I have an Epsom Stylus CX 3900 Series printer and when i switch it on the red light comes on and will not print. I replaced the black ink cartridge but the other three colours are empty. Does this make the difference in the printer not printing?

Yes. some printers won't print if they don't have all colors full, even if they dont need them at that time. bad luck ... refill all of them.
I have photo R265 and one color is gist beggining to run out ... I can stand on my head and it won't print anything.

Hello, This happens with epson as it has a chip on the cartridge, which sometimes shows the cartridge empty even if there is some ink left on it. You can try this steps:- 1. With the printer turned on press the ink replace button, which will bring the print head to ink replacement position, pull out the cartridges one by one and cover the tip of the cartridge with some tape and shake the cartridges and reinsert it on the printer and press the ink replacement button once again, the printer will check the inks cartridges, if the inks is empty it will show the red light again, pressing the button once will bring the printer to ink replacement position with the cartridge to be replaced on the replacement position. you can also check on the printer software on the pc that which ink cartridge is emptied.
Hope this helps.

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......

CX 3900 Ink Problem


Normal 0 Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

Hi,
you could have one of several problems here.
i,d suggest printing several test pages, and observe whether the red comes through after this.
if this does,nt work remove the cartridge, and replace ensuring the cartridge goes in with a firm click.
finally if you have the original software installed for the printer, try a head cleaning operation.

Epsom R200 COPY INK DOESNT WORK


There is no solution, I have tried this myself, there are compatible inks for this product, you just got the wrong ones, However it may only be down to one of the inks, check the ink levels before removing, if all empty, then they are not compatible.

"Change cartridge" light stay's on after replacement


What exactly does the status monitor say? Your printer may have a problem with the counter or if the machine simply does not see the cart there could be an issue with the print head or the main board.
