Reactivating Out-of-Service Printer
11 months ago

I own an Epson R1800 that was last used about 18 months ago.  We moved out of our old home and our furniture and other household goods went into a storage warehouse for 3 months while our new home was being completed.  When we moved into the new home, I hooked up the R1800 in my office but have not yet used it because Costco prints have satisfied my requirements for the last few months.

I realize that the ink in the system may have solidified during such a long period of idleness.  And that could be so serious as to have killed off my printer.  (Oh well, it is probably "obsolete" in terms of current printer technology anyway.)  I know that there is a built-in "clean print heads" function that would probably be part of any re-start process.

Any step-by-step hints about how I should proceed in an attempt to re-activate so that everything is done in the correct order?
