Given that you are using a dye-sublimation ink I have to ask if you're basing the colours you're getting on the results on your substrate or on the finished product (after you've done the heat transfer).

Beyond that you should probably ask the supplier if they have a colour profile for their inks. If not you can look for one of the services available. I can't make any recommendations but communication with this company has been quite positive

Replaced a new cyan cartridge for Epson 1400. Printer ignored it.


Ye of course it could be faulty and Epsons are sometimes very fussy about using third party carts. Get it replaced at your store, try a different brand or buy a genuine Epson cart if you can afford it.

What do I have to do if I want to use sublimation ink on Epson stylus photo 1290?Thanks


what you want is not possible. the Epson Stylus Photo 1290 does not use sublimation ink. it is strongly advised to only use genuine Epson ink to keep the print quality of your print head as high as possible.

Reset ink-pad counter on epson stylus photo 1400


Hi,

The simplest way to do this is to grab a copy of the A10_IPR utility that Epson distribute to their customers...

The utility is available to North American customers if you register no this site page http://www.epson.com/ipr/

The utility is also know to be available in the wild if you search for "waste ink ipr".

Just remember to scan any download using a virus and malware scanner before you attempt to use it as some utilities contain trojans or similar nasties.

Hope that helps.

If you're using compatible ink cartridges, then the driver may have updated itself over the web and made the chips you're using in the fake cartridges become devoid. I'd suggest trying original cartridges, or getting a CIS with an original cartridge piggybacking the ink tanks.

If you're using original carts (and fake ones exist that LOOK like originals) I'd call Epson.

Ink not compatiable


Hi. When I fitted the second set of cartridges to my Epson Stylus Photo 1400, the printer failed to recognize any of them, even though they were genuine Epson! I repeatedly installed and un-installed them without success. After giving it a bit of thought, I had a hunch that the contacts on the cartridges might not be making good contact with the contacts on the printer as the cartridges seemed a little loose. I removed each cartridge in turn and after putting some adhesive tape on the opposite end to the contacts, (there are grooves cut into this end, but the tape drops nicely into them when you install the cart) replaced them all. (This had the effect of pushing the cartridges harder against the contacts). Switched on again and all carts worked fine. So it seems that even Epson can't make the cartridges to fit their own printer properly! Having said that it's a great printer otherwise. I hope this is helpful to you.
