The ink path probably dried out. Sometimes repeated cleaning cycles will fix it but at expense of wasting a lot of ink.

You might want to get a refill kit and use syringe to force cyan ink into that channel or purge the channel with the cleaning fluid.

Epson ink cartridges, always empty?


Epson has gone to great pains to ensure that third-party cartridges dont work. They really did a good job. Sometimes their printers wont even recognize genuine Epson cartridges. I saw a CX8400 with a brand new cartridge claim it was out of cyan ink after printing one 4 x 6 photo. Then it would recognize any cyan cartridge. It had to go back to Epson for replacement.

I had the blue ink leak inside my C6180 printer and now it won't print in blue. How do I fix this? Thanks


What you really saw was a really light blue or "cyan" color. Right?

Replace the Cyan Ink cartridge.

Your Cyan ink cartridge leaked it's ink out, and now it is dead.... Bad cartridge, if it was "brand new" (or nearly brand new), ***** to the retailer that sold it to you, they should replace it for free. Have invoice handy, ask to speak to the "manager" or "boss" (a "supervisor" is still a "peon", and can't make decisions like that).

If they give you the run-around, ask to talk to the OWNER! If they shut u down (and/or **** u off), and the store is local (within driving range) bring the printer into the store (dripping ink and all) and raise holy hell. You'll be surprised how fast they "throw" ink cartridges (even new printers) at you to get rid of you 8^). Nothing smells of death more, to a sales person or manager, than an irate customer on the sales floor!

BTW, You'll want to clean up any excess "blue"/cyan ink that was leaked inside your printer, or you'll get ink blotches on you printouts.

Let me know if this help ya! Cheers...

My cyan cartridge shows as empty. My black


No. You need all the cartridges installed with functioning chips for your printer to work. The reason why you need all the colors when all you print is black is because a small amount of color prints when you print black. The manufacturers want to make up their R&D costs on the printers by selling lots of expensive ink.

I notice that you saw error message 'check ink c'. This means the printer want you to observe cyan ink cartridge. so,what happen before this message appears?. Please make sure that cyan ink is not empty. if you are sure the ink not empty,then remove cyan ink and reinstall it,else try dry clean ink cartridge contact or you may use contact cleaner before reinstall it. if you have have another cyan ink cartridge that is in good condition,compare it. if this works,means cyan ink cartridge is faulty then you need to replace with the new one. but if the problem still persist,it may caused by carriage unit or logic board problem.

Cyan ink cartridge is flashing, only prints in blue.


Hi cmwierson, I would suggest you update your printer drivers, try this, follow instructions exactly as written:

Create a new folder on your desktop and name it newhpdrivers(substitute your manufacturer in new name). Un-intall printer and printer software completely. Go to manufacturers website and navigate to their drivers/downloads or support menu. Select your model, choose the relevant software and download to the new folder you created on your desktop(watch for the light yellow bar at the top of window viewing pane, click on this and choose – download file - . Power down your computer. Reconnect the printer to the computer and turn printer on. Power on pc. Windows will detect new hardware and ask if you have the manufacturers install cd or a location to check for install files. Direct the wizard to your new software, follow the rest of the setup instructions and your done.
