Question about Epson Stylus NX400 InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I just got an NX400, mostly to use as a scanner (and not install the ink 'til later). Is there a way to bypass the "ERROR" message and just use the "scan" feature? I was told by the GEEK that it is possible.

I think the printer will stop you scanning from its own control panel without ink installed but I have heard that you bypass this problem if you use the software on the computer to scan

This works on some of the earlier CX and RX models but no idea if it will work on the NX types.

Hope that helps.

Installed a new ink cartridge (black). When printing a page no ink appear on paper (black).


An ink cartridge may be incorrectly installed. Follow thesesteps to make sure the cartridges are correctly installed:
  1. Make sure the Epson Stylus NX400 is turned on.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • If your printer indicates that an ink cartridge is expended, press OK.
    • If your printer does not indicate that any ink cartridge is expended, press SETUP, select MAINTENANCE, and press OK. Then select CHANGE INK CARTRIDGE and press OK.
  3. Open the scanner.
  4. Open the cartridge cover.
  5. Press down all the ink cartridges until they click into place.
    Note: If a cartridge is properly seated already, you may not hear a click.
    Caution: If you remove a low or expended ink cartridge, you cannot reinstall and use the cartridge.
  6. Close the cartridge cover and push it down until it clicks into place.
  7. Close the scanner.
  8. Press OK to begin charging the ink. This takes about 2 minutes.
    You'll see a message on the LCD screen when ink charging is finished.
    Caution: Never turn off the Epson Stylus while ink is charging or you'll waste ink.
    If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and store it in the same environment as the Epson Stylus with the label facing upward. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches. Do not touch the ink cartridge ink supply port or surrounding area, and do not store the cartridge upside down.

    If you remove an ink cartridge for later use, protect the ink supply area from dirt and dust and store it in the same environment as the Epson Stylus with the label facing upward. Note that there is a valve in the ink supply port, making covers or plugs unnecessary, but care is needed to prevent the ink from staining items that the cartridge touches.

My Epson Stylus NX400 wont print because I'm out of colored ink. I just want to print in black and white and I cannot bypass the error screen.


This because the coloured ink is sometimes mixed to get black. You will also damage the print head on them. Replace coloured ink to fix.

How do I replace ink cartridge?


you can use the maintenance utility on your driver to perform ink cartridge replacement. or you can perform this method should you be using it stand alone:

Remove and Install Cartridges Be sure you have your replacement cartridges handy before you begin. You must install new cartridges immediately after removing the old ones. Caution:
Do not open ink cartridge packages until you are ready to install the ink. Cartridges are vacuum packed to maintain reliability.

1. Turn on the Epson Stylus NX400 Series. If a cartridge is low or expended, you see a message on the Epson Stylus NX400 Series LCD display screen. If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until the cartridge needs replacement.
If you’re replacing a cartridge before you see a message on the Epson Stylus NX400 Series
LCD display screen, press Setup, select Maintenance, and press OK. Then select Change Ink Cartridge and press OK.
follow on through each one of the inks and it should be good there on

Mac OSX 10.4.11 Error when installing the Epson NX400


If you're running the install program from the install disk CD, it may be attempting to create a work folder on the CD instead of your hard drive. I would drag a copy of the install program onto your hard drive first and then launch the copy on your hard drive.
Let me know if that solves your install woes...
best of luck on this.

Error message saying cannot recognise ink cartridges


hello

Double check to see if the cartridges that came with your machine are really the correct ones. And if they are then make sure they are snapped in securely as they must make a solid contact to read the cartridges. Also make sure the drivers and software are properly installed onto your computer.Also make sure that the tape that is usually on the cartridges to protect them in handling and shipping are removed before installation.

regards

Just installed Epson NX400 printer. Keep getting M88/69 "Cannot recognize ink cartridges" error. Tried re-inserting cartidges twice already and still same error. What next?


I found a solution to the same prolem that you guys have. I took the cartridges out and shook them horizontally, instead of vertically, with the large surface up for 3-4 seconds. Re-inserted them back in. Then I started seeing on the LCD "Recharging Cartridge". When it returned to regular copy screen, I turned the printer off and turned it back on. No more error message. It's been working for almost a day now. Try it to see if that works for you. Good Luck.

FYI. I just bought NX400 last Friday. The error message came on this morning.
