Photo printing when printing a photo from my computer, the photo paper comes out saturated in ink. Just a black blob dripping with wet ink. It worked fine just a couple days ago.

    Thank you for responding. Yes, the black tube is in place. Nothing looks out of place. Printing text is fine. Text prints fine in all colors. Just photo printing is a black blob the size of the photo that I am printing.

    open the cover to view the ink cartridges, if you can move the inks and heads to the left of the case, if it will not move then turn it on then wait for it to come to the middle then turn it off. on the very end; where the heads sit when not in use there is a white plastic part, attached to that is a plastic tube black in colour. is this attached if not do so. im not an A+ expert on these printers but this maybe your problem. any other guys wishing to spread wisdom please do so.

What program are you using to print out photos?
Try to take the ink cartridge out and put it back in.
Go to this link, instructions on how to replace ink cartridges
http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/cx66__/cx66__pg.pdf
And then try to print. If you have the same problem, try to use another program that you can print pictures from.

Ink saturates the photo paper causing blobs of wet ink to ruin the print job.


Remove the cartridges. After this, remove the print head unit. Take some soft cotton tips and alcohol. Clean the print head unit until there is no ink on the lower end of it. Dry the print head of so that no alchol remains on it. next replace the print head and cartridges in the unit. Run the printer through a cleaning and alignment then print a test page.

if the problem persists, you can contact kodak and get a new print head from them. Sometimes you can get one for free, other times you may pay 1/2 the price of the printer. Having the print head seperate is how the ink for these are so cheap.

How do I balance colour on the printer for photo printing?


Have the photo printer run a test/alignment page.
Make sure you are not running out of one color.
Anytime the image runs heavy on one color typically means another color is empty or low and not blending properly.

You can also check the settings to see if it is printing in Draft/Normal/Best Mode. Depends on the settings and application used to control this. Best uses more ink and of course provides the best image. Photo quality paper if you want the best looking pictures. Printing on standard bond will cause some bleeding and saturate the paper. (Looks feels wet) This will give the image a slight blurring dull look.
Depends on the quality of the paper used also.
Hope this helps!

If you aren't currently, use the cartridge that the printer's manual says is for photos. Photo paper requires a different kind of ink.

Printer does not print


In this case what i would request u to do is.......
Take out both the catridges from the Printer.........
Take 2 Paper Towels one should be wet with Luke warm water and the other one should be dry...........
Take the Colour catridge first turn it upside down and u will see a small copper plate on the catridge from where the ink comes out.......
Place the wet paper towel using ur thumb on the Copper plate and press it a lit bit for 10 Seconds......
Now remove it and see whether u see any ink on the paper towel..........
U should see some ink on it now place the dry paper towel on the ink catridge in the same way........
Now do the same procedure again..........
Do the same procedure twice on the Black Catridge.................
Now take the dry paper towel and turn the direction of the cartridge so that u can see a Copper plate on it with small boxes just clean that copper plate with the Dry Paper Towel..........
Know insert both the catridges inside the Printer....
Now try to Print.........
This Should Work.........

Epson 1400 wet black blocks of ink output


When this happen it means that your Fuser assembly and printer interior has toner contamination and build up. You can replace your fuser or run some more test print. Usually, the printer corrects itself.

Looks like too much ink


Try a different brand of photo paper, some of the papers will cause this. Especially the lower cost photo papers.

Ink super-saturates on glossy photo paper


Is it the fact that it super saturates, or is the paper wrong for the machine, and it is not soaking in?
