The problem could be because of clogging of print head nozzle. It can be due to using non-epson ink Cartridges or even due to aging equipment.

You can try getting a print head cleaning solution and clean it, but you must do it with great care because the nozzles are very delicate.
You can buy one here http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/kits/epson

I would not recommend this, but if you're desperate you can get a cotton swab like ear bud, dip it in distilled water, and clean the gold contacts. Don't forget to switch the power off before doing this and wait for 4 hours, so that it dries.

R230 epson color


The cartridge head may have gotten clogged. Take the cartridge out and clean the head with a damp cloth and print a couple of pages to set this right.

Also, print a test page to make sure the ink hasn't dried up. If it has, you will have to get a new cartridge.

1. open a document. 2. control-P - shortcut for print. then click properties, click maintenance, then click head cleaning. after this print check pattern. continue doing this until your light magenta and yellow ink gets clearer. if it didn't work replace your light magenta and yellow cartridge.

My Epson printer R230 doesnt print Light magenta and Yellow ink


Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

Cyan is not printing in EPSON-R230


Nothing at all of cyan and light-cyan?. It might be damage/broken micro pump at head or short circuit. Replace head or buy new printer.

Can you help me.. plz..?


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?


ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)
