Epson Expression ET-2550 EcoTank

Steven bought an Epson Eco Tank 2550 and it's starting to lose colors. Leo says that it sounds like the printer head is clogged. Epson Eco Tanks have specially coated heads to prevent clogging, but if he doesn't use his printer all the time, it will eventually clog up. That's why a laser printer is better for infrequent use. In the meantime, he can use the ink cleaning procedure several times, and then it will ask if he wants to do the thorough cleaning. It'll use a lot of ink, however, but that should solve it. If it doesn't, he'll need to call Epson.
