Epson Photo Stylus 1280 print heads do not work


The problem is the print head, The ink cartrige for this printer is just a little bottle of ink. What really causes problem in it IS THE CLOGGED HEAD. If you have skill to reach thepen of the head (part that touchs the paper) use a quill tip or rag soak on water and clean it. Or go to EPSON SITE AND ORDER A HEAD CLEANNER FLUID TO POUR INSIDE THE HEAD AND CLEAN IT.

Does not print


Hi,
First of all please check the ink level. If it is not finished try followings:

First try to run a cleaning cycle. To do that:
- Load paper in the paper tray. - Access printer utilities. (Right click your printer icon, select printing preferences and click the utility tab to access printer utilities) - Click the nozzle check icon. - Print to check it.
Then click the clean button to clean the print head. - Try it a few times.
İf it doesn't help you can try to run power cleaning cycle. But it uses much ink. There must be enough ink in the cartridge.
Hope this helps.

My r290 add red color to my photos


*** I'll be more than happy to help you on that. you might be talking about R280, because theres no R290 for epson. there is a great possibility thatsome of the nozzles of your printer are clogged by dried inks, thats why when it prints, the inks are not equally distributed or is not balanced.to check that, print a nozzle check, and if you see gaps or breaks, between the lines, do head cleaning. this is how you can do it, its very easy for you. Using the Buttons on the Printer 1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing, that the CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer, and the red maint.5.1.8.jpg ink light is not on. (If the red maint.5.1.9.jpg ink light is on, you need to replace a cartridge.) 2. Turn the printer off and make sure the front tray is in the paper (lower) position. 3. Make sure letter-size plain paper is loaded in the printer. 4. Hold down the maint.5.1.10.jpg paper button, then press the maint.5.1.11.jpg power button. Hold down both buttons until the maint.5.1.12.jpg power light begins to flash, then release the maint.5.1.13.jpg power button. maint.5.1.14.jpg 5. When the nozzle check starts to print release the maint.5.1.15.jpg paper button. Check the nozzle check pattern that prints to see if there are gaps in the lines. maint.5.1.16.jpg 6. If there are no gaps or lines, the print head does not need to be cleaned. If there are gaps or lines, or the test patterns are faint, follow the steps in do the Head Cleaning to clean the nozzles. Using the Buttons on the Printer 1. Make sure the printer is turned on but not printing, and the red maint.5.1.23.jpg ink light is off. (If the red maint.5.1.24.jpg ink light is flashing or on, you need to replace a cartridge.) 2. Hold down the maint.5.1.25.jpg ink button on the printer for approximately 3 seconds. The printer runs a head cleaning cycle and the green maint.5.1.26.jpg power light flashes. Cleaning takes several seconds. Caution:
Never turn off the printer while head cleaning is in progress. You may damage it.

Do not insert the CD/DVD tray until cleaning has finished. 3. When the green maint.5.1.27.jpg power light stops flashing, make sure paper is loaded in the printer, then print a nozzle check to determine whether you need to clean the print head again. Print Head Nozzles If you don’t see any improvement after cleaning three times, turn the printer off and wait overnight. This allows any dried ink to soften. Then, try cleaning the print head again.

Printing misaligned color blotches, little squares off to the


Are you using genuine inks or compatibles/refills? Have you cleaned / aligned the print heads recently? Does it only happen on the second print? Could be a case of excess ink getting onto the rollers which then get hot and deposit the ink on the next paper coming through.
Also make sure you've selected the correct paper type before printing.

Remove the cartridge.....
using a cotton bud clean the ink nozzle area on the cartridge for excess ink..take extra care not to damage the nozzles

... while at it take a piece of rag and try to clean the..service station area(this is where the cartridge goes to the side of the printer)for ink build ups....try to clean the rubbers that wipe the ink off the head as it runs across ..this is near the service station area clean well

it just requires cleaning..try to use little bit of cleaning solution that is available for that particular model..if not use bit of alcohol but do not use it on the cartridge itself ..make sure the alcohol is properly dried as not to damage the head

do reply if this helped

Epson 1280


The ink jet printers have ink absorbing pads to catch and accumulate ink used to clean the printheads. The counter on MB counts number of head cleanings and printer startups (at every start up the heads are cleaned) and at preset number of cleaning alerts the operator that "printer needs maintenance" and sets the red light. You probably need a change ink absorbing pads (or wash them and dry 'em up) and then make a reset the count using printer Service Utility (can be downloaded from the web). To get to the ink absorbing pads is not easy - you need to remove the printer case - I am not familiar with 1280, but I did that on Epson 3000 & 5000 printers. In many cases the pads are actually OK , but the MB reaches the count and flags the pads.

Epson c60 printer


Common problem with Epson Printers.
Either the print head is clogged, or the tube that goes from the pump to the printhead fell off.

Open the printer cover so that the ink cartridges are in open view and then UNPLUG THE PRINTER" so that the ink cartridges wont go back to home position. (If there is a change INK cartridge button, then press that then uplug the printer when the cartridge stops moving.)

You can try to clean the print head by folding up a couple paper towels, then saturate it with windex with amonia. Place it under the print head assembly and manually move the print head assembly over the paper towel back and forth to clean the bottom of the print head assembly. You should start seeing ink on the paper towel.

After cleaning, run the cleaning program that Epson has, and try it out.
If it still doesn't work, then you might have to repeat this a couple more times.
If it still doesn't work, then it might be time to get a new printer.
Hope this info helps.
Good luck.

Epson 1280 red lines on photo


One of the best possible solution that we can suggest is to run a cleaning cycle for three times. Just to make sure that cleaning is effective please try the step below:

1. Using your computer go to printer utility.
2. Click on Maintenance then select Head Cleaning. Head cleaning usually took 1 minute.
3. Once the Head Cleaning is done Print a nozzle pattern to check whether the head cleaning is effective or not.

Repeat those steps for 3 times. If the nozzle pattern after 3 cleaning cycles still bad. Reseat ink cartridge if possible replace the ink cartridges.

After all those steps and issue still present printer needs to be in service.
