My Epson R3000 will not print.
I recently replaced my EPSON cartridges with ConeColorPro K3 Vivid Ink using their refillable cartridges.
I have probably printed about 30 or so 7’ * 5” high quality prints.
I was very happy with the results but……
About 2 weeks ago I wanted to make a few prints,
At first the printer started okay but did not print.
The ink out warning came on but all the cartridges were full.
I tried restarting a few times and eventually removed all the cartridges and replaced them.
Suddenly the printer worked and I successfully made the prints.
Yesterday I wanted to make some prints.
The printer showed the Epson logo and indicated that all cartridges were full.
When I tried to print it gave me a Printer error message and the yellow Ink Out light came on.
When I tried again the power light and ink out warning light came on, nothing on the printer screen.
After trying a few times I resorted to taking the cartridges out and replacing them.
Unfortunately it did not do the trick.
I have cleaned the ink cartridge chips with alcohol
I switched the printer on, the menu window remained blank
The power light came on but remained flashing
The yellow light on the ink warning lamp remained flashing
There was absolutely no start-up mechanical noises from the computer.
I have checked the Printing preferences
Utilities not working
Status Monitor not working
I have checked ink levels, all columns greyed out
I have checked Printer Properties
Under general it shows the Printer name Epson Stylus Photo R3000
There is nothing under location or comments
I checked the Properties
Device Status : This device is working properly!!!
Under Version Info it indicated Epson Colour Printing System 6.75 AF_C1
Can anyone help me to get the Printer to printer
