Epson Stylus NX625 clogged print heads

Where are the print heads? A Staple's employee told me to dab some alcohol on the print heads but I am clueless as to where they are.

    I have done the head cleaning (so much so that I ran out of ink) and the nozzle check. I have all new ink cartridges in place and when I print I get mostly blank pages (a few marks here and there).

SOURCE: Epson Stylus R230 Light Magenta Not working

Print first a nozzle check pattern, self test which they say. Check your manual for your printer, it should be accessible from that if you dont have any manual, go to the epson website and download a manual. Usually the self test would go like this.

While the printer is turned off, you press and hold down the paper feed button, continue holding it down while turning on the printer. It will print the nozzle check pattern standalone. If you see all the colors then the issue your having is a color management issue, if you do not see the cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light magenta and light cyan from that test; then you will need to do 3 consecutive times of Head Cleaning from the maintenance program in your computer. If you have a windows xp it goes like this.

Click on start go to control panel - printers and faxes -
you right click on your printer icon and select printing prefrences. From there, go to maintenance tab and click head cleaning, go through that cycle 3 consecutive times and see if it improved. Good luck....

SOURCE: Epson CX4800 cannot clean the print heads

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

SOURCE: The black ink will not print on my Epson Stylus

I have an Epson sx600fw which has had a problem printing with black ink. I spent alot of money trying genuine and cheap inks as official advice is to replace with a genuine epson cartridge and clean up to 6 times before seeking further help. Tried this to no avail. By accident I found that if you set the paper type to glossy or photo then miraculously the black will work but in this setting it is slow. Epson replace the printer under warranty but I have just received a new one and it has exactly the same problem. I am slightly reluctant to buy another set of genuine inks to waste through 6 cleaning cycles as they are over £35 so am not sure what to do but I guess I will approach Epson again.

SOURCE: print head clogged

Routine maintenance and keeping full ink tanks will prevent this problem, however if you have the problem you can resolve it by doing the following:
1. Clean your print head using denatured alcohol solvent which can be purchased from most hardware stores. If unavailable, use 91% Alcohol (isopropyl alcohol (first aid antiseptic) which is available for less than a dollar at most Walmart pharmacy departments.

*Warning: You may want to use a pair of latex exam gloves as this is a messy process and can stain your fingers.
Time necessary 45-50 minutes
Supplies needed:
Isopropyl Alcohol or denatured alcohol
paper towels
latex gloves
sink, bowls and or basin
can of compressed air
very small screw driver
tablespoon or baby bulb type syringe
warm water

PROCEDURE:
1. Lift print head from printer. It pulls out easily because it is held in with the same down lever that holds the cartridge in place.
2. Put two layers of paper towels in the bottom of a dish to protect sensitive sprayer heads.
3.Put enough solvent in dish to cover the screens on which the cartridges sit when in use.
4. Take the two small screws out that hold the white ceramic piece
5. Gently, pry the ceramic piece back and away , to reveal the underside (No need to pull away the glued points on the sides.)
6. Gently, move head up and down to slosh solvent around it the best as you can. Use a table spoon or syringe to pour solvent over all orifices in the print head, turning it upside down and then back a few times.
7. Use canned air with a plastic straw to blow into and through all orifices, alternately sloshing/swishing and pouring solvent over head (be careful not to touch any of the holes, screens, or sprayer heads with anything)
8. Empty dirty solvent from bowl and replace with paper towels and clean solvent. Soak for approx 10 minutes. Rinse again with clean solvent poured directly on all parts, letting solvent overrun and fall into dish or basin.
9. Gently shake the solvent off the head, take it outside and spray with compressed air into all orifices to clear out and help evaporate any remaining solvent. Let sit on a clean paper towel for approx 20 minutes. (There may be a little ink bleeding out of the head, but once it dries completely it does not present any problems.
10. Reinstall head, cartridges and it will print like a new printer.

SUGGESTION: For many years of problem free printing, keep a double set of ink cartridges, one set full at all times. Whenever a cartridge runs out of ink, replace it IMMEDIATELY, with a new one or a refilled one. This gives the print head no chance to dry out and create clogged heads. Routine maintenance of cleaning the heads every 24 months does wonders for keeping your printer in new condition.

Hope this helps. .

Some colors do not print and cleaning has not helped.


The Maint tools for cleaning print head can only deal with minor blockages & use a lot of ink. Epson Express Centres are equipped with specialist software that will pump at a higher pressure. But first the ink block has to be softened. Soak the print head in Isopropyl Alcohol or similar. I use a syringe fitted with a small bore plastic tube that I push onto the nozzle that pierces the ink cartridge. A small squeeze of the syringe will provide enough pressure to soak the jet. Keep syringe attached for a few hours then try the cleaning test again a few times

You will want to press the button that you use to change the ink cartridge (the 3rd button). Once the carriage is in the "cartridge change position" you can unplug the printer. Then you are ready to flush out the heads. Click here for cleaning instructions http://www.wesesweb.web1000.com/printhead.html

The instructions are fairly easy to follow. If you need the head cleaning solution click here .http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kea0.html

Repairs: All Epson Stylus printers (except for the C64-C86, CX4600-CX6400 series) which don't print, or print choppy in black or color. For the other printers, as well as Canon BJCs, use the other repair kit.

Description:
  • This is the same chemical used by Epson in their service department
  • Easy to use, no disassembly required
  • Gently dissolves even the most stubborn clogs and restores output to dried out print nozzles and clogged printheads

Note: This is not alcohol or Windex; it is an ink-specific solvent that has proven to be safe and effective for use on Epson printheads. Do not use alcohol or Windex, they will very likely ruin your printer.

I have an Epson CX4800 that just stopped printing. I followed the Troubleshooting steps on the Epson site (including new ink cartridges) but nothing has helped. the print job does reach the printer - but...


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

Put in new ink cartrages but printer still won't print.


Same problem- & I fixed it!

My printer had all new cartridges and acted like it was printing, but only blank pages came out. Since I had followed all recommended trouble shooting steps, the Epson help center told me I had to take it to a repair center, and most likely replace it, saying that it was probably the actual printing head that was clogged and since it was a non-removable part, couldn't be replaced. Instead, I did this- try it!

-Remove all ink cartridges.
-Dip a cotton ball or q-tip in rubbing alcohol, and drop a couple drops on each ink head (the points sticking up that the ink cartridges stick onto.)
-Dab it dry with another q-tip, then repeat.
-Reinstall cartridges, and voila, it might work!
Mine worked PERFECTLY after this 5 minute procedure, no skips, no blots, nothing. And no repair center, and no new printer! Good luck!
