Epson Epson Stylus Color 740

Epson 740 will only print pages of rectangles

My Epson Stylus Color 740 is quite old, but has behaved pretty well over the years, now it will only print solid pages of rectangles instead of text. I have tried to deleting all docs and shutting it and my computer down. Still keeps on with solid pages of rectangles... What's happening?
When this happens the coloured blocks are usually being printed on top of the output that you are expecting.

The head has probably failed, and the only solution would be to have the head replaced.

The pages are Black only, no colours - lovely clean prints of LLLLLLLLLLL for the whole page... - Anonymous
i would check the flat cable leading to the print head as well. one of them tends to wear out after rubbing against the guiding frame for sometimes.
