Question about Epson Stylus RX650 All-In-One Printer
Would like to know how to clean the print head on a Epson RX650 by removing the the print head
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.

Head cleaning is mechanical process, printing is electrical process. If nothing at all ink out/spray from head in printing process, problem with electricity. Damage board or short circuit at head cable. Check board first, may be some component "burn". It is suggested to contacted Epson customer support before further damage occurs.
