Remove the cartridge (use the change cartridge facility in Properties/Advanced area of the printer dialogue box for Properties) and carefully wipe the gold chip contacts with a clean piece of cotton cloth (NOT microfibre!). Replace and try again. This can happen with both compatible and original Epson cartridges from time to time. if an original and it still does not get recognised, tape over the bottom outlet and the top area where you removed the piece of tape before installing and send back to Epson for replacement.

SOURCE: printer won't print color

when you change the ink cartridges you are NOT changing the print head. The print head is in the carrier. If the print head has become clogged or worn then usually it needs to be replaced. Unfortunately it us probably cheaper to buy a new printer.

SOURCE: epson stylus cx8400 cannot recognize ink cartridges

I had the same problem except it would not recognize any of the ink cartridges. I kept hitting the OK button over and over again with the same cartridges in place not removing them at all and it finally recognized them. Decided to go to maintenance on the printer to do a test, and it went right back to not recognizing the cartridges. So i pressed the OK button over and over again until it finally recognized all the cartridges again, but this time i did not try and go into the maintenance to do a test run. Plugged it up to the computer and it has been working ever since. So press the OK button until it recognizes the cartridges, and run no tests on it is what my solution was for the problem. Really is a pain but it works now.

SOURCE: My Epson Stylus NX 400 is not printing.

no it cannot. Those multi-colored cartridge system requires that you put in every single color, AND ensure that they are not empty before they will print. Even if all you want is a black and white copy.

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.

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. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

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

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Why does my Epson Stylus NX300 print a rainbow color band at the bottom of vertical 4x6 pictures


DOES THIS COLOR SHOW UP ON YOUR PRINT PREVIEW?

IF NOT, THAN GO INTO PRINT CARTRIDGES ON YOUR COMPUTER AND CLEAN THEM UP!

THAN DO A TEST ON A SEPERATE PIECE OF PAPER THE SAME PICTURE TO MAKE SURE IT HAS STOPPED WITH THE RAINBOW PROBLEM YOU'RE HAVING.

YOU MAY ALSO HAVE PICTURE SETTINGS WRONG ON YOUR COMPUTER, YOU CAN CHECK THESE UNDER PRINT PREFERENCES.

IF NON OF THE ABOVE WORK, THAN TAKE YOUR PRINT CARTRIDGES OUT AND CLEAN THE CONTACTS WITH SOME RUBBING ALCOHOL AND A Q-TIP.

I have a new Epson Stylus NX300 Series. When I


Diane,
We try to steer people away from new Epson printers unless they plan on purchasing a professional model. The new Epson cartirdges have little ink and finicky. I would try power cycling the machine with the cartridges removed (unplug it for 30sec.) then reinstall the cartridges. If the problem persist call Epson and let them know what you think. If they don't help you, buy an HP. But but an HP that takes integrated print head cartridges or you'll be in the same situation.

Pat.

The only way you can do that is by using a chip re-setter. They have them in refill shops, and I think you can buy one on e-bay.

Turn on the Epson Stylus.

  • If a cartridge is expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus display screen. The icon on the screen indicates which color to replace. Press OK.
