Question about Epson Stylus Photo R340 InkJet Printer
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
