epson 870 wont print

  richierich 08:56 07 Mar 2004

My printer has suddenly stopped putting any ink on page.
goes through the motion of printing but completely blank, not even a tiny spec.
I have tried new cartridges, numerous cleaning cycles. I find it unbelievable that every single nozzle is blocked, something else must be up. any ideas please

check your cables and driver i cant see them all being blocked either

Cables seem ok, reinstalled driver, even installed later XP driver (i am running XP) but still absolutely nothing coming out, even though the heads go back and forth as though printing. The printer is nearly 4 yrs old and has had good use so maybe its bon farewell, any other ideas please

You could try the the super head clean with this free program click here Failing that there are cleaning cartidges available, you might find it cheaper to buy a new Epson printer though.

thanks for programme details. It didnt fix problem but I will certainly keep it for using with my other printers, good utilities. You are right, a new printer is probably better value than messing around with cleaner cartridges that may or may not work.
