Question about Epson WorkForce WF-7620 Wireless Color All-in-One Inkjet Printer

1 Answer

Epson WF-7620 will not print black.

My WF-7620 with a total of 510 prints over the past year has stopped printing Black. It is not a cartridge problem, replaced with new 252 Epson ink. Cleaned print heads, repeated process. Will not still not print black even on the test page. Epson support was useless. Any suggestions before I take this product to recycling? I can only think that this is either firmware issue or the black jets are clogged. Is there any way to manually clean the nozzles with alcohol or solvent.

I had a similar problem on my 3640 and had to run the clean cycle about 20 or so times. If you feel you are capable, you can also remove the print head and do a manual clean. YouTube has a few videos on how to do it. I have done this to one of my printers with very good success.

Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.

These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.


The next step would be to disassemble the Epson, and clean the Pads/Heads. Click on link below.:

I located a page on http://www.fixyourownprinter.com forum, which had plenty of details about similar issues.

If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Load A3 size paper on the lower tray.
Verify you see A3 as an option in paper setuo on the printer screen against tray 2.
Make sure you have selected A3 on the software before you print.

Why won't my Epson WF-7620 print on thick paper when fed from the rear slot


Are you setting the printer to A3 when you hit print? When you select print you will get a on screen box where you can change options and then confirm by clicking print. Most printers are set to default legal size.

Why will my Epson wf7620 not print black ink after replacing the cartridge?


Hi. I don't know if your printer is new or old or if this was the first time you replaced the cartridge or this has occurred after several changes. Most if not all printers will have this occur after replacing a cartridge if the ink had been depleted for some time and allowed to dry up in the jets. Sometimes all it takes is a day for this to happen. I have found that I must go through several cleaning cycles to clear the clogged jet(s). So, try doing a few cleaning cycles and see if that solves the problem. Another cause for a printer not printing after replacing a cartridge is surprisingly a FAULTY or remanufactured cartridge. There should be a program on your computer that displays the cartridge condition, cleaning procedure and ink levels. Give that a look over.

Epson WF 7010 sitting for several months -- wont print black -- colors ok -- print did a firmware update whne put back in service


Inkjet cartridges dry out and fail when printers sit unused for extended periods of time. The black ink cartridge is probably no longer usable. Updating firmware won't have any effect on the issue.

Why is my WF 7620 using excessive black ink?


Check the print settings. Do you have it set to Photo, Best or economy? Usually this is done in the Epson application and/or at the print window. Higher settings will use more ink.
