A quick cleaning of the cartridge heads with alcohol solved the problem. Thanks for your help.

NOTHING SHOWS UP


While waiting for more info from you, Look for these :

If you have bought a new cartridge:
Make sure you purchased the right ink.
Make sure you removed the tape covering the print head.
Make sure you have installed the the cartridge correctly.
Look for the expiration date, old cartridges dry out! 

If you have had the cartridge in the printer for a long time the ink might have crusted on the print head take out the cartridge and rinse the print head under warm tap water for a minute or so. then dry the hole cartridge thoroughly with a paper cloth OBS! don't rub the print head too much! put the cartridge back in the printer. If it doesn't help, maybe it is time to get a new cartridge!

Happy fixing things!

Hi,I am experiencing nothing printing on paper even though ink cartridges have been replaced and cleaning has been performed.ink absorber warning appears and says that absorbers are almost full and to push...


your print head is either clogged or damaged, A print head is the unit your ink cartriges sit in. If its a nedw or newer printer (under warranty) you can contact the manufacturer and they will send you a new print head at little to no cost-good luck

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.


Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.

Have you removed the tear off tape from top of cartridges, it lets the air in and ink flows.

I replaced both ink cartridges for the printer, won' print.


Please follow the procedure your printer has which forces it printer to clean the print heads.
I have experience of other epson stylus models.  I have previously spoken to epson about this exact problem.  Repeating the head cleaning process a minimum 5 times cleared the problem.
Running head clean multiple times in succession builds up pressure in the print heads - causing (usually new) cartridges to work correctly.
kind regards

Printer will not print even though the cartdige is new


The ink heads are clogged with dried ink.  

Follow these steps:
1) Begin saving money for a new printer.

2) Lift the scanner to get at the ink. Remove the cartridges.
Take cotton swabs and alcohol and clean all the ink off of the top of the heads (located in back.  they're the pointy things) until you can see the holes.  THE CRUCIAL STEP: Insert something-small enough to fit in the holes-all the way through every hole in every head. This should clean out the dried ink and allow your printer to continue to work.

3) If step two doesn't work, I really hope you did step one.  
Don't buy an Epson.  They also have this other feature which prevents printing when one cartridge is empty.  Even a color cartridge.  I recommend a Canon, if you like name brands, or an HP.

Printer doesn't print even with new ink cartridges.


Take out the Cartridge & get a new one if the problem persists then get the printer software reinstalled & if still it is not printing then clean up the cartridge head with cotton swabs dipped in hot water!
This should clean the head & black will be on paper

DO THIS AS FINAL REFUGE
If still its not working then there's some problem in the copper contact surface in the printer on the cradle so get a new Printer.

"PUT IN CARTRIDGE" error with cartridges installed


Hello Dear,
The Print Head in your printer is physically damaged and so even though it is present and installed it will not be detected by the Printer, you need to purchase and install a new print head for your printer.
Warm Regards,
Manoj Joseph
