Question about Epson STYLUS CX5900 Printer

1 Answer

Hello. My Epson CX5900 is reading zero ink in all cartridges after I replaced the Magenta. So that one is full and the others are half full and the printer is reading them all as zero. Is there a way to reset the printer so it reads the cartridges correctly?

Are you using Genunine Cartridges!!!!

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

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. 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. .

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

Thanks and Good Luck :0)

Epson 1400 not recognizing an epson ink cartridge


not necessarily faulty cartridge - had same problem went thru various cartridges some worked some didn't - in fact they weren't epson - so bought epson from office depot and that would not work, so not an issue of ink dried up - if yr printer is fairly old may be easier just to replace rather than waste time and money on trying to figure out problem

I have 2 sets of ink cartridges half full and I keep getting an error message saying I am out of magenta. I have an Epson Stylus CX6400


ink cartridges have different compartments for each color, sometimes when one color runs out, even though the cartridge looks like it has ink in it, it will not work since a specific color is missing.

you must replace the cartridges, or continue to use them missing that particular color.

I have a used C60. I have replaced both ink cartridges with Epson cartridges. When printing in color, the colors are not accurate. For example, red comes out yellow. Also, there are lines running through...


Hi there. The reason for your problem is that the colour cartridge contains cyan, magenta and yellow ink, plus a black cartridge of course. All the other myriad colours are produced by mixing these four basic colours. So, if you print red, it requires ink from both the magenta and yellow cartridges. Thus if your red produces a yellow print, it means your magenta is not printing. This can be due to a number of reasons, mainly an empty or faulty magenta cartridge or blocked magenta print nozzles.

If you wish me to help you with sorting out the lack of magenta, please post a new comment to this effect.

Can I print "Black only on the Epson BX 300 F ?


Since the printer insists on having all 4 cartridges (non-empty) fitted before it will print anything, the only recourse to fitting new cartridges is to fool the printer into thinking your empty magenta cartridge has ink in it. You can do this by using a cartridge resetting tool to reset the magenta cartridge chip so it reads "full". A resetter tool can be obtained from e-bay very cheaply (£4 or less). You will find sellers who ship worldwide on E-Bay UK.

Be aware though, that if you forget to select monochrome printing, the colour ink is also used in black printing - and printing with a "dry" cartridge can damage the print head. You can guard against this by filling your magenta cartridge with distilled water.

You will also find sellers of magenta cartridges (and the others of course) on E-Bay UK who ship worldwide.

Ink Cartridge


Some of Epson's cartridges went bad that way. It may be a bad cartridge. Get a new one, pull that one out and see what happens. If it works, call Epson for a refund. They had a class action suit for that type of thing, they lost and paid off. I would think they will help you right away.

C84 printer


Sorry but It uses Durabrite ink which tends to turn into hard gel if not printed at least once a week. Its less painful and expensive to just throw the printer out and buy a new one. I recommend the canon PIXMA ip3500. It lets you remove the printhead for cleaning unlike the Epson. If you want to try your luck at unclogging the printer heres a link to a unclogging kit but be warned that results are not guaranteed!
