Hello. Welcome to Just Answer, my name is***** allow me to assist you with your question today. I will do my very best to help you solve this problem.

Are you using genuine Epson cartridges? Or generic/refilled ones?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Generic and have been using them for months with no change in quality of prints
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Matter of fact when first few pictures came out a mess...I exchanged the cyan and light cyan cartridges to 2 new ones that were genuine , not generic refills.
Nothing changed.
Even when I printed black only .....everything had the blue gray tint

Any response??? Please
Expert:  John replied 1 year ago.

I apologize for the long delay. If you are getting the same results with the genuine cartridges, I am afraid the printhead is defective.

Please clean the printhead following this procedure ===> Cleaning the Print Head Epson E380 <=== Click Here

If that does not work, please try with a cleaning kit like this one ===> Epson Printhead Cleaner Kit <===

If no luck even after using the cleaning kit, then the printhead is defective, unfortunately, and it usually costs even more than a new printhead.
