Just so, why is my Epson printer not printing when the ink is full?
If you have an Epson printer and your prints are coming out faint, incomplete, or streaked with lines, chances are you have a clogged nozzle–a common problem many users have with Epson printers. It's unavoidable that print heads clog over time as small amounts of ink residue dry up and collect in the nozzles.
Likewise, how do you unclog a print nozzle? Gently clean the print head with the moist cotton swab. Return the cartridge to the printer, turn the printer on and run the automatic cleaning utility. If the head is still clogged, continue to the next step. Fill a small bowl with enough glass cleaner to completely submerge the bottom portion of your ink cartridge.
One may also ask, why is my printer printing blank pages when it has ink?
Several factors may cause the product to print blank pages, such as print settings, low ink, or the product itself. Print a nozzle check pattern to see if any of the nozzles are clogged. Clean the print head, if necessary. Make sure the paper size, orientation, and layout settings in your printer software are correct.
Why is my printer not printing after changing cartridges?
Most ink cartridges ship with a small strip of protective tape covering the print nozzle. This tape blocks the nozzle to prevent ink from leaking out during storage or shipping. If you don't remove the tape, the cartridge won't be able to print. Remove the cartridge from the printer and look for the tape.
