My Epson R265 prints all of the colours green

Hi,

I've just changed all of the ink cartridges but all of the colours are coming out green, even the black. I've had this printer for about 2 years and it has never done this.

Hi If you are using compatable inks try taking the ink cartridge out and put it back in again try this three or four times to see if it will accept it if not try a different cartridge you can sometimes get a duff one The earlier models have a different cartridge than the later models epson altered them and changed the chip

Epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

Epson R265 printing colours incorrectly


For the black and white issue, check the settings and make sure that it isn't set on "sepia". As for the color issue, it is quite possible that you are out of ink. Printers may use more of one color than another depending on what you're printing. Change your color cartridge.

How can I print using colour cartridges when I'm out of black?


Some printers don't allow that. my r265 for instance, and my brother's newer epson. a lot of newer printers requier all inks to be there, even if they're not necesery for the current print.
sorry, looks like you need all of them, too.

Check status monitor if empty or low:
Replace if empty ect:

Soak the cartridge nozzles upright in Flush Solution for 6 hours dry and retry , make up a A4 Paper colour printing page with each colour band about 1" high x 8" wide and print out 4 - 6 pages checking which colour band is poor:

Keep printing if improvement noticed:
if not
Resoak the offending cartridges and repeat:
also can
Use cleaning cartridge on offending colour slot/s then retry:

Dont use the head cleaning utility to much as it is programmed to disable your printer after a pre-set number of cleans and will have to be serviced:
