Printer is printer blank pages - no ink is coming out of nozzles. I have gone through cleaning processes numerous times. I already replaced with new cartridges - still not working. Is there anything else I can do?

If you can get to the nozzles, soak them in hot water (almost boiling), set on CLEAN cotton cloth, repeat several times. Nozzles should exhibit color of ink. Do this until all areas on cotton cloth are saturated or have no more ink. Maybe 3 or 4 times. replace into printer and replace ink. Epson has updated this printer and I use the 320 which is a couple years newer than yours and couple years older than current models. If you get it working, use the 'ciss' ink and DO NOT run out. The ink (obvious to you at this point) dries out and hardens inside the nozzles.
Hope this helps.

Have tried printing from computer and tried printing test page from printer. both times the pages come out blank.. how do I check the toner levels in printer. thank you


The draw back of inkjet technology printers are, if it is not using quite long period of time,cartridge nozzles will dry up, result printer will act just like a printing some thing but nothing will come on paper(blank page) even ink levels are showing full.
Try to recover the both cartridges through 'clean print cartridge' process from the system,if not better consult cartridge re-filler to clean the nozzles..Replace new cartridges if above said methods are not worked out.

No ink on printed pages


Try to pull out the ink cartridges. Then after 1 minute put the cartridges on. Then it will initiate head cleaning. Just perform the head cleaning to clean clogged nozzles. Then try to print a test page.

Pages will not print. The correct number print,


IT MEANS that the nozzles might be clogged, perform a cleaning cycle for about 3 to 5 times to clear the dried up inks blocking your nozzles.

Blank pages are printing! The printer sounds and acts like it is printing, but the page comes out blank.


Your ink levels may be low (or old and drying up), or the ink nozzles may be plugged. Replace the cartridges if you are out of ink. If you have lots of ink, you could attempt to clean the nozzles with cue-tips and a very mild vinegar-water solution.

Not printing, only blank pages


Hi

Try doing a head cleaning cycle by pressing the ink button for more than 3 seconds and it will make a noise as it attenpt to clean the nozzles, try reprinting. If you are still getting a blank page chances are the nozzles are clogged and yo may need to bring it in a service center or replace it since this is a known issue for this printer.

Hope this helps

Epsom stylus c84 major lines thru pages. Already cleaned heads.


Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select head clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print.

If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, and you're sure you have good ink cartridges properly installed, 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 out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head 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 by hand fully
into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If you get any black ink on the nozzle check, then there is hope! Repeat the process
until you get a full black nozzle check. If nothing, repeat the process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

Epson printing not printing


If you have already tried 3 consecutive head cleanings and nozzle check from the computer, tried reseating the inks and tried replacing the ink and it still acts like its printing but just provides a blank page chance are your printer already has hardware issue. The ink delivery system is already clogged. If your printer is still within the 1-year warranty period I suggest that you call Epson Tech support for more options otherwise, you would need to get the product repaired by an Epson certified service center.
