Re: probelms printing with black ink

On my system when I select print I can go to the print settings and I have the option of selecting either color or black. Not sure if that helps.

What do I have to do if I want to use sublimation ink on Epson stylus photo 1290?Thanks

what you want is not possible. the Epson Stylus Photo 1290 does not use sublimation ink. it is strongly advised to only use genuine Epson ink to keep the print quality of your print head as high as possible.

Epson 1400 won't print blacks


Many problems regarding Ink with Epson relate to using cheap ink consumables. I recommend you buy original Epson black ink catridge. I know its more expensive but you should see the black ink clear.

Be sure to run head alignment and clean printer option first with the current black ink then replace with the new original Epson ink catridge

Black ink marks on prints from Epson R380!


I have been having this problem all day today and believe I resolved it. The photo paper is thicker (I'm using the Ultra Premium Photo Paper by Epson). I have an Epson 1280 photo printer. I opened the lid and moved the lever to adjust for paper thickness, and voila––no more black ink tracks down the one side. Since photo paper is thicker, this may be your problem as well. Check your manual and see if there's an adjustment for things such as printing envelopes and change the setting. Hope this works for you! I wasted about 6 sheets of paper until I thought to adjust for paper thickness. Please let me know!

Hi We have Epson stylus photo 1290 for sublimation printing, and it keeps printing black splodges in the middle of prints, not in the same place each time, and not on every print. I can print a couple of...

Have the printer to perform the ink nozzles. If you have a continuos ink system place it at the same level than the printer.
Good luck and merry christmas.
