New black ink cartridge won't print correctly
It can take some time to get the ink through.
I would suggest do the head clean at least 3 times if you then do a nozzle check and notice improvement then you are on track.
If it does not improve then it has been standing to long and not good news, this I am not willing to be the barer off.
(printer may need to go to heaven)
Keep in mind head cleaning is an ink eater so only do as you need.
Let me know how it goes.

Epson stylus photo r320 ink pad relacement
Here's 3 things you can do to get around this...depending if your printer is new and still under warranty or not (do NOT void your warranty!).
I have used all 3, but the third one was a lifesaver (AND money-saver!). About once a year I have to reset the printer using #2, but other than that....#3 is the greatest!!!
1. Try resetting it by, unplugging the power cord then while holding down the POWER STOP and MAINTENANCE buttons simultaneously while replugging the power cord caused a reset to zero on the counter. You will still have to replace the pads or redirect the waste ink tube to a receptacle on the outside of the printer, hope this helps?
2. If you go to inkjetprinterhelp.us there you will find the ssc service utility. Once you open the page click on the service utility and then choose the english version unless you can spk russian.If you then scroll to the bottom of the page and install the prog. Once you have installed the prog you will get the ssc utility logo in your bottom tray. Right click the icon and then select reset protection counter from the protection counter drop down. Once you have done this restart your computer and this should reset the system.
3. INSTALL AN EXTERNAL WASTE TANK and forget all about those gunky ink pads forever!
On the left rear of these printers is a small trapdoor held by a single screw.
Remove it, look inside (down and to your left) and you'll see the waste ink tube.
The tube is free at one end, and with a suitably curved piece of wire you can hook it and wangle the end out through the opening (you may dislodge a small piece of plastic in the process -- just put it back where it was, it's only a vibration damper.) I found the tube to be rather short....so I added an extension since I do not have room directly behind my printer for a container. I used the tubing you use with oxygen tanks or fish tank bubblers. They also make a little plastic connector so you can join the two together.
At this point, you're almost there.
All you need now is a suitable container for the waste ink, and I drilled a small hole in the trapdoor cover so you can put it back on without pinching the tube (or you could just leave it off.)
The container is a small square one with a snap-on lid, approx. 60mm square and holding about 150ml -- they're sold in sets of three for a few cents and are for making ice-blocks etc. in your freezer. Any small container will work.
Make a hole in the lid (slightly larger than the tube to let air escape) insert the tube and forget about the internal pads forever.
I've had mine in place for almost 2 yrs now and it works like a charm. If you need photos, let me know and I have a couple I can send you.

EPSON SX445W PAPER JAMS
A friend had a similar problem, but I've now diagnosed and fixed it.
In this case the print head was not returning to its little 'nest' on the right. It turned out that the white plastic bits in tht nest were lifted up; when I pushed them down the print head could return home and it stopped saying paper-jam. By this time, I had the printer apart and I found a spring floating around loose, and a bit of black plastic that looked like a spring connection point that had broken off. It turned out to be one of the springs holding the 'nest' plastics in place. The bit of black plastic had broken off the base of the printer.
I melted a hole through from the inside with a fine soldering iron, then fitted a small bolt and nut of about the right length to stick up inside and hold the spring. I fitted the spring over the bolt and put a pair of nuts locked together on the end of the bolt and lock-nut to keep the spring in place.
It now works!
