Question about Epson Stylus C120 Inkjet Printer - Color - 5760 x 1440 dpi Print - Photo Print - Desktop 37 ppm Mono / 20 ppm Color Print - USB

1 Answer

New ink, printer's status is "ready", but it gives out blank pages. The machine acts as if it was printing with clear or invisible ink. Looks like it's doing its job, but you don't see it. Thank you

This printer is about 5 years old. I haven't used it for about a year. Could this be a problem? Thank you

Did you remove the protective strip on the cartridge before installing it?
I would recommend to remove and then reinstall it, if everything looks OK you might want to exchange the cartridge for a new one. It sounds like the cartridge might have a problem.

Error code 0xc18a0201


Hi.

The code means Ink System Failure. First disconnect power cord to reset the printer and test using different cartridges.

If that does not work try the procedure below:

"Press and hold the "left arrow" key.

Press the "Setup" key and release both keys.

Display should say "Enter Special Key Combo"
Press and release the "OK" button

1. Press and release the right arrow button until the display says "System Configuration Menu".
2. Press and release the "OK" button.
3. Display should say "Hardware failure status". If not there already, Arrow Key over to "Hardware failure status",
4. Press and release the "OK" button.
5. Display should say "Hardware failure status: Clear. Press OK to clear".
6. Press and release the "OK" Button. Message changes to "Hardware failure status Cleared. Press Cancel to continue".
7. Press and release the "CANCEL" button as many times as necessary, so that, either the "Welcome to Photosmart Express" screen appears, or, the "Ink System Failure" screen appears. PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO PRINT AT THIS STAGE.
8. Using the Power Button, turn the unit OFF and unplug the power cable from back of the printer and wall outlet.
9. Wait 30 seconds for the power to get discharged and then plug the power cable into the wall outlet first and then into the back of the printer
10. Turn the unit on. The printer may display message "USE POWER BUTTON TO SHUTDOWN THE PRINTER" followed by "PRESS OK TO CONTINUE". Press OK.
11. If the printer has already initialized, then go to the next step. If not, the printer will start the "ONE TIME INK INITIALIZATION PROCESS". Allow this process to complete and do not interrupt. Once the initialization process is complete, the printer will print out a Diagnostic Page.

12. To verify printer functionality print a SELF TEST PAGE. If SELF TEST prints, then printer is ready for use.


NOTE: If the error is still there, or reoccurs replace the unit."

My HP Photosmart printer was printing just fine until I had to change ink cartridges. Now it won't print anything, it just spits out a blank page.


Sometimes your printer print blanks pages, if your printer is out of ink. You can check the quantity of ink in the status of the printer. Sometimes, your printer displays messages if it is out of ink. So if you are facing such issues, you need to refill the ink in your printer. Communication problem with the printer and computer is also a reason for printing blank pages.

CHECK TONER MC


Hello

This means your ink level is low but you can confirm this by doing the following;

.The Lexmark C500n uses powdered ink, called toner, like other laser printers. The printer creates a magnetic charge on the paper as it passes through the machine, forming text and images on the page. The printer then applies pressure and heat to the paper, fusing the powdered ink to the page so it will not smudge or run. At any time, you can check the amount of ink left in the printer's toner cartridge by printing a status page. This page will also show a tally of the number of pages printed by the machine, among other information.

Turn on the printer and let it warm up. Ensure the light next to "Ready" illuminates.

Press the "Go" button, or the button with the icon of the hand pressing a button. Use the arrow button on the printer's control panel to highlight "Test Menu," then press the button with the check mark.

Press the arrow button until you highlight "Status Page" on the printer's display panel. Wait as the printer generates a status page.

Retrieve the status page from the printer's output tray.

By doing this you will know the level of your toner.

I have the same issue - did you ever get it resolved?


Two possible causes...corrupt software or empty ink cartridge. there is usually an area on the printer menu for maintenance where you can check the status of the ink supply. replace any empty cartridges. Clean the print heads (wipe with alcohol rag) if they are not part of the replaced ink cartridges. If you're still having the problem...reinstall the printer software.
