300ml Epson Head Cleaner Kit - Power Blast Strong Cleaner, Unblocks Printer Nozzles
Most Epson Printers have a permanent print head. It does not matter whether you use Original Epson or compatible inks. At some stage in your printer’s life the nozzles will get blocked. No matter how many cleaning cycles you do.
Surprisingly nozzles can become blocked in a two month old printer. This happened with our Epson XP-422 Printer that was still on Epson original starter cartridges when the head became blocked because we had only used the printer a couple of times.
If you use Original Epson ink or compatible, then at some point you will get blocked nozzles and no matter how many cleaning cycles you do. The problem will not go away.
Sometimes head cleans can make the problem worse. Performing one or two head cleans should be enough you should never perform more than three in a row. Each time you clean the printer uses ink!
These tips will help stop your printer’s nozzles from drying out.
Never run more than three cleaning cycles. If your printer is not printing correctly after this, you will need to manually clean the print heads.
It’s a good idea to use the printer once a week. This will stop the ink from drying out in the nozzles.
You can turn your printer off and on again. The Printer will do a small cleaning cycle. This uses less ink than using the printer menu.
