Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

A local Epson repair person tells me that the Epson stylus color 3000 is soaking up the three colors. He says the mixture of inks is generating undesired print colors. He has replaced the ink heads, and a pump which has not helped. If you know anything that would help, please help me (us).

    In answer to your question about the print becoming clear after a few prints, I did not get that impression in speaking with the tech repair person this afternoon.

    I will speak with A. tomorrow and see if he can access the print info, and reduce the saturation/ink usage. It certainly would be nice if he is able to connect the printer with a computer.

    Thank you for your prompt response, and I will pass along your suggestions tomorrow as he is closed by now.

Cleaning the print heads and the docking area should resolve this.

    Does it self clear after a few prints? if it does, the problem is in the docking area.

    Try looking at your PC printer/ print info. Reduce the saturation / ink usage down to light. You could be oversaturating the print - Too much ink.

    Find this with

    Start menu - Control panel, Printers / faxes, Select printer, Select Printer tab at top of page, Printer Preferences, Then printer features.

    Set ink usage to light.

    Hope this helps you.

Ink not empty

You have confused the software in either changing a cartridge when not required or having a chip failure whilst changing multiple cartridges.
Full info on how to get out of this is on my site.

Please go to my website . I have the latest version of SSC Service Utility to download directly onto your computer and instructions on how to use it, what to click on etc etc. Click any of the Epson links if you can't find it, everything you need to know will be there, including printer Firmware resetting which sorts out a multitude of problems.

The 'maintenance required' problem with Epson printers has absolutely nothing to do with which cartridges you are using, it is a built in page counter in your printer firmware, which has a different maximum amount for each Epson model. Don't listen to old wives tales and heresay, we are the experts and it's an Epson scam to cause a lot of people to pay for maintenance or throw their printers away.
I haven't found a model that can't be reset with the latest version of SSC Serve or the manual reset on my site.

For Epson RX500 users there is also a manual reset on my site, as the SSC Serve software won't do it for you.
When using the program & choosing your printer from the list, it may have a weird name with 'x' in the model number, this is because some configurations are for many models in a series. For example, the C46 will be listed as C4x as it is for the C42, C44 & C46 models.

I hope this helps all Epson users to overcome the Epson scam of page counting and locking out until you pay their dealers money for maintenance.

If you like what I've done for Epson users, please show your appreciation by spreading the word and perhaps buying your ink from my site.

Happy trouble free printing
