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.

    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.

Changed black ink cartridge for epson stylus d120 but not working


Usually when this happens the printer fails to goes through the motions of the printing process, kind of stands still with indicator lights just blinking away. This could be as a result of either of these scenarios.
i.                     Ink cartridge has developed incompatibility or is incompatible
The Solution is to try an older/another cartridge (doesn’t matter if ink is finished. You must replace cartridge one at a time). If lights stop blinking it confirms that your cartridge has become incompatible or developed incompatibility. Also if your printer is the type that can work with only one cartridge, remove one after the other (closing back the lid/cover) to determine which in the set (black or color) has become incompatible. At the instance the incompatible one is removed and you close the lid, the blinking will stop (for printers that can print with one ink cartridge only). Just replace the incompatible one and start printing again. In most cases the issue is always with one cartridge. But if both are affected, you have to replace both. Because of this type of problem, always keep used cartridges somewhere safe; they come in handy for this type of troubleshooting.
ii.                   The Cartridge electronic panel  is dirty
The electronic panel on the cartridge that makes contact with the cartridge carrier inside the printer is dirty and needs cleaning.  This electronic panel is front part of the cartridge with copper “dots”.
The Solution is to try to clean this panel with a piece of folded tissue paper soaked in a bit of methylated spirit. Also try to clean the area in the cartridge carrier/holder that makes contact with the cartridge’s electronic panel (Usually this is more difficult). If you cannot reach it with your fingers, use a stick or something with tissue wrapped around it. Allow to dry well and return the cartridges, close the cover. The blinking should stop if the electronic panel is the issue. Once the blinking stops the printer will print.

No ink output from Epson Stylus Color 777


I don't have an answer for you but I have the exact same problem.

I have an Epson Stylus Color 777 and I put in new cartridges (black and color) that I bought yesterday (03/05/10).

I pulled the tape off the cartridges and inserted them in their carriages. Everything works like usual except that no ink at all prints on the page. Comes out completely blank.

My Epson cx7450 ran out of ink a while ago. I


Did you remove the cartridges when it went out of ink? If so, the printer head is clogged. Anyway, If you didn't remove the cartridges and the "a while ago" means "Long time ago", is more likely the printer head is clogged. You may need to run the "cleaning printer head" feature from the printer or replace the printer head.

Inkjet printers should be used frequently to avoid this issue.

Why won't my CX9400F recognize Epson ink cartridges


The Epson CX9400F printer seems to require replacement of all the color ink cartridges, even if only the Black is empty.

I print almost exclusively in Black, but with my first change of Black, I was forced to change all the color. At the time I thought Epson did not provide completely filled color ink cartridges.

Just yesterday, I replaced Black and the printer complained it did not recognize the rest of color cartridges. So I replaced all the other color ink cartridges and now it works fine.

You might want to check out www.clickinks.com for cheaper, mail order alternatives which are Epson ink compatible, if you are not in a hurry.

UNABLE TO USE #88 INK FOR MY EPSON STYLUS PRINTER.


I don't know where you got your #88 cartridges from or who told you that they were compatible with your printer, but they were wrong.

The CX7450 will only work with the #69 type cartridges.

The cartridges themselves may look similar but the chip programming will be different for each.

Hope that helps.

Black and white not printing correctly, color is fine


If you are not using Epson ink, your printer will do this. Epson printers hate knock-off ink. Always use Epson ink if you want to keep your printer working properly. To solve the problem you are having, try cleaning the ink tubes. Make sure you re-install them properly. Hope this helps. Charlene

New black ink cartridge installed, message is "out of ink"


It seems that the printer computer is not getting the signal from the new cartridge. Try looking at the place where the cartridge contacts touch the printer cartridge socket. If nothing is bent out of place try rubbing the contacts a little with a paper towel

After cartridge change, the printer will not work


you might not like it, but here it is, it is the truth

Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.
