Problems after changing colour cartridges on Epson Stylus D68


A

I have changed all 4 colour cartridges on my fairly new Epson Stylus
D68 (it's not yet one year old) but I cannot get it to print the colour

red for love nor money.

I have repeatedly used the head cleaning facility in maintenance (from
printing preferences) but I still cannot get red out of this printer.
It was all fine before I changed the cartridges.


What is going wrong and how can I attempt to fixit?? Please help as my
9 year old child wants red all over her birthday invite that need to go

out tomorrow. Please help!

Within a few hours ago I had read of one person suggesting that one remove
the new cartridge and with a paperclip end push in and out on the new
cartridge over a few newspapers. He suggested that it would often clear a
sticky valve. Hopefully this method may work.
If it doesn't help I would then suggest calling Epson, as your printer
should be under warranty for a year.

As I suggested this morning to someone with the same problem:

Happens sometime.
One of the cures is to remove the cartridge, then insert a
straightened paper clip in the ink hole of the cartridge. Push in and
out a few times for the valve to wake up.
Do it over a newspaper or tissue, not on your lap as a few drops of
ink are likely to come out.
Re-insert cartridge. Should work.

You can also just put a few drops of ammoniated window cleaner into the
ink cartridge outlet and a few drops on the ink nipple (the spike that
punctures the ink cartridge) before installing it, this can help to
prevent an air lock, clean the valve and help the ink to run better.
