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....

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:

Hi, My Epson Stylus R230 light magenta ink not working.


Hi i'm a printer Technician
The problem of your printer could be that the surface of the printhead is dirty, and the Cleaning pad/tab doesn't work so good..

Here's a guide i wrote that I done multiple times on my customers printers:

1. Power on the printer, and when the carriage moves from the right to the left side instantly disconnect the power cord.

2. Move the Printer carriage (where the cartridges are installed) on the EXTREME LEFT side, please do it very slowly!

3. Take a syringe of hot water but not boiling, MAX. 70-75 °C

4. Expect the extreme right side of the printhead.. You could be able to see a little squared pad, dirty of ink, and on the left side of that PAD you could see a little rubber strip.

5. Take a tissue of paper and dab the furface of the Cleaner Pad (The squared pad you seen)

6. Take a new tissue of paper and place on it some hot water

7. Without burning your hands try to clean as soon as possible the rubber strip on the right part of the Pad.
It would be completely without ink on it

8. Take the hot water syringe and place some hot water on the Cleaner Pad (the amount of water is proportionate to the printer, you have to place water until you see that the surface of the pad is COMPLETELY full of water.

9. Gently move the carriage VERY SLOWLY on the extreme right side of the printer (where there's the Cleaning Pad)

10. Leave the printer like so for 3-5 hours, then restart the printer and do 2-3 cleaning cycles, better with a brand new black cartridge

11. Do a test print (Nozzle Check) and see if there are some changes!

Hope the Best!!

How to solve my print color problem


Assuming that you have ink for any color, the problem can either be clogged print-head or an electronic (board) failure no longer controlling a color/colors.

Epsons are notorious for this sort of problem, especially in used infrequently as ink residue dries on the print head; try using a cleaning cartridge, or swab around relevant print head with cotton bud and ethanol/isopropyl alcohol. Here are examples of cleaning carts, there are others http://www.internet-ink.co.uk/epson-cleaning-cartridges/ http://www.icompinkcartridges.co.uk/epson-r200-r300-r220-r320-r340-cleaning-kit.html

I have a used C60. I have replaced both ink cartridges with Epson cartridges. When printing in color, the colors are not accurate. For example, red comes out yellow. Also, there are lines running through...


Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

Red cast on all prints


Sounds crazy, but have you got the LM (light magenta) and M (magenta) tanks or inks mixed up?

Also - check the profiles, if you've got a colour profile set up, you may have applied it twice, which would make a magenta cast...

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
