Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, skip lines, put stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

I have an Epson RX680 the black and yellow ink are not printing after trying several print head cleanings and even replacing the cartridges (even though they were better then half full)


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.

The print quality was poor, not all lines printed perfectly, every 6th line was ****. i changed the print cartridge even though it was half full, not it doesnt' print black at all


Printer heads are more than likely dirty. Either use the epson software that came with the priner or right click the printer in the printer section of your PC and locate a head cleaning procedure and run it a few times.

If all else fails, they do sell long Q-tips in PC shops that will allow you to reach in and manually clean the head.

Previous hardened ink will act like a glue covering the heads and do this.

Epson also used to sell a paper product that ran through and removed dust and debris.

At any rate, it needs to be cleaned and I can't pinpoint which way, but that's it.

Epson r220 prints black lines through photos ect anything I print


The problem caused by waste ink at bottom plate arround head sprayer. Clean it. Turn off printer. Move head to center. Put wet tissue (with warm/hot water) upper head cleaning pad. Move head to right (parking position). wait for 10 minutes. Repeat it for 2-3 times. Check nozzle.

Lines on prints


Hi kids! I decided to have another go at sorting out my 'lines' problem and have sorted it. See if this might work for you: I had previously done the head cleaning via the printer itself - holding the central ink/paper black button for 3 secs. This time I went to the Epson 1290 window on my Mac and clicked on the utility box. Though the Nozzle check print came out fine I went ahead and did the head cleaning in this box. The next print came out almost perfect so I ran the Head cleaning again and it printed a perfect print. Hope this might work for you. Keep on trying! All the best. Trant
