Won't print black: refuses to change form 'Fine Photo Pro' mode
Although this printer generally produces good results, it has had two faults:-
1.) after using it to print a few CDs, it will not change its default back again to A4 paper. Each time I go and change it by hand (and change default setting) it ignores me next time.
2.) it is currently refusing to change from 'Fine Photo Pro' mode, and is not outputting any text or solid black at all.
I guessed I needed to update / replace the driver, but trying this hasn't worked.

Do nozzle check. Is it perfect? If only one or two nozzle missing, it must be "good result" in photo quality mode printing. But if, there is too much nozzle missing, result is no good. If nozzle check is perfect, but the result is not satisfied, check the PF scale and PF scale sensor.
Check your computer settings. It has programming to make Negatives like the old photo film would produce and this may be the Mode that it is set for. You could also be in the Infared Mode which would give you more strange results.
I am not an expert for this area, but I have used some of the photo programs both on my set and at the Drugstores. You could also have set your Camera, if Digital, for the wrong Mode and taken the photos in Infared or Negative Modes. The printer would not be at fault, just accurately printing the way it was recorded.
to print you have to
1- remove the old driver from your mac
2- install the driver agin
3- do a nozzle check on the printer
4- if the mac didn't recognize the printer so you have to change the usb printer cable with a new one
thank you and good luck
printer working ok-did 50 colour photos ,6x4 when i made a mistake and pushed the print button when there was still about 1 inch of the previous photo still being printed.This print emerged with overprint of about 1".Thereafter the printer has refused to operate properly the next print being heavily discoloured.It then told me to replace the light magenta cartridge-this I did and the discolouration changed hew.It then told me to change the magenta and light cyan carts.-I did and discolouration changed again.It then told me to change the yellow and cyan=siscolouration now bright
red over coloured. I then successfully printed a letter in B&W proving that the black cartridge was still working.However as soon as I tried again to print a coloured photo it now tells me that the machine does not recognise the black cartridge and orders me to change it and until I do refuses to take any instructions telling me to install the black cartridge cprrectly.The black cartridge installed isout half full and has successfully printed copies and photos.I have carried out the suggested remedies by the machine and none were effectuve.How do it the infernal machine working again???
The printer is very good.I ve been using it for approx 1 year now.The printer works on a combination of both black as well as colour ink cartridges.If any of the cartridge is empty,printer will not print.Kindly call Kodak with your problems at 1800 421 6699 and they will take care of the issue for you.
Epson's RX620 scans and prints photos at high quality. Text, however, was slow to print and not that good.
multifunction devices fall into two categories: general-purpose models
that are designed for home or small office use, and photo-oriented
devices such as this, aimed more at the enthusiastic amateur snapper.
Because it's a photography-centred device, the RX620 uses dye inks.
On photo paper, these produce more vibrant colours than pigment-based
inks, and a true gloss finish, but on plain paper produce inferior,
less vivid results.
The Stylus Photo RX620 is quite large, and looks dated - but it's
not short of modern photo-printing features. Its built-in memory card
reader is compatible with seven commonly used digital memory formats,
including xD and SmartMedia. Photographers using film will appreciate
the scanner, with its high optical resolution and transparency
On plain paper the RX620's text printing showed bandingand rough outlines on default settings. Our five-page
black-and-white text document took two and a half minutes to print.
Increasing quality settings made it even slower.
We tried realigning the print heads to improve print quality. The
RX620's manual process involves choosing the best-aligned examples from
four rows of 15 patterns. This takes good eyesight, and it can be hard
to choose between similar-looking options. We needn't have bothered -
text remained unchanged.
Photo printing was far better. The RX620 produced some of the best
prints we've seen from a multifunction device, but only at its highest
quality - and slow - setting. Our A4 test picture took 15 minutes 12
seconds to appear.
The RX620's scanner is excellent, previewing an A4 sheet in six
seconds and scanning a 6x4in photo at 600 dots per inch (dpi) in just
14.5 seconds. Negative scan times were reasonable, with a single frame
scanned at 2,400dpi in 1 minute 40 seconds.
The RX620 can perform many advanced functions without being attached
to a computer, and its colour screen has a clear menu system. Prints
can be made directly from memory cards, photo prints or even film.
There are four document copying settings, but results using the default
Text quality are adequate for most office purposes.
The RX620 isn't a brilliant multifunction device. It does many
things well, but its printer is too slow, and simply not good enough on
Please rate my solution after reading it. Thank you
Hi, I have question?
The ink that yuo are change are original epson cartidge ink?If yes , try to head cleaning twice and then nozzle check ,then the result of test print are soild in color are good , the unclean head having plenty spaces within the color in test print.
You may well be on the right track
Certainly nothing to do with the printer as such
It will only squirt the inks it is told to.
So check the printer software[drivers] for starters- Is it possible you have the latest -check makers web site.
This may also apply to your graphics card/image editor.
Do ensure all the latest[current drivers and patches] are loaded.
For example I Paint Shop Pro- Coral will sent updates from time to time some of which seem to be almost as big as the original program.
If I have occasion to reinstall or repair the prog- I must always remember to reload the updates.
