  6. Select Start to clean the print head. The  power light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on when the cleaning cycle is finished. When the cleaning cycle is finished, you see a message on the screen.
    Never turn off the product or open the printer cover during a cleaning cycle or you may not be able to print.

If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head up to 3 times, turn off the product and wait at least 6 hours without printing. Then try cleaning the print head again. If quality still does not improve, run a Power Cleaning. If there is still no improvement, contact Epson support.
