BLACK INK NOT WORKING


Black ink head clogged/cartridge empty. Go to Printer Utility and do a Nozzle Check, Print a Pattern. If Black pattern lines are missing/broken then do another cleaning. Don't forget to try a new cartridge if the cleanings do not work. Refurbished Epson printers are great and can be purchased at www.epson.com/clearance. I have used them for 15 years.

Epson stylus d45 prints purple images the yellow ink wnt come out


You have done most of the required DIY but I feel that two more things can be tried out. First of all you can reinstall after removing the sofware from your PC. there after connect the C45 and try to see if the fault changes. If not we have to suspect the head and since you had tried the maintenance and head cleaning which is inbuild in this model . You will have to think of the cost of an head assembly to the cost of a new model of epson. If not try to use it printiing all your documents till the ink runs out and decide. Hope my advice helps. Good day

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.

Only black and blue will print on test page; yellow and magenta does not. Ink was just replaced.


Did yellow and magenta print OK before the previous cartridges ran out? If so, it looks like your new cartridges are not working properly. Try another yellow and magenta cartridge - you can re-use the previous cartridges if they turn out not to be faulty. If new cartridges don't solve the problem, you can try soaking the print head, in case you have nozzles blocked with dried ink for some reason.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves out of its parking position, pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head by hand fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Do not turn the printer on at any stage in this process. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then turn the printer on and try a head clean/nozzle check again. If you get any magenta/yellow ink on the nozzle check, then there is hope! Repeat the head clean/nozzle check process 2 or 3 times, but not more. Leave for 24 hours for any air bubbles to disperse. If nothing, repeat the soak process once more. If still nothing, post a new comment detailing what you have done and the results.

Epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

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.
