How to clean the heads

I have been doing some research on clean my epson stylus cx4800 clogged heads. Willing to try anything. Followed all the manual's ideas without any luck. Any suggestions on how to flush it out. One solution I heard was using vinigar. Not sure how to do this. Please help, have x-mas picture to print and put into cards. Thank you!

Re: How to clean the heads

No don't soak with vinegar. You need to soak print heads
and go through series of solutions. Join the Yahoo Epson_printers group and there are many ways to go about
clearing your clogged printheads.

Epson Stylus CX4800 prints blurred pictures

ok..first you will need to print the nozzle check and see if all the color are printed out fine.. this feature is under the printer properties , under the utility tab.... assuming all your colors nozzle are printed fine..then the next thing for you to do is do the Print Head Alignment.. it's under the same place where you print the nozzle check.. when you press the Print Head Alignment, it will print a page out with many lines.. choose the one with the best alignment.. once u done that..try printing the image again..
oh..if your nozzle check print out is not good.. then you will need to perform head cleaning to clear the clogged head..

Epson CX4800 cannot clean the print heads

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

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 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
