Question about Epson Stylus Pro 4000 InkJet Printer

Open Question

The code Service REQ#0001001B Tells me headdriver temperature error ... How do I fix that. Performing a cleaning cycle is not the answer when you cant boot up the printer. Any help would be appreciat

I have taken out all the cartridges and cleaned the imput nozzles. I undid the screw and have cleaned the drain to the ink tank.(that was pretty messy) I soaked the sponge station with cleaner. The head is now sitting on a pad soaked in cleaner which I will leave overnight. But if that doesn't work what say you? The printer has performed wonderfully for years. Apart from a few heavy cleaning cycles and I did do a major head clean about 6 months ago it has had no problems.

SOURCE: epson 440 won't print

The ink dried up in the print head. A printer should be used at least every two weeks to keep from drying up the ink. You may have to replace the print head or have it serviced.
This is not much help. Bud

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

What is the cause of new cartridges running out of ink while checking trying to align print head?


You must replace the print head., as long as printer detecting that nozzles are not firing properly., it keep on cleaning the head, result it will drains the inks from the ink tanks...once you replaced both print head & tanks, take print outs at least twice in a week., perform nozzle cleaning once in a month to avoid this type of nonsense..

How use epson l800 for sublimation ink


Hi.

There are things that you need to understand when using third party inks on CISS Ready Printers. Epson L800 is built to use inks manufactured by Epson and therefore using other inks than specified will automatically void the manufacturer's warranty on the device.

Sublimation Inks are heat sensitive inks but it can be used to most of the Epson Printers on the market. If your L800 is already running using Dye Inks now, you may need to "flush" the Tanks, Tubes and Print Nozzles to avoid ink clogging. Mixing different types of ink is the most common mistake resulting to printhead clogging and by not flushing, you may as well encounter this. If you can buy a new CISS Tanks and cartridges fitted to L800, you may also want to do so to make flushing easier. You only need to flush the nozzles if you replace the CISS Kit.

Flush using a Syringe with the tube on the part where the needle is supposed to be placed. To flush the nozzle, press the "ink" button on the printer. As the cartridges move to the center, pull the power plug to shut down the device. Remove all the cartridges to expose the nozzles. Move the cartridge holder a to the right enough not to lock it in its terminal. Put a paper towel in the base of the printer and move back the cartridge holder placing it on top of the paper towel.

Fill your syringe with cleaning solution and securely attach the other end of the tube to the nozzle. MAKE SURE YOU DO NOT SPILL cleaning solution to any circuitry in the cartridge holder. Squeeze the syringe slowly to flush out the remaining inks on the printhead. 3 to 5 ml would do the flushing. Repeat the flushing to all of the nozzles. Again, be careful with the circuits.

After flushing, remove the paper towel and clean up the base of the printer.

Load your new (or flushed) CISS Kit into position.

After installation, it is necessary to conduct initial setup to rerun the ink from Tanks to tubes to cartridges and to printhead. After initial setup, a nozzle check and cleaning would also refine the quality of the print.

If you ever encounter ink-clogging on your nozzles again, the flushing will also help you do the trick unless your printhead already ran out.

I hope this helps.

Chow!

No ink on printed pages


Try to pull out the ink cartridges. Then after 1 minute put the cartridges on. Then it will initiate head cleaning. Just perform the head cleaning to clean clogged nozzles. Then try to print a test page.

Problem with ink continuity. Ink at head spray out, but ink at tank not flow to head. Print block color for each color. Is it perfect? Do nozzle check, head cleaning, wait for 30 minutes. Check again.

Canon MP390 Printing no magenta & now nothing!


Hey Everyone!

I have an MP390 that had a similar problem over a year ago. There is a very simple fix that worked for me, and I'm pretty sure that it will work for you too. :^)

Outline:
Open the printer as though you were going to replace the ink tanks. Once opened, with the print head centered, open the latch and remove all of the ink tanks. Gently remove the print head (it should come right out, even easier than the ink cartridges). Take a paper towel, wet it with warm water, and then gently clean the bottom part of the print head. The bottom part is the part that will have an orange ribbon running to four metal openings that look like tiny nozzles. After wiping away all of the built-up gunk (on mine there was a thick sludge), grab a new and wet paper towel, and lightly press it against the nozzles. This should start sucking ink through the print head, and you will begin to see four distinct colors (CMYK) bleeding into the towel. Once done, lightly dry the print head off (make sure that there are no loose water droplets) and then reassemble everything. Print a test page and everything should work. If it doesn't change the ink tanks just to be sure.

Fortunately for you, Canon has made the print head on the MP390 very easy to service/remove, so cleaning is a snap.

Steps:
  1. Turn Printer On
  2. Open Printer As If To Change Ink Tanks
  3. Release Ink Tank Latch
  4. Remove Ink Tanks
  5. Remove Print Head (Black Plastic Assembly In Which Ink Tanks Rest)
  6. Use Wet Paper Towel (With Warm Water) To Clean Tank/Nozzle
  7. Dry Excess Water
  8. Reassemble
  9. Close Printer
  10. Print Test Page



Good luck!!!
