Epson cartridges are microchipped.

Do your new cartridges carry the same chip?

If not, they will not work.

If all else fails, return them to the supplier and explain they are not recognised by your printer.

I have bought numerous cartidges for my epson dx8400, after trying to do a nozzle clean, it then tells me that it doesnt recognise the cartridges i have spent an absolute fortune please help


OK, were the cartridges genuine Epson cartridges, or an off brand? Because Epson and other manufacturers usually will guarantee that their brand cartridges work best with their brand of printer.

Also, if you bought them from a major retailer like Walmart, they'll accept exchanges and returns on defective items within 30 days, or so.

Printing in just black and white


Epson,. has it rigged, that you must have ink in all the cartridges.............! Doesnt make a difference, if you are printing black and white ONLY.

You have to replace them.

Good Luck......

DX8400 printer will not recognise ink cartridges even though they are not empty


If you are not using OEM cartridges, the changes are that the ink cartridges are faulty. Some aftermarket and refilled cartridges do not have the chip to make them compatible with the OEM cartridges so that the are not recognized by the printer electronics. The first thing I would do is insert new OEM cartridges. If the problem goes away, I would return the faulty cartridges to the vendor for either an exchange or refund.
This should take care of the problem. If it doesn't let me know.
Thanks.

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.

Epson DX8400 cartridge


It is most likely a faulty chip, return the cartridge to the supplier for a replacement. In my experience as many as 5% of compatible cartriges are faulty
