Try cleaning the small tube that is located under the sponges. When it becomes clogged no ink will go to paper. Move ink cartridge cradle to the left,now pull out wiper sponges,clean them and flush out tube re-install sponges and do test page.

SOURCE: EPSON CX5500 SUCKS ink....

Epson printers will clean the head if the printer is not used for a long period say a week. The only option is to switch on the computer and printer and give a noozle test every 2 -3 days. This will stop the printer from doing a head cleaning which uses the following amount of Ink

Black 1/8

colour 1/16.

Thus if the head cleaning is done 4 times your black is half empty.

thus as the saying goes either you switch on the printer every day or loose the printer

I also had the same problem and now this is what I am doing, and now the cartridge is giving a good amount of prints that too image quality

regards

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: where do I find ink supply level on epson 2200 ink

Open the Epson Printer Utility, Click on the printer name if you have more than one printer then OK. Click on Epson Status Monitor at top. A dialog box will come up telling you if any ink needs to be replaced. Click on the OK button in this box and this will take you to another dialog box which will show you the amount of ink left for each color.

I have just replaced my ink cartridges, but now it wont print anything even though it makes the right noises. it whirs and takes the time it would to print something, but the page appears blank.


Hi, If you didn't used your inkjet printer for a long time the most common problem is that the nozzles of the print head are clogged with ink. The printing device consists of a print head and cartridges with ink. When you change the cartridges that does not mean you change the print head, like in some other models. Now you can choose the "head cleaning" option from the printer settings a couple of time. If this does not help you have two options - to get the device to service center or buy a new one. The second option is the cheaper one I suppose. And remember for inkjet printers you must print at least 1 page per week to keep head from clogging with ink. Hope this helps Alex

My EPSON Stylus Photo 1400 Ink Jet Printer is printing blank photos. The ink levels are fine, it's feeding photo paper fine, it's making the same noise as it does when it prints but the photos are...


Hi,

Your problems states that photos are being blank when trying to print it.
Please try these tips.

  • Make sure your printer is selected in the Print window or in the Macintosh Page Setup and Print windows.
  • The print head nozzles may need cleaning.
  • Make sure your printer software settings are set for the paper size you're using.

Hope this helps.

Installed a new HP black ink cartridge; the officejet 8500 pro will not print any black print. The color ink works okay.


First print a self test page on the printer and check if you have black print on it or not.

To do that Go to your printer :-

Press Setup button -->Go to print report-->hit ok--> use arrow keys and choose the self test page.--> hit ok.

If you have the self test page fine then try to make a black copy from the printer.

Put a black font printout on the scanner glass facing downwards. Press copy black

Check if you have the black ink working.

If yess then there is some thing on the system you are doing wrong. May be the printer properties needs to be set or some settings needs to be checked.

If no then try to clean he ink cartridge and try to align the cartridge on the printer.

To align Do this

Press setup-->use arror keys to navigate to tools -->and choose the option align cartridge or align printer.

If you do not find the option in the tools option try looking for it in the print report...

On the computer Go to printer under control panel and right click on the printer and go to print prefernces --> go to the TAB called colors and under color options -->choose print in greyscale--> and under that choose the Black only option. --> hit apply and then hit ok.

Now try printing..!

Let me know if any of these steps works....

Epson CX6400 Wont Print after being left on for a week.


I agree with Epson. Epson printers are very very hard to unclog. You can spend around $25 for a cleaning kit and *maybe* get it to work, or get a whole new printer that is faster and better quality for less than $100.

Printing Streaky


Most likely the printer has been sitting for along time not used or you have used cheap replacement ink. Epsons are notorious for clogging the jets with cheap ink. unfortunately replacing the ink cartridges will not help because the jets are seperate from them. If cleaning numerous times does not work your next best bet is to buy a cleaning ink cartridge for your model. otherwise youll need a new printhead or new printer. If your going to use cheap replacement cartridges stay away from epson.

Epson r350 printer does not print thick paper or inkjet paper


Hi, this printer is "clever" in that you don't adjust the thickness setting it does it itself.

It does this based on the paper type you set in the printer properties, see the table below for the different types of paper it will accept & the setting you need to use.

For this paper Select this paper type setting Plain paper, sheets Epson Premium Ink Jet Plain Paper Epson Bright White Ink Jet Paper plain papers Epson Ultra Glossy Photo Paper Epson Ultra Glossy Epson Premium Glossy Photo Paper Epson Premium Glossy Epson Premium Semigloss Photo Paper Epson Premium Semigloss Epson Glossy Photo Paper Epson Glossy Epson Matte Paper - Heavyweight Epson Double-Sided Matte Paper Epson Matte Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Cards Epson Photo Quality Ink Jet Epson Photo Stickers Epson Photo Stickers Envelopes Envelope
Hope this is of help.
