My epson stylus t13 has color issue, it can print 'blue', when print blue it appear red. Please advice.


Hi!
Have you tried doing maintenance for nozzles? You can press and hold ink button for 3-5 seconds and it will run a head cleaning cycle. Try it 3 times and re-print.
Keep me posted.

Don't print in color


It's your printer head problem. Your printer head is now block. To remove the problem try to follow the proces:
1. Take some amonia solution ( amonia30%+ water70%) in a plastic seringe.
2.remove cartriges from cartrige holder.
3. Then set the seringe nipple in one stick (that is into cartrige holle all time while cartrige is push).
4. Then push the solution in to the black plastic stick.
Use these proces 5/6 time one after another to a black stick.
I think you may relive from your problem.
Thank you

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.

My tx101 epson all-in-one printer-does not print just the black ink even with a new genuine epson black cartridge


Make sure you removed the top tab to let air in. Remove the cartridge and make sure the plastic on the bottom got punctured when you installed it,and the little piece of plastic isn't caught in the ink port.
If you still can't print, your printheads are probably clogged. remove the cartridge and clean the print heads with a Qtip and some isopropyl alcohol (windex also works).

Troubleshooting

  1. Clear all print jobs waiting to be printed from the computer before turning off the printer. To fully clear all print jobs you will need to restart the computer. See the following Related Articles if you require help with this step:
  2. Once you have cancelled the print queue and restarted the computer, hold down the button-paper_trash.gif Paper/Bin/Cancel button or dx4400stopbutton.jpg Stop / Clear button for 3-5 seconds.
  3. Power off the printer/All-In-One. After it has powered off, also turn it off at the power point or disconnect its power cable, if possible.
  4. Open the printer lid/scanner unit to make sure any tape securing the ink cartridge holder/print head has been removed. Some printers have a plastic block which helps prevent the ink cartridge holder from moving during transit - make sure that this has been removed/is not in place.
  5. Check for any foreign objects inside the printer that may be causing an obstruction to the print head. Check for torn pieces of paper around the front of the printer and the ink cartridge holder/print head. Carefully remove any paper or other obstructions from the paper path and inside the printer by hand.
  6. Check that the ink cartridge holder/print head is positioned on the right side of the printer (as you look at it from the front). If it is positioned on the left, see the following Related Article: How can I resolve the issue where the print head positions itself on the left / does not return to its home position?
  7. Close the printer cover/scanner unit. Press the On button to power on the product. If the error message still appears, contact your dealer or EPSON.

I just brought an epson tx55ow i have put in ink cartridges but messages comes up as ink cartridges cannot be recognized??


Sorry for asking an obvious question, but did you remove the plastic film tab from the cartrigdes before inserting them? This is a small piece of plastic film covering the print head (the copper coloured metalic part of the cartridge that faces down when inserted.

How to remove print head of epson stylus photo r1800


Had the same problem - but the print head is actually easy to remove.

1) Remove ink cartridges
2) Remove 3 Phillips head screws at the bottom of the cartridge housing. (looking down from the printer front - top left, bottom left, top right).
3) There are 2 small plastic tabs on a plastic bracket that secure the flex cable on the right hand side of the cartridge housing. Gently release the tabs with a small flat head screw driver.
4) Lift the print head straight up (don't pull on the flex).

There may be a release for the flex to separate from the print head. But I did not see one. Instead I poured 1/4" of Windex in the bottom of a small plastic container and soaked my print head for about 15 minutes (occasionally agitating).

Then put back in reverse order - be sure to seat the flex in the guide (top-back-right) of the cartridge housing before screwing down. Then run a cleaning or two to flush the cleaning fluid out of the print head. (I have a waste ink tank installed so I am not worried about dumping excessive ink into the waste sponges).

The differences was remarkable - though there was still slight banding - maybe should have soaked longer (1 hr perhaps?) - I may repeat if it remains an issue.

Additionally there were large solid deposits on the left side of the print head which were responsible for scraping heavier weight photo paper. These dissolved in the Windex too.
