Replacement of the print head I think would be the only way to fix problem. Not to expensive and depending on model may be done your self.

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

if the unit was stored with an old cartrige then over time it would have leaked ink there fore clogging up the injection points they will need to be gently using a ear but with hot water flushed until the points are all free from glug

My epson 1400 printer doesn't print


try printing a nozzle check to see if the nozzles are clogged by dried inks that why nothings printing. turn off the printer than press and hold power and paper button together for 3 sec. then release, it will print, if blank, all nozzles are clogged. do a head cleaning. hold the ink button for 3 seconds. wait until the power light stops flashing then print nozzle check again until all lines are complete,

When you change the print heads for a Hp L7580 what problems does it resolve?


Replacing the print heads fixes any poor print quality you are experiencing. Typically people replace print heads when a certain color (most likely black) is printing very faint or streaky. Over time the nozzles in the print head can get clogged with dried up ink. Enough clogged nozzles will inhibit ink from being deposited on the page in certain areas.

I changed the ink but nothing is printing on paper


The print head is contained in the machine and is likely clogged. If the machine is worth it to you, a willing technician at a refilling store should be able to clear the clogs. Otherwise there is not much hope.

Have a dell 720 printer. sounds like it is printing but there is nothing printed when it is done. ink cartridges should be fine. any suggestions


You have need to take it to have the heads cleaned by your local electronics store. The print heads may be clogged. I had a printer do this to me before and that was the problem

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!

I just bought new ink and nothing prints clearly


If it hasn't printed anything for a couple of years then the print heads will be severely clogged with dried ink. Epson recommends printing a page or two every month to keep the heads clear. You need to try cleaning the print heads, its unlikely that one or two head cleans will clear a badly 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.
If you need to know how to do head cleans & nozzle checks, the user guide can be downloaded from Epson here:

Hope this helps.
