Calibrating monitor may help. Are you sure that what you see on the monitor is e.g grey (only K?) or is it mixed. If you print 100m100y is this tomato red? Are you working in RGB or in CMYK?

SOURCE: Epson d88 printer just floods the paper with ink

Sounds a lot like you have an ink pressure issue and at a guess you are using a CIS (Continuous Ink Supply) system.

I would refer back to the documentation that came with your printer and make sure that you are not overpressuring the printhead with the ink reservoirs set too high or some part of the priming process has been missed.

More information about your printers setup would definitely help ID more specific issues that could be causing this.

SOURCE: Epson CX5500 with CISS ink supply not printing

It sounds like the waste ink counter needs resetting. Unfortunately the SSC Service utility does not yet support the CX5500 specifically but as there is support for some of the 5000 series it may work. As with any other 3rd party software it is "at your own risk" I've used it many times in the past with no problems. Failing that you will need to take or send it to a service centre for them to reset it.

You can download SSC from here http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml Don't forget to read the help file before you use the utility (you have to install it first).

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: im using ciss for my epson cx3700 and the magenta

Make sure there is not an airlock in the magenta ink line. This is best achieved by fitting a syringe to the flow line and sucking through some ink. Also you may be able to use a syringe and needle to inject some in into the cartridge to prime it. You may need to run several cleaning cycles to get the ink through - I had a similar issue with and Epson R300 using CISS and carried out over 10 cleaning cycles to get the yellow ink to flow again. It may also be worth removing the cartridge and leaning the exit area with a cotton bud soaked in isopropyl alcohol as residue can build up in this area. If the problem persists you can fill the cartridge with cartridge cleaning fluid to flush it through and then empty it and reconnect the CISS ink supply. If you disconnect the CISS Supply a good tip is to use a bulldog clip to prevent the ink from siphoning out of the supply line while you are attending to the cartridge.

The Magenta Ink refuses to flow consistently and shows horizontal broken line on testing.


Inkjet printers need to be used frequently to prevent inkdrying out in 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 thanreplace the print head.

Epson D88 will not print, both red lights flash, message remove obstruction switch off and on. No change still 2 redlights flashing


The Lights can flash on an error and also iff the INK levels are down. You must check the ink levels and try to do a reset with printer software reinstalled.
Remvoe pinter from the PC, unistall and then reinstall to see if the printer shows the INK level exactly. If not replace INK cartridges to confirm.

When printing a red line appears about every 8mm through the all of the page i am useing a epson rx630 fred


It means some nozzle not perfect. If you check nozzle, there is missing lines for some nozzle. Example : Print blue color ( 100% cyan + 100% magenta). If some point of cyan head is clog, the output will be shown that at some lines just show magenta. It repeated. Yous said every 8 mm, so, you must print it at best photo quality. If you have print at best photo quality, and lines still appear, it must some nozlle badly clog. Try do head cleaning, wait for 30 minutes. Check Nozzle.

Epson C66 problem


Without the benefit of a response from any of rickyostrom, liusgarciaca, or hotdog233311, I think we can say the problem lies with the fact that your magenta cartridge isn't printing. You can confirm this by carrying out a nozzle check print.

If any of you would like further assistance in restoring your magenta to working condition, please do a new post to this effect.

red is the combination of Yellow and Magenta toner, try printing one of each independently, if either is printing correctly yellow and magenta you should be able to print red. good luck

Epson RX595 printing problem.


Yes, under the print setting, when you choose to print in grayscale, there should be an option somewhere that says what iks to use.  Select the option that says Black Cartridge Only.  If this does not work, then it could be the printer is programmed no to run without all of the cartridges installed.  Hope this Helps You
