Question about Epson C64 InkJet Printer
My rx620 when it does a nozzle check it misses lines with the pink color only a line at the top and a line at the bottom. I have tried a number of head cleans but to no avail. I took the machine to the local store and they tried cleaning it with cleaning cartridges but no luck. I have called an epson dealer and he says he will check it for me but it will cost perhaps more than the printer is worth. Could you please give some advise?
This is aimed at arbat, since it's an awful long time since tomintown had the problem!
Are you confident the yellow cartridge is good? Have you tried replacing it? If you are confident that the yellow cartridge is
working properly, then you can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head assembly by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head assembly fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean again. If still nothing, report back.
