The Epson does not like Generic Cartridges. It must be Epson Genunine Cartridges. After going thru alot of ink cartridges, finally I went back to Genuine, and it started printing fine. ! Go Figure. !!!
I have about 2 dozens cartridges. hahaha want them?

Good Luck :0)

With the printer turned-on, lift the cover.

Remove the colour-cartridge.

Ran out of black ink and want to print something using colour on epson c46 how do i do it


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges? ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!
That sounds like your problem.

In Purchasing Epson's CX 5400, CX4600, & CX7400 and more, I found out that Epson does not like Generic Printer Cartridges. I also Purchased a Brother MFC-240C All-In-One InkJet Printer. That also does not like Generic Print Cartridges. 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 Genuine. When they see it’s Generic Cartridges, it will print lines thru the words, stripes across the picture and also do a mix match with the colors. It also will not let you print anything, if only one of the cartridges is empty.

I wanted to print only Black, and would not let me, because I did not have any ink in one of my cyan cartridges. Go figure.

That's what these Companies do., so they can keep selling the ink cartridges. Some Printers, are able to use Generic, and some are refillable. Some you can refill 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. .


IF YOU ARE USING GENERIC CARTRIDGES, MAYBE IT WOULD BE BETTER IF YOU DISABLE THE INK MONITOR.

This is the only advice I can give you.



If you find this helpful, pls rate me.

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

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..

I got new cartridges today but cannot print in colour. How do i fix this?


I hope that you installed a color cartridge and not just black. Also, the tube that delivers the color ink on those printers gets clogged. Especially if it has been used for color printing in awhile. Its not any easy or clean fix to get dried ink out of a tube. Also, printers are so inexpensive to replace that replacement is usually better than repair.

Epson C46 colour printer green and red lights are flashing....but


Basically your printer says that you need to replace the waste ink pads. If this happens for the first time to this printer you can just reset the counter using SSC Service Utility (http://www.ssclg.com/epson.shtml) or if it happened more than once you shoul first replace the ink pads and then reset the counter or the printer may overflow. That's it.
