Epson DX8400 printer keeps rejecting ink cartridges

I hate my printer.
I have just purchased a set of ink cartridges (that I checked are compatable with the printer) due to the fact that it said that it didnt recognise the ones in it - fair enough they had been there for quite a while and i thought that may have been the reason.
So I put the new ones in this evening and i printed 4 pictures and now it is rejecting them again.
Any help?

    But some people have been saying that they paid for expensive genuine epson cartridges and the printer has shown the same error?

    My new DX8400 does the same with the black Epson ink

  • Anonymous Dec 06, 2008

    Yeah I have the same problem, I installed a new black cartridge and now its rejecting cyan and the new black one.. Its odd, cause I didnt do anything to the cyan one and it still rejects it.

    I took all the cartridges out and back in, but my printer still rejects the cyan and the new black one.. Im quite in trouble now cause I cant print my documents at all.

My Epson DX8400 won't recognise the ink cartridge.

This normally happens if it is a generic ink cartridges. If your printer does not print be sure to select, I have installed new ink or some-thing to that effect when the sign pops up. In the software that came with your printer, try setting to, have replaced ink cartridges. Do you get flashing light alternatively? If so this indicates that the waste ink tanks are full and either need to be replaced or cleaned. You can do it or it can be done by technician called a service! If you do it you would take the printer apart to get to the waste ink sponges. Then remove them and clean out the ink with water, use disposable gloves. Dry them, reinstall, reassemble the printer and reset the ink counters. This is complected enough when dealing with an ink-jet printer, your printer is all in one so I would assume it to be a more complected task.
Above was for additional help! Best en-quire to make sure that the ink you purchased, will work in your printer, phone shops etc...
Hope this gets you printing again!
Thanking you

Printing in just black and white

Epson,. has it rigged, that you must have ink in all the cartridges.............! Doesnt make a difference, if you are printing black and white ONLY.

You have to replace them.

Good Luck......

Epson Stylus DX 8400


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.

Epson DX8400: how can i get it to print black only

Sorry Desperate. All inkjet printers, from all companies,  are programed to only operate with ink in all containers to avoid other problems. Their is no workaround. Please rate me not harshly just  because you don't like the answer. Rate based upon the truth of an answer.

Compatible ink cartridges dx8400

Epson cartridges are microchipped.

Do your new cartridges carry the same chip?

If not, they will not work.

If all else fails, return them to the supplier and explain they are not recognised by your printer.

Epson DX8400 cartridge

It is most likely a faulty chip, return the cartridge to the supplier for a replacement. In my experience as many as 5% of compatible cartriges are faulty
