Epson workforce 545 is printing & coping blank

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.

We are going through ink like crazy on our Epson 600 Workforce fax. It's supposed to yield up to 500 copies, and we just replaced cartridge yesterday and it already says ink low. Can I change a setting...

just so you know, the # of copies are based at 5% coverage, so make sure that is whats happening. When you are telling the printer to print, in the printer drivers, you can select rough draft type printing where it will use less ink.

Also, make sure your not using generic ink.

Epson Stylus CX5000 blurry or smudged printing

epson uses pigmented ink and compatibles use dyes and thus if the paper is not of good quality then you can have this problem.

do the following

change the paper and try.

As there will be ink in the head and the ink feed tubes , print some 10 -15 copies of all color prints so that the original ink starts to get into the head and then the paper.

this should solve your problem

Also use your printer every 2 -3 days if you dont have any prints then give a noozle check and then switch off the printer. This will avoid the printer from doing a head clean very time you switch on the printer and also the ink will give you more output as there is less amount of head cleaning
