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)

Printer will not print in black. Colour ink appears to be out. Should this effect it


Yes for sure If your colour ink is down there is the possibility that the print may vary in colour.As the colour ink level decreases you might have got the error to change the ink. Hence it will tend to change the printing commands. To further confirm on this you can disconnect printer, uninstall and reinstall the printer software,then connect the printer for hardware detection and installation. now do a head cleaning maintenance and a test printing. If there is still no change it will be better to replace the colour cartridge after using the menu for ink cartridge changing so as to get the ink indication correct after installation. Hope you try this out. Good day

Hardly print in colour but run out of colour ink really quickly.


Really if you know you don't print in colour you can just decide to remove the colour ink from the printer and observe to know if it empties after a while which might mean that it was getting dried up somehow.

Do get back to me over this after you might have tried it out.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya.

It is printing everything with a green tint and I had not changed any settings. I have also gone out and bought two new ink cartridges thinking maybe the new one I had was defective. There is no change...


I have personally encountered similar problem in my work. There is no problem with your printer.

Sometimes when either of the inks overflow at the nozzle, it gets absorbed to an extent into another ink compartment. So that colour affected now prints another colour; the colour that has crept into its compartment, Sometimes it is serious at other times is not. If not serious, usually, after a few solid colour prints the colour affected returns to normal.

I do not know how much of a technical person you are, but I will give you the solution to returning your colours from green the right colour. Bring out your colour cartridge. Peel off the seal covering top of the ink cartridge. You will see the holes through which in is fed into it. Get a clean handkerchief, fold it and place over the top of the cartridge. Hold it over a bowl or something. Now place your mouth over the top with the handkerchief in between and blow hard. Ink will discharged at the nozzle. Clean off the ink. (At the nozzle do not rub only dab). Now press a piece of folded tissue to the nozzle firmly. It should be blotted with ink:- red, blue, yellow. If any colour is missing you may need to repeat the procedure. Once you get the three colours back, the issue is resolved.

ESPON Stylus Photo R200 Ink Status Problem


Hi,

The epson like many other brands actually uses a small amount of the coloured ink in order to give the black print a more polished look.

You must use your printers properties page to set printing mode to Greyscale if you don't want it to use the colours.

To do this go into your control panel, open the printers icon, and select your printer, right-click on it and select Properties from the grey menu.

You will have to look through the pages and find the setting or check box for Grayscale. When you find it, select it, then click ok at the bottom of the page. This will stop the printer from using coloured inks to tone the black print.


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

Epson sx200 One of the colour inks is empty and no print in black


Hi, this is not a solution because I don't think there is one apart from buying new inks. Epson and all other inkjet printers do this to prevent the coloured print head nozzles from getting blocked. If they are not used for a long time the ink dries up and blocks the nozzles. Epson recommends printing at least once a month with all colours to prevent this. Printing in black only option will only work if the colored inks are OK. Whenever the printer is turned on it performs a head clean, this is why the coloured inks get used over time even though they are not used for printing.

Have changed Ink Black and Colour... Stil getting error Message.


Make sure the tape covering the hole on the bottom of the black cartridge is removed. and then go into the printers folder and right click on your printer icon and go into the properties of that printer and there should be something in there to tell it that you changed cartridges and you can also print a test page as well.

Black colour ?


Thats because it's using the other colours to mix what it thinks to be shades of grey. Due to the black ink being pigment based and the colours inks dye base, when printing onto glossy paper the machine will use the colour dye based inks to make up black. 
If you were to print on plain paper, set to greyscale, then the machine will just use the black as the pigment ink sits onto of the plain paper and will not run should the paper get wet.  With glossy paper the ink has to be absorbed into the paper ad the Black pigment ink will not do this so the machine will use the coloured inks.

Sucks but true.
