Epson Stylus D68 green photos

I have replaced all the ink Cartridges with Epson originals but all the pictures are coming out in a green hue.
I have gone through the nozzle cleaning wizard but it hasn't helped.
I don't think the Magenta is coming through as it is not showing on the nozzle test sheet.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus R230 Light Magenta Not working

Print first a nozzle check pattern, self test which they say. Check your manual for your printer, it should be accessible from that if you dont have any manual, go to the epson website and download a manual. Usually the self test would go like this.

While the printer is turned off, you press and hold down the paper feed button, continue holding it down while turning on the printer. It will print the nozzle check pattern standalone. If you see all the colors then the issue your having is a color management issue, if you do not see the cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light magenta and light cyan from that test; then you will need to do 3 consecutive times of Head Cleaning from the maintenance program in your computer. If you have a windows xp it goes like this.

Click on start go to control panel - printers and faxes -
you right click on your printer icon and select printing prefrences. From there, go to maintenance tab and click head cleaning, go through that cycle 3 consecutive times and see if it improved. Good luck....

SOURCE: Epson Stylus DX8400 empty ink cartridges but actually new

Sometimes there is a coating on the chips (even original epson ones!) - Old wives tales say dont touch the chips with your fingers - but take the carts out one by one and wipe your finger over the chips (1 finger for one chip - dont reuse the same finger on a different chip)

Reinstall them and that worked for me on a dx4500 with original epson carts in

SOURCE: Epson 9600 Magenta problems...

sounds like a problem with the damper/cleaning unit.

You need to clean the "pads" under where the print head parks.

Turn off power. open front cover. push it cutter (blue) and slide printhead to the left.

You will see a pad in there. this is the cleaning area. Remove and clean. Also next to this is a wiper. it is vertical and needs to be washed with some rubbing alcohol.

try these and get back to me.

SOURCE: Epson D68 red light on constantly, checked the ink

Remove and reinsert the cartridges - the cartridge lid may be open.

Also, the printer may need to be reset. From:

Select the Epson resetter, Save, unzip and run.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Epson Stylus SX400 "Ink cartridges cannot be recognized"

Try this: First check which cartridge(s) are not being recognized. In my case where I replaced all three color cartridges, two were recognized right away but one was not. You find out by sending a print request to the printer and looking at the ink cartridge levels diagram in the dialog window. In my case two of three were fine but one had a red X on it. So I removed it and cleaned the contacts with alcohol then rocked it in the slot after pressing it in. It was recognized and the charging process began as normal.

SOURCE: my epson nx400 getting message

Have you taken out the spacer between the cartridge and its locater handle? Else just try taking the cartridge out and re-inserting. If this fails have you tried powering the printer off, waiting 20 secs, and truning back on.

Hop this helps.

Green hue


I am not a printer expert, but since none of them have jumped on your question, I will try to help. I had a similar problem with my Dell awhile back and found out it was a problem with the paper. First, try printing a picture using plain copy paper and see if it has the green hue. If not I would think the printer and program are ok. Make sure you are printing on the glossy side of the photo paper(some of it is hard to tell the difference) and that your printer preferences are set for the correct type of paper you are using. Please reply to let me know what you find.

Tip

Reset Epson Color Printer Counter


Many Epson Printers that reach an End of Life counter number will lock your printer down and force you to contact a Service Center.

However, this is really not necessary in all cases. If your printer is still working fine for you but the counter has locked your printer:

My epson stylus 1400 is printing with a purple hue


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 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.:

I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

Hi my R1800 has 2 flashing red lights (top) and no power light. What can i do? MAria


Hi.
It could be your ink tray has overflowed.
There is software http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml which might help.

Install this program, set your printer model and the driver (Epson Stylus Photo R1800) when it starts up. Close the program, and it will minimize to the
tray on the taskbar - right click on the icon and goto "Protection Counter". Choose
"Reset Protection Counter". Choose "Yes" to the question about the waste ink pads,
then switch the printer off for 1 minute. This should cure the problem.


It might be worth a try

Ink not empty


You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

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
