The print head nozzles may be clogged. From the Utility section found in the Epson printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. A head cleaning and nozzle check should be performed as a cycle.

After printing a nozzle check, examine the printed dot pattern to see if there is any improvement. Each staggered horizontal and straight vertical line should be complete, with no gaps in the dot pattern. If there are gaps in the dot pattern, continue with another cycle. Perform up to four cycles if necessary.

    You can also turn the printer off and wait overnight this allows any dried ink to soften-and then try cleaning the print head again.

    Try replacing the ink cartridges, if nothing helps, your printer may require service and you should contact Epson technical support for further assistance.

  1. Make sure your printer software is not set to use black ink only.
  2. The print head nozzles may need cleaning; see Cleaning the Print Head for instructions.
  3. The ink cartridges may be old or low on ink. See Replacing an Ink Cartridge for details.
  4. Try turning off PhotoEnhance.
  5. Your printed colours can never exactly match your on-screen colours. However, you can use a colour management system to get as close as possible. Try using the ICM (Windows) or ColorSync (Macintosh) setting.

Are you using compatible cartridges? If so have you removed any tape that covers the vent hole if required. Many compatibles need to have a piece of tape removed. If you forget the ink cant get out as the air can't get in.

If it not a piece of tape and there are no flashing lights it could be that the nozzles are blocked or the wick has dried out.

You can do a manual cleaning using some kitchen paper and a little solvent and a small plastic bag.

The first thing we need to do is get the head away from its parking position. Switch on the machine and when the head has moved away from its park position, remove the power lead.

With the top of the machine open, you should be able to move the print head carriage by hand.

Look to the right where the head carriage is normally parked and you should see the pump cap area. It will be a black looking spongy pad covered in ink.

Now take a piece of kitchen paper and fold it over a couple times to make a pad approx 3"x1". Now lay this pad over the top of the pump cap and fold the left edge down toward the base of the machine as in image one (the tissue is the yellow bit in the image)

Now take a syringe or similar and put some solvent into it. The solvent I use is JR Ink Jet Cartridge flush as seen on ebay and the like. If you have any ammoniated window cleaner like Windex you can use this. Put the solvent onto the tissue making it quite damp, but not totally soaked.

Manually move the print head GENTLY back to its park position. The pump cap will try to raise up to meet the bottom of the print head as you move it back. Be careful no to force it or you may break something.

What we are trying to do is bring the solvent dampened pad into contact with the print head. Once located, leave the pad for 5 or 10 minutes whilst the solvent does its trick.

Now move the head away from park - again being gentle. You should now see the pad is a horrible black lump of mush. Pick it out and put it in the plastic bag ? where a glove or use tweezers or pliers.

Repeat the process again but this time let it to soak for just about 1 minute. You should now see the individual ink colours soaking into the pad. If the pad is still black, repeat the process a couple more times.

Once you have some evidence of the individual colours you can run a head clean via the driver or printer control panel.

Then print a nozzle check sheet and if all has gone according to plan you should have a full complement of lines.

This method is applicable ONLY for loss of a few lines on the nozzle check sheet. If you have loss of all the lines in a single or multiple colours, you need to investigate further. It is possible that the pump has failed, the pipes are clogged or something else is causing the problem.

If that does not sort it out, tru using a syringe to put a couple of drops of solvent onto the wick. Its the black plastic spike that stick up and goes into the bottom of the ink cart when it is installed. Put a cupole of drops in, put the cart back in and leave it fpr about 10 minutes. The re-try a head clean using the driver/status monitor.

There is another possibilty after this which relates to a hardware problem but this generaly causes a loss of all ink.

Hope this may help;

Regards,
VOTIT

First ensure it is not a cartridge problem, try a replacement.
It does not look like a print head problem, it can be a driver problem or a logic fault in the printer.
A faulty cartridge can result in printing weird colors. Try a replacement cartridge, possibly original, to ensure it is not a faulty cartridge.
When print heads are faulty you get bad results on all prints, I don't think it is the printhead.
You can try cleaning the printhead from Windows, and cleaning the metal cartridge sensor on the ink carriage with cotton and isopropyl alcohol. This is regular maintenance.
Test the printer on a different computer (even on a Windows system), using latest drivers, if printer does fine it is a driver problem.
If printer still does the same, then it is probably a fault in printer logic board, that controls the ink management.
Test on different computer first, can be a software issue.

