Epson's "small in one" home printer device.

8 个问题 查看全部

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."

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

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.

Not Helpful hear other. I had this issue twice now. I wen and bought another EPSON. Not again.

*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*

With Epson it’s almost always a hardware flaw. Epson uses printheads that are difficult for end users to remove (if you’ve done it before, you know the traps) which makes it worse. At this point, it’s a well established design flaw Epson has yet to fix because they make so much money on consumables since they change them every year.

The issue is either caused by the OEM Epson ink (and made worse by the fact they enforce ink sales with “security updates” because people concede and buy the OEM carts that are more clog prone) regardless of if it’s dye or pigment. That said, the pigment models seem to be worse then the dye models. The other common issue is printhead air but that’s usually associated with inconsistent print quality more so then a completely dead nozzle. That can be fixed by forcing the air out. Cleaner can also be found on eBay.

However, as much as I want to tear into Epson they’re no worse then pre-HP Samsung with the fake firmware updates (HP doesn’t care about 3rd party supplies BUT they do warn about Dynamic Security issues with 3rd party chips) and Lexmark with the 100 series carts and printers. As much as I give HP a break compared to Epson and Lexmark, they do have Cartridge Protection, but that only impacts OEM chips. With Epson, NEVER APPLY A FIRMWARE UPDATE UNLESS YOU WANT TO THROW AWAY UNUSED 3RD PARTY CARTS! Even I’ve moved away from Epson as a scanner because I don’t know if someone installed the rigged firmware since I use 3rd party carts for obvious reasons. The scanners they integrate are really good, but I don’t want to pay $50+ for ink to use a free-cheap printer which may not last very long due to the WIC purge count potentially being high.

All of these inkjet printers clog, but Epson is the worst of them all. You can fix it on most* Canon models, so they get a pass (somewhat). On the more current 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) printhead, it is still modular on most of the Pixma lineup.

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!!!

My Xp-410 just stopped printing any visible marks whatsoever on the paper.

I confirmed printheads functional but no ink on paper. Did a reset except for the network settings and printer regained functionality. Bizarre!
