Epson 1280 red light stays on after i change my cartridge,it sy i'm out of black ink

Posted by David Arrington on

  • Anonymous Jan 09, 2009

    Hello, I have the same issue with my red color ink light and green light flashing. The utility shows color ink cartridge empty even though I just put back in a new one. It won't cycle or recognize the cartridge. I am a Mac G5 user and my printer is the Epson Stylus 1280. Is there another utility program that can help reset my ink cartridges that you can recommend for Mac users?

    Epson Stylus Photo 1280 gets to the point where it rarely accepts new ink cartridges. This Robber Barron Printer costs us several hundred dolars to operate. The best thing to do is put it in the dump when it does this so you don't go broke, and avoid purchasing any Epson Products so they will eventally get the message that no one likes them any more.

Press the Ink Cartridge Replacement button and check the flash pattern of the control panel lights:

Epson 830u Printer Red light stays on even with new ink

I realised that I had to replace both the ink cartridges even though I only wanted to replace the black for it to work. Once I replaced both the black and colour cartridge the red light went off. Thanks

Epson stylus photo 1280 Isn't the printer working if I only have a black ink full?

It doesn't matter whether the cartridges are full, but both cartridges need to have ink in order for the 1280 to work.

Red light

It could be a faulty printer cartridge(it happens). One way to check for this is put in your old cartridge(even if its empty!). If the printer goes to a ready state with your old cartridge, then the new cartridge you replaced might be the problem! if you are refilling cartridges, check out this site http://www.inksupply.com/chipreset.cfm let me know how this turns out regards, babb
