Nope..if it's worked before, it may be that plugging it into the wall directly will help

Just tried top new black cartridge in - seems ok, but scanner not working and shows red light over ink sign


Clean cartridge with sof tissue and alcohol and insert it again, carefully.
btw: are you sure ink is NEW and not a refill? Refills should be good too but sometimes they fail.

My scanner wont work because I have run out of coloured ink - shouldnt I still be able to use the scanner??


having no ink should not affect the running of a scanner

make sure the scanner usb and power leads are securely seated

the drivers for the scanner might have been corrupted
you might have to uninstall the scanner restart your computer then reinstall your scanner
if your printer/scanner came with an installation disc the drivers could be on it
you might have to uninstall the printer/scanner restart your computer then reinstall the printer/scanner and its drivers

click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll to ports(COM&LPT) + to expand you should see a communication port and Ecp printer port you might see a yellow Question/exclamation ? ! mark or a red X this will mean you need to install a new driver for this device right click to update driver
select properties again you will have the similiar options also have option to troubleshoot

hope this helps you

Cartridge error 50C


Hi there Error 50c
This not same dell as yours but who knows it may well work for you.


Regarding the Dell A940 "Error 50c"....the user guide doesn't seem to mention "Error 50c". They do, however, mention a "Cartridge Error" on page 52 of the manual. They claim this means that the printer has detected a short circuit (fuse/resister) in the cartridge. As you may or may not have noticed in the manual, this is what they recommend doing about it:

1) Press Power to turn the printer off.

2) Lift the printer cover/lid (scanner unit) until the scanner support holds it open.

3) Turn the printer on.
The ink cartridge carrier moves and stops at the loading position unless the printer is busy.

4) Remove the color ink cartridge.

5) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.
If the error message displays again, replace the black cartridge with a new black cartridge.

If the error message does not display, repeat steps 1–3 and then go to step 6.

6) Reinstall the color cartridge and remove the black ink cartridge.

7) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If the error message displays again, replace the color cartridge with a new
color cartridge.
If there is no error message (indicated by flashing lights), repeat steps 1–3 and then reinstall both ink cartridges.
8) Lower the printer (scanner unit) until it is completely closed.

If you get the error message again, while both cartridges are installed, replace both of the cartridges.

Basically, what they want you to determine is,....if the short circuit is with the "black ink" cartridge or the "color ink" cartridge and then replace the cartridge that has the problem.

You may have to buy a new cartrige.
Please all I ask is call back and just gave a vote, it will gave me some satisfaction to know am helping some one, so I will keep on helping.

Epson CX7450 Black Ink Won't Work...


I was having the same problem. This fixed it:

Lift up the scanner bed (top part) of the printer to expose the cartridges.

Push the red triangle button once. Wait for the cartridge carrier to move to the middle. On the housing of the printer (the non-moving part), there is an arrow that will point to the empty cartridge.

Push the red triangle button again to see if the next cartridge is empty. Repeat this step, noting which cartridges are empty, until the cartridge carrier moves to the right. Now you can replace each cartridge that is empty.

After replacing the empty cartridges, push the red triangle button again, and the carrier will begin moving back and forth (cleaning itself). Once it stops, it should be positioned on the far right side.

Lower the scanner bed to "close" the printer. The ink light should go off and you should be able to print.

I am trying to refill my ink cartridge and i dont know how. HELP!!!


When your ink starts getting low, you will see a red light flashing on the printer. There is a tear drop shape next to the indicator light on the top of the printer. You can keep printing until the light stays red. Once the light stays red, they will need to be changed. When you need more ink, Epson will have a window pop up on your computer wanting you to purchase ink from them. You do not need to do this. We bought our ink cartridges at Best Buy. This printer uses DuraBrite Ultra Ink. There are 2 types; 69 or 88. They recommend 69 for heavy use and 88 for moderate use. The 88 has about half the ink the 69 does. We buy the 69 because it lasts much longer. We use this printer about 3 times a week on average and we haven’t had to change the ink for about 6 months. The 69 black ink at Best Buy is less than $20.00 and the color ink is about $14 for each of the 3 colors. The color 88 comes with all 3 in a pack and it’s about $30.00.

You should not remove any old cartridges until you are ready to replace them because if there isn’t any in there it can dry out the nozzles. You open the scanner and press the stop button and the printer head moves to the correct position. Open the cover and squeeze the tabs that are there and remove the old ones. Then as mentioned in the set up, insert each one in the correct color and press until they click. This printer was actually the easiest that I have ever had when it came to changing the ink. Another thing that you should know is that you cannot refill the cartridges. They have to be new.
