Hi, When printing photos, my photos have horizontal light coloured lines across them. When I print the nozzle check pattern all colours match the guide with the exception of the light magenta....


Epsons are notorious for this sort of problem, especially in used infrequently as ink residue dries on the print head; try using a cleaning cartridge, or swab around relevant print head with cotton bud and ethanol/isopropyl alcohol. Here are examples of cleaning carts, there are others http://www.internet-ink.co.uk/epson-cleaning-cartridges/ http://www.icompinkcartridges.co.uk/epson-r200-r300-r220-r320-r340-cleaning-kit.html

Hi there maximum time we found it is a the head problem. The print head is what the cartridges sit in inside of the printer. For resolve the problem please follow these.


Open the printer and wait for the carriage to slide over. Some how if its not come then Unplug the printer & Manually slide the carriage.
Now Remove the ink cartridges from the print head & Use wet warm cotton swab or use alcohol to thoroughly clean the print head.
Repeat this until there is no ink residue coming off on the cotton swab. After finished it make the head dry then fix it back. Now Try to print something now

If that does not work then follow the next step.


Remove the printer data cable & restart the PC & printer. Then fit back the data cable & turn on the printer. Hope that's start working , if no luck then Uninstall the printer driver & restart the PC & Printer both again. Now install the driver of the printer and connect it with PC ,Turn on printer & go for a test print from the printer preference. Thanks & waiting for your reply.

How do I clean the printer heads


Instructions:


  1. Click Start, select Settings and then Printers.
  2. Right-click on the icon for the relevant printer and select Properties. This will display the printer Properties.
  3. Click on to the Utility or Maintenance tab:
  4. In this window, click the Head Cleaning icon.
  5. This will launch the utility, click Start.
  6. This will perform one head clean, a status window will be displayed whilst this is in progress:
Caution: Never turn off the printer while the On light is flashing. Doing so may damage the printer.

The printer will print out a nozzle check pattern. Compare the printout with the next window:

  • If there are gaps or faint print on your printout click Clean.
  • If it is complete, click Finish.

If gaps are still present in the nozzle check pattern, power off the printer and leave it for at least six hours. Print a nozzle check following this period.
If this does not show improvement, then it is recommended that you install a new set of genuine Epson ink cartridges. If only certain colours are affected, you could replace the associated cartridge. Epson recommend replacing damaged or old cartridges - we recommend replacing cartridges that have been open for over 6 months (from the date the cartridge was first removed from its plastic vacuum packaging).
However, if the nozzle check is OK but the text is still broken you may need to run the Print Head Alignment utility.

Both light flashing cleaned the ink pads


1. it seems that you have clogged print head.
2. you will have to replace the print head or remove them an clean them properly with proper clean solution such as denatured alcohol. Depending on the type of print head manufactured. Some times the print head can be shorted and the printer will not recognize a connected print cartridge.

I recently changed the colour cartridge and now the printer wont print colour. Black works - ish. I have troubleshooted and did everything recommended eg clean print heads, nozzles, align heads etc....


Please see the online guide at:

http://support.epson-europe.com/onlineguides/en/sc48/refg/ref_g/

and click on Replacing Ink Cartridges. To change a cartridge before it is low or empty you must press the maintenance button AND the power button at the same time, or use the print utility.

If the new cartridge also fails to produce print, come back with a new comment for further help.

THE GREEN AND RED LIGHT KEEPS FLASHING ON MY EPSON C48


The C48 firmware counts the number f dribbles sent to a waste ink area somewhere in the printer. The printer dribbles every time it’s powered up and when the heads are cleaned. When the counter reaches 8300 the printer stops working.
A utility at http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml will reset the ink counter to zero. Cycle the printer power that’s it! easy peasy. Take care though.. the ink thingy might overflow onto the carpet one day…..
NB. I don’t think that this utility runs under Vista.

Cartidge problem


Many "compatible" cartridges are badly manufactured or even labeld wrong. These can damage or block the connectors on Epson printers. your best bet is go buy new ink and try them, then if it still dont recognise, you could buy some ink cleaning cartiridges and give them a try - Google "Epson Print Head cleaning" Failing that go buy a new printer - Epson's are real cheap new.
