Hi,

This is a common problem on this printer. You could read the below link :-

http://www.fixyourownprinter.com/forums/printer/39569

A couple of solutions were discussed which is absolutely correct.If those would not work, more often you might end up exchanging this printer in lieu of another printer, and that's exactly what Epson wanted. This is a consumer market and this is a common strategy.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

When i am printing anything it is printing with a shade of pink


Hi, You are getting a pink shade in your printouts because your colour ink cartridge is running out of ink, it is probably time to change the colour ink cartridge.

I changed the black ink cartridge and the printer


Calibrate your new blank ink cartridge, have some nozzle check, cleaning check, and printer alignment. This are procedure that new ink cartridge will have to calibrate before you use. Epson printer are very sensitive when capable of changing ink cartridge. Unlink HP directly work without any print test because the cartridge head and ink join together, Epson with ink cartridge and the head separate.
Have some test on it at Printer Maintenance.
I'm sure 100% works on it.
Good luck!

Epson stylus r230 printer


the jet is clogged... set the self clean mode on if this does not fix it try another cartridge. if you have been using refilled, recycled cartridges this may have damaged the jets. common fault that recyclers know about but dont give a toss. ink should be filtered 9 times before being injected into cartridge most recyled are filtered once. this causes jets to become blocked, overheat and actually melt

Red light on steady


If the ink light is on steady red, that means the black or color ink cartridge is nearly empty. Obtain a replacement black or color ink cartridge. To know which cartridge is out of ink, check the ink levels using EPSON Status Monitor 3 (Windows) or EPSON Status Monitor (Macintosh). If you just replaced the cartridges before you got the error light, that means that the replacement cartridge is not recognized by your printer. Please reseat cartridges. Then turn the printer on and off. The cartridges maybe bad also.
If the paper light is on steady red, try to reload 10-20 sheets of regular paper into your printer. When printing on CD/DVD, CD/DVD tray is not inserted in the printer. Insert the CD/DVD tray in the printer and press the paper button.Could also be that the printer has loaded more than one sheet of paper at a time. Load paper in the sheet feeder, and then press the paper button to resume printing. If the CD/DVD guide is open, close the CD/DVD guide, load paper and then press the paper button.
