Epson 9600 suddendly stopped printing yellow

I have a 3 yr old Espon 9600...has been printing fine....ran two prints perfectly. Next day everything printed with a purple cast. Did nozzle check and found no yellow was printing at all! Right before this I had put in a full new yellow cartridge...printed a few good prints then nothing. Did numerous cleanings and nozzle check along with 1 power clean. Still nothing! Of course Epson wants $1500 to just look! One tech said it may be a bad cartridge...any ideas?

It's NOT a cartridge if this works... I had a similar problem with a 9600 I bought on eBay that had been inoperable over 18 months. Three colors would NOT clear up after multiple power cleanings. Epson support politely solved the issue at no charge on the phone... he had me drop a few drops of warm water on the pad the printhead rests on when not printing. You have to move the printhead to the left to do that by moving up the little lever near the cutter. The pad is easier to reach with a long eye dropper. I used very warm water- not boiling. I replaced the printhead over the warm water pad for an hour. Then I repeated the process and let it be for another 60 minutes. Then I did a nozzle check and what was gummed up yellow, cyan, and magenta nozzles became clear and it's worked fine since. Good luck!

I was away from my Epson 9600 stylus pro printer for a few weeks and when I came back I did a nozzle check and the printout was only printing all of black some of yellow and nearly all of light black. after K2 clean it remained the same. this head is 4 months old and the damper kit is also new. I soaked the damper in purified water and left it for a few days. when I tried again I got the same black results. this time the only other coler was the yellow nozzle and it was orange. any suge

Epson 4800 Error message - Service req. 100001C0

I was printing quite happily on my Epson 4800 one evening recently, but the next morning the automated nozzle check sent by Harvey Head Cleaner did not print and there were a couple of flashing red LEDs and the printer's LCD display was saying "Service req. 100001C0". What to do? I was about to set off for the day job so I just had to leave it flashing away as I had no idea what to do, but fear the worst...

I did a quick web search that evening and found very little, but a couple of posts seemed to think that turning off the printer was the solution.

I had a look at the Espon Field repair guide that I have and found the following in the error codes section:
100001C0

AC disruption (AC Power) (Unplug and wait 30 sec., then plug back in)

I have the printer plugged into a
power surge protector block so there should not have been any problems and no other equipment was saying that there had been a power outage, but...

So I turned off the printer and left it for a day while I got on with the day job again. When I turned on the printer there was a lot of whirring while it went through its "auto something or other" routine (see previous postings for my thoughts on this) which I watched with a lot of trepidation as this often converts a perfect nozzle check into one with one of more colours completely missing.

Eventually it told me to press pause and then went into it's "Ready" mode.

I ran a nozzle check and it came out perfectly, so all was well again.

Printer will only print purple


on a colour printer, black is mixed with the other colours. Try printing a black and withe photo and you always get a colour cast. If your black cartridge is empty or the nozzles are blocked, you get bad colour and fussy prints.
test all nozzles, like is explained in the manual.
Check, if you know how to do, if nothing fell in the printer, that is now on the print head. Sometimes just dust or paper scraps are picked up by the printhead, making it difficult for the printer to print a normal page.

Color differences


i apologize for the inconvinience.

the possible reason why its printing the right color, is bec. some of the nozzles might be clogged by dried inks, so when inks come out, the combination of colors are not balance. try printing a nozzle check first, if the nozzle check have gaps or breaks, try head cleaning, nozzle check after it so you can see if it improve or still w/ gaps, just do nozzle check, head cleaning, then nozzle check, head cleaning alternately until no more gaps then try to print.

Printing a nozzle check pattern
Load paper in your printer
In SelecType mode, press the Paper Feed (fontu1.gif) or Paper Feed (fontd1.gif) button until TEST PRINT is displayed on the LCD panel, and then press the SelecType button.
Press Paper Feed (fontu1.gif) or Paper Feed (fontd1.gif) button to display NOZZLE CHECK
Press SelecType button to display PRINT
Press the Enter button. The nozzle check pattern is printed as shown below. After printing, printer exits the SelecType mode and return to the READY status.
Nozzle check pattern examples:
good

Different ink settings banding


Try doing a printer head alignment, sounds like the printer heads are overlapping causing the banding.
Screen colors also never match perfectly to the print either, whist your monitor can produce millions of colors, the printer can only do some many.

Prints purple instead of black on photos only


My Canon printer has TWO slots for black ink cartridges. I assumed one was extra and didn't replace it when I ran out. Text printed just fine with only one installed, but my photos were printing with purple instead of black. I looked into it, and the two cartridges are different: one holds dye-based ink, the other has pigment based. Photos must require both kinds. If your printer is the same as mine, use both!

Lines on prints


Hi kids! I decided to have another go at sorting out my 'lines' problem and have sorted it. See if this might work for you: I had previously done the head cleaning via the printer itself - holding the central ink/paper black button for 3 secs. This time I went to the Epson 1290 window on my Mac and clicked on the utility box. Though the Nozzle check print came out fine I went ahead and did the head cleaning in this box. The next print came out almost perfect so I ran the Head cleaning again and it printed a perfect print. Hope this might work for you. Keep on trying! All the best. Trant
