Question about Epson Stylus 2200 InkJet Photo Printer

1 Answer

I have an Epson 2200 with a bulk ink supply system, when I am running very large sized prints, the printer starts printing fine for the first several prints and then all of a sudden the print head/carriage starts printing very, very slowly back and forth almost at 40% of original speed. No other applications are running. I have checked everything, computer, memory, cables, etc. The only thing that seems to cure the problem is resetting the ink chips AND resetting the waste ink pad counter. Then its fine for a while and then the problem repeats. Any idea what may be causing the printer to slow down in the middle of a print? Can the motherboard or ink chips wearout or develop problems with excessive use?

Even with new inks, magenta and yellow won't print


The ink you replaced costs as much as a new printer that comes with ink. Get a new one.

How can I stop ink spots on photos and documents?


Ink leakage can occur if the bulk ink reservoirs are at a level above the printer. Let the two in the same level.
This can also occur because of quality of paper or ink.

Epson is n't printing some of the colors


The only thing you might be able to do is to tag a rag, put some acetone or fingernail polish remover and then wipe the contacts where the print cartridges plug in. My guess is that you had ink dry up in those and the acetone should dissolve the dried ink. If this doesn't work, the printer is pretty much useless.

Inkjet photo printing


This may sound idiotic, but print out a nozzle check pattern in your maintenance tab. Good chance you have a clogged printhead. Check out how to do a print head cleaning and what solutions and tools you'll need. Careful if you're using compatible inks or refilled cartridges, or long expired ink.

This one works great for me. Go GENTLY, best not to use Windex or any unauthorized solutions, as they may cause damage to plastic parts.
