Printer on strike

  Trikie 11:09 09 Apr 2007

Epson Stylus Photo 890 is feeding paper through, the print head is going backwards and forwards, paper feeds through at the usual speed and there are no messages but the paper is totally blank.

Any ideas please?

Sorry to ask this but have you run out of ink?

New cartridge recently, no heavy print jobs and no "ink low (or out)" message.

Only message is the usual one showing the progress of the job, listing the number of pages done.

1. Do a print head clean cycle and retry.

2. Uninstall and reinstall the printer software and drivers and then retry.

Thanks Fruit Bat-thats done the trick. I didn't think of it as my previous experience of head cleaning has been when the print quality declines, not a sudden total failure
