SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black

Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

SOURCE: Epson printer says "cannot recognize ink cartridges".

Are you using genuine epson cartridges? Many generics simply dont work on the newer printers. Once the printer decides the cartridge is empty, it sends a signal to the chip and that's it. You might hear ink, but if the chip says empty you can't use it. It also has the annoying habit of doing this when there's still 10-15% of the ink left.
I use reusable cartridges from http://www.ccs-digital.com They hold 2/3 more ink and the chips automatically reset to full if you remove and re-insert the cartridge. Instead of replacing the entire cartridge when it's empty, you pop out an internal ink tank and replace just that. So you know the chip has already been recognized by your printer. The ink tanks cost under $3. I think these are a brilliant invention.

New setup-- doesn't recognise the ink cartridges --- correctly fitted


Did you fix the black cartridge in the black and the corresponding colours correctly? Did you make sure that you removed all the plastic covers from the cartridges? Disconnect all the cables and Switch off the printer leave it for a few minutes and reconnect the cables and switch on the printer and it should work.

I have a epson workforce 7010, the black light will not go off. I tried different cartridge and tried cleaning the heads. what else may be wrong?


It could be possible that both of the cartridges you're using are empty. Also, Epson released a Firmware update on all workforce printers that really fix a lot of bugs that are with the systems. If you know they're both full, put the printer in the change in position (press ink button while printer is in standby with the power light steady) wipe the chip of the cartridge and blow on the metal connector inside the cartridge carriage. After doing all these processes close the door to the carriage, press the ink button and it should take right off.

My printer doesn't print black. I did all the maintenance on it but it hasn't fixed it. I even bought a new print cartridge but that didn't fix it either.


You do need the color installed sadly.

This printer needs a colour cartridge to be installed to be able to print black therefore you do need all 4 cartridges to have ink in order for your printer to print.

I have an epson DX4050. I currently have a full blank ink cartridge but have one empty colour catridge and 2 other colour catridges which are running low. I want to photocopy a peice of document in black...


First, using B & W to copy a photo will cause large black blotches.

B & W are actually made up of shades of Black. To get the best quality for a B & W photo, switch to "Grayscale"

Next, is the black cartridge full? Are you using any type of refilled (absolutely worst possible choice) or a third party cartridge (second worst possible choice).

If you only filled the cartridges with ink they will not work.

The chip on the cartridges needs resetting.
To do that you would have to buy an Epson cartridge chip resetter..

How do i change the colour cartridge for a epson style c42+ printer - if i press the red LED button for 6 secs only the black cartridge comes into the open.! how do i get the colour cartridge into view ?


after the black cartridge moves to the ink changing position, push the 'ink' button one more time to move the carriage to the position to replace the colour cartridge. in some cases this will only work when the printer indicates that the color cartridge is empty.

Ink Cartridge


Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.
