    My problem is the blue cartridge. I have gone through the checklist offered on the printer and changed the ink cartridge. No luck. It still won't print the blue ink.

Simply a blocked head.

Make sure you've removed the yellow tear-off strip on the cartridge otherwise ink can't flow into the print head.

Carry out 4 head cleans but cancel the nozzle check pattern by clicking [Finish] after each clean until the 4 cleans are done then allow the nozzle check pattern, it should be now be perfect or at least improved. If not perfect do it again as above.

Any further problems, use our help pages on our website linked from the Epson page and various others:

If you don't know how to clean the heads or prime the heads, again refer to our website on the link above, there'll be step by step guides with pictures to help.

I hope this helps.

Magneta Color (Toner) and when I print, the Magneta color does not print. Even on supplies status page, the yellow color section at the bottom is blank where the yellow color should be printed. How c

The Magenta or RED toner cartridge should be removed and double check that you have indeed removed the pull tab located on the side of the cartridge which will remove the sealing tape off the new toner cartridge.
The YELLOW toner cartridge on the other hand if it is not new then it is perhaps empty and needs to be replaced. Another option is to remove the YELLOW toner cartridge from the machine, Tap it and shake it side to side to loosen the toner that is in it, and replace it back into the machine, this will usually make it start to work again!
Good Luck!

Epson s20 printer ink not recognised

All printers are being manufactured using chip recognition software. They make lots of money selling you ink. Here's the solution: Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

Ink cartridge error

Get a new magenta cart, but make sure you buy a genuine one, not a compatible. The chip on the cart in question may be faulty (approx 30% of compatibles can be faulty).

If the error does not go when a genuine cart is installed you may have a faulty main board or carriage.
