Sounds like you may have a leak of a dark ink into the others. Remove all the ink carts and blot the area where they sit with tissue. If there is a lot of dark ink in the area, then this may suggest there ink leaking from the black cart and getting into the wicks of the other colours.

If the problem only occurs with the CD caddy in place, try an under head cleaning session to make sure the bottom of the head is not dragging on the surfaces.

Try to troubleshoot compatibilty. Right click the program icon of print cd then click troubleshoot compatibility, click try recommended settings, click start the program, click yes to run the program, if it works save the setting. If it doesn't work try to download print cd version compatible with windows 7.
Goodluck.

Most ink jet printers have a self cleaning you can do.
The fact that you're getting shades of green usually indicate that the red is not printing properly.

Self cleaning should take care of it

I CANNOT PRINT BLACK ON MY EPSON STYLUS PHOTO R200. All other colors print. I have replaced all the cartridges. This is my forth attempt at trying to contact you people. CAN YOU HELP ME?


this issue may have several causes:
1. make sure that you've removed the yellow ribbon from the top of the cartridge before installing it. it is there to keep the ink fresh before it's installed and has to be removed to enable the ink to flow into the print head. (not all epson cartridges have this ribbon though)
2. check all the settings in the printer driver or simply remove the current driver completely and reinstall the latest driver you can find on the epson site.
3. the black print head may be clogged. in this case, performing cleanings will help, possibly several cleanings are necessary
4. there may be a faulty connection between the printer's mainboard and the print head.
5.there may be an electronical problem with either the print head or the mainboard.

in the last two options it's better to let a professional technician look at it.

Can not print on to cds


I have R265 ... make sure the tray is set up in the corner and aligned properly. and check if perhaps there's a corner of the tray missing due to an accidental damage or something and the lases senses it's not there, which causes the printer to think it's not aligned right
