Re: printer stops at 25%

It has so many guesses like priter is doing its job perfactly but it needs some time to print...try single paper and check...
or if it is happening with single paper too check that printer is giving some error like can not print .....
if this error is coming on your printer check properties of your printer may be your printer needs something...go through these properties u can easily find missing thing...

if u need any help ask me....

Kodak esp 5210 wont print black

I figured it out. If you are low on (25%) on either colors or black, then it won't print. Even if you load a new black cartridge and it reads as 100% black, it won't print because it will only print when BOTH cartridges have been replaced and reads 100%.
Same thing happens reversed with color being replaced.
So basically, ALL printers short you 25% ink and FORCE you to buy their ink more often. Kodak is no exception.
I have 100% black and 25% color and a BW only needed text paper won't print. I been through this before. *facepalm*

Did you check the back of the printer to see of there was any paper caught in the back. Do you have a change drum lite? Any strange noises? Is your toner cartridge oem or compatible?

Try to completely reboot your printer or fiddle around with the printing status on your actual computer. If that doesn't work try erasing the printers memory of ever printing anything then re-sync it with your computer.

Epson CX6400 Wont Print after being left on for a week.

I agree with Epson. Epson printers are very very hard to unclog. You can spend around $25 for a cleaning kit and *maybe* get it to work, or get a whole new printer that is faster and better quality for less than $100.

Epson RX500, Paper Jam - printing couldn't start

Normal 0 I suggest you get a sheet of Card Stock (Heavy paper) and place it in the feed way. Then press the print button, applying a slight amount of pressure on the Card Stock so it will feed through the printer. The reason for this, is in some cases I have been able to clear the paper track of debris that was deposited there over time. Worth a try. I have fixed a number of printers this way saving costly repairs. Bud
