Have you been using Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

The problem I'm having is that whenever I try to make a print in color, the image or text comes out with lines running through it of very offset colors. I'm using a MX330 and thought the problem...


This is an ink jet printer. The lines are likely caused by one or some of the microscopic ink nozzles being clogged. How long has it been since the ink cartridges were replaced? If they are old, some of the ink has dried up in the nozzles, clogging them. Some printers have a clean print head function. If this one does, use it. If not, try replacing the print cartridges. If this printer has a separate print head and print cartridges, just replace the print head(s).

How do I print onto cd?


Please follow these steps:
1.
Turn your printer on. Most power buttons are located on the top of the printer. Press and hold down the button until its LED light turns green.
2.
Choose the image or text you desire to print onto the CD.

When the Pictures folder opens, click on the image you desire to print onto the CD to enlarge it. If you are planning to print text onto the CD, open the text in Microsoft Word or any other desktop publishing program you may have on your computer.
3.
Insert the CD into the printer. Press the "Eject" button that can be found on your CD printing enabled printer. A CD tray will open automatically. Place the CD into the tray print side up. Close the CD tray. The printer will begin working to detect the CD. Once the CD is detected, your printer's LED light will either flash green or another indication color.

Print the image or text onto the CD. For image printing, click on the enlarged image's tab that will be on your computer's taskbar. You will see a horizontal row of action icons below the image. Click on the thumbnail image of a printer to print the image onto the disc. For text printing, simply click on the "File" action on the navigation menu in your desktop publishing document. Click "Print" within the "File" drop down menu. The image or text will be sent to the printer once you choose the "Print" action.
5 .
Remove the CD from the printing tray. The CD will be fed through the printer during the printing process. Once the process is complete, the CD will come through the bottom of the printing tray. Take the CD from the tray when it reaches the bottom.
The above mentioned steps must help you. In case of any difficulty please revert back.

The printer driver must be set to print text with the K resin panel.
If the text is part of a bitmap image and not a true-type font then it will print from the coloured panels and be dark grey.
To create the correct green on the card you need to change the RGB values so it prints correctly but look wrong on the badge design program. Even different printers print the same colour differently.

HP 1600 color laser printer--colors are out of sync


Check the following information please.

General print quality issues

Solving issues with color documents This section describes issues that can occur when you print in color. Color document issues Problem Cause Solution Only black is printing when the document should be printing in color.

c00659983.gif Color mode is not selected in your program or printer driver. Select color mode instead of grayscale mode. The correct printer driver might not be selected in the program. Select the correct printer driver. The device might not be correctly configured. Print a Configuration page.

One or more colors are not printing, or are inaccurate.

c00659984.gif Sealing tape might be on the print cartridges. Verify that the sealing tape has been completely removed from the print cartridges. The media might not meet HP specifications. Use a different paper, such as high-quality paper that is intended for color laser printers. The device might be operating in excessively humid conditions. Verify that the device environment is within humidity specifications. One or more print cartridges might be low. If you are using non-HP print cartridges, no messages appear on the device control panel or in the HP Toolbox. Replace any low print cartridges. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. A color is printing inconsistently after you load a new print cartridge.

c00659985.gif Another print cartridge might be low. If you are using a non-HP print cartridge, it might be low or empty but you will receive no indication. Remove the print cartridge for the color that is printing inconsistently and reinstall it. The control panel is set for override. Replace low or empty print cartridges. The colors on the printed page do not match the colors as they appear on the screen.

c00659986.gif The colors on your computer monitor might differ from the device output. Select Screen Match in the Color tab of the printer driver. If extremely light colors or extremely dark colors on screen are not printing, your software program might interpret extremely light colors as white or extremely dark colors as black.

c00659987.gif The media might be too rough. Use a smooth paper or print media, such as a high-quality paper that is made for color laser printers. Generally, smoother media produces better results. Repetitive image defect ruler Use a repetitive image defect ruler to measure occurrences of repetitive image defects to help solve image quality problems. Place the ruler next to the first occurrence of the defect on the page.

Printer output has shadows, blurring, streaks, lines, poor color


Seem like blocked hole(s) on the color print head...
Most likely if there is a deep clean option then do it (may need a few times to unblock a hole or never).
Also get the printer physically cleaned up if you can see dusts inside (vrtical lines on color bars).

Stripes on Images only - Text OK


Perhaps the CMY color heads need alignment. If you have not already done so, run a head alignment from the driver maintenance section. It will print out a page containing several lines and text, and request you select the closest-aligned images. After this is done, do another image print to check for improvements.
Normally, the printer uses the black cartridge for text and the CMY inks for images (even for black on photo and specialty paper). So when you are printing normal text pages on plain paper, only the black ink is used. A good check for this would be to print a normal text page, but select photo paper in the driver to trick the printer into using the CMY inks to make a substitute black text page. If this looks ok, then you are having issues other than cartridge alignment.
