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.

    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.

      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. You see a screen like this:
    4. Select Power Cleaning.
    5. Follow the on-screen instructions to run the Power Cleaning.

      Note: If you cannot run this feature, solve the problems that are displayed on the screen and run Power Cleaning again.

    6. When the Power Cleaning is finished, run a nozzle check. If print quality has not improved after running Power Cleaning, wait at least 12 hours without printing, and then print the nozzle check pattern again. Run Print Head Cleaning or Power Cleaning again depending on the printed pattern. If quality still does not improve, contact Epson support.
