    I just bought a new cartridge which means that it isn't clogged. The printer prints black and white, but not color, nothing at all. I will try cleaning the printer itself, but I'm not sure this will help. As I said, the black ink prints, but the color doesn't even with a brand new cartridge.

    I need help urgently, since I need to print out a paper for a class that has color elements to it.

The ink nozzles on the cartridges are clogged. first try cleaning them using a alcohol-soaked Q-tip against the shiny part where ink comes out (remove cartridges first). if still no ink, cartridges may be out of ink, so either replace or re-fill them.

I installed remanufactured ink cartridges (cheaper) but artisan 800 now shows that I did not install epson cartridges and it will not print anything, just keeps telling me I did not install their epson...

Epson are very intrusive with there messages. They do this because there main source of income is through the sales of cartridges at ridiculous prices!!! Even though the message appears on most models if you press the OK button at the bottom of the message, not the red cross at the top, it should continue to print. I have not had experience with your particular model yet but I have not had one Epson that would not print with compatibles installed? If it goes through the motions of printing and nothing comes out it is a sign of a dud cartridge.
I hope this helps Regards GM

Printer has ink, but nothing comes out on the paper.

You might need a new print head. If the printer is older maybe a new one would be cheaper.

Hi,I am experiencing nothing printing on paper even though ink cartridges have been replaced and cleaning has been absorber warning appears and says that absorbers are almost full and to push...

your print head is either clogged or damaged, A print head is the unit your ink cartriges sit in. If its a nedw or newer printer (under warranty) you can contact the manufacturer and they will send you a new print head at little to no cost-good luck

Acts like it's printing, ink is good, but nothing prints out on paper.

Nothing at all? Poor you are. The pump may damage or lost electricity.
