My Epson 4900 completely quit printing cyan and then LLK went out completely also. Got full ink on both nozel cleaning and power nozel cleaning does nothing. Turning the machine off for a few days is likewise not helpful.

Epson will send someone out for $100 for travel and $175 per hour in labor. a new printhead is $1250 and by the time all would be said and done it would run over $2,000 which is $200 more than a new unit.

Anybody got any ideas?


Do not settle for mediocrity. Rather strive for excellence for even in that attempt lies a measure of success.
