Try re-installing the newest driver, install Rosetta if you havent already. Then Remove and then Add the printer again in the System Settings. Works every time.

How to refill ink cartridge of Epson me32?


Follow these steps:
1.
Buy an Epson ink refill kit. A refill kit gives you all the tools you need to refill Epson ink cartridges. Kits typically include a syringe, rivets, ink, and instructions on how to refill the cartridge. You can find Epson ink refill kits on the Printer Filling Station along with instructions for each specific model (see Resources).
2.
Cover your workspace with a paper towel and fill up the syringe with the ink color you need. Epson refill kits will either include black ink or the color combination cyan, yellow and magenta. On average, you'll need 10 ml of black ink or 5 ml of color ink for Epson ink cartridges.
3.
Find the rubber seals on the back of the Epson ink cartridge. Insert the rivets into each seal.
4.
Empty the contents of the syringe into the Epson ink cartridge. You'll want to perform this action slowly in order to avoid spilling or overfilling the cartridge.
5.
Remove the rivets. Use tape to cover the holes you made in the ink cartridge. Return the ink cartridge to the printer. Allow the printer to go through several print cycles in order to ensure that the Epson printer operates properly.

How to install new cartridge


Make sure the printer is on and not printing. Have a new cartridge handy, as this installation should be done in one session.

Note if the "cartridge is low" or the "cartridge is empty" light is activated on the printer and follow the specific instructions carefully in the document below for each situation.

See "Removing and Installing Ink Cartridges" in the following document:

Need to replace ink cartridge, but how do I know which one needs replaced


What colors are missing?

Go to the control panel/ printers, click on the printer icon, lok for a maintenance tab, you should find help in that vicinity. You should find somethnig that will indicate the values of each color.

You didn't ask but ... my suggestion is that when you replace the cartridges, use exactly wnat Epson tells you to even if it means yhou have to spend an extra $20.00.

I have had nothing but pain as a result of trying to save a couple bucks by refilling or using third party cartridges.

That is MHO.

After cleaning my printer it still not prints the right colour it is mostly green no lights are flashing.I have an epson photo r300 printer



Forgive me for asking this, but roughly speaking about 80 to 95% of problems involving ink or toner are resolved by the following:
Are you using a factory new ink cartridge supplied by the manufacturer of the printer?
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.

Ink refill


You can do a search on Google using "Epson C84 Refill Instructions" which will produce plenty of hits. However, this one gives very clear instructions:

http://www.refillinkcartridges.co.uk/news/2008/10/16/epson-c84-ink-cartridge-refill-instructions/

If you only bought refill ink rather than a refill kit, and don't have rubber plugs, you can successfuly re-seal the filling hole using a small amount of epoxy resin e.g. araldite. This is easy to remove with a sharp knife the next time you want to fill it. Note the need for a cartridge re-setting tool - these can be purchased very cheaply on E-Bay.

The printer tells me all the ink cartridges are empty and refuses to print. All the cartridges have ink and are inserted properly


Are the cartridges refurbished, or refilled, or compatibles? If so it is possible that they are being misread by the printer or that they have not had the chip reset.

If they are genuine Epson carts and are all new then the issue mist likely lies withe the printer. Not a problem you can easily fix yourself. I would suggest you take it to an Epson dealer to be checked out. It may need a main board.
