I have the Epson Stylus Pro 3880. Up till a few weeks ago all was well, the today, it decided not to print out the black areas of my shots. I've check the inks, the heads all is well. HELP

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

I installed new ink cartridges and they are not working. I have a blank page - except for a few blue items.

I had the same problem. I change the ink cartridge and i, also, clean the print head with no results. The printer is 1 year old, so i call the Kodak service department and they said the printer head is good for around 1 year. They know they have problems with this part so they ship me 1 new printer head for free and they will ship 1 new printer head every time it will stop to work for free.

I change the printer head and the super photo quality back like a new one.

How to reset the Canon MX850 Printer, after ink change and counter reset? After I had changed ink cartidge and reset ink counter, I was able to print without problem. But this was only for a few days. ...

One way is to hold the 'Stop/Reset' button for at least 5 seconds until the display shows a new message about ignoring the current ink condition. This does not reset the chip but it does allow you to continue printing with the refilled ink tanks.

Not printing

I can tell you all without a doubt in my mind you all have been using "cheaper" inks, wont matter a bit now if you put real brother ones in, it is too late the contaminated, incorrect ink type or particle size ink, is in the veins(ink tubes) of your printer and have reached the head which is now blocked. You cant fix blocked brother heads, and they are too expensive to replace.

You don't notice you stuffed your printer with dodgy ink till it is too late, sure they work sometimes, but what you find most of the time is that after a while about 1/8 of a cartridge of use, your new dodgy inks travel the veins until they inject poison into the head and stuff it forevermore.

Expect without a doubt in your mind any modern inkjet printer fitted with dodgy ink will not see 2 years old.

I see thousands of machines broken from block heads, the only old printers I've seen are uses of nothing but manufactures product.

I not selling you a machine, brand or supplies, just telling you how it is.

Refill and aftermarket ink will always cost not save you money.
unless you can find a supplier of such inks/toners to fix it free when it breaks from their supplies or guarantee you a refund of repair costs if found to be due to their product.

Even if you are out of warentee, HP will cover their cartridges from 2 years from the manufacture date which is listed on the cartridge itself. If you go through more than 2 cartridges that are the same (NOT REFILLED, NOT REMANUFACTURED) then HP will replace it. There is a microchip in the cartridge itself which registers it's been in a printer before and if that has happened and it's remanufactured or refilled It goes "HEY I"VE BEEN USED" and rejects. - It's not the printer, it's probably the cartridge. Remember, that printer is almost 4 years old, things are bound to go wrong with hardware too (dried up ink in system clogging ink paths is common in old printers)
