Epson SX110 printer does not print

I assume from your description that the printer is going through the motions of printing but not putting ink from one or more colours to paper. If this is the case please it is likely that the printhead has developed a slight blockage or ceased to function.

-Print a nozzle check from your printers software. This will show you clearly which colours are not printing correctly.
-Run 1-3 head cleans using the printers software with a nozzle check after each one.
-If this doesn't resolve the issue it is possible you simply have a defective cartridge and I would recommend replacing it and trying again.
-If this doesn't help or the problem is across all colours it is likely the printhead is severely dried or has reached the end of its life. So I would either take it to an Epson service center or if the printer is not worth the expense you just keep running head cleans (with 5-10 minute gaps between cleans).

Hope this helps.

After cleaning the printhead, when asked to print, the carriage moves to the left and the printer turns off.


Head cleaning is mechanical process, printing is electrical process. If nothing at all ink out/spray from head in printing process, problem with electricity. Damage board or short circuit at head cable. Check board first, may be some component "burn". It is suggested to contacted Epson customer support before further damage occurs.

Please check this bellow tutorial for more details of print head cleaning:-

However check the link bellow for the user guide to your printer, kindly go through it where it gives detailed instructions of various problems along with cleaning of printhead,may be you have performed something wrong to assemble/install the printer after cleaning the print head or some connection problem.

Please get back to us if you have further query else please accept the suggestion.

Nope you dont need one. Just turn the printer off while not in use or if youre planning not to use it for a long time, run some head cleaning cycles as well and print a nozzle check before printing photos. have the same printer and love them so much.

Thanks for using fixya!
