It appears that some ink nozzles are blocked or not seated properly.

Go to the Epson support site below and enter Epson WorkForce 600 as your model. Then go to Troubleshooting Guide in the list on the right of the web page

SOURCE: I recently installed new black ink cartridge.

Hi maryryherd - yes the C64 is in the list - don't know why you couldn't see it.

The inkjet colour system can be quite confusing. The colours in the cartridges are cyan, magenta and yellow, plus black. Other colours require a mixture of these basic ones. For example, to produce "red" requires a mixture of magenta and yellow. Your problem sounds like you are getting insufficient yellow, and maybe insufficient black.

Have you tried a cleaning cycle? If not, try one (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select head clean). Now run a nozzle check (right click the little printer icon in the bottom right corner of the screen and select nozzle check). Are all the 3 colour bands plus black printed OK. If not, try up to three cleaning cycles. If ink is now flowing pretty well, but not yet perfectly, don't carry out any more cleaning cycles. Just leave the printer for 24 hours (to allow any air in the print head to disperse). Then repeat the cleaning cycle/wait process. It may take a while to restore a perfect nozzle check print. If these actions produce no positive results, report back with a new comment.

Hi There

Summary

Usage of compatible ink and leave the printer idle too long may cause printhead clogging
What should you do if you get this problem. Relax; you may recover the printhead by unclogging it. Follow these steps to unclog the printhead

1. Right click in the printer driver name
2. Select Properties menu
3. Click Maintenance tab
4. Click on cleaning sign for regular cleaning. Perform this up to 3 times.
5. If this does not work, perform Deep Cleaning
And if that not work

Some times it needs a good clean up but this is up to you if you want to do this,
But after you done this prime the printer so it gets the inks back in the heads, it may take a little time for the inks to work.

Ok.

There is fluid cleaner for this but I can never find any in the shops the only ones I seen is when they sell them in Tesco but they come in with the ink refill bottles so I just use worm water by it self on a cloth and dabbing on the heads to clean them, it will not harm the heads but not to much water.

Some heads are on the inks them self but some have them inside the printer so I not know your printer so if the heads are inside you need to get them out you may find that some heads will just clip out put some need to be unscrewed so you got to know how they come out so be careful and not push to hard on them, if the heads are on the ink then it is a easy job to clean them,
It worth a try it worked for me more than ones.

Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Red and yellow not printing


Red and yellow reservoir have dried up and won't allow ink to flow, clean entire area with rubbing alcohol, let dry and try with new ink cartridges.
Make sure your printer is in a cool location, if it is in a closed cabinet with the computer running the print ink will get baked inside of the printer rendering it useless and replaceable.
Good luck!

Epson Workforce 600 not recognizing black toner


I had the same problem and was told by the store that sold it to me that some printer manufacturers do this on purpose as they make their most money on the ink they sell not the printer. I got rid of mine and purchased an ink jet black only printer as this is all I need anyway. A lot cheaper to use.

When I Print the color Yellow, it's being printed as Pink.


I think you switched the ink stations. Try to switch the yellow and magenta. It also is a possibility that they are refilled with the wrong ink color. Place new ink cartridges and your problem is solved! (It can be that a few prints still show some pink color, because there is a residu of magenta in the yellow printhead)

Hi i am having a epson t13 color printer but it is not printing pink color what may be the problem please anybody can help me


Hi

This normal with epson printers. The nozzles get blocked and some colors are not printed. Try to take the Nozzles print by Turning on the printer while pressing the ink replace button.

The printer will print a page with some lines, see if you can find all the colors. Cyan Magenta, Yellow & Black lines. if not hold the ink button for 5 sec., and it will clean the head try the 1st step again.

I just replaced my ink cartridges for my Epson Workforce 600 printer and the magenta and yellow colors do not print. The status shows that both are still full of ink, but when I do the nozzle check,...


Try "Nozzle cleaning" and if the problem persist, try "Deep nozzle cleaning". Try them only once or else the ink will run out very quickly.
If the ink cartridges are not genuine Epson, remove them and buy genuine cartridges. If needed, repeat the procedure with them.
Non-original consumables very often clog the printhead.
