Have you tried to possibly replace the cartridges one at a time till you find the problem one.. or perhaps its the contacts on the cartridge that need to be cleaned.

Full cartridges = empty :S


Solution 1

Once you remove the ink cartridge from the printer, you can make use of the Isopropyl Alcohol, and put at maximum of 10 drops in the ink cartridge. You will find a hole there, in which the ink usually runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer. When done, you can put the cartridge back in the printer and run the auto cleaning process from the printer's option in order to clean the blocked holes of the cartridge. I would suggest you to run print tests first and once you are satisfied with the results, you can start using the printer normally.

If you want to go further:

* Remove the tank.
* Connect a hose directly on the inlet ink.
* Locate the sensor of reservoir and press it to make as if a cartridge is available.
* Close the cover of the print head and clean the head by injecting air (under pressure) through the pipe.
* Replace the tank up and do a test print.
* Repeat the procedure several times if the nozzles are clogged.


Solution 2

Using a syringe and some alcohol to unblock the holes can also be very effective.

* Step 1: Remove the cartridge from the computer
* Step 2: With the syringe, take in some alcohol and put in some drops in the tiny hole where the ink runs from the ink cartridge to the head of the printer.
* Step 3: When done, put the cartridge (only where the tiny holes are found) in some warm water. If some ink runs in the water, it means that the holes have been unblocked.
* Step 4: Hence, let the alcohol act for 20 minutes on the ink before putting the cartridge back in the printer.
* Step 5: Run some test prints before using the printer normally.


Note: I would suggest you to do an automatic head cleaning each time before any printing task. Hence it will reduce the risk of having the print heads blocked by dried ink.

Nothing will print; blinking amber light


Are you out of ink? when you open the lid to the printer while it is turned on look at were your ink cartridge stops and that will tell you if you are out of colour or black ink. Which light is blinking the one on top of the paper symbol or the one on top of the ink symbol. It may be that your cartridge either black or white just need to be taken out and put back in I found that if I wiped the bottom of the ink cartridge where sometimes you get build up that it would work again or give it a shake but make sure you cover up the bottom were the ink comes out before you shake it. Hope this helps!

Catridge won't go to right position


Please follow the steps below to replace one or more cartridges.
NOTE: It is necessary to have all four ink cartridges installed and supplied with ink in order for the unit to function properly. The unit will be in an OFFLINE state if the any of the cartridges are expended. This is a protection feature of the unit, to prevent air from being pumped through the print head.
Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.
**NOTE** To avoid damaging the unit, NEVER move the print head by hand.
1. Make sure the unit is turned on, and not printing. The POWER light should be on, but not flashing.
2. Lower the OUTPUT tray, and lift the scanner portion to access the ink cartridges.
3. Press and release the INK button. The print heads will move to the left, and the cartridge that needs to be replaced will stop directly beneath the OUT OF INK symbol. Make a note of which cartridge requires replacement.
4. Press and release the INK button again. If more than one ink cartridge is empty, the next cartridge will move under the OUT OF INK symbol. If no other cartridges are out of ink, the print heads will now move to the REPLACEMENT POSITION.
5. Open the CARTRIDGE COVER. Pinch the front and back tabs of the empty cartridge as you lift it out of the unit. Dispose of this cartridge.
6. Before you remove the new cartridge from its package, shake it four or five times.
7. Remove the new cartridge from its package, and lower it into the cartridge holder. Push down gently until the cartridge clicks into place.
8. Repeat steps 5-7 for each cartridge that you need to replace. Close the
CARTRIDGE COVER once all of the necessary ink cartridges are replaced.
9. Carefully lower the scanner, until it clicks into place
10. Press and release the INK button.
The ON light flashes and the printer makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the ON light stops flashing and stays on steady.
Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus printer while the ON light is flashing, unless the Stylus printer hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

Ink and paper lights flashing red and I cannot print


No body wants to take it to repairs, we all hate spending money if it can be avoideded. Do't fret. First, i would bet you have a paper jam that you have missed. This would stop the carriage and head cleaning. Open up the cover as if replacing ink. Get a torch and really thoroughly check for tiny paper jams or ujo's(unidentified jamming objects)check where paper goes too. Now close cover turn off, unplug, all cables, replug, turn on, try printing now. Post back if no good. Cheers lilacgerry
