The easy answer is yes, but Epson's are notorious for clogging up when you are not using epson genuine ink. Everytime I have used anything but an epson cartridge im my printer it has cost me more to clean it then if I spent the extra $ on epson ink. Hope this helps.

How to print using black ink only on Espon dx5050?


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges??

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

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 MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. 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. .


If you have Genuine Epson Cartridges, and have ink in ALL THE CARTRIDGES, to print in black only, Make the following settings on the control panel. SEE BELOW:

Select the number of copies.
Select l [Plain Paper].
Select the paper size you loaded.
To make a color copy, press the
x StartE[Color] button.
To make a black-and-white copy,
press the x Start D [B&W] button.
If you find this information helpful, pls rate me.

Epson SX200 refuses to recognise compatible cartridges


Hi Howard,

Bottom line, if the printer doesn't accept them, then they are not compatible... I'd recommend returning them for a refund and find a supplier that has tried and tested cartridges.

I'd love to be able to recommend a supplier but as I don't have an SX200 I can't... Others might be able to help if you can indicate where you are in the world as the SX200 is, I believe, zone specific.

Best of luck

Epson DX7400 not accepting non standard inks


It's entirely possible that you've been sold CX7400 cartridges and not DX compatible versions.

I would see if you can source some cartridges from somewhere in the UK that are compatible and see if that solves the problem...

It's also possible that the cartridge chips are soiled, broken or similar so I'd take them back to the store and get a refund.

Hope that helps.

My sx200 wont accept compatable ink cartridges


If you are using refilled ink with epson it can cause the print head to go bad. Epson is very picking when it comes to their ink. I would suggest using there ink

Epsom stylus CX4700 won't print - new ink cartridges installed


They cut costs on Epson compatible cartridges by using low quality ink and chips or not resetting the chips at all. Sounds like you got cartridges that the chips were not reset on so your printer thinks all the cartridges are empty. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I would never recommend purchasing compatible Epson cartridges from anyone. I would buy refills of Epson brand cartridges and make sure the seller reset the chips.

My epson r285 wont recognise compatable inks


My Epson R285 will not recognise compatible cartridges,mainly the black.I ran out of black ink and installed a compatible cartridge but it did not recognise it.To get the printer running I had to buy a genuine one which worked.I then ran out of all the other colours soon after and installed compatible ones which were accepted.I have now ran out of the black again but the printer will not accept the compatible cartridge.How can I solve this problem as the printer has accepted black compatibles before.
Thanks Padgy

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.
