Re: Re-installing a print head Epson 9600 - then no nozzle check

Why did you purge the system did you change to third party ink?

I may be wrong but as far as I know there is no way "cleaning cycles' are the proper way to get ink flowing all the way to, and into the nozzles again after a full purge of the system.

On the newer 7900 -9900 series you have to be able to reset the system board through a service program, to be able to initiate a fresh ink loading (charging the lines) cycle, as if the machine was new after completely draining the system.


Heres a manual for you printer

according to this page I beleve I was right and you have to initiate an "Initial ink charge" through the menus. of course this is dependant on the fact that you did not already do any damage to the head trying to just do cleanings..

Good luck hope this helps!
