Question about Epson Stylus Photo R1800 InkJet Printer
I noticed that I was missing a color in a print out so I went to the epson printer utility to clean and run a nozzle check, it kicks out one page immediately and then prints another one but all it prints is FG0853 QP101589.
I unplugged it for 10 seconds and then restarted...still the same. When I go in to check ink levels it is blank. I just updated the operating system security, could this be causing the problem?
Sounds like a printer driver problem. Uninstall and reinstall driver and that should fix that.
Thanks for using fixya!

Tips for a great answer:
ink reservoir doesnt have to be completely empty to fail. Replace the
cartridges. Some of the jets or all of them may be clogged especially if you
have not used your printer in a while. If there are cleaning instructions in
the manual clean the jets and then try to print from the printer's self test
