Do all Epson printers use the same cartridge? No. It`s important to check the compatibility lists on our website so you can be sure you`re buying the right ink or toner for your Epson printer.
Try removing your cartridges from your printer, and then shutting your printer down. Turn it on after a few hours and wait for your printer to recognize that there aren`t any cartridges installed in the printer. Install all of the cartridges back into the printer and try printing.
The base ingredient of printer ink is usually oil; either linseed oil, soybean oil, or a petroleum distillate. Carbon black and varnish are combined to make basic black ink. Colored ink are made with dyes/compounds like peacock blue, yellow lake, diarylide orange, and phthalocyanine green.
To find out which cartridge requires replacing, see Using the printer`s control panel, or check EPSON Status Monitor 3 (for Windows) or EPSON StatusMonitor (for Macintosh). Caution: Do not move the print head by hand, as this may damage the printer. Always press the ink cartridge replacement button to move it.
What is the difference between Epson 410 and 410XL? The Epson 410 and 410XL are the same except that the 410XL contains more ink than a standard 410. Both cartridges contain pigment-based black ink. The 410XL will fit into the standard 410 slot.
When color ink is expended and black ink still remains, you can continue printing for a short time using only black ink. However, you should replace the expended ink cartridge(s) as soon as possible.
Press the home button, if necessary. Press the left or right arrow button to select Maintenance > Reset Ink Level. Press the start button, the OK button twice, and then the start button again. Press the right or left arrow button to highlight the ink tank you refilled and press the OK button to select it.
Ink cartridges can dry out over time. If they are sitting in your machine for an extended period, they will eventually dry up and become unusable. The simplest way to combat this problem is by printing more frequently or running regular cleans and ink tests to ensure the nozzles remain clean.

While Epson`s printers are inkjets, they have solved some of the technology`s problems.

Inks. Ballpoint pen ink is normally a paste containing around 25 to 40 percent dye. The dyes are suspended in a mixture of solvents and fatty acids. The most common of the solvents are benzyl alcohol or phenoxyethanol, which mix with the dyes and oils to create a smooth paste that dries quickly.
There are a number of porous pads in the printer that collect, distribute, and contain ink that is not used on printed pages. Ink is collected by these pads during the initial setup of the product, during cleaning cycles, and when printing borderless photographs.
Above or below the plastic holder containing the cartridges, a sticker indicates what type of ink cartridges your printer uses. The sticker also contains red, yellow and blue circles representing Magenta, Yellow and Cyan colors. If you see the sticker, you have an inkjet printer.

Epson 2400 waste ink tank full?
ANSWER : The “waste tank” is actually just a foam sponge cut to fit space under the print head travel. If you’re careful you can get it out with a pair of long ! tweezers, rinse it in water and dry it. It may come out in pieces…assemble them as a template to make a new one or try to buy a new one on- line. Before putting it back in clean the whole region under the head travel as best you can with plenty of paper towels. This is a messy job, so prevention will save a lot of cleanup. Good luck.

Epson R320 says black ink is empty
ANSWER : I have this printer, and while your advice says a refill shop can reset the chip, I was told by a chip -resetter device seller on ebay that this particular printer won’t work with their chip-resetter.

Epson ink cartridge leaking?
ANSWER : Posting this cause it worked for me. I have an Artisan 837 that was leaving pools of blue on the page. I tried Epson’s recommendation of cleaning the print path by pressing the copy button on the control panel (with nothing on the flatbed). Printed 5 pages and the last 2 were clean. Did a test print and the problem was back. Repeated a few times with the problem reocccuring. Switched out the cartridge. no better and now the printer doesn’t recognize its own brand cartridge. Yet, it accepts the 3rd party one.

Epson Artisan 837 Cyan Ink Blotches-leaking
ANSWER : Just encountered same problem (with light magenta) and discovered it was my own fault! There’s an adhesive-backed piece of aluminum foil that serves as one wall of the ink channels in the white plastic transition junction where it connects to the printhead. In trying to clean the printhead, I apparently nicked that foil, but didn’t notice when I reassembled, so I created a real mess in the printer. I cleaned everything up and then carefully (to cover the damage but not plug the ink channel) smeared a light coating of Goop household cement over the nicked hole, let it cure for about 6 hours, put everything together, and the leaking stopped.
