Printer not printing

  Rhuddlan 20:13 20 Jul 2004

When trying to print out an e mail, the sheets go through the printer and the cartridges move acroos the paper, but no ink is coming out of them, these are fairly new cartdiges, and this has only started happening over the past 10 mins, any ideas? Rhuddlan.

The ink is run out, carts dont hold a great deal of ink.


The print head is blocked, inkjet printers can play up it they are not used regularly.

run the printer through a print head cleaning cycle

And then do a nozzle check and test print.

They is plenty of ink left, I use the printer most days, it was fine this morning, i will try cleaning the nozzles and will report back, thanks, Rhuddlan.

What printer do you have? Is this problem only with email?

It's fine now after cleaning the nozzles, I have cleaned them twice this week already, don't usally, it's a Epson Stylus C42UX model and it has caused me nothing but problems lately, thanks for the help, Rhuddlan.
