Question about Epson Stylus Pro 4000-PS InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The magenta ink head is clogged and no matter what I do I can't get it unclogged. Since I can't get it to work I haven't used the printer in weeks and now am worried all the heads will clog. What should I do if I am not using the printer for an extended period of time? Remove all cartridges? And, then what? Thanks very much, Tess

Hi

try using a damp lint free cloth and try cleaing the cartridge ****.
also if you go in to the printers and faxes and rt click the printer icon and goto properties you will find clean ink cartridge under maintenance.
try cleaning the ink cartridge using that
and the cartridge should work absolutely fine.

My canon pixma ip4000 has stopped printing. It is going through the motions but the paper is coming out blank with nothing on it.


Hi
If you have lots of flashing error lights or electrical problems then it is likely to be electrical.

However, if like most... and your Canon PIXMA iP4000 InkJet Photo Printer has just been left unused for some time? You probably have an ink clog on the cyan and magenta.
Or possibly a faulty cartridge.

Provided it worked OK before a period of non-use? Then you just need to use a PRINT HEAD CLEANING KIT to unclog the tiny jets.
Magic Inkjet Flush usually works a treat on those!

Magic is ideal for unclogging the tiny jets on any Canon, Epson HP andremoving those horrible white lines which usually appear in prints whendried ink clogs several jets...

So if yours appears to be a clog? all you should need to do is to use the Magic Inkjet Flush kit to soak the print head and you should be printing again like new.

I put a new color cart in and now my pictures have a green hue to them


Hi
Sounds like too much cyan.
Remove ink and place onto a paper towel.
If it appears too much cyan *blue then let it stand for 2 mins. You can do the same if mixed.

Once normal colours appear try again.

Prints like it is running out of ink, but it is a new cartridge. Some sentences are printing, others are blank, or partially printing.Followed instructions to align and clean nozzles. Doesn't help.

After replacing cartridge in dell 810 the colours printing wrong


Hi

If you haven´t used your inkjet printer for a while it may just be dry ink clogging some of the nozzles in the print head.


To check if yours is clogged...


Remove the ink cartridges
Holding the cartridge upright and press down gently onto a paper towel.

The colour cartridge
you should see YELLOW, MAGENTA (red) and CYAN (blue)

But if any colours are missing? The inks have probably just clogged up? and you will need to buy a new one or if you know you still have ink then you can easily unclog it with a
Magic Inkjet Flush Kit (Which you can find on Ebay)

MIXED COLOURS
If you have others colours coming out then the colours have mixed...
Sometimes caused when people put tape onto the inks to keep them moist but instead the colours mix through capilary action.


If so... leave print head sitting on a paper towel for a few mins until the correct colours appear.



Read more about ink clogs here:
How to Clean, Fix, Repair, Unclog, Dry, Clogged Print Heads on CANON, EPSON, HP, Lexmark, Dell, Olivetti etc…

To prevent an ink clog it is best if you print something regularly about every 10 days to keep the tiny print head nozzles / jets open. Otherwise the ink in the print head will thicken. Then it´s like trying to pass a camel through the eye of a needle.

So to preven inkjet ink from clogging print something every 10 days if you dont have anything to print, use something like these test prints

Epson C82 & C84 Printers will not laydown any ink!


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!

http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kits/Epson/K89

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!
