    Blank Pages on Epson Inkjet L130 on Lubuntu 20.04

    I have installed printer drivers for Epson L130 tank printer from Epson site. Printer detected and connected. It seems to print the page with print head movement and print job runs successfully but output is blank pages only.

    lsusb output

    Code:
    Bus 002 Device 004: ID 04b8:007c Seiko Epson Corp. EPSON L130 Series
    The printer troubleshoot output is here

    Some details on what you mean by driver may also help, do you mean a PPD file?
    Does the test page print correctly?
    What program have you been trying to print from that results in blank pages?

    Thank you for your response. After multiple attempts at cleaning printer head. I am able to print black and blue. So its most probably dry head or something similar as it is a new printer.
    Marking as solved.

    The printers that use a tank system seem much more prone to this ink jet drying problem if you print very seldom, as I used to, so I moved to a printer where the jet is part of the cartridge itself.
    I accept thie is more expensive but I haven't had the problem since doing so and if anything print even less than I did in the past, perhaps only 1 page every two weeks.
