Question about Epson Stylus CX5400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I changed ink cartridges ..now it won't print. If ink dried in the nozzles, is it possible to access them to clean/flush ? ( repeated head cleaning and nozzle checks do nothing but deplete the rather costly ink supply)
I couldnt find anything that would work on my printer so in desperation I tried the cleaning seven times...lo and behold..,success

Blank pages and bad print are not the same problem. Regarding costly ink, a epson printer tech told me once that the secrete to cleaning a bad print head was to run deep clean 7 times in a row and then a head test and it has worked for me several times on other printers (not an expert here, just personal experience).
Additional note, I have seen both cleaning chemicals and cleaning cartridges on the web, example, searching google for one for my printer I would search for cc-bci-6c which is for a canon cyan cleaning cartridge. Don't know if they work but in case it helps.. good luck.

Try to do the Deep Clean Printhead function on your printer to force ink through the nozzles and clean possible clogs and dirt.
