Ways to avoid getting clogged nozzles on your epson printers.


Three common ways that the printhead on Epson inkjet printers clog up.
1. Generic Ink is used. The problem with generic ink, is not only the chemical composition is different; thus not getting the best quality prints, but the viscosity. I have 2 different types of issues. If the ink is too thin, then the ink will seep through the casing and burn the printhead board. If the ink is too thick, it will start to build up in the tubes of the printhead until it clogs up the tube. It very similar to cholesterol. The more greasy foods you eat, the smaller the passage way in the arteries become. Once the nozzle clogs up, the ink can not flow anymore, dries up and no ink comes out.

2. Not using the printer a long time. If you don't use your printer more than 3 weeks (+/- a week or so), there is a good chance the ink in the printhead will dry up. Similar to milk in the fridge. I am sure you dont want to drink milk thats been in the fridge for more than a month. Usually the ink near the nozzles dry and do not allow the printhead to spit out the ink.

3. Lastly, we see printers with clogged printhead when users print big jobs just after the printer reports low ink. When this happens, the ink in the resovoire (sp?) will empty and then air will be sucked into the nozzles. As soon as oxygen and the ink mix, the process of drying ink begins to form. Air pockets and dried up ink stop the process of flow to the paper.

The only option usually is to take it to a service center, they will inject into the nozzles a type of acid that eats up the dried up ink. It works about 65-70% of the time. Also some of the liquid is put into the cleaning station that goes below the printhead when it is parked.

thank you

Printing 8 x 10 photos


When it's humid out it takes longer for the ink to dry. Especially for larger photos where a lot of ink is used. Also, lesser quality ink takes longer to dry. I would recommend using a dehumidifier in the room where you are printing the photos to dry out the air a bit and allow your ink to dry quicker.

Your print heads most likely need to be cleaned.

When you don't use your ink carts for a while, when you get new ink carts that have been stored in warehouses for a number of months, or when you have refilled a slightly too dry ink cart, the print head nozzles on the bottom of the ink carts get clogged with dried ink. The printer head cleaner menu will not disolve the dried ink. Water will. Try this. Soak the bottom of the clogged ink cart in 1/2 inch of hot water for 15-30 minutes. Blot dry with clean paper towel(you should see the ink color on the towel). Retry.

How do I clean the printer nozzles as it leaves streekes on printed pictures?


If the ink is smearing, it probably is not getting enough drying time. The ink drying time is a period of time inserted between pages to reduce the chance that a page will smear the one below it in the output tray. This time is factored into the time between when the first page finishes and when the next page finishes. Printing will pause temporarily if more time is needed. The time it takes for ink to dry varies greatly depending on paper type, printer driver settings, humidity, and temperature. In addition, the paper and print settings may affect the speed at which the ink can dry:
  • Transparencies require much longer drying times than other paper types.
  • Some store-branded photo papers do not allow ink to dry correctly because of the coatings used in their manufacture.
  • Printing in Best mode can increase the dry time.
Resolving the problem If the ink smears, increase the drying time. To increase the drying time in Windows, follow the steps below:
  1. When ready to print, click File , click Print .
  2. Depending on your driver version, click Properties , Settings , or Preferences and follow the steps below depending on the option.
    • For Properties or Settings , follow the steps below:
      1. Click the Advanced tab.
      2. In the Extra Dry Time section, move the slider toward More .
    • For Preferences , follow the steps below:
      1. Click the Basics tab.
      2. From the Basics tab, click Advanced Features .
      3. In the Extra Dry Time section, move the slider toward More .
  3. Try a sample print and see if the drying time needs to be increased more.
To increase the drying time for a Macintosh computer, follow the steps below:
  1. From the File/Print Menu , select Ink under the General tab.
  2. In the Dry Time section, move the slider toward More .
  3. Try a sample print and see if the drying time needs to be increased more.
Other steps that will reduce ink smearing If the ink still smears when printing, try some of the following suggestions:
  • Decrease the amount of time it takes for the ink to dry by decreasing the print quality to Normal or Fast mode.
  • Try printing on a different type of paper or on paper from another manufacturer. Paper formulas are different between manufacturers and may have a coating that causes the ink to be absorbed at different rates.
  • When printing large graphics or photos on plain paper in Best or Normal modes, improve the results by using heavier paper. Paper that is rated at 90 g/m2 (24 lb.) or higher will not curl or smear as easily as paper of a lighter weight.

Ink not dry when printing photographs


Download the proper drivers from hp.com - DON"T use standard Windows drivers.

When you have the proper drivers installed, you will find an "Advanced" tab in your "Printing Preferences" where you can set "Ink Volume" and "Dry Time".
Try using less ink and a longer dry time.

Also, make sure you're using photopaper that is designed for "INK JET PRINTERS".
(Laser Jet paper won't work).

Any photo that you print on glossy/semi-gloss paper will be wet as it emerges from the printer (especially ones requiring lots of ink).

You could manualy "catch" each one and set aside to dry, which should only take a minute or two.

Professional printers use a special drying powder and timed spray rig when printing on coated cover stock and glossy materials.