Hi,

Additional inputs that may be of use to you:

  • verify black ink is Photo Black (Pk) and not Matt Black (Mk);
  • have you tried purging/flashing before replacing the black ink.
Additionally if you are considering a DIY (do-it yourself calibration and/or repairs), perhaps a field repair manual, or calibration procedure or part of the service manual may be of help to you. Here is an exploded diagram of an Epson 9600.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

"eske" provided a good link of the mannual, check that and you may see the steps and do a power cleanning of the printer.

Click here to open the mannual if you dont see the link.

Another major thing i would like to tell you is that if the black ink is finished than the printer will use other dark colours to print the text which is in Black.

So you need to make sure that the blck in is not dried to empty.

All you have to do is replace the cartridge. I used to get the same issue with my Canon MP220, especially when I havent used it for a while. Replacing the black cartridge with a new (original) cartridge will resolve the issue.

A print head is really necessary if you still want to ciontinue using this printer, so it will be your choice either to get a new print head or getting a new printer already. but you can find a cheap print head better get a printhead first because this printer will still work for you..

Hope that helps....

Once you have troubleshot the print heads and cleaning your only other option is repair/replacement, and being that printers are quite affordable these days it may be your best and most economical answer to replace it. If you have any questions or need any further assistance please let me know.

When trying to print try to select the option that prints using black cartridge only. Sometimes this happens when the colored inks are used to try to mimic the black color instead of the black cartridge printing black. Check if the cartridge still has ink or there are no caked ink on the cartridge or the head area

  1. Remove the cartridges, set them aside. If the rest of this takes very long, cover the outputs with tape.
  2. Remove the print head.
  3. Set it in a shallow dish and soak it for 5-10 mins in isopropyl rubbing alcohol.
  4. After it loosens up, use a Q-Tip swab and some alcohol and VERY CAREFULLY remove any gunked up ink on the head. Avoid touching the little slots too much, since they are VERY small and that is where the printing all happens. Mess them up and you will be buying a new print head (or a new printer).
  5. Once you think you've got it clean, dry it carefully. Use a bit of compressed air to help get it dry, but again, be careful.
  6. Replace the print head and reinsert the cartridges.

Do a full reset

Here are the steps:
  1. Disconnect powercord, Hold Down Power and Resume Buttons
  2. Connect the powercord and unit will turn on
  3. Release Power Button, then click it once
  4. Release both Power and Resume Buttons
  5. Green Power light will be on steady, amber Resume light went off
  6. Then at about 1 second intervals ... click Resume, click Resume, then click Power...In a few seconds Startup Cycle Machinations will occur and finish
  7. Do a Button Power off ... a Button Power on wont work ... unplug then replug power ... Button Power on. Do a test page again.

One other thing is you can try to use a new Cartridge, the genuine one.

Hope that helps!

No the cartridges are proper .its the problem of the head the holes are cracked little bit so you r not getting right colours.
get the new printer of hp as it will not have such head problems .because everytime you change the hp cartridges you get different head.your printer is very old.replace it investing in reparing the printer is not worth as it cannot be repaired.the spare head will cost you very much.that also without garantee it will be more risky.
thanks.
please do rate the solution.

    remove the head cables properly and connet it properly to the new head if you r replacing the head.if the head cables are damaged it will not work with new head also so take care while removing the old head.

Poor viewing quality


By poor color quality, do you mean that if you turn the color control all the way down, the black and white picture is more like black and red, green or blue - or do you have a good black and white image? If the B&W image is good, and the TV is an old (8+ years) one, maybe the mirror inside the set needs a good cleaning - especially if there are smokers in the room. If you have a B&W picture that is tinted, then you may have to go into a service menu to adjust it back to a better picture. Hard to guess the problem without more specific description of symptoms.

I have a 53 inch Sony Projection TV that is about 4 years old. The only service ever done to it was an inside dust cleaning by a technician maybe 3 years ago. The color started being more green over time...


Please count the blinks if it is a repeating pattern and post the model number. This is a relatively common problem, but the solution is dependent upon the model number.

daveT29 - I had my brightness cranked, too. The picture went dark and off-color after moving the TV from one corner of the living room to another.

After waiting for the TV repairman for about 4 weeks, I "fixed" it myself. Take the front panel off (4 screws, then a black panel) and blow out all the dust. I was afraid to use a swiffer duster because of the static electricity, so i just used with my mouth blowing powers.

Bad lamp?


If you have the owners manual look on page 64 and see what it says there about the light lighting up in the front of the unit. if you do not have the owners manual, you can get one for free here: http://tacpservice.toshiba.com/ConsumerProductSupport/Manuals/TV/2004/52-62HMX84_E_R1_093004.pdf
