Re: Printer does not print after change of Printerhead

Put the original printhead back in and test. If the original printhead prints even with missing elements then the new printhead may be bad.

My esp 3 kodak printer now has a printerhead problem after a year of use. When the printer does it's power up check I get a error with the ink cartridges indicator light lit up. When I remove the ink...

Your printer needs a service, in other words the waste ink sponges need to be cleaned and dried. They then need to be replaced and the printer reassembled. Then the Epson counter resetting software needs to be installed.

With this software the printer can be set to zero, it will work perfectly after this bit of attention.
It is a good printer, it's nothing that can't be repaired.

A computer technician will be more than happy to service your printer for you.

All the best!

The red prints just under the blue, everytime you print blue, creating a shadow. if you print red only, the letters look as if they are out of alignment.

Just align your printerhead by clicking the maintenance on the printer then click the printerhead alignment and follow the steps of how to complet the process.

Will not print---all I get is a blank paper

Try to check the ink of your printer that they have more ink inside. Or els just check the printerhead of that printer its maybe that was a problem for that. If they could not print at all after this solution just change your printerhead it is because that was the problem. If your printer are using the built-in printerheat from the cartridge just replace the cartridge of what color are did not print but if your using separate printerhead of your cartridge just only replace the printerhead only.

MP 730 Printer alert flashing "wrong cartridge"

I had the same problem. I removed the cartridges and then the printerhead. I cleaned the printerhead with a piece of cloth and then replaced it and then the cartridges. This seems to have fixed the "wrong cartridge" problem for now. I was told by a friend that if the problem persits, replacing the printerhead may be a more permanent solution, but no guarantee.

Datamax M-4206 printing too slow


The way you can do this is to use Datamax fonts in your LabelMatrix program instead of truetype fonts like arial or times new roman. After making this change, do a test print and see if print improves. Another possible solution is use USB instead of Parallel cable (if you're not using it already).
