I've just seen the post about a CX5200 pinting out blank pages but my printer problem is a little different.
I have an Epson RX420 printer/scanner jobbie that is about 18 months old. It's worked well but since I do very little printing, it's been tucked away gathering dust. I'm a lazy sod so I keep forgetting to run a print through it once in a while to keep the ink running, which is where my problem lies...
It's not been used properly for about four months. I took no chances and put in new ink cartridges but when it prints the tester sheet (you know, the one with the numbered lines), no matter what number I set it on. the lines just seem to get worse and worse. The black is also pretty thin and is just about nonexistent on a print out.
My question is this: can I clean the print heads with some kind of solution/cleaning cartridge without dismantling the whole unit? Also, would clogged print heads be the problems or would it be something else?
It was only a £99 printer when I bought it a few Christmas' ago, but the point is, it's hardly used and already looking like it'll have to go the way of the boot and be dumped.
Any help to get it up and running would be great.
