Epson Stylus Head Cleaning Solution Plus
Re: Epson printer problem

You will want to press the button that you use to change the ink cartridge (the 3rd button). Once the carriage is in the "cartridge change position" you can unplug the printer. Then you are ready to flush out the heads. Click here for cleaning instructions http://www.wesesweb.web1000.com/printhead.html

The instructions are fairly easy to follow. If you need the head cleaning solution click here .http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kea0.html

Repairs: All Epson Stylus printers (except for the C64-C86, CX4600-CX6400 series) which don't print, or print choppy in black or color. For the other printers, as well as Canon BJCs, use the other repair kit.

Description:
  • This is the same chemical used by Epson in their service department
  • Easy to use, no disassembly required
  • Gently dissolves even the most stubborn clogs and restores output to dried out print nozzles and clogged printheads
  • In our testing on an Epson 600 that sat unused for several months, it 100% restored a head that had no output, with one application (Individual results may vary)
Note: This is not alcohol or Windex; it is an ink-specific solvent that has proven to be safe and effective for use on Epson printheads. Do not use alcohol or Windex, they will very likely ruin your printer.

Kit Includes:
  • 1 oz bottle Epson Stylus Head Cleaning Solution (enough to fix several printers)
  • 1 syringe applicator for dispensing solution
  • Simple directions for use
Price: $9.99 order form on link below

your print heads might be clogged. clean it the hardware way. not the software way. to do this, simply buy a print head cleaning solution for Epson Printers. now pull out all your print cartridges and put a small drop of cleaning solution to the pin-like plastics in the base where your heads are seated. drop and drop cleaning solution to dilute clogs. you can use syringe to sip out the solution from the area. after this hardware cleaning, do a software cleaning through performing a cleaning print heads in the epson tools under maintenance tab

If any ink cartridge is empty, you won't be able to print until you replace the empty cartridge. Leave any empty cartridge installed in the device until you have obtained a replacement.

The print heads will clog up in a week or two. So you also won't be able to print until you clean the print heads.

This is a utility to manage your ink. Gives an accurate count of how many ink shots are left in each cartridge. The printer told me I need a new magenta but this program says I have 13% left. It also has separate routines for cleaning the black and color (unfortunately not individual cartridges)

Printer won't print color


when you change the ink cartridges you are NOT changing the print head. The print head is in the carrier. If the print head has become clogged or worn then usually it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately it us probably cheaper to buy a new printer.
