    I do not understand your answer. I have new black cartridge in the printer. It used to print just fine, now it only prints any color but black. If I change the document text to blue, it will print.

From the Epson web site:
Q:
Can the printer still print if an ink cartridge is expended or not installed? A: No. The printer will not operate if any cartridge is expended or removed. It's best to always have extra cartridges on hand.
I do this for fun not $$$.

    Hmm, I assume you have installed it correctly and removed the tape. Have you run the test page? Does it show black printing?

  • Jim Winger Oct 19, 2011

    Remove the black, double check that the ink nozzel is not blocked then re install and re-try the print test. Does the print manage show the black cartridge? Does it show full?

My printer wont print black and white only


My Epson Stylus cx8400 uses ink so fast. I would like to turn this into a black and white printer only. The problem is, I am out of one of the color ink cartridges and it won't let me proceed until I replace it. Is there a way, in the mode it's in now, to get this to print with the black and white only? I am nearly out of ink on all color cartridges now and do not want to purchase more at the high cost they are.

Thank you!

Cannot Print from on Epson CX8400 from Mac OS X Leopard


I could only get my CX8400 to work with Leopard once I manually selected the driver located at /Library/Printers/PPDs/Contents/Resources/EPSON Stylus CX8400.gz

I think that may have appeared after installing a driver downloaded off the web, but I didn't track my steps carefully enough to be certain. I used http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=90342&prodoid=63069506&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintosh

I know this is a bit jumbled, but hopefully it helps.
