Are you using Genunine Cartridges!!!! You do not mention brand of printer.

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)

Hi I've got an epson stylus dx4400 printer. The printer is a little strange because two of the ink cartridges are reading full, even though one of them is completley empty and the other is about a quater...


There is no sensor that reads actual quantity of the ink in the printer. The measurements are based on calculations how many pages are printed and what has been printed after last ink cartridge replacement. Probably the printer has been tricked that there is a new ink cartridge, but there is the old one.
Often a small object can fall in the paper tray and go down the paper path, preventig paper from picking up and moving. Rotate the printer with the front side up and try with thin and long flat skrewdriver to rise the thin long rollers that hold the paper to the feed roller, one after another. These rollers are held there by springs. If someting is stuck behind them, it should fall down. I've found there coins, pensils, rullers, paper-clips and so on.

Print keeps fading, even though using new ink


check your printer settings, make sure color only is not checked off, or if you mainly print black and white documents, you should have that option checked, you may have to go into advance printer options to do this.

Did you replace the ink cartridge with a new one, or did you refill an old one.

Some printers have a memory and can tell which ink cartridge is in them. This prevents them from easily being fooled into printing with refilled cartridges.

Another option is that you changed the ink cartridge without following the specific guidelines for replacement e.g. To replace the ink cartridge, select replace ink cartridge from the main menu, then open the printer panel when the light flashes X number of times.

You might also try unplugging the printer for a couple of minutes the reset it.

Ink cartridge continues to read replace after


There should be a setting in the printer controls or print manager software that will allow you to reset these. Did you purchase new, or did you refill the ones you had? The computer reads the code on the back of the print cartridge and will recognize it as the same one you took out and will register it as empty even though you just filled it. The refill kits come with instructions on how to resolve this issue. Remember, if all else fails, read the instructions!
If you installed NEW cartridges and the printer management system doesn't have an option, try simply uninstalling the print drivers and reinstalling them.

Indicator light remains lit even though it is a full cartridge


It seems there are "new" chips & "old" chips in these ink cartridges for the HP 1200 inkjet printer. I have a cartridge with a "new" chip in and it is working fine. The printer doesn't read the "old" chips. Something to watch for when using refilled ink cartridges.
