I have heard of people replacing printheads, but it really is a waste of good money. A printhead alone can cost up to $100 or more. A new unit (CX500 or similar) is well under $100 - solution seems obvious.

Hi

Try to clean it manually by removing the ink cartridge and then clean the print head with softcloth with rubbing alcohol. Then rub again the printhead into a plain paper until ink flows. Then try to print again.

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

My 5500 printer is printing blank pages - can you help?

Hi

Does the ink cartridges are new or old? How long did you stop printing? Because if you stop printing for a very long time, the ink dries up and you need a little cleaning for the print head. Remove the ink cartridges and rub the print head into a plain paper with alcohol until ink flows and the run the cleaning maintenance like print alignment or print nozzle.

Please let me know if you need more help.

Suddenly stopped printing all colors. Will only

Hi, it could be few things wich you having problem with.

First, how old are the ink tanks, it could be clodged.
Second the print head nozzles are clodged at that places.
Third, the purge unit does not work OK.

First remove all inks out and remove print head. Then on wet cloth, wet it with distiled water, few times press the bottom of print head ( nozzles ), then the 4 circles must change from colour to white. That means that nozzles are cleaned.
Dry head by pressing it on dry cloth.

Put it in, also the inks, and run few times the deep head cleaning. Every time take a look at print pattern.
If the head is to badlly clodged, test pattern would be just a little bit more better.

But now you know if the problem is in head or something else ( purge unit or inks ). The new head isnt so cheap regarding the printer so then the best solution would be to buy new printer.
If you do not want to buy laser colour printer, atleast buy one on wich ink tanks has printhead on. Its slightly costly, but you have one worry less - the print head is changed every time you change the ink.

Hope that helped

When i try to print the color black is not printing have pleanty of ink did 6 head cleans raised the ink slightly above print heads please give suggestions regards Darrell daley

Epson's are sensitive that way. You'll have to run the head cleaning until the problem is fixed. I see this more with printers that are not turned off properly after use. The print heads need to "park" after they print to prevent them from drying up. This may be why yours is taking so long to clear up. Sort of like windshield wipers that take longer to remove old bug platters over fresh ones. Funny but true.

Printer not printing black

The head may need to be removed and cleaned with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab or you can purchase a head cleaning kit with instructions. The toner sometimes needs replacement

Will not print annymore

Thomas You need to get yourself a pint bottle or even two pints of ink solvent and a syringe and spray it into the print heads where you removed the ink cartridges and let it set about two hours. don't be conservative with the solvent. Please read the manual for your printer and after you run the printer through several cycles you will see the differences put the old cartridges in the trash and install new cartridges. this can be prevented if you run the printer through its self test and run clean print head cycles.
NOTE: put paper towels in the bottom of the printer so as to not make to big a mess
