Question about Epson Stylus DX4450 All-In-One InkJet Printer

2 Answers

When I change the ink cartridge on my Epson Stylus NX110 printer, it continually comes back saying the cartridge is not compatible, however, it is exactly the cartridge we have used since purchase. It is Epson #69 as instructed This happens every time a new cartridge is installed. This is the worst printer I've owned............and I've owned many since 1982.

Hi,
I also have a an Epson that takes the #69 cartridge. Whether or not I solve your issue, I suggest you call Epson and tell them about this issue. What you think and a piece of your mind. I've done it and they replaced my printer. I called their consumer relations relations and explained to them that I have owned Epson Printers for years which is true. That any time of the day or night I can find a 10 your old Epson dot matrix printer on Ebay, get it in the mail and it would work perfectly and be more dependable then what I have sitting in front of me. I would remind them that they have a great deal of experience building printers and ask them to restore my faith in them.
Now that I have soap boxed, lets get down to your printer.
The Epson has a circuit board installed in every cartridge itself. It is designed to shut down the printer when it is out of ink and to thwart any attempts to refill it. Your detection system is obviously malfunctioning.
This is what I would do, for what it is worth it sometimes works.
Using the Epson maintenance utility to change cartridges I would do the following:
1 Remove the cartridge
2 Remove all the rest of the cartridges
3 With a strong flashlight, look inside where the spring contact that the cartridges fit against in the head and brush out any possible debris you can find with an old toothbrush. You may want to put a small amount of rubbing alcohol or vodka (expensive rubbing alcohol) on the brush and wipe it over the contacts lightly. DON'T USE COTTON SWAB OR PAPER TOWEL AS PAPER WILL EASILY GET LODGED INTO THE MACHINE.
4 Use a cotton swab dipped in alcohol to remove any oily residue that may be on your four cartridges. JUST WIPE ONCE AND DRY WITH CLEAN PAPER TOWEL IMMEDIATELY.
5 INSTALL ALL FOUR CARTRIDGES INTO THE MACHINE.
6 RUN THE REST OF THE INSTALL UTILITY DOING RECHARGE AND CLEANING ACTIONS AS USUAL.
Tell me what happened.
I have had it work when I have removed all four cartridges, even though I am only changing one of them.
I hope this has helped.
Best Regards,
Mark

Replace Ink Cartridges
Your Epson Stylus NX110 Series and its software will let you know when an ink cartridge is low or expended.
If ink is low, the ink light flashes. You can continue printing until a cartridge needs replacement.
If a cartridge is expended, the ink light stays on. You must replace the cartridge to be able to print.
SEE IMAGE BELOW
Warning:
Keep ink cartridges out of the reach of children and do not drink the ink.
Note:
If you need to change a cartridge before it or any other cartridges are low or expended, run the Ink Cartridge Replacement utility.

You cannot print or copy when an ink cartridge is expended even if the other cartridges are not expended. Replace any expended cartridges before printing or copying.

Leave your old cartridges in the Epson Stylus NX110 Series until you are ready to
replace them to prevent the print head nozzles from drying out.
When an installed ink cartridge is more than six months old, you may need to replace it if your printouts do not look their best, even after cleaning and aligning the print head.
Follow the instructions in these sections to check and replace your ink cartridges:

Find the NX110 in the printers section of the control panel. Then right click your printer and choose "Printing Preferences" then the "Maintenance" tab. In there you will see a button for 'Replace ink cartrige'. Select that and it will take you through it step by step and even move the print heads to the correct position so you can change the ink.
