Question about Epson Stylus cx7450 All-In-One InkJet Printer

Open Question

Hi...finally got my epson cx7450 cleaned and installed all cartridges...I was just doing a final check and now i get all lights on...I did add some cleaning fluid to the pad and pushed it down to clean out the ink...I wonder if i moved something or hopefully didn't break something..It seems that the ink carrage does not stay all the way to the right and the white plastic 'stop' does not pop up to the left of the carrage, and i get a little rubbing sound when it seems like it is trying to set up...makes me wonder...if you can help great..also is there somewhere i can view the internal parts and see how they should be set up..any help appreciated as this pringer has been a pain in the behind, all started with needing to replace ink and clean heads...wonder what you would recommend for inexpensive printer (brand? epson, hp, cannon or something else and model) thanks for any help or advice

SOURCE: Epson Stylus Photo R800 Print Head Nozzles ??

Don't use nozzles clean function, besides ink consuming it can cause damages that cannot be fixed: black lines on the back side of the page that will be permanent. Instead put two photo paper together (2x260 gr) and push the two papers together into the printer while printing a motive including many colors. Do so a couple of times and the clogg usually disappears. Good luck! jonk

I have replaced new cartridge in Epson Stylus D120 still printer is not working and shows cartridge empty light on.


I would expect you used a refilled cartridge.
The epson cartridge needs to be reprogrammed to say its full again.
You can get the reprogrammer of ebay very cheaply. you just hold the re programer on the contact pins for a couple of seconds until the light flashes.
Several printer manufactures are now doing this to lock you into their ink cartridges.

My Epson cx7450 ran out of ink a while ago. I


Did you remove the cartridges when it went out of ink? If so, the printer head is clogged. Anyway, If you didn't remove the cartridges and the "a while ago" means "Long time ago", is more likely the printer head is clogged. You may need to run the "cleaning printer head" feature from the printer or replace the printer head.

Inkjet printers should be used frequently to avoid this issue.

How to change cartrage for printer cx7450


The printer's control panel & menu where you should toggle thru until you find the setting to change the printer's cartridge.
It should tell you to now open up the top potion of the printer, This is because the heads must move into the correct position in which you can then remove the old cartridge and install the new one.

Best of luck and I hope this helps.

How to use only black cartridge on cx7450 epson !


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. You need to consider 2 things, firstly the official line: Epson (and all other inkjet manufacturers) do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing. It is also why the "print in Black only" option (available on some printers) only works when the coloured inks are OK.
The 2nd unofficial line is that it is a win-win situation for manufacturers. Firstly they get to cut down on costly warranty call outs for blocked heads (replacement printers, technician manhours, etc) and secondly they get to sell lots more inks (Ka-ching!). If you really want to print black text only (and save cash on price per-print) then a mono-laser printer is the best way as they can now be bought at inkjet prices.

Epson CX7450 paper jammed


In some cases, this is cause by a nozzle that got clogged during the jam. You can run head cleaning utility either from the printer or from the computer.

1. Make sure that there are no error lights (red lights), just a solid green light.
2. Take out all cartridges from the printer and put them back in.
3. Once the printer is done charging the inks and you have a solid green light again. Hold down the Ink Button for 3 seconds, after this you'll hear movements within the printer, this is the head cleaning process.
4. Once the printer stops making noises, and you have a solid green light again. Power Off the printer
5. Once the unit is OFF, hold down the paper button while turning the printer ON. Once you see the blinking green light release BOTH buttons. The printer will then print the nozzle check pattern.

* Note: The nozzle check pattern should display all colors in the printer and there should be no gap or break between the lines itself.

6. Do this step 3-4 consecutive times. and that should resolve you concern

Printer epson CX7450


Hi altashll,

Printers can be such a headache. Your problem could be one of two things.

Change the Ink
First, your printer may just be low on ink and the cartridge needs replaced.

Clean the Print Head
If you are having the same problems after replacing the cartridge, you may need to clean the Print Head. This is easier than it sounds. All you have to do is press and hold the Stop button for at least 3 seconds until the On light starts flashing. Then release. You will hear the printer making quite a racket, but the cleaning should only last 1 minute (do not turn off your printer during this process or you may damage it permanently)

Good luck.
