Epson L3110 Printer Ink Refill and Troubleshooting

Updated: Sep 5, 2020

Above is a basic instructional video on how to add and refill your ink for your EPSON L3110 printer. This printer is sort of unique. I’ve never had to refill one quite like this but it’s actually quite easy.

Step 1: Open your ink bottle packaging

Step 2: Flip open Epson L3110 ink compartment

Step 3: Flip open black ink insertion filling section

Step 4: Upend and insert black ink bottle into receptacle

Step 5: Let flow into compartment until full. Monitor through viewing window

Step 6: Repeat with other colors. Close it up.

If it doesn't print, watch my this video:

Is your Paper Cycling through your printer but no ink showing up? Epson L13110 Printer Won't Print? Here is the Quick Solution and simple instructions. Get Your L3110 Working Again Fast!

1. Click the "Windows" icon

6. Click "Open queue"

8. Select "Printing Preferences" from dropdown

9. Select "Maintenance" in new Epson L3110 Printing Preferences

10. Select "Power Cleaning" and Click "Next".

This worked like a charm for me to get my printer back printing. I was one step away from taking it apart and somehow cleaning the ink receptacle by hand. I probably would have ruined it by doing so and been forced to toss the whole thing. Really glad this worked. The very first thing I tried was to make sure there was enough in the receptacles. It was obvious there was as it hasn't printed since I filled them myself. Just to go through the steps I did a visual check anyway and I could see through the front of the receptacle that there was enough ink (it was almost full). Then I pulled out the Epson L3110 user's guide/owner's manual and followed the recommended steps there which included holding the button with the triangular shaped design in it down for 5 seconds until the power button blinked. This had it run through a cycle of print head cleaning. Once into the printer preferences queue and maintenance (as mentioned above) I tried the nozzle cleaning function, then the head cleaning function and both of these didn't work. I'd never heard of doing a power cleaning before so I was losing hope and had visions of tossing this one into the recycle and having to purchase a new one. Luckily I tried the "Power Cleaning" cycle and it worked!!. It is hard to say if the fact that it worked was a combination of all of the cycles that I ran the printer through or if I could have just gone to the power cleaning cycle. Regardless, it doesn't matter because it works now. What I suspect was the problem was that the ink dried and hardened in the oriface in which it comes out thereby not letting any of the liquid ink pass by. Just a guess. It also could have been the fact that the printer was brand new and there was something from the manufacturing process that was blocking it.
