Re: ink not set

At the back of the machine open the door and make sure that the green levers are in the up position or if they are there at all.

As these levers apply pressure between the heat and the pressure roller forcing the toner onto the page. If they are there and in the correct position then the likely thing is that the fuser unit will need replacing.

Hope this is of help to you
Thanks J

How do I make a test page for my printer to check color.

You need to clarify :
1. Your printer cannot print color even though it prints color well from a test page;
2. Your printer cannot print color in a test print page.

If it is the first one, then you have to set it properly in Window Print Configuration page of that printer;
If it is the second one, then you have to check whether you have installed the color ink cartridge properly in the printer. If the color ink cartridge is installed properly, try to replace another new color ink cartridge. Finally it is still not work, then you have to bring back to the repair center.

Hi i have an epson stylus c64 and it hasnt been used in quite some time, i tried to print from it and it didnt work so i went and bought all new ink cartridges for it as i thought because it was stilling...

When printers sit for a long time, the ink in the cartridge dry-up as well as the ink in the printer orifices.
Since you replaced with new ink, then safe to assume the ink is dry and clogging the orifices.
You can pay for technician to attempt to clean but new printers are fairly inexpensive. Best bang for the buck would be to purchase a new printer.

Just replaced ink cartridge and still says cjeck ink and it will not print

did you get a brand name canon pg40 or pg 50 ink cartridge, i replaced the one at works black cartridge with an eco refilled cartridge and it still showed up empty even though i know it wasn't. its canons way of making sure you buy canon. there are ways around it though. hit menu navigate to "rx settings" hit okay then hit okay on "autoprint rx" make sure it is set to on and hit okay, then make sure "print when no ink" is also set to on and hit okay again. it will now automatically print even if the machine thinks there is little or no ink. cheaper knock off cartridges here we come!

Won't print black when set for plain paper

Try removing all ink bins except black then you won't have any problems. You should also be able to go into your printer settings and select "Black and White" or "No Color" and it will print ok. Removing the ink trays is the easiest way though.

Non of the inks are working, even though they are all new carts.

so go back to maintenance mode. Make sure all carts are at full level, placed well and are secured. press 7 then 6 then 4 by help of arrow-up and set key. display should be init_all. press start bk-copy. when finished (maintenance) press 7-6-3 then start bk-copy.
leave maintenance after cleaning procedure by pressing 9 then 9. If youre lucky the generic ink hasnt affected the ph. print a test prit. if you cant see any blocks nor signs the ph needs replacement.

anyway: if you use generic ink do mix some glycerol (glycerin alc.) from drugstore: 2ml of 85%-glycerol with 8ml of generic ink. This prevents the ph nozzels from drying out or clogging!
