Could be defective printer or maybe that is just the way it works and is unsatisfactory. If not happy with results try another printer after returning the Epsom. Check consumer reports for printers that do great job on photos and go that route.
My guess is that the CYAN cartridge has run out (or stopped printing due to nozzle blockage), hence the yellow & magenta appear much more dominant. Check the ink levels in the cartridge &/or get the nozzles cleaned.
theres your first problem, restrain from using non original/genuine inks because it might lead to a more serious error in the future, one solutions you could do is to check the nozzle of the yellow ink, it is the pear shaped just where you insert the ink cartridges, check for clogs, there are about 4 to 6 holes, all of them should be clog free. try also cleaning the copper terminals, it is where the copper terminals of the cartridges meet, clean it with a cotton cloth, try NOT to touch them, specially with an oily hand. it is where the signals from the printer relays to the cartridge when to spray ink.
umm... this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart frombuying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to preventthe coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are notused for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epsonrecommends printingat least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing inblack only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Wheneverthe printeris turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inksget used over time even though they are not used for printing.
Check your installation in extended adjusting the seal, default all in zero, arouse reinstall driver of the printer. Change adjusting the seal from panel of management. But can was simply littered cartridge and at melange colour no other colour.Good luck
Hi, sounds like a dodgy ink cartridge. I would purchase a new black cartridge and fit and try that. Refilling epson cartridges isn't a good idea, if you can't afford originals, but compats instead of refilling them. a good place to buy is www.choicestationery.com I've never had any problems with their carts.
hello, I hav Epson Stylus Dx4050, there is black ink,but the colours finished and it stopped printing, so please if you could tell me if the 4 colours must be there to print or what can I do?
Thanks very much
you could have one of several problems here.
i,d suggest printing several test pages, and observe whether the red comes through after this.
if this does,nt work remove the cartridge, and replace ensuring the cartridge goes in with a firm click.
finally if you have the original software installed for the printer, try a head cleaning operation.
