Question about Epson Stylus C66 Inkjet Printer
Have'nt used this printer for over a year. Cartridges show full but head and nozzle cleaning have not helped. Paper just continues to come thru blank. Anyone with any other ideas. Thanks DAK
If your cartridges have been sitting in the printer for a year, it seems likely they have dried out. Replace them with new cartridges, but make sure you use the proper cartridge replacement procedure so that a ink charging cycle takes place. Then do a nozzle check. Is there any sign of ink on the paper?. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print.
If you have done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have good ink cartridges properly installed, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may
now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean/nozzle check again. Try this process twice if necessary. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.
