Epson stylus 4800 pro. Heads are clean. There is plenty of ink. When I test print it does not print anything. No error message. The printer acts like everything is OK. It has not printed since i cleaned the capping stations with simple green.

My first thought is that the ink gelled in the nozzles. How long were the cartridges out while you cleaned the unit? Try wiping the contacts of the printer cartridge and carrier with a damp cloth (lint-free). If that doesn't work, a syringe without a needle with a short piece of tubing (sized to fit the syringe opening) can sometimes be used to vacuum out the clogs. Just put the end of the tubing against the nozzle opening(s) and pull back on the plunger.

If that doesn't work, try brand new Epson cartridges (not remanufactured).

I hope this helps.

    You said it doesn't print anything when you do a test print. Do you get a blank page out of the printer? Is the printer seen by the computer (and the port set correctly - look at the device manager). Check that the printer is feeding the paper correctly (single sheet can have issues with moisture).

    I hope this helps.

Does not print


Hi,
First of all please check the ink level. If it is not finished try followings:

First try to run a cleaning cycle. To do that:
- Load paper in the paper tray. - Access printer utilities. (Right click your printer icon, select printing preferences and click the utility tab to access printer utilities) - Click the nozzle check icon. - Print to check it.
Then click the clean button to clean the print head. - Try it a few times.
İf it doesn't help you can try to run power cleaning cycle. But it uses much ink. There must be enough ink in the cartridge.
Hope this helps.

Heads will not clean, done everything Epson Stylus Pro4800 Manual says it has cost me a fortune in ink and waste tank. Is there an easy way to clean heads?


Usually the simple way to clean old ink from heads is to get a container of alcohol from the drug store and either using a Q-tip or paper towel soaked - wipe the print surface of the head to remove the old ink, then run the head clean utility once after. If you cannot reach the head surface, move the print head to change ink position, unplug the printer and fold and lay the paper towel soaked in alcohol under the head and manually move the head back and forth by hand to clean it. You may need several sheets of towel and alcohol to do this. Fold the paper thick enough so it will touch the head surface to clean.

All 8 new ink cartridges, new MT tank, nothing prints. it goes thru the motions of rinting, but no little to no ink is on paper, less and less ink each subsequent print. Most recent print has a hint of...


take your ink cartridge out from your printer. you can see at the ink carriage there are little pipes where the ink usually flow from cartridge. If head cleaning and power cleaning does not work, then try to clean those pipes by using 96% alcohol fluids and **** the pipes using something.

After multiple head cleanings one color still does not print.


Please explain your problem. Do you get a good Nozzle Check? Do not do a bunch of cleanings...you might be just wasting ink.
