Go to admin tools, then services, scroll down (in services) to print spooler. click stop the service (lh side) when that has done click start the service.
what this does is basically resets the printer memory.
good luck.

Installed a new cartridge and no imaging is printing on photo paper

Sounds like Blocked Nozzle heads assuming its making the correct noises when press "print" If Not
First ensure connected correctly:
Control panel / Devices and printers / select printer ( make sure its the default printer) right click on printer properties : Print test page.
Next repeat but right click Printing Preferences / maintenance / Nozzle check then Head cleaning.
This generally works with printers used fairly regularly.
Where printers left for long periods may have to resort to removing offending cartridge/s and using a syringe with warm water and flexible tubing to clear blocked print head (gently !) Kitchen towel underneath the print head will show when ink / water is clear. Usually have to replace with new cartridges :Then use nozzle check.

Epson workforce 545 is printing & coping blank

Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent ink drying out and blocking the print head nozzles.
If the print head cleaning maintenance routine does not clear the blockages, then print head needs replacing, but it may be expensive.
It may be more cost effective to buy a later model and better printer than replace the print head.

I have just changed the black ink carteidge on my Epson SX210 printer. The printed page now has some lines of clear text and other lines of missing or partial text. What is the problem and solution...

Click Start, go to Control Panel > Printers (Vista) / Devices and Printers (7) / Printers and Faxes (XP)
Right click on your printer, click Printing Preferences, click Maintenance, click Nozzle Check.
If the Nozzle Check pattern isn't complete, do a Head Cleaning and print the Nozzle Check pattern again.
You can do the Head Cleaning cycle 3 times, and make sure to print the Nozzle Check after each Head Cleaning cycle to see if there are any improvements.
You can also reinstall the inks by clicking Ink Cartridge Replacement and following the instructions.
If that does not work, please call your local service center or the store where you purchased the printer for warranty options.

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge for my Epson Stylus TX100, ink level is ok as the indicator shows. But i get blank prints for black, other colors are fine. What's wrong with the black ink...

There is nothing wrong with the black ink. Just run the head cleaning for better printing.

1. Go to printer and faxes
2. Right click your printer ( Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner InkJet)
3. Click printing preferences
4. Click Maintenance Tab
5. Click Head Cleaning
6. Run head cleaning for 5 times then try printing.

Ink not showing when printing

You may need to perform a head clean especially if the printer hasn't been used for a while.

The following is for XP but Vista and Win7 should be similar.

Click start/printers and faxes, right click on your printer ans select Printing Preferences from the drop down box.

Select the Maintainance tab click on head clean and follow that up with a nozzle check test page.

You may have to perform several head clean processes, once you get a clear nozzle check test page printed you should be good to go.

TIP use only one page for the nozzle checks as each check uses a page, Just reload the paper again until satisfied.

Can't print and when i did got green color

Check the level of your black ink. Double click on your printer icon. This should bring up Dell solution center. Click maintenance and it show the level of your black and color ink. If it appears you have black ink you might try clicking on your menu file, print click on preferences, check print black and white only. If you don't get a printed page. You're for sure out of black ink.
If you get a black printed copy, Double click on your printer icon, click on the maintenance tool to clean and test nozzles.

Printer will print with almost no ink on page in colour or b/w

You have to have both the cartridge installed and then
Run a nozzle check to make sure the nozzles are clean. Try running a printer self-test to make sure the printer is running properly without using the computer.

Macintosh 9.x or earlier: Open the File menu and choose Print. Click the Ink icon. You'll see a window showing the ink remaining in each cartridge.

Macintosh OS X: Double-click the Applications folder on your hard drive. Double-click EPSON Printer Utility, select the C42 Series printer in the Printer List window and click OK. Then click the EPSON StatusMonitor button. You'll see a window showing the ink remaining in each cartridge

Black stripes ove the page

Try cleaning your ink nozzles or ink jets. It sounds like you have a plugged nozzle or two. Your printer program should have maintenance options that allow you to test for plugged nozzles and clean them.
In control panel, open the printing/fax icon, right click on your printers icon, left click properties, then on the bottom of the page the panel that opens you will see a button that says printing preferences, and that should open your print program.
