Will the Epson cx3900 print if one of the coloured cartrige is empty


No unfortunately the printer will not print unless all cartridges are present and have an adequate supply of ink inside them. Even if your only printing black and the black cartridge is there and full, it will still need the color cartridge ot be present and partically full of ink in order to print.

I have a Stylus CX 5000 with a new black ink cartrige and empty color cartriges. I only need black/white printed material. It won't print at all. What can I do to make it print just black and white...


Epson software does not permit printing when any of the cartridges are empty. It is a way to make sure you purchase more ink (It stinks, we all agree). They also use the color cartridges to make up black ink, then print the black over the top!! Again a way to make sure it uses more ink than it is supposed to.
Good thing is there are plenty of compatibles on the market that work very well and cost much less than Epson OEM's.
Sorry it is not the answer you are looking for.

Why it can't print?


It won't print if your ink cartridge is empty. Check the black and white and also the color cartrides by doing the following:

1. Slide your hand underneath the front cover and open up the case.

2. Find your ink cartrides usually located on the left on the inside of the casing.

3. Gently pull up (usually) on the cartridge and take it out and shake it. You will know if it is empty or full when you shake it. If the color is full but the black and white is out that is probably the problem. Many printers won't work if the black and white cartridge is empty because that's usually the primary color.

4. Go to Walgreen's or a similiar store and purchase a new cartridge and then just reverse the steps putting it back in. Make sure you take note where each cartride is located when taking them out and put them in their correct position when you put them back in.

This should solve your problem and you should be printing again in no time flat!

I need to replace the color ink in my Epson stylus color 740


To force a Cartridge change press and hold down the Paper feed (load eject) button for over 5 seconds and the cartridges will move into a change position. Please note: if the cartridges move to a position where only the Black cartridge can be changed pressing the Paper feed button once will move the head so that the colour can be changed.

Before changing the carts it is recommended that you run the head cleaning utility.

When you have poor print quality and have tried the head cleaning utility it is recommended that you replace the cartridges. Ift the red lights aren't on to indicate the ink is out you need to force the cartridges into a change position. To do this press and hold down the paper feed button (load eject) for over 5 seconds and the cartridges will move into a change position. Please note: if the cartridges move to a position where only the Black cartridge can be changed pressing the Paper feed button once will move the head so that the colour can be changed.

How to change ink cartridges


There are 3 buttons on the front of printer - press and hold the button on the left (with pics of ink drops) for THREE seconds, this will move the cartridges to the remove position.

My problem is that the cartridges are knackered but the printer still thinks there's ink in them and when I press the button it goes into head cleaning mode. I can't figure out how to move the cartridges!!!!
