The problem can be two fold. Wrong cartridges, or blocked/damaged inkjet openings. Return it to the seller under warranty if its brand new. If it was fitted with non epson cartridges your warranty may be in question.

But I could almost guarantee the black qand the blue cartridges are faulty or their feed jets are

My Epson 1400 is printing blacks green. After gray 40 % all my gray and black is coming out green. what can I do to solve that, and please don't tell me to chane my printer I just boughted it 4 months ago.


The printer is using your color cartridge to print black and greys.
The black cartridge must be empty and will need to be replaced.
The color cartridge has depleted one of the primary colors required
to print black.
Both cartridges will need to be replaced

Epson Stylus Photo 1400 Prints Dark Shadows Red!


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges? ????

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine 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 MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. 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. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE
BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

I located a page on fixyourownprinter.com’s forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

My epson stylus photo200 is not printing properly


Exactly how is it printing?

With words not printing properly?
On my epson, I went and bought Cheaper Ink, which was supposed to be compatible,and it wasnt!

What the epson, did, was print out in different colors.
the green was blue and yellow was pink, etc.

Epson, restricts you from buying other brands, like that. It makes you buy their Brand !!!!!!!
Good Luck.

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.

My epson c45 not printing the exact colors that is


I suppose that you have cleaned the heads to eliminate any clogging. In that case the Printer cartridges were probably refilled in the wrong order. Try using a new one and post again if it's the same.

Cleaning cycle a few times. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

Compaq IJ650 ink jet printer will not print color.


Just because it’s new does not mean New Old Stock. Your print head is plugged. No if or buts about it. Contact HP and tell them you situation. If they don’t help you, box it up and take it back. Buy an Epson.

EPSON 1400 PRINT HEAD


Printheads on that EPSON...as almost all Epson brand printers are IMPOSIBLE to change. Are made for waste containers! It's trgough. If you can change head on that, maybe in a bit less than 200 hours! It's NOT a joke! Better, i nought a K8400 HP large format...It's 4 seconds to change heads. Also, they are cheap price and LAST very very long...but NEVER let any inkjet printer without printing all 4 colors for a minimum of 1 page in 3 weeks. Heads would dry. If you care you'll print with the K8400 for about 100,000 pages.

Colour problems when printing with dj 130


I had similar problems when I first installed the printer and after different tests we found out that the Magenta ink print head was faulty. Changed head to a new one and problem solved. You will need to recalibrate and do paper set up's again.
