How to Drill out Epson Inkjet Spigots with Micro Drill

Often the simple reason that you lose a complete colour channel on your inkjet printer is because the inkjet spigot that pierces the ink cartridge is blocked. Simply drill out the affected spigot with the correct size Micro Drill - purchase below...

Printer purge files are areas of a solid color (or a selection of colors) that can get clear a blocked printer without having to resort to printer cleaning cycles. For more severe blockages (where your nozzle check is missing in the same places each time), we recommend you carry out a combination of printing purge files (individual or complete depending on the color(s) that are missing) with cleaning the printer using the Magic Bullet cleaning fluid explained below. This combination means you are softening the ink that has dried inside your printer using the Magic Bullet fluid and then pushing the ink through using the purge file.
Please find below the complete Purge file for this printer as well as the individual purge files that you can download for printing.
