To prevent clogging/ blockage of Print Head Nozzles on EPSON Inkjet Printers and All-in-Ones, always ensure when the Printer/All-in-One is not-in-use/ powered ‘Off’ the Print Head Carriage Unit (the black box which holds the Color & Black Cartridges) is in its ‘Home Position’ on the extreme right side of the unit. In the Home Position the Nozzles are capped and prevent drying of Ink on the Nozzles.
To prevent clogging/ blockage of Print Head Nozzles on EPSON Inkjet Printers and All-in-Ones, take Prints regularly; at least twice a Week. Printing regularly helps in the free flow of Ink and does not let the Inks dry/ thicken within the Print Head and on the Nozzles. This is particularly relevant for Users of Compatible Ink Cartridges.
Epson Inkjet Printer Users can SAVE on TEXT Printing Costs by using Compatible Ink Cartridges, instead of Originals/Refills. Available at ~15% of the cost of Originals, these provide TEXT Prints in equivalent Quality & Quantity. However, these Cartridges are not recommended for printing High Quality Photographs, as the Print Quality will be Inferior, Photos will Fade Sooner & shall have a lesser Storage Life.
