SOURCE: My EpsonDX4450 won't print Black ink only when the Cyan is empty

Much as I'd love to say that Epson are being a bunch of "robbing gits" as you put it, in this instance they are actually helping protect your investment. If the printer was allowed to print without a valid ink supply on one of the ink types it would soon fill the printhead with either foam or air. Either promotes clogging. Now, whilst you might be certain that you're using just black, the printer may be programmed to use a small amount of the other colours (depends on the settings) so common sense often needs dispensing with. It's a pain in the backside, granted but it is intended to stop you from having much bigger issues later on. Appreciate that's not a "fix" but hopefully it explains why you're in the bind you are. My advice would be to purchase a cheap mono laser, especially if your printing it primarily of black text type... It's cheaper and you don't have to worry about consumables you don't use. Martin

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge for my Epson Stylus TX100, ink level is ok as the indicator shows. But i get blank prints for black, other colors are fine. What's wrong with the black ink...


There is nothing wrong with the black ink. Just run the head cleaning for better printing.

1. Go to printer and faxes
2. Right click your printer ( Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner InkJet)
3. Click printing preferences
4. Click Maintenance Tab
5. Click Head Cleaning
6. Run head cleaning for 5 times then try printing.

hello

i have this link below that gives you allinformation about your Epson printer. specifically the manual , required for review to address the issue with the ink cartridge error.

Run a Printer Check A printer check will help you determine if the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating properly. 1. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series and your computer, if connected. 2. Disconnect any connected USB cables. 3. Load plain paper in the sheet feeder. 4. Press Setup. 5. Select Maintenance and press OK. 6. Select Nozzle Check and press OK. 7. Press cx7400_cx8400_ug.1.109.1.jpg Start. 8. The Epson Stylus CX8400 Series begins printing the nozzle check pattern. • If the page prints, your Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating. Your problem may be caused by your computer, cable, software, or setting selections. Check for additional solutions or re-install your software. If the pattern on the page has gaps, clean or align the print head. • If the page does not print, the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series may have a problem. Check for additional solutions.

My Epson Stylus CX4200 will not print because my Cyan ink is out. I tried printing in black and white only but still won't print because of the one empty cartridge. Is there any way I can still print...


I have a CX4800 and after clicking Print, I click Properties, then check Black ink only (is this how you are printing black and white - or is your document black and white)
If you haven't tried this option - it is worth a shot.

You can't print in black only mode because printer need all cartridges not empty to initialized and working.Don't try to refill this cartridges, it's have a chip and you need to reset it too.Just look in your are for non OEM ink cartridges.Thea are 2-3 times cheaper.

Epson Stylus Photo PX800FW doesn't print text


printer working ok-did 50 colour photos ,6x4 when i made a mistake and pushed the print button when there was still about 1 inch of the previous photo still being printed.This print emerged with overprint of about 1".Thereafter the printer has refused to operate properly the next print being heavily discoloured.It then told me to replace the light magenta cartridge-this I did and the discolouration changed hew.It then told me to change the magenta and light cyan carts.-I did and discolouration changed again.It then told me to change the yellow and cyan=siscolouration now bright
red over coloured. I then successfully printed a letter in B&W proving that the black cartridge was still working.However as soon as I tried again to print a coloured photo it now tells me that the machine does not recognise the black cartridge and orders me to change it and until I do refuses to take any instructions telling me to install the black cartridge cprrectly.The black cartridge installed isout half full and has successfully printed copies and photos.I have carried out the suggested remedies by the machine and none were effectuve.How do it the infernal machine working again???

You may have a leaky blue (cyan) cartridge that has polluted the black output.

Well worth checking the inside of the printhead (where the cartridges are located) and see if there's a build up of ink.

Also, well worth checking that you haven't received an incorrectly marked cartridge that contains cyan instead of black ink.

May not be the direct solution but it will certainly help isolate a few possible causes.

Hope it helps.
