Just tried top new black cartridge in - seems ok, but scanner not working and shows red light over ink sign


Clean cartridge with sof tissue and alcohol and insert it again, carefully.
btw: are you sure ink is NEW and not a refill? Refills should be good too but sometimes they fail.

Have just tried to insert a new cartridge (31 photo) on my lexmark x3650 and it has displayed incorrect cartridge, despite having checked that this was compatible before hand, any ideas ?


Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.
Good Luck!!!!

Have not used my Epson R1800 for almost 6 months. When I turn on the power the printer head, with the cartridges, stayed at the very right end, not moving. The paper and ink lights flash and the head just...


Your User's Guide is available here:

http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/r1800_/r1800_ug.pdf

After leaving the printer inactive for a extended period you should expect the ink cartridges to be dried up and the print head 'gummed' in place.

You will need to refer to page 82 of the pdf, Cleaning the Printer.

As part of cleaning remove the existing ink cartridges and while the cartridges are removed try and clean the print head of any ink residue. Note that if the red light is on or flashing above an ink cartridge the printer sees it as empty (dried up).

The print head will not move if ink cartridges need replacement; replace ink cartridges according to the red lights, likely all. Press the ink button to see if the printer will begin the charging cycle. If all is well the green power light will stay on and the red ink light will go out.

If you do not get this desired outcome try Cleaning the Print Head, page 73 of the User Guide. Hold down the ink button when the red light is off for 3 seconds. Run a nozzle check pattern; if nozzels are not printing a clean pattern, repeat this process up to 3 or 4 times.

How do you load new printer cartriges


To replace an ink cartridge using the fonth.gif ink button, follow the steps below.
1. Make sure that the printer is on. The fontp.gif power light should be on, but not flashing.
2. Lower the output tray, then open the printer cover.
3. Press the fonth.gif ink button. The print head moves to the ink cartridge replacement position, the fontp.gif power light begins to flash, and the fonth.gif ink out light corresponding to the ink cartridge that needs to be replaced begins to flash or remains on.
4. Open the cartridge cover. Pinch the sides of the ink cartridge that you want to replace. Lift the cartridge out of the printer and dispose of it properly. Do not take the used cartridge apart or try to refill it.
5.Remove the new ink cartridge from its protective bag. Place the ink cartridge vertically into the cartridge holder. Then, push the ink cartridge down until it clicks into place. Do not apply excessive force to the cartridge.
6. When you are finished replacing the cartridge, close the cartridge cover and the printer cover.
7. Press the fonth.gif ink button. The printer moves the print head and begins charging the ink delivery system. The fonth.gif ink lights start flashing. This process takes about one minute to complete. When the ink charging process is finished, the printer returns the print head to its home position. The fontp.gif power light will stop flashing and remain on, and the fonth.gif ink out light will turn off. The fontp.gif power light will continue to flash while the printer is charging ink. Never turn off the printer while this light is flashing.

I'm trying to resurrect an old Epson 1280 Photo Stylus. I've changed ink cartridges, and run the head cleaning/nozzle check utility numerous times, but nothing prints out on any test pages, nor on any...


It's time to "cut your losses"; either the electronics that tells the inkjets when to shoot ink is screwy, or the inkjets are totally plugged, despite the "cleaning" cycles.

Responsibly recycle the printer, and buy a new printer.
Maybe, try to find another Epson that accepts the same ink-cartridges that you recently inserted into the old printer.

Inserted new cartridges..orange light still on


Try re-seating the ink cartridges. A lot of times, the electrical contacts on HP's ink cartridges do not make a solid connection.

Cyan or yellow ink cartridge light stays on. Can not print.


I had this problem after I ran a print cartridge out of ink on my HP business inkjet 1200. The Print color light stayed on solid, and would not print.  After much frustration and trying many other things, I purged the air from the print cartridge pump, and that cleared the problem. To get rid of the air (which I could see through the translucent wall of the pump) I inserted a syringe needle (without the syringe) into the nozzle of the cartridge, and expelled some ink with the air. This is messy, so I recommend gloves. I have been refilling my cartridges for years.

Inserting the ink cartridges!


I read one of the earlier posts which helped; the problem was that there is a dock built in to the left, but that is NOT where the ink goes! The real place hides to the right and only slides over when the printer is turned on. I had to almost force it to get it to stay to the left over the dock so I could actually insert the ink cartridge. The previous posters' soluntion, turning the printer on so the cartridge dock moves into view, is the only thing that worked for me.
