New ink installed, will not print --?

Black ink was full, but would not print. Cleaned print heads, and only red printed boxes. Cleaned heads 4-5 times, still no ink on paper. Printer acts and sounds like it's printing, but nothing come out on paper. What to do?

Edit: "All 4 cartridges were replaced with Epson brand cartridges."

All 4 ink cartridges were replaced with new Epson ink.

의 답변

I have the same problem. Spent the money for all 4 new cartridges and nothing gets copied or printed. The printer is only 2.5 years old & used sparingly in my home. I copy/ print maybe 80 pages PER YEAR. The Epson support rep. did the same cleanings I had done 6 times. & said I had a hardware failure. This is NOT acceptable to me. NO MORE EPSON products for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

fyi. I was at Office Depot yesterday and they said to bring the new cartridges back for a full refund if printer still would not print after installing.

it worked for my HP :

take your inks out, turn off the printer (disconnect it from the power while the cardriges are out)

clean the gold pins with some cloth or Isopropyl alcohol or so

turn on the printer (it will say no ink)

than just put the ink back in and try to print

i fixed my HP 10x like this

This is not a helpful answer. By the original question it is obvious that we all know how to properly install the ink cartridges and have even cleaned heads, replaced ink completely. It is much more helpful if responders read the complete question/string before answering and not just respond to increase your post count. Thank you.

When taking it out of the box there is a plastic sticker over the hole where the ink comes out make sure to remove that. Try taking your ink out and put in back in. Try resetting your printer.

Another simple thing we sometimes forget to do is update the drivers and software that runs the printer. That’s what ended up working for me. Good idea to do that first! Could be the easy fix you’re looking for.

Happy printing!!!

*Read: I know this because I pick these up for nothing most of the time and use them as scanners when the ink totals the printer out*

It’s almost always hardware when the printer is sold by Epson. The clogging problems with these printers have persisted for so long, it’s a pet design flaw. The issue is the OEM Epson ink is thicker then other brands, regardless of if it’s dye or pigment base. That said, the pigment models seem to be worse then the dye models. Sometimes it’s trapped air as well, but it’s usually a clog because of how clog prone the ink is. To make matters worse, they’re using firmware lockout like Lexmark tried with the 100 series ink carts and HP Cartridge protection (and to a degree, JetIntelligence), so you have to find ink that works and never update the firmware if you avoid the OEM ink to try and avoid the inevitable Epson clogging.

If you get nothing out of the trouble color channel, you have a clogged printer. If it’s on and off where it happens, it may be an air issue so try that before flushing the head to rule air out. This video shows how to fix it if it’s air. If it isn’t air, then you need a printhead cleaner, which can be found on eBay quite easily.

All of these inkjet printers clog, but Epson seems to be the worst ones with this problem. You can fix it on most* Canon models, so they get a pass (somewhat). On the 564/901 HP models, HP generally integrates the head and needs setup carts to use the printer again - and you probably no longer have them so you can no longer use it. You need a wide body HP 95X/96X printer (OfficeJet Pro) for a user serviceable printhead these days from HP.

*Outside of some of the cheap CLI tank models with a non-replaceable (by the end user) models, the head is still modular on most of the Pixma lineup.
