Maybe there's a problem with the magenta cartridge hole and it shoots out too much color. or, the regulator went dead. try replacing the cartridge.
if you have recently refilled it with ink and it wasn't genuine, it might be too wattery (not dense enough). in that case you might want to replace the cartrige anyway so to not get the new inx mixed with the old one and cause it to 'clodh' up (my english is bad ... to prevent the inks making small dense balls to fill up the hole of the cartridge)

My epson r230 is having a problem, the magenta color doesn't appear evenly during nozzle check and when i print picture it doesn't appear nice and clear please help me solve my problem. thank you!


I can't say for sure but it sounds like your print head is permanantly clogged. I avoid Epson because they have a permanent print head unlike Hewlet Packard HP printers. I think there is a solution kit you can buy that runs a solvent through the print heads to clean them out. Look for something like that as a replacement print head typically costs more than a new printer. Hope that helps, Take care.

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges? ????

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE
BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

Epson 1400 won't print blacks


Hi

Many problems regarding Ink with Epson relate to using cheap ink consumables. I recommend you buy original Epson black ink catridge. I know its more expensive but you should see the black ink clear.

Be sure to run head alignment and clean printer option first with the current black ink then replace with the new original Epson ink catridge

Thanks

try checking the pump assembly of the unit. if it is clogged, the printhead wont clean and theres a possiblility that you will not get a printout. also check the head cable to see if there are no cut traces.
