That's because the cartridges have been... how to say it.. stuffed.
If they haven't been used for a while ink sticks there and doesn't go away and messes up all the printing.
case 2 might be bad filling.
and case 3 is faulty settings in properties.

    What faulty settings in properties can be there?

  • Eaten Jul 26, 2013

    I haven't had a hand to hand experience with a lot of Epson printers but sometimes in settings there are color settings that affect printers, atleast in most printers that can print color.

  • Eaten Jul 26, 2013

    Also, I can suggest cleaning the cartridges from where the ink comes from with a hot and wet cotton, however do that really lightly and touch any area outside of the ink dropper.

  • Eaten Jul 26, 2013

    Don't touch** My bad, missed a don't

  • Subhranil Das Jul 26, 2013

    And what is the reaon for change in colours.. All prints come in pink and i full of blank spaces

  • Eaten Jul 26, 2013

    That's the reason, some colors are based on printing over it to mix and get purple for example, but that's a common issue across many inkjet printers - The toners are stuck in waste ink from where it all comes and it can't make the color to full. So, clean them as I told you and perform a head clean too, that's what I can suggest..

  • Eaten Jul 26, 2013

    Few of the colors can't put out any ink and that's how it happens, also shake the cartridges a bit but place your head under the ink-er so that it doesn't go all over the place.

SOURCE: Lexmark X1100 Series won't print in colour after cartridge refill

I have refilled my cartride many times. Sometimes the colour has not worked so I found that if I put the lower end in hot water and made sure all 3 colours came out in the water the printing then worked. It simply was clogged after refilling.

SOURCE: bought new ink, black not working

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......

I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Epsom TX550W Doesn't recognise replacement cartridges


Are they official cartridges? If not, are they direct replacements for the Epson versions of the cartridges: Epson T0732/T0732N/73N Epson T0733/T0733N/73N Epson T0734/T0734N/73N
If they are, have they been refilled or bought fresh? If they have been refilled, have they been re-programmed? Have you updated your printer firmware recently?

Coloured ink not registering


You can only refill those cartridges if you do it before the ink is empty. After that you need a new cartridge or a chip resetter to reset the chip on the cartridge so it will work again.

My printer wont print black colour on pics or word docs


Hi, sounds like a dodgy ink cartridge. I would purchase a new black cartridge and fit and try that. Refilling epson cartridges isn't a good idea, if you can't afford originals, but compats instead of refilling them. a good place to buy is www.choicestationery.com I've never had any problems with their carts.

My Xerox DocuPrint M750 printer will not print black text but will print colour


This is just a suggestion. I recently bought a Staples refilled cartridge and had to return it because it did not work. When returning it the Staples Rep said that 50% of the cartridges do not work and get returned. This was an astounding amount I told the rep. Means nothing to him but to you, you may need to return the black cartridge if it is or is not a refill and try it out again. Let me know if that works.
