I refilled the ink tanks after they were expended, but my nozzle check pattern still prints with gaps. What should I do?

  • The ink tubes may need to be filled with ink. Flush the ink tubes as instructed below.

    Power Cleaning Using the Product Control Panel

    You can run a Power Cleaning using the control panel on your product.

    Note: After a Power Cleaning, you must turn off the product and wait at least 12 hours before running another Power Cleaning.

    1. Visually check the ink levels and make sure each ink tank is at least one-third full.

      Caution:
      If you run a Power Cleaning when the ink levels are low, you may damage the product.

    2. Press the  home button, if necessary.
    3. Select Maintenance > Power Cleaning.
    4. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the Power Cleaning. A confirmation screen is displayed when Power Cleaning is complete.
    5. Select OK on the confirmation screen and then run a nozzle check.
    If the print quality did not improve, turn off the printer and wait at least 12 hours before running another nozzle check. Run Print Head Cleaning or Power Cleaning depending on the printed pattern.

    If the print quality does not improve after running the Power Cleaning utility multiple times, contact Epson for support.
