SOURCE: Epson Stylus C66 inkjet Printer does not print !

Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one. Now run a nozzle check using the status monitor (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Is there any sign of ink on the paper. Try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back.

SOURCE: paper jammed, upon removing paper, paper does not

My CX4800 developed the same problem. It was an excellent machine until then. I tried everything I could think of, and finally decided it must be the rather large feed in rollers at the right of the paper bin (one below and one above the paper) that had worn too smooth to pull the paper in. It works fine if I will give the sheet a "push" when it starts to go down

If it doesn't feed any paper at all (even regular sheets) and you already have tried loading just 1 sheet it still doesn't feed it...means that it is an issue with the hardware itself particularly the paper sensor. This is usally caused a paper jam and clearing out the jam in the incorrect manner. If your printer is still within the 1-year warranty from the date of purchase, I recommend that you contact Epson technical support for a replacement or service center referral in you area if beyond warranty period. They may also provide you with other options suitable for you needs

You probably have a sticky paper feed sensor or a small bit of paper stuck under or around the sensor. Unfortunately the sensor is really difficult to get too without pulling the machine apart, but can be done if you take your time. The sensor is visible looking into the machine just adjacent to the printhead when it is parked behind the metal support
and if u have any lines on the paper when you print, it is most likely paper fluff or a hair struck under the printhead. Put a small soft cloth on the paper feed platen and run the printhead over it gently. Turn the printer off and then open the cover. Turn the machine on and when the printhead moves off the cleaning station, pull the plug out (this won't hurt the machine). then place the piece of cloth on the platen and slide thge printhead over it. Don't force anything. There will be mild resistance but not much.
If this seems too much, then a service agent might be your best choice but expect to pay around $50-$60 for the job.

SOURCE: pper jams

The printer hardware should even this out when printing. You should also ensure the paper meets the automatic feeder requirements of the printer.
If printing is skewed, feeding multiple pages or jamming, please follow these instructions (use a regular letter size paper to test after doing the steps given below):
Please check to ensure there is nothing obstructing the paper feed mechanism down inside the printer where it is not easily seen. If there is nothing obvious, unplug the printer and remove the paper. Open the front cover and look above the steel rod. You should see a conveyor belt with rubber teeth on it, like a fan belt. Take the bottom part of that belt and move it gently to the left. The cartridges should come out with it. Make sure the cartridges can move fully from one side of the printer to the other. Check also the output rollers on the bottom of the printer for any blockage. If it is jamming under the carrier assembly, you may be able to fix it using the manual feed slot. Turn the printer off. Next take a #10 envelope and feed it through the left side of the paper feed slot (The manual paper feed slot is preferred, but the automatic feed will do if there is no manual paper feed for this printer) until it comes completely through the printer to the back of the exit rollers. Move it up and down and slowly move it over to the right side. If something is stuck under the black guide plate this may work it loose or you may have to feed the envelope through the front rollers and push your way backward (please be careful here).
Next, take a damp warm cloth and clean the rubber rollers in the automatic sheet feeder. Dust may be coating the rollers there and as they become less tacky, they cannot feed paper correctly.
Finally, turn the printer upside down and carefully shake it for 10 to 20 seconds to see if something falls out of the paper feed path. Then plug the printer back up, take your paper out and replace it with a fresh, small stack (about 5 pages) of paper. Quickly bend the stack in an 'S' shape a few times to separate pages. Make sure it is lined up on the right side of the paper feed and the paper guide on the left is snug on the left side of the paper. Then try to form feed again. If that works, then try to print again.

Mg5250 printer won't use other black ink when big one has run out.


The reason that there are two black carts is that one is for printing on standard paper, and the small one is for printing on photo paper. It's not a spare, and it is not supposed to use the small one when the large one runs out. You will need to replace the empty cart.

New HP 56 cartridge prints green


hello, are you sure its green, since this is a black in cart, only thing i can think of is machine not printing black , and the color ink cartridge is contaminated, this would be due to the docking area for the cartridge, on the left side of machine, there are 2 black rubber cups that the ink cartridges move over to seal. sometimes these cups have residual ink, which will contaminate the new inks. clean these black cups, and replace inks

Yellow not printing on test print -


You either have a leaking cart or the print head has become cross contaminated. Remove all the carts and check the feed hole under each of them. Make sure they are the color of the ink in the cart. Remove the print head and, using a damp cotton bud (water ONLY!) give the print head a clean. DO NOT use the same cotton bud for all sponges.

If that doesn't solve it then take the print head to a re-inking firm and have it cleaned professionally. Won't cost much and will hopefully solve the problem.

Canon Multipass F30 not printing


Did you remove the tab that covers the cartridge head where the ink comes out, if the drivers and software that you loaded on your pc work
good and your printer shows under device MGR, then it is the printer
itself,,most times you can not see how much ink in the cart,,,most are sealed,,,just try to put the cart in again and make sure it is locked in good,,try running the cleaning program with pc,,make sure the right
cart is in the right spot, bl in one spot and color in a spot.

Print faded after replacing black cartridge Brother 240C


The print heads don't appreciate being out of ink so the Brother printer has sensors to prevent that but the tape defeated that prevention. Maybe more cleanings or maybe a cartridge with printhead cleaning solution will help. Otherwise, I fear a new printer.

Printer won't print in black


This could be to several reasons:
1#  The black cart contains blue ink-> Change to a brand new cart.

2# The cart assy has a bottom that is a foil. Sometimes this foil leaks.
Ink will mingle: You need a new cart assy.

Run the cleaning cycle twice after inserting a brand new bk ink cart and print out a test print. If you still see blue instead of bk the assy is leaking.
BTW the bk is darker than blue (or better cyan). You must see bk! So it seems to be the prob with the right ink....
