Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles. If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive. It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.
1. You may have a clogged print head. 2. these print head are usually good 4 so many prints then will fail. 3. I heard on tech here swear by placing the head in hot water and unclogging it but I think in the long run that will be a print head replacement. I would contact the manufacturer and ask what cleaning method (manual) they recommend because each print head design is somewhat different whereas the operation is the same. 4. I manually clean with denatured alcohol and a Q tip. Some time works /sometime it doesn't .
Hi, one or two head cleans won't clear a clogged nozzle. Try doing 4 or 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one: http://www.powerklin.co.uk/?gclid=CNGDypir-JgCFQ4yQgodZlC4lw
Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning". Note that head cleaning uses between 5 and ten percent of your ink cart's, if any are low on ink have some new ones ready. Hope this helps. Please take a moment to rate this solution, thanks.
Clear the paper jam. Then with a cotton pad and some alcohol, clean all the rollers that you see. If you can get to the rear of the printer, make sure that there isn't any paper residue back there, and also clean the rollers in the back. There is a platen (rod that the print head slides on) clean that too.
Then carefully clean the strip in front of the print head.
Also, never move the print head while the power is on, it will cause the unit to get off it's alignment.
Let me know what results.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it. Thanks, Joe
The print head nozzles is clogged but good. None of the cleaning the machine can do will clear it. Been there and trid that. Doesn't work. The clogs need to be dissolved with a specialty clog buster and probably will need to soak at least 24 hours, maybe more. Don't deep clean any more as you will put so much in in the absorbent blotters on the inside of the printer that you will trigger an error code and not be able to print until the absorbant pads are replaced by a service tech for about $100.
