Question about Epson Stylus CX7800 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I just put all new ink cartridges in my Epson DX7800. I am unable to print because it states that my color ink is out. (Sometimes it says just one color, other times it will say two or all three.)
It does read the black ink as full. I didn't use Epson cartridges, but a compatible brand from myinks, whom my sister has always used without problems.
I believe the problem is with the printer as I have never used color ink to print with it since I've owned it, and yet it showed that all color ink was out after owning it just a few months. What's going on? (an email to Espon with the problem in the beginning about never using the ink from the color cartridges that came with the new printer was returned saying that this was b/c everytime you turn the printer on, it uses a little ink to clean the heads).
Now, with brand new full cartridges, I continue to have this problem. Any solutions?
I'm not familiar with your model but Epson has used a very durable ceramic printhead that had a fatal flaw; it wants to be used often, otherwise it clogs beyond restoration.
I have had to junk a number of Epsons (and some rebranded ones too) because of clogged printheads.
They work fine for a long time IF used daily.
The record was one branded Texas Instruments which died after not being used for 2 WEEKS.
I customarily recommended them for hard use but not for home users.
