Purging Procedure - If you have just installed a new archival or Quadtone cartridge you must purge the Epson print head of all of the old, non-archival, ink before you can begin to print with the full archival effect. The print heads in the Epson 200/400/440/500/600/640/740/800/850/860/900/1160/1520/Photo/Photo 700/Photo EX/Photo 750/Photo 1200 printers hold about 3 to 5 pages worth of ink. Always run a Nozzle check before printing. Even if you get a perfect nozzle check on your first try after putting in a new cartridge, run at least one or two head cleaning cycles. This will prevent any excess ink from over filling the print head. After the cleaning cycles, use the purging test patterns below to purge your system of the old ink. After printing about 5 (8.5x11) pages of this pattern, 98% of the old ink will be gone. The rest will come out slowly and may take as many as 20 or more pages, but at the 98% point you will see good results. If you have an Epson 3000, 5000 or 9000. See below

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking 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 than replace the print head.

code 45 is lost connection:
so plug the USB cable to another USB-port on the printer and restart it with unplugging the electric cable behind. plug it in again and put the printer to "on"
- most probably then it will see the computer again
Code 45 Currently this hardware device is not connected to the computer epson-printer-error-codes-wutfveiel3ypko01ydor435x-4-0.jpg

Ensure cartridge fitted 100%, and you have taken off cartridge protectors, but the Printer should tell you why it's not printing !
sound simple to replace ink cartridge, but it can be tricky.

On most Epson printers the Adjustment program can be accessed via the printers interface, without need to do it via a pc. Without knowing the model it is fairly difficult to answer this question more fully. However if you have a manual or can download the manual from epson.com, there will be a chapter on manual head cleaning and adjustment proceedures.
