Epson printers are high-performing printing machines but in a remote possibility, your Epson printer may suffer from an “Epson printer not printing after changing ink” issue when you change one or all of the cartridges of your Epson printer.
Friends, I recently changed my Epson printer’s cartridges but eventually found that my Epson printer wasn’t printing. To fix this issue of “Epson printer not printing after changing ink”, I tried a couple of ways after which my Epson printer started printing.
So guys here is a detailed walkthrough that throws enough light on how to set your Epson printer come on stream after changing your Epson printer cartridge.
Almost all Epson ink cartridges are available with a small protective band generally affixed on your Epson cartridges’ spouts which might remain affixed at the time when you mount the ink cartridge in your Epson printer thereby leading to no discharge of ink from the cartridge’s nozzles.
This protective taping will undoubtedly stop the outflow of ink and hence must be removed to facilitate seamless discharge of ink from the nozzle and ultimately fix the issue of “Epson printer not printing after changing ink”.
Quite often your Epson printer may read the cartridge level as empty due to non-recognition of new cartridges thereby actually giving rise to the “Epson printer not printing after changing ink” issue. One simple way to deal with such a situation is to bypass the Epson cartridge check by a quick cartridge reset.
Here is the process to get the cartridge reset.
Step 1 - Long press the ink button by raising the printer’s top cover.
Step 2 - Find the cartridge access position and cause the cartridge holder to move towards it.
Step 3 - Without taking the cartridge out, lowering the lid of the cartridge which is out-of-ink after opening it.
Step 4 - Cover the printer and resume printing.
Many a time if you don’t take a printout for long then the ink in the cartridge begins drying up thereby causing the “Epson printer not printing after changing ink” issue. To fix this, you need to run an extended cleaning cycle by pressing and holding the “Cleaning” button for four seconds.
You can further follow what is enunciated in user manuals pertaining to running the extended clean-up. This would ultimately pave way for your Epson printer starting to recognize the ink cartridge.
Quite often for cost-related considerations, people may resort to refilling the existing ink cartridge, this may result in the “Epson printer not printing after changing ink” issue. To fix such an issue, you must carefully inject some extra ink through the exit hole.
Also, you should choose to pull the malfunctioning cartridge out and must leave the cartridge unused for two hours to make the air bubbles disappear in cases where air bubbles block the flow of ink from the cartridge’s nozzles.
