Question about Epson Stylus Photo R220 InkJet Printer
Epson R220, think nozzle heads are clogged (not on ink cartridges). ACTIONS TAKEN:
1. replaced magenta & light magenta ink cartridges several times & no ink flow from them. All other colors work though.
2. I have cleaned the heads many many times & still no magenta colors. Also, if i print anything, magenta colors drip onto the paper creating big spots & trail smears.
3. Used distilled water on the ink absorber pads to try & loosen dried ink (followed directions 2 the T) still did not work.
I think the nozzle head is clogged, can anybody tell me how to fix this problem? i just ordered a thing called magic inkjet flush but that won't be here until 2 weeks or so. I need to print things now, can somebody help? Thank you, Schroeder

No it,s not a glitch, the printer is informing you that these are also out of ink.
Go To START/PRINTERS/Right Click On EpsonR220/Printer Preferences. Tick The Box Draft Or Text.
Should Now Print In Monochrome ( Black and white )
Yoou probably have it set to photo or other colour option.

Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed
at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just
throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA
ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson.
If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to
a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!
The C82 in addition to clogging also has a problem where the waste ink hose which is supposed to remove excess ink (so the printer dosent get clogged) gets disconnected and so the printer clogs even more. The C84 had this glitch fixed but alot of good that did!
Thanks for reading!

SOURCE: Printer will not print
For all four cartridges to stop delivering ink simultaneously would seem to indicate that something significant has happened (e.g. main board problem). However, it is a long time since you posted this problem with no help forthcoming. If you still have the problem will you post a new comment here, otherwise let's call it solved!
