Remove your printer from the PC and uninstall the printer software. Now reinstall the printer software and connect the Printer to be detected and installed. Check printer properties to see the ink levels.
Use head cleaning before a test is taken . It is possible that the head is not reacting to the need of the command , can be an issue with ink drying , can also be poor ink cartridge contacts

My Espon R230 printer has problem with Light Magenta colour, i bought new cartridge but then also light magenta nozzle check is not clear, i think it is printer problem, please help me how to solve it


First you could do a printer test. The printer will print a small pattern with all colours making it possible to check if and if so, what nozzle are blocked. Sometimes the cleaning cycle will help, but sometimes there is just some dirt under the head. Please don't try to remove it with tools if there is something. Just use a thick piece or printing paper to solve that problem. Please check the manual for details. Perhaps the epson site can help you with that:

Epson Stylus R230 Light Magenta Not working


Print first a nozzle check pattern, self test which they say. Check your manual for your printer, it should be accessible from that if you dont have any manual, go to the epson website and download a manual. Usually the self test would go like this.

While the printer is turned off, you press and hold down the paper feed button, continue holding it down while turning on the printer. It will print the nozzle check pattern standalone. If you see all the colors then the issue your having is a color management issue, if you do not see the cyan, magenta, yellow, black, light magenta and light cyan from that test; then you will need to do 3 consecutive times of Head Cleaning from the maintenance program in your computer. If you have a windows xp it goes like this.

Click on start go to control panel - printers and faxes -
you right click on your printer icon and select printing prefrences. From there, go to maintenance tab and click head cleaning, go through that cycle 3 consecutive times and see if it improved. Good luck....

Epson Stylus R230 Light Magenta Not working


I would recommend cleaning the contacts (brass colored connections) with an eraser if might resolve the issue. It that does not resolve the issue it might be one of two other things. Either the printhead is cloged or the cable to the printerhead is damaged.
Good luck
