This sounds like the chip on the ink cartrige, try cleaning the chip or replacing the red magenta ink. How a printer works, information from the Dynamic Link Libary is sent to the printer driver, this information is where to print on the paper and what colour to print, ie turning the ink jets on and off, the depth of colour comes from each ink by mixing the inks from the information in the photo or text. All ink problems are usually from ink faults, miss printing comes from driver information. Phill
Epson have there reset's pretty locked up, Agents have to register to gain axcess rights to software program tool that resets purge counter (waste count rset) , there are 7 pads in these printers just felt blocks that suck up ink and the electronic counter. all colours are mixed in felt so no draining guess you could wash them out but it is the counter that will stop you, wont go till reset. I have seen some after market ink chip resets but dont know if they work.
Epson about 6 months ago sealed up their tec support download system, now we have to identify agent and rep who is downloading the "eagle" software that is the Epson adj software that allows adjustment and reset of waste ink counter.
The printed colours are an "additive" mix of the "primary" colours in your printer.
So, when the colour ink-jet cartridge is "out-of-ink" on one (or more) of its colours, the "mix" will be off, and the "wrong" colour will be the result.
Change the colour cartridge.
Before changing it, run a "deep-cleaning" cycle, using the HP Support software that was installed when you installed from the CD-ROM that came with the printer, to "clean" any/all "clogged" ink-jets -- i.e., a clog could be preventing one colour of ink from being sprayed onto the paper.
The "secondary" colours are produced by mixing the "primary" colours. One of the "primary" colours inside your inkjet cartridge is out of ink, and the resulting "actual" mix is not the "theoretical" mix.
1 Could be toner on the contacts (inside the printer) that mate with the contacts on the cartrdige.
2 Are you sure they are 510 toners and not 500 ones ?? 510 toners have a chip that identifies the cartridge (Colour, Capacity) and maintains a count of the pages printed.
500 toners have a reset fuse that resets the toner counter in the printer, and a resitor that identifies the capacity
3 Are they new cartridges, remanufactured, or 'home refiled'.
if either of the later two, were the chips replaced ? - if not the cartridge still thinks it has printed its full life of pages.
