Question about Epson Stylus CX4200 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson Stylus CX 4200 won't print color copies of anything

Thank you for your free assistance. My problem is that when I try to print a color copy of anything, all I get is a solid page of semi-colored gray ink! I've check my cartridges' ink levels--all are fine. I've done both nozzle and head cleanings. Everything seems to be in order, but I am unable to print things using the color option. Black and white printing works fine. This problem just suddenly appeared. Any suggestions you have for fixing/trouble-shooting this problem would be most appreciated. Thank you again.

Uninstall the printer software.
Restart your computer.

Download the latest drivers and software for the printer.

Load the software.

Part of the software could have corrupted itself...

I just replaced both ink cartridges in my esp3 printer. But when I print, the page comes out blank


You need a new Print Head:
Clean the printhead, then print a test page.
  1. On the control panel, press and hold Cancel + Copy/Resume simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes. The On/Off light continues to flash during the cleaning procedure.
  2. When the On/Off light glows steady, press and hold Quantity + Cancel simultaneously until the On/Off light flashes, then wait for the test page to print.
  3. Review the printed test page and verify that:
    • the left color blocks are gray, cyan, and black.
    • the right color blocks are magenta, yellow, and black.
    • each block is completely filled with color.
    • Is the test page blank?

HP C6180 color copies (on plain paper) aren't full color


Here's the official HP solution for what you're experiencing. If you try all the steps suggested and you still have a problem, remember that you can contact HP for warranty support for the cartridges you've purchased - even if your printer is out of warranty.

One thing I'd try first is to print a self-test page. If you print a self-test page and the colors appear normal, you can rule out the iMac as the source of the problem.
The instructions for printing a self-test page are similar to the c7280 shown in the following video.

  2. Press and hold # and 6 while plugging in the power cord.
  3. Make a color copy of any document by pressing the Start Copy Color button on the control panel.

After replacing my color cartridge my printer won't print in color. but it will copy color pages perfectly.


When you go to print from IE check the prefrences and see if it is set to Monochrome. It should be under the Advanced tab.
