Maintaining Your Epson Stylus CX5800F
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head four or five times,
turn off the Epson Stylus CX5800F and wait overnight. This lets any dried ink
soften. Then try cleaning the print head again. If quality still does not improve, one
of the ink cartridges may be old or damaged and needs to be replaced. See
page 50 for details.
If you do not use your Epson Stylus CX5800F often, it is a good idea to print a few
pages at least once a month to maintain good print quality.
