Customer Question

My Epson 3640 is giving me a 0X97 error code. I am also experiencing "smudging" on about every third line when it does print. I've cleaned the heads. done everything I can possibly think of. When I went to check the alignment of the heads it gave me and error and told me to turn it on and off which I did. I tried to print a document and I got the 0X97 error.

Hi, I'm Sadique. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Did you try manually cleaning the printhead?

Expert:  Md. Sadique replied 1 year ago.

As of first step, let's try manually cleaning the printhead.
Take a paper towel and fold it into 4 turns and make it little thick. Then add little rubbing alcohol to it and then place it in the path of the printhead carriage. Then move the printhead carriage over it a few times.
