The printhead is a component in a printer that houses ink cartridges. It`s typically located under the cover of your printer, and it can become clogged with ink over time.
A printhead can usually be cleaned in one of two ways: through software on your PC or manually by taking out the printhead.
Cleaning the print head will start the ink cartridge replacement process. If you do not intend to replace an ink cartridge, press the ink button again to return the print head to its home position. The printer starts cleaning the print head and the power light and the ink lights begin flashing.
Your printer displays the “Missing or Failed Printhead” error to signal a malfunctioning printhead. The issue could be due to clogged ink nozzles, dirty ink cartridges, internal paper jams, and more. HP printers may also display this error if the printhead pulls air from ink cartridges.
A print head scratch occurs when an accumulation of dust or debris gets stuck in your machine. And if this happens, the damage cannot be fixed. In most cases, you would need to purchase a new printhead. That`s why it`s important to keep the dust out, away from your machine.
The sponge end of a blocked printer head can be cleaned with only one liquid other than water. This liquid is isopropyl alcohol. Isopropyl alcohol isn`t strong enough to melt the sponge but is still strong enough to dissolve the ink inside the blocked printer head.
Soak the Printhead

Fill a bowl with warm water (or a mixture of water and vinegar to clean the printhead) and place the printhead directly in it. Let it sit for five minutes or so. Pull the printhead out of the water and use a lint-free cloth or paper towel to remove the dried ink.

Life of a printhead is directly depends on printing value. High flow of color from printhead can destroy it very soon. So, it has been noticed that text prints with normal text can print around 30000–40000 pages in a lifespan.
You may need to clean the print head up to 4 times. You can also turn off your Epson printer and wait at least 6 hours. Then try printing again.

Canon i255 printer head error
ANSWER : Sometimes the print head issues are brought on not by a flawed print head but rather by a “gunky” stopping station. The stopping station is the spot where the print head “rests” when it is not printing. Generally it’s on the right half of the printer (taking a gander at the printer from the front). The stopping station has elastic seals that should encompass the print head when it’s stopped.
