Question about Epson Stylus Photo R300 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

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 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.

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.

Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select head clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print.

If you have already done lots of head cleans with no result, are you sure you have good ink cartridges properly installed? The printer determines the amount of ink left in the cartridge by counting the number of ink "shots" when printing, head cleaning etc. This information is stored in the "chip" on the cartridge. Thus, it is not an actual measurement of the ink left, but an estimate calculated by subtracting the total shots from the original full ink quantity. This estimate can sometimes be grossly in error, usually due to a cartridge replacement not being carried out correctly. To eliminate this possibility, buy a new set of compatible cartridges on E-Bay - they're very cheap. You can always re-use the old ones later if it turns out they DO have ink in them.

If none of the above works, then you may have blocked print head nozzles. You can try soaking the print heads for 24 hours (or more), as follows. Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If you get any black ink on the nozzle check, then there is hope! Repeat the process until you get a full black nozzle check. If nothing, repeat the process once more.

If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

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.

Prints header and footer but nothing in between


Make sure that the carts are FULL, placed well and are secured!

press menu then start bk copy then fourtimes arrow-up-button.
machine will be in maintenance mode. press 7 then 6 then 4 then start bk copy. machine will initialize the carts and refresh ink in tubes and the ph. leave the maintenance mode when finished by pressing 9 then 9.

Run a quality test print.

If you still cant see any bk this might be because of generic ink which had clogged the bk channel. this cant be fixed anymore!
