Clean the connectors on ink cartridges and printer with slightly damp lint-free cloth.

Try another cartidge. Was it a manufacture's original or refill?

When using the Maintenance software to do Nozzle checks etc, it is quite normal to have to carry out the cleaning/checking cycle five or six times before getting a good print. In my experience once is never enough.

I have RX620 So you should not be having Problems with a Later Printer yet

Thanks all the printer is 12 days to garrentee run out. Im going to buy an Epson set of inks to put in and retest. A set of Epson inks costs 60% of the cost of the printer @ £78. Head cleaning at 2 times takes nearly 20% of the ink in the cartridge Epsons responce to the prob. was clean the heads again! I guess the staff have shares in the company! troble its costing me more than I earn at the mo! Ill let you know how it proceeds thanks again.
