Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
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.
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....

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.

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.

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.
