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


Inkjet Printer Maintenance Utility software:

Basically, this is your printers first aid kit.

Epson supplies software to help you run "nozzle checks" and head cleanings when necessary. A Nozzle check is a small print that sprays ink from all nozzles showing any clogs. If there are clogs you can perform a head cleaning using the same software.

This utility loads onto your computer when you load the Epson printer software from the Epson CD. It can also be located for download on the Epson website.


Epson stores its utility in the Epson print driver. In your computer control panel for Print and Fax or Devices and printers locate your Epson Print driver and right click then choose Properties or Printer Properties. Click Printing Preferences and either the tab that says Utility or Maintenance. Here you will find all you need to take care of your printer.


On a Mac the Epson Utility is a stand alone application and its located in your main Application folder. Here you will find all you need to take care of your printer.
