HOW TO CLEAN YOUR WIPER
Epson Stylus Pro 7900, 9900, 11880
First of all quit worrying yourself. This is easy. If you’ve got a copy of the service manual handy I want you to do something for yourself, for today’s exercise anyway, lose it. Epson took the lazy man’s approach to writing that manual. If one part becomes accessible during the process of taking another completely unrelated piece apart, they include both processes together. It’s completely misleading. Go ahead and the read the manual page after page, line after line. You’ll see, they make you take half the machine apart just to clean the wiper.
THAT IS INSANE DON’T DO IT!
Turns out the best way to clean your 7900, 9900, and 11880 wiper blade is also the easiest way. Here’s what you need:
1 – distilled water (grocery store – $2)
2 – foam swabs (get FOAM not cotton. Pack of 50 at amazon – $12)
3 – there is no three. Told you this was easy.
Next step is finding the wiper blade. Once again the best way to do this is also the easiest way – watch my Wiper Exchange Video Tutorial.
The process is simple – start the printer up in service mode/release the head/click wiper exchange in the menu/remove the wiper/clean the wiper with distilled water and your foam swab/install the wiper and you’re done.
