Epsons love to be used, hate to stand around.
They employ a ceramic printhead that will tolerate thousands of pages and do them all well but not using it for a while (sometimes only two weeks) can cause the printhead to dry out and never return to usefulness.
About the only thing you can do is to repeatedly run the printhead cleaning routine over and over again. If you are lucky, Epson allows you to which path (Black or color only) to attempt to clean.
Good luck; I have had to retire several Epsons after a fairly short life for this problem.
Sounds like you have a faulty printer. I use both Safari and Firefox without any problems [Epson CX9400Fax]. Call Epson and if your still under warranty they'll send you another one or pay for a repair. Do not pay the repair yourself as you can buy a printer with a 1 year warranty from Epson from their Clearance Center. BTW, I've been telling everyone to buy a CISS system as it saves tons of money on ink. http://www.inkproducts.com/ink-store/
Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.
