Question about Epson Stylus CX4800 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

New printer clogged

Go this free CX4800 with laptop purchase. Gave to granddaughter. Hooked it up and it worked fine. Cartridge ran (black) out of ink so she removed it. By the time I purchased a new one and installed it I think ink dried up in printer nozzle or something like that. I see commercial products claiming it will fix the problem. Fairly pricey to buy. Anything else I can use and how do I do this. I have no idea. Thanks.

    I don't know how people run the cleaner cycle on the CX4800. I try to run mine and it says "ink out" and won't run. I hear the ink slosh around inside the cartidge, I poke a needle in the end of the cartridge and ink comes out, but the red light keeps flashing and it refuses to print and refuses to run the cleaner cycle when ink is out. I try to print black and white and it won't print black because one of the colors is out. I must replace all 4 cartridges after printing a few page.

Hi,
No many of the printers will need to have both the color and the black cartridges to work...
You will have to purchase and install a new cartridge to get it working correctly.

Ink cardridge replacement


Try cleaning the print heads (that option should be on your printer's menu). It does use up some ink, but in my experience with Epson printers, it needs to be done way too often. If that doesn't work, try another new black ink cartridge. I just had the same problem with an HP printer that was fixed by using another new cartridge.

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.

Canon mx700 not recognizing cartridges


I suspect that your have a damaged refilled cartridge. Also, you may have a clogged nozzle. Canon printers are sensitive to the quality of the ink used in the cartridges and refill ink sometimes does not meet the manufacturer's specifications. You can check this by inserting a new OEM cartridge, running the deep cleaning utillity three times and a aligning the printhead. The other problem may be that the electronic chip on the refilled cartridge may either be damaged or blocked by dried ink. In any case, you need to discard the failing cartridge and replace it.
Let me know if this solves the problem. Thanks.

Cyan ink empty but i only want to print black


pHi

The majority of printers out there will not let you print if
a particular color is empty. Especially on inkjets. This prevents the nozzles from clogging up.

I have installed all new cartridges. "Ink is out" comes up when I try to print. It is properly installed and is the second set of ink cartridge this has happened with. The "On" and 'Ink" lights do not stop flashing. The printer does not see the new cartridges.

No black print


I just installed a new black ink cartridge and it won't print. My new color one will. It worked fine until it ran out of ink and I replaced it with a new one.

Restart after replace ink cartridge


my CX4800 has done the same thing. I ran the utilities dozens of times, replaced every cartridge and it feeds papers the print head moves like it's printing but nothing is imaged on the paper.
Searching the web is my last chance to fix it before i toss this 18 month old printer and never buy an epson again.

No black ink print. Prints in light blue


Cartriges have a shelf life. It's printing in blue either because it has dried up or is out. Different cartriges have different timelines but if you haven't been using the printer often, it could have dried up or is simply out of ink. I would suggest first to try cleaning the head of the cartrige where the ink comes out with alcohol and a Q-tip and then if that doesn't work, buying a new black cartrige.
