Epson 2200 printer ink pads

I just purchased a used Espon 2200. Seemed packed well. Set it up, turned it on, all the lights are flashing and it won't print. Contacted Epson support and they said "The error condition that you are experiencing is the INK PADS." Is replacing the ink pads something I can do on my own? Where can I purchase the ink pads?

Espon DX7400 Tried to use non Epson cartridges that wouldnt work, so now purchased Epson cartridges which the computer does not recognise. Is the printer Kerput or can I do something. Annab


After I did the same thing, I had to ruin at least 1 complete set, with cleaning and cleaning etc.,,, but it started to run ok on the second set.

I wouldn’t waste too much ink on it. Printers are always on sale…..pls read below and if you find this information helpful, pls rate me...

Remember...............ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill 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. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

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

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Espon cx5000 printing problem


Try to reinstall your printer.

Check if you have installed the ink cartridge properly.

Clean your print head.

Make sure you are installing a original Epson ink cartridge and not just a refill ink.

ESPON Stylus Photo R200 Ink Status Problem


Hi,

The epson like many other brands actually uses a small amount of the coloured ink in order to give the black print a more polished look.

You must use your printers properties page to set printing mode to Greyscale if you don't want it to use the colours.

To do this go into your control panel, open the printers icon, and select your printer, right-click on it and select Properties from the grey menu.

You will have to look through the pages and find the setting or check box for Grayscale. When you find it, select it, then click ok at the bottom of the page. This will stop the printer from using coloured inks to tone the black print.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Epson C66 red light stays on for ink


The first time you install ink cartridges, the printer must charge its print head for about 90 seconds. Wait until charging finishes (the green power.jpg power light stops flashing) before you turn off the printer, or

it may charge improperly and use excess ink the next time you turn it on. If the printer stops moving or making noise, but the green power.jpg power light is still flashing after 5 minutes, turn off the printer. If the light is still flashing when you turn it back on, contact Epson.
Turn off the printer, then make sure the ink cartridges are inserted completely and the ink cartridge cover is closed completely. Also make sure no packing material remains in the printer. Wait a moment, then turn the printer back on to clear the error.

USING OHP TRANSPARENCIES
