Hmm the only thing I can think is that there is a issue with the ciss system, but cant be sure unless tested which would mean new carts being bought but could it be possible if the ciss system got plugged?

I have not used the ciss setup before just used one never looked into them fully before.

Let me do some more reading and see if there is anything else that I can add to this, I need more education on the ciss system my buddy owns a ink refill place so im gonna see what he has to say.

Canon ip 7240 i used refill ciss but 4 flash


Hi, My name is Liam from rihac, although we do not sell printers I work very closely with them via our inklink products. When a printer flashes 4 times this is a sign that an ink tank is not installed correctly or that the cartridge will need to be replaced as it is low on ink. As you are using a CISS the cartridges will always have ink in them. To bypass this error all you will need to do is press and hold the RESUME button on the printer for 10 seconds and this will turn off the cartridges ink status monitor and allow you to continue printing.

Does not print, just a faint black print, the cartriges are half full.


your printer is a photo printer which consumes considerable amount of inks when printing... you may need to perform a head cleaning process to clear the clogg on your nozzle. this may consume your ink cartridges... i suggest that you convert your printer into a CISS (continous ink supply system) this is more cost effective instead of buying ink per ink as this shows the same output as the regular ones.

check out ebay for people who convert epson system to CISS
note: doing the head cleaning process always takes ink to force the clogg out of the nozzle tube

hope this helps

I have an Epson Stylus R265. It is telling me all


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Epson r265 what does 2 red lights flashing slowley mean


It means that the ink counter needs resetting and the waste inkpad changing/cleaned. The Epson website will give you the address of a local service centre. Before paying out for that you could see if the SSC Service Utility would work for you although the R265 is not specifically listed as supported it is similar to the R270 which is. The free download is available here http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml

Black ink problem


It could be also the clogging of nossels in color Balck?!
For this purpose you need a special Cleaning solution, wich you
put first in the balck cartrige and start 2x cleaning(when cleaning you should observe if the balck ink is realy transported through the tube !!).Then you shut down your printer for about 24 hours.After that you clean also
for 2x times and check after that the nossels printing test. If not all nossels are free you should repeat the hole thing once again....till the nossels are free.Another problem i observed at my printer is that at some CISS ore kompatible cartriges the rubber-sealing get used with the time and do not seal enough the
conection from cartrige to printer-head and they **** only air...
For this problem i sugested a solution ..see epson stylus 1400

i hope i could help
