1.Try print black text ,and run many copies black only. I ran 25x12 times still no black. Run head clean after about each 50 sheets. Persevered and finally BLACK ink OK
Good Luck Inkypete
When your ink starts getting low, you will see a red light flashing on
the printer. There is a tear drop shape next to the indicator light on
the top of the printer. You can keep printing until the light stays
red. Once the light stays red, they will need to be changed. When you
need more ink, Epson will have a window pop up on your computer
wanting you to purchase ink from them. You do not need to do this. We
bought our ink cartridges at Best Buy. This printer uses
DuraBrite Ultra Ink. There are 2 types; 69 or 88. They recommend 69 for
heavy use and 88 for moderate use. The 88 has about half the ink the 69
does. We buy the 69 because it lasts much longer. We use this printer
about 3 times a week on average and we haven’t had to change the ink
for about 6 months. The 69 black ink at Best Buy is less than
$20.00 and the color ink is about $14 for each of the 3 colors. The
color 88 comes with all 3 in a pack and it’s about $30.00.
You should not remove any old cartridges until you are ready to
replace them because if there isn’t any in there it can dry out the
nozzles. You open the scanner and press the stop button and the printer
head moves to the correct position. Open the cover and squeeze the tabs
that are there and remove the old ones. Then as mentioned in the set
up, insert each one in the correct color and press until they click.
This printer was actually the easiest that I have ever had when it came
to changing the ink. Another thing that you should know is that you
cannot refill the cartridges. They have to be new.
Dear louis, You have done right thing by cleaning the print head. If the print head still clogged after repeatedly cleaning, It seems that the print head need to be replace with new one. Make it sure by printing nozzle check pattern. Is it good or not?. Regards,
the printer cartridge might be loosed, remove this again and re-install one more time and do the ink calibration in order for your printer ot recognize the prensence of a new ink, the restart your printer again
I have a 440 and have had the same problem. Of course, I have been using cartridges from Printpal, Inkgrabber, etc. that are not official Epson. I have found that it takes several cleanings and after the cartridge has been in the position for the ink to go down it will start. My last order from Printpal said to set all the cartridges in the position they are in when installed in the printer for several days prior to installation. Of course, every cleaning of the print head uses up more of your ink. You don't have much choice though.
My HP 3310 wil not print black. The color prints fine. Spent 2 hours on the phone with HP support only to be told to buy a new printer. The machine is less than 2 years old. There must be a way to repair this. Any ideas? Barbara
