Epson Nozzle check

When I print a nozzle check on my epson only the bottom half of the pattern is printed. Does this mean the print head is clogged?

    Morning--Tried the deep cleaning with no result. Any idea how to get the print head out?

  • sandysun Jan 10, 2009

    You must mean below the ink cartridges?

    There are 2 screws below the ink cartridges(where the ink goes into the print head). I removed them and the head did not come out. There must be something else to do?

  • sandysun Jan 14, 2009

    I guess I am a little confused. I removed the print cartridges and where the ink goes into the printer there is 2 screws. If I removed these screws nothing moves. Am I in the right place?

I have been using an epson stylus color 880 for years. One day it would not print. Replaced the cartridges and still will not print. It goes through the printing procedures but nothing shows up on...


The print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the EPSON printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Perform up to 3 cycles if necessary. If the nozzle check is not printing completely, and if the head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, try replacing the ink cartridge. Any ink cartridge installed into the printer must have a blue label on top of it. If the blue label has been removed from the ink cartridge, do not install the cartridge. Using an ink cartridge, which does not have the blue label on it, may damage the printer. Caution: If you have already installed a cartridge which is missing the blue label, or if a previously installed ink cartridge was missing its blue label at the time it was installed, and now head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, your printer may require service and you should contact the EPSON Connection for further assistance.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe

PLSE HELP IM TRYING TO PRINT BUT NOTHINGS HAPPENING, IT IS ALL SET UP


test the printer first, so that we can isolate the issue. print a nozzle check to eliminate the possibility that the nozzles are clogged by dried inks. if nozzle check prints blank page or it printedr but w/ gaps or breaks, do head cleaning

Check the Print Head Nozzles: 1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX4400 Series. 3. Hold down the cx4400_ug.1.79.1.jpg Stop button as you press the cx4400_ug.1.79.2.jpg On button to turn the Epson Stylus CX4400 Series back on. Hold down both buttons until the cx4400_ug.1.79.3.jpg On light begins to flash, then release the buttons. cx4400_ug.1.79.4.jpg 4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines. cx4400_ug.1.79.5.jpg 5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean and you can continue printing. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head. Clean the Print Head Nozzles: 1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Hold down the cx4400_ug.1.80.1.jpg Stop button for at least 4 seconds to start the cleaning cycle, which lasts around 1 minute. cx4400_ug.1.80.2.jpg The cx4400_ug.1.80.3.jpg On light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on green when the cycle is finished. Caution:
Never turn off the Epson Stylus CX4400 Series during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it. 3. Run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean. You may need to clean the print head up to 2 times. You can also turn the Epson Stylus CX4400 Series off and wait at least 6 hours. Then try printing again.

Printer is only printing one color


possible printhead issue. Cartridges maybe outdated too. If you haven't used the printer in a while, the inks on the nozzles will dry out, thus clogging the printhead nozzles. If your cartridges are installed over 6 months now, it may be outdated. Replace cartridges if they are already outdated.
Do a printer check by printing a nozzle check pattern from the printer. To print a nozzle check pattern, turn the printer off. load 10 sheets of regular paper into your printer. hold down the paper button while you turn the printer on, keep on holding down the paper button. let go of the paper button when the powerlight is already blinking. If there are gaps or missing colors on the nozzle check pattern, please do 3 head cleanings. compare the nozzle check pattern over the last printout. If you see improvement on the pattern, continue cleaning the printhead till you get a perfect nozzle check pattern.
If there are no improvements, your printer may need service.
If your printer is not under warranty anymore, log on to support.epson.com. Click on help me find a service center to the bottom right of the page to find epson certified servicers near to your area.
The printer has a one year warranty from the date of purchase. Pls call epson if your unit is still under warranty.

Epson RX620 yellow lines/blocks on page


Try to print the nozzle check, and see what your out put is like.
If it is not giving you a regular pattern, then have the nozzle
replaced. Most times when the nozzle is clogged with ink, you
get such out-puts. So follow this steps.
How to print the nozzle check:

1. Press the Setup button.

2. Use the arrow buttons to select Nozzle Check, then press the OK button.

3. Confirm the message on the display, then press the OK button to print the Nozzle Check.
Shown below are some examples of what the nozzle check may look like.

Epson Stylus Pro 4800 InkJet (Color printing problems)


If you do a nozzle check...do a cleaning...then do another nozzle check, you can "read" the patterns to see exactly what the problem may be. If the first nozzle check is missing half, then you do the cleaning, and the second is missing half also, check the pattern of the box to see if the missing nozzles are jumping around. If the pattern is exactly the same, you have clogs. If the pattern jumps around, you are having ink starvation issues, and may need dampers.
