EPS-5010 • Head Cleaning Epson Inkjets

***Always read the Epson printer user guide or contact Epson for tech support with any Epson product or software.***

Head Cleaning using the Epson software:



Macs computers use a separate software called Epson Printer Utility supplied on your Epson cd or installed along with your print driver. Located in your Application folder.


1. Windows users will find this software in their Epson Printer Driver. From the Control Panel open the Print and Fax control panel feature and "right click" the Epson Stylus driver and choose Properties.

3. Click "Printing Preferences" and then select the "Maintenance" or "Utility" tab.

4. Choose Nozzle check then Head Cleaning if needed.

Remember, inkjets use ink for everything, head cleanings use ink and lots of head cleanings use lots of ink. If your printer is so clogged consider purchasing some cleaning fluids or if the printer is a low cost item purchase a new printer that can give you a fresh start on proper maintenance.
