Question about Epson PictureMate InkJet Photo Printer
Trying to print pictures on this Picturemate printer but all are turning out with a green tint. Tried replacing the printer cartridge but still no help. What is wrong with this thing?
SOURCE: Epson RX500 printing problems
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)

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.
