Epson Print Head Cleaning

Written by on

Here is an alternate method for cleaning your Epson print head. Epson use a "Piezo" print head which are very  prone to clogging. Clogging is the result of ink hardening on the surface of the print head resulting in very poor print quality or even stopping printing altogether. As well as the method shown in the video it is also good to flush your print head every so often. This removes any dry ink and contaminants from within the print head and assures you of high quality prints. We recommend our Print Head Cleaning solution for this purpose.

If the above method doesn't work for you then you may need to flush the print head with our powerful cleaning solution !

As a follow up to this article another method to clean an Epson printhead is to put the printer into its highest quality print mode and then print an image that has a lot of the missing colour in it. What I mean is that if the Magenta isnt coming out properly then print an image which is largely Magenta in colour.

This method is very effective and uses less ink than running printhead cleans. For more detailed info take a look at the following video.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCtUyQsYobw
