    As mentioned, the heads are clean. It was actually a driver problem that can be fixed by going to drivers & support then FAQS at epson.com.

Epson r1800 nothing printing


I had same problems and i took it back bc it happened right away. I ask if there was any recalls and was told no. My best advice i was given about printers is buy a new one when your ink runs out bc the cost of ink will get you a better printer than you have now bc prices drop so much.

I have an Epson Photo 1800 printer with a broken ink jet. Is the repair worth the cost or is it time to trash the printer?


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages,then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer thanreplace the print head.

Connected r1800 to mac, print browser page, blinking power light, no printing


Run a nozzle check to see if all inks are printing out. Turn printer off, then hold down the paper button ( top ), while holding it down, press and hold the power button. When you see the power light flashing green, release both buttons. It should print a nozzle check pattern. You should see 7 columns of different colored lines and one checkered board pattern. There should be no gaps and breaks on the lines. If pattern is no good, you need to do head cleaning.Press the ink button for 3 seconds. Power light will flash and print head will move. This will take one to two minutes. After it is complete ( power light turns solid green ) you need to do a nozzle check pattern to verify if there is improvement or If head cleaning needs to be repeated.

Epson Stylus R1800 is not printing correctly. It is skipping spots leaving clear areas across the page. Changed all the cartridges.

Epson R1800 On Print Preview of a photograph


I print with the R1800 as well as the 24" 7880 in my studio. Whenever the "preview" shows less than the whole image I intend to print it is generally either the orientation (portrait/landscpe) is set incorrectly or the Paper size selected is incorrect for the size of the print.

Hope this helps

Washed out prints - no color - not vivid


I just had the same problem -- go to epson.com and look under drivers and support. Select the R1800 and go to FAQS, there it will tell you how to resolve a driver issue that can cause this.

Printhead protector


Hi-

Nope you dont need one. Just turn the printer off while not in use or if youre planning not to use it for a long time, run some head cleaning cycles as well and print a nozzle check before printing photos. have the same printer and love them so much.

Thanks for using fixya!

RED WON'T PRINT


Hi-

Try running a head cleaning from your computer, if you are using XP go to printers and faxes under control panel and right click on your printer icon then go to printing preferences then go to maintenance and run head cleaning cycles for 3x then print a nozzle again. if all fails cal epson and check for the warranty so that you can have it replace, coz chances are the nozzle for magenta is clog.

Hope this helps
