Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!

Epson Color Stylus 880 not printing, blank pages only


With some printers they need to be the recommended brand of ink cartridge. Are you using Epson's own cartridges? If not might be worth changing to them. It sounds as though the issue is with the cartidges and not the printer itself. Hope this helps.

How do you install ink of epson l110


Follow the given steps:

Step 1
Turn on your printer and open the hatch or cover where the ink is stored. Different printer models are configured differently and may take different types of ink cartridges. Check your specific model for exact instructions (see Resources for Epson support site).
Step 2
Remove any old cartridges by gently pulling up and away from the printer.

Step 3
Remove the tape from the new ink cartridge covering the contacts. Avoid touching the contacts with your hands or clothing as this may damage the cartridge.
Step 4
Install the cartridge in the appropriate slot by pushing gently down and towards the printer until it snaps in. Some printer models have a black cartridge and several color cartridges. Some models only have one black cartridge and one color cartridge. Be careful not to mix them.
Step 5
Align your new cartridge by following the printer's instructions. Test for proper installation by printing a test page. Navigate to "Control Panel-->Printers-->Epson-->Properties-->Maintenance-->Print Test Page." If the page does not print correctly, consult Epson support for help.

Why have my ink pads come to an end already and how do you change them i have an epson px700w?



Hi

You do not say which operating system you are using.


You do not say if you are using original Epson branded or compatible generic brand cartridges.

You do not say if the printer is new and if this is your first cardtridge change, or not.

Sometimes the cartidges that come with the printer are low volume, starter cartridges. The 2 types of cartridges have slightly different codes to distinguish them.

Some people prefer generic brand, compatible cartridges, which are generally cheaper but can be of inferior quality and some can contain inferior quality ink. Others prefer original Epson branded cartridges, which can be more expensive.

Some Epson printers can take both economy volume and high volume cartridges.

In Windows operating systems, generally:

Start > (Control Panel) > Printer(s) > right click on Epson PX700W icon > Printing Preferences > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions > head cleaning >print test page.

or

Print a document > Print Dialog Box > click "How To..." > Maintenance > Ink Cartridge Replacement > follow on screen instructions> head cleaning >print test page.

I replaced all of the cartridges with Epson, but the black won't print. After some nozzle checks, black is getting low and STILL no black printing occurring... what going on? Now the other colors are...


Nozzle cleaning uses a lot of ink, that's probably why the other ink cartridges are registering low on ink. Are you using refilled cartridges or brand new? Also, have you had the cartridges for awhile? I've found that the nozzles can become clogged either from not using the printer for awhile or because it's a recycled cartridge that didn't have the nozzles cleaned before it was refilled. When that happens, unfortunately, sometimes it takes a lot of cleaning cycles before the printing comes back. Let me know more about the cartridges you have.

I installed new epson ink cartrage, but printer has red x and tells me to change ink again.? Can i just change only the bkack ink?


Yes you should be able to just change the black ink cartrage, A lot of printer wont allow other third party cartrages, is it a genuine epson ink cartridge? if so try cleaning the contacts on the cartrage.

Epson CX 4300 printing problem


This can happen to cartridges with attached print heads. All cartridges are weighed and tested before leaving the factory so lack of ink isn't the problem. It usually has to do with the print head of the cartridge not having any ink to feed it. This happens because cartridges are kept flat or upside down for weeks or months before being used and the ink settles away from the print head. The easiest remedy is to open the box and stand the cartridge upright for a few minutes before using. Then get a damp paper towel, fold it into quarters and sit the cartridge print head down onto it. Hold the cartridge down to the damp paper towel for three minutes. This will help pull the ink out of the print heads, priming them and getting them ready to print. Finally, install the cartridge into your printer and print a few test pages.

I have an Epson CX4800 that just stopped printing. I followed the Troubleshooting steps on the Epson site (including new ink cartridges) but nothing has helped. the print job does reach the printer - but...


I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
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.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

I have learned from experience, that Epson does not like generic ink. You must use Epson Genuine Cartridges. Hopefully, you haven't screwed up the printer, like I did. I did try cleaning the heads and doing everything possible. Use 2 cartridges of ech set, for cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. ......But Nothing.
Had to go out and purchase a new printer.;
