Printer heads

Snaps (Elite) posted this on Tuesday, 11th June 2019, 00:22

I've got an Epson XP-245
Not had it for that long and the other day it starts printing very indistinctly.
Okay heads need cleaning and the cartridges are a bit low so a couple of cleans and replace the cartridges.
Just kept getting more indistinct until now there's absolutely nothing on black at all.
Does anyone have any suggestions for cleaning the heads that doesn't involve using the cartridges? Solvent, swabs, that kind of thing.

Surgical spirit and cotton wool buds is what I used last time on my trusty old Epson. But the act of moving the head across to remove the cartridges forces an ink cycle when you've finished.

We will pay the price but we will not count the cost..
