Try turning off toner save in the menu if it has that option.

SOURCE: not printing

You need a new print head

SOURCE: Epson Cx6000

Sorry to say but after reading countless forums, visiting the epson web site, and talking to their tech support; they've screwed us. I've noticed that every epson CX series has countless ink cartridge misshaps, and none printing issues. First off I recommend you cut your losses now and don't buy anymore ink for it because it will not help, and I also recomend not ever buying Epson again. My CX6000 had brand new ink, the black never printed and after 2 nozzle checks my ink was very low or gone(so it says). I learned that the ink is not gone its a programming error with the chip on the side of the cartridge. Also I believe they have scammed us because phone tech support told me to take out and put back in the cartridges which "expends" the cartridge if you have seen that error and from Epson website itself says once you remove a cartridge it becomes expended or already use and the printer will reject using it. And their Epson repair stores charge 15$ just to look and see what the problem is then "fix" whatever it may be (probably something expensive). The thing is they F'd us and might as well get a new printer. best of luck to you.

SOURCE: Epson CX4800 cannot clean the print heads

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

SOURCE: Brother DPC-165C has 'Init Unable AF' error

Yup. I suspect the head has been removed from the unit. There are adjustments on some printers. It was assembled wrong. The grating noise is likely the auto cleaner. If it cannot go 'home' the unit will not initialize. Possibly the head detect sensor is broken or covered. If the head will not home (moves out and back more than once or slams home hard), 'Init Unable AF'. You may be able to order a service manual from Brother for this. A repair shop can order the manual as well. (I suspect you need a new print head as well. You might want to replace the printer) see tips on bubblejet printers.

Wont print. solid red ink light. wont display ink levels


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in 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 thanreplace the print head.

EPSON BX600 WONT PRINT.the trouble has occured since black was replaced.tests show colours but no black.


Remove the black cartridge and insert back into place, check out the cartridge removed from the print cartridge (where the ink comes out) should be moist, not wet black.if color print is likely to be clogged inkjet print head dry and requires a specialized intervention or replacement may involve cleaning the print head. If the cartridge is dry is not good means that the cartridge (cartridge happens when more time sitting unused in the packaging is damaged and allow contact with air.---replace cartdrige---

Hi, my Epson 2100 is printing with faint lines at regular intervals right across the page. I've done various alignment tests and cleaning tests but can't seem to clear the lines. Any advice much...


Are your alignment tests show good results? If they are, try head cleaning 3 consecutive times without printing nozzle checks. After 3 head cleanings do the nozzle check. If problem persists try printing at BEST PHOTO or whatever is the slowest print setting for your printer. Good luck!

Checking the Print Head Nozzles
If your printouts are faint or have gaps in them, some of the nozzles in the print
head may be clogged or ink may be running low in one or more of the ink
cartridges. Follow the steps below to check the print head nozzles.
1. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.
2. Turn off the NX100 Series.
3. Hold down the y Stop button as you press the P On button to turn the
NX100 Series back on. Hold down both buttons until the P On light begins
to flash, then release the buttons.
Cleaning the Print Head 21
4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines.
5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean. If there are gaps or the pattern is
faint, clean the print head as described in the next section.
Cleaning the Print Head
If print quality has declined and the nozzle check pattern indicates clogged
nozzles, you can clean the print head. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only
if necessary.
Note:
You cannot clean the print head if an ink cartridge is expended, and you may not be able
to clean it when a cartridge is low. You must replace the cartridge first (see page 23).
1. Make sure the NX100 Series is on and the B ink light is off.
2. Hold down the y Stop button for three seconds to start the cleaning cycle,
which lasts around one minute.
Caution:
Never turn off the NX100 Series during head cleaning or you may damage it.
3. When the P On light stops flashing, run a nozzle check (as described on
page 20) to verify that the print head is clean.
4. If there are still gaps or lines, or the test patterns are faint, run another
cleaning cycle and check the nozzles again.
Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head two times, turn off your
NX100 Series and wait at least six hours to let any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning
the print head again. If quality does not improve, one of the ink cartridges may need to
be replaced. If that doesn’t help, contact Epson as described on page 31.
If you do not use your NX100 Series often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least
once a month to maintain good print quality.
Good Luck and Please rate me.

Faint printing after cartridge change & head cleaning


How about nozzle check output? Is it perfect? No missing lines? Do head cleaning, wait for 30 minutes. Check nozzle again. If there are no difference betwen two output, you may need cleaning head manually.

My Epson Stylus Color 760 printer tells me there's still ink


If your ink was installed Feb. 2007, then most probably it got expired as you said you have done test prints but with faint samples.

It is advisable to install new and genuine epson ink cartridge.

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.

Wont print black but colors are fine,


Clean heads, clean heads, clean heads, etc. Then do the test print to see if the heads are open. I had similar problem with an Epson, had to clean the heads often, finally got to where the heads wouldn't clean so threw it away and bought another one (HP this time, the heads are included in the ink carts, haven't had to clean the heads at all.)

Printer cartridge problem


I have a 440 and have had the same problem. Of course, I have been using cartridges from Printpal, Inkgrabber, etc. that are not official Epson. I have found that it takes several cleanings and after the cartridge has been in the position for the ink to go down it will start. My last order from Printpal said to set all the cartridges in the position they are in when installed in the printer for several days prior to installation. Of course, every cleaning of the print head uses up more of your ink. You don't have much choice though.
