Turn off the printer and computer. Make sure that the printer's interface cable is securely plugged in. Make sure that there is no packing material in the printer. Turn off the printer and the computer and disconnect the printer's interface cable. Then, print an operation check page. See Running a printer operation check. If the check page prints correctly, make sure that the printer software and your application are installed correctly. If you are trying to print a large image, your computer may not have enough memory to print. Try printing a smaller image. Windows Me and 98 users can clear any stalled print jobs from the Spool Manager. For instructions, see Using EPSON Spool Manager. If the printer sounds like it is trying to print, but is unable to, run the Head Cleaning utility. If this does not work, replace the ink cartridges. See Replacing an Empty Ink Cartridge for instructions.

Obtain a replacement cartridge of the appropriate type. To determine which cartridge requires replacement, see Replacing an Empty Ink Cartridge. If the ink out light is on and the ink cartridge is empty, replace the appropriate ink cartridge. To determine which ink cartridge is empty, see Replacing an Empty Ink Cartridge.
