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)

My ink cartridges are full but when I print something it does not print blue or green. What can I do?


Assuming you've recently changed your ink cartridges the first thing you can try is seeing if you've placed the cartridges properly (did you remove all the plastic covering the cartridge so the ink can flow into the printer?)

If you haven't actually changed your cartridges in a while the printer might be registering the wrong ink levels. This will result in your cartridges not being as full as you think.

Another thing you could try is checking the printer head for anything that's keeping the ink from flowing. By printer head I mean the thingy that houses your ink cartridges. Perhaps there's some old dried up ink blocking the way?

Hi, I desperately need immediate help about how I can refill HP deskjet 1050 cartridges printer. Just refilled using syringe needle but the printer won't print and the cartridges ink level is showing...


Your printer will be using either of the foll:
HP 802 Black Ink Cartridge CH563ZZ
HP 802 Small Black Ink Cartridge CH561ZZ
HP 802 Small Tri-color Ink Cartridge CH562ZZ
HP 802 Tri-color Ink Cartridge CH564ZZ

after refill, use a dry tissue paper to wipe the head....(small metal head with 2 lines for ink flow in the bottom of the cartridge)...u also need to clean the small metal dots(15 to 20) on the cartridges...(these dots are for data....trf... connecting the cartridges to the printer....)

keep cleaning till the ink flow is fast and your tissue has lot of ink marks....hold the tissue in one hand (pam) and press the head to the tissue....move the cartridge on the tissue in a manner from say top to bottom of your pam....do this 5 to 6 times till the ink starts to flow smooth....

if the above does not give you the desired result....of clean ink flow....

the other option is to immerse the cartridge head (only) in hot boilling water.....
to do this....
boil water in a bowl....remove bowl from gas stove / microwave....pour the hot water in another bowl(normal temp...it will help you hold the bowl with your hand...just the water will be hot ) and immerse the cartridge head portion in it for some mins...till you can see the ink come out....wait...... and use the above tissue clean process for some time.....re-do the process if you dont see the ink flow...in the tissue....once you note lot of ink in the tissue....wipe the cartridge dry and install in printer and do a test print.....

you can also reset the ink level....give me some tiem and i will let you knwo how do that...

once you can print.....let me know....i will tell you the reset trick....

I just changed my black cartridge and the printing


Dip the bottom of the cartridge in some hot water. This should open the head so the ink can flow out freely. Once the ink is flowing into the water remove and dry the whole cartridge. Insert into printer and print.



Good Luck

How do I change the toner?


The Fax-2480c does not use toner cartridges.
This is an inkjet and so uses ink cartridges.

There are 4 cartridges, black, yellow, cyan (blue) and magenta (red). If any of these cartridges are empty, you need replace them.

This machine takes LC-51 cartridges.
You're probably out of warranty so jsut get refills... it's cheaper

I changed all Print cartridges-Black, Yellow,Cyan,Blue


On this machine you have to install inks with power on and use the ink button and choose replace ink. If you just plug them in it won't register and reset the counts. You may need to run clean cycles at least twice to get proper colors.

My printer is printing in pink color how can i change it to black


Sounds like your black cartridge is either empty or clogged. Take out the black cartridge and press the print head against a moist paper towel. You should see a nice black rectangle, if you don't you could try placing the print head on a wet paper towel for a few minutes to wick out the ink (ink may seep through the paper towel so beware what surface you do this on). If after this there is still no ink flowing, buy a new cartridge.

Changed cartidges & now black and blue don't print on C88+


Try to remove and reinstall the blue and black cartridge and check if you punctured the plastic cap underneath the cartridge itself. then reinstall it and make sure you hear a click or it snaps in. try head cleaning cycle from the utility and print a nozzle check pattern. If same output maybe carts are bad. If that is a genuine epson ink cartridge, call epson and have the ink cartridges replace since they are new ones and for sure epson will send inks since you just bought it. make sure you have date of purchase handy.

pls dont 4get to rate solution if it helps... thanks!!

Hi meemee, If ink comes out of the ink nozzles on the cartridge then you probably just need to reset the printer page counter. Each time the cartridge is removed from the printer an empty cartridge message appears and a blinking amber light will display on the printer. Hold the paper feed button down for 3-5 seconds, and that should override the counter. If ink isn?t coming out of the ink nozzles then you may have an air pocket preventing the flow of ink. Try running your printer cleaning cycle a couple of times to see if that helps. Lastly you might try letting the cartridge site for 24 hours to let gravity try to fix it. As a last resort you can try unplugging your refill hole in the cartridge. If your cartridge ink is going to flow it will now, just be ready to re-plug the fill hole. Let us know how it goes and don?t forget to rate the post.
