Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer

R300 will not print anything

I have a R300 that the ink is full of all colors. It processes like it's printing, but nothing is printed on the pages. Sometimes, it prints half a logo.

    Exactly same problem, I have attempted to solve every conceivable glitch, computer is 'talking to' the printer. Machine operates, rolls out blank paper, heads are clean, inks full, paper in tray, power on, what more can I say?

The document below will almost certainly help you get your print back. The most common cause of the loss of print is clogged print nozzles. The most common causes of blocked print nozzles are:

  • Leaving the printer with the head away from it's home position so the ink dries in the nozzles
  • Poor quality inks that get baked into the nozzles from the process of printing
  • Leaving a printer for long periods unused
  • Having the printer near sources of heat/warmth/draft
The following link is the process I have adopted after having great success with it on my first few attempts. I used to change print heads - which can be a laborious process, now I use the method provided in the document below - it saves me lots of time, and saves my customers money!

My printer will not print anything. I have a full cartridge of black ink, but low on the other colors. Will it not print with the colored ink out?


Assuming the test print page prints using the black ink, printers have a setting that allows you to select black and white printing. If you need further help you need to include the manufacturer and brand of the printer. If the test page doesn't print the black ink and Since you say you have a full black ink cartridge I would also check that you completely removed the plastic tab/sticker that covered the hole the the inks comes out of and that the ink cartridge is securly installed.

My HP C4780 PRINTER WILL PRINT A TEST PAGE BUT NOTHING ELSE. How do I get it to print?


Check the settings in Windows Print Manager.

Make sure that the paper quality matches what is in the printer. If set to glossy, minimal ink is deposited on the page. Also, check the print quality - draft quality provides a minimal amount of ink as well.

I have enough black ink to print a few pages in black, but the printer won't print. What do I do?


I had a Epson printer that would not print or even allow me to use the scanner because the colored ink was out. Even though I had full black ink, it still would not let me print until i replaced the colored ink.

Print Blank Pages not print by ink cartradge full


Here's a solution to your printer problem ;

Press the Ink button -> Test Print -> then choose Print Quality -> the printer will then go through and print a series of small squares in each of the four colors in the shape of parallelograms. If you see any gaps in parallelograms then you will be asked asked to clean the cartridge, do so. -> Just keep repeating process until there are no gaps

Then I did an Alignment check right after the cleaning through pretty much same process:
Press Ink button-> Test Print -> then choose Alignment-> and make sure the patterns match to the closest number

Have put new cartridges in and only prints yellow lines


Remove all cartridges, make sure any tape has been removed from over the nozzle. Ensure that everything has been installed properly, then use your printer (prompts on device, or in printer>control panel) to print some test pages, realign heads, etc.

Its not printing anything, I've had it for a couple years now, I just changed the ink after this happened, thinking it was out or gone bad... I've checked the new ink, making sure no plastic was in the...


Problem with printer main board. Usually, it's caused by short circuit at head. If you have experience in electrical circuit and soldering, check mounted fuse at main board. Check for f1 and f2 fuse. If the fuse is off, replace it. But you must check the head first. Find the reference in aicaxz solution for this condition. There are same condition as your printer, that resolved with this technique. But, if you don't have experience better take to epson service center.
Head cleaning is mechanical process, printing is electrical process.

Canon IP90 portable . No ink printing.


Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.

Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.

After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.

If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.
