Epson r2400 leaking ink when printing

Hi I have an epson r2400 which if I'm completely honest I don't use that often and can go a few months between usages. I recently tried to use it to print borderless A4 prints, but it was dropping big ink smears about a inch long onto the paper everytime I printed. I wasted about 10 sheets trying different methods, running the cleaning cycle etc etc. I also opened up the printer and cleaned the ink pads at both ends, the 'wiper' and under the print head with cleaning fluid. I also removed the cartridges before cleaning all the cartridge nozzles and putting cleaning fluid through the head itself. Tried to print again, this time the quality was worse (now have vertical lines and it's streaky) and the ink splodges are still there - now worse. before it looked like the cyan was leaking - now it looks like magenta is too. Anyone have any ideas what it could be? I recently tried using a different brand of inks (dye not pigment) could this be causing the issue? Or is my print head dead? :( Any help appreciated!

SOURCE: Not printing magenta ink and tried cleaning heads already

Hi, one or two head cleans won't clear a clogged nozzle. Try doing 4 or 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:

Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Note that head cleaning uses between 5 and ten percent of your ink cart's, if any are low on ink have some new ones ready. Hope this helps.

How to change waste pads on Epson R2400?


The R2400 is quite an expensive printer and changing the pads would likely knock the printhead out of gross alignment so if you really must change the pads then I'd recommend getting it done at a service center (much as it pains me to suggest it).

The only time it's really essential to get the pads changed though is if you do a lot of borderless printing as this dumps ink straight to the pads and bypasses the popular external waste ink tank modification.

My recommendation would be to consider getting the printer serviced this once and then immediately install an external waste ink system to your printer and use the SSC or A10-IPR utility from Epson to reset the waste ink counter from there on in.

All the info you need is available via this link

Hope that helps, even if it is a little late..

Epson stylus k3 r2400


Hi Lisa
The R2400 has the choice of two black inks, MK and PK. One is for Matt printing, the other (called photo black) is for gloss.
If the printer has the matt cartridge fitted it only allows suitable options, including paper choice, to be selected. If you change the black cartridge from the MK to the PK one, you should then have the choice of gloss paper.
