Question about Epson Stylus RX500 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Printing problem Hello, I am having a problem with my printer. Epson RX500. When I print the part where there is black or gray shadows in the a picture prints out bright yellow. The color blue is turning out to be a weird light purple. I thought at first it was a weird setting on my Photoshop program so I used a few different programs and they all printed exactly the same. I havent had this problem the whole time I had the printer, it seemed to happen right after I replaced the ink. Please help, I run a business and I cant keep printing things like this. Anything advice or help would be soo appreciated.

Perform several Head Cleaning cycles and do a Nozzle Check. If the nozzles are still clogged turn the printer off overnight to allow the ink to soften and then try cleaning again.

Epson Stylus RX500 problem: black no longer printing - have installed new cartridge, several nozzle checks, head cleaning, still no black. Any ideas?


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.:

IS THERE ABILITY TO PRINT BLACK INK ONLY WHEN OUT OF COLOR INK?


first go to your start menu. Then click on Printer and Faxes. When there right click on your printer and select Properties. When this window opens go to the General tab; then go to the Color tab. There you will see a box that you can check for printing in Gray Scale Only. Check this. After you have checked it, you can then check Black only.

If you wish for this to remain that way until you replace the other colors, be sure to click on APPLY or it will only print the first thing that way. After you have replaced the ink cartridges, use the same tabs to cancel the gray scale selection!

Roller Marks


Try this to clean the rollers:

Put in blank sheets of paper in then print out from microsoft word a blank document.

This should clean the rollers. Also, there might be special cleaning sheets that you can purchase from Epson.

Printer


No. It needs them all to present and with ink in. Otherwise it will do no printing.

Epson RX500 printing problems


Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing
