Question about Epson Stylus CX5000 InkJet Photo Printer

Open Question

Epson cx500 printer insists on me changing color print cartridges even if I NEVER use color. Indeed cartridges feel full and make sloshing sounds when shaken. Romoving, shaking, and replacing does not work. It seems like printer knows how many pages have been printed and demands more ink even though ink remains sufficient. Is there a print driver that just leaves me alone to decide WHEN and IF I wish to change any cartridges??? Bud at cfo@BudnBeth.com

Will the Epson cx3900 print if one of the coloured cartrige is empty


No unfortunately the printer will not print unless all cartridges are present and have an adequate supply of ink inside them. Even if your only printing black and the black cartridge is there and full, it will still need the color cartridge ot be present and partically full of ink in order to print.

If a cartridge is expended, you must replace it to be able to print. If a cartridge is low, you can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement. You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expendedI have come across this issue many times and unforunately you have to replace the colour carts in order to continue to use the printer.

Empty colour cardridge, cant print black and white


Hi!

I'm afraid that most printers nowadays simply refuse to print unless you have ink in BOTH cartridges. No workaround. At least with an
Epson you have the possiblily of buying much less expensive generic refills...If you do this always try and find reviews of the brand of refills...caveat emptor! (buyer beware)

Sorry..

Non printing epson c20ux


Sounds like color cartridge ran out. Were u using color to print black?

Try new color cartridge.

Then if you don't need color go in and set to use black cartridge to print black (text).

If you need color on something only takes a minute to turn color back on.

Since printer worked you can go in and select black which uses the black cartridge and if it prints gives validity to a bad/empty color cartridge.

Good luck.

Epson ink jet printers require all of the ink cartridges to have ink in them in order to print any color, black and white, or grayscale images. Epson printers contain a permanent print head that needs to be charged with all colors to work. Even when users are printing black text only, a small amount of color ink is used to keep the print head charged for color printing and prevent air bubbles from entering the color print nozzles which can damage the print head. Therefore, once one of the cartridges are expended, the printer signals you to replace the cartridge in order for printing to continue.

Epson C66 won't print without color cartidges


epson printers won't really print if one cartridge is not detected or detected as empty. the only option that i can suggest to you is that, buy a continous ink kit at any ink refilling station in your place. i highly recommend that dont leave a cartridge empty with ink cause it might clog your printhead. using a continous ink system's cartridge is auto reset, whenever the printer says that the cartridge is empty, it will automatically resets itself. ink refill kit comes with 100+ml of ink per color i think. and it is much cheaper using original epson ink.
