SOURCE: Epson CX4800 cannot clean the print heads

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

the heads are removable if you remove the back plastic cartridge holder first with pointed pliers then there are two screws at base accessable with printer intackted. you only have to set the carrage to cartridge change position to do this. once removed use a rubber tube on a cyringe filled with water and blow jets through several times and replace as removed....

The print heads are usually a little out of position on the carriage. All printers have some process to cope with this, called alignment. It prints a few trials and you nominate which is best. It then remembers the correction needed. On your printer it is described here

I have replaced the cartridge cleaned the nozzle heads but my photos are a funny fuzzy colour. It is about 18mts old and hasn't been used much Thanks


It's a EPSON printer, you have to use it at least twice a month, otherwise the ink on the print heads will dry and clog them. If the printer cleaning process doesn't solve the issue, you'll have to take it to the service center to get the print heads replaced.

RED WON'T PRINT


Hi-

Try running a head cleaning from your computer, if you are using XP go to printers and faxes under control panel and right click on your printer icon then go to printing preferences then go to maintenance and run head cleaning cycles for 3x then print a nozzle again. if all fails cal epson and check for the warranty so that you can have it replace, coz chances are the nozzle for magenta is clog.

Hope this helps
