How do i need to purge the ink lines on an epson 3880


Purging Procedure - If you have just installed a new archival or Quadtone cartridge you must purge the Epson print head of all of the old, non-archival, ink before you can begin to print with the full archival effect. The print heads in the Epson 200/400/440/500/600/640/740/800/850/860/900/1160/1520/Photo/Photo 700/Photo EX/Photo 750/Photo 1200 printers hold about 3 to 5 pages worth of ink. Always run a Nozzle check before printing. Even if you get a perfect nozzle check on your first try after putting in a new cartridge, run at least one or two head cleaning cycles. This will prevent any excess ink from over filling the print head. After the cleaning cycles, use the purging test patterns below to purge your system of the old ink. After printing about 5 (8.5x11) pages of this pattern, 98% of the old ink will be gone. The rest will come out slowly and may take as many as 20 or more pages, but at the 98% point you will see good results. If you have an Epson 3000, 5000 or 9000. See below

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!

I replaced all of the cartridges with Epson, but the black won't print. After some nozzle checks, black is getting low and STILL no black printing occurring... what going on? Now the other colors are...


Nozzle cleaning uses a lot of ink, that's probably why the other ink cartridges are registering low on ink. Are you using refilled cartridges or brand new? Also, have you had the cartridges for awhile? I've found that the nozzles can become clogged either from not using the printer for awhile or because it's a recycled cartridge that didn't have the nozzles cleaned before it was refilled. When that happens, unfortunately, sometimes it takes a lot of cleaning cycles before the printing comes back. Let me know more about the cartridges you have.

Changed from cartridges to cont. ink system. Now


Hi Dave,

Chances are the problem is that you haven't removed the travel plugs that allow air into the reservoir part of your CIS. This is vital because the air needs to replace ink used up in printing and if it can't do this the air creates something of a vacuum that holds back the ink.

Also worth checking that you haven't got any crimped (folded) tubing or clamps that are still engaged that shouldn't be.

Hope that helps..

Epson Stylus C86 - prints faint magenta even though ink levels are in a normal printing range - does not print anything or a barely seen magenta line during nozzle check and heading cleaning


You probably have a slowly worsening clog building up in the Magenta nozzles. It's also possible that your ink is reaching its end of life which, given the age of the C86 is entirely possible, especially if you are refilling or using a CIS sytem with your printer.

If it's a clog issue you can try soaking the parking pad with a mildly ammoniated cleaning solution (original Ammonia windex is good for this) or even distilled water. Leaving this with the printhead parked above it allows the solution to wick up into the nozzles and break down any clogs in the printhead.

If the problem is ink age though you will probably want to carry out the solution above AND replace your ink with a fresh solution. A CIS will need a thorough flush to remove any algae and cloggation residues before you use it again or you will just reintroduce the problem.

Hope that helps.

Epsom cx3200 off brand ink refill


Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged. You may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines.

When you don't turn on your EPSON CX3200 for a long time, the print quality can decline. It's a good idea to turn on your EPSON CX3200 at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

1. Make sure the EPSON CX3200 is turned on but not printing, and the Error light is off.
If the Error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge.
2. Press the left Menu button on the control panel several times until you see Cleaning and then press the Copy button.
Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the EPSON CX3200 makes some noise and the Operate light flashes. Never turn off the EPSON CX3200 while the Operate light is flashing, unless the EPSON CX3200 hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes. setViewedFAQCookie(14082, 31605);

Have an eson stylus cx9400F


Every time you do a nozzle clean routine in an inkjet printer, like the Epson CX9400Fax, ink is wasted. When it is $20.00 for a quarter ounce, that is wasteful to your wallet too. The nozzle head cleaning routine flushes your ink from the cartridge through a tube to the nozzle, where it mostens the nearly microscopic holes and flushes hardened ink residue away.

The wasted ink from machines often goes through a rubber gasket or wiper, and into a large, thick felt pad, maybe an inch thick, hidden deep inside, near the bottom of the printer, where it eventually soaks in and dries. In some machines, this happens every time you start the printer, so it makes sense to keep it plugged in. Each cartridge uses some ink, even if you only use it for black and white, so you pay a lot for something you don't even use.

Unfortunately, HP and Epson abuse the trust that users put in them. Word is that HP makes more money on cartridges than it does in printers and plotters. This leads to poor printer design that makes it impossible to refill cartridges, get 3rd party cartridges, or use a printer for black and white and not waste color ink.

Printing


I would venture a guess that probably you both had the cartridge refilled. That is probably why there is air inside the cartridge. In effect a tiny air bubble acts like an air dam. You can try doing a lot of nozzle cleaning. There is a chance it flush out the air. Since is doing partial printing, chances are the bubble is not inside the printhead. So hopefully the flushing should solve both your problems. If it doesn't I'll refer you to a site where you can see the video of how to flush out the air. Also make sure you turn off your printer on the printer's power switch and not the AVR or power strip. This is sometime a cause for the blockage and sometimes it is also causes ink to dry up on the print head causing another kind of blockage.

Epson cx6400 ink problem


The ink nozzle may be clogged. You may be using refill ink not from the original epson ink. Try cleaning the nozzle assembly or the printer may not be usable.
