Question about Epson Stylus Color 740 InkJet Printer
The printer has worked great for 6 years and now it stopped printing black. The color ink works fine. The blinking light to indicate "out of ink" never goes on. I have changed the black cartridge "3" times with no success. Once I got it to print black when I changed the printer features to "Resolution: 1440 x 720 DPI Highest Quality." However, after 3 pages, the black began to fade again.
About drivers: When I ran this on OS 9, there were drivers. But on OS 10.3.9, you use the System Preferences and simply chose Epson 740 from the menu. So I am not sure if the driver is the problem or even how to re-install the driver. Any help would be appreciated. Thx.
Thank you Scott Ellin for your tip on connecting the Epson printer to another computer, that helped. I connected it to my OS 9 Mac and prompted the utility to clean the heads etc. Then I tried printing and both the black ink & the color ink worked. Then I connected back to the OS 10 Mac and it continued to work just fine. I'm not sure why this procedure worked, but it did. Thanks.
