Cartridge dock malfunction?

I have a epson c48 series, which has worked previously, but since fitting new ink cartridges the printer is displaying a constant error (red light on top of printer). Each time the printer is restatrted it makes a chattering noise as if the print heads are trying to move but will not allow anything to be printed. Ay suggestions?

I answered a similar question 5 mins ago

It sounds as though your print head got jammed and did not resturn to its 'parking place'

Open the cover and look at the printing head (where the ink sits).

Is it located to the very far right or is a couple of inches out from the right?

If it is out, gently push it back to the right as far as it will go, then power it back on, it should do all of its checks as normal and the head will move a few times, but it should return to the far right and then be ready for printing.

Check there is no paper jammed anywhere and reload any paper.

Try to print again

Does it now work??

Epson stylus c48


Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.


Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now

If that does not work then follow the next step.


Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and store it in the same environment as the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series with the label facing upward. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area, and do not store the cartridge upside down.

If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.

Ink cartidges


Without knowing where your "compatible " cartridges came from, it's difficult to say. The correct cartridge types for a 1290 are T007 and T009. Do your cartridges with lugs show these numbers? In general, compatible cartridges will fit into the cartridge carrier without problem. Yes, Epson did fit plastic key lugs to their cartridges to artificially make cartridge A different to cartridge B, when in reality they were identical e.g. C46 and C48. Now, compatible cartridges for your printer are incredibly cheap on E-Bay. My advice is just to throw away the troublesome luggy ones you have and buy some more on E-Bay - they will fit without trouble.

Cartidge problem


Many "compatible" cartridges are badly manufactured or even labeld wrong. These can damage or block the connectors on Epson printers. your best bet is go buy new ink and try them, then if it still dont recognise, you could buy some ink cleaning cartiridges and give them a try - Google "Epson Print Head cleaning" Failing that go buy a new printer - Epson's are real cheap new.
