Best way I know of cleaning blocked heads is to run them through a cycle in an ultrasonic bath filled with warm water. Failing that then you will need to replace them.

The printer functions work but it will not supply ink so no images are printed. Full set of new epson cartridges installed. Please help. No good as it is.


Run a few "print-head-cleaning-cycles", because CLOGGED ink-jets means that NO ink is getting sprayed onto the paper.

Or, take it to a professional printer technician.

Color ink cartridge show a full ink supply, but it won't print color.


It's possible that the ink-jets that spray the colour ink onto the paper have become clogged. Run the printer software, and select a "print-head-cleaning-cycle", to try to unclog those jets.

BJC 85 not printing after head replacement


I have similar problem. Print head won't print, then I clean with alcohol, and get rid of old ink inside. But then head seems to just shut down. I have several print heads and printers that have plenty of ink, but head won't work. I refuse to think the print head will break so easily. I used my BJC 85 for YEARS with no problem whatsoever, and suddenly, since last winter, I have 4 printers that have stopped printing.
I usually end up just buying another used printer on ebay until that one stops printing.

How can you clean the printer but clicking on


Hi
If yourPSC 1210v printer has been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog and the standard cleaning is not enough to clear the clogged ink.

Assuming your HP 56 57 still has ink? Empty they are about 30g Each 1g over that is 1ml of unused ink.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon,Epson HP and removing those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints when dried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use a littleMagic Inkjet Flush to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.

Good Luck!

Cannon i 960 printer


Try first replacing the cartridge , possibly with an original one.
With new printer cartridge on do head clean a couple of times, to clean the print head.
If it still prints wrong color then the print head is faulty, one of the colors jets is clogged.
You can remove the printhead and leave it in cleaning solution or isopropyl alcohol overnight, probably you will need to replace the printhead.

Epson Stylus Printer CX4600


Hi,

I don't know if this will work on an Epson, but it does on Cannon. The pads on the cartridges or the ink jets in the printer head may be cloged with dry ink. Get some Q-tips and rubbing alcohol (water is a poor substitute). Take out the ink cartridges and touch the pad on the bottom with a Q-tip (one for each color). If there is color the cartridge pad is OK. Take a fresh Q-tip dip it in rubbing alcohol and GENTLY rub the little holes on the bottom of the plastic box the cartridges go in. Thse are the print head jets. You should see color. You may need to clean it a couple of times if the ink has dried down into the jets. It is OK to have the Q-tip pretty wet, but not dripping.

Hope this helps

Does the machine beep 5 times and flash both the power and error lamps? If so then the Waste Ink tank/pad is full and needs to be cleaned and the printer counter reset.
