Question about Epson B382A PM 240 PictureMate Personal Photo Lab Mfr P/N B382A

Starting a Printer without the initial ink cartridge.

I bought this Epson 240 printer on Ebay. It is new but I did not get the Initial Photo Cartridge needed to initialize the Printer. Can anything be done to start the printer without this cartridge? I tried using a regular ink cartridge but nothing happened.

R 340 cartridges have remaining ink but printer


just go to the process of ink cartridge replacement without actually putting in new ink cartridges, sometimes printers make read errors, just make sure ink cartridges are placed properly to position.

Epson r390 printer prints blank(no text on paper)


Check condition of head first. Move head to parking position (head cleaning position). From outlet pipe of head cleaning mechanics, do suction. It's there is ink, the head is not clog (and the flow of ink is ok). Make nozzle check. If nothing lines appear, the problem is in board (cause you just reset). Using resetter, do initial setting. Good luck.

Why won't my CX9400F recognize Epson ink cartridges


The Epson CX9400F printer seems to require replacement of all the color ink cartridges, even if only the Black is empty.

I print almost exclusively in Black, but with my first change of Black, I was forced to change all the color. At the time I thought Epson did not provide completely filled color ink cartridges.

Just yesterday, I replaced Black and the printer complained it did not recognize the rest of color cartridges. So I replaced all the other color ink cartridges and now it works fine.

You might want to check out www.clickinks.com for cheaper, mail order alternatives which are Epson ink compatible, if you are not in a hurry.

Try unplugging the unit and then plugging it back in. When you first power it up, it should do an initial system check, which involves moving the print head. Unplug the unit the moment the print head is in a position to change the cartridge. I did this with my old Canon when I had the same problem and it worked. Hope it works for you too.

Epson Rx680 Photo all in one


Call Epson again and complain. This is a known defect on new machines shipped. I had the same problem and they sent me a new printer under warranty (same model) without any issues. The new one works perfectly.

Dell 962 Printer cartridge error 1203.


I posted this initial problem....and now, here's how I believe it works....but don't quote me!! Dell has some sort of electronic thingy on the top of the cartridge underneath the label. I pulled one off to try and refil it. Refil it I did....but the printer was having none of it saying that I was out of ink. So...that is when I bought brand new fresh cartridges from Dell. As of my initial posting - I couldn't get the new colour cartridge to work ... so emailed Dell who said it was a faulty cartridge and sent another one the next day....it worked perfectly. THEREFORE.....I summise...that once you buy a Dell printer....you are buggered - basically. You have to buy direct from them. I have gone on ebay and other shops..and bought refilled ones...buy they either don't work...or the quality is rubbish. Subsequent printers that I have bought - or will buy...will be anything other than Dell! Sorry if that doesn't sound very positive...likewise if anyone does find a way rough this.....let me know....as lumbered with this printer now till it totally breaks down....then can buy a new one (not Dell!)
