Print a nozzle check from the maintenance menu

see which colours are missing, run through a few head cleans and print another nozzle check see if there is any improvement

also replace the cartridges of the missing colour they may be dried up. have seen this before where a 3/4 full black cartridge just completely stopped printing

if the problem still persists then get a syringe or an eye dropper and some form of spirit (I have used vodka in the past but clinical alcohol is recommended as not as sticky)

choose change cartridges from the menu then remove the power cord. with the cartridges removed you now have access to the printheads.

using the syringe (or eye dropper) place the nozzle on the spike that goes into the cartrige and inject a small amount of the alcohol leave this to soak for a few mins then mop up the excess with a cloth repeat this a couple of times put the ink back in power up and run another head clean (you can also put afew drops on the spounge that sits under the print head during the head clean

print the nozzle check again you shoudl see most of the nozzles are now working run another head clean if desired now try with a pic

have used this on various epson printers including a stylus 700 R340 & 360

You still have some clogged heads.Head cleaning once is sometimes not enough to clean your heads properly, especially if you are using 'compatible' ink cartridges. You need to clean your heads again, and possibly still again, until your test print pattern produces the correct colours.

Problem with a colour display on Hisense tv


If your picures are all purple it means that the green colour is missing. TV colour is made up by mixing Red, Green & Blue. Removing Green leaving Red & Blue makes purple. Study the green colour circuit for a fault and confirm that the green gun inside the tube is working.
