We are going through ink like crazy on our Epson 600 Workforce fax. It's supposed to yield up to 500 copies, and we just replaced cartridge yesterday and it already says ink low. Can I change a setting to use less ink?

    We don't have a manual. Where do I set "draft"? I can't find it in the set-up.

Just so you know, the # of copies are based at 5% coverage, so make sure that is whats happening. When you are telling the printer to print, in the printer drivers, you can select rough draft type printing where it will use less ink.

Also, make sure your not using generic ink.

Why doesn't my black ink work in my Epson WorkForce 600 series after replacing the black ink cartridge?


The Epson printer may only use genuine ink cartridges which contain a chip so that you cannot fill the cartridge with ink or use non genuine ink cartridges.

OR

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.

My Epson Workforce 600 printer will not print black ink. I have changed ink cartridges several times and have cleaned the heads/nozzles several times. What can I do to fix this?


It appears that your printer is malfunctioning and will require service. Contact Epson and verify if your printer is still under warranty so they can replace it. Otherwise, have your printer check by the nearest service center in your area.

Ink leaking from right hand side where all the cartridges are. 1 year old machine never a problem until now model 610 fax/printer/copy


When the print-heads are in their "resting" position, they are over the "waste-ink-absorber".
If that absorber is full, it will leak. So, take some paper towels, or sponges, and press them on top of that "waste-ink-absorber", to remove the ink.

I just replaced my ink cartridges for my Epson Workforce 600 printer and the magenta and yellow colors do not print. The status shows that both are still full of ink, but when I do the nozzle check,...


Try "Nozzle cleaning" and if the problem persist, try "Deep nozzle cleaning". Try them only once or else the ink will run out very quickly.
If the ink cartridges are not genuine Epson, remove them and buy genuine cartridges. If needed, repeat the procedure with them.
Non-original consumables very often clog the printhead.

I cant change ink cartridge in my workforce500. the cartridge wont center itself so that i can open it and replace the ink


Epson has a Trouble Shooting Guide. Make sure that the 500 model number is showing on the top left. Select installing cartridges. Select Holder won't go to position. Then follow the rest of the instructions.

Here is the USER'S GUIDE, with instruction for changing the cartridges.

Hope this gets your printer working.

Good Luck
