SOURCE: Epson Stylus Photo R800 Print Head Nozzles ??

Don't use nozzles clean function, besides ink consuming it can cause damages that cannot be fixed: black lines on the back side of the page that will be permanent. Instead put two photo paper together (2x260 gr) and push the two papers together into the printer while printing a motive including many colors. Do so a couple of times and the clogg usually disappears. Good luck! jonk

Epson printer is only printing in Black and Yellow, but not in other colours which it should do, What is the problem?


Go to printer properties and perform Head Cleaning and then print the nozzle check to check if all the colors are printed out, if after a few clean and the results are still the same, most probably your printer head is faulty. You will need to replace a new print head, you will need to send the unit to service shop to get it replace and normally it's not cheap .

hello

i have this link below that gives you allinformation about your Epson printer. specifically the manual , required for review to address the issue with the ink cartridge error.

Run a Printer Check A printer check will help you determine if the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating properly. 1. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series and your computer, if connected. 2. Disconnect any connected USB cables. 3. Load plain paper in the sheet feeder. 4. Press Setup. 5. Select Maintenance and press OK. 6. Select Nozzle Check and press OK. 7. Press cx7400_cx8400_ug.1.109.1.jpg Start. 8. The Epson Stylus CX8400 Series begins printing the nozzle check pattern. • If the page prints, your Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating. Your problem may be caused by your computer, cable, software, or setting selections. Check for additional solutions or re-install your software. If the pattern on the page has gaps, clean or align the print head. • If the page does not print, the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series may have a problem. Check for additional solutions. If they don't work, contact Epson.

Epson cx8400. I've put in new black ink cartridge, but when I conduct a nozzle pattern check, the black will not print. I've run head cleaning 4 times & it still won't print black.


For some cases the automatic head cleaning dosen't resolve blocked nozzle issues. For such you simply need to go manual; so please try the procedure below. If you are not at all a technical person get a brother, sister, husband, wife etc who is to help.


Ink may be new, but their nozzles may be blocked; depending on manner of storage. To be sure apply a folded tissue paper to the ink nuzzle and press firmly. If the tissue comes off well blotted with ink it means you still have a good amount of ink in it and the nozzle is not blocked. If not blotted or scantily blotted, it means ink is really low or nozzle is blocked. To be very sure of this, place nuzzle in a plate/saucer with a bit water so that the nozzle is soaked. Leave for about 10 minutes. Then apply the tissue again. If still not well blotted it means ink is really low or empty. If new you should return it for a replacement. In the case of blocked nozzles, the procedure may be repeated over to get results.

Epsonr220 does not print megenta or light megenta colors


The problem seems to be the printhead nozzels are plugged or burntout. I beleive on the Epson, to remove the printhead for cleaning, you must partially disassemble the printer. If you are not up for this, Quit here. If you game, remove the cartridges and tape over the outlet and air hole of each. I find electrical tape the best. Tape snugly but not too tight and once around the cart. If you have a digital camera or a webcam, take photos along the way to help in re-assembly. Remove the drive belt and disconnect the guide rod the printhead slides on at each end. Try and remove the guide rod and print head as one unit. Use alcohol and/or water to clean the print head nozzels, or completely wash the print head with running water. Blow it off and let dry. Put the guide rod back in the print head and put that assembly back in the printer. Attach the guide rod at each end then put the belt back in place. Put the cartridges back and do a nozzel/print head check. If the printer works completely, then you are set. If the magenta still doesn't work, the nozzels may be burnt out. I don't think you can get Epson Print heads, That means a new printer. Lastly DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK. I can't even guarantee my work!

I just bought new ink and nothing prints clearly


If it hasn't printed anything for a couple of years then the print heads will be severely clogged with dried ink. Epson recommends printing a page or two every month to keep the heads clear. You need to try cleaning the print heads, its unlikely that one or two head cleans will clear a badly clogged nozzle. Try doing 4 or 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:
http://www.powerklin.co.uk/?gclid=CNGDypir-JgCFQ4yQgodZlC4lw
Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Note that head cleaning uses between 5 and ten percent of your ink cart's, if any are low on ink, have some new ones ready.
If you need to know how to do head cleans & nozzle checks, the user guide can be downloaded from Epson here:

Pluged ink nozzels


Hi

Try to run head cleaning cycles from printer utility. then print a nozzle check pattern. If all fails then you have to bring it to a servicer to unclog nozzles.

Hope this helps
