I got a CX9400Fax as a replacement to a CX6600 that "reached the end of its useful life". It was only 1 1/2 old and the authorized repair place wanted $100.00 to change the waste ink pads. The CX 9400 takes 4 of the epson #69 cartridge. I bought some of the generic ones and the printer will not accept them. Is there any way to override this monopolistic system so I can use the less expensive ink cartridge? If epson's price were a little more reasonable I would use them but they are so overpriced.

Re: Epson CX 9400 fax ink cartridges.
Hi i dont think the problem will be with the replacement pads as they wouldnt make them if they did not work your unit shouldnt be able to tell their not originals anyway.
The only reason people tend to buy originals is for the simple fact that you might get a poorer quality of print from the cheaper ones.
Up till now i have had no problem using the cheaper ones i havnt got exactly same unit as you but it sounds like they are not fitting in the unit properly.
Do you still have the ones you took out because if you do you could try putting them in again just to see if the unit exepts them ones or not this way you would eliminate problems with the unit itself.
Check that they are deffinately the same and make sure they are fitted properly if you are sure the unit is working then the problem is with the pads.
Make sure the ones you brought are exactly the same as the old ones the problem shouldnt be the brand as this is what they make the cheaper ones for whilst im waiting for your reply i will look for a manuall for your unit and tell you what i find out ok.
Let me know how you get on and i will try and assist you further ok........

The projector could be overheating or the lamp has reached its end of life. Solution: 1. Clean or replace the air filter.2. Check the lamp run time. If the lamp time has reached its end of life, replace the lamp. Use the manual to do the above steps. Keep me posted. Jas247
That message indicates that the porous waste ink pads inside your product are near the end of their service life. Epson recommends replacing the printer, but if you want to continue using it, I'd suggest having the printer serviced at an Epson Customer Care Center. You may also be able to have the ink pads replaced by an independent service provider and use the Ink Pad Reset Utility to reset the Ink Pad Counter to continue using the printer. However, replacement of ink pads is relatively expensive and may not be a good investment for lower cost printers because the printers' other components also may be near the end of usable life. Hope that helps!
Regarding the Epson Artisan 800, I must thank FixYa and ask that the search for a solution be discontinued.Yesterday, I had an unfortunate accident while trying to unclog the print head which had been printing poorly over the last three months. I used a syringe to force a solvent solution through the clogged head. To my utter surprise the supply line exploded with a loud "POP" meanwhile spraying ink all over the place. At this point it was clear that it was pointless trying to redeem the old Artisan 800. Thank you FixYa. Henry.
VK means black developer has reached end of life. You can safly carry on using the copier with this message displayed but over time the copy quality may slowly degrade. You will need to call a Sharp authorized dealer to replace the developer in the developer unit.
I just read this article about the subject you ask about!
How old is the freezer?
Repair or replace?
When to pull the plug on your old refrigerator and or freezer
It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs, such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.
Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems in the owner's manual.
Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model? The answer depends mostly on the age of your refrigerator, how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.
Follow these guidelines:
When a repair makes sense.
If your refrigerator is under warranty or less than four years old (three years for top-freezers), paying for a repair makes sense. Note that refrigerators under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician; readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.
When a repair might be a wise choice.
If your refrigerator is out of warranty and is four to seven years old, it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair. But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage, given that today's models are quieter and have added features. Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008, are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent more efficient than those built before 1993.
When it pays to replace.
The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new refrigerator. Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive top-freezer refrigerator six or more years old or a bottom-freezer or side-by-side eight or more years old.
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent of a refrigerator you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

The service life of a device also called a service cycle can amount to thousands of hours. So go ahead and scan them all, I doubt that you would scan enough to render the unit defective but if you are using a new unit dont worry since it is still under warranty. You can always have the store or the manufacturer replace it. Also, as long as you put the scanner on a stable and level base then there should not be a probelm. Be careful as well when moving the scanner from place to place use the lock under the scanner if you will move it
Make those arragemnets, it needs its waste ink pads replaced and ink clean counter reset via Epson Service software (Eagle)
If you just rest counter you are likely to have ink running loose into printer, there are 8 seperate ink pads in these none of them easy to replace, machine need to be fully stripped to do so.
These macnes count how many cleans they do and stop when figure that epson estimate ink pads are full is reached. It is more ecomical to replace inkjets than to fix, buy a new one with gen inks warranty for same price as repair bill.
