You can run your printer head cleaning program by going to printers, right click on your printer, select properties, and look for printing pref then look for any maintenance selection. If that doesn't help printers are very inexpensive these days so I'd go get a new one.
Hope this helps,
Henry

After cleaning printhead printer says printhead needs cleaning


If that's the case, the printhead will need to be replaced. If your printer is still under warranty, you can contact our technical support team to have the printhead replaced. If not, you can purchase a printhead online at http://bit.ly/IZYhWo.

Also, make sure that you're using genuine Lexmark cartridges. Refilled/remanufactured cartridges might damage your printhead.

Printer head of fx 2175 one side jam making noice


The printer may need a service.

Dirt and grime on the print bar causes the head carriage to jam

It may also be caused by:
Damaged Gears
Faulty Form Starter Sensor
Snagged Ribbon

But i would start by just cleaning the bar thoroughly

Do note that cleaning the bar is just a temporary solution
The machine needs to be stripped and the bushes and all parts needs to be cleaned.

Do not attempt this if you dont have experience in this

COLOR IS NOT PRINTING VERY GOOD


There are many reasons for this problem.but some very common possibilities are as follows:--- 1) The color cartridge in the printer is near to empty.in this case replace the cartridge and check out. 2) The other reason is that color cartridge is not empty but the color in it is got dried up .In this case also the cartridge needs to be replaced. 3) Many times this problem occurs after the cartridge is refilled.or you are using re-cycled cartridges instead of original cartridges. BUT if you are using original Epson cartridge,the cartridge is not empty and the ink is is not dried up.Still you have this problem then,its the problem of the print head of the cartridge.In the printer where you insert the cartridge below that there is a print-head.In the print-head there are many tiny holes.From this holes the ink passes for printing on paper.But if this holes are blocked then ink will not pass even from the new cartridge.In this case the print head needs cleaning.From the PC in printer properties there is a option called"CLEAN THE PRINT CARTRIDGES" but this is automatic cleaning.But if the ink is jammed very hard then this automatic cleaning will not help.The print head will require manual cleaning.And for that the printer needs to be opened and print head needs to be removed.If the printer is under warranty then its advisable to get the print head cleaned by Epson service center but if its out of warranty then you get it done by local printer repair tech.But if the ink is stuck up very hard then the print head needs to be replaced. Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Print head needs a good cleaning,deep cleaning just won't do it. jrc


You do not have 2 do the cleaning of printhead often ..Printer has a self maintenance process which automatically clean the printhead also.Yeah,u do not have to take the printhead out and clean it with a cloth or alcohol as it can damage the printhead as well as printer.

I have vertical marks printing on my document


This failure is caused by the drum in the printer. I believe it needs to be replaced. Perhaps some cleaning will fix the issue. If after cleaning the lines still there, that means the drum is scratched and needs replacement.

Check the user manual for how long the drum should last or when it should be replaced.

Clean prinnter massage


The Zebra printer displays the Clean Printer message when the printer prints a 1000 cards.

This is to maintain printer and ensure good print quality.

The way to clear the message is to get cleaning cards and run a cleaning routine.

The CD that comes with the printer will run a video showing how to run the cleaning cards through the printer. Printer needs 2 unique cleaning cards (1 short & 1 Long)
