Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Inkjet Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

Epson Stylus dx 7450

I have an Epson Stylus DX 7450. It worked until the first set of cartridges was empty. Since then, it wouldn't print whole pages, only 1/4 or 1/3 of the page is printed, then it starts with the next page.

After I changed the cartridges, it worked for one or two pages, then it was broken again. Now, when I try to change setting, it does sometimes work that one page is printed properly, but after that it swithes back to 1/3 pages again...

I use the printer on a MacBook with Jaguar, and on a Laptop with WinXP (the computer of my roommate), if that has anything to do with it.

I had another such printer before, and it had the same problem, so I sent it to Epson and had it replaced. But I cannot have my printers replaced every time the ink is empty...

It sounds like a driver issue. Have you checked that bothcomputers have the correct driver for your printer?

You have a wide format printer but it has the same basic principle as the desktops. You can buy remanufactured cartridges which were reset for you. Or you can refill them. If you refill them, you need a resetter because Epson cartridges have a chip on them which needs to be reset. Because when they are empty, the printer will recognize it as empty and will not function till you put in a new cartridge. If you bought a remanufactured cartridge, and your printer won't recognize it, you need to go back to who sold you the cartridge and either have them reset it or give you a replacement.

SOURCE: 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.

Hi,

It sounds like you have incompatible cartridges for your printer... Some folks have reported that disabling the Status monitor and turning the printer off/on, plus rebooting the computer can solve this but that's just something I've heard.

You may want to double check with the ink supplier that they have provided the correct cartridges for your DX rather than a CX model.

How do I remove ink cartridges that still contain ink in DX 7450


There are several ways to this, you can let the cartridges get to the point where you can remove them then unplug the printer and remove the cartridges.
You must unplug the cord turning the printer off will not work as it will move the cartridges back to the home position.

Epson stylus DX 7450 doesn't print black


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,
