Question about Epson Stylus C42+ InkJet Printer

1 Answer

To make my Epson printer, model "Epson stylus C42UX" work in India, with Indian ink catridges T038 & T039


I have an Epson Printer made in Canada, which uses the ink catridges T036 & T037. Now I have brought it to India. But here, the catridges T036 & T037 are not available. Only T038 & T039 are available.

Can something be done to make my printer work with the ink catridges available in India? Can any configuration change help?

Thanks in Advance.

This is a tricky one, but there are possibilities.
1. Buy a set of epson C42 cartridges from the cheapest source and keep refilling them - you will need a (very cheap) resetter.
2. Transfer the C42 chip to the C41 cartridge - they are only clipped in place. I don't know if this will work because I only have knowledge of C42 cartridges - the C41 cartridges may be keyed so they wont fit in a C42 cartridge carrier. You may be able to identify a clone manufacturer for which this is possible. You will also need the resetter for this solution.
3. Fit a Continuous ink system (CISS) see for example

    In addition you might have a look at European E-Bay sellers of ink cartridges - some do ship worldwide and may be quite reasonable including postage, at least for clone cartridges.

My epson stylus c43sx did not installed or not found

If you are just looking for a basic inkjet color printer for your term papers, or resumes, then this might work fine for you. This uses T038 ink cartridge for Black and White, and a T039 for colored.
However, if you are doing printing most of the time, you might want to invest in an ink-saving printer. This one, from my experiences, empties my cartridge so easily, especially the colored ink.
Other good feature of this printer is you can choose from five print modes. Draft, lets you print speedily and is useful if you just want too transfer some long notes from your screen to a paper. The print is quite thin like a dot matrix print and uses very little ink, but it is quite readable and clean.

Cabling problem??

perhaps that the cable isn't put in the way it should , but it could also well be that you need a chip resetter for epson cartridges to let it recognize the cartridges correctly
