20 Most Recent Epson Workforce 520 Printer Questions & Answers

I had this issue and contacted epson support. They had me open the top to access the cartridges and physically slide the cartridge from its resting place over to the other side and and there was a small piece of paper that got caught in a print and was between the the ink and the cleaners. I then needed to physically move the cartridges back to the resting place and then close the top. Then on the printer, go to the menu and clean the nossels and the test the cartridge. if the lines are broken at all or you dont see words at the top of the test page, then clean the nozzles again. complete this and print a test page or copy. I was good to go.

When replacing ink on the Epson Workforce 520, Ensure the cartridges have the correct/same number of gold contacts. Ive seen them with 7 and 9 gold square contacts and they were otherwise identical, and the ones with 9 contacts threw an "cartridge not recognized" error on the printer's dispay.

Have you:
1. run a nozzle check?
2. run head cleaning?
3. done head alignment?

Steps 1 and 2 are my first Epson fixup for your described problems.

Are there any error messages, or blinking trouble codes? The last piece of paper will sometimes jam or go in skewed, so perhaps it has a small piece of paper in the rollers.

It is obvious that you didn't download the correct driver or if it is new, you didn't remove the packaging properly. Please check all the cable connections.

look carefully at where the color cartridges go in and there is a small color band for the correct cartridge position
as each cartridge is colored , just match the colors and it will be right

Look in the left side of the printer, you'll see some wheels
Shut the printer down and pull the power cord
manually rotate the wheels until the little lever that block the carriage moves
When the carriage is unlocked, you are free to move the carriage.
Hope the Best
