Question about Epson Stylus C86 InkJet Printer
Is there a way to remove the print head for cleaning? This printer had been sitting for quite sometime; thusly it had probably dried quite a bit...
Can you let me know what you have tried. Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one. Now run a nozzle check using the status monitor (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 these actions produce no positive results, or you have any queries about my advice, please report back with a new comment.
