Question about Epson CX8400 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Epson cx8400 wants me to replace colored inks

When i set the printer to print in only black, it still wants me to replace the cyan, magenta, and yellow. why doesn't it just print with only a full black cartridge? how can it require you to have all the colors when you only need black?

    Epson printer's when printing on black it needs all inks even you are printing on black ONLY. It is the design of their printer.

SOURCE: Am getting an error message that the printer

Insert all ink tank. Turn on printer. Check status. Replace ink tank using "how to" procedure at status monitor. But you do'nt need to unplug ink tank, just follow, next... next... ok. Last, procedure is ink charging. When chip recognized, ink cahrging will done. But if not, the screen "doesn't recognize the ink " will appear. Don't close it. Push ink button minimum 3 times. 1 to move head to checking empty (error) ink tank, 2 to move head to gap. 3 to move head to parking position. It's methode to force epprom.

How can i use epson stylus c45 without black ink its urgent plz


If this is a color printer, then you cannot use it without the "Black" cartridge.

Most printer manufacturers will pull from the "Black" ink to print black on color images. They do this to save on creating a "processed black" from the color inks.

Just curious, are you using a "CMYK" system? (Cyan, Magenta,Yellow and Black inks)

My printer wont print black and white only


My Epson Stylus cx8400 uses ink so fast. I would like to turn this into a black and white printer only. The problem is, I am out of one of the color ink cartridges and it won't let me proceed until I replace it. Is there a way, in the mode it's in now, to get this to print with the black and white only? I am nearly out of ink on all color cartridges now and do not want to purchase more at the high cost they are.

Thank you!

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run


Hi,
If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,

Very Faint Printouts


I find the best way to clean the heads is buy some cleaning cartridges as they have cleaning fluid in them and use them to clean it will take about 10 or more times to clean the heads then put the color ones back in and try again.
Just keep putting it on clean the head don't do a print out till at lest you have cleaned 10 or more times.
