Epson software does not permit printing when any of the cartridges are empty. It is a way to make sure you purchase more ink (It stinks, we all agree). They also use the color cartridges to make up black ink, then print the black over the top!! Again a way to make sure it uses more ink than it is supposed to.
Good thing is there are plenty of compatibles on the market that work very well and cost much less than Epson OEM's.
Sorry it is not the answer you are looking for.

Can you still use the epson with only one full ink cartridge


No. You must have ink in all the Cartridges, and they all must be Genuine Epson Cartridges. pls read below:

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc. These printers have a CHIP that will detect if it is Generic or Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. .

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Epson STYLUS CX3900 All-In-One... Problem:


check in the printer driver properties to see which cart isn't recognising, usually it is a faulty or empty cartridge but can also be a faulty logic board or ink cartige board especially if ink has been spilled inside machine.
I have seen faulty brand new cartridges out of the box.
if another known good cartridge doesn't fix it take it in for service.
