The first step is completed. Next step is cleaning the print head.


Cleaning the print head.


First of all you need to clean the print head with dry and clean cloth. Pumped out any ink residues as shown in Figure 27. Do it with all four colours.

Figure 27.

Once you pumped out all the paint from the print head (Figure 28) you need to take another dry syringe with the washing liquid and insert it into the nozzle (Figure 29, 30, 31).

Raise the print head with a syringe and start to pressure on the syringe plunger. Watching as the washing liquid flows from the nozzle. Carefully remove our syringe with the washing liquid and insert into the nozzle the syringe by which you're pumped out the ink at the beginning. Once you pumped out the washing liquid it's necessary to insert a syringe with the washing liquid once again and pressure on the syringe plunger. It's necessary to do few times until the "wall" will not to be flat.

As a result you should get the flat "wall" on each of the four colors. Once you're sure that you're completely clean all colours, you need to pumped out all the washing liquid from the print head. Also you need to watch for the board into the print head and make sure it will not get wet (Figure 32).

Don't insert the print head with a wet board. It can lead to burning the print head, if your board get wet it's necessary to dry the board. This is usually done with the hairdryer.

You need to wipe the print head with clean and dry cloth, also you need to wipe contact point on the ribbon cable, that connects to the print head (Figure 33).

Another step is completed. Our next step - assemble the printer.


If your ribbon cable get wet your transistors and the fuse can burn. You can see the details in this article - Epson doesn't recognize cartridge.


Assemble the printer.


Connect the ribbon cable with your print head. (Figure 34)

Turn on the printer. Do the two head print cleaning and print the nozzle test. If some nozzles doesn't print well, perhaps you don't fully cleaned it and there was no "wall". Or maybe there's an air in your print head, in this case you need to wait for about 2 or 4 hours until the air left your printer.
