Question about Epson Stylus DX6050 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Epson stylus DX 7450 doesn't print black

My EpsonStylusDX7450 has run out of black ink in the past so i've set it to mix colours to get black-like colour. now the colour cardridges are out so i removed them and put a new black ink and want to print a text only document. my printer asks me to change colour cardridges which i don't need. i have hatched "black ink only" window in the settings - with no result. the technical support web site linked to my printer doesn't even enlit my printer (rubbish).
how can i print my text doc in black?
cheers

    Well, i have a similar problem. (Epson stylus dx7450) I changed the black ink, but used this time a not original ink- set: a compatible one.
    The printer does not print and wants me to install the original Epson ink set. My former Epson stylus worked with all compatible ink sets.

    Is it a problem of this model?

    Thnak you

Hello, This can be FIXED. I'm not trying to be helpful. I'm here to FIX your problem.

You want to make changes to the printer settings to once again print in Black and White or Grayscale mode by going to Start Menu, Control Panel, Printers. Right click your printer and select Properties. Now make the changes to everything prints Black and White or Grayscale. This will make the change effective system wide as opposed to what you did which was for a single print job in a program.

Now, unfortunately, you will still get an error message that your color cartridges are empty anyway because they are.

To disable the error message do this.
Press and Hold the Stop/Reset button for 6 full seconds and then release it? Use the one Mississippi method of counting.

This will disable the empty cartridge error on most Epson printers.

Let me know of your results as I am here to FIX your problem. I'm not here to be helpful. I will work with you until this is FIXED or is now FIXED. OK? Use the comment box below to let me know your results.

Regards,
Worldvet

    I have put it to greyscale like you said, but cannot find stop/reset button, on my printer there is a stop/clear button pressed that but nothing happened. On the printer it says to press ok and replace ink cartridges, tried switching off and start again, but the same message comes up?

How do i mix the colours on my stylus sx115 as i have run out of black but have the other 3 colours remaining?


Conserving Black Ink When the Cartridge Is Low (For Windows Only) The window below appears when black ink runs low and there is more color ink than black ink. It appears only when plain papers is selected as the paper type, and Text is selected as the Quality Option.

The window gives you the option to either continue using black ink normally or conserve black ink by using a mixture of color inks to create black. Click the Yes button to use a mixture of color inks to create black. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job. Click the No button to continue using the remaining black ink for the job you are printing. You will see the same window the next time you print a similar job, and again have the option to conserve black ink. Click Disable this feature to continue using the remaining black ink.

My Epson Stylus NX400 wont print because I'm out of colored ink. I just want to print in black and white and I cannot bypass the error screen.


This because the coloured ink is sometimes mixed to get black. You will also damage the print head on them. Replace coloured ink to fix.

EPSON PRINTERS how to replace inks in epson DX 7450


You must surely have sorted this one out by now Doris! However, if you haven't, how to change print cartridges on a DX7450 is very clearly explained in the user handbook (on the CD that came with your printer). Insert the CD and select "Custom Install" then "Users Guide". Once its installed, double click the new Epson Icon on your screen and selct "Printing" then "Replacing Ink Cartridges". If you don't have a CD, download the User's Guide from the Epson website at http://www.epson.com - just choose your locale, then select Get Drivers and Support - Printers.
