All colours except the black appear to be printing on my Epson C64 InkJet printer. What could be the problem?


On this printer, the black colour is a separate cartridge.

It is possible that is has run out of ink or maybe is blocked in some way.

Try removing the black cartridge and hold it up to a bright light to check the ink level.

Make sure the contacts where the ink flows out are clean and not blocked with dirt.

If there is plenty of ink but it still won't print then try a new black cartridge.

Please rate my answer if you find this helpful.

Many thanks,

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 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.
