Question about Epson Stylus DX4450 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

My Epson DX4450 is playing up. I have used some

My Epson DX4450 is playing up. I have used some none Epson inks for a year without problem. Now my colours are not true and I have horizontal lines all over images and my text has the top missing and is unreadable. I have cleaned the heads, about 6 times, replaced the cartridges still without joy.
Have I done irrepairable damage and do I need a new printer?
I checked and I have the latest printer driver. Help

I took all the inks out - and holding a cloth over the hole at the bottom shook them and then wiped the contacts with paper towels.

Replaced the contacts and left overnight for ink to charge

This morning working fine - mind you it was Friday 13th

Using non Epson inks.


I have a similar problem. I accept the Epson notice that a non-standard cartridge is in place, but it still refuses to work.

Epson stylus DX4450 i have changed the ink and the ink button the red light is still on and it will not let me print?


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?
Epson Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. That sounds like your problem. Also in Purchasing the Brother's . Color that should be Yellow, will turn out Green, Blue Brown, etc.
These printers have a chip, that will detect if it is Generic or Genunie. When using Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, but you have to fill them up yourself and I heard, quite MESSY.

So I learned, thru trial and error, that you must use the ORIGINAL Genuine Cartridges for these PRINTERS. Some people say some models work fine compatible, but not mine.......


I had to replace the printer, but Epson, Lexmark & Brothers are always on sale. My Brother & Epson cost me $50.00 with Rebate. Don’t waste too much ink in cleaning it.

This is the only advice I can give you. If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

DX4450 goes through motions of printing document but at the end there is nothing on the paper. Ink cartidges are full.


Did you just install the Ink Cartridges? If yes, did you take off strip?

Shut it down and wait 15 minutes, then turn back on.

Good Luck

Hello i changed the ink in my epson stylus dx4450 however the ink light is still on and it still wont print. i tried turning it off at the plug but still wont work


It seems that the connection on the cartridge and the printer are not proper. Remove the cartridge and clean the connectors on the cartridge and the printer. Also remove the tape on the print head.

Epson DX4450 printer


What about it? Huh? Give us a clue will ya? You want to know how to do it? When to do it? Or are you telling us you are doing it?

Put some detail in your posts please. And why post it under a generic problem for all printers. It's fairly obvious your problem relates to an Epson DX4450
