Question about Epson Stylus DX4850 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Hi! I have the Epson DX4850 All-in-one printer. I just purchased a Continuous ink system for it and tried to install it. I followed the installation manual very carefully and when I had finished installing and waited for great results, guess what: nothing appeared to the paper. My mac is recognising the CISS cartridges, as it shows that they are full. Also the printer is not complaining anything, ie lack of ink, or any other fault. Then I tried to print with the original cartridges: un-installed the CISS system and put the originals back. the same continues: nothing comes to paper, even though the printer sounds and looks like it is printing. My Mac also tells correctly the ink levels of the original cartridges, so it seems to communicate with the chips of both systems. I'm wondering now what can be wrong and what could I do to fix it? I ordered the pigment ink CISS system from cityinkexpress uk. I need to stress, that before installing the CISS the printer printed perfectly fine.

How to print photos on dx4850 from memory card


DX4850 is not designed to print photo's standalone; epson creativity suite software is required at this link

Once installed (along with printer drivers), a memory card may be inserted into the printer, to be followed by a notification from computer that a new drive is included in the system.

In case of ms-windows, there are two ways to print a document:

1. Select drive (under My Computer) and right click desired file and just select print.
2. Run epson easy photo print software and select file(s) to print and the package will guide you till printout.

As simple as that.

good luck

I can't get my epson dx4850 to work with compatible ink crtridges

What do you mean by "not working." Are the cartridges not being recognized or is it just not printing.

If it's not printing you should try running multiple cleaning cycles. BUT, if the "compatible" cartridges are poor quality (internet specials) they may be preventing ink from flowing though the system, if you try to run cleaning cycles with no ink flowing you can ruin the printer.

As the owner of a Cartridge World I can tell you that we DO NOT have problems with those Epson cartridges, the ones we do have problems with, we don't sell and only offer Epson originals. Most all of our refilling is done in house by trained technicians, next to no outsourcing.

If the cartridges are good and the printhead isn't clearing it will likely need servicing which can easily costs more than a new printer. Servicing can be done at home but requires you to be fairly savvy around mechanical and electrical systems. Email for more support, address is on my profile page.

Service required epson stylus dx 4850


Like most Epson inkjet printers this message is to warn you that the waste ink pads are expected to be in need of replacement soon.

The options open to you are:
  • Get the printer serviced by a registered Epson printer tech. Usually costing as much, if not more than the printer
  • Reset the waste ink counter using a suitable utility and then installing an external waste ink tank to collect the waste ink.

The latter is much more cost effective and you can either source the parts for a tank yourself of purchase one of the kits available on ebay or in a number of other stores including my own :)

The reset utility is available via mediafire but you MUST scan it thoroughly for any trojans, virus or other malware before you attempt to use it. Then, if all is clean, check the instructions in detail and follow them carefully.

All in all, it's about half an hour to an hour of your time to complete this for the first time.

Hope that lot helps.

Epson printer DX4850

I've had the same trouble and found a solution but only by using google, as the epson website is COMPLETE **** and a nightmare for browsing.

The link below will show you where to obtain all drivers and software you need to set up the epson DX4850.

Just remember to select which operating system you're using (found on the left side of the screen) so you don't install the wrong version of drivers/software.

hope this helps anyone out.
