Epson CX7450 Black Ink Won't Work...

I changed all ink cartridges today, and I have reloaded them several times trying to fix the problem. The colors work fine. I have realligned, cleaned, etc. etc. And I have gone thru the manufacturers troubleshooter with no success. My daughter has a report due tomorrow, and I can't get the black ink to work.

    Same thing is happening to me.

    The instructions say not to take tape off.

  • Reyalsnik Mar 13, 2009

    I have the same problem and just replaced the cartridge with a brand new one, thinking that was the problem. Black does not print at all in any cleaning or alignment test. It also does not work in the Copy feature. The printer is reading that it is a full cartridge. It was printing fine when I purchased it. This occurred after about a month of not using it.

    Same exact problem. Bought new Epson black ink cartridge. Lights flash but won't print or copy.

  • kimiemich Mar 27, 2009

    Exact same problem. Have replaced all cartridges, but the light remains beside the ink drop picture on the printer. I can't find any explanation for why it's not working. It was printing fine before, but I haven't used it in about a month. If ANYONE finds out how to fix this, please chime in!

    Same problem here.  Epson has such limited customer service hours that I haven't been able to reach them.  There has to be some fix for this.

I was having the same problem. This fixed it:

Lift up the scanner bed (top part) of the printer to expose the cartridges.

Push the red triangle button once. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move to the middle. On the housing of the printer (the non-moving part), there is an arrow that will point to the empty cartridge.

Push the red triangle button again to see if the next cartridge is empty. Repeat this step, noting which cartridges are empty, until the cartridge carrier moves to the right. Now you can replace each cartridge that is empty.

After replacing the empty cartridges, push the red triangle button again, and the carrier will begin moving back and forth (cleaning itself). Once it stops, it should be positioned on the far right side.

Lower the scanner bed to "close" the printer. The ink light should go off and you should be able to print.

Make sure the tape has been removed from the cartridge.
The cartridge could be defective, the only way to tell is go buy a band new black epson cartridge and see if that solves your problem.
I hope this helped.
Good Luck.

Your ink cartridge nozzles may be clogged. You may try to do a cleaning cartridge nozzles cycle.
Open the Lexmark Solution Center. Click on the Maintenance tab. Click on Clean to fix horizontal streaks. Click on Print. Depending on the diagonal lines results, you can click on Clean Again.

Black cartridge not printing


This is what worked (so far) with my Dell1.gif AIO A940 printer1.gif that wouldn't print black ink.

It worked for awhile when I chose photo/glossy paper, but then it quit printing again (see below).

PRINT, PROPERTIES, PAPER SETUP, SPECIALTY PAPER, PHOTO/GLOSSY


I got it to print, again, by putting SEVERAL papers in the feeder (instead of just 1) - there is a sensor that is supposed to automatically detect paper type, and it might not be working right, especially with one or only a couple of sheets.

Hi, I really appericate all your efforts to fix the issue the issue usually occures if any one of the cartridge is defective or low in ink or both the cartridge are defective. We can isolate the issue only by removing the both the cartridges out of the printer and check for the expiry dates printed on the cartridges as if the cartridges are expired also leads to this message. If the cartridge are not expired and have minumial ink in it you can try the below procedure to isolate the defective cartridge Once the both the cartridges are out of the printer insert only the black cartridge in the printer and check for the message if the message is install color cartridge the black cartridge and printer is detecting fine. If the message is check right cartridge this shows that the black cartridge is defective. If the message is insert left cartridge or color cartridge remove the black cartridge out and insert only the color cartridge and check with the message if the message is insert the black cartridge the color cartridge is working fine. And when the color cartridge is in the printer and if the message prompts to check left or color cartridge the color cartridge seems to be defective so replace the defective one will fix the issue So in isolation we can find the defective cartridge and fix the issue by replacing the defective one.. Hope this will help you to fix the issue.. Wish you success. Regards, Barret.
