I have a CX9400Fax and occassionally print is mixed/missing lines. You must do a Cleaning cycle usually at least 4-6 times or until it prints a clear pattern. It will use LOTS of ink during the cleaning cycle. The printer normally uses a lot of ink, my solution was to purchase a CISS system along with a Waste Ink Container. IMO the best CISS is sold by the company below. I did have to call for tech support once and they returned my call in 30 minutes, problem solved and never came back. I purchase refill ink and it seems that I do a lot less cleaning cycles.

Problem with colour printing. Orange and green


Wow, that's a really old EPSON printer. The life expectancy of a EPSON printer is just three years, after that, the printer wouldn't work because of the clogged permanent printing head. The authorized service center is unable to repair it because the spares are no longer supplied.
Throw it to a recycling center.

Epson cx3200 wrong colour


It is possible that when the printer senses not enough black ink it will swap to using the colour tanks to try and make a BLACK.

It is also possible that you have mistakenly adjusted a setting in the epson printer program to use the colour tanks to print black and white photographs.

Either of those would certainly cause the problem you describe

Check ALL your printer settings both the windows ones AND your epson ones

ESPON Stylus Photo R200 Ink Status Problem


Hi,

The epson like many other brands actually uses a small amount of the coloured ink in order to give the black print a more polished look.

You must use your printers properties page to set printing mode to Greyscale if you don't want it to use the colours.

To do this go into your control panel, open the printers icon, and select your printer, right-click on it and select Properties from the grey menu.

You will have to look through the pages and find the setting or check box for Grayscale. When you find it, select it, then click ok at the bottom of the page. This will stop the printer from using coloured inks to tone the black print.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

I just want to print a word document in black ink, but...........


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. 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. ( Also Epson gets to sell you more cartridges)

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

Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK.

Horrible ink issues..


Unless you are printing a lot in that color, my Epson Stylus photo color R300 uses black at about twice the rate as the color ones. Most packages or ink, I find, also come with two black and one of every color. All my color ones seem to emply at approximately the same time as the others.

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.

New out of box!!


If you already have tried reseating all of the inks and and inks are still not recognized, Please contact Epson tech support for a replacement ink or if they find out after some diagnostics that it is the printer that is having an issue they would be replacing your printer.
