Re: epson stylus cx4800 won't print

Hi, reason we sell epson printers are they are the cheapest to run, but they do get alot of problems with the print heads, if you change from using refill ink kits to compatible ink cartridges you would not have to reset the chip each time, otherwise you will have to change to a more expensive to run printer like the HP, or Lexmark, lexmark is the most expensive for cartridges but it has the print heads built into the cartridge and not the printer itsself, epson only have the chip on the cartridge.
You can use the refill kits on most HP & Lexmark without having to reset the cartridge all you need to do is refill it.
but for every 3 for example you may have to buy a new cartridge which will be more expensive, ie if you get lines through your print, as the print head will probably get blocked on cartrdige.

My Epson Stylus CX4200 will not print because my Cyan ink is out. I tried printing in black and white only but still won't print because of the one empty cartridge. Is there any way I can still print...

I have a CX4800 and after clicking Print, I click Properties, then check Black ink only (is this how you are printing black and white - or is your document black and white)
If you haven't tried this option - it is worth a shot.

My printer doesn't recognise the new refill; and i can't seem to overide it to print. I tried a cheaper refill and then bought a genuine epson and it still doesn't recognise the replacement cartridge. ...

If this printer takes the Epson 69 cartridge you need to make sure the chip is replaced or reset on the refills you buy. I own a Cartridge World ink refilling store and I can't fill these cartridges yet because there are not replacement chips (that don't violate Epson patents) or a resetter for the chip. The chip communicates with the printer how much ink it thinks is left in the cartridge so you don't run it dry and ruin your printer. Once the chip says the cartridge is empty it will refuse to print until the chip is reset. It seems to me like you bought two refill sets from sellers that are scamming the consumer by not mentioning the chip problem. This is the main reason why I don't recommend internet refills is because it is really easy to take advantage of people. I would not buy refills until a reputable store like Cartridge World or Office Depot sells refills.

Epson cx8400 can`t recognise the ink cartridge!!!

If you mean you have a chip resetter and have reset the chip when you say you've "shock the ink cartridge" then it sounds like the chip on the cartridge is damaged and can no longer be reset. To fix the problem you either need to get a replacement chip or a new cartridge.

Epson CX4800 cannot clean the print heads

Please remove the cartridges from the printer. Take a dry lint free paper towel and gently wipe the contacts on the back of the cartridge (not the bottom from where ink is present). Wipe the contacts inside the printer (on cartridge carrier). Please snap the cartridges back into the cartridge carrier and please try to print a printer self test.

Please help me, my epson inkjet all in one printing just blank blank blank

Epson printers will not accept continuous ink cartridges. That is why you are getting blank pages. I recommend just buying the ink cartridge as you need them.

Good Luck

There are stripes through the whole page of what I'm printing

Hi, its the print heads are clogged up, couple of things to try, head cleaning would be the first option, right click on your printer status program ie on the bottom right of the screen the small icon, and you should find maintenance or head cleaning, try doing this a few times, print something out see if any change, if still no success, change the ink cartridge, if still no success last try would be its a head cleaning cartridge to try and clean the blocked print head, if none of the above work you would be better replacing the printer as epson charges £75 + vat to repair any printer, the last time i tried to buy print heads at trade they were about £48+vat & delivery and is really a nightmare to fit with epson,most new epson printers seem to only last about 15 months on average but its the amount of money you can save through using compatible ink, as we only sell epson printers ourselfs and this happens with 99% of returned printers..
