Question about Epson Stylus 680 InkJet Color Printer

1 Answer

Printer does not print

I have my my printer for over 7 years. It failed to print after installing new cartridges and I realised that the black one had expired though the expiry date had been concealed. I bought it another black cartridges, but the printer failed to print. I took it to the technician who serviced it but started giving a message "Out of paper". When you load the papers, it pulls them up until all are finished without printing anything on any of the papers. I thought that the cartridges purchased locally were fake and I sent for a pair from Hongkong, but it is sttill the same story. Please advise. Thanks.

Why dosesnt my printer print even though i have new cartridges?


Sounds unlikely but somteimes they sell defective new cartridges. Look for original packing, maybe still in your wastebasket, and verify expire date.

They believe expired cartridges will damage the printer. If you change the date back on the printer and computer this will solve the problem and allow you to print.

Says Black ink supply expired. Installed new



I have to ask this question of you, just to make sure this is not an issue. Are you using a factory new ink cartridge?
Please consider the following:
If you are using a refilled or third party cartridge that may well be your problem. Most manufacturers build logic into their products to prevent the use of “Other Equipment Manufactured” cartridges as well as re-filled cartridges.
They do this to prevent problems from contaminated inks causing problems with print quality or damaging the physical printhead.
If you are using factory new cartridges, then please call the manufacturers Technical Support for assistance with the warranty on the cartridges

My printer stood unused for about 8 months. Then


Remove all the cartridges from the printer and check for expiration date on the cartridges, if the cartridges are expired, you need to replace them with HP genuine, use of refilled one's cause many issues.The cartridge that is compatible with this printer is HP 14 black and HP 14 tricolor.
To align the printheads at any other time:
  1. Press Menu .
  2. Press 7 , then 3 . (For the HP Officejet D 125xi press 3 , then 3 again)A page prints to confirm printhead alignment.

Ink system has failed. Unable to print. Error: Oxcc 18a 0201


See if you can install your printer on another computer and then try printing with it again.
Run a test print first to be sure and check your print out. If this fails,
Run a print head cleaning using the printer utility setting. If it does not work,
Get another Black ink and try it out again. Cheers!

New black installed; will not print in black ink. Everything else prints!


hi, it is possible that the black cart was not installed properly. Try reseating the black cart and see if it works. You can also try to calibrate the printer. you can do this by pressing the menu button then go down to calibrate printer. after that it would also help to perform a deep clean which can also be found on that same menu. then try to print. If all these fails, try to call the kodak hotline 800.421.6699

"Expired color cartridge" message blocks black printing - nothing works


Hello merelU. I'm afraid you may have to replace the empty color cartridge as there may be problems with the printer while an expired cartridge is installed on the printer (even though some of the cartridges are still under warranty) and also, HP cannot guarantee the quality or reliability of expired ink cartridges.


all the best.
thx

Officejet d135 - "Supply Expired" error message


HP, in order to sell more ink, monitors the expiration date of the cartridges installed. Solution is either to buy a new unexpired cartridge from HP or to disable the date monitoring built in to the printer. This latter is done by removing the button cell located inside the D135 printer on the left hand side or by simply slipping a thin piece of plastic between button cell and metal contact. You will no longer have date function on printer, but it won't object to expired cartridges either.

Hi, I really appericate all your efforts to fix the issue the issue usually occures if any one of the cartridge is defective or low in ink or both the cartridge are defective. We can isolate the issue only by removing the both the cartridges out of the printer and check for the expiry dates printed on the cartridges as if the cartridges are expired also leads to this message. If the cartridge are not expired and have minumial ink in it you can try the below procedure to isolate the defective cartridge Once the both the cartridges are out of the printer insert only the black cartridge in the printer and check for the message if the message is install color cartridge the black cartridge and printer is detecting fine. If the message is check right cartridge this shows that the black cartridge is defective. If the message is insert left cartridge or color cartridge remove the black cartridge out and insert only the color cartridge and check with the message if the message is insert the black cartridge the color cartridge is working fine. And when the color cartridge is in the printer and if the message prompts to check left or color cartridge the color cartridge seems to be defective so replace the defective one will fix the issue So in isolation we can find the defective cartridge and fix the issue by replacing the defective one.. Hope this will help you to fix the issue.. Wish you success. Regards, Barret.
