Epson R1800 turns off when starting to print
Aug 31, 2010

I have an Epson R1800 that had heads so badly clogged that the nozzle check print was almost blank even after repeated cleanings. I pulled the head out and soaked it in 1/4" of water overnight. this brought the head back to about 80%. I repeated the process with Windex.

The printer turns on correctly but now when I do a nozzle check or print the head moves to the far left and the printer then turns off (green on light goes out).

Anyone got any ideas? Thanks
