Question about Epson 1000 ICS All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Nothing Prints on the page

Brand new cartridges, both black and color, and nothing is printing on the page, completely white. I called Epson, and they are so not helpful, they went through everything I had done ten times, with nothing.

The new ink cartridges are going empty trying to clean the unit, and I still get nothing printed on the page. I know there is something inside that printer I can wipe off old ink or something to get the ink flowing again.

Thanks for any info you can offer

Mp960 color prints ok but black and white not printing

When was the last time you printed in color? New ink printers are built so with a "use it or lose it" theme. The print heads are now built into the machines and are not generally replaceable. Yours luckily is, but I don't know how easily. The link below is to the replacement which costs $130 + shipping. Sometimes it can be just as worth it to buy a new machine, in this case I would probably prefer to repair the damaged machine as the new printer cartridges cost more and have less ink.

Have new ink cartridges, however when I print a test page, nothing but the windows logo prints

You mean, the black color is completely absent from the printed page? Either the black cartridge is faulty and needs to be cleaned, or (less likely) the cartridge carriage is faulty.

Try running the "Printer Head Cleanup" routine from the printer manager maintenance menu.

Cyan cartridge prints spotty.

Your print head is probably clogged. If you have already tried the cleaning cycle, it's time to take the printer into an Epson repair center to find out what the problem is. More than likely they will have to replace the print head.

Non printing epson c20ux

Sounds like color cartridge ran out. Were u using color to print black?

Try new color cartridge.

Then if you don't need color go in and set to use black cartridge to print black (text).

If you need color on something only takes a minute to turn color back on.

Since printer worked you can go in and select black which uses the black cartridge and if it prints gives validity to a bad/empty color cartridge.

Good luck.
