    i used CISS in my epson cx2900 for about 6 months. then, the yellow color stopped being detected. i changed back to genuine ink. no error detected in computer and maintenance programs.

    it mechanically prints like normal, BUT NO INK IS PUT INTO THE PAPER. meaning NO OUTPUT IS PRINTED IN THE PAPER.

    why is this so? any help pls? a million thanks in advance.

    My printer started skipping half lines and eventually stopped printing at all. It prints some black sort of faded in color. I replaced all the ink cartridges...still won't print. I forget how to access cleaning directions.

    Printer won't print...I think the inkwells may need to be cleaned and I don't know to do that. The ink is not getting through. I replaced all ink cartridges.

    The machine won't print. I tried cleaning the ink wells. Changed all the ink cartridges.

    now, all the lights are flashing in my epson cx2900 printer. i used SSCSERVE.EXE version 4.30. i clicked on all of the features there.

    i don't know which caused all lights to flash.

    also, my black ink is new, yet it says the black ink is empty.

If all light flashes and your CX2900 is converted to CIS might as well bring it back to where you bought your CIS. maybe they have the software for resetting the waste ink pad counter.
Note: SSCServe wont work...

Proably is the waste ink pad saturated and the only solutions is a adjustment program to reset the waste ink counter and it almost impossible to clean the head manually

Magenta ink not display

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.

My epson stylus t13 has color issue, it can print 'blue', when print blue it appear red. Please advice.

Have you tried doing maintenance for nozzles? You can press and hold ink button for 3-5 seconds and it will run a head cleaning cycle. Try it 3 times and re-print.
Keep me posted.

If an inkjet printer has not been used for some time and several print head cleaning has been done and it still does not print properly then the nozzles in the print head are blocked.
Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent nozzles blocking with dried ink.
You need to replace the print head to get the printer functioning again.
But these print heads are expensive to replace, it may be better to buy a better and a later model printer for not much more costs.

My printer won't print it sat for 6 months we put new ink in and it scans and goes through the actions but doesn't print ink

The problem with printers like Epson is that they cannoy stand without being used for that long. The print head that is largely responsible for print quality is built into the machine and the last ink that passed through 6 months ago is hardened inside. Dry several deep cleanings with nozzle checks inbetween. You may need to send it for manual print head cleaning with a printer technician.

Removing and cleaning Epson Printheads

I don't know how to remove the print head but if you want to clean it - check for mr.musculo solution from any market near you. Leave the print head in this solution (warmed at about 35 celsius) for several up to 24 hours.
