Question about Epson Stylus Photo R340 InkJet Printer

2 Answers

We have a epson stylus r340 and we cant get it to print black. we thought that it was out of ink and replaced it, unfortunately we found out that the cartridge had 40% ink and the new cartridge will not work. there are no error messages on the printer and everything else seems to work fine. just cannot get the black to work.

In Control Panel->Printers right click on your printer and select Properties. Here you can set the print mode as Black or Auto. Then it will print black.

Hello. Your print head must be cleaned which will also clean the ink nozzles. Here is a link to your manual. Open the link and follow the procedure on page 11. Repeat the cleaning until the black ink prints. http://files.support.epson.com/pdf/r340__/r340__pg.pdf

Can i print without using my black ink


Unfortunately, you cannot print without using black ink on Epson, and most other, printers. Some printers allow you to use a combination of the color ink to create a "false black". But, the Epson Stylus C46 cannot do this.
Time to pick up some ink!
Thanks for using FixYa

Epson r340 service required


I searched the manual and all online help from Epson. There is no detail for the problem, they simply say if you get that error, contact Epson support.

Screen says "service required" Printer will only turn on, that's it.


Its Epson design. It means it already reach it maximum reliable printing service. But you can extend its service using Epson resetter. Its a third party software utility program. It will reset its counter to zero count again. Counter resetting is on the printer itself not in the ink cartridge.

Epson stylus c45


epson.com, actually you can print using black ink only, but you have to reset the color ink for it to register as full. :) or you can freeze the ink counter using the ssc service utility before the other ink rans out. :)
