I want my problem resolved for nothing I bought this machine Sept 2016, it is under warranty, I do not need to pay for that, I expected to be talking to a EPSON tech, not a third party profit machine. I am being ripped off.
Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I am going to put this rip off on FB and let everybody out there know that EPSON does not support their machines under warranty.
Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 14 days ago.

OKay, so theres a few things you can do to help this issue.


The first is a nozzle check.

Run a nozzle check to see if any of the print head nozzles are clogged.

Expert:  Quiksilver07070 replied 14 days ago.

Oh i didnt know you felt that way.

I will opt out then....and discontinue we are not affiliated with Epson.

I love to run a nozzle check, but EPSON did not provide the sofeware on their drivers disk.
