Reasons For Epson ET-2750 Not Printing
Once you know why this problem is occurring, you can fix it quickly. Here are some possible reasons why your Epson ET-2750 printer is not printing color.
Ink Level Low: When the ink level of your printer is low, you will get a notification alert on your computer. This alert will tell you that your printer is running out of ink in one tank or more so that means it’s time to refill the ink tank of your printer. Always go for the same ink required for your printer model. Epson recommends using the official Epson 502 Ink Bottles.
Unsuitable Ink: Ever refill your printer ink tank with ink that is not compatible with your printer’s model? The ink that is not compatible with a printer won’t perform correctly.
However, Epson ET 2750 comes with two years of ink in the box. So after that period, when you refill the tank, use the required type of ink.
Outdated Driver: Epson sends out updates for the driver software of their printers from time to time. If you use the outdated version of the drivers instead of the latest one, your printer may not perform properly, so it may not print in colour. So regular checking for the latest printer driver and updating it keeps your printer working properly.
Clogged Nozzles: If the printhead nozzles are clogged with ink or dirt, your printer will not print.
Dried Ink: Another likely reason for your Epson printer not printing in colour is that there may be dried ink in the tank. Usually, this occurs when you leave your printer unused for a long time or keep the tank cover open for a long time. During this time, the ink in the tank dries up.
Internal Glitches: Printing many pages for a long time can often lead to your printer not working correctly or stop printing in colour. So, after printing for a long time, give your printer a rest for around 10 minutes or restart it.
