You may clean your print heads automatically or manually. to automatically clean you go to your print menu (ctrl P) and click on properties. Then go to the services tab and you will see the clean heads button. Click on it and the clean process will commence. You may need to repeat the procedure to get good results. To manually you bring out your ink cartridge and place the nozzle in little amount of water for say 5 to 10 mins. Bring it out and dab the nozzle with folded tissue paper. if you get a good blot of ink, you have successfully cleaned it. manual is used for stubborn cases.

Replace the cartridges.
Otherwise, it's unorthodox, but some users have found that this works in your situation. Remove the cartridge, cover the nozzle with a paper towel and use the pointed attachment of a vacuum to clean the dry ink from the cartridge. Be careful not to get ink all over. Then reseat the cartridge and print...

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

SOURCE: 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.

BLACK INK NOT WORKING


Black ink head clogged/cartridge empty. Go to Printer Utility and do a Nozzle Check, Print a Pattern. If Black pattern lines are missing/broken then do another cleaning. Don't forget to try a new cartridge if the cleanings do not work. Refurbished Epson printers are great and can be purchased at www.epson.com/clearance. I have used them for 15 years.

How do i change cartridges on an Epson Stylus SX100?


Hi

You do not say which operating system you are using.

In Windows operating systems, generally:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Epson SX100 icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.

or

Print a document > Print Dialog Box > click "How To..." > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.

Epson Stylus sx100 print cartridges. Compatibility


The chip on some of the compatible cartridges is not always reset and can show this sort of problem. Buy a chip re-setter (pretty cheap) and hopefully then they will work.
