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've just replaced the black ink cartridge for my Epson Stylus TX100, ink level is ok as the indicator shows. But i get blank prints for black, other colors are fine. What's wrong with the black ink...


There is nothing wrong with the black ink. Just run the head cleaning for better printing.

1. Go to printer and faxes
2. Right click your printer ( Epson Stylus Multifunction Printer/ Copier/ Scanner InkJet)
3. Click printing preferences
4. Click Maintenance Tab
5. Click Head Cleaning
6. Run head cleaning for 5 times then try printing.

My epson CX3900 not printing in black. colour printing is very good i did many head cleaning with the epson utility but not help at all. my black ink cartridge is full, is there any other way of fixing the...


1. Have you checked the protective tape that covers the contact area on the cartridge.
2. this may be a clogged head on the black cartridge side of the print head even though you used the print head cleaning utility.
3. You may have to contact the manufacturer to see what they recommend as how to clean the print head properly.

Epson CX3900 says all cartridges empty but not true


Did you use Epson Genuine Cartridges?

ALL…. Epson & Brother Requires Genuine Epson Cartridges. !!!!!!!!

Also go thru the utility to change cartridges. This will make the chip know that you have all new cartridges and will move the ink station in place.

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)

How do i install my new ink cartridges in my printer epsom


Be sure you have a new ink cartridge before you begin. Once you start the ink cartridge replacement procedure, you must complete all the steps in one session.
  1. Make sure the EPSON Stylus CX5400 is turned on and not printing. The LCD screen tells you which ink cartridge is low or empty.
  2. If your EPSON Stylus CX5400 is low on ink, press the left Menu button until you see Change Cartridge, then press the Color Copy button.

    If your EPSON Stylus CX5400 is out of ink, press the Color Copy button.

    The ink cartridges move to the replacement position.

  4. Lift up the scanner.

  5. ink_repl.jpg

  6. Pinch the tabs on the front and back of the cartridge, lift it out of the printer, and dispose of it carefully.

  8. Before you remove the new cartridge from its package, shake it four or five times.

  10. Unwrap the new ink cartridge and lower it into its holder, then press down on the top of the cartridge until it clicks in place.
  11. Caution: Don't touch the green circuit board on the back of the cartridge; you may inhibit normal operation and printing.

    If you need to replace other ink cartridges, repeat steps 4 through 6 before continuing with step 7.
  12. Carefully lower the scanner and press it down until it clicks into place. The EPSON Stylus CX5400 begins charging the ink delivery system.
  13. The On light flashes and the EPSON Stylus CX5400 makes noise. Charging takes about 30 seconds. When it's finished, the On light stops flashing and stays on.
    Caution: Never turn off the EPSON Stylus CX5400 while the On light is flashing, unless the Stylus CX hasn't moved or made noise for more than 5 minutes.

common issue, the printer will still shoot blanks even if you try another ink or do several head cleanings.
