Thank you very much for replying to my post. Yes, I used it the Piezoflush kit as instructed and it worked fine I believe.
After the cleaning, I was able to print off a few test sheets and ran two head cleaning cycles which got it almost perfect. I was excited.
But during the third cleaning, printer stopped, something popped up for a second from my Epson utilities screen saying something about incompatible or unrecognizable inks or something? I don't remember exactly.
And now after power up, it begins it's start up like usual, vivid magenta pops up on LCD with the dots moving to the right then...
Both (power and ink) lights begin blinking alternately. Red x on top of LCD "Error", below that it says Printer error. Turn power off and then turn on again. For details, see your documents. Nothing else on LCD panel except the error message.
I removed all the ink pads from under the printer too-yuck! I was hoping that would reset an ink sensor or something but no. Is there a sensor?
I replaced all new Epson ink cartridges since the initial error popped up. i was hoping that would take care of it it but no such luck. Everything is snug, lids shut. Just now, I removed all ink cartridges, started it up and same error message and blinking lights as before. I put all ink carts back in and still same message. I have reset ink counter using an inkreset software, and also I noticed when checking ink info it said status was fatal and my inks were unavailable.
Hope this info might help you figure this out. Not sure if I want to repair ($400 overhaul according to my epson tech) get another one these models or go one size up. Any suggestions? Thank you and thank you for this forum!
