If you can remove the print head, place the head on a paper towel with hot water..the head should bleed ink.

If this is an inkjet they colors may have dried. Try taking them out and putting a moist cloth on them. Don't not do this if it a laser based printer.

It will not print boldly ,it is very faint, yet I thought the ink cartridge was pretty new.It has been in storage for about 16 months though


The cartridges for these printers have a limited lifespan, the ink can dry up after a while which is the result of your feint printing. You can remove the cartridge and try cleaning the tip using a cotton bud (or q-tipp) with just a little warm water. Ensure it is dry before placing back in the printer. If you still have feint printing then alas you need a new cartridge.

Black printing very faint or not at all, cleaning print head makes little difference Brand new Cartridge


Sometimes it will print faint black even if there is a new black cartridge, because the color cartridge needs to be replaced as well.

Make sure that the cartridges are genuine Kodak cartridges, as well, for maximum performance and reliability.

Cleaning heads can use up a lot of ink, by the way.

I havent used it in months i shake the inks and they have some inside but when i try to print i get a blank page


It seems that Epsons ink clog up after sitting.
You may need to bring the headd over as you were to change cartridges and remove them.Unplug machine.Now take 5 or 6 drops of ammonia and put them in the ink well hole.Re-install carts and let it sit for 45min to one hour.Plug back in and do a nozzle check.If someyjing comes out but faint repeat process until happy.
If this does not work you may have to get a new head,usually less expensive to invest in a new printer.
Always run a test page weekly on an Epson to prevent this from happening again!!

The inkjets are blocked with dry ink. There is a solution available in PC shops to clean them.

When printing, as thepaper is being transported up the printer, try pressing the right door panel of the printer firmly with your hand. If the colours are much improved then the printer requires a new Transfer roller.
1. Open the Right Door.
2. Remove the Transfer Roller while opening the shaft holder (white color) levers found at the left and right shaft ends of the Transfer Roller to unlock it. Lift out the roller.

Printing faint lines with fine corresponding creases on drum


You probably can not repair it. I will say this though, be careful to get the right labels for it.
