Ink jet printers are the bane of my existence! The last one I eventually took outside and smashed on the tiles! I enjoyed it thouroughly!
I probably shouldn’t do that!
I have an epson stylus ex3500 printer. It also has a scanner. I have printed about 5 documents on it. I have owned it for about 6 months. I lost the receipt and didn’t bother with the warranty stuff.
I tried to print a color document a few days ago, and the colors are not printing properly. I ran through all the self diagnostics, self cleaning, everything the manual told me to do;MANY times. I even bought new ink cartriges because I thought maybe the old ones were screwed from not using it much. I tried to take it apart but I can’t get at the “jets” under the ink cartriges.
It seems that if you don’t use these f-ing ink jet printers regularily they don’t work. I don’t need to use them regularily. I just want it to work when I need it to.
Any tips? Maybe the jets are plugged with solidified dried ink. Is there some way I can put something under there with some solvent or something and perform a self cleaning or something?
I bought it from 3C. :s It still scans and prints well in black.
I hate to buy another one only to have this happen again. This isn’t the first time. I gave one away and smashed the other one.
I have a bunch of color stuff I have to print off!
