I have an almost full black ink and my color ink is running a little low.. but when I did a test page.. color prints, but the black does not.. I did a couple cleanings.. like 4 times.. and totally wasted...


because you don't use it enough the nozzel is probably blocked with dried ink, even the cleaning option wont work in this case, the only thing you can do is to get help from a professionnal technician to unblock the nozel, some times diping the printing head in hot water unglogges it and some times the technician needs to force a cleaning/ink solution through the nozel with a surringe, but what ever you do (DO NOT USE ALCOHOL) you will damage the print head.

My printer s only printing the main headers and footers of documents and nothing in between, also when i print from a pdf file the print is very faint with letters missing, help please


go into setup and try printing a test page, if this prints, the printer is ok and the source of your print is at fault. as for the missing letters and etc, it sounds like you are out of ink or the print head is dirty, try cleaning the head (the software that came with your printer allows you to clean the heads, but be aware this takes lots of ink to accomplish.

Have installed new ink cartridge. still getting low inw warning


Hi there,

The low ink cartridge warning is nothing to worry about. If it prints, it prints. Most modern printer cartridges have a chip on it which lets the printer know when the ink is low. When you run low on ink, it sends a message to the printer which sends a message to the computer telling you to refill the ink. The problem is that it doesn't go away once you refill the ink. It still prints, you just get a notification whenever you want to print. You can still use it up until that new cartridge runs out of ink. :)

I am printing 3 pages the print on the pages are faint in two of the 3 pages. It is not low on ink because it prints the last page just fine. It's faint like its out of ink but it is not out of ink . ...


Squeeze a running garden-hose, and the water will spout out, but at a diminished rate.

If your printer has "nearly" clogged ink-paths, then the first page or two will be diminished, until the ink "washes" the walls of the ink-path, to finally allow more ink to flow through than on the first page(s).

Use the HP "Printing Assistant" software to run a "print-head-cleaning" cycle, to try to "unclog" your printer.

Checking the Print Head Nozzles
If your printouts are faint or have gaps in them, some of the nozzles in the print
head may be clogged or ink may be running low in one or more of the ink
cartridges. Follow the steps below to check the print head nozzles.
1. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder.
2. Turn off the NX100 Series.
3. Hold down the y Stop button as you press the P On button to turn the
NX100 Series back on. Hold down both buttons until the P On light begins
to flash, then release the buttons.
Cleaning the Print Head 21
4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines.
5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean. If there are gaps or the pattern is
faint, clean the print head as described in the next section.
Cleaning the Print Head
If print quality has declined and the nozzle check pattern indicates clogged
nozzles, you can clean the print head. Print head cleaning uses ink, so clean it only
if necessary.
Note:
You cannot clean the print head if an ink cartridge is expended, and you may not be able
to clean it when a cartridge is low. You must replace the cartridge first (see page 23).
1. Make sure the NX100 Series is on and the B ink light is off.
2. Hold down the y Stop button for three seconds to start the cleaning cycle,
which lasts around one minute.
Caution:
Never turn off the NX100 Series during head cleaning or you may damage it.
3. When the P On light stops flashing, run a nozzle check (as described on
page 20) to verify that the print head is clean.
4. If there are still gaps or lines, or the test patterns are faint, run another
cleaning cycle and check the nozzles again.
Note:
If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning the print head two times, turn off your
NX100 Series and wait at least six hours to let any dried ink soften. Then try cleaning
the print head again. If quality does not improve, one of the ink cartridges may need to
be replaced. If that doesn’t help, contact Epson as described on page 31.
If you do not use your NX100 Series often, it is a good idea to print a few pages at least
once a month to maintain good print quality.
Good Luck and Please rate me.

Printing


Check on your color (not mono) ink levels. If they are low, this could cause this.

Technical info: On this printer, envelope text is printed in "composite black" which means we mix the colored inks to make black. This is done for envelopes and not letters because of the ink properties which resist water and smear. If one of the colors is low, you'll get something other than black.
