in which you will need to do deep cleaning routine
You will need to down load the ssc untiliy for for this - www.ssc.lg.com for this.
