Question about Epson Stylus C48 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I recently changed the colour cartridge and now the printer wont print colour. Black works - ish. I have troubleshooted and did everything recommended eg clean print heads, nozzles, align heads etc. Nothing has worked. I was going to try a new cartridge but now the bit where the cartridge sits won't come out - it sits to the far right of the roller but whatever I press it slides into the centre briefly then shoots back to the side where you cannot get at it.

Please see the online guide at:

http://support.epson-europe.com/onlineguides/en/sc48/refg/ref_g/

and click on Replacing Ink Cartridges. To change a cartridge before it is low or empty you must press the maintenance button AND the power button at the same time, or use the print utility.

If the new cartridge also fails to produce print, come back with a new comment for further help.

I have replaced all ink cartridges n black will not print n when I change it to colour it prints everything in pink


The color combinations (order?) of different printers are not the same. Make sure that you have the right cartridges for your printer.

Dell V305w Printer Alignment problem. Remove tape from cartridges or check troubleshooting. Press > to continue. Ink cartridges reset, tape removed, trays aligned. HELP!


In my case this happened with black cartridge out of ink, colour cartridge low; replaced black: had permanent alignment problem, though test print looked OK; wouldn't print black. Replaced colour cartridge, then it all worked OK, straightaway!

I have a hp 6500. It has started printing pink instead of black.


Either:
* printers mix in a bit of "colour" ink when you request BLACK,
so that the colour ink-jets do not dry-out. So, since your BLACK has become EMPTY, all you get is PINK,

or,

* some printers mix colours to produce BLACK-ish colour.
Check that your CYAN and YELLOW ink-cartridges have not gotten to be EMPTY.

How do i print in colour. My printer used to print everything from the colour cartridge. I changed the settings - i don't know how - so that all documents were printed from the black cartridge. now i can't...


You need to go to your printers and faxes. It should be in your control panel. Right click on the printer and click on properties. You should find printing preferences, from there you can set it on colour.

Epson sx200 printer, wont print black ink only


Many printers especially Photo ones also use colour even when printing Black. so you do need to replace the spent colour cartridge.

If you only need to print in black get a B&W printer not a colour one.

I keep getting cartridge error or it prints a blank page. There is no tape on the cartridge and they are installed properly. It prints sometimes but not all the time Printer keeps saying cartridge error


This has been just happening with me aswell - I just changed the colour cartridge with the black cartridge ran out but i kept it in as it told me to place one in. Trying to print out but black ink wont come - just blank pages - surely the colour cartridge can make black? However, if you have the colour cartridge and are on microsoft word or similar, change the colour of the writing to dark navy and it will print out documents.

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.

Colour printing


Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around. http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t103191,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck
