I have replaced all the ink cartridges with new ones and the Cyan one still shows that it is fully empty. The red light is on on my RX425 and the printer will not print. I have replaced the Cyan cartridge with another one and it still shows it as empty. I have switched the printer on and off a few times, bu the red light is still on. Is there anything that I can do?

Re: Cyan Cartridge not working
Show empty or not recognized (cross sign)? Check connector at chip and at head carriage. Do replacement procedure form status monitor (how to..). Do replacement ink tank one by one with cyan ink first.

Hi there, No Cartridge will show on the display if the machine cannot recognize one of the cartridge or one of the ink is empty. To make sure about the real issue unplug the mach from the power outlet then plug it back in after 10 seconds. If the display show:"ink empty C" it means the cyan/blue needs to be replace. "ink empty M" it means the magenta/pink needs to be replace. "ink empty BK" it means that the black needs to replace. If the display shows "ink empty Y" it means that yellow needs to be replace. Even if it looks like the cartridge is full, it really needs to be replace so that the machine will work again. Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks
maybe the cartridge is wrong, release it and clean the electrical contacts, put them again one by one, if notting happen, try this
As the printer operates, it moves ink from the ink cartridges into a printhead reservoir. The printer does not deliver a message when an ink cartridge goes empty, because it still has ink in the reservoir. The printer continues printing until the ink level in the reservoir falls to a first trigger point - then a message appears advising the printer owner to Replace Cartridges Soon . At this point, other cartridges that are empty but have not reached the trigger point are also mentioned in the message, to save trips to the retailer. After the first trigger point, the printer can continue printing until ink levels in the reservoir reach a second trigger point. At the second trigger point there is only enough ink left to perform vital servicing tasks, and a new message appears, saying Ink Cartridges Empty . The options offered depend on the usable inks remaining. If no options are offered, the cartridges indicated must be replaced before printing can continue.
The Ink Cartridges Empty options are described in the table below:
Ink colors outOptionPrint mode possible
Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)
Continue with other colors
Cyan/Magenta/Yellow mode (composite black)
Text and photo quality will differ from those printed when all colors are available
Light Cyan or Light Magenta (either or both)
Cyan, Magenta, or Yellow (any or all)
(Black still available)
Print with black ink only
No. You need all the cartridges installed with functioning chips for your printer to work. The reason why you need all the colors when all you print is black is because a small amount of color prints when you print black. The manufacturers want to make up their R&D costs on the printers by selling lots of expensive ink.
Get yourself a couple of sets of empty cartridges from cobraink.com.
It is so easy to fill your own from the removable rubber cap, on the top of the cartridge. Not to mention what you will be doing for the environment.
I have been using these for over a year and have saved a ton of money
This man also sells the ink that you will need. ALSO tell him to send them empty, otherwise he will automaticly send them full of "pigment "ink, because you want to use an ink dye
Ye of course it could be faulty and Epsons are sometimes very fussy about using third party carts. Get it replaced at your store, try a different brand or buy a genuine Epson cart if you can afford it.
