I have just changed two colour cartridges with epson cartridges, and now the printer doesn't print - the paper comes out with nothing on it.

    i sorted it by turning the machine off, pressing down on both on/off and maintenance buttons, switching the power back on, holding buttons down for further 10 seconds and then letting go. It works now. Don't know why, but many thanks for looking at the problem.

First you clean the ink system assembly (Pump and cap) and clean all pipe through porous pad. Or take out the cartridges. Take a piece of soft cloth. Dip it in water. Try to clean the head. Or use the printer software to make Cleaning and Calibration, you can find this under Maintenance label of the printer software.
If problem not solved you need to change print head or send it for repairing.

Thanks for contacting

How do I stop lines on the epson 4515

Cleaning only helps if there is still ink in the cartridges.
If you print the nozzle check, you can see what colour is having problems to print.
And when you are sure there is still ink in the cartridge, you could try to remove the cartridge, and in the printer, where the cartridge was, you could put a drop of cleaning fluid in the nozzle on the bottom. Then try printing one or two pages on full colour, till the ink starts coming through.

Be aware, sometimes just a bit of dust is traveling wit the print head, blocking the ink too. But then you see smear on the paper.
Always be sure the underside of the print head does not have debris traveling with the head.
Almost impossible to see, but epson sometimes delivers special cleaning paper. It is a pice of paper, with a special pice of sticky tape. Sometimes it comes with the Ultra Glossy Photo Paper. Use it.

Epson SX110 printer does not print

I assume from your description that the printer is going through the motions of printing but not putting ink from one or more colours to paper. If this is the case please it is likely that the printhead has developed a slight blockage or ceased to function.

-Print a nozzle check from your printers software. This will show you clearly which colours are not printing correctly.
-Run 1-3 head cleans using the printers software with a nozzle check after each one.
-If this doesn't resolve the issue it is possible you simply have a defective cartridge and I would recommend replacing it and trying again.
-If this doesn't help or the problem is across all colours it is likely the printhead is severely dried or has reached the end of its life. So I would either take it to an Epson service center or if the printer is not worth the expense you just keep running head cleans (with 5-10 minute gaps between cleans).

Hope this helps.

Bad printing after changing 2 inks also clicking noise not before

shouldn't be the ink. I assume you have an epson as in the picture. my ink refill kit mentions that "epson intellidge chipped cartridges" require an "ink level resetter" to complete the kit. So if you have these cartridges even once refilled the chip tells the printer the cartridge is still empty so you'll need to reset the chip with the ink level resetter.

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.

Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Nothing prints out on paper.

Did you remove the little sticky tabs from each new cartridge? They allow air in, and ink out.

Have you removed the tear off tape from top of cartridges, it lets the air in and ink flows.

I recently changed the colour cartridge and now the printer wont print colour. Black works - ish. I have troubleshooted and did everything recommended eg clean print heads, nozzles, align heads etc....

Please see the online guide at:

and click on Replacing Ink Cartridges. To change a cartridge before it is low or empty you must press the maintenance button AND the power button at the same time, or use the print utility.

If the new cartridge also fails to produce print, come back with a new comment for further help.
