Epson 1000 ICS All-in-One Printer

Selected FAQ

Q:
The EPSON 1000 ICS sounds as though it is printing, but nothing prints or the printout is light or has lines in it. Why?
A:
Make sure the print head nozzles are not clogged. You may need to clean the print head. This unclogs the nozzles so they can deliver ink properly.
Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only if quality declines. When you don't turn on your EPSON 1000 ICS for a long time, the print quality can decline. It's a good idea to turn on your EPSON 1000 ICS at least once a month to maintain good print quality.

1. Make sure the EPSON 1000 ICS is turned on but not printing, and the Error light is off.
If the Error light is flashing or on, you may need to replace an ink cartridge.
2. Press the left Menu button on the control panel several times until you see Cleaning and then press the Copy button.
Cleaning takes about 30 seconds, during which the EPSON 1000 ICS makes some noise and the Operate light flashes. Never turn off the EPSON 1000 ICS while the Operate light is flashing, unless the EPSON 1000 ICS hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.
