Selected FAQ

Q:
The printer sounds like it is printing, but no ink is on the paper. What's wrong?
A:
The print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the EPSON printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check must be performed as a cycle. After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Perform up to 3 cycles if necessary. If the nozzle check is not printing completely, and if the head cleanings do not help the nozzle check pattern to print completely, try replacing the ink cartridge. You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight. This allows any dried ink to soften, and then try cleaning the print head again. If nothing helps, your printer may require service and you should contact the EPSON Connection for further assistance. Caution: Don't touch the green chip on the back of the cartridge. If anything other than the yellow seal has been removed from the ink cartridge, do not install the cartridge. If you have already installed it, even if the printer is printing correctly, change the cartridge immediately
