Excellent! It worked!!!!

I didn't even remove any pads, just stuck a paper towel down inside the unit and dopped up as much ink as possible. I close the top and it now works.

Why doesn't Epson have this in their troubleshooting section, what an easy fix.

Thanks to all!!!!!!

I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Epson doesn't like Generic Cartridges.

Hello, In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, etc. These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

SOURCE: EPSON PICTUREMATE PRINTER WILL NOT ACCEPT 4GB

Here is a quote from the Epson website.

"These products were developed and released at a time when large capacity cards such as 2GB or 4GB SD cards were not commercially available or widely available. Therefore the printer and its memory card reader do not recognise larger capacity memory cards."

So you're stuck with it I'm afraid.

Replaced ink, nothing prints not even tests


there are two main areas of concern: A waste sponge2c905eb.jpg located just under the printhead, and which helps to park the printhead when you turn the power off, and the actual printhead itself. There are also two ribbon connectors that attach to the printhead assembly--and if one of them is not fully plugged in the exact symptoms you describe will occure.

To reach the waste sponge require the dis assembly of the upper half of the printer. I can knock it out is about 5 minutes now! I have used about 50 Q tips to soak up the ink, and manually clan the long rectangular sponge as well.

It you want I can send you pictures of my printer all torn down.

Printer is not printing clearly even with brand new cartridge


My PM 260 has been acting up by only printing only about 1" of the paper and then it will stop feeding the paper. It will eject the paper only if I exit from the computer or turn off the power on the printer and then turn it back to on. I already updated the driver (13488). Should I have it looked at by an Epson certified repair or just buy another one?

Epson PictureMate personal photo lab keeps giving me errors when trying to print 0002 and 005 or 0051


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
