Question about Epson Stylus Multifunction Inkjet Printer/ Copier/ Scanner

1 Answer

I use my Epson Stylus 7400 just as a stand alone copier. How can I get it to print with just a black ink cartridge? Can I put a black cartridge in place of the color one and have two black ink cartridges? I don't want to hook it to a computer because I don't use a computer.

There is no way, that printer will still consume some color due to color mixing. its just a small amount though but the thing is the printer will not work with one color out. it is because of the sensor that prevents it from damaging the printer head according to some people from epson. which is ****

I've just replaced the black ink cartridge for my Epson Stylus TX100, ink level is ok as the indicator shows. But i get blank prints for black, other colors are fine. What's wrong with the black ink...


There is nothing wrong with the black ink. Just run the head cleaning for better printing.

1. Go to printer and faxes
2. Right click your printer ( Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner InkJet)
3. Click printing preferences
4. Click Maintenance Tab
5. Click Head Cleaning
6. Run head cleaning for 5 times then try printing.

No ink output from Epson Stylus Color 777


I don't have an answer for you but I have the exact same problem.

I have an Epson Stylus Color 777 and I put in new cartridges (black and color) that I bought yesterday (03/05/10).

I pulled the tape off the cartridges and inserted them in their carriages. Everything works like usual except that no ink at all prints on the page. Comes out completely blank.

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

My Epson Stylus NX 400 is not printing.


no it cannot. Those multi-colored cartridge system requires that you put in every single color, AND ensure that they are not empty before they will print. Even if all you want is a black and white copy.

Epson includes step-by-step instructions on changing the ink cartridges in the Printing Preferences menu:

Click the start button and open the Control Panel.
Right click Printers and select Printing Preferences.
Click the Maintenance tab.
You should see a button that says Ink Cartridge Replacement.

Just follow the instructions and it walks you through it.

I have a epson stylus printer C65 series. I ran out of black ink so i changed the ink cartridge and it will only print colour not black now.


I have an Epson stylus 6000 series, second hand but was working just fine. I changed the ink cartridges and now the color won't print. Utilities shows all cartridges full, but only black and pale green-blue print. While it was printing color it was drinking the ink, but that's another story.

Epson Stylus CX3810 replace ink box. will not let me print.


I'm sorry to say, but I just spoke to epson and the printer will not print unless all cartridges have ink. The black ink only option is only used to extend the life of color cartriges. Just another way for them to get you to buy things you don't need.
