Question about Epson PictureMate (C11C556001) InkJet Photo Printer
Pages printed off (minus magenta) so I did several "cleanings" each showed fewer and fewer lines. then I replaced the cartridge and now they come through totally blank even though it sounds like it is printing very frustrated
There are two main areas of concern: A waste sponge located just under the printhead, and which helps to park the printhead when you turn the power off, and the actual printhead itself. There are also two ribbon connectors that attach to the printhead assembly--and if one of them is not fully plugged in the exact symptoms you describe will occure.
To reach the waste sponge require the dis assembly of the upper half of the printer. I can knock it out is about 5 minutes now! I have used about 50 Q tips to soak up the ink, and manually clan the long rectangular sponge as well.
It you want I can send you pictures of my printer all torn down.
