You need to reset the waste ink using the adjustment program like I suggested on the other post. If you don't have the 1900 adjustment program then ask equipment zone to provide that to you.

thank you ``bizographics`` for your suggestions.
i did contact Equipement Zone and Alex send me the Adjustment program.
As i did not purchase the printer from them i dont want to insist on support.
Linda was very kind and give me 15 min with a technicien.
but now i have an error (PF / ASF Reset error)
i did the reset...
and like i said i don't want to insist on support from Equipment Zone.
so this is the reason i ask if it was a good thing to do. ( the swap)

The error light number 2 is ink out error. The 8 solid lights are telling which color the printer thinks is out of ink. In your case it's all 8. Simple reset. Step one is to push the blue button on your control panel and this will disengage the print head carriage a bit over to the left. Step 2 is to push the 2 white reset buttons on the cartridges. Step 3 is to hit the blue button again and this should clear the lights and go into a head cleaning. If the lights do not reset then repeat the steps but on step 2 unplug the carts and plug them back in. Note that this is a common error and you will need to remember how to reset the ink out error.

How long have you had this printer for? Sounds like you could use some training.

Did you pull out the cartridges and push snap them back in place? Remember to do this after pushing the blue button then push the button again after snapping carts back in place. Don't think it would be the carriage.

I understand that you purchased this printer used from someone. Judging from the pictures you posted the printer was very poorly maintained. I understand that you are trying to save money but at a certain point you would probably save more by having it sent in to be repaired. The poor maintenance seems to have caused numerous problems which can only really be fixed by having a qualified technician go through it.

You need to change the printer to roll mode through changing eprom. you can do this with adjusteemnt software but you need the Eprom, which has the printer sen in roll mode.
