SOURCE: Epson Photo RX620: Printing Pink Lines

Hi,

None of these answers are accurate.  I know precisely what your problem is, and you aren't going to like what I have to say.  What you are experiencing will happen eventually to every Epson printer and there is nothing you can do about it other than to buy a new printer.  I have an Epson Stylus Photo 895 ( a 500 dollar printer in its day), which has the same issue.  I am just waiting for my ink cartridges to run out in order to buy a new one.

Endless research on google has turned up that there is no solution to this problem.  The issue you are having is with the Epson print head, which uses piezo technology.  What that means is that unlike HP or Canon printers which are thermal, piezo uses a small piezoelectrical cell to force ink out of the chamber.  It has advantages over thermal in that thermal requires a precise temperature to get ink on the page (what actually happens is that ink is heated, it forms a bubble, and the bubble bursts onto the page, hence the name BubbleJet).  Therefore, the ink has to have fairly precise thermal ink properties making it more expensive to manufacture.  Also, the ink on a BubbleJet (or HP) is wetter when it hits the page, and since the ink is heat resistant or order to properly form the bubble, the printer needs to incorporate a fast drying technology which consumes more energy.  The massive advantage of thermal is that the print head is on the cartridge, not on the printer itself; change your cartridges, get a brand new print head.  It makes cartridges more expensive, but reduces problems such as what you are experiencing.

Piezo on the other hand, always shoot ink through the same print head.  Once the head become damaged over time, the piezoelectric cell is no longer accurately pushing out the ink, and there is nothing you can do about it.  If you are lucky, it is only dried ink in the print head, but I can almost guarantee you that it is not.  Dried ink can be cleaned by repeated head cleanings, even manual ones involving rubbing alcohol.  However, I know that those pink lines are caused by the deterioration of the cell, and cannot be fixed.  If if were only dried ink, you wouldn't be limited to just pink lines on the page, you would see other colours.  If the cell is not doing its job, the lines are always pink (often called magenta when you google this problem).  The solution is to acquire a new print head.  Unfortunately, the cost of replacing an Epson print head is IDENTICAL to the cost of a new Epson printer.

So basically you have no choice, you need to buy a new printer.  Were I you, I would purchase a new thermal inkjet printer so that you get a new print head with every cartridge.  Look around before you buy to find out exactly how much the cartridges will cost, and then you will know which brand to buy.  Although piezo *can* make for a cheaper printer at the outset, Epson simply charged what HP and Canon do for their replacement cartridges because that is what people are used to paying, but you really do get more in a thermal inkjet catridge.

Sorry for the bad news,
DD.

When you run the nozzel check, do each of the colors print out right, or just the magenta ones?

SOURCE: Everything printing in PINK

Assuming you have successfully eliminated cartridge/print head problems, the only other thing to try is to delete the printer software and reinstall [Start/Printers and faxes -right click on the printer icon click delete- install new printer -Have the software disk and handy or select from list- select maker, select model,] I suspect the problem is still print head/cartridge however

I am gonna gusess there is a break (or poor connection) in one of the lines in the flexable cable that feeds power to the print heads. You might try checking the continuity of each line.

Hi i am having a epson t13 color printer but it is not printing pink color what may be the problem please anybody can help me


Hi

This normal with epson printers. The nozzles get blocked and some colors are not printed. Try to take the Nozzles print by Turning on the printer while pressing the ink replace button.

The printer will print a page with some lines, see if you can find all the colors. Cyan Magenta, Yellow & Black lines. if not hold the ink button for 5 sec., and it will clean the head try the 1st step again.

With words not printing properly?
On my epson, I went and bought Cheaper Ink, which was supposed to be compatible,and it wasnt!

What the epson, did, was print out in different colors.
the green was blue and yellow was pink, etc.

Epson, restricts you from buying other brands, like that. It makes you buy their Brand !!!!!!!
Good Luck.

Problem with colour printing. Orange and green


Wow, that's a really old EPSON printer. The life expectancy of a EPSON printer is just three years, after that, the printer wouldn't work because of the clogged permanent printing head. The authorized service center is unable to repair it because the spares are no longer supplied.
Throw it to a recycling center.

Canon i860 won't print deep colors


I had similar problem: everything muted and with brownish tint. Tried everything, finally discovered that I installed wrong cartridge: 6PC instead of 6C. The "photo" cartridges are pretty much the same, make sure you have the right ones: 6C, 6M, and 6Y.

Epson 880 not printing in color


Found the answer. For some reason, my computer accepted a Mac driver. It called the printer Epson Stylus COLOR 880 (M). I went back to the original installation disk; thereafter, I had two printers, one without M, one with M, and deleted the M printer. All is working fine now.
