Epson C64 printing oddity

My Epson C64 will only print in pink. The real oddity is that when I print the test pattern,I only get the yellow & magenta lines--but on the left side, where the black should be. No black (and no cyan). Any ideas? Thanks!

Re: Epson C64 printing oddity

Are you sure that there is enough ink in tank? If there is then the head got clogged. You can try one thing open the printer head and soak it in Hydrogen Paroxide(It is available in Medical store) for one night. Then do the maitenace through software(Nozle Cleaning etc.). It will work. But in epson printer 4 times rechagre will almost drain the tank. so be ready to have another set of Ink tank.

When I Print the color Yellow, it's being printed as Pink.

I think you switched the ink stations. Try to switch the yellow and magenta. It also is a possibility that they are refilled with the wrong ink color. Place new ink cartridges and your problem is solved! (It can be that a few prints still show some pink color, because there is a residu of magenta in the yellow printhead)

Epson stylus c64 does not print in colour only black and cyan, no magenta or yellow but the ink levels are going very quickly on all. Where are they going?

I find by leaving the printer on stand -by it not use as much ink dont swich your priner off, because every time you swich in on it will star cleaning the heads on your printer and that will use lots of your ink up

I recently installed new black ink cartridge. Since doing so, the colors on anything printed are incorrect. For instance, anything red prints as pink. Anything deep yellow prints as a gold. MY...

Hi maryryherd - yes the C64 is in the list - don't know why you couldn't see it.

The inkjet colour system can be quite confusing. The colours in the cartridges are cyan, magenta and yellow, plus black. Other colours require a mixture of these basic ones. For example, to produce "red" requires a mixture of magenta and yellow. Your problem sounds like you are getting insufficient yellow, and maybe insufficient black.

Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select head clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Are all the 3 colour bands plus black printed OK. If not, try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing pretty well, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back with a new comment.

Epson Stylus R230 Light Magenta Not working

Print first a nozzle check pattern, self test which they say. Check your manual for your printer, it should be accessible from that if you dont have any manual, go to the epson website and download a manual. Usually the self test would go like this.

While the printer is turned off, you press and hold down the paper feed button, continue holding it down while turning on the printer. It will print the nozzle check pattern standalone. If you see all the colors then the issue your having is a color management issue, if you do not see the cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light magenta and light cyan from that test; then you will need to do 3 consecutive times of Head Cleaning from the maintenance program in your computer. If you have a windows xp it goes like this.

Click on start go to control panel - printers and faxes -
you right click on your printer icon and select printing prefrences. From there, go to maintenance tab and click head cleaning, go through that cycle 3 consecutive times and see if it improved. Good luck....
