Make sure that the printer is turned on and the ink out light is off. Access the Print or Page Setup dialog box and click the Utility icon button, then click the Head Cleaning button. Follow the on-screen instructions. The power light and the ink lights flash while the printer performs the cleaning cycle.
Try removing your cartridges from your printer, and then shutting your printer down. Turn it on after a few hours and wait for your printer to recognize that there aren`t any cartridges installed in the printer. Install all of the cartridges back into the printer and try printing.
Epson recommends replacing ink cartridges every six months to ensure quality prints (Image source: The Spectraflow).
A printer should be cleaned inside out and covered after use. It has delicate parts that get coated with dust. At regular intervals clean it from inside to avoid accumulation of dust and grime. Use a lint-free cloth or moistened cotton swab for cleaning.
The Power Cleaning utility allows you to replace all of the ink inside the ink tubes. In the following situations, you may need to use this feature to improve the print quality. You printed or performed head cleaning when the ink levels were too low to be seen in the ink tank windows.
As print quality goes down over time, this will be a reason to replace the color printer. We find a black and white printer can sometimes last 10 years or more and most color laser printers are replaced every 3 to 5 years.
Check the LCD display to see which cartridge is low or empty. If you`re printing from your computer, you`ll see a message telling you which cartridge is low or empty. Click the “How to” button to see instructions for replacing the cartridge.
If you do not turn on the printer for a long time, the printer may malfunction. If you will not use the printer for more than two weeks, maintenance must be performed by a service engineer before and after this period.
Printers used to print a few documents a week likely only need annual servicing, whereas an office printer that is in constant demand likely needs servicing more frequently. With proper care and maintenance, your office printer can last several years.
