Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

My Epson SX405 prints as if it were running out of ink even though I just changed the black cartridge. This does not happen when I first switch on - it usually starts to happen after a few sheets have been printed without problem. I print only black and have the printer on black mode. Then I get alternate lines printed greyish or not at all. How do I resolve this? Roger Crossley

Go into the epson printer software tools and select "Nozzle Check" After you do that, you will need to use the print head alignment utility. You can access this utility by Clicking Start, Select settings and then Printers. Right click on the relevant printer and select Printing Preferences. Click on the utility tab and select Print Head Alignment Click on the link below to read more:

Hi, my cyan cartridge has ran out of ink and now it wont let me print until its been replaced even though im printing in black and white? and advice?xxxx


Epson will not let you print unless you have all the cartridges in with ink. Even though I was printing in Black, I noticed all my cartridges were running out of ink, so I sent Epson an email. Got a response, and they explained, that it has to have in all cartridges.
Weird eh? Crooked, if you ask me.

Good Luck.

Colour Ink Jet Cartridges emptying during a black ink print run


Hi,
If you go to your printer properties, there should be a setting whereby you have to select the option to "PRINT USING BLACK CARTRIDGE ONLY". Make sure this option is selected, otherwise your printer will use ALL colors even if you only print black.
Let me know if you need any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graemevm

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.

Try changing it in the properties section under device settings
or go to color management if you have it and change the setting to black only,.

Possible to print only black when colour cartridges are empty?


This printer does not let you print if even one of the cartidges is out of ink. I suggest you replace them and then in the printer properties change your settings to the way you want color to be spent.
