Hi

Usually the alignment process executes when the ink cartridges are changed or replaced .
There is a way to print the alignment using the printer drivers in the printers and faxes folder.
let me know if you need further assistance

Hi, My Epson Stylus R230 light magenta ink not working.


Hi i'm a printer Technician
The problem of your printer could be that the surface of the printhead is dirty, and the Cleaning pad/tab doesn't work so good..

Here's a guide i wrote that I done multiple times on my customers printers:

1. Power on the printer, and when the carriage moves from the right to the left side instantly disconnect the power cord.

2. Move the Printer carriage (where the cartridges are installed) on the EXTREME LEFT side, please do it very slowly!

3. Take a syringe of hot water but not boiling, MAX. 70-75 °C

4. Expect the extreme right side of the printhead.. You could be able to see a little squared pad, dirty of ink, and on the left side of that PAD you could see a little rubber strip.

5. Take a tissue of paper and dab the furface of the Cleaner Pad (The squared pad you seen)

6. Take a new tissue of paper and place on it some hot water

7. Without burning your hands try to clean as soon as possible the rubber strip on the right part of the Pad.
It would be completely without ink on it

8. Take the hot water syringe and place some hot water on the Cleaner Pad (the amount of water is proportionate to the printer, you have to place water until you see that the surface of the pad is COMPLETELY full of water.

9. Gently move the carriage VERY SLOWLY on the extreme right side of the printer (where there's the Cleaning Pad)

10. Leave the printer like so for 3-5 hours, then restart the printer and do 2-3 cleaning cycles, better with a brand new black cartridge

11. Do a test print (Nozzle Check) and see if there are some changes!

Hope the Best!!

I changed the black and color ink cartridges on my Lexmark 2500 printer but both of the ink lights continue to blink off and on. I'm unable to get the printer to reset by disconnecting the printer and...


Make sure you are inserting the correct versions of cartridges for your model. Try to re-seat the cartridges by removing and re-inserting the cartridges in the carrier. The black cartridge goes in the left carrier while the color goes in the right. Also, make sure you are using genuine Lexmark cartridges.

Where are my ink cartridge located


According to page 13 of the User's Guide, the ink compartment should be visible if you lift up the scanner unit. Once you lift up the scanner unit, there should be an arm on the left side of the scanner that will prop it up , so you don't have to hold it any more.

Changing ink cartridge


  • Here is an instruction set I found at http://www.ehow.com/how_4488808_replace-ink-cartridges-lexmark-x2500.html
  • Step 1 Press the "Power" button to turn on your Lexmark X2500 3-in-1 printer.
  • Step 2 Open the top portion of the printer to reveal the ink cartridges.
  • Step 3 Lift the gray plastic cover on the left. Remove the empty black #28 ink cartridge. Next, lift the purple plastic cover on the right and remove the empty color #29 ink cartridge.
  • Step 4 Remove the new black #28 ink refill cartridge from its packaging. Tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor. Now, remove the new color #29 ink refill cartridge from its packaging and tear the protective strip of paper from the cartridge's sensor.
  • Step 5 Turn the cartridges so that you can read the label. This is the way the cartridges should face when being put into the printer.
  • Step 6 Slide the black #28 cartridge into the slot on the left side and push it down. Slide the color #29 cartridge into the slot on the right side and push down.
  • Step 7 Push the gray plastic cover down over the #28 cartridge until it clicks closed. Push the purple plastic cover down over the #29 cartridge until it clicks closed.
  • Step 8 Close the top portion of the printer. Your new ink cartridges are installed, and your printer is ready to use.

    Catridge won't go to right position


    Please follow the steps below to replace one or more cartridges.
    NOTE: It is necessary to have all four ink cartridges installed and supplied with ink in order for the unit to function properly. The unit will be in an OFFLINE state if the any of the cartridges are expended. This is a protection feature of the unit, to prevent air from being pumped through the print head.
    Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.
    **NOTE** To avoid damaging the unit, NEVER move the print head by hand.
    1. Make sure the unit is turned on, and not printing. The POWER light should be on, but not flashing.
    2. Lower the OUTPUT tray, and lift the scanner portion to access the ink cartridges.
    3. Press and release the INK button. The print heads will move to the left, and the cartridge that needs to be replaced will stop directly beneath the OUT OF INK symbol. Make a note of which cartridge requires replacement.
    4. Press and release the INK button again. If more than one ink cartridge is empty, the next cartridge will move under the OUT OF INK symbol. If no other cartridges are out of ink, the print heads will now move to the REPLACEMENT POSITION.
    5. Open the CARTRIDGE COVER. Pinch the front and back tabs of the empty cartridge as you lift it out of the unit. Dispose of this cartridge.
    6. Before you remove the new cartridge from its package, shake it four or five times.
    7. Remove the new cartridge from its package, and lower it into the cartridge holder. Push down gently until the cartridge clicks into place.
    8. Repeat steps 5-7 for each cartridge that you need to replace. Close the
    CARTRIDGE COVER once all of the necessary ink cartridges are replaced.
    9. Carefully lower the scanner, until it clicks into place
    10. Press and release the INK button.
    The ON light flashes and the printer makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the ON light stops flashing and stays on steady.
    Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus printer while the ON light is flashing, unless the Stylus printer hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

    Error 6a80


    Error 6A80

    I had this error and a Canon engineer showed me how to deal with this.

    Basically there is an "App Sensor" which is reporting the issue in my case the problem was with the "Purge unit".

    (a) Left up the cover to reveal the ink cartridges
    (b) Move the ink / print head to the left hand side
    (c) Look to the right under the flap where the ink would sit when printer is powered off
    (d) underneath there is something in white that is flat - this is called a wiper.
    (e) push this wiper with your fingers - pushing in the direction toward the front of the printer - you may need to do this a few times.
    (f) power off and then power on (using button on the front and NOT by pulling the power out of the back)

    Hopefully error should go after you attempt this a few times!
