My printer stylus cx8300 only prints a black nozzle check report. - printer brand new lying in garage, - was used extensively several years back, cartridges brand new.


Epson printers have a long history of clogged nozzles. After years, they may be so clogged that it will require replacement of the print head, and that likely would cost more than a new printer.

You can use Sainsbury Bathroom cleaner which is very good.

Process to clean your printer which is the main reason for wastage of ink :

  • Turn on printer - head moves across
  • Pull power cord so the head is left 'unparked'
  • Spray cleaner onto the parking pads
  • Carefully soak up spray with kitchen roll
  • Repeat if there was a lot of dried up ink on the pads
  • Spray again - leave the pad soaked with the cleaner
  • Turn printer on, let head return.
  • Switch printer off with it's own power button
  • Wait overnight :-)
You can get cartridges full of cleaning solution but I prefer to get an old empty cartridge and add a few cc of isopropanol to it through the vent tube (this is a fiddly operation and needs a syringe). This cartridge now has very dilute ink/solvent in it. Run some test prints and see if the clogs go away. The very dilute ink and solvent is much easier to see on paper than pure cleaning fluid.

Tip

Printer Ink refill ....



Well, in general I recommend not using refills. They are probably OK for printers with ink nozzles that are NOT built into the cartridge (like Canon printers), but I would still be careful. The ink may not be the same quality as what you would get from the manufacturer.
If you are using an HP printer, the ink nozzle is built into the printer cartridge and is not meant to be run for refill after refill. When you replace your ink cartridge, you also replace your old nozzle with a brand new one. Helps keep the print quality good (especially important if you're trying to print out photographs).
Another point to consider is that when you bought your printer, you were probably looking at print quality. Why take a chance on compromising that print quality to save a few bucks?

Why have my ink pads come to an end already and how do you change them i have an epson px700w?



Hi

You do not say which operating system you are using.


You do not say if you are using original Epson branded or compatible generic brand cartridges.

You do not say if the printer is new and if this is your first cardtridge change, or not.

Sometimes the cartidges that come with the printer are low volume, starter cartridges. The 2 types of cartridges have slightly different codes to distinguish them.

Some people prefer generic brand, compatible cartridges, which are generally cheaper but can be of inferior quality and some can contain inferior quality ink. Others prefer original Epson branded cartridges, which can be more expensive.

Some Epson printers can take both economy volume and high volume cartridges.

In Windows operating systems, generally:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Epson PX700W icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.

or

Print a document > Print Dialog Box > click "How To..." > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions> head cleaning >print test page.

Epson wont recognize black refill cartridge.


I'm assuming that you are probably using Non-Epson Ink Cartridges, because those are what normally cause that problem, with a printer not recognizing an installed ink cartridge. Unfortunately, there is no way to make your Epson Printer use or accept that Non-Epson Ink Cartridge, if it cannot actually recognize it. Its even possible that some Generic or Third-Party brands, may not always be recognized by the newer models of Epson Printers, because of the inexpensive [cheap] and or incompatable Electrical Chips that are mounted on the actual ink cartridge. Sometimes you will even get Error Messages up on your Monitors screen, telling you that you are actually using a Non-Epson Ink Cartridge, or that your printer cannot recognize the cartridge that you installed. Sometimes the Ink Level Indicator, on your Status Monitor, will not show an actual ink level, but may indicate a cartridge error or problem instead. Not all Generic or Third-Party ink & ink cartridges are made the same and none of them actually contain the right formulation of ink, for the Epson Printers [formula is patented by Epson Company]. Some are probably close and seem to be better than others, but some simply can clog-up or even damage the Printhead Assemblies on Epson Printers, or simply won't be accepted at all. Epson Ink Jet Printers are one of the few printers on the market that seem to have so many problems with non-manufactors inks, especially the newer models made in the last couple of years. Its because the Epson Printers use a completely different printhead inking system than most other brands of printers. Most, if not all of the other manufactors, use thermal or bubble jetprint heads and because the other brands use a totally different system, they don't seem to have as many problems using refilled inks or non-manufactor's ink cartridges. Printer manufacters do not make available their ink formulation and in most cases, the formulation is patented. Any difference in the ink formulation can actually cause clogging in the small printhead nozzles or damage other critical components. One individual printhead nozzle is so tiny, that it will not accept a human hair, so you can see why they can get clogged so easily, or even why the nozzles can be so easily damaged...Even if you were actually using a New-Epson Ink Cartridge, its always possible that you got a bad cartridge. At this point, the only thing I can suggest is that you try a different New-Epson Ink Cartridge, or at the very least, a different brand of Non-Epson Ink Cartridges and see if that helps.

What does 'Print Cartridge in right stall not supported' mean?


It means you have a faulty or incorrect cartridge installed on the right side position. It could also mean the contacts are dirty or misaligned. Remove the cartridge, clean with rubbing alcohol and reinstall.

This is not a unknown error particularly if you are using cartridges other than the HP brand. Other people will tell you it is fine to use off brand cartridges or refilled cartridges. For myself, I have never had luck doing that - on the other hand, I have never been disappointed using the more expensive cartridges recommended by the manufacturer across several brands including Epson, Canon, Compaq and HP.

Try cleaning the contacts and ink jets. You may have to replace the cartridge. If that is the case, I would return the faulty cartridge and get a store credit.

Just a few thoughts for you to consider. Thank you for using FixYa.com today.

I replaced all of the cartridges with Epson, but the black won't print. After some nozzle checks, black is getting low and STILL no black printing occurring... what going on? Now the other colors are...


Nozzle cleaning uses a lot of ink, that's probably why the other ink cartridges are registering low on ink. Are you using refilled cartridges or brand new? Also, have you had the cartridges for awhile? I've found that the nozzles can become clogged either from not using the printer for awhile or because it's a recycled cartridge that didn't have the nozzles cleaned before it was refilled. When that happens, unfortunately, sometimes it takes a lot of cleaning cycles before the printing comes back. Let me know more about the cartridges you have.

Does not reconize non epson ink cartridge. I remove and reinstalled and it printed but now its back to not reconize cartridge.

All colours and black print faded. Black is a


ANSER #1

Assuming that you are using original Canon cartridges or a brand of Compatibles that you have used before.

If print results are blurred, colors are faded or not printed correctly, the pint head nozzles are probably clogged.

Follow the procedure below to print the nozzle check pattern, check the print head nozzle condition, then clean the Print Head. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.

If printed ruled lines are misaligned or print results are otherwise unsatisfactory, aligning the Print Head may improve print quality.

Caution Do not rinse or wipe the Print Head and ink tanks. This can cause trouble with the Print Head and ink
tanks.

Note Before performing maintenance
Open the Top Cover and make sure that all lamps on the ink tanks are lit red.
If not, see Checking the Ink Status and take an appropriate action.
Increasing the print quality in the printer driver settings may improve the print result.
