I have Epson C45 printer, i just replaced both black and colored cartridge with new one and its printing but no print in my paper appears. I already clean and make print test but still same problem no...


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 R230 printing unwanted lines


The problem is waste ink around head sprayer (at (bottom plate of head). Turn of printer. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with hot water) at head cleaning mechanic pad. Move head to parking position. wait till 10 minutes. check it. You can repeat 3 times.

I just bought new ink and nothing prints clearly


If it hasn't printed anything for a couple of years then the print heads will be severely clogged with dried ink. Epson recommends printing a page or two every month to keep the heads clear. You need to try cleaning the print heads, its unlikely that one or two head cleans will clear a badly clogged nozzle. Try doing 4 or 5 head cleans, wait about 10 hours for the ink to soften and do another 3 or 4 cleans with a nozzle check after each. You should see a gradual improvement in the nozzle checks. If there is no improvement then you need a head cleaning solution such as this one:

Others are available just try googling "inkjet head cleaning".
Note that head cleaning uses between 5 and ten percent of your ink cart's, if any are low on ink, have some new ones ready.
If you need to know how to do head cleans & nozzle checks, the user guide can be downloaded from Epson here:

Epson dx5000 print heads


Have you tried pressing and holding the button that you use to re-fill theinkcartridges. Looks like an ink drop, under the ON button. I believe if you hold this for about three seconds, it cleans the heads. Good luck!

Epson stylus dx5000 to be used as a fax


I'd suggest unplugging the unit completely, and then removing the printer from the installed printers by uninstalling it (right-click on the printer icon and then DELETE), and then going through CONTROL PANEL -> ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS and remove all software related to the printer or EPSON. Then reboot.

Then download the updated software and driver package from:

http://esupport.epson-europe.com/ProductHome.aspx?lng=en-GB&data=lkuCfcvA9cwZFv9U002FAWw01BceF4s0u5BqhtAJNNMU002F2D8U003D&tc=6

...and follow instructions for a clean install and set up of the unit.

Uninstalling the old software and drivers and removing the printer is important to be certain the new installation will work without confusion.

Good luck...
