Question about Epson Stylus Photo R320 InkJet Printer
It need to replace the printer heads
Posted on Nov 06, 2011
If the machine goes through the motions of printing i.e. it pulls in the paper and the head runs back and forth but put no ink on the page then it would suggest either a fault with the pump cap and/or the pipes from it to the waste pads OR that the heads are clogged.
If you have no flashing warning lamps and the ink loss was gradual over say a page or after the machine has stood for a while, then you should try an under head cleaning routine as in some of my earlier posts. like this one http://www.fixya.com/support/t137335-problem_print_outs_from_printer
If the ink loss was sudden - like after changing the inks, have you checked to see that you have removed any and all sealing tapes. You do not mention if you are using genuine inl or compatibles. If using compatibles I would try the cleaning cycle first to clear the dried crud from under the head. Ever wonder why Epson do not make cleaning cartridges but almost ALL compatible ink manufacturers do?
Try the cleaning and let me know how you get on
