Re: r300 does not print new colours

Could be a clogged nozzle for those colours. You can get special cleaning cartridges that contain a mild solvent that should be able to disolve the dried up ink to get things flowing again.

Printer not printing black

First of all the print head is clogged just because you have tried to print repeatedly while some of the cartridges are empty. This results ink burn in the nozzle and clog. My recipe: Heat some drinking water in the kettle (70-80 C). Put the head in it and shake gently several times until ink is completely clean (10 minutes). Change the water do the same again. Change the water again (70-80 C) this time put a spoon full of apple vinegar (becomes a natural acidic solution very dilute) shake again, clean with cotton stick. I did it and started to love my mp800 again as much as I just bought it, all colours come back and started to print superior photos again......

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.

Print color different than on-screen color

Doe sthe nozzle check show ANY gaps? If not the n the colour difference is most likely down to the colour profile on your system in the software you use.

See if the software or printer vendor offer a colour profile for your OS.
