Epson Photo 830 - No Colours!

  Dollybird 13:48 02 Oct 2005

My Epson Stylus Photo 830 will not print in colours.
Maintenance stating I have more than 50% inks.
Have done numerous head cleans. Black printing OK. Any help would be apreciated.

are the colour inks genuine epson?


  Dollybird 13:53 02 Oct 2005

No they're not Epson but I have used these tyre of inks for a while.

the colours level can give false availability in non epson, check by substitution and you will probably resolve it.

I'll try that and thanks for your help.

Downloaded this and still thinks I have ink, done
headclean and other bits, have managed a test print more colours coming through but still not right!
Good little program though. Guess I'll have to buy a new cartidge.

My advice:-

1 - steer clear of the cheaper 'compatible' cartridges.

2 - i'm constantly hearing Choice Stationary cartridges are v.good, and they guarantee that if your printer is damaged by their cartridges they will repair or replace it.

3 - run a colour print at least once a week to prevent the ink jets from drying out.

4 - shop around, epson cartridges CAN be got for bargain prices - eBay etc.
