    I replaced my ink cartridge's , but cant get printer to print, replaced with 69 ink but note says they are not compatible and to use 69/88.

    Is this what I need (69/88) or are they compatible?.

    I have followed the instructions in the manuel, and the disc to no avail.

    also this is a CX7400 printer, should they be the same?.

    How do I get an answer? my e-mail is usmctogo@yahoo.com

Maybe you didn't tear the protective adhesive from the cartridges.

I have an epson cx8400 and i replaced the black ink cartridge but theres an error message saying that i need to replace other ink coartridges. I just want to print in black, how do i bypass the error...


hello

i have this link below that gives you allinformation about your Epson printer. specifically the manual , required for review to address the issue with the ink cartridge error.

Run a Printer Check A printer check will help you determine if the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating properly. 1. Turn off the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series and your computer, if connected. 2. Disconnect any connected USB cables. 3. Load plain paper in the sheet feeder. 4. Press Setup. 5. Select Maintenance and press OK. 6. Select Nozzle Check and press OK. 7. Press cx7400_cx8400_ug.1.109.1.jpg Start. 8. The Epson Stylus CX8400 Series begins printing the nozzle check pattern. • If the page prints, your Epson Stylus CX8400 Series is operating. Your problem may be caused by your computer, cable, software, or setting selections. Check for additional solutions or re-install your software. If the pattern on the page has gaps, clean or align the print head. • If the page does not print, the Epson Stylus CX8400 Series may have a problem. Check for additional solutions. If they don't work, contact Epson.

I have an Epson CX8400 and have replaced the Epson ink cartridges with non-Epson ink cartridges. This has worked in other Epson printers I have owned, but this printer keeps coming up with error messages...


It sounds like the cartridge chips are incompatible so you've probably been sold/sent the wrong cartridges.

It's possible that the printer you have is a later version with an updated firmware which has been programmed to refuse cartridge chips that were compatible with the first printers produced of this model but as the CX8400 is a relatively old printer I'd be a bit surprised if that were the case.

It's also possible that the cartridge chips are badly aligned, soiled (ie: dirty), or that the contact wires in the printhead (the thin/delicate wires that make contact with the chip when the cartridge is installed) are damaged.

Easiest way to tell if the cartridge chips are the problem though is to get a completely different cartridge, preferably some originals and see if they are accepted or not.

Hope that helps.

I installed new epson ink cartrage, but printer has red x and tells me to change ink again.? Can i just change only the bkack ink?


Yes you should be able to just change the black ink cartrage, A lot of printer wont allow other third party cartrages, is it a genuine epson ink cartridge? if so try cleaning the contacts on the cartrage.

Color ink cartridge says empty i just filled it


When you put in a "new" cartrage the printer sens an electrical charge to the cartrage to set it up properly. So I would treat this as a new cartrage, rather than a refilled one. Go to the printer menu and re install the ink cartrage in question, it should recognise it and start the function as a new one, good luck

Epson cx8400 printer error


Basic thing to do is take out the inks.
Check for any obstructions in the printer ( packaging tapes ).
Reinsert the cartridges if same error persist

Recommendations > Have it returned / replaced to the Place of Purchase or Call Epson Tech Support
to avail the warranty options for your printer.

I believe it has a 1 year warranty from the date of purchase

be ready with the proof of purchase and serial number of the printer if your planning to call Epson Tech Support.

Replace ink cartridge


Took printer back- power up and take all carts out in sequence that would not register, then put them back in sequence- works fine now! At one time you could not do this with Epsons but it seems you can do so now. Printer happy- me happy- £50 worse off as bought another set of ink carts so I won't get caught out again with no ink. However given one black cart for my trouble so happy again.

Epson printer CX8400


Let me know if you find it--my computer and the printer show that my ink cartridges are full, but blank paper comes out when I try to print.
