    Same problem with red photos, however if printing on full size sheet of plain paper instead of 4 X 6 photo paper it is fine. Have tried all different paper selections under printer configurations with the same result.

My epson rx580 was also printing too red.  tried the nozzle cleaning, etc. several times.    didn't work.  i used paper towels and dabbed underneath the ink cartridges (removed) with the help of chopsticks.  then i took q tips to get the corners and other areas that glistened with wet ink.
replacing the current cartridges didn't help, so i changed all the cartridges (i use generic, so it wasn't too much of a sacrifice and the old cartridges were almost empty).  and voila!  the colors were all working again.  so that seemed to work for me.

I had a similar problem last week with the RED colour on my Epson R300, After many head-cleans, I decided to remove the print-head from the machine, wash it out under cold running water, dry it properly and replace in situ and it has been working well, even better than before...but are you BRAVE enough to do the same

No red color appear when i print pictures


The Magenta print head nozzle maybe blocked.

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

Printer is printing each color in 1/2 inch strips over the printed page.


sounds like the print head is malfunctioning. try running the head cleaner a few times from the settings menu, if that doesn't solve it you'll have to replace the entire head, at which point it may be more worthwhile to replace the printer.

Are the ink cartridges just a few copies, I have new copier and print is very faint


Hi,

You need to clean the print head and insert the cartridge and check, whether it is working at fine because a dirty printer header will not allow the right formulation of the basic cyan, magenta, and yellow to print and comes up with the yellow color and not red.
If you still face the problem after cleaning print head then you need to check for a clogged nozzle. Clean the nozzle and then try printing it will work fine now.
To clean the print head from the Utility section found in the printer driver, clean the print heads by performing a head cleaning followed by printing a nozzle check pattern. Furthermore, you can clean the print head by Using a cotton Q-Tip & Isopropyl Alcohol and gently rub the print head with alcohol.

Hope this helps.

If you still have any queries, please feel free to ask us.

Depending on when you last used your printer it may take a few head cleans before the ink prints. Print a nozzle check after each clean (uses minimal ink).

Also be aware each clean depletes your other carts as well.

The printer pulls the paper through and sounds like it is printing but nothing on the paper. Have tried the clean, deep clean, nozzle clean, print head alignment but nothing works.


Two possible solutions:
1) remove ink crg from the head, remove head and soake the nozzles ( small round holes ) in water few times and put it on absorbing cloth for a while to dry out.
Put it back in and do the cleaning few times.
2) replace the print head and purge unit.What isnt worthed.

PLSE HELP IM TRYING TO PRINT BUT NOTHINGS HAPPENING, IT IS ALL SET UP


test the printer first, so that we can isolate the issue. print a nozzle check to eliminate the possibility that the nozzles are clogged by dried inks. if nozzle check prints blank page or it printedr but w/ gaps or breaks, do head cleaning

Check the Print Head Nozzles: 1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX4400 Series. 3. Hold down the cx4400_ug.1.79.1.jpg Stop button as you press the cx4400_ug.1.79.2.jpg On button to turn the Epson Stylus CX4400 Series back on. Hold down both buttons until the cx4400_ug.1.79.3.jpg On light begins to flash, then release the buttons. cx4400_ug.1.79.4.jpg 4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines. cx4400_ug.1.79.5.jpg 5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean and you can continue printing. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head. Clean the Print Head Nozzles: 1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Hold down the cx4400_ug.1.80.1.jpg Stop button for at least 4 seconds to start the cleaning cycle, which lasts around 1 minute. cx4400_ug.1.80.2.jpg The cx4400_ug.1.80.3.jpg On light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on green when the cycle is finished. Caution:
Never turn off the Epson Stylus CX4400 Series during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it. 3. Run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean. You may need to clean the print head up to 2 times. You can also turn the Epson Stylus CX4400 Series off and wait at least 6 hours. Then try printing again.

Orangy red lines across the pictures


You will need to replace the cyan cartridge and do a print head clean. You can clean the head through the menu on your control console on the printer. In your control console, you will also find a thing called a nozzle check. If you print this out you will find that there are missing lines in your cyan. A printhead clean should fix this.

print a nozzle check from the maintenance menu

see which colours are missing, run through a few head cleans and print another nozzle check see if there is any improvement

also replace the cartridges of the missing colour they may be dried up. have seen this before where a 3/4 full black cartridge just completely stopped printing

if the problem still persists then get a syringe or an eye dropper and some form of spirit (I have used vodka in the past but clinical alcohol is recommended as not as sticky)

choose change cartridges from the menu then remove the power cord. with the cartridges removed you now have access to the printheads.

using the syringe (or eye dropper) place the nozzle on the spike that goes into the cartrige and inject a small amount of the alcohol leave this to soak for a few mins then mop up the excess with a cloth repeat this a couple of times put the ink back in power up and run another head clean (you can also put afew drops on the spounge that sits under the print head during the head clean

print the nozzle check again you shoudl see most of the nozzles are now working run another head clean if desired now try with a pic

have used this on various epson printers including a stylus 700 R340 & 360
