Question about Epson Printer

Open Question

My hp5650 deskjet keeps printing a colour calibration sheet, sometimes every 2nd or 3rd sheet of regular printing. This is wasting my colour and black cartridges(genuine hp). What can I do to correct this problem?

SOURCE: colour printing

Check the following thread, it might apply to your problem. and just as a printer can be fooled to show a low level ink, I guess it can happen the other way around. http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t103191,p342983/Epson-Stylus-Photo-R300-InkJet-Printer.aspx Good luck

SOURCE: Won't print unless all ink cartridges have ink.

Try changing it in the properties section under device settings
or go to color management if you have it and change the setting to black only,.

SOURCE: Black not printing about every 3rd line

You have the classic single nozzle failure it appears. You say you have done a nozzle check. This should reveal that one of the black nozzles is not working i.e. there is a single gap in your nozzle check printout for the black nozzles. Now, this may be due to a blocked nozzle. Try the following print head soak process.

Turn the printer on, and as soon as the print head moves pull the power cord out of the back, or turn the printer off at the mains. You may now carefully move the print head by hand over to the left hand side out of the way. Look inside the print head parking area on the right and you will see a small rubber cup that comes up to cover the print nozzles when the head is parked (to stop it drying out). Use a syringe or dropper to fill this cup with head cleaning fluid or distilled water. DO NOT USE TAP WATER. Carefully push the print head fully into its parking position so that the cup full of fluid comes up over the print head. Leave this for at least 24 hours, then try a head clean again. If still nothing, report back

To stop auto calibration in toshiba color mfd


Better not to turn off the calibration, otherwise it will cause other errors.

If your colour printing is less than 5% ration, perform following. Turn the code 08-2692 "Prevention of color toner low density / ON/OFF setting" to ON, and then set number of sheets to be judged at the code 08-2693 "Prevention of color toner low density / Judged
number of sheets setting".
08-2693 u can put higher value such as 20 or above to delay the colour calibration.

Cannot detect allignment page


cannot detect alignment page- two possibilities-
1: hen the printer prints the alignment you can physically see the lines and colour shades being printed onto the sheet- this should then be scanned with the electronic eye built onto the carriage assembly- usually one automatic operation- if you can see a good clear image printed ( blocks/lines.boxes) and the printer cannot see the image it stands to reason the electronic eve ( spectrophotometer) is not reading the image correctly or at all, if however there are 'missing' areas of the calibration print then the problem lies with the printing side and I would recommend cleaning/ replacing the printheads as required

There was bits of paper, from a stuck edge from a sheet of business cards that I think are perhaps still in the printer. When I print a colour sheet the alignment is off, printing black and white seems OK.


What do you mean by alignment?
If you mean that the colours are misaligned, run a full calibration. Repeat it three times and then try your printing.
If bits of the business cards were left in the printer - it should affect the colour printing as well as B + W. You would also be getting paper jams.

Ink light keeps blinking on hp deskjet 5650. Followed HP's directions for cleaning cartridges, as the utility that came with the printer does not work on Vista, but still will not print.


Check 16V leg of power supply. I had same problem, but since the carridge and lights worked I assumed power supply was OK. Tried all kinds of things but nothing worked so I replaced the HP5650 with another one. Same problem. Changed power supply and both printers worked. When I put a DVM to the original PS I had the 32V leg but the 16V leg was dead. Who would have thought?

Printer keeps showing Office Jet 8500 Wireless


The printer wants to align the print cartridge, if you print out the alignment sheet, and then following instruction, place on scanner and scan it in etc, and it fails to callibrate, I have found it is because some of the information on the calibration page is not being printed correctly so therefore machine cant calibrate the print heads from it, this is normally due to poor quality cartridges or failing/empty print cartridge or cartridges, these use two I think, and I bet one of the colours from the colour isn't printing properly, replace colour cart if blacks look good. Below is a link to HP so you can see what a alignment page needs to look like to pass calibration, compare yours and you may find a colour is dodgy on it.

see HP's support information

The calibration sheet has poor color as well black, gray, blue?


First of all, you only need to calibrate the printer once (when you first set it up).
Second, you can calibrate it on regular paper.
Third, if you can print pictures without a problem, then you should not worry about the calibration page at all.

Printer will only print in purple/pink,enstalled new colour cartridge configured as required,still no change. help thank you


Print out a calibration sheet, either from the menu, or press photo and cancel at the same time. Your calibration sheet is probably missing a color. You should have black, blue, yellow, and magenta(pink). If you're missing any of these colors, your printhead is clogged. Try doing a printhead cleaning. Print another calibration sheet, if the color is still missing, you need a new printhead. Call Kodak.

Just trying to print 2181 Avery Laser Labels - "Paper Size or type is incorrect"


I have had this same problem trying to print DVD lable sheets.
I spent hours trying to work it out, HP support said it was the software(hmmm)
The answer to the problem is, the printer senses the printed block colour band on the preprinted lable sheet. I am using Fellowes - Neato DVD tempate sheets which have a black, block of colour on the leading edge, I'm not sure about Avery.
I found the quick fix is, turn the sheet around end for end against the manufacturers instructions. The opposite end is plain and goes through OK. You may have to calibrate the software to compensate if the printing starts in a different position this end, my sheets are the same within about 1mm.
You could also cut the block colour off the sheet if the direction was critical, and make allowance for the starting position.
I find the printer is good apart from this problem.
I hope this helps, it worked for me.
Regards, Rob.
