    I have exactly the same problem , my C66 will not print Red, it prints yellow instead, I am using recycled cartridges and the original Epson cartridges do print red correctly however at 6 x the price they should do!

    I would appreciate any ideas but i have learnt to live with it and most of my printing is black and white, and I am actualy a bit colour blind anyway!

    My printer is an Epson workforce 600 and until I changed my cartridges everything printed normally, but now what should be red is printing yellow. There is also a bit of a green tint on everything.

    Just to clarify matters, if you prepare a picture that just consists of a square of solid MAGENTA colour and you print it, it comes out as a yellow square? I ask this because if you are printing a RED square, this takes both magenta and yellow to produce. So if magenta is simply not printing (e.g. nozzles blocked) you will get a yellow square instead of red. Pleas erespond and we can soon get to the bottom of this

Without the benefit of a response from any of rickyostrom, liusgarciaca, or hotdog233311, I think we can say the problem lies with the fact that your magenta cartridge isn't printing. You can confirm this by carrying out a nozzle check print.

If any of you would like further assistance in restoring your magenta to working condition, please do a new post to this effect.

One of my cartridges does not work


Start out by running a "nozzle check" in the printer setup screens. If the cyan isn't printing a full pattern, then do a "clean" pass, up to 3 times. If three times doesn't fix the missing color pattern, it's possible that the cart is defective, and isn't flowing ink.

Red ink problem


red is the combination of Yellow and Magenta toner, try printing one of each independently, if either is printing correctly yellow and magenta you should be able to print red. good luck

Printing Yellow instead of Red


The colours in the 3 colour cartridges are cyan, magenta and yellow. If you want to print "red", this requires a mixture of magenta and yellow. Thus if only yellow is printed when you should be printing red, it means the magenta is not printing i.e. faulty/empty magenta cartridge or faulty/blocked magenta nozzles.

Please post a new comment if you wish for further help with this problem.
