Wow 15 years! You've gotten your money's worth. Unless it's a specific type of printer i.e blueprints schematic etc. Splurge and replace it. It's a shame in my opinion that the technology has gotten so inexpensive and we have become so throw away. The ink is what you pay for now. You can almost buy a new printer with ink when you're done. Sorry to carry on, just blowing off steam.

I have replaced the cartridge cleaned the nozzle heads but my photos are a funny fuzzy colour. It is about 18mts old and hasn't been used much Thanks


It's a EPSON printer, you have to use it at least twice a month, otherwise the ink on the print heads will dry and clog them. If the printer cleaning process doesn't solve the issue, you'll have to take it to the service center to get the print heads replaced.

Continual poor quality prints. I have to clean the heads daily


The reservoir might be really dirty from the ink. You can try cleaning it with a Q-TIP. It could get messy. Turn the printer off first.

There are stripes through the whole page of what I'm printing


Hi, its the print heads are clogged up, couple of things to try, head cleaning would be the first option, right click on your printer status program ie on the bottom right of the screen the small icon, and you should find maintenance or head cleaning, try doing this a few times, print something out see if any change, if still no success, change the ink cartridge, if still no success last try would be http://www.supermediastore.com/cleaning-cartridge.html its a head cleaning cartridge to try and clean the blocked print head, if none of the above work you would be better replacing the printer as epson charges £75 + vat to repair any printer, the last time i tried to buy print heads at trade they were about £48+vat & delivery and is really a nightmare to fit with epson,most new epson printers seem to only last about 15 months on average but its the amount of money you can save through using compatible ink, as we only sell epson printers ourselfs and this happens with 99% of returned printers..

Happy New Year
