using your printer once a week makes your printer clog even if you use original cartridges i prefer using it once a day, if you dont have anything to print, just turn on your printer and it will automatically head cleaned its head

2 red lights are blinking!!!!!


is both the light blink the same time or blink alternate ? if blink the same time, it's probably a fatal error..
if blink alternately then the waste ink counter need to be reset and the waste ink pad need to be replaced.

Replaced the ink cartridge now it will not print


*** I'll be more than happy to help you on that.
there is a great possibility that the nozzles of your printer are clogged by dried inks.maybe cause by the previous inks that you just replaced. we can check that by printing a nozzle check pattern.

1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Turn off the Epson Stylus NX110 Series. 3. Hold down the nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.1.jpg Stop button as you press the nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.2.jpg On button to turn the Epson Stylus NX110 Series back on. When the nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.3.jpg On light begins to flash, release the nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.4.jpg Stop button. nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.5.jpg 4. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines. nx110_tx110_ug.1.98.6.jpg 5. If there are no gaps, the print head is clean and you can continue printing. If there are gaps or the pattern is faint, clean the print head. Using the Control Panel 1. Load a few sheets of plain paper in the sheet feeder. 2. Make sure the Epson Stylus NX110 Series is on and the ink light is off. 3. Hold down the nx110_tx110_ug.1.99.1.jpg Stop button for three seconds to start the cleaning cycle, which lasts around one minute. The nx110_tx110_ug.1.99.2.jpg On light flashes throughout the cleaning cycle and stays on green when the cycle is finished. Caution:
Never turn off the Epson Stylus NX110 Series during a cleaning cycle or you may damage it. 4. Run a nozzle check to confirm that the print head is clean. You may need to clean the print head up to 4 times. You can also turn off the Epson Stylus NX110 Series and wait at least 6 hours. Then try printing again.

Have not used my epson cx7400 printer in months and the printer head is probably clogged up. Tried installing ink but did not fix problem


Here is a Link that would help you. You can also download the manual if you need. http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=FAQs&oid=89902&prodoid=63069503&category=Products If you find this helpful, pls rate me. How long should an ink cartridge remain in the printer? When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head. I know you said you changed the ink, but you must use Genuine Epson Cartridges. Epson Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.
These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can MAKE YOU & keep selling the ink cartridges.

Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it. Gets costly.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

We changed the ink and the red light and green


Some times you need to find the epson tools that comes on the CD to reset the printer. If you have upgraded the computer you may need to update your drivers at the epson sight.
Once you have opened the epson tools try cleaning the print heads.
then it should reset the inking system to default and read the new cartridges. If this doesn't work try shutting down the printer and removing the ink cartridges, restart the printer and allow it to find no cartridges the go through the process of reloading the ink cartridges again and cycle the printer.

If this doesn't work you may need to try and find a cleaning cartridge for the print heads. Since the printers always check to see if ink is getting to the print heads if there is no ink flow it will always come up like there are no ink cartridges installed.

Hope this helps


Make sure paper is in properly they can be very picky about that.
Try turning it off wait three minutes and turn back on.
Then
Push Paper refill button Wait for cycle and see if paper light stays off if so...
Push the ink button

Cleaning cycle a few times. Get a CISS for your printer. It will save you TONS of MONEY, never change a cartridge again and it will pay for itself in a month.

There are stripes through the whole page of what I'm printing


Hi, its the print heads are clogged up, couple of things to try, head cleaning would be the first option, right click on your printer status program ie on the bottom right of the screen the small icon, and you should find maintenance or head cleaning, try doing this a few times, print something out see if any change, if still no success, change the ink cartridge, if still no success last try would be http://www.supermediastore.com/cleaning-cartridge.html its a head cleaning cartridge to try and clean the blocked print head, if none of the above work you would be better replacing the printer as epson charges £75 + vat to repair any printer, the last time i tried to buy print heads at trade they were about £48+vat & delivery and is really a nightmare to fit with epson,most new epson printers seem to only last about 15 months on average but its the amount of money you can save through using compatible ink, as we only sell epson printers ourselfs and this happens with 99% of returned printers..

Happy New Year
