Question about Epson Stylus CX9400 Photo Printer

1 Answer

Horrible ink issues..

I recently got a new Epson Stylus CX9400 Fax Series and i'm having to buy new ink cartriges every week almost,after only about 15 prints!The cyan cartridge is the worst;it runs out every week or so.The black is the best,i've had the same cartridge since i got it 2-3 months ago,and it still hasn't run out.Yet the cyan doesn't even last a week!Is this an issue with the cartridges themselves,the printer,or is the "empty" just a false accusation?

Unless you are printing a lot in that color, my Epson Stylus photo color R300 uses black at about twice the rate as the color ones. Most packages or ink, I find, also come with two black and one of every color. All my color ones seem to emply at approximately the same time as the others.

I would like to refill Epson Stylus CX9400 old ink


You cant recode the cartridge it is programmed to die and fry. You can get chips but many DIY filling options are going to cause you other issues down the road, they are a cheap way to run your printer but eventually willc ause you issues such as ink leaks which leads to the in pad needing to be renewed not to mention some other horror stories. I would alays reccomend OEM inks, but if non OEM is hte way you want to go contact a retail outlet that specialises in refilling spent cartridges.

Just purchase and set up Epson Stylus CX9400 Fax Series. States "Cannot recognize ink cartridges." It also has a RED box with a Y and a YELLOW box with a Y both have same number (69) next to them Removed...


Make sure cartridges are part number 69 on all four or 68 on the black if its the high cap cart.

Also check the carts contacts and the machines contacts in the cartridge recetacle for contamination or damage.

I wouldn't recommend it because it will void your Epson warranty.

Color Ink prints are nice, but this cannot be an everyday printer --- the cartridges will put you in the poor house.

Buy a cheap monochrome laser printer (recommend the Brother brand) and save the purple ink for the elections.

Cheers!

There is no chip resetter for this model at this time. However, one is to be available in the near future. So for now you must purchase new/refilled cartridges.

New out of box!!


If you already have tried reseating all of the inks and and inks are still not recognized, Please contact Epson tech support for a replacement ink or if they find out after some diagnostics that it is the printer that is having an issue they would be replacing your printer.

HI bingoliz,

You are right, you are supposed to get an ink with it. Here's what call Epson technical support and inform them that you didnt get an ink with it. Try to doublecheck the foams in the boxes because sometimes inks are embedded on those foams. if there is none call this number 562-276-4382

Hope this helps
