Epsom Stylus C70+ cartridge problem

Likes # 0

Good evening,

I am hoping someone can help me!!

I have lost my manual so I can not refer to that. For the last 2 or 3 hours I have been swapping catridges with no effect, and I am now beginning to pull my hair out. What happened was I was just about to print a letter when it stopped. I had noticed a couple of days ago that I was running low on ink, but I thought there was enough for the two letters I had to print. On the top of the cover there are 3 lights, the left hand one tells you - or so I believe - that there is a fault. At the moment, it is either on or flashing, permanently.

I installed 4 new cartriges - which I got from Cartridge People, where the existing ones were from - and pushed them in. Not all clicked, but I need the letters, so I pushed on. No luck. I tried downloading manuals but got nowhere, although one told me how to change cartridges - not a lot of help. I can not get rid of this red light, where I have sometimes got the ink levels; what I have now is it showing all 4 inks sort of greyed out with a red circle with a white cross on the right hand one, but it had clicked into place. I have now tried 8 new cartridges and am getting nowhere, does anyone have any idea of what I have done wrong? Or is it that I have bought some duff cartridges?

Any help/suggestions/ideas will be very gratefully received.

Many thanks in anticipation.

northumbria61,

Many thanks for your reply, which I will read shortly. The panic has now subsided, although for how long is debateable, as I had forgotten to switch it off last night - I have the computer and all the peropherals controlled by a 10-plug tower. So I switched it on this morning, and it came on AND it is working!!!! HOW??? WHY??? Not a clue, but I will be checking it and your suggestion out later this morning!!

Many, many thanks for your reply.

You have accidentally done one of things I usually try when I have a bit of electronics which is playing up and that is switch it off and on again. Surprising how often that sorts it out!

....that is switch it off and on again...

That is what we always did in the days of the Spectrum. It usually cured the problem.
