Re: Output tape ink is fine in the X and Z mode, but . ....
I've never had an issue with printing only in certain modes. If the
feed button doesn't work either in certain modes, then I waould say you
have either a damaged mode switch (under the key), or a faulty
keyboard. If any liquid has been spilt on it, this sort of issue can

First try to print a print status report.
Here are the steps:
1.Push setup menu button, that would be the wrench icon.
2.Push the right button to navigate until you get to the Tools Menu
3.Tools Menu>Push button for Printer Status Report
This will give you the accurate ink levels on your printer. If it still shows low ink
based on the printer status report, you have to reseat the ink cartridge and make sure the orange tape
near the HP Logo on the ink cartridge has been peeled off.
If the report shows ink levels are fine, then that status report on the front panel is just a false report.
Try powering off your printer and powering it back on again. As long as you don't have print quality issues, you should be fine.
Solution: Install the print head and ink tanks correctly iP3000 / i560
Seat the print head
Below is the procedure for seating the print head and ink tanks:
Power on the printer.
Open the paper output tray and top cover.
Note: Gently open the paper output tray while holding it.
After confirming that the print head holder has moved to the center, open the inner cover.
Remove the orange tape securing the print head lock lever, and raise the print head lock lever.
Note: If the top cover is left open for more than 10 minutes, the print head holder will move to the right. If this occurs, close the top cover once and then re-open it.
Remove the print head from its package and remove the orange protective cap.
<1> Electrical Contacts and Print Head Face's Nozzle Area <2> Ink Supply Filters
Note: To avoid any damage, do not touch the print head face's nozzle area, electrical contacts, and ink supply filters. After removing the protective cap, set the print head into the print head holder immediately. Do not re-attach the protective cap after it has been removed.
Set the print head into the print head holder, and lower the print head lock lever until a click sound is made.
Next, install the ink tanks.
Remove the cyan ink tank (BCI-6C) from its package. Pull the orange tape in the direction of the arrow to remove the wrap film completely.
Note: Remove the orange tape completely. If the orange tape is not completely removed, it may interfere with printing.
<1> Removed correctly <2> Removed incorrectly
Hold the ink tank as shown in the image below. Twist the orange protective cap in the direction of the arrow, and remove it.
Note: Remove the protective cap while holding it, so that fingers will not be stained by the ink.
Insert the ink tank into the slot at the right end, and push down on the PUSH mark on top of the ink tank until a click sound is made. Install the other ink tanks in the same manner.
Close the inner cover and top cover.

Many times its not easy to seat the inker. Also these machines have 2 rubber type wheels that will harden if the inker is not changed often enough. Also some people use thermal paper in these machines and that is not good either. if you are using thermal paper try using standard 21/4" adding machine paper. The type wheels may also be filled with glonck. you also may have bad inker. if the are crumbly they wont work
Ran into the same problem. The problem is that the printer's paper sensor sees through the vellum and therefore doesn't think any paper moved into the print position. To use vellum, fold up 1/4" edge on a standard peice of print paper and place the leading edge of the vellum under the flap. Place the paper and vellum into the printer and print. The printer will pull in the paper and the vellum together. Make the paper fold tight and straight to prevent jamming. You will need to feed one sheet at a time. Also the Epson inks take a long time to dry on vellum. I let mine dry overnight.
I've never had an issue with printing only in certain modes. If the feed button doesn't work either in certain modes, then I waould say you have either a damaged mode switch (under the key), or a faulty keyboard. If any liquid has been spilt on it, this sort of issue can arise.
