Wish I could tell you why. I've had two well used Epsons, a 700 and a 1200 stop spitting ink and there have been several others report similar failures. Logically it is likely either a head or controller board failure, but I do not know how to diagnose which. I still have the dead 1200 in hopes that a repair may be possible. A head isn't too expensive but the controller board is. Has anyone with this type of failure had Epson repair the printer? If so can you comment? >So if ink can be squirted out during a cleaning cycle, why not while >printing? The head isn't squirting the ink out it is being sucked out by the vacuum pump.
