The nozzle check pattern should be complete, no gaps and breaks on the lines. Try to turn of highspeed printing, It is on the advanced tab of the printer properties window.

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

Printing in just black and white


Epson,. has it rigged, that you must have ink in all the cartridges.............! Doesnt make a difference, if you are printing black and white ONLY.

You have to replace them.

Good Luck......

I've got the Epson Stylus DX 8400 printer. when I put the cartridge,this message come up: "ink cartridges cannot be recognized." txs


I had the same problem too.  I went to the Epson website and they gave instructions to shake the cartridge 4-5 times prior to installing.   It worked!!!  I tried alot of things before I saw that I needed to shake the cartridge.  Definitely give this a try if you haven't already.

Printing in colour


You need a NEW Print head, the cartridge may also cause this problem, however most likely the
problem is from the printhead(it's the thing the ink tanks fit into inside printer). I hope this helps, good luck. You could also run a deep cleaning and use real Canon inks and that would help as well.

Epsom stylus C66 inkjet printer


Hi

This problem is probably caused by a blockage in the ink waste pads. Over time, particularly with increased nozzle cleans the pads get saturated. These can be replaced by an Epson Engineer at a cost of about £30-£40 but probably more effective to buy a new printer. This usually happens when the printer is between 2-5 years old.

Hope this helps

Epsom stylus all in one dx7450


press 'Control' + 'P' on a page (as tho you want to print)
click 'Maintenance'
there you'll find various options to clean heads etc, that should do it. tho it does deplete your inks considerably each attempt. & you'll probably find it needs more than one clean.Good luck!
