Printer Head Cleaning

We have had so many calls asking us how to get to the printer head cleaning utilities on an Epson printer that we thought it was worth adding some information on the site and that is the reason for this brief post.

We are embarrassed that when asked on a Windows 8 or 8.1 operating system, we have no clue and we are having to play catch up and learn. We will offer more info on this shortly however, in the meantime there is a couple of links below to some articles by Epson on the subject that should help.
