I would like to put the cleaning process through, as i hav'nt used it for 6 months. epson stylus TX710W.


The print head clean maintenance is usually located in the printer Properties.
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.

I have reinstalled the printhead several times it still says it is missing the printer is brand new


If the printer is "brand new" it has a warranty.
Either call the place that sold it to you, or the manufacturer.
Don't void the warranty.

My hp dj9000s printer is switched off since 6 month, now I switch on it shown error message for Lc, Lm ink cartridge. (cartridge is ok I replace with new one but error is same)


If an inkjet printer has not been used for some time and several print head deep cleaning has been done and it still does not print properly then the nozzles in the print head are blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent nozzles blocking with dried ink.
You need to replace the print head to get the printer functioning again.
But these print heads are expensive to replace, it may be better to buy a better and a later model printer for not much more costs.

Hi Good day!!! Try to clean your print head

Please follow this step:

1. Turn on the computer and monitor. If using a Windows-based computer, click the "Start" button on the toolbar at the bottom of the monitor screen.

2. Move to "Settings," then "Control panel."

3. In "Control panel," look for "Printers and other hardware." Click on it. Inside this dialog box, you should now click on "Printers and faxes."

4. In the "Printers and faxes" dialog box, select the HP printer icon.

5. Using the right mouse button, click on the "HP printer" icon. At the bottom of the list, click on "Properties."

6. You should see seven tabs in this dialog box. To clean the printer heads, click on the "Services" tab. Under this tab, select "Align the printer cartridges" and "Clean the printer cartridges." For now, click on "Clean printer cartridges."

7. A new dialog box should appear, then click on the "Clean" button. The cleaning will now begin for the printer heads. This only takes about two minutes to complete. If you think your printer heads have not be cleaned well enough, do another test until the printer functions as it should.

8. Cleaning printer heads is something that should be done on a regular basis. Cleaning the printer heads will keep the printer from being ruined and causing unnecessary headaches.

My printer won't print it sat for 6 months we put new ink in and it scans and goes through the actions but doesn't print ink


The problem with printers like Epson is that they cannoy stand without being used for that long. The print head that is largely responsible for print quality is built into the machine and the last ink that passed through 6 months ago is hardened inside. Dry several deep cleanings with nozzle checks inbetween. You may need to send it for manual print head cleaning with a printer technician.

White line


White lines are generally caused by clogged print nozzles. I assume that you have a printer with the print heads built into the cartridge. Are you using high quality cartridges or cheap refills? If cheap refills, try a better/different brand of cartridges and see if that helps. I would also check the printer manufacturers website and try their recommended printer nozzle cleaning procedure.

Bad print job


Have you changed the cartridges?Once they sit in a printer for awhile the print nozzles get clogged with dried ink.Sometimes the printer can clean them on its own but with most inkjet printers all the workings are in the cartridge itself.

Cleaning or replacing printhead / hose


Buy them at a official EPSON service center or throw away the printer and buy a HP.
Actual EPSON printers uses 5 ml ink cartridges for each color and black. HP printers has the same volume cartridges but there are only 2, tricolor and black.
If a HP printing head becomes clogged (don't worry, it almost never happens), just throw away the cartridge and install another (the print head comes with the ink cartridge). If a EPSON print head becomes clogged you have no other choice than buying another printer because EPSON's print heads are expensive and become discontinued 12 months after the printer model was launched to the market.

Also, HP Printers are cheaper than those from EPSON and offers excellent print quality on any paper. Compare a 10 years old HP printer with actual EPSON's and the HP has the sharpest black printing. The color is another story.
