Question about Epson CX8400 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I have an Epson CX 8400. I have cleaned the heads & aligned them but I either get very poor quality or no color in the print & scan mode. Black prints scans fine. Is there a way to manually clean the ink jets?
# Hold the cartridge upside down, with the bar-code label facing you and take a damp paper towel.If cart as the print head separate then remove the print head and follow the procedure ...
# Use the towel to wipe the printhead of the cartridge on the bottom (where the ink comes out). Wipe the printhead horizontally in one direction only (left to right).
# Continue doing this until it looks clean.
# Then dab the cartridge on the towel to make sure the ink is flowing.
# Next, look inside the printer and locate the carrier that holds ink cartridges. Caution: Make sure the cartridges are not installed at this point.
1. Look for a shiny piece of metal underneath the contacts at the back of the carrier.
2. Take a damp cotton swab (use water only!) and wipe along the bottom of the shiny metal piece. Note: You may need more than one swab.
# Reinstall the cartridges, making sure you snap them correctly into the printer.
