It doesn't matter whether the cartridges are full, but both cartridges need to have ink in order for the 1280 to work.

Epson Photo Stylus 1280 print heads do not work


The problem is the print head, The ink cartrige for this printer is just a little bottle of ink. What really causes problem in it IS THE CLOGGED HEAD. If you have skill to reach thepen of the head (part that touchs the paper) use a quill tip or rag soak on water and clean it. Or go to EPSON SITE AND ORDER A HEAD CLEANNER FLUID TO POUR INSIDE THE HEAD AND CLEAN IT.

I'm trying to resurrect an old Epson 1280 Photo Stylus. I've changed ink cartridges, and run the head cleaning/nozzle check utility numerous times, but nothing prints out on any test pages, nor on any...


It's time to "cut your losses"; either the electronics that tells the inkjets when to shoot ink is screwy, or the inkjets are totally plugged, despite the "cleaning" cycles.

Responsibly recycle the printer, and buy a new printer.
Maybe, try to find another Epson that accepts the same ink-cartridges that you recently inserted into the old printer.

Black lines on prints


Remove the cartridge.....
using a cotton bud clean the ink nozzle area on the cartridge for excess ink..take extra care not to damage the nozzles

... while at it take a piece of rag and try to clean the..service station area(this is where the cartridge goes to the side of the printer)for ink build ups....try to clean the rubbers that wipe the ink off the head as it runs across ..this is near the service station area clean well

it just requires cleaning..try to use little bit of cleaning solution that is available for that particular model..if not use bit of alcohol but do not use it on the cartridge itself ..make sure the alcohol is properly dried as not to damage the head

do reply if this helped

Ink not empty


You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website http://www.the-inkstore.co.uk . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing
