Epson Epson Stylus Color 740

Epson Stylus 760

Hi guys

was about to have a sacrificial burning of my lovely printer in the back garden when I read this link:

like many of you I have had fun with changing cartridges on a few epson printers and was pleasently surprised when I read this. It refers to a 740 but mines a 760 so I just adapted what it said.

there is a spongey bit under where the print head parks - you have to clean this with something alcohol (or at least soapy) I wasnt going to use my best Jack Daniels so I used sumink called "sprint cleaner" and dabbed it till it looked semi clean. Then I saturated the sponge in my cleaning stuff and ran a few cleaning cycles
I am now covered in black ink and will be for the next week I think....But its works!!

wahooo
