I have an Epson Stylus Photo R260 inkjet Printer that is printing fine except the black ink is leaking all over the page or CD/DVD that I print. I have done numorous head cleanings, and it still is all...


I found this on fixya per dgsturt

It looks like you've managed to get ink all over the shop by using the self clean option. That't mainly to clear bocked print heads and tends to squirt a load of ink through.

That ink has to go somewhere, it looks like you may have some on your rollers.

First, I'd have a look through the printer menu see if there's a roller cleaning option, give that a go.

Second, I'm not sure but worth a try, try printing a document that has wording all down the page but use an empty cartridge. If your printer will do this you’re effectively using a sheet of paper as a mop to clean the rollers.

Third, probably the most difficult, get some Isoproprial Alcohol from the chemist and try and clean the rollers and print bed yourself with a lint free cloth and cotton buds, what ever works.

If you don't like the idea of Isoproprial Alcohol, it is highly infamable, try with a damp cloth first, but it will take longer to dry off.


If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks.....

I replaced the black ink cartridge but I can't print


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. You need to consider 2 things, firstly the official line: Epson (and all other inkjet manufacturers) do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing. It is also why the "print in Black only" option (available on some printers) only works when the coloured inks are OK.
The 2nd unofficial line is that it is a win-win situation for manufacturers. Firstly they get to cut down on costly warranty call outs for blocked heads (replacement printers, technician manhours, etc) and secondly they get to sell lots more inks (Ka-ching!). If you really want to print black text only (and save cash on price per-print) then a mono-laser printer is the best way as they can now be bought at inkjet prices.

Black Ink


Check in the printer utilities and make sure that it is not set to "draft" mode. Also may want to clean the area in the printer where the business end of the ink cartridge rests. Using the "head cleaning" feature doesn't always work completely. Go to your local pharmacy and ask the druggist for Lab Swabs. They are longer than a Q-Tip and only have cotton at one end. You will need the extra length to reach where you need to clean. Use isopropyl alcohol and gently rub the effected area. See if this helps. also may want to try uninstalling the printer drivers completely and reinstalling them. This works in a lot of cases. There are more problems with printers than any other component in a computer system.
