    I am having the same problem with the light cyan ink cartridge. Epson gave me a number for a repair center and the gentleman there said it was a problem with the chip inside the ink cartridge slot. That the part was only about fifteen dollars, but the labor was going to be over three hundred to replace! Anyone been through this and have a better suggestion?

Try to deep clean
if that doesn't work try about 50 normal cleans
If that doesn't work leave it over again and repeat the above
If that doesn't work buy new cartridges, sometimes newer ones help Epson profit more.
If the above all the above doesn't work, try it all again the once more.
Next if all the above doesn't work take out a sledge hammer and buy a Canon printer.
The fact that epson doesn't allow you to clean only a single colur shows they are only interested in profiting your wasted ink!!

IN REGARDS TOT HE PROBLEM LISTED ABOVE
try dabbing the pause buton quickly I read that elsewhere,,,,,,
I just started mine to try this but now I have a service error! a lot of good now1

How do i reset the ink cartridges in my epson stylus pro 4800


You can get a chip resetter from any of the places that sell refillable cartridges as I did. Works great. They generally sell for about 10 bucks or come with a complete set of the refillable cartridges. This device will also reset the chip on the waste tank so you won't need to go through the button pushing sequence found in the field service guide - that's the one that Epson doesn't want you to know about or have.

WHEN PRINTING FROM CS3 ILLUSTRATOR DIRECTLY TO OUR EPSON 4800, OUR EDGES SEEM TO BE SLIGHTLY JAGGED, AND NOT SHARP LIKE IT USED TO BE WITH FAST FILMS - ANY FIX?


Try reducing the amount of ink coverage. For instance, instead of using Rich Black (60/60/60/100) try using True Black (0/0/0/100).

Have you changed print materials lately? The amount of ink coverage could be causing the edges of your material to roll up and prevent the the ink from being sprayed properly.

Epson 4800 bad quality printing


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges? I have an epson 4800.

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson 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. 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. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Epson 4800 won't initialize after changing black cartridge


Did you change from matte black to photo black? Or vice versa? If so you have to use the ink conversion kit that came with your printer and draw out the old ink and install the new black in cartridge. Try page 113 in your owners manual. I am having a similar problem but with the light cyan and it says "set ink cartridge".
